Our Customer of the Week is Elena!

Elena looks absolutely gorgeous in her new Anne et Valentin crimson frames.  The modern cat-eye shape is a classy touch, while the ivory hinges gives them dimension.  We love how the top of the glasses follow Elena’s brow line!  Although the frames are a bold color, they look natural and don’t overpower Elena’s beautiful features.

Drop on by to see our new Anne et Valentin frames, our order is in from the Silmo Trade Show in Paris!!!  Or stay tuned for our next blog…there will be new pics posted :)

Our Customer of the Week is Merida!

Halloween is approaching, but there is nothing scary about these Anne et Valentin frames on Merida.  The frame accentuates her heart-shaped face and the deep purple hue looks great with her deep brown eyes.  The soft cat-eye shape is right on trend with shapes this fall.  We love the bright lime corners which add a playful personality to the frames…Congrats Merida, you are our Customer of the Week!!!

Don’t forget to stop on by for our 13th Anniversary on Saturday, October 15th from 10am-6pm.  There will be games, cocktails, cupcakes…and give-aways!  Also, in appreciation of our long-time customers, we are having a HUGE flash sale.  Stay tuned for details:)

Our Customer of the Week is Judy!!!

Judy came in looking for a subtle frame, but still wanted a little edginess.  These Anne et Valentin frames rocked her socks off.  She tried these glasses first and could not imagine her life without them.  The translucent blush color is subtle but looks beautiful against her skin tone. 

This model is from the “Factory” line which is inspired by the Factory studio created by Andy Warhol in the 60s in New York.  Factory frames are designed and manufactured in France using a process different from any other.  Each frame in the Factory collection is finished and polished, then buffed or roughed to create a partially unfinished look. Some areas are polished smooth, while others have a matte or slightly rough texture.  Zamac, which is a hypo-allergenic material, was used for hinges and the temple tip detail.

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

Our Customer of the Week is Lisabeth!

Even thought it was raining, these Anne et Valentin frames sure brightened our day!  Lisabeth looks so happy wearing this flattering cat-eye lens shape.  You can’t beat the teal hue and unique drop temple (when the temples start lower on the frame).

Lisabeth also looks hip, but classy in her leopard-print Lafont sunglasses.  Leopard-print is a huge trend on the runways this fall!  The frame shape is timeless and can be worn for years to come. 

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

All hope abandon, ye who enter here…

Ahoy, hope everyone is ready to unleash their inner pirate for international Talk Like a Pirate Day on September 19th!  It looks like Dr. Newton is ready, with his parrot and his wicked glasses.

The Anne et Valentin frames Brad wore yesterday were worthy of a pirate and his cool shirt sure sealed the deal :)  We think that it is fantastic the way these frames follow his eyebrow line.  The dark to light hue is so modern and the model comes in so many varieties of colors!  Dr. Brad Newton is here to give exams every Wednesday from 12-7pm….so come on by and get your peepers checked.

Our Customer of the Week is Cathy!!!

Cathy looks darling in her two new pair of glasses.  The Rapp frames she already picked up look so hip with the dark to light gradation and matte finish. 


Cathy can’t wait to pick up her Anne et Valentine frames.  The glasses follow her brows emphasizing her pretty eyes and the orange hue really helps the frame pop!  What fun it is to find two equally fabulous frames to switch between depending on your mood, outfit, or occasion.
