I'm a prolific contact lens wearer. To the point that my eyes sob, actual tears, when I peel them out of my eyes. Gross huh? So I decided that in 2012 I was going to look after my eyes a bit more – you know, because I kind of like being able to see. The day I got my contacts changed my life – I felt pretty for the first time since I was about 7 (that's when I got my first pair of glasses) and as a result rejected glasses for a really long time.
But thanks to a perfectly timed offer from Refinery 29 Reserve and Lookmatic I was able to grab two new pairs of prescription glasses. Woo. I was really impressed by the service, they arrived faster than my contacts (which are pre made) and despite being enormously blind (-7 y'all!) the lenses are really slim – and these were just the standard thickness.They're also rather cool non? (though Mr Style says I look like Harry Potter in the first pair!)
Anyway – I'm sure now that I have trendy glasses, that I can actually see out of, I'll be wearing them a lot more!
In the first pic I am wearing Andy in Tortoise and the second pic Apprentice in wood. You can buy them at Lookmatic for $88 a piece.
