For as long as I’ve worn glasses – I handily got mine aged 15, when you’re Really Quite Conscious of your looks – I’ve battled with a handful of style conundrums. You know, things like, ’do I take them off for dance class and risk being unable to see but preserve the frames? Should I wear them outside of lessons because OMG no boy will speak to me?* Bloody hell, why are 3D films now a thing?’ The most annoying of all each summer is the toss-up between the gift of sight or the gift of no squinting. Right? In recent years though, I’ve been trialling the wonderful gift of prescription sunglasses going from literally having your normal frames remade with prescription lenses, to…
These beautiful bad boys.
Enter my new miu miu MU54RS sunglasses. It’s incredulous even to me that this is my first pair of designer sunglasses that I can see in. I can see. It’s a Christmas miracle. Hand on heart-eyed sunglasses, I’ve spent many moons looking for my dream sunglasses with prescription lenses and these are those.
I found them on Smartbuyglasses who coincidentally got in touch with me a week later to collaborate and I’m just smitten. From picking out my perfect frames to getting a prescription service online, their end-to-end quality has been amazing. I can SEE, guys. The process is oh so simple, just make sure you have your most recent prescription details to hand and the rest is pretty simple. Whilst not every pair is available with prescription lenses, I’ve found that Smartbuyglasses offer one of the largest ranges out there and I already can’t wait to pick up my next pair. Hurry up, payday.
* Note: ALWAYS wear them when you need them because that pole didn’t appreciate being walked into anymore than you enjoyed the week-long bruises.
