Customer of the Week!!!

Our Customer of the Week is Chris!

The Opticianista did a great job helping Chris pick out some new frames.  He fell in love with both pairs of glasses and couldn’t choose, so he bought both!  The Lafont frames below are slightly on the conservative side…

while the Anne et Valentin’s are a little more on the wild side.  We love that they are so dramatically different, but still both look amazing on Chris.

Chris looks super cool in his new specs…and he is our Customer of the Week!

Our Customer of the Week is Pam!

Excitement is in the air in the windy city with the weather being unnaturally warm and sunny these past few weeks.  Sunglasses are a perfect solution against harmful UV rays and discomfort from the blinding sunlight.  Pam was excited to get her prescription in the brown and blue Anne et Valentin Solo frames.  We recommended polarized lenses to give her crystal-clear vision and to eliminate glare.  Pam looks glamorous in her new sunglasses and her peepers are protected!!!

Congrats, Pam, you look amazing…and you are our Customer of the Week!

Wow, the Queen of Specs has a vast collection of glasses!  Organized from oldest to newest, its easy to see how the trends in eyewear has changed. We love how much bigger glasses are now…so much more room to see with.  Also, the rounder retro shapes that have been coming out are fabulous.

That’s not all…there are a ton more frames below.  There is a reason she is the Queen of Specs!

Ara Lucia and her husband, Michael, tread all the way from Michigan to come see us here at Eye Spy!  They are such big fans that they have been coming here for over a decade.  Woah.

Our Customer of the Week is Elizabeth!

 

Elizabeth looks adorable in her fun, new Anne et Valentin frames.  The bold crimson color complements her big brown eyes and dark hair.  She works as a professional actress appearing in Chicago’s theatres and independent films…so its no wonder that she wanted glasses as expressive as she is!
Fun Fact: Elizabeth and her husband, Gilbert Langlois, own the yummiest restaurant, Chalkboard, in Lincoln Square.  It’s such a comfortable, elegant space and they incorporate the influences of so many different cuisines.  mmmmm…

 I don’t want to eat this piece of art from Chalkboard, but…

 …my mouth is watering uncontrollably!

Check out the Chalkboard website http://www.chalkboardrestaurant.com/default.asp  Yum!!!

Congrats Elizabeth!!!
