go/see/buy: made eyewear.

go/see/buy Uncategorized

i used to be one of those people who had one pair of sunglasses; my $15 silver aviators from urban outfitters is what i pretty much wore with everything. i didn’t see the point of fancy sunglasses as i would probably sit on them, otherwise break them, or lose them anyway. that was until i found an amazing pair of marc jacobs frames at the maiden lane boutique. since then, it’s been a slippery slope to a full-fledged sunglasses wardrobe. i love the idea of customizing anything and everything, and with made eyewear, you can do just that. pick the shape and color of your frame, choose the temples (they can even be two different colors!), add engraving or a pattern, and pick your lens or send in your prescription—all starting at just under $85. you can even upload a photo to help you choose the best frame shape for your face. at the made launch event, i instantly gravitated to the “alex,” an oversized square shape which mirrored what i love about my celine’s. i had been looking for two pairs of sunglasses to finish off my collection: a black pair and one with mirrored lenses. i was able to get both features in one pair…and add my initials on the side. the best part? shipping is free and there’s a 30 day return policy (hard to come by in the customized space). if you are in the market for a new pair of sunglasses or eyeglasses, or just want to add some fun to your collection, then give made eyewear a look.
