I love love. I have been blessed to have found my perfect love early in life and he has unconditionally loved me with patience and encouragement for 10 years of marriage.
My other love is glasses, and for that reason I cannot ignore one of my favorite loves on the day to celebrate love, Valentine’s Day.
As an Optician, I have been lucky enough to find my niche in a profession that I love. As an Optician I have the pleasure to style people in eyewear that not only makes them see their best, but look and feel their best as well. I get so excited every time I am able to find the perfect frames for a client, something that highlights their skin tone, makes their eyes pop, balances their facial features and most importantly enhances their confidence when wearing their glasses.
My sage advice is to do what you love, surround yourself with people you love and show love to others. Even though it’s just one day, Valentine’s Day couldn’t be a better excuse to celebrate LOVE!
When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of hearts and flowers, everything in shades of red and sentimental words of love written in cute cards and when these things come together with adorable glasses I simply cannot resist!
This year just in time for Valentine’s day I fell for these lust worthy red frames by Etnia Barcelona. A new release for spring, The “Tivoli” embraces not only the theme of the season, but an eyewear trend that is sure to be front and center as a spring trend in eyewear, color blocking.
These cherry red frames remind me of the lacquered outer shell of a candy apple, with a pop of hot pink, they create an unexpected color combination that works against all odds. From afar it might seem the visual interest of these frames lies in the bright color and larger oval shape.
These frames are worth closer inspection; you’ll notice the thoughtfully beveled edge details that create a gorgeous architectural element and help reflect, enhancing the bright red crystal acetate.
I found the perfect outfit to compliment a red frame in this irresistibly adorable navy tie neck blouse by RW&Co. It might look like polka dots, but look a little closer, they are actually little red lips!
And just for fun because it’s Valentines day, I had to have these gold wire rim heart shaped frames. A playful frame style, playing off the minimal metal frame designs that are beginning to make their mark in mainstream frame trends. Not for ideal for prescription lenses, they can instead be worn with faux lenses for non-prescription wearers or over contact lenses. Wearing fun frames even for non-eyeglass wearers can enhance an outfit, so up your style and eyecessorize yourself, I know it will be love at first sight!
