On 11.11.11 I finally brought to fruition something I had been cooking up for probably a little over a year. I began shooting eye wear a few years ago. Mostly , well not mostly, all product shots. Oddly enough I really enjoy it and I think the pieces are actually quite beautiful. I get into a complete state of Zen when it's me and a few trays of frames and those of you who know me, know I don't really do Zen. So once I moved to New York, I began to see with new eyes, all the people around with great glasses and with great style. Since I have never needed glasses (before you get all twitchy, I am getting to that age where the ones I now have will be more functional and less for style purposes and I am ok with that so simmer down) I guess I hadn't really noticed them until I moved here. And here, let me tell you, so many people just look great in general.
And so last night, I birthed a style blog called Framed & Focused, dedicated to eye wear and people who rock their frames hard. First up was the ever stylish Beth Jones in some sunnies from Crossroads, followed by Crazy Aunt Lindsey in some optical frames by Tortoise & Blonde. So if you wear glasses out of necessity or just as a fashion statement be sure to put together your whole look because you never know when I might tap you on the shoulder and ask to shoot you for my blog. It could happen.
New post will be up tomorrow so go check it out!
