LONDON RETRO ELWOOD
These retrospective London Retro Elwood glasses have become my favourite pair of reading glasses at the moment with the large retro frames and design. Sleek and durable, these are so easy to wear and look stylish at the same time! Finished off with a polished look and shiny black coating.

They come with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective lenses, making them perfect for wearing when on the laptop or watching TV, with the anti-glare properties. These make such a timeless design and prevent my eyes from straining when reading, or on the laptop for long periods of time. I also notice how these reduce headaches, and when I do forget to wear them, my eyes get really sore and strained, alongside light headaches throughout the day. I am short sighted and need to use glasses often when at home, but the beauty of these glasses is the fact you can wear them outdoors as well as indoors for fashion/style purposes.
The glasses come in a high-quality leather case, which is based on the London Underground station for the ‘Metropolitan Collection’. You can get these with or without a prescription, but mines come with as I find it useful for everyday use, especially when blogging and editing photos. These ones have a clear lens and come with pin detailing, alongside hidden metallic plates on the interior with the London Retro branding and steel barrel hinges, for added durability.
The Glasses Direct service was excellent, and I also like how you can shop lots of brands in the boutique section, from designer glasses to everyday classic designs at a fraction of the price. In all honesty, I find Glasses Direct much cheaper than other companies, especially when you go to get your eyes tested and recommended prescription glasses, sometimes there can be hidden fees! Glasses Direct have a pretty nifty system where you can try a free 7 day home trial of 4 frames you like, to then try at home before committing to buy. The great thing about the home trial is it gives you the freedom to try each pair on and see how they feel and look, without the commitment of paying upfront 🙂 If there’s one thing I hate, is the fact you get rushed with picking glasses in Spec Savers! I get my eyes tested every two years and always feel rushed when it comes to picking glasses, and they don’t really talk you through what’s best for you or prices! I think buying online is the way to go now, and much cheaper.
Do you wear glasses for everyday purposes or more for fashion?
