Outfit: hello hipster

Let's talk about glasses. I looooove sunglasses, but as someone with pretty good eyesight, I've never really seen the point in wearing fake 'geek' glasses. I mean, surely, it's just a bit weird and show-offy?

Well. I'm going to hold my hands up and say that I've turned into a bit of a show off. I was offered a pair of designer glasses to review for this blog, and after a quick poll of my workpals ("Will I look ridiculous? Should I say yes? Am I turning into a mega hipster?") I said YES PLEASE, and picked an amazing pair of Ray-Ban Glasses that really are a bit too good for me.

They arrived super quick (thanks!), and then sat on my desk for ages as I tried to work up the nerve to wear them. Typing this seems super daft - they are just glasses after all! - but I think I realised the dark dangerous slope I was standing upon.

Because.. well. Look at them.


They are SO MUCH FUN. In about three minutes I went from - oh god, I don't think glasses suit me, I feel like a Clark Kent wannabe, to someone who was posing and instagramming like they've never done before.

I figured I'd embrace a purposefully hipster-esque outfit to match them, so I paired them up with this...

Women's Glasses - Ray-Ban Wayfarer Glasses
T-shirt - American Apparel
Shorts - New Look
Necklace - Accessorize
Scrabble Ring - Etsy
Unbrushed hair - Oops

Okay, maybe it's not the hippest outfit, but it was a SUPER hot day and this looked cute (I promise it did. One of these days I'll learn how to not pose awkwardly).

I wore them out to town (for an afternoon of reading in the park, gin in the sunshine, and Sunday night noodles), and didn't want to take them off. I love them, and if that makes me a show off, then bring it on - I have super cool glasses!

Disclaimer:  MyOptique sent me a pair of glasses to review. Thanks guys! 


  1. Great post I have geek glasses too but I don't wear them often enough I think I might have to pair them with an outfit like this I really want to wear them more xx

  2. they look as cute as a button on you! Love!
    I don't wear my own glasses enough. I'm kind of shy about them!

  3. ooOOh hello! You look bloody gorgeous in those specs. I don't wear glasses but I like a good bit of face furniture.

  4. Ahh I love these! They look really good.

  5. You are so adorable!!!! I love you in hipster mode.

  7. Awesomesauce. I think you should spend a whole day at work in hipster mode. x

  8. Those glasses look amazing on you! Love it!

  9. Love these! I've been thinking about upgrading my current glasses to Ray Bans, although there is nothing wrong with the glasses I have they're just not as fancy. I've jsut come across your blog, it's great! Weirdly, I use 'eversokirsty' as mu username for various things, but that's because of an Early November song...anyways, I digress!
