Every time Specsavers launches their fashion collections I get rather excited and this time it is no different: at their recent meet the designers showcase in London, I could count at least ten pairs I wanted straight away!
You probably noticed from one of my outfit posts that I am a specs wearer, and I was very happy to be invited by Specsavers to try one of their fabulous glasses and picked a lovely Osiris frame.
The glasses mecca is very well-known nationwide and I ended up in their Tottenham Court Road branch, in London. With the specialist help at hand, I was able to pick my favourite frames which then received my prescription lenses (I had an eye test with Specsavers in March anyway, so I didn’t have to have a new eye test). The lovely Laura from Beattie Communications was also there to provide much needed girly advice.
I had already decided I wanted cat-eye shaped glasses and wanted to stay away from my always reliable black frames. So I mentioned that to the assistant and he was very thorough in finding all the frames in the shape I wanted.
In the end, I was between three frames: two from Osiris and a Karen Millen – two involving leopard print – and ended up settling for the gorgeous Osiris B39, a dark purple cat eye shaped frame. I chose that as it was the biggest shape of the three and I thing bigger frames look best on my face, which is heart shaped with not so delicate features, so the bigger frames balances it out quite well.
The frame is of excellent quality, very well finished, with a flexible hinge and fashionable – I hear this on has just arrived and at the moment they are on a 2 for 1 offer, and they price on the sticker already includes single vision lenses! 🙂
My lenses weren’t available immediately; in some cases, they can do that for you straight away, which is great! My non-reflective lenses took only a couple days to be put on my chosen frame and upon collection the service was impeccable – quick, friendly, attentive, even though the shop was full. I had a little adjustment to the legs, which got done pretty quickly, and the assistant told me I could take them to any shop to have any others done after I wear them for a bit – which I did for a small adjustment to the nose bridge. It is great to count with some after purchase service!!!
So, I am in love with my frames and really impressed with the overall service received at Specsavers – a great start to this intimate relationship, I am sure me and my specs are going to be happily ever after.
