London Retro 'Piccadilly' c/o Glasses Direct *
Well hello! So here's me just casually hanging out in a pair of sunglasses .. indoors, as typically it rained on the day I planned to take pictures. I could be a successful weather girl if I based my report around days that I plan to take pictures - guaranteed rain, every time! Anyway, a few weeks ago the team at Glasses Direct got in touch and asked me to review a pair of sunglasses from the new London Retro Collection. I hadn't heard of the site before but I'd swooned over London Retro a lot, and was super excited to try a pair. I went for the Piccadilly frames in black, which are a classic shape with a bit of a 60's vibe. I feel like they have an ever-so-slight cat eye shape to them too, which I love. These are one of those styles that I think would suit everyone!
These are available as standard prescription glasses too, and they even offer a free home trial where you can try out 4 pairs of your choice for 7 days. I remember glasses shopping a few years ago, and I ended up giving up and picking a pair out of sheer frustration because I was so sick of trying on glasses. Needless to say, I wore them once! Lesson learned - take your time, it's important, they're going to be on your face.
They come in this gorgeous embossed brown leather case and call me crazy, but this makes them feel so special. Presentation earns a lot of extra points in my books! It's a lovely case and really sturdy too, so I know they're safe in my big, overfilled bag. The glasses are lightweight but you can feel that they're good quality and well made.
There's lots of other designer sunglasses and prescription glasses available on the website - let me know which ones are your favourites? You'll probably be seeing a lot of these in future outfit posts - so I hope you like them!
Which sunglasses shape do you usually go for? Do you have a favourite pair?
