Somehow, sunglasses ended up being my latest obsession. If you recall, I had previously posted why you need to invest in high quality sunglasses. Picking high quality sunglasses though is not an easy process. Most of my sunglasses choices are out there. Mostly because I want to wear sunglasses that tell a story. Sunglasses that define my look and my personality. It is easy to fall into the trap of buying the latest IT pair of sunglasses, but I would rather invest in pieces that will withstand the pass of time, or at least wear a pair of sunglasses that not everyone will own. That is why I love Insight Eye Care. Each pair of glasses, whether it is reading glasses or sunglasses is carefully chosen to accommodate consumers that are looking for something different from the mass produced Fendis and Pradas. As you can imagine, as a person that loves anything that is unique and tells a story, when Insight Eye Care asked me to be a part of their campaign, I was over the moon. Hello, eyewear. Hello fabulousness.
Even more amazing was the vintage theme the dream team was able to incorporate into our photoshoot. I always considered myself more inclined to the modern style vibe, but I am extremely conservative when it comes to my stylistic choices. Give me some Ingrid Bergman hair glamour like in the movie Notorious circa 1946, a little bit of Grace Kelly wardrobe perfection, and some Rita Hayworth luscious red lips, and I am right in my Old Hollywood element. I loved this photoshoot because it incorporated many firsts for me. First time I wore red lipstick, first time I got my hands on so many beautiful handcrafted eyeglasses, first time pulling off the vintage look. When you have a team like the one from Insight Eye Care you become a vintage scarlet with movie worthy hair. Watch out Blake Lively. From picking up the sassy vintage finds from Meow Boutique to getting all glammed up by the beauty squad to even eating delicious sandwiches while getting ready, I had such a fun day shooting with this incredible team.
If you are in town, I definitely recommend stopping by Insight Eye Care, or even if you are not, I can vouch that it is worth the drive. It is not just about the eyeware it is also about the people that will make sure you leave Insight Eye Care with a smile.
Insight Eye Care has moved their offices to a fab new location at 49 Albert Street, Waterloo. Make sure to visit!
