Glasses. One of my favourite boutiques in Yaletown is Blink Optometry. Yes it’s an optical place but I’ve never hidden the fact that I love glasses and this definitely isn’t limited to sunnies. I’ve been wearing glasses for a very long time now, since kindergarten in fact, and lately I’ve been toying with the idea of having laser eye surgery but every time I go to Blink I change my mind. With all the fun frames out there I think I’d really miss the option of wearing my glasses!
Blink is packed with frames, there really is something for everyone! With so many fun colours and frame shapes you can’t go wrong. Can’t justify it at the moment but I’m always tempted to have several different pairs. They are such a great accessory.
Now how much fun is this pair? The are completely clear but such a classic shape that I’m assuming they would look great on most faces.
How fabulous are these?! What you see there is real lace!!!! Yup you read that right, there is real black lace in these frames. Tempting, very tempting.
I really like these, turquoise and brown, what’s not to love. They are very modern but with a hint of a retro vibe.The great part is that they carry frames from all over the world. I remember being in there once and one of the Optometrists had just been to NYC for a convention, she brought back all these amazing frames. I had so much fun trying them all on.
These are the glasses that I currently own. I wanted them for a long time and finally got them and I love them. Ha! Point made. Here’s the interesting bit I wanted to share. Apparently the bridge of my nose is quite narrow (who knew) so when I first tried them on they slid right down and I couldn’t see a thing. Devastated. Luckily the staff is super helpful and had a great solution for me. I was given these silicone pads that go on the nose piece. They are invisible when on and last for months and months. Best of all they don’t leave groves on the side of my nose. Happy Girl!
