Customer of the Week!!

Written by on January 19th 2014

Greetings Eye Spyers!!

We have a new Customer of the Week to introduce!

She goes by the name of SHEILA!!

Sheila first chose these beautiful turquoise and red Francis Klein ”Risk” frames with red and silver stones and decor. We LOVE what that beautiful blue frame front does for those pretty peepers!! And we had this color combo made just for us…so Sheila is the only lady in world with this frame:-) How cool.

Sheila also couldn’t  walk away from these pink and gray gradiant Rapp “Jane” frames, so she got both! We couldn’t be happier that these unique frames found a perfect home, and that Sheila followed out favorite motto: “If you can’t pick one…pick both!”

It’s customer of the week time again! This time we went with a dynamic duo… Cassie and her roommate Adrienne! Yes, Adrienne does work here, but we could not resist.

First up is Cassie in her speckled Gentle Monster Fafala frames! 

Turns out Adrienne picked this beauties out for Cassie.

Adrienne has been dreaming of a cat-eye since she started at Eye Spy… she finally found the perfect one: Francis Klein Wing in a brand-new color! It’s a navy acetate with a mosaic-detail peeking out from behind.

Roomie love in fabulous glasses.

 Clearly Adrienne is beyond excited about her glasses choice, as is Cassie!

Angela! Oh Angela, how we love you…and your sister’s great taste in glasses!

Angela fell in love with these Theo  Soixante-Deux frames….and had to have this beautiful tortoise and purple color, so we special ordered it for her:-) Theo frames are available in at least 8 different colors…and some frames are available in 20 different colors!! OMG.

Usually, we do not have all 8 colors in-store….
BUT, this Saturday the 16th, we are having a trunk show with every shape AND every color in the Theo  collection!! Don’t faint…just come in and try-on everything!

Angela’s sister, Ann, was our customer of the week this summer in her Francis Klein frames:-)

AND Ann purchased these Anne et Valentin frames in 2009…

Thanks for coming to Eye Spy for more than 10 years and letting us fit your beautiful faces:-) xox.

Customer of the Week!!

Written by on September 15th 2013

It’s Sunday Funday, folks! Which means we’ve got a new Customer of the Week! And that customer happens to be Gretchen!

We’ve been a little biased towards sunglasses these last few weeks. But come on….these are too good not to report.

Gretchen hopped on the express train to Shadyville and pulled out all the stops on not one, but TWO pairs of tricked out shades. The first ones are the purple and turquoise lace Lafont “Luxours”. You can’t really get more flashy than these.

 

Lafont “Luxour”

HOWEVER, in addition to what I like to refer to as the “Elton John inspired” Lafonts, Gretchen also made another bold choice in choosing these Francis Klein “Pinup” shades, adorned with guilded bumble bees!  Yea that’s right….BEES! Needless to say, wherever she goes, she is going to get noticed with these spectacular works of ocular art!

Introducing our FABULOUS Customer of the Week: Ann!!

Ann has been a faithful Eye Spy-er for years. During her most recent visit, she brought her entourage and they came to a unanimous vote on these sass-tacular black Francis Klein “Help” frames with ruby-red stones. Ann purchased these beauties specifically to wear to a gala event, but we think she will be wearing them everyday:-)

Introducing Eye Spy’s 2013 Lookbook!!

Written by on August 5th 2013

Documented for the Capture the Road,  a cross country photography project by Chris Hershman & Amanda Farmer…Eye Spy’s new video lookbook is nothing short of fabulous! Sit down, relax…and feast your eyes on the hand-crafted eyewear and beautiful scenery.

Capture The Road Presents: An Eye Spy Optical Film from Chris Hershman on Vimeo.

 

Chris and Amanda are city dwellers and long-time friends with one thing in common; their many passions and talents don’t fit neatly inside “the box”. On July 16th, they took a break from their 9-5s and made a 12-day-long road trip across the country.

Their goal on this journey was to step outside of the box, meet new people, see the countryside, capture beautiful images, and explore the many facets of themselves. This is where they documented their journey as artists, philosophers, travelers, and lovers of people. This is where they captured the road.

Querida came in on a whim wanting frames that are as sassy as she is. Well, we sure did find them! We had a tough call between two frames but these ones really are perfect for her. Querida’s style and flair inspired our Specs Wrangler to get an asymmetrical haircut as well! Thanks for being so awesome Querida and being our sassy customer of the week!
