Eyewear Inspiration

Eyewear inspiration

I’ve mentioned in the previous post that my eye sight definitely needs some improvement. I started wearing prescription glasses in my high-school days, and if back then I thought it was the coolest thing, currently not so much. These days I have the hardest time finding the right pair of specs, so much that I often postpone this task, like year after year. I’m too self-conscious when it comes to glasses, and when bombarded with too many options, I get overwhelmed and just feel like running away.

I do have one pair of glasses though, which I keep secretly stashed somewhere around the house. See, I had the genius idea of ordering them online and didn’t bother to return them after realising they weren’t THE ones.

This time around I really want to find a perfect-fitting pair of glasses. I’m in dire need of eyewear inspiration so I figured it would help if I narrowed down some looks before hitting the shops. I’m into a wayfarer or a slight cat eye look, so that’s something to start with. I tried the Alain Mikli ones the other day and, even though they have a slightly bold look, I think they looked rather nice.

Peer pressure might be just what I need, so which ones would you recommend?

  1. I have the same dilemma, which I similarly avoided for years (contact lenses!) finally I went to a great shop in Berlin where the brilliant store assistant assessed my face and immediately told me that what I had in mind was 100% WRONG for my oval head and suggested something much bolder than I had thought of and low and behold, I looked in the mirror and loooooved it. I actually think I look better with glasses than without now, which I would never have imagined a year ago. All I can say is: take the plunge, sister!!

    PS. I like the stella mccartney and miu miu ones best, but it all depends on your face and how they fit :)) Good luck!!

    1. Oooh thanks for the tip Zanna! That’s an awesome idea, I should do an assessment as well. I really like the Miu Miu ones but with a narrow face like mine, I think they will look huge. Need to try them out in a store 🙂 x

  2. Oooo the Stella McCartney ones are lovely. Posts like these make me actually want glasses but I’m pretty lucky considering I don’t need ’em… yet!

  3. I’ve always wanted glasses, but now I know that they would definitely be in the way and get annoying if I HAD to wear them. Maybe I’ll start just wearing them with regular glass? These are all gorgeous!
