MyOptique have recently launched a new eye care range celebrating the iconic London Underground stations, each pair is named after one of the many stations. As a self-confessed London fanatic I'm in love with the range so when they asked me to pick a pair to try out, it was a very hard decision. Ranging from both small to large frames, the Metropolitan range is full of beautiful retro-inspired glasses suitable to tickle anyones fancy. It was a toss up between the Eliza or the Piccadilly frames. As I already have a pair of larger frames I opted for the vintage inspired cat eye glasses to help me channel my 50s siren! The black makes them look classy and sophisticated because lets face it I need all the help I can get in that department! Priced at just £79 for the frames, they really are a bargain. The frames feel such good quality - I don't have to worry about them blowing off my face in the wind!

What is your favourite style of frame?
