And does it work?
Of course it does. A new client popped back in to the practice the other day to tell the staff that her new frames had been much admired:
"Those glasses really suit you: they look fantastic. You won't have got those in Prudhoe!" a friend commented.
"Well, yes, I did!" was her answer.
Some Frame Tips from Elizabeth Evans and Her Team:
Look for frames that pick up your colouring - tones of your hair, eyes or skin.
As you get older shiny metals can be too harsh. A charcoal grey frame or muted silver frame may be better than bright silver.
Choose glasses that focus on your eyes if they are a best feature.
Frame designs are constantly being updated. You should think about changing every two years, at least. Watching celebrities can be useful. They are usually on the cusp of fashion. Watching what they are doing will give you ideas and help to prepare you for a shift in design yourself.
Choose eyewear that is synonomous with your profession. Wearing glasses projects a very clear message about who and what you are:
If you are in a conservative field you are best sticking to classic shapes and colours.
If you are in a creative field: be as creative as you like. Colour and shape as whacky as you want them to be.
If you are in a job that has close contact with people don't choose glasses that obscure you: you need to wear a frame that is open and non-threatening.
Why choose Elizabeth Evans? There is a lot at stake when choosing eye wear so choose someone you trust. A fast frame business is rarely going to have the same interest and expertise in fitting you.
