Getting to Know Hue

30 Mar

Things are looking warm and bright for 2011. From uplifting honeysuckle to the cool hues of blue, eyewear styles are rich in color this season – even the lenses.

When it comes to eyewear this spring, color is showing face in a big way. From colored lenses to sultry specs, eyewear is definitely a statement piece that will add an instant wow factor to your wardrobe.

Here’s a look at some of the hottest hues in lenses and frames for the coming season:

Take a Tint
Lenses in blue and green pack a punch while amber and rosy tints add femininity.

Sunnies are red, specs are pink, eyewear really is the best gift don’t you think?

9 Feb

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we know you’re probably twiddling your thumbs trying to conjure up a creative gift for your significant other. Candy hearts, chocolates, teddy bears and flowers are great, but it’s time to stray away from the norm and get that special someone in your life a thoughtful surprise that they will remember and actually use, like a pair of hot new shades or specs.

Eyewear is a gift that can be worn year round and what’s better is that there’s no such thing as having too many pairs. No matter who is on Cupid’s shopping list, we guarantee that they’ll instantly fall in love once they set their eyes on one of our Valentine themed suggestions.

If you’re worried that you won’t be able to pick out the right frame for your loved one, feel free to freshen up on eyewear tips by perusing our previous blog posts about how to flatter certain facial features or what frames work with different face shapes.

Make your Valentine swoon with one of these pretty in pink or fiery red frames and you just might get a sugary sweet kiss in return.

Beverly Hills Beauty Taylor Armstrong in bebe Shades

26 Jan

A guilty pleasure for many, Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills always lives up to the expectation—drama, drama, drama! Filled to the brim with over-the-top glamour, excessive spending, cat fights galore and plastic surgery, this show is irresistible and endlessly entertaining. Unfortunately, the first season has come to an end, but alas, the reunion (part one) airs tomorrow night at 9 pm EST, and let’s admit it, the reunions are always way more juicy than the regular episodes.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, one of our favorite cast members, Taylor Armstrong, is no longer a small town gal. Since becoming a Beverly Hills resident, Taylor is now the business-savvy Founder and President of eImplement, Inc., a management consulting firm. She also has a mind for fashion, as seen here in these statement-making oversized white bebe (BB7005) sunnies with metal studded temples and gradient lenses by Altair Eyewear.

Can’t wait to see how the infamous feud between Taylor and Kim Richards unravels tomorrow!
