I bet you don’t think about it often, but have you ever noticed when you’re in a certain mood that you listen to a certain kind of music? That is because the music evokes a certain feeling in you. We do that with other things too. When we are happy, we are confident and we look nicer than when we feel blue. What certain shades say about you…

Aviators: Aviators are a classic sunglasses style. Originally designed for our pilots in 1936 and put out there by…. You guessed it: Ray Ban! The Aviator became a well-known style of sunglasses when General Douglas MacArthur landed on the beach in the Philippines in World War II. Newspaper photographers snapped several pictures of him wearing them. This says two things to me: Fashion & Function. The person who loves Aviators is a grounded person, relaxed, but still stylish.

Cat Eye Glasses: Became popular in the 1950s and 1960s among fashionable women and are usually associated with the Beehive hair style (classy). Some lovers of the Cat Eye style: Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and more recently, Lisa Loeb. As you can tell from that list of people who wear …

The family that shades together stays together.  I have been pondering what to write to all you brilliant people out there this week.  Upon doing so I started exploring some pictures of my family in different glasses. Interestingly enough, I started to notice a trend. Then I wondered if all families had little trends like ours? So while we’re exploring my family and our crazy little trends, be thinking of yours…

My family loves wearing Wayfarer style prescription eye glasses. Trendy, bold, and just the right amount of nerdy-ness. We love frames that draw attention to us, mostly big, bright, obnoxious frames. The other picture is my custom prescription Hello Kitty glasses. I got these adorable frames off Etsy and then had our lab make some 10% pink gradient Rx lenses for them. They did a fabulous job! Once again, big, nerdy, and obnoxious! The crazy thing is much of our lives we have not been together, but have ridiculously similar senses of style.

These next couple pictures are of my little brother, Chris. Chris has a laid back more functional kind of style. His prescription eyeglasses, the Wiley X ophthalmic Covert eye Glasses and his sunglasses by Julbo

Although our glasses surely serve a purpose, aren’t they so much more than that? They are also an accessory that we boldly wear on our face, a statement that we make to the world that says “This is who I am”. So for all you artist, innovators, visionaries, and creators, this is for you. Selecting a frame is sometimes a difficult job. There are so many interesting frame designs, styles, and colors that are enticing. Here are a few that I have hand selected for you…

  Interesting design picks: The Roberto Cavalli RC0545, this is a full rimmed zyl frame with a very desirable, bold, swishing shape and it is offered in several beautiful colors. Diva Swarovski Crystals Eyeglasses 5265-765 would be an excellent choice for someone who is into natural beauty. This frame is an unusual rimless frame, so it won’t distract attention from the face, but the temple arms are nothing short of stunning. Cazal Eyeglasses 607 Black & Gold Frame is one of my favorite frames. It is bold & loud & says “Here I am world”. This is a huge, square, full zyl frame with gold accents. This frame is perfect or music artists …
