New Specs

 Outfit Deets:

* Gap cardigan (old).

* Joe Fresh blouse (old) and seen before with skinny  jeans.

* Dynamite skirt which I wore two years ago with turquoise silk and the same belt.

* Kelsi Dagger ‘Genelle’ wedges (new!) which I just picked up at Winners for half the price they are on the KD website (score!).  Am loving heels with lower heels lately (since I have enough of 4inch+) and these fit the bill perfectly.

* Accessories: Joe Fresh belt, Guess & F21 bangles

Some of you know I wear glasses,
and while my prescription isn’t very strong, it’s existent, just ask
the people at!  They kindly let me pick out a pair of eyeglasses which is so exciting because I’ve been wanting to buy glasses but didn’t want to fork out the cash (I know, I know).

I picked out a pair of plastic frame prescription glasses by Reece called the Jakob.  While I normally tend toward metal frames (here’s a post where I’m wearing my metal framed glasses) I have been itching for a pair of plastics and this was the perfect opportunity to find some.

The website offers a virtual mirror to try glasses on, but since I
didn’t have a Flash player I simply used the measurements from a pair of
glasses I already owned to determine what size would fit my face.

Now, I know this is a review, and I know I got a pair of free
glasses, but, I have to mention their customer service.  First know that they did not ask me to discuss this and they are all my own opinions.  I’m not one of those bloggers who is going to say wonderful things about a company I’m not happy with.  This is brutal honesty.

From day
one, they were very helpful and I was impressed with how quickly my
questions were answered via email.  When I finally placed my order (I
himmed-and-hawed for a good three weeks on which pair to purchase) they
sent me a tracking number within a day or so.  From there, my glasses
arrived within four days.  Four. Days.  Shocking, especially since it
seems they outsource their production to Europe and I’m in Canada.  The
glasses arrived in a small box with a case and a cleaning cloth, brand
spankin’ new.  I can honestly say I love them. would like to offer you lovely readers 10% off any purchase, simply use the code Blog10

And one from Instagram the day I received my new glasses…
