A while back you may remember me blogging about an eyewear company called CrossEyes. Well a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the grand opening of their newest store in Camden and it’s safe to say I certainly was not disappointed.
As someone who struggles with eyesight, I’ve supported CrossEyes from the beginning and their concept is rather admirable. The prices are set so what you see is what you get and you won’t be sold add ons or additional costs which, as a student, is a major thing for me. All the designs are unique and they change around every month or so, so there’s always something new and interesting. What I find great about this company is their honesty and independence. The staff are incredibly helpful and know their stuff and everything is made in house, even the furniture you see in the stores.
You’ll be sure to find a style to suit you. From quirky wooden frames to the brand new Nordic Collection which features some of the lightest frames you’ll ever try on, there will be something that reflects your style and personality. There will only be one of each frame in each of the stores, so it’s pretty much guaranteed that you won’t rock up to a house party and see someone with the same glasses as you. I also love the fact that all the frames are displayed on individual shelves rather than having about 50 pairs of glasses in one row. You are able to see them so much clearer, which makes the overall shopping experience a rather pleasurable one.
I’ve got my appointment tomorrow and after five years of wearing contact lenses every day for almost 12 hours per day, I’m very excited to start wearing glasses again. I know I’m going to be well looked after at CrossEyes and I think my eyes deserve some pretty cool specs to guide them through life!
