Those baby blues…! Blair’s stunning eyes are perfectly “framed” by this eyewear model from our Eyes on Fremont collection. The matte “beach glass” finish has an alluring effect & compliments his style!

 Blair’s outgoing and warm nature is infectious! We wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve had the pleasure of meeting him around the city, as he is a very busy managing broker for Coldwell Banker’s Capitol Hill branch.

Eyes on Fremont Collection’s Frame of the Week: Meet the “Magnolia” in Greenish

This week we share another great feminine shape for the EOF collection:
MAGNOLIA in Greenish
14651451900 91e89b7036 z
This is a great option for those petite faces or for someone looking for a softer, yet uplifting look.  The defined arch of this frame brings attention to the eyes & creates a flattering contour to the brow line.  The green-teal tone highlights just about any eye color-  especially blue, green, or hazel eyes.

We named this model after Seattle’s picturesque neighborhood, tucked in the west end of town. This part of the city is actually on a Peninsula, so its often considered to be “out of the way” or more secluded than the rest. But actually, its so close! Magnolia attracts all the nearby urban dwellers looking to “get to nature” because of Discovery Park, the largest park in the city. It boasts over 500 acres of natural land, trails, & bay shore beaches, as well as a Native American cultural center and Environmental Learning center.

Frame of the week: Eyes on Fremont Collection’s “The Burke G.” in Blackish

As many of you may already know, we have our own in-house collection that is available at a very reasonable package price of $175 for frame & standard lenses. 

Every few months we release a couple of new models to keep the selection up to par. We would like to introduce you to one of the newer models…
THE BURKE G. in BLACKISH
14815175886 0ce0bc1a86 z

This model is the
ideal urban chic that borrows a pronounced brow line from classic horn-rimmed looks.  Though leaning towards a masculine silhouette, this style is a popular unisex look. Medium brown temples add pleasant neutral contrasting to the matte black front: a utilitarian, yet polished color scheme.

This style is named after the Burke-Gilman Trail in King County, one of the most travelled commuter trails in the country. Previously a rail-trail that was converted to a pedestrian-friendly urban trail system in the 1970’s, it spans over 17 miles.

The mostly paved Burke-Gilman starts at Golden Gardens Park on Puget Sound and winds through many landmarks of the city, including University of Washington, Gasworks Park, and Lake Union. The trail goes eastbound through a number of neighborhoods & parks to Bothell Park. For those who want to continue on, it connects to Sammamish River trail; another 11 miles on this connect will land you at Marymoor Park in Redmond.

The Burke-Gilman Trail has inspired other cities to plan and build similar commuter trails, as it is very popular for both transportation-based and recreational use.
