Have you ever tried to go shopping with small children? It can be a hard task at the best of times, but when you are shopping for something they are not remotely interested in then the task gets ten times harder. Add into the mix of making a pressured choice on what can be the expensive choice of glasses and it makes me want to leave the shop without purchasing anything.
This was hubby and I last year and we resolved never to take the children with us when we went to our eyes tested again. We were resigned to separate trips but the problem with that is you don’t get your partners input on some thing (in hubbies case) you wear on your face everyday.
The glasses solution.
Specspost have the solution and I wish I heard of it sooner. When I asked to review some glasses for hubby and some sunglasses for me that we chose online and had delivered so we could try on and make a un-pressurised decision in our own home. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect idea.
We took our time choosing some glasses and sunglasses from the wide range online and then waited for them to be delivered.
They looked like their photos from the website and we had fun trying them on and taking the photos. I hadn’t quite realised how difficult they might be to photograph.
Our glasses choices
For me the choice of my favourite was simple I loved the Jasmine cats eye sunglasses (on the right) with their flattering vintage shape and graduated tint.
Hubby had a more difficult choice but eventually plumped for the Avanti major semi rimless glasses (bottom left) which fit well with the shape of his face.
What do you think? Did we make the right choices?
The great thing is once you’ve picked the frames you send them back with your prescription and they fit the lenses.
If you want to avoid the stress and take more time over your choice, i would definitely recommend specspost.
We were sent a pair of glasses each for free in exchange for our honest review. You can read more in my advertising and disclosure policy.
