I've been wearing prescription glasses for eight years now, and until this year I wasn't happy with my normal lenses. I bought some large round ones and I'm really happy with them. The only issue was that I didn't have any prescription sunglasses and I'll hopefully be learning to drive this year and was told that I needed a pair to ensure I was driving safely. When Specspost offered the chance to try on three pairs of sunglasses as a trial, send them back and then receive my own pair I was unbelievably excited. In fact, it made me look into how much driving lessons etc would cost because I was so made up at the idea of it. I chose three styles, the Farrah Cats Eye, the Clooney and the Kane Petite which as you can see, are all different.

The Farrah Cats Eye Sunglasses are £29.99 and the price includes standard lenses (single vision 1.5) or you can have them without a prescription in if you wanted. They're the largest frame out of the three I picked, with a brown tint and Tortoise shell effect on the frames. I didn't pick these lenses for one reason - the size. They're really nice on and go well with my blonde hair and don't get me wrong, I'm all up for big glasses, but another frame suited me better.
 The Clooney lenses were my favourite style overall as they were the perfect size, had a lovely pattern on and the style was more 'me'. These have grey/black lenses and fit like a glove. I think they're the most stylist out of the three and go with more things I own. They're not as full on as my fully rounded 'John Lennon' glasses that I own from New Look which means they'll suit a lot more people. I noticed that I preferred the colour of the lens more on these as I can see better with them on, an obvious advantage if I was driving with them on. These are £29.99 to buy.

The Kane Petite sunglasses were my favourites based on the photos on the website. The style is cute and quirky and they look more expensive than the others. I mean they are, but only by a penny. These are £30.00 and would look gorgeous on some, but the petite frame didn't suit my chubby-cheeked face. I did want to try a petite frame just in case as you can't always be sure online and I'm glad I did.

Overall I preferred the Clooney sunglasses and they've now been sent back to Specspost so they can kindly add in my prescription in and send them back! Then I'll have my own pair to take with me to LA in April which will 100% come in handy. I'm intrigued to see what they'll look like with my prescription as I've never had completely clear vision whilst wearing sunglasses. Specspost have been a friendly company to work with and quickly answered my questions over email which is always great when you're trying something out for the first time. They stock normal glasses too and you can add extras on to your lenses such as anti-glare coatings and bifocal and varifocal lenses which means there's something out there for everyone.
