Katie Atkinson, editor of Manchester based fashion blog Gold Dust and a regular customer at Specsavers, was invited to the Manchester Arndale store last week for a frame styling session.

Specsavers invited Katie to the store to treat her to a frame styling session and a free pair of frames after her recent, positive blog posts about Specsavers.

Using her £150 gift voucher, Katie was able to take advantage of the store’s buy one get one free offer on frames and decided to go for a pair of frames for every day use and a pair of sunglasses as her second, free pair. During a style consultation with one of the store’s trainee dispensing opticians, Katie was led through the wide range of designer and own brand frames that were available to her.

After much deliberation and trying on numerous pairs of frames, Katie set her sights on a pair of matt-finish, tortoiseshell frames by Replay and a pair of round-shaped sunglasses from Cheap Monday.

To make sure the frames were just the right size for Katie, the store spent time re-shaping both sets of frames to make sure fit her face perfectly.

Katie said: 'I'm delighted with my choices and I can't wait to start wearing them, I'm also looking forward to writing another blog post about my visit to Specsavers.'
