On Tuesday I went up to Sydney for a media event to launch the latest research findings on deteriorating eyesight and talk about glasses as a way to express your personality and build an individual look. This is when I met Jenny Kee for the first time, as she was there to share her amazing story and anecdotes from back in time in the 60s swinging London when she made her red cats eye glasses her style signature. What an amazing person she is, completely filled with goodness and positive energy and creativity. We bonded over the love of scarves - and glasses - and how fantastic it is to see people who is confident in their own style and just go for it wholeheartedly rather than being slaves of the latest trends.
Also, thanks to all the lovely girls who came to the event and tried on loads of glasses - hope you found inspiration for both your readers and yourselves:)
I wish that everyone would discover the fun and the opportunities that comes with wearing glasses as an accessory rather than a necessity... Dare to experiment a little with colours, shapes and styles to mix and match with other accessories and outfits and after mood and occations. Jenny's signature is the red and bold - what is yours?
I felt so happy and uplifted after spending time with Jenny - it felt like my soul had a very healthy facelift:-) xxx
