Carnaby, Bailey & Fitzrovia by London Retro

 It's been back to school, well really work this week. At the moment I'm kind of going through this weird transition period at work, so I decided I wanted to get a new look going on (yes I have ordered a lot of New Girl-esque smock dresses, and have got the old Russell & Bromley loafers out as well  as rocking some black wedge heels where now I actually have some height to my 5ft 2 body!). 
I already owned 2 pairs of London Retro glasses (one of which is pictured above), but I decided some new frames were perfect for adding to a fresh new look.

I brought these frames from Glasses Direct a year or so ago, I have a pair in tortoiseshell & a pair in black. These are the Fitzrovia frames.

I can't remember where I saw the Carnaby frames first, but all I can remember is when I saw them, I knew they had to be mine! These are one of my most recent purchases, and honestly I love them so much. The colour is just amazing, and I think it quite matches my red hair!

The Bailey design caught my eye as a sort of cross between geeky specs & 60s fashion. 
I wasn't sure how well these would suit me, but Glasses Direct offer a free second pair, and free returns so I thought I'd give it a go. I've seen other bloggers have a good success with the home trial too, where you can order 4 pairs of glasses to try then send back the ones you don't want. 

London Retro are by far my favourite brand for eyewear… they are statement, yet classic. 
What eyewear brands do you wear?

  3. I actually don't wear eyewear at all, though my mom gave me a pair from Salvatore Ferragamo before sending me off for college. Anyways, about the home trial--it sounds very similar to what Warby Parker offers! (or at least from what I've heard from watching Tyler Oakley's YouTube videos haha) I love the tortoise shell frames :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
