Customer of the Week!!

Written by on June 4th 2013

Check out our customer of the week, Walker!  He is looking very handsome in his new RES/REI Michelangelo frames, and his new haircut! Previously, Walker owned a pair of chunky plastic tortoise frames from Eye Spy. While he looks very handsome in his other frames, it was time to update his prescription…and his look! He requested a more subtle frame this time around…and we obliged:-)

Walker, not to be confused with Walker- Texas Ranger, is such a sweet  dude and these frames perfectly complement his aesthetic. A slight nerd flair with a dash of modern sleekness. These handmade titanium frames feel as good as they look!

In addition to being a great eyewear model, Walker Thisted is a local artist, working in photography and painting…and has a ton of websites to showcase his projects. Recently, he has adopted the pseudonym: Theo Wit.  Take a peek at his artwork here.

Thanks for being our customer of the week Walker! You look awesome!!

Employee Picks: The Lafont Esther

Written by on November 21st 2010

This weekend, we had the full Lafont collection in the store and, let me tell you, it was easy to fall in love.

One frame really stood out. The Lafont ESTHER stole my heart!

I, personally, adore the frame in this dusty rose color:

But if you stop by Eye Spy, you’ll be able to take a peek at this frame in black and leopard.

I love the contrast between the plastic sides and the titanium front. It’s a great way to give the frame a bold look without adding a lot of weight.

I also J’ADORE the little metal decoration at the temples. They’re like a 50s car and they say, “Yes, I am this wonderful.”

The frame is a fairly traditional cat-eye shape, but it doesn’t swoop too much, so the focus is still on the face and delightful eyes of the person wearing it. The Lafont Esther is just one of those frames that makes my heart sing and my feet dance dance dance all the way to Eye Spy!

It’s almost time to bid adieu to our November trunk shows, which have featured all of the new frames from our favorite lines! Hundreds of new frames, in every style and color imaginable. Come in next weekend for the IC! BERLIN Trunk Show on Saturday, November 27 from 11-5!

And if, during the month of November, you bring canned food for donation to Lakeview Pantry, we will take $25 off your complete Rx eyewear purchase.
