London Retro: Bailey Glasses Review

London Retro's AW13 collection 'New Metropolitan' celebrates London's iconic tube stops and lines with each pair in the collection being named after a stop or line. The collection combines modern shapes with this seasons trends seen on catwalks such as Mui Mui and Dior. There are 17 styles within the collection each priced at £79, I was given the opportunity to pick a pair of my choice to review. Whilst I don't wear glasses like many people I have wondered about the clear lense option and what I would actually look like with glasses so I took the opportunity and chose these Bailey frames

The frames come with a leather look hard case, and the frames themselves seem pretty sturdy. I love the whole vintage feel to the collection, and really liked some of the more retro looking ones (like these Babs frames) but I think an oversized frame suits my face shape much more! All frames comes with scratch resistant and anti-reflective lenses, which so far seems to work, as I accidentally left them on my bed after photographing them and found them in perfect condition underneath a bunch of clothes and coat hangers (eek). There's plenty of information on the website about the sizing of the fames if you're worried about ordering online - plus it's free delivery for UK shipping. 

What do you guys think?
Do any of you wear glasses even though you don't need them?

  2. I need glasses but don't wear them often enough, frames like this would tempt me!

  3. You look so good in those frames, they suit you a lot. I used to wear glasses but got laser eye surgery and to be honest I'm glad I don't have to wear them anymore! I think I'd see glasses differently if I didn't have to use them to see at one point!

  4. These are gorge!
    Love these on you!

  6. These are so chic, & look great on you. I need to get around to going to the eye doctor, & I may pick up a pair like these!

  7. Glasses suit you! This pair looks so good with the dark lippy. I've got a pair that are a similar shape to this in dark, dark blue. I like having the option to switch between them and my contacts!
