Admission time. A while ago I sat on my glasses… and they broke. Oops. Since then I’d been struggling along with some £1 Primark badboys and probably damaging my eyes even more in the process but now everything has changed thanks to Glasses Direct.
I was very kindly offered a pair of glasses from the new London Retro range but wasn’t too sure what frame would suit my face thanks to my delightfully chubby cheeks. Luckily Glasses Direct offer a free home trial and so after a few clicks four pairs of glasses were winging their way to me to try out. I can’t even express how grateful I am for this, because it gave me the chance to try out the frames in the comfort of my room to get the best idea of which pair was right for me. It also meant I could take a wee selfie or seven to send to my pals and see what they thought too – bonus!
In the end I settled on the Ohara frames in red* and boy are they great. I had forgotten how nice it was to actually be able to, y’know, read things. Which is kind of important! I think the red frame works really well as it’s dark without being as harsh as a black frame would be. At first I wasn’t 100% sure on the size as they are a wee bit bigger than my last pair, but now I have fallen head over heels and have had plenty of compliments on them, which is always a win. Plus my favourite character in Nurse Jackie is Dr Ohara and now I feel like I can truly embody her sass and strength to my full potential. The quality of these glasses is just impeccable and they also come with a super cute case to keep them safe. Hopefully I won’t sit on these!
Glasses Direct also offer a great range of designer glasses in their boutique section and it’s fair to say that I have my eye on a fair few pairs should I ever need a back up. Overall I’m seriously impressed with how easy and quick the service was to use, especially as in the past I had been a little reluctant to order my glasses online! I cannot recommend it enough as it’s an ideal way to find your perfect pair.
