I’m really excited to share with y’all this two part series in partnership with Saint Charles Vision. This week we are picking out frames but in case you missed last week’s post where I take everyone through the eye exam check it out by clicking here first.
Phew! That wasn’t so bad was it? Now that I got the eye exam out of the way here comes the fun part, picking out new glasses! Selecting the perfect frames is important since your glasses aren’t just vessels of 20/20 vision, they become a part of your look. Your eye wear is the one accessory you’ll wear day after day so take care in figuring out what you want your frames to say about you. Are you a traditionalist? Looking for something trendy? Avante Garde? Want to downplay the shape of your nose or highlight your baby blue eyes? Saint Charles Vision makes finding new frames a breeze with The Optrics system.
Optrics is a personalized fit consultation developed in house by the Saint Charles Vision team. They take into account your lifestyle, skin tone, hair color, and face shape to help you find the perfect pair for your peepers.
Just one little trick that I learned is a back color, or the underside of the glasses, can really bring out the color of your eyes. Now lets play with a few styles!
Oooh those are unfortunate choices right? The wrong shade or frames that are too big for your noggin can be really distracting.
The olive Paul Smiths help balance my skin tone.
While these red Oliver Peoples help soften lines and help achieve a more feminine look.
