Keeping it cool & staying savvy – Ordering glasses online

Keeping it cool & staying savvy – Ordering glasses online

If there is one thing I am pretty obsessed with when it comes to Summer, and any time of the year for that matter, it’s sunglasses. I seem to have them scattered all over the house and go through so many pairs. It may have something to do with me constantly putting them on my head – they tend to get a little stretched over time. I’d never considered ordering glasses online before, until recently. Have you any idea just how many different styles are out there?

More recently I have been wearing aviators. I love the classic style of them and the simplicity. I love how they will always go with any type of outfit and they never look too much.

This Summer though I fancied trying something different and so I went back to my roots. When my obsession with sunglasses first began, I loved bigger frames. The bigger the better. Perhaps I was channelling my inner celebrity, who knows?! Either way, if there was a big frame on offer, I was normally straight on it!

These Amanda Cat Eye Black Sunglasses from GlassesShop.com had my name written all over them. I fell for them instantly, and they have so much more class than any larger frame sunglasses I have ever had. They were a great pick considering I got the glasses online and didn’t get to physically try them on.

I was so impressed that I am considering looking here for my next set of prescription glasses. I can tell the time is coming for me to get my eyes tested again, and the prices are so reasonable, I really would be silly not to.

The selection of glasses frames that are available have really got me thinking outside the box for my next pair. I really fancy something different from my current black frame and with so many styles on offer the world is my oyster.

GlassesShop.com are offering my readers a whopping 50% off any orders from their online store (sale frames excluded). Just useΒ GSHOT50 on checkout.

Now all we need is a bit more sunshine than what we’ve been having recently so I can really give these lovely new sunglasses a good run out. I heard a whisper of a possible Indian Summer this Autumn! Perhaps we may just get a few more rays of sunshine after all. Failing that, there is always Portugal to look forward to in October.

Do you love sunglasses as much as me? What is your favourite style?

    Fab review. Those sunglasses are amazing. I want some! haha. That reminds me, I didn’t buy any new ones yet this summer. Though saying that, we haven’t had much of a summer yet have we.. I have never thought about ordering sunglasses online before now. #TriumphantTales

      Well, maybe that Indian Summer will come after all… the bank holiday weather surprised us after all!

    Wow! They look amazing. It’s worth trying something different! Fingers crossed for the Indian Summer! πŸ™‚ #Triumphanttales For the giveaway the Sylvanian families set would be my favourite!

      All hail the oversized glasses!

    I love the ‘idea’ of sunglasses but my head just doesn’t seem to suit a lot of different styles. I finally managed to get a decent pair for my honeymoon 6 years ago and they’re still with me now! #TriumphantTales

      My hubby is exactly the same! Thankfully he did manage to find a pair and like you, he has stuck with them ever since! Just don’t lose them! πŸ™‚

    I love sun glasses but I’m so picky with how they look and so would be so nervous to buy online.

    Love these, they really suit you! I’m a tad obsessed with buying sunglasses, pretty much all year round! They make me feel more comfortable, even if they’re just on my head. Haha

    These look fab! I’ve been converted to buying my prescription glasses online for a while but have never thought about getting sunglasses too, I’ll take a look at their site πŸ™‚ #TriumphantTales

      I suppose we buy everything else online don’t we?!

  12. 30th August 2017 / 1:08 pm

    Love the look. I don’t suit glasses so that would put me off buying online. I would need to find a pair I like then maybe search online for that exactly pair. #TriumphantTales

    They look lovely. I have to wear my glasses all the time, so I just got reactor lenses put in them. No sexy shades for me lol x

      Aw, at least glasses are far trendier than they ever used to be these days!

  15. 30th August 2017 / 7:44 pm

    Watch out there is a cool mummy in town, teehee! It looks like a pleasant experience of ordering, it would be something I would a bit scared of. X #triumphanttales

    I’m not much of a sunglasses wearer (I just look weird) and I’ve officially lost my only pair – good timing for the discount! πŸ™‚

      Ah I’m sure you don’t look weird, perhaps you just haven’t found the right pair yet? πŸ™‚

    when i buy new sunglasses i go for something different to my last pair, so i like to try on different styles in store. i would however be prepared to order online prescription glasses as i’m not so fussed about the style and tend to stick to the same ones #triumphanttales

    Buying new sunglasses is one of those things that always fills me with dread as there are so many styles to choose from. I have made some really bad choices in my time, normally when I am in an airport and am time pressured. The only pair of glasses I have bought online was 5 years ago and they are still the ones that everyone comments on and they were so much cheaper too. I will definitely be checking this out. Great review and nice shades too. Sorry to be late commenting – life took over last week. #TriumphantTales
