Laura’s new amber cat-eyes are a quintessential favorite of ours: style-wise, this feminine look doesn’t lose steam over time, making it a great go-to when you need to invest in a hip style with staying power.

 But besides that,  we think Pixie also approves 🙂

Barbara wears her reds well, as evidenced in this attractive new Parisian cat-eye! The translucent two-tone effect keeps the look sophisticated & polished while adding a complementary rosy glow to the complexion… win win!

Eyes on Fremont Collection’s Frame of the Week: Meet the “RKCNDY in Blackish”

This week’s EOF frame pays homage to one of the Seattle institutions to help birth the grunge scene:
RKCNDY in Blackish
This petite, sorta squarish, sorta cat-eyeish shape dares to be a touch of both for those looking for a little edge while maintaining a femme façade- a truly badass shape!  What else can we say about the deep matte grey & frosted white color? It would be SO SEATTLE to declare this color scheme “the new black”….

RKCNDY was located on the corner of Yale ave. where a Springhill Suites now lives.

The RKCNDY was a hole in the wall, all ages club venue at the foot of Capitol Hill & Downtown Seattle, on Yale ave. during the 90’s.  It is legendary for helping cultivate the “grunge scene”, which made many local big hitters such as Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden,and Hole (plus countless other alt rock bands) icons of the music world.  

RKCNDY was a refuge of sorts from the soggy grey mentality of that time- lively crowds engaged in many crowd surfing & mosh pit ventures to get their passive-aggressive angst out of the way.  No doubt, when the doors closed on October 30, 1999 it was a sad day- in a way, the Seattle music scene hasn’t been the same since.

Eyes on Fremont Frame of the Week: Meet the “Lusty Lady in Reddish”

Meet Eyes on Fremont’s


the expressive red is rich without being garish and the matte white temple gives it a sultry touch
A number of memorable institutions have come and gone that contribute to Seattle’s character.  One of those places was the ever-provocative, THE LUSTY LADY. The 30-year old peepshow theater in Downtown Seattle was an women-run cooperative that was best known for its outrageously “punny” marquee display.  It closed its doors in June 2010; passing through downtown’s 1st Ave without the iconic marquee’s cheeky quips hasn’t been nearly as amusing since.
