'NANCY' London Retro

london retro glasses review

Feeling Spectacular….

I'd like to think that a good part of my image is centred around my love of eye-catching frames (see what i did there!). And although i'm not always wearing them in my blog posts, on a daily basis you'll be sure to see my sleepy face framed by one colourful pair or another (i practically have an eye-wardrobe at this point), so for me it's important to keep things fresh considering i wear my glasses so often, especially if i'm working in studio. My latest acquisitions are the 'Nancy' Glasses* by London Retro, an eyewear brand i can truly put my heart on my sleeve and say i really, really love, the styles are, well retro inspired and it fits in perfectly with my aesthetic, vintage looking, slightly kitschy, and maybe a little colourful. I've actually previously blogged about two of their other frames, the infamous Fitzrovia glasses, and the classic Malcolm glasses, inspired by the man himself.

I chose these frames because they're a little thicker than my fail safe Fitzrovia's, and i loved the multicoloured flecks that run through the frames, tres stylish, and it means it matches more or less every single outfit i could ever have planned for it. Also a cute boy complimented me on my glasses the first day i wore them, so there's that!

Can you tell how much fun i had taking these photos? Turns out using a remote, tripod and self timer on my balcony worked out pretty well, which means i can take more photos myself, which in turn means more posts, hooray! (Sidenote: I almost fell off the ledge, trying to take artsy pinteresty style photos haha! The things you do for photos..) That aside over, if you feel like trying before buying, Glasses Direct do a Free Home Trial. So my fellow eyesight impaired friends, what say you? Glasses or Contact lenses? I'm personally a glasses girl through and through because i'm awfully squeamish, and i feel like glasses balance out my face more!

  12. HI! I LOVEE YOU SO MUCH! your'e such a creative person and I genuinely enjoy your'e sense of style and the way you write. lol just wanted to tell you that tee-hee I'm a big fan! I'm 17 and I'll be graduating in 2016. I'm hoping to go into Architecture too, like environmental and design for sustainability. I was wondering if you could sorta do a post on college life as an Architecture major and why you wanted to do it and stuff. I love you. Oh, and I started blogging too.

    I could not tell this was all tripod work! Love the new glasses - I really should replace the ones I have from when I was 14 with a pair from London Retro!
