Amy T – Assistant Manager & Licensed Optician
I have always been drawn to retro-style frames. I love the new Paradigm line from Kenmark Eyewear. My favorite style is the Paradigm 19-06 in rose gold. The color is so soft and the frame is very lightweight. It gives me the retro look I love with a modern twist on a classic style.
Vera Wang, A Fit [VA30], Black Marble
Since I do have a long, thin face, I went with this rounded square frame. I knew I wanted something bigger than my last glasses which were smaller but I kept gravitating towards the oversize style. I knew I wanted some color to it also since it will complement and help me look put together no matter what I wear!

Color: matte brown. Also available matte black, matte blue, matte dark ruthenium
He says that he chose this frame because they are lightweight and he also likes the Tommy logo that is on the side.

What Betty says about the Motivate by Kensie…
“I chose the Motivate because of the clear color that allows more play with my wardrobe. I’m currently letting my hair go gray and it doesn’t look as stark with my hair and skin tone. The pop of color on the temples keeps the frame from completely disappearing. This frame is very comfortable and fits my bridge perfectly. It is available in two additional colors, brown and blue.”
Here is Jess' Top Frame Pick!
What Jess says about the Fossil 6091...
“I love this frame for its chic, yet versatile, qualities. While technically categorized as being a man’s frame, this certainly could be worn by any woman. Many ladies on the market for a new set of frames don’t realize just how many options they have at their disposal. If she so chooses, a woman could opt for a man’s frame without issue, and many certainly do–the men’s section is one of my favorite places in the store to shop for frames to fit my specific tastes. The frame’s transparency is bold yet stylish, certainly meeting today’s current trends, and because of its neutral color, it could be worn confidently with almost any outfit and by any man or woman brave enough to sport a larger, more up-to-the-minute frame!”
Here is Alice’s Top Frame pick!
Optician: Alice C.
Frame Pick: Zac Posen, style Irina
What Alice says about the Zac Posen Irina...
“I chose the Zac Posen style, Irina, because of it’s classic tortoise shell style with an eye catching gold accent across the top. It has an understated style that is modern, wearable and comfortable.”

What Jess says about the Flax Wildflower...
“I think the Wildflower Flax is a great frame option. Its trendy color along with flattering design makes this frame a very desirable option for most face shapes.
You get the best of both worlds; the advantage of a plastic frame for comfort and thin temples for an overall lightweight feel. The neutral color will match anything and also add a little fun to the frame. With its unique style, I think it is the perfect balance of comfort and class.”
