Firstly let me start by saying that this is not a sponsored or review post. I simply had to share the complete fabulousness that is Direct Specs - the online store specialising in prescription glasses and sunglasses.
I'm short sighted, so I rely on glasses for driving, watching TV and seeing the numbers on buses. Yes its rubbish, so when I lost my one and only pair a few weeks ago (my second pair to lose in as many years) I was not a happy bunny. I had a few pairs of contact lenses left over, so I was OK for several days, but when they ran out I had to plan my days around whether or not I'd have to drive in the dark, which happens to be an absolute no, no when you don't have 20/20 vision.
Direct specs was recommended to me a few years back by a friend who had a really nice pair of glasses on and when she told me she'd only spent £35 when I'd spent a whopping ten times that on a pair of Armani prescription frames a few weeks earlier, I knew I'd be a fool not to get involved.
With the recent episode of yet another lost pair of glasses I was stumped. I couldn't find my old prescription and my two year check up was due, so I had to wait a few weeks to get my eyes tested before I could order myself a new pair. Frustrating....
I got my new prescription on Monday and late on Thursday I ordered my new specs online, it said they'd be delivered within ten days, but I received my glasses on Saturday morning. Very impressive.They were £19.99, with £5 for an anti scratch lense and £4.50 postage and packaging. Not to mention a free case. Bargain city or what? I am really pleased with my purchase.
I have used Direct Specs twice before, the first time I got a pair of Burberry prescription frames for £50 (which I lost) and my second purchase was a pair of non designer frames for £30 (that was the most recent pair I lost) hmm not quite sure what's going on with that. Anyway the quality is amazing, the service second to none, not to mention super quick and the price is unbelievable. I would recommend this company all day long.
Their range, especially the selection of designer frames seems to have dwindled a little over the years, but what they do have is still great. Here is a pic of me in my new specs. I love them. Mostly because of the price, but they look good too (even if I do say so myself).
