OPSM Eye Hub

Up until recently, you would not know that I wore glasses, unless you know me personally, that is! I have never taken any pics of me wearing my glasses and published them on here. I have been so bored with my old pair of Booth & Bruce (London) glasses that I was in desperate need of a change. And so the story goes...

When I first commenced holidays, I had compiled a list of errands to run and appointments to schedule. One of my priorities was to organise to see an optometrist and purchase a new pair of eyeglasses. I had heard so many wonderful things about the OPSM Eye Hub that I had to check this fabulous new concept store out for myself. Was I disappointed? Read on to find out! 

The OPSM Eye Hub is located in Hawthorn. On entry, I was greeted by their friendly concierge. I couldn't believe my eyes with the number of designer brands they stocked! I was literally speechless and that doesn't happen to me very often. 

Stocking over 2000 frames, there is a style to suit everyone's taste and budget. While I was waiting to see the optometrist, my personal stylist started by collecting all of the pairs I liked. She put them aside for me until after my appointment. I thought this was a brilliant idea as it took the stress out of having to try them on after having had an eye test.








My optometrist, Spiros, was knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and professional. He answered any questions I had with confidence and ease. I often feel a little anxious when having an eye test as the eyes are quite delicate in nature. However, the eye test was a breeze, so I would highly recommend you booking into see Spiros. Tell him I sent you! 

Out of the several pairs of eyeglasses I had initially chosen, I narrowed it down to two pairs, Prada and Burberry. Could I choose? Well, no, so I ended up buying both!! Plus OPSM gave me a further discount for buying two pairs, which was an added bonus. 















I love both pairs for different reasons. They are both quite different and as a result, give me different looks. The Burberry pair is a very neutral colour, which I was wanting. It doesn't really feel/look like I am wearing any glasses. The Prada pair make quite a style statement with their shape and tortoiseshell colour.

So what do you say about my new eyeglasses? Which ones do you like the best, or like me, are you finding it hard to choose?

What are your plans for the weekend? I'm really looking forward to getting my hair styled tomorrow with a colour, cut and blowwave. I always feel fabulous afterwards.


Yours in style,
