SpecsPost REVIEW

In late-2013 I was offered a fabulous opportunity at trying out glasses courtesy of online retailer SpecsPost. I'm loving the current trend of using fashion glasses as accessories with outfits. It's no longer just jewellery that is the norm, but donning scarves, hats, hair accessories and now glasses that are becoming standard when selecting accessories for an outfit!

I chose to try out the following three pairs of SpecsPost glasses. All three were supplied with normal no prescription glasses. If you require prescription lenses, just easily select the option on the SpecsPost website when ordering, along with your prescription details. Note that prescription lenses can only be supplied between the powers of less than +/- 6 sphere and +/- 2 cylinder. 


These are in a beautiful soft gray, and are quite sheer so you see some of the metal work inside the arms. They look very sophisticated so they would be great in a working environment, and the colour looked great on my fair skin. 

Black & pink retro glasses

I would describe these as 50's cat-eye glasses, and they looked fabulous teamed with my 50's style tea dress. I would wear these on special occasions with various vintage-style dresses.


These have cherry red metal frames, with stunning black flower and butterfly silhouette detail on the arms. These would look amazing for a cute day-time look. Out of the three I tested, these are my favourite pair: they reflect my style, compliment my wardrobe, the details are gorgeous and, importantly, they suit me! 

Reassuringly, all three pairs of glasses arrived safe & secure in individual hard plastic cases, in a padded envelope, which had to be signed for on delivery.

The choice of glasses on their website is fantastic, with an amazing variety of styles and shapes, and all at great prices. Because they are online, they have lower operating costs compared to a high street optician, and SpecsPost pass these savings on to their customers.

I wore glasses from the age of 16, until I braved laser eye surgery in April 2007 for my wedding, so I knew roughly what shape and size frames suited by round face. But with SpecsPost Home Trial Service, everyone can try before they buy!
