Serious specs appeal

These are real 'Take a letter, Miss Hepburn' spectacles.
     Now, at Beauty Bible we think of glasses as an important weapon in the beauty arsenal.  Fact:  squinting leads to wrinkles, which leads to angst about ageing.  (And Botox.  Not for us, but fr some women.)
     However, the new collection from Rock Optika features some of the sexiest, most elegant frames we've seen in a long, long while.  Designed by Tom Herrington, they're haute-quality French specs in 10 different styles, with appropriately glamorous names:  Antibes, Gstaad, Palm Springs, San Remo.  What's more, they can be fitted with sunglass lenses.  This gets more 'Audrey' by the minute...
     Find them down the road from Jo in Hastings at The Optical Lounge, and in Covent Garden at McClintock Eyewear.  Check out the website for future stockists, because we predict these will go global.
     Honestly, we just see it.  Rather clearly, as it happens.
