Why i'm a little in love with Bailey Nelson

As a kid I remember my mum wearing these massive classic 80's style glasses and always think gosh I wish my eyesight was shit so I could be like her?! Fast forward twenty years and my eyesight wasn't as bad as my mum's but I have the snazziest pair of glasses thanks to Bailey  Nelson. I've only ever really been able to afford the cheap pairs from other options nothing near as on trend and as stylish as the ones from Bailey  Nelson.

I'm always pretty nervous if I have to go to any appointment but as soon as I arrived at the spitalfields shop it felt really trendy and welcoming, the optician came out ( possibly the most stylish opticians I had ever seen) and was really calming and chatty. It turns out my eyes weren't as bad as I thought but my stigma was still there and I need them for drawing and reading. I opted for the Markova style with Yellow tortoise shell and I am a little bit in love with them. These are the only glasses I don't feel self conscious in, they fit me perfectly and they pretty much go with every outfit.

The glasses themselves with the lens in were £98 and the eye test I believe was around £20 and if like me you hate phoning anywhere I booked online making my anxieties reduce by about a million percent, these glasses and the experience were value for money and the wide choice of stylish affordable frames is pretty good, I was able to collect my new glasses within days, and I was genuinely excited about wearing them, as soon as I jumped on the train home I popped them on and started reading.



  1. I love Bailey Nelson! Been meaning to get myself a pair of these for ages as I hate wearing my glasses but think I could feel comfortable with a pair of BNs... xx


  2. These glasses look absolutely amazing on you! I dream of going to Bailey Nelson for new lenses, one day I'll get there. There isn't one near me which sucks so it's on my bucket list haha!
