If you read my blog yesterday then you would know what I got up to today and you would definitely know if you been twitter stalking me (by the way if you want to twitter stalk me then follow me @MyGlassesAndMe). Today I was based in the Vision Express Ashford High Street store all day offering styling advice and most importantly to meet Elaine who was the MyGlassesAndMe competition winner for our second birthday.
It was lovely to meet Elaine and I think it is always nice to meet the winner and congratulate them in person. I gladly took on the challenge to find Elaine the perfect pair of glasses.
Right at the start I did make one epic error which was looking at the gents section however in my defence I thought they were unisex because quite a few brands do them (nevertheless- what an idiot). So once we are on track and looking at the correct section it was great fun!
Elaine had a small face which is narrow from the cheeks down so I feel staying away from round shapes was the way forward as it could make the top half of her face too heavy. The next step in my thought process was to pick an angular shape that suited her face shape and there were a lot to chose from so it sure was a hard task but a very enjoyable one.
In the end I have managed to pick Elaine a pair of Vera Wang frames. They were new to that store and Elaine was one of the first people to take a pair home! The Wang just suited Elaine’s features and the shape was cut beautifully which really complimented her.
Once the Wang was picked out I passed Elaine over to the Vision Express team who consulted her on what lenses to have because remember readers lenses are just as important. The frame are there to enhance the way you look but the lenses are the things that aid you to see and you can’t have one without the other so picking the right frame and the right lenses is important.
Tomorrow I will be putting couple more pictures up on some other lovely Ashford peeps who were at the Vision Express High Street store and were willing to be featured in the YourGlassesAndYou section. For now is good night because it is currently 11pm and I have been up since 6am- beauty sleep is calling…. Zzzzzzzz
