go local for glasses at eyemaxx

October 6, 2017

I spend about 12 hours a day in front of a screen. My desktop, my laptop, my phone... Over the past few months my eyes started feeling more tired than usual and I noticed things were getting blurry, so it was time for new specs.

 

I've been wearing glasses since the 90s and I've continually been frustrated by high prices, poor selection, and untrained staff. Anyone else feel that way too? But two years ago I wandered into Eyemaxx Optical Studio for the first time, and I've been a huge fan ever since. 

Every single time I visit, this local boutique wows me with their outstanding service, knowledgeable staff, and their gorgeous selection of of designers and styles - many of them exclusive to Eyemaxx. So when I need new glasses, they're the only place I go.

 

I think you're gonna love them too so keep reading for an exclusive deal just for you lovely folks.

 

stylish specs by garrett leight

Eyemaxx recently started carrying a California designer called Garrett Leight, and after checking out their drool-worthy Instagram feed I had to see them in person. So off to Eyemaxx! Here's what I tried on:

 

club house:

kinney:

howland:

milwood:

 

the final contenders

 

In the end I was completely torn between two styles:

 

Club House: kinda 80s chic. Waaaaay out of my comfort zone, a totally different look for me. 

Milwood: frosted pastel pink dreaminess. Very me. But too similar to styles I already have?

 

the winner: milwood!

 

Because really, how's a gal like me supposed to turn down pink? Not happening. I still love the Club House style and they're on my shortlist for next time. But these Garrett Leight Milwood pinkies are just too perfect, and they're light as a feather too.
