Frankenstein's Monster (Feat. New glasses from Vision Direct)

wpid-pixlr.jpg This week has been full of big deals for my blog. The first was getting featured on PERSON'S blog as one of her favourite bloggers (You can read her magnificent blog here: )

The next big deal was being contacted by Vision Direct (  about doing a collaboration. (Technically I was contacted a few weeks ago, but the post is going up today so W/E! )


Basically Vision Direct sent me the glasses I wore today, and boy are they magnificent (the words my optometrist used were "princess glasses")  Choosing the frames was a wonderful ordeal. Not only is the website easy to navigate, they have so many fabulous options (It took me about 2 hours to narrow my choices down to this one) Looking at the choices in comparison to the place I normally buy my glasses, they were all very well priced.


The pair I chose were these ones made by Swarovski (It's at this moment I'd like to say how glad this is a blog and not a youtube channel, as I still can't say this word correctly) These things are so so so beautiful. They were also perfect fit out of the box, and the arms on the frames are incredible sturdy. The plastic they used is crystal clear and very high quality.

I actually received the glasses about a week ago, but had to go get my prescription put in the frames (as I was only sent the frames, and I can't see without my prescription) FEAR NOT! If you're blind like me, you can get them sent out with prescription lenses!


Lets talk about what I'm wearing. I bought this cropped jumper from my favourite Vinnies (Woy Woy Vinnies is where it's at) It's hella cute, but incredibly hard to style. This week I finally worked out how to style it (Pro tip: Tartan goes with EVERYTHING). I love the asymmetrical sleeves with zig zag stitch detailing. (Makes me feel like an adorable Frankenstein's monster.)

Before I shot the photo's for this post, I shot some "Just in Case" photos (Just in case my frames didn't get back from the optometrists in time for the post to go up) So here are my bonus just in case photos!
