I was actually going to make a completely different post with a little glasses-related 'by the way' at the beginning, but I've actually rambled enough to make this its own post hoho. I think I'll continue writing and queue them? I have never once used the queue function so let's hope it works.
I have managed to acquire two pairs of glasses since my last glasses post. Apparently it got me in a glasses mood? Gave me some glasses awareness?
1. These glasses from Glassesshop.
Here's the link to the exact product page. They're pretty great and I've been getting a bunch of compliments on them (always a good sign). I didn't get my prescription lenses put in these because my prescription is probably too strong to be able to be put in free. However, if you have a normal prescription (anything less than blind as a bat really), your lenses are included in the price. Pretty good!
If I'm being honest about them though, they are very plasticy feeling and don't feel as high quality as my other frames. So if you're looking for something that lasts a long time, I'm not sure these will do it for you. However, this is arguably reflected in the price. I've just been wearing them as an extra accessory.
2. Shelled out on these Ksubi frames. The design is actually a couple of years old by now but they were just perfect for me so I had to get them. I've always wanted thick rimmed black glasses but as I'm so blonde, pasty and small-faced (hoho) they almost always look way too much on me. I just randomly tried these on and they actually looked great! They have a bit of gold on them too.
Do you guys know any glasses blogs you could recommend? Good glasses stores?
