Customer of the Week!!!

Written by on August 30th 2012

Our Customer of the Week is the dashing Antonio!

Oh, my, is that the Queen of Specs I spy in the background?

Antonio isn’t paying attention to anyone at the moment…he is so happy with his new specs.  These Theo Eye Witness frames are so modern with cool chrome accents and sharp lines.  In addition, all Eye Witness frames are limited edition, asymmetrical frames that are designed and released only once a year. We love them!

…and we love Antonio in them.

Congrats, Antonio, you are our Customer of the Week!!!

We couldn’t be more excited for our Theo Trunk Show tomorrow (it’s from 2-8pm). We will be kicking off the day with a friendly BBQ and some good ol’ apple pie! Theo has been alive and making superb specs since 1989! Each pair is beautifully handcrafted in Belgium and comes in a gorgeous array of colors!

 

Sharing the event with Theo will be the lovely ladies from Girls Rock! Chicago. Girls Rock! is dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music.

Customer of the Week!

Written by on July 3rd 2012

Drumroll please…….Our Customer of the Week is: Johnny!

 

We LOVE how these Theo’s look on him. John, being a fan of Eye Spy since 2000, found just the right frame in this great royal blue and ocean blue…which are fitting colors since you can find him hanging with the sea life down at the Shedd Aquarium.

John’s very first pair of Theo’s was also a round metal frame…but in between, he ventured into acetate frames designed by Lafont and Claire Goldsmith.  Johnny’s hairstylist is around the corner, Heidi at Shear Style, so we are always happy when he stops in to say hi… and occasionally to get new eyewear after getting his locks trimmed !

Theo Loves Eye Spy…and Thursday Trunk Shows!

Written by on June 18th 2012

Join us on July 12th from 2-8 PM for a Theo trunk show!

We’re having a big ole barbecue and cold refreshments (read:beer) to celebrate having all of Theo’s brand-new frames and sunglasses at Eye Spy, straight from the Milan trade show!! Theo has eyewear in every shade under the rainbow, so don’t miss seeing this ground-breaking collection in all its glory at Eye Spy for one day only!

We love Theo this much (arms spread wide!) and are very excited to show all the new shapes and colors to you!! Although we relish trying on every frame in the collection ourselves, it is even more fun to see the collection on all of our customers:-)

Handsome dude in the Cinquante+Quatre frame!

For lovers of round frames…Theo Huitante+Sept

For cat-eye lovers…Theo Tortilla

For lovers of the traditional P3 shape,  with a burst of color…Theo  Septante+Deux

Theo Trunk Show and Barbecue on July 12th!

In addition, we will be donating a percentage of our sales to: Girls Rock! Chicago.

Girls Rock! Chicago is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music. Pretty cool! Through music education programs for girls ages 8-16, they are committed to educating girls about the musical, technical and creative aspects involved in musicianship.  They believe that young girls are rarely encouraged to explore self-expressive creative outlets and are less likely to be given access to musical and technical instruction or equipment…and rock music can be a crucial tool in allowing young women to respond to preconceived notions of what they can become!

     *Francis Klein frames with their quirky retro shapes.  Oh, yeah and the awesome birds on the walls.

Sunglasses and Smooches!

Written by on May 16th 2012

No one loves lipstick quite like the Specs Wrangler, so we thought…why not pair some fabulous lipstick shades with some rockin’ sunglass shades?!

Purple is our favorite color at Eye Spy and we love NO. 15 by Makeup Forever.  We had to pair this amazing shade with Francis Klein’s Flower shades.  Yummy!

 

We adore these Theo Pine shades!  With all the wonderful textures and hues…we decided to go subtle with Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss.

 

Lafont’s Hampton sunglasses are bright and cheery, perfect for a hot summer day.   Why not pair them with MAC’s Good to Go for a perfect bold combo?

Our Customer of the Week is Anthony!!!

Written by on April 18th 2012

Anthony looks so handsome in his brand new specs!  He was ready to upgrade to a bolder pair of frames and he definitely came to the right place.  We had so much fun helping Anthony choose these titanium Theo frames.  The dark blue color highlights his baby blues, the red details add interest…and it looks like this Theo Cinquante+4 frame was made just for him!

Congrats, Anthony, you are our Customer of the Week!!!

Customer of the Week!!!

Written by on March 17th 2012

Our Customer of the Week is Martise!

Martise was overwhelmed on his first visit at Eye Spy.  He was tired of constantly finding similar shapes and muted colors at other opticals.   We love the aviator Wonderglasses he chose which were inspired by the color of a post-it note!  He also chose a pair of chunky black Theos with bold white graphics…and a pair of geranium red and black Theos that are not pictured.

Congrats, Martise…you rocked it and you are our Customer of the Week!!!
