CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on April 26th 2010

Although we try to carry the coolest, most awesomest eyewear around, we occasionally have customers who have their own fantastic vision for what they want their eyewear to be.

Landi came into our store and saw that we had a sparkly Francis Klein frame that she liked, but not quite the color that she wanted. No problem, our very own Queen of Specs, went through the Francis Klein catalog and found the perfect color for this most perfect frame.

Dream a little Dream

That is why Landi is our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

RADICAL!

This frame looks absolutely AMAZING! on Landi! With some cooperation between Landi, who had an eyewear dream and the Queen of Specs, who know every frame in the store like the back of her hand, we were able to provide Landi with this sparkly, classy, delightful new frame! Hooray!

And, hey, keep in mind, if you come in to Eye Spy and don’t see that most wondrous frame of your dreams, don’t hesitate to describe what you want. We all do our best to not only know the inventory of frames in the store, but also to be aware of the options (colors, similar shapes, etc) deeper into the collections that we carry.

Oh my! There’s only one week left of the Eye Spy GREEN SCENE! If you ride your bike or the CTA to Eye Spy, you get 10% off a pair of Rx specs. If you donate an old pair of glasses, you receive $25 off a new pair of Rx frames! So come on by and celebrate a greener earth with Eye Spy!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Written by on April 19th 2010

We love when customers want to take a turn with their eyewear. That’s why we love such funky eyewear! Changing one little accessory can make a huge difference!

When Ann Marie came into the store a couple of weeks ago, she wasn’t looking for a big change; she simply needed to update her already awesome eyewear.

After trying the usual suspects (reds-amazing on her!, and tortoise and purple-sigh!) Ann Marie fell in love with a most unexpected new frame, this Francis Klein frame with light blue and green silk inlay!


We love surprises like this! A small change, of the color of eyewear, and WOW Ann Marie has a whole new look!

Congratulations, Ann Marie, you’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Wild on Eye Spy

Written by on April 7th 2010

In her natural habitat, the Anne et Valentin Sunglass frame lolls about the store, sunning her handmade frame in the spring light.

Listen closely and you can hear the wind rustle the grass, you can hear the birds singing, but you can also hear the sound of danger, lurking in the weeds…!


The Anne et Valentin Sunglass frame springs into action, protecting her young from the harmful UV rays of the Sun, narrowly avoiding damage to the cornea and a future filled with cataracts and wrinkles!

Phew!

Wow, eyewear is SO EXCITING!

Like father like son

I think it’s true when people say that great style runs in the family. I mean, check out Jason and Izzy!


When Jason was in the store picking up his new Anne et Valentin frame (what a cool shape!), his son, Izzy, put on some Julbo sunglasses and POW! Insta-cool. He’s like a mini-James Dean!

How could we resist? With style like this, we just had to make Jason and Izzy our CUSTOMERS OF THE WEEK!

Congrats, guys! You’re our Customers of the Week and our new style icons!

Hooray! Spring is here and so are new sunglasses!

We’ve started to receive some of the frames that the Queen of Specs ordered while she was at the big trade show last week!

Hey guys, let’s have a beach party. I’ll bring the Ruffles, you bring the diet coke and lime.
Did someone say party?
Gasp! It’s the ic! berlin gang! They’re so cool! Do you think they’ll invite us to the beach bonfire? Swoon!

Ahhh Spring!

I wear my Stunna Glasses at night

Welcome home, ya stunna!


The Queen of Specs has returned from the eyewear trade show in New York! She had quite a successful journey, purchasing *NEW* shapes from our existing lines (Anne et Valentin, Francis Klein, Lafont, ic! berlin, and Theo).

New! Thierry Lasry! Coming soon!

She also sidled on over and successfully picked up Thierry Lasry sunglasses and Rapp eyewear!

It went like this:

Queen of Specs: Hey
Thierry Lasry: Hey
Queen of Specs: Wanna come over to my place?
Thierry Lasry: Heck yeah!

It’s impossible to resist the charms of such a looker

Queen of Specs: Hey
Rapp: Hey
Queen of Specs: Did it hurt?
Rapp: Did what hurt?
Queen of Specs: When you fell from Heaven?

She’s so smooth!

Eye Spy + Purple Cat-Eye = LOVE!
