Okay, so we may already be 8 days in, but I hereby officially declare this #AskAnythingAugust! (I totally, shamelessly stole the idea from another blogger!) So, feel free to ask away - pitch me all your EYE RELATED questions! Go on, don't be shy... ☺️

I touched upon this briefly before, but I felt it deserved a blog all of it's very own, as it combines two of my favourite things: sunglasses and Star Trek.
The ever-fabulous Rihanna has collaborated with fashion behemoth Dior to create an exclusive range of future-fantastic sunglasses, and you'll never guess where her inspiration came from... only frickin' Star Trek!!
Chatting with Dior mag Rihanna says:
"DM: Can you tell us about your inspiration?
R: Believe it or not, La Forge from "Star Trek" back in the day! I've always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw the materials I could play with, it all just came together."
These little beauties are available in five metallic colours and in one luscious gold-plated version (sadly sold out I believe).
Since debuting the "La Forge", Rihanna has further confirmed her status as an out-and-proud Trekkie, by joining in Star Trek's 50th anniversary celebrations AND recording an exclusive track, Sledgehammer, for the soundtrack of new movie, Star Trek Beyond! (Which can I say is AWESOME! The track, and the movie!) She's a true "TrekkieGirl" ;)
And, is it just me or is Ri-Ri absolutely rockin' that Seven-of-Nine-esque silver lamay body suit?! HAWT!!!

I was going to term July the SarahKnowsEyes “fashion month”, as following my round trend blog, I have a couple of other posts up my sleeve that tie-in quite nicely. Admittedly I had intended to post these roughly one per week, but having just started a new job (woo-hoo!) things haven’t quite gone to plan! So I’m just going to try to post them all now… July has only JUST finished after all!
A couple of months ago I was trawling the Opticians of Camden with my friend, as I’d promised we’d find her the perfect pair of glasses. Having tried on every combination of round, square, oval, rectangular frames, we discovered that the more unusual “cat eye” was the perfect shape for her! She particularly fell in love with this pair at General Eyewear:
The retro/vintage vibe has been bubbling away under the surface for the past couple of years, with many loyal fans, and some absolute beauties have been coming through the practice. The cat eye is actually very “in” at the minute. Just the other day, this beautiful pair of frames was left with us to have new lenses put in…
A patient who is well known for her eclectic choice of frames recommended this quirky little wesbite to me - retropeepers.com. Here are a just a few of my favourite picks:
O.M.G. I am in LOVE! I want them ALL!Write comment (0 Comments)
