Yo! Take a look around, get stuck in, and hopefully you'll leave feeling a little bit more empowered to ditch the trends and instead focus on doing you!

CAN YOU HELP ME PICK MY NEW PAIR OF GLASSES?

CAN YOU HELP ME PICK MY NEW PAIR OF GLASSES?

You might remember a few months ago I introduced you to KITE, a cool opticians / optical eyewear brand in London that are shaking things up in the industry. Well, if you couldn't get over to Stratford Westfield you can rejoice now, as they have introduced a pioneering new service - the home try. I sent off for a home trial of my own and I really need your help deciding which pair to pick!

With the home try you can pick four styles you like on their website and then get them sent to you to try at home before choosing your favourite pair. They arrive within 2 days of request, and they arrive in this slick little magnetised-clip cork box. See what I mean about being design gurus?!

They also offer free international shipping and returns.

Oh and the other thing I should mention is that all of their frames AND lenses are a flat rate of £150 or varifocals for £250. That's right, no more £450+ for cool glasses. These guys are in it for the people man!

Ok so here's what I requested to try on:

Grace in Pearl Havana

I really liked these! They have a bit of a retro vibe going on and felt really sturdy. I loved the kinda glam look they gave me. The only thing I wasn't sure about was that I dress so casual (read: tomboyish) all the time that I felt like they didn't go with all of my outfits. But maybe that was a good thing?

These have a really masculine grandpa vibe which is really cool and effortless. I really liked them but they felt a little too quiet for me, I wanted something loud and statement! However my current glasses are quite statement0y, so maybe I just needed something classic and timeless?

Otto were the pair that I instantly clicked with. They are quite similar to my other pair of glasses from Kite and go really well with my bright hair. They felt the easiest to fit with my random outfits. But were they too similar to what I had before? ARGH!

The Enzo's were my least fave. They're lovely - don't get me wrong, but I'm not too keen on rose gold and something about the shape felt a little wrong for my face. Not sure. But then they kinda grew on me?!

So basically the conclusion of all this is that I have no idea which pair to pick! I'd love if you could leave me a comment and let me know which you think look the wickedest.. maybe you can help me make my decision?!
