Not too long ago I reached out to the Pin Up's of Instagram to ask where on earth do you all get prescription lenses put in your vintage frames!
Well I had loads of responses, thank you all so much but one fabulous company really stood out and offered to help that company is Dundee's one and only Spex Pistols! Great name right? and even better customer service I truly can't fault them.
Carefully opening it inside were three little separately wrapped pair of glasses.
Of course I couldn't wait to try them all on with my prescription finally in each pair.
Each pair of glasses had a Spex Pistols cardboard sleeve covering a plastic seal lock case that had another foil seal this time in silver. The glasses were then mounted on a brown cardboard plaque which all together looked ace.
Every single pair were perfection and they couldn't have been more friendly and amazing to deal with the whole way through.
My favorite pair in action last weekend worn with the new Collective mint green Caterina swing dress you can find HERE
The other two pairs sadly as I found out were cheaper imitations of vintage glasses but like the genuine vintage pair I hadn't paid too much for them.
It's not just the added touches of the foil embossed stamps, the stamped box or the little cardboard bits and bobs its the quality that goes in to each and every order.
I couldn't believe how amazing my glasses looked, they fixed the screws, they buffed them I couldn't be more over joyed! I finally have glasses I enjoy wearing and not some cheap 'they'll do' ones from Specsavers because at the time I desperately needed a pair.
Spex Pistols are incredible and if you haven't already get over to the site, pick a new (well old) pair of glasses or get sending yours! I highly recommend it!
