Life Style


Specs.:Ace & Tate:.

For years I’ve been wearing contact lenses daily, with my excuse for not ever wearing glasses being that I didn’t like mine. But the time came to get my eyes tested and with my eyes getting close to a blind bat’s (the constant staring at the computer screen/iPhone/iPad has obviously not helped!), I thought it was time to invest in some new specs and occasionally give the old eyes a rest from contacts. After trying a load on in quite a few opticians, I found one or two that I liked, but with the overwhelming price tags, I looked online. I happened to stumble on Amy’s post about Ace & Tate, so the researched started. Designed in Amsterdam and handmade in Italy, without the ridiculous price tags, I was sold. You can even send them back within 30 days if you’re not happy with them, so I thought what have I got to lose?

Specs.:George in Amber Burst:.

I picked these tortoiseshell coloured frames as I thought the colour would be a bit softer on my face as well as a bit more interesting than black. I love the largeness of them, especially when you have big eyes and a steep bridge of your nose, bigger is better!

Specs.:Ellis in Transparent Beige:.

An unusual choice, channelling a bit of granny chic in these transparent beige Ellis frames. You might have guessed by now that I love neutral colours so when I saw these, I was intrigued and I think I like them.

Specs.:George in Amber Burst:.

As I’m so used to wearing contacts, I’m not really accustomed to not being able to see and the problem of the sun came up.  So prescription sunglasses also happened! I liked the George frames again in the sunglasses collection and I’m pretty happy with those!

Now I’m just getting used to my stronger prescription and having glasses on my face all day!

What do you think about my new frames?

    I love them! Those prescription sunglasses are also genius. Like you, I’ve been wearing contacts for years straight because of not liking glasses, but I feel it may be time to branch out and find some glasses I like if only to give my eyes a break…
