Welcome new sponsor Vizio Optic! I have long been a fan of the shop, so I am beyond ecstatic to be partnering with them and featuring a few of my favorite frames and sunglasses from the boutique.
Day job had me situated not far from Vizio Optic in Brookline Village and I often pondered buying these very same Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses many a day. Oliver Goldsmith glasses are made in Notting Hill, under the radar, but up an up and coming brand you need to know about. The type of brand and frame you buy when you want a crisp, fabulous look, that no one else has. I opted for some Celine sunglasses last year and sad to say, wish I had gone with these, something I still find totally unique.
I also wear glasses. Often. When I wear them out and about (and I genuinely do require glasses or contacts, I am blind as can be), they must be stylish. This pair by Vue DC are parfait on both fronts- utterly in vogue, well suited to my face shape, and they appeal to my Francophile sensibilities with 100% French chic design. Another brand that you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere, that makes a wonderfully on trend, quality product.
Hard to find designer frames, in limited quanities and ever expanding, it should come as no surprise that Vizio Optic won best of Boston last year (or that they have won the title 5 times in the last 6 years?!). Dr. Rabkin and her staff are knowledgeable and a delight to work with. They deftly guided me through the shop, steering me towards designers I might be interested in, and most importantly, in finding frames that properly fit my round face! Knowing me, they also guided me towards bold colors and print, which they have in spades.
I had an easy time wearing both frames with my new favourite maxi skirt and an old favourite, this striped Jennifer Chun top. I had a harder time, however, not keeping either of these beauties for myself. Santa, if you are listening......
