Whilst in Paris I discovered a company that scouts for vintage eyewear. They are one of a kind and you won’t find two of the same. For me in 2016 campaigning, unique eye-wear is important for my personal image. I do certainly buy the latest trends but more and more being original and owning eye-wear that no ones else has. Has been my signature statement since 2011. Today I want to inspire you to find your definitive eye- wear style.
They were the first to come out back in 2012 with an oversize message. the bigger the frame the bigger the attitude. Last year Prada came out with the alternative wooden baroque frame. Which I adore because I have broken my nose three times, so a light framed eye-wear are important to me. After a a few hours if the frame is too heavy, it begins to hurt by nose bone. It’s now 2016. I wore the above eye-wear, at Paris fashion Week. Again reinforcing my definitive signature style. Once again the frames got a lot of Social Media attention. Regarding street style photography I was shocked to be asked to stop running after men for awhile and my own style was being noticed. ever. These baroque wooden sunglasses are so comfortable and the colour is very versatile with any different colours let alone different leather jackets.
Have I Met My Match
During my Luxury Week London I met Jonathan Straight in his own words On entering the Bentley I was greeted with perhaps the loudest pair of spectacles I have seen for quite some time sitting on the face of a rather exotic-looking lady. As I had removed my host’s specs she then grabbed another pair from the console. Gracie is wearing one of the Prada Baroque range. Her Bentley was was literally littered with frames and I was advised there were yet more in the trunk.
They are Roberto Cavalli and in summer and winter this lovely shade of purple just brightens up my day. They are a very heavy frame and can only been worn for a few hours. They are just amazing statement of style. To date I’ve not seen anyone trending these on the streets of London let alone Paris. Once again they are my definitive style statement, with my Social Media infleunce, trending eye-wear is about the how the person wears it. People are brands after all when it comes to Social Media Marketing.

Fendi Converted Frames
Way back in 2013 I did this video, explaining that to find your definitive style, you have to think outside the box. In 2016 more so than ever, I do this. The image below is a pair of Fendi frames, I converted from sunglasses to clear eye wear frames.

2016 Sunglasses to Clear Frames
Whilst scouting in one of my favorite eye-wear stores, I noticed these Australian made eye-wear that were made of amazing quality. Only three pairs left and I loved them so much, I knew how I could create my own definitive style once again. Yes originally they were all sunglasses and I did what I do best. When I went back into the store, showcasing these frames. Their reaction confirmed, that in 2016 I know I am a trend setter when it comes to eye-wear.
