Check it out! MR HUGO himself, exposed and framed on the coaster under the wine glass in one of Sydneys best nightspots Hugos (Night club of the year, 3 years in a row). Cool. Clearly notified of my faschination, the barman sent me off with the full selection of them.
Get the look
Psst. Wanna look like Mr Hugo? Get this frame called Buck (21063633, in all Specsavers stores) and you'd be pretty close.

The actual way of storing my glasses has changed over the years; from using boxes and the “Billy” book shelve from my fellow country shop – IKEA – to a proper frame display I got from a friend and optometrist back home in Sweden. With a big wardrobe you never travel light and when I moved over to Melbourne some of my glasses (amongst all) had to be left behind. But – I’ve got all of my favourites with me.
Do it yourself!
Here, as you can see, I’ve used an old and beautiful picture frame bought in one of Melbourne’s Op-shops to build my new, Australian wardrobe. I took the back piece off, put hooks on the back side of the frame to tie the horizontal string where my frames are hanging. As a decorative background, I placed two colourful sheets of wrapping paper. Voila – the frames have been framed....! Easy Peasy!
Thanks Emma Vandenberg for making this fabulous art of me and my specs.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve enjoyed experimenting with clothes, jewellery and accessories. From remaking my mum’s wedding dress into a cocktail dress (!!) to revelling among the treasures in second hand shops and grandma’s massive wardrobe, I’ve always enjoyed the fun of expressing myself through different outfits. When I was in the sixth grade I got glasses. Unlike my friends in a similar situation, I was thrilled - yet another accessory to play with! So, my slight obsession for glasses was there way before I started working for Specsavers six years ago - but it did mean a great environment for a specs-o-holic like me. Over the years I’ve build an impressive specs-wardrobe containing favourites over time, trends that have come and gone as well as some real classics.
I see my glasses as an obvious part of my wardrobe and it’s really fabulous seeing so many inspiring people on the streets, making their specs their personal signature. Therefore I also love sharing with you, photos of all lovely specs-wearers I’ve managed to frame in the office, on the street, in the crowds...
Psst. Much welcome to send photos of yourself wearing your favourite pairs....

TWO PAIRS OF GLASSES IN TWO DAYS
Mr Barista in the Greek restaurant Bondi Blu not only makes delicious coffee, he also wear really cool glasses... if his stylish genes are brought over from Italy, I don't know, but certainly the Italians are generally a lot more daring and confident in bold, colorful specs than others...
The red pairs are Ray Bans but the white pair... Aldo, you are gonna have to fill me in here!
