the BEST place to buy sunglasses


I was recently introduced to Sameera Ebrahim from The Spectacle Boutique, and it couldn’t have come at a better time; my previous optometrist was a pretty far drive to get to and I was looking for someone a little closer that was reputable and I could build a relationship with. I  find an optometrist a very personal thing, and I’m not comfortable going to just anyone unless I’m referred!

The Practice

The Spectacle Boutique is conveniently situated in Northcliff, in a mini-complex that’s easily accessible with sufficient parking (I honestly added this only because I hate going to busy street practices because it’s inevitable that parking will take forever to find). My experience at the practice was exceptional; Sameera has a very calming personality and her staff are friendly and helpful. They have state of the art equipment which makes the ordeal so much more comfortable, and they accept all medical aids.

Sunglasses and Spectacles

The best part, however, is that they stock all the latest international brands of sunglasses and spectacles (like D&G, Prada, Tom Ford, Bvlgari etc) at much cheaper prices than the commercial sunglass stores, and if they don’t have it in stock, they can order it for you (all they need is the frame code, color code & size and they will courier your purchase anywhere nationwide)! There’s a huge selection available for both men and women as well as kiddies. I’m obsessed with these floral D&G sunnies and specs with the matching kid’s floral sunnies and specs. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything cuter (and also wish I had a daughter so we could take selfies with them. Hashtag goals).
