Esprit Sunglasses from Perfect Glasses

I have a confession to make, I never used to like, or wear sunglasses. I had this idea that I would never find a pair that would suit me, and trying lots of pairs on in various shops seemed to confirm this for me. I instead opted to wear sunhats when I was on holiday, and then just squint in the sun at all other times.

But that was then. Now I am a bit of an addict when it comes to sunnies, it all started with a pair of oversized Michael Kors which I totally fell in love with, and now I have rather a large collection, you could say an addiction, especially when it comes to designer glasses. My most recent addition to the collection has been a pair of Esprit frames that have a very chic, almost retro feel to them.

I got the Esprit frames from Perfect Glasses. Perfect Glasses sells glasses online, these range from prescription sunglasses and regular glasses, to glasses for both men and women. Their range is, quite frankly, huge, and has lots of designer names to tempt, from Benetton and Police, to Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo. The styles are varied, and include designs that will suit all face shapes and skin types, and you can have both prescription lenses or regular glass/sunglass lenses, allowing everyone to enjoy the fashionable shapes.

Perfect Glasses have got it just right when it comes to ordering and receiving your glasses. Ordering is simple, you just need your prescription, with most glasses coming in single vision, bifocal and multifocals. The website gives all the information about the frame size including nose bridge and frame width, so you can decide if they will fit and suit your face. Despatch can be within 48 hours for simple prescriptions, so you should be able to get your glasses fairly quickly – useful if you have broken your current pair. I also like the fact that you can order online, but if you have further questions or want to take to someone about the frames, there is a phone number where you just need to quote the reference number of the frame.

The glasses are delivered very well protected, my pair come in a glasses case that was then bubble wrapped and double packaged, ensuring that no accident would befall them on route. All glasses also come with a microfibre cloth for cleaning, another useful addition to keep your glasses clean and safe.

My Esprit shades (design Et17823 C565) are just lovely. They have an Ivory embossed frame and a slightly 1950s style shape. The Arms have Esprit at the top – not ostentatious labeling, but instead a stylish touch. They are light and comfortable to wear and have a pretty, girly feel to them.

It has been rather cold lately, but the sun still shines even when the temperatures have dropped, and I find I often wear my glasses when out in the car or watching the football. These glasses look great worn casually, or with a more dressy look. They are beautifully made and of great quality.

With a code that allows you to get many pairs of glasses at half price, you are getting both great style and value with Perfect Glasses. If you are looking for new glasses of any kind, then Perfect Glasses is well worth a look.

 

Preparing for the Chill with Esprit

January. I have to be honest, it’s my least favourite month of the year. The one that replaces the Christmas glow, glitter and glamour with dark, cold weather and a decidedly chilly air. This month is proving to be the norm rather than the exception. By the end of the week we could be looking at sleet and snow across most of the UK, and those sparkly days of December seem an awful long way away. It’s time to dig out those Winter Woollies.

The thing about dressing when the weather turns bad is that style often goes out of the window. It’s all about those chunky layers, puffa style coats, Wellington boots, and basically dressing like Scott of Antarctica getting ready to leave the tent. But it doesn’t have to be like that. We can maintain our style whilst keeping warm and snug, and the current collection from Esprit certainly proves that.

Esprit have been applying a few of their own rules to Winter dressing that ensure that your look could take you just about anywhere in style. If you follow these rules, you can be sure of a look that is both sartorially acceptable and warm. Totally win/win.

  1. If you have to wear a cardigan, take your tips from Chanel.

Chanel showed that wrapping up and adding layers could be the height of elegance. Esprit have added Chanel style cardigans and jackets to their collection, so all you need to do is add a string of pearls for your own iconic look.

2. If you are wearing a jumper, take your tips from Jane Birkin

A jumper and skinny jeans is a no brainer, but you can gain extra style points by taking your tips from Jane Birken and her love of Breton Style (think also Alexa Chung and Kate Moss). A stripe is a classic and also works well with a denim skirt or Matelot style with wide legged trousers.

When the weather is cold, you may reach for a scarf or a hat. Why not make these the perfect way to add some sparkle to your look?

Boho Dressing with Esprit

One of my favourite brands this summer has been Esprit. I have added quite a few pieces from the brand to my Summer Wardrobe, just loving the quality of the clothes and the fact that they offer something that is a little different from the majority of High Street stores. On a less happy note, I also managed to lose my favourite Esprit cardigan during a day in the park. The weather got warm, so I took my cardigan off and put it across my bag. At some point it must have slipped onto the floor and I didn’t notice until it was much to late. Despite retracing my steps, the cardi was long gone and I was more than a little gutted.

My current Esprit obsession is in the form of boho style dresses. Esprit has a great selection of these and I think they are the perfect midsummer buy, especially when the summer itself has turned out to be just a little bit of a disappointment. For boho, I am not necessarily talking of gypsy style necklines or acres of white cotton, instead I am looking at ethnic and paisley printed dresses, often with three quarter sleeves, and coming in all lengths, from short and flirty, to the cover all sins maxi length.

These are dresses that will be a really useful addition to your wardrobe. You can wear them now with sandals or wedges and they will look totally summer appropriate – in fact they make a great outfit for the airport as they are cool and comfortable. As we hit the Autumn they will look equally good teamed with a leather biker or denim jacket and a pair of ankle boots, and you can even take them into winter by adding a pair of opaque tights. If you believe in making your wardrobe earn its keep, these dresses will do that, and then some.

Another alternative that I have heard about that have bohemian dresses for sale are Top Tier Style. They offer a range of summer style designs that are great for that airy and gypsy look.

Boho dresses…not just for summer!
