Fellow four-eyes will know, there's no joy quite like getting a new pair of specs. The world is crisper and clearer, with no scratches or thumbprints to spoil the view. After receiving these beauties c/o Pret a Voir, I watched the new Game of Thrones in wide-eyed excitement - Westeros has never looked so sharp!
Glasses, Dior c/o Pret a Voir
I've written about buying glasses online a few times - I'm not always entirely convinced it's the best way to shop for specs, and do generally prefer the safety of an actual opticians when choosing my glasses. But when Pret a Voir got in touch and I clocked the MASSIVE range of designer frames on their site, I was more than convinced.
I am a total snob when it comes to specs and much prefer the pricier designer frames. My theory is, they're basically my eyes and surely my eyes deserve Dior? Yep, I think so too.
I chose this Dior pair - they're quite a lot bigger than the frames I usually go for but I wanted something a bit more dramatic. It's always a risk not being able to try them on first, but Pret a Voir offer free returns for 7 days after you've received your specs, so if they weren't right I'd be able to send them straight back. Plus, the prices on Pret a Voir are BRILLIANT - the frames are very reasonable (£163 for Dior!) and single vision lenses are free too. Much cheaper than your high street optician.
They've taken a bit of getting used to, but I'm delighted with my new 'eyes'. I didn't get chance to snap a pic of me in them, but here's a specs selfie (gonna coin that term right now) so you can see what they look like on. Love them!
Have you ever used Pret a Voir? These Miu Miu sunnies are next on my list...
