In the last two years, my kids have snapped the arms off two pairs of my glasses. My most recent pair of Burberry frames were the latest casualty and for the last month I have been wearing them with the broken arm stuck on with washi tape.
What with moving house and trying to get settled, I have just been going with the Washi tape look for now (I can swap it to match my outfit) but the novelty is wearing off.
Inspired by Kamini Pather, who recently Instagrammed herself in her gorgeous new Oliver Peoples, I have been searching for the right pair. OM actual goodness, it’s hard. The general rule is to go according to the shape of your face – round, square, oval or heart etc. But I don’t know what shape my face is. Should you go alone and make a decision based on your gut, or do you take friends or your partner and listen to their opinion? My instinct tells me you go alone and you take your time, research the styles that suit your face shape and get something that will still look on trend in 5 years. Here’s hoping I make the right choice. Heaven knows I’ve had enough practice, toddlers and reading glasses should never be left alone in the same room…
