I normally only wear my glasses for watching tv and when I'm on the computer but, after going through the demoralising experience of walking up to stroke my cat last week, only to realise it was my brown rucksack, I've been forcing myself to wear them a bit more often. I keep promising myself that I'll actually wear them outside of my house - so that I can finally figure out if the person across the street is waving at me or not - but never really get round to it. However, the idea of wearing them outside has become more appealing as of late thanks to London Retro. This is my second pair of their specs and I really rate them - they're the only glasses I've ever owned that look appealing enough to venture outside in and are really well made (good for a Clumsy Claudia like me). As much as I love them, I think I'm still going to have to work towards reaching the stage where I could wear my glasses every day so, the moral of the story is, don't bother waving at me unless my mole-eyes are adorned with some specs. You can find the whole range of glasses, each of which are named after a different London tube line or station (mine is Bakerloo), here.
