Fabulous Frames for Fabulous Face Shapes

We all know that choosing the right frames and glasses can be difficult. What colour shall I go for?  What style suits me best?  Will it look good with my facial features?  These are all the questions that often run through your mind, however to make this task easier you should know your face shape. By knowing what shape your face is, you can determine which styles will make you look hot to trot.  To determine your face shape, use a camera to capture your face then trace around the outline of your face using tracing paper or even an online drawing app.  Another method is to look in the... read more

While the product line up and general store layout was good, and the staff attentive (as you would expect from a well known high street opticians) the prices of many of the displayed designer ... read more

Five Luscious Must Have Prada Frames

Prada PR 23OV Prescription Glasses from SelectSpecs.com

I want ALL of these five PRADA frames.  Should I own all five pairs?

Founded by Mario Prada in 1913 these PRADA frames all have a strong identity and will appeal to both young or older generations. The frames are also of supreme quality and I adore them all!!

Google Glass – Hot or Not!

Google glass is being tested by a wide range of people, such as Doctors, Hikers, Teachers, DJ’s and even Zookeepers. At the moment the design looks like a prop for a science fiction movie, however they are looking into implementing the technology on designer glasses. The idea of the Google Glass is to wear it like a Smartphone. Some 10000 people are testing the early version at the moment. So I think ideally those glasses are being made for anyone and everyone.

X-Men: Days of Future Past. Eyewear from the movie – Can you ID them?

Not only am I excited for the the next Transformers movie, but I’m also massively looking forward to seeing the latest Marvel film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Even though I’m beginning to lose count of the amount of X-Men movies made, I’ll be staggered if this is not a worldwide hit with movie fans!

Viewing the trailer (see below) we have noticed a few of the characters wearing either glasses or sunglasses frames…

Nicholas Hoult / Hank / Beast

Nicholas continues his role as Hank & Beast, even with super human powers he still needs to wear prescription ey... read more
