So if you follow me on instagram, you may have already seen me showing off my new glasses. I was asked to pick a pair from Glasses Direct, so I thought I'd let you know my thoughts on the glasses and my experience with using the website. I've used Glasses Direct before for sunglasses (as part of another review here) but this time I wanted to pick a pair of proper glasses. I already have a pair of black framed 'geek' glasses - you know the ones I mean, but this time I wanted a smarter pair, and in a warmer tortoise shell colour. I love the glasses from London Retro - they have such a good range of styles that I really struggled to find a pair I liked. The website makes it easy to filter through all the glasses by colour, brand, price range etc. I knew I wanted a dark tortoise shell finish so I filtered the results and finally settled on the London Retro District frames in 'Havana'.
The glasses arrived within 7 days and I had an email to let me know when they'd been dispatched. The frames were exactly what I'd hoped and I'm so happy with them. They also come in a really lovely brown leather case, which makes a nice touch as well. The good thing about Glasses Direct is that you get a free home trial for 7 days where you can pick up to 4 pairs to try on at home. You can then pay for the ones you like, and send the others back in a free post envelope. How handy is that?
At the moment and until the 1st of November, Glasses Direct are offering 50% off most frames over £55 if you use the code 'SPOOKY' at the checkout. They have plenty of other offers throughout the year (including a free second pair when you spend over £55), so you can always get a good deal.
What do you think of these frames?
