They absolutely loved my write up and sent me an email afterwards telling me they were getting a new range of glasses in, ready for Christmas.
Of course I was over the moon at the chance to try another pair and so Lauretta introduced me to the marvellous “Zsa Zsa”
Available in a choice of four glitter colours, Gold, Silver, Purple and Red. I loved all the colours so how was I to pick my favourite?
That left me with Purple and Red. which were both stunning and I really wasn’t able to choose which I liked best.
Of course there was only one thing left to do…..
Toss a coin!
Well, who was the winner? The stunning scarlet pair was my choice and so I sent a reply back to Lauretta asking if I could try the red pair.
To be honest as these glasses are a new range in time for Christmas, red really was the most appropriate colour choice.
I then went off to France for a few days and on my return, I was excited to find a packet on my doorstep.
Once Inside I was delighted to see a gorgeous Chinese silk style case, with a little Gold bell and cream tassel. What a really unusual way to store glasses and also very beautiful.
Once I opened the bag, I was extremely pleased with the contents. The most sparkly pair of glasses I have ever seen.
The red glitter is a bright telephone box red. The glitter covers the whole of the front of the glasses and also a section on each arm approximately 1.3″ long.
The frame is a lightweight Silver coloured metal with black ear sections.
I was extremely excited to try them on. Now as I was still wearing my green Betty’s it was easy enough to swap them over.
And I was really glad I did as they looked FABULOUS!
Having a very vintage shape, I struggled to try and categorise the specific style as they do have a kind of cat’s eye feel, but without the pointed/curved outside edge. These are more of a rounded style yet still with a vintage vibe.
Initially when I received the glasses, I wanted to start sharing and posting on my social media, however Lauretta advised me that the glasses were not yet ready for their website so I needed to wait a couple of weeks before premiering them.
Of course as soon as I was given the all clear to start shouting from the rooftops, that is exactly what I did!
The glasses are a great quality and for a pair with plain glass, the super amazing price of £19.00 means they won’t break the bank. With standard prescription lenses in, they still come in around the £30 mark which is a steal compared to some of the high street opticians. If you have them with anti-scratch/anti-reflection they are only £41! I mean who could say no to those prices.
I am sure these glasses will be the talking point whenever I wear them and they will really make me sparkle this Christmas!
I am now already looking at purchasing my next pair. I am thing Marilyn in red…. Watch this space.
What do you think? Which pair should I have chosen?
Till next time,
