 Sara is our spankin’ new optician and we are soooo *excited* for you to meet her!!!
We asked our new superstar a few questions.  Hopefully these will hold you over until you can stop by and meet her for yourself=)
What catches your lil’ eye at Eye Spy?
     *Francis Klein frames with their quirky retro shapes.  Oh, yeah and the awesome birds on the walls.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
     *I was blind for 4 days when I had my eyes sewn shut after eye surgery.  I couldn’t even sneeze without pain.  Ugh.
Who is your celebrity crush?
     *The nerdy dude who plays Dr. Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds.  He is super smart and I secretly love nerds.
What is your favorite food?
     *Any pie from Bang Bang Pie Shop in Logan Square…yum.
What do you do in your free-time?
     *Gardening, yoga, hanging out with tiny humans, and designing/producing my accessory line Little Blue Bay.

New Wooden Frames on the Way….

Written by on May 29th 2012

YES, we already have a wooden frame line at Eye Spy….but this one is a little different, of course!

Meet Anni Shades! A new, small line of wooden frames made in the Midwest. Ohio, to be exact.

Anni Shades wooden eyeglasses

This small company makes every frame to order, so we were able to pick out custom color inlays that peek out in between the layers of beautiful wood. In addition, they plant a tree for every pair purchased:-)

We should have our order within the next week or two, so check back for pictures of our newest collection!

Time to start thinking about Daddio!

Written by on May 25th 2012

Yes, I *know* you are excited for Memorial Day this weeekend…but while you are enjoying a cold one and standing over the barbeque, it’s time to start thinking about your daddio. Father’s Day is next month!

These next three weeks will fly by…and before you know it, BAM. It’s Father’s Day. If you did not take our advice and get your daddio a pair of sunglasses last year, or even if you did take our advice, your dad needs a new pair of shades! Take it from us.

I also know that you do *not* want your pops getting cataracts, or wrinkles, or any other bad stuff…and he needs something to update his look. No offense. So, swing by Eye Spy and we can help you pick out that perfect pair…or at least make up a gift certificate for him:-)

Willkommen to the Future of Sunglasses!!!

Written by on February 23rd 2012

Eye Spy has always been a big fan of Mykita frames, but when we saw their line of Mylon Sunglasses…we flipped out!  They are a perfect blend between fashion and function.  They are made of a polyamide-based material which is lightweight, durable, and great for an active lifestyle.  Not to mention,  they are super stylish!  Each frame in the Mylon collection provides lots of coverage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.  Also, a special hydrophobic coating makes drops of water or particles of dirt immediatly bead up and roll of the lenses, keeping visiblity to an optimum.  Wow, Mykita has thought of everything with this collection!!!

Bedazzle your wardrobe with Francis Klein frames!

Written by on January 26th 2012

We love the retro, large shapes that Francis Klein introduced in their 2012 collection….and we just received a portion of the order we placed last fall in Paris! Made in France, Francis Klein decorates their frames with swarovski crystals, bobbles and hand-painted decor. If you take a close look at the flowered frame, you can see one of the many the custom colors Francis Klein makes for their frames. By laminating silk fabric within the layers of the frame, they create patterns and colors that are unlike any other!

Because each frame is made-to-order, they take six to eight weeks to arrive at Eye Spy…but this also means that you can choose any color in any shape that you want! But do not worry, will will help guide you through the process…or you can just purchase one of the many custom frames that we have in-stock. Every frame looks like an art piece…so stop in and bedazzle your wardrobe!
