These days I'm finding that I have to wear my glasses more and more as I tend to be on the computer a lot and also find myself watching too many episodes of the Tudors on Netflix. Luckily for me wearing glasses isn't quite the fashion woe it once was as there are so many frames around these days that we're often spoilt for choice. The London Retro Carnaby* frames were kindly sent to me a couple of weeks ago which happened to be perfect timing considering I was on the lookout for some new frames after my prescription had once again changed.
I've always been a fan of the somewhat retro thick black frame so of course this was something I opted for on this occasion. Seeing as I wear glasses for driving, watching TV, lectures and being on the computer I wanted a frame that I was going to feel comfortable in as I would be wearing them quite a lot. I have to say that I have not been disappointed with this frame at all or indeed the prescription lenses that were put in for me for the purpose of this review. The quality is perfect and really impressed me as I did wonder what they would be like. Of course when popping on a new pair of glasses with my correct prescription in it was like a whole new revelation, my garden had never looked so crisp and green! You never quite realise just how much your prescription can change until you put on your new pair.
The frame itself is light weight and feels comfortable to wear even after a few hours watching one too many episodes of The Tudors (I'm obsessed). Arriving in a sturdy well-presented case I feel I have a really good quality pair of glasses here that will not only last me a long time but will also look on trend and smart too.
Glasses Direct has a huge range of glasses online whereby I have to say the London Retro range has really captured my interest. With a wide variety of frames for both men and women there is a style that I'm sure would appeal to everyone on there. Of course there are plenty of other brands on there too so it's worth having a look if you're in the market for some new specs!
