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.

Check out these two adorable ladies in their sweet new frames. Miriam (on the left) is wearing her new Theo Dore frame, and Susan (on the right) is wearing her brand spankin’ new Anne et Valentin Fanzine frame.

They look so happy and awesome in their new-found frames…and who wouldn’t be?!

It’s hard to tell from this shot, but they both have blue frames. Miriam’s Theo frame keeps the blue a bit of a secret…unless you are tall and can see the top of her frame! Here is a closer look:


Congrats to Miriam and Susan on being our Customers of the week!

He set his sights on these awesome Theo Moser frames and didn’t look back.  His eyes are perfectly centered in these glasses for a great fit.  The Tokyo tortoise, accented by a pop of tangerine, beautifully contrasts his dark hair…and his *big* grin tells it all!!!

Our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK this week will be joining the Eye Spy family real soon, well, kind of… MATTHEW is engaged to a lovely lady named Alex, a longtime customer of Eye Spy!

Matthew and Alex came in to the store last winter and tried on some awesome frames. Matthew kept these LAFONT frames in the back of his mind and as the wedding day got closer and closer, he found it was time to update his look before the big day!

It’s true that Alex has great taste in more than glasses!

Congratulations, Matthew, on being our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK and on your upcoming (just around the corner) wedding!

So many frames to choose from! Mark your calendar! The November Trunk Shows are just around the corner! Every Saturday in November we’ll be hosting a trunk show from several of our lines including Theo (November 7), Anne et Valentin (November 14), IC! Berlin (November 21), Francis Klein (November 21), Lafont (November 28). They’re going to bring the full collections including new styles you’ve never seen before!!!

Check out these gorgeous Anne et Valentin frames on KAREN!!!

Isn’t it fantastic how she can wear such a bold frame and the first thing you notice is her sparkling blue eyes?! That’s why we love the designs of Anne et Valentin, they have a way of making a statement, while allowing the person wearing them to still look like their own beautiful and charming self.

So, Congratulations Karen! You’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!!!

Sheldon came to us looking for a round tortoise frame a la William Gibson:

I’m William Gibson, I wrote Neuromancer.

We liked the inspiration of a round frame for Sheldon, but we knew he could pull off something a little bolder. He looks *great* in this frame from the Anne et Valentin Factory series.

makin’ Gibson jealous

Not only is this a great look, but the frame itself is nice and strong with reinforced hinges. The design of the frame is really special, with edges hand cut to give the sides multiple angles.

Great choice, Sheldon, and congratulations on being our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

……don’t forget!…….

Stop by Saturday, June 13th for our Sunglass Trunk Show featuring the frames of Persol, Maui Jim, and IC!Berlin! We’ll have a party going from 11-5! Get your Dad a snazzy new pair of UV Blockin’ specs for Father’s day!!!
