I’m a glasses wearer and proud. Yes, you will see me in contacts from time to time and at more formal occasions, but generally I treat my glasses as a part of my wardrobe – they’re just another fabulous accessory!
I love my glasses and I love how they’ve really come to the forefront of fashion in the past few years. Yes, people may take the micky out of the ‘geek chic’ specs, but surely it’s better that they have become a fashion trend, than there be the situation that I can remember from my teens where people would feel uncomfortable in glasses, and worried that they could never be truly stylish with them. Who would have thought that now you would be able to get specs with non-prescription lenses in fashion stores just a few years later?
But if glasses are the new in accessory, let’s face it, they’re an expensive one. It would be fab to be able to change your specs with your mood and outfit, but most of us only have one or two pairs. So, how about if I told you that you could have the chance to win a year’s supply of lovely new glasses and sunglasses?
Yup, in celebration of specs wearers everywhere, I’m happy to share that Glasses Direct have asked me to help them find the face of their brand new brand Scout.
They are looking for someone who loves fooling around with fashion and creating their own look. They’re not looking for the next top model, but someone who can truly represent the brand which boasts an eclectic mix of bold and on-trend frames that need an equally individual face to wear them.
To enter, all you have to do is email email@example.com by the 9th June 2012, with a picture of you rocking one of your favourite outfits with a little bit about how you’d describe your style. You could get picked to debut in Scout’s debut eyewear collection campaign on the 12th June in London, all expenses paid, PLUS win a year’s supply of Scout frames with your prescription, UV or sunlenses. (How fab is that, a pair to match every outfit!)
