Buying Glasses Online

After losing my Chanel glasses on holiday this summer, I've been on the hunt to replace them with a more inexpensive pair that look the same and are still of good quality. were very kind to get in touch and answer my prayers by letting me choose a pair from their range of eyeglasses. I went for the Aquarius Rectangle style in Tortoise* which are actually quite a good dupe for my long-lost Chanel loves. The slightly oversized frames are really flattering and they're the perfect fit for my face. I think the colour of them is really nice too, as sometimes black can be a little harsh.

Buying glasses can off putting in person I find - most of my trips to the opticians have involved pushy sales people anyway, so for me getting eyeglasses online is super easy after doing it a few times now. Most sites, like have a large selection, and they often include all the measurements so you can compare them to a pair you already own. Many have an online simulator where you can upload your photo and 'try on' the glasses to see if they suit you. Buying online is often a lot cheaper too, unless you go for designer frames which will be more expensive anyway.

Your opticians will usually give you a copy of your prescription on request, and mine actually emailed it to me. What I tend to do is attach this to my order if there's a facility to do so, or email it over after placing an order. That way you can be certain that they have the correct details. The sign of a good online store is that they ask for your pupillary distance (PD) and give you details on how to find this out (you need to measure it yourself, your optician won't provide this). Essentially it's the distance from the middle of your nose to your pupil so the prescription is in the right place.

I love my new glasses so much - they really suit me I think. I'm also now a lot less sad about my Chanels! Its always a good idea to have a second pair, so if you're looking for some I'd definitely pick them up online. I'm actually thinking of grabbing some prescription sunglasses too as they have loads of cool styles to choose from.

If you'd like to pick up a pair for yourself, use the code GSHOT50 on for 50% off a pair of frames and lenses.
