There’s A First Time For Everything


It’s not often that I get seen wearing my glasses. I get that second glance from people followed by the obvious question ‘do you wear glasses’?

Now that summer is clearly over and I have no real reason to wear my contacts so I can whip out my sunglasses anymore {still on reserve for blog shoots}, it’s about time I embraced my glasses.

So, how do I look in this newbie from Vision Direct?.

Wearing: Glasses c/o Vision Direct (The frame I’m wearing is called Debbie)

Oh, and I remember my first eye test, it was a long process, the only fun part was choosing and trying on frames…and opting for the pair my parents thought looked best on me, which I bet wasn’t my first choice.

Fast forward to now, I still like to try on frames, I know what suits me. This came in handy when choosing this pair on Vision Direct. Yes, I’m sitting here feeling very modern and pretty smug having shopped online for a pair of glasses.

The process is not complicated or long winded – I promise. If there is anyone who does not like complicated, that me, so trust me. So long as you have your prescription, it’s easy! Like I said, it did help that I had an idea what type of frames suit me, I still used the ‘virtual try on’ before purchasing these. Alternatively, I could have opted for the ‘try on at home’ which VisionDirect also offer. Before I knew it, my new glasses had arrived.

The whole process is really not different from shopping for clothes or anything online – know your size, find what style you like, buy! If you have mastered that, then…

On that note, guys, tell me what my response should be when people go “oh do you wear glasses”?

a. Yes, umm, I’m a super geek whose needed glasses since the age of 10  – ok, I’m not a geek at all, just for dramatics.

b. Yes, and I look damn sexy in these, don’t I?

c. _______ (fill in the blanks)

    You picked well, those frames look great on you! 🙂 I only wear glasses to read or work on the computer so every now and then a new person in the office will do a double take if they see me at my desk for the first time wearing them, haha!

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and you got some great stuff in the sales! 🙂
