London Retro Glasses and Giveaway

I have to say, when I received these glasses, a certain lyric from the infamous 'Being a D**khead's cool' sprang to mind: '20-20 vision just a pair of empty frames.' Truth is, I don't actually need these glasses. Ok, glad we got that little embarrassment over with. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying the way they highlight some of my sterling eyeshadow work, and though I wouldn't wish for slightly impaired sight it's pretty clear that if you're forced to wear a pair of specs that there's an option or two out there to look super stylish.

When MyOptique got in contact with me to sing the praises of a glasses brand named London Retro, I was very excited to see a range so inspired by London, especially it's swinging 60's vibe. Basically I'm a sucker for anything London inspired, if you're particularly eagle eyed you'll see below that I have a tube station inspired bedding. London Retro's glasses cover all aspects of the metropolis, from Carnaby to Chancery, with all sorts of different specs shapes to suit different faces. Their most recent collection is named after tube stations, so you can pick your favourite (for me, it has to be the District line).

I picked up the Fitzrovia glasses, a pretty traditional rounded pair which suits all face shapes (confirmed when all my flatmates passed them round in the inevitable 'try on someone else's glasses' game). They're a really classic shape and do wonders for highlighting your eyes.

  17. You're a lucky thing not needing to wear glasses out of necessity, but you do look pretty fabulous in them! I'm short sighted, so I have to wear glasses often (for seeing the tv, laptop, reading, seeing..! haha). I love the Highgate frames, they're pretty similar to the Gok Wan Specsavers ones I already have :) I follow already via GFC but I'm a Bloglovin' follower now too :) xxx
