With the tip of my index finger, an adjustment is made to the bridge of my spectacles, which leads my simplistic mind on a journey of make believe in which I play a Fleet street Journalist with ink stained fingers and tortoise shell specs to hand indulging in liquid lunches with Paul Callan and chums. All is bliss in my "Anything goes" daydream utopia, that is until the spectacles are laid to rest and reality proves to be far from fantasy. There's no harm in dreaming right? For those who are kind enough to take an interest in my questionable tastes and daydreams, you will remember that I purchased a new pair of spectacles a month or so ago. My child like excitement was met with bitter grief when the beauties at SEEN gently broke the news that Oliver Peoples had discontinued the very choice of acetate I had so longed for. Anywho, After many a desperate email sent to the lovelies at Oliver Peoples, pleading them to take pity on my despair. The search for the illusive Dark Tortoise Black frames proved unsuccessful and so I settled for the equally dreamy El Mirage Tortoise. What do we think?

To prove my desperation- Promise you wont laugh....
"Hello, Hope all is well!
I recently made my third, yes third purchase of Oliver Peoples Specs. However, to my great dismay (I was almost in tears – HA!) the great team at SEEN – Manchester, England – Informed me that the specs I had chosen were no longer available. I was hoping that maybe you – the talented and o so great people at Oliver Peoples could do some investigating and help put the twinkle back in my eyes and track down a pair of Riley’s (the smaller size) in Dark Tortoise Black.
I would be ever so grateful – as without this third pair of Oliver Peoples Specs, Im afraid I might just contemplate that very option that we proud short sighted individuals never say - Lasik!!
P.S. love the Brand!!!!"
