London Retro Retrospectiv..

London Retro Loren Frames*

It doesn't seem to matter how much time I spend browsing the internet or looking at photos, I can never seem to figure out what kind of glasses suit me from the website. Luckily, Glasses Direct offer a rather good home trial service, so you can pick a few pairs and try them on at home. So much better than being hassled to make a decision in the opticians.

After browsing the Boutique for a while and deciding that I'm probably not brave enough for designer frames, I found myself going back to London Retro, whose glasses I've had before and really like.
The shape of the Loren frames drew me in but initially I was a little wary that the shape might not do me any favours. On the contrary; then they arrived and I tried them on, I decided that I love them.

What do you think?

    1. Thanks!! I just have to remember to actually use them, now.

  2. I love these frames, they really suit you! xx

    1. Thank you, I'm never quite sure what suits my face.

  3. Gorgeous! I'm very lucky that the lady that works in the optician loves me coming in and chats about shoes! She gets me a seat and spends ages with me going through everything they have or looking up catalogues for what I like. My prescription didn't change much last time, so seeing as I already have two pairs of perfectly good glasses, I resisted buying new ones!

    1. Oh, it's goood that they give you plenty of choosing time. I always feel a bit hassled in the local optician.
