For the vast majority of my life, I’ve been four-eyed. However, since my prescription is deep and my face is wide, it’s always been a pain to find a pair of specs that are actually flattering on me. As such, I’ve generally shied away from wearing glasses in public. Unfortunately, years of wearing contacts have begun to take a toll on the health of my eyes… and I’ve recently been told by my optometrist that I need to give them a rest.
Enter Spectacle Shoppe. When they got in touch a while ago about setting me up with the perfect pair of glasses, I gladly agreed to let them try their luck at something I’d long ago deemed impossible. And they certainly delivered: I went in last week and have never met a team so passionate about fitting the right pair of glasses for an individual – taking into consideration all factors like personality, face shape, prescription, and style.
I brought home two picks to test run before they put the lenses in my final choice: a slightly more quirky and fun You’s Amsterdam pair (left), and a classic tortoise-shell, cat-eyed Jimmy Choo pair. I think I’m a pretty bad judge of what looks good here, so I need your help (please)! Which pair do you prefer?
