Happy New Year!

We are so over the moon about all of the awesome frames in the store right now that we are celebrating by naming TWO Customers of the Week!

First, we want to highlight CARYN! Caryn chose this beautiful Anne et Valentin frame in red and tortoise. We love the way Anne et Valentin frames are so bright and fun! Check ‘em out!

This expression says, “I know. I’m awesome.”

Now, check out these sparkly BLUE Francis Klein frames on Caitlin. Caitlin has been a customer of Eye Spy for a while, so when we found out she was on her way in to the store to check out new frames, we knew before she even walked in the door that this Francis Klein frame was the frame for her. We love when we are able to picture a longtime customer and the frame that would be a perfect new look. Caitlin is moving to Japan soon, good luck Caitlin! We’re sure, in these sparkly blue specs, you’ll be the toast of Japan!

Blue + rhinestones = win.

Wow! What an awesome way to start a new year! RED Anne et Valentins and BLUE Francis Kleins! 2010, you’re looking gooood!

Yes we did! It’s time for Eye Spy’s January Sale!!!! Whoo!!!

Woo Hoo! Our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK this week was looking for a frame that would take her look into a funky new phase! Congratulations to SANDRA! Sandra wanted frames that would stand out in a crowd and show her personality with flare!


Perfect choice! Sandra chose this fantastic Anne et Valentin frame in red and silver. Anne et Valentin frames are known for not only being whimsical, but also well-made and strong! This pair is made with a stainless steel frame that makes these glasses light as a feather! Sandra is also wearing HOYA freeform lenses! This lenses are all kinds of WHOA, they provide a wider field of vision for distance, computer use, AND reading. Yes, I said it, three in one and they’re super easy to get used to wearing. Sandra will feel like Superwoman with super-sharp vision.

Eye Spy and Sandra, what a team!

Congrats to our Eye Spy/Time Out Chicago contest winner, FRED L!

Fred won a free pair of eyeglasses care of Eye Spy Optical! It was a lot of fun choosing a frame for Fred, he was digging the classic look of the Anne et Valentin sunglasses, which are vintage inspired, but have a definite modern quality to their use of angles and color.

Fred settled on a blue Anne et Valentin sunglass frame:


What a lucky guy!
