So, I made an appointment with my eye doctor last week. I couldn't believe how fabulous some of the frames were that I could choose from in the optician's shop! It was actually FUN shopping for new glasses! I couldn't believe my eyes- pun intended! Haha!
But seriously, I fell in love with the designs of the company Fysh UK. (Pronounced like "fish," but spelled with a "y." Doesn't that automatically make them cooler?) Sure, there were plenty of well-known designers to choose from- Calvin Klein, Coach, Kenneth Cole, etc., but the Fysh designs were so unique and exciting, that I found myself truly looking forward to wearing glasses! Check out some of their designs:
Style 3309 (Doesn't this one remind you of Mondrian's artwork?)
In the end, it came down to two pair, both of which are pictured above. Can you guess which ones ended up being mine? Leave a comment- I'll be posting a picture as soon as they come in with my (super strong) prescription. I'm so blind.
Anyway, if you are in the market for a new pair of eye glasses, I strongly recommend you check out Fysh UK. You will have to find a retailer near you, since you can't exactly purchase prescription glasses online! If you live in New Hampshire and would like to know where I got mine, I'd be happy to recommend my eye doctor. He is amazing! And the optical shop in his practice has a nice selection of all sorts of glasses- not just Fysh, of course. Just email me for info.
Another thing I like about their line is that Fysh has style that are clearly masculine or feminine as well as several that could easily go either way. But even if Fysh isn't your style, visit their website because they have a guide that can help you select a style of frames that will work best for your face. Called "FYT YOUR FACE," that particular section of the website explains how to select the most flattering frames in terms of shape, size and color. Check it out!
