|I've got new face furniture|
Being a life long glasses and contact lens wearer finding cool glasses which don't make me feel like Deidre Barlow always make me a happy speccy four eyes.
I've been on the hunt for a really cool quite retro looking pair of specs for a while so when Specsavers approached me to tell me about their new Monochrome range which had been inspired by the catwalks and asked if I would like to take a look (and choose a pair for myself) I didn't need asking twice.
|Ready to pick some face furniture|
Once I had been given the news yet again that I was Mrs Magoo I got to the fun part of trying on lots of gigs.
I really like a strong looking frame but when you are looking for statement glasses its always a fine line between looking like Jess from New Girl and Sue Pollard.
|Gok Wan Specs-very cool|
|I really liked these Osiris frames but they were slightly too big for my peanut head|
|These frames really reminded me of the free NHS glasses I wore as a kid. I hated them at the time-they look quite cool now|
|Another Gok pair-not sure why I'm wearing such a bitchface|
|The lovechild of Sue Pollard and Timmy Mallet|
I particularly loved a lot of the Gok Wan range (I'm not surprised his frames are so stylish) but in the end opted for a pair by Replay which had just the right combination of fifties cool and Beryl from on the buses.
|My final choice|
One of the things that was very cool at Specsavers was that they had a device which took photos of you in each pair you tried on so you could look at yourself properly. Such a great idea especially if like me you are really shortsighted.
|Its like a myopic Andy Warhol painting|
I've had this pair for a few weeks now and absolutely love them. I'm a fat chick in glasses, something that's been the butt of many a joke over the years but far from feeling frumpy I feel awesome.To all the kids who picked on me at school-whose laughing now? me because my glasses look fine.
|I'm calling this look foxy four eyes|
