Put simply this glasses case is fab!
It's available in a range of patterns and is finished on the exterior in a waterproof oilcloth type fabric - meaning that it is wipe clean. The zip opening goes right around and works really well with the design of the case.
Inside there is a really nice little glasses cloth to clean your glasses with.
What's really good about this case on a practical level is how sturdy and firm the box is - which means that you could even drop the case on the floor and your glasses would probably be fine. I actually think this case is even sturdier and robust that the standard cases that you get from the optician - and it's a really great size too - it even fits my aviators in it as well.
Overall this case is a must for anyone who travels with their glasses and wants them to be kept safe.
I wear my contact lenses practically every day, however, first thing in the morning and after dinner I take them out to give my eyes a bit of a breather, and then the glasses come out. I always carry one of the two pairs of glasses that I own in my handbag so if something happens my lens, or it simply starts annoying my eye, I can take it out and put on my glasses. For a long time, I have simply used the Specsavers case that my glasses came in - nothing fancy, plain, solid but does the job, however, I was very pleasantly surprised that for my birthday this summer, my mother in law (and father in law) bought me this Cath Kidston Glasses Case, as part of my present. My mother in law is a big Cath Kidston fan and I have admired some of the things she owns from the range, which probably lead to me receiving this gift. After looking online, I see that this glasses case comes in at around £14, which to be honest is too expensive for what it is, but at the same time, I know how expensive Cath Kidston stuff is and therefore wasn't wholly surprised when I saw the price.
My Cath Kidston glasses case comes designed with little birds, and there is no doubt it really has that shabby chic look, and is very very pretty, and much nicer to bring out that my Specsavers case. What I like about this case is that it is sturdy, it isn't like one of those flimsy sunglasses cases you get, so even if it gets to the bottom of your bag, which happens to mine a lot, your glasses will still be protected from damage when in this case. THe inside of the case however is soft, so you needn't worry about your glasses getting scratched either. There is also a little cloth that comes with the case to clean your glasses, which is a nice addition.
Unlike my SPecsavers case, this glasses case uses a zip to open and close, which goes most of the way around the case. THis isn't as quick as the simply open and close of my original, but it is an effective way of keeping the case closed in your bag.
All in all, although I don't think I would personally pay this price for a glasses case for myself, it really is a lovely looking case and I am quite proud to have it in my handbag and like to show it off. So if you like to treat yourself, or get someone else to treat you, this is a lovely case from the Cath Kidston range - a whole step up from Specsavers!
I bought the Cath Kidston glasses case as a present for my mum on her birthday recently. At £12, I thought perhaps it was a bit steep but you're paying for the name and the famous pattern. If it hadn't been a special occasion I wouldn't have been willing to spend that on such a basic product.
This glasses case is very attractive, and wipe clean too which is always good considering I have a small child who loves getting her sticky hands on everything. It is a pretty robust case which I can't see being easily damaged, and that is a major plus considering how expensive glasses are, you don't want them getting damaged. It fits easily into a handbag as it is quite a compact case but without having to stuff your glasses into it. The zip is strong and unlikely to break, as the tab on some others might break off if pulled too hard.
Overall, this glasses case is very cute, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to jazz up their specs and handbag a little bit.
This is quite a recent purchase of mine and I bought it at the beginning of the month from John Lewis. As far as I am aware, John Lewis is the only place that sells the Cath Kidston glasses cases apart from the official Cath Kidston stores and website. I paid £12 for the case which is quite expensive considering you can get similar ones from Primark for £2ish, however I thought i'd treat myself seeing as it's my 20th soon. I bought the glasses case mainly to keep my new glasses safe while in my cluttered uni bag as I wear them quite frequently to lectures as I am awful at putting contact lenses in!
I also bought it because I simply couldn't resist it. I am definetly a Cath Kidston addict! There were 3 colour options/designs to choose from - Birds, Tiny Rose or Field Flowers. I chose Birds, which can be seen in the picture above. The case is a nice shade of creamy white with colourful flowers printed all over it and a few birds (Robins, I think) can be spotted too when you look closely. It's a beautiful pattern - very pretty, delicate and discreet. The print is a pretty well known Cath Kidston design and I have the Bird notebook so it matches which is anothe reason why I bought it lol.
The case is the average size of any other glasses case and measures 16 cm long with a 3.5 cm depth. It is just the right size to fit into my reasonably small bag without taking up too much space. The material is soft and smooth to the touch the case is made out of 100% PVC coated cotton which means it is easy to wipe clean. The material feels very high quality and luxurious and feels nice and sturdy. The case has a simple zip which has a little white rubber tag on it with cath kidston's name in red handwriting, showing that the product is a genuine Cath Kidston item. The zip goes all the way around so provides quick and easy access to my glasses.
The interior of the case is lovely and soft and has a foamy type material which keeps my glasses nice and safe. I'm really happy with this case, it looks lovely and keeps my camera protected. Despite the somewhat expensive price tag I give this 5/5 Dooyoo stars due to how high quality it looks and feels. The only downside I can think of is that there is no strap to hold the case with so I have to hold it like a clutch but as I usually keep it in my bag this isn't an issue.
