Don’t let yourself get stuck in the so-called wintertime slump! Instead, distract yourself from the frigid and dreary weather by shifting your thoughts to the warmer months ahead! That’s what we most certainly did this week, partnering with Stylesight, an online trend forecasting company, to put on an exclusive spring/summer 2014 eyewear trend and product preview! In Stylesight’s oh-so-chic office space smack dab in the middle of New York City’s fashion district, the event was an absolute hit among attendees from O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan Latina, Accessories Magazine and “Forbes.com” blog, just to name a few!
After mingling and munching on a delicious mid-morning brunch, guests were given a special presentation, from Stylesight’s Trend Director Jamie Thomas, outlining four trends: Real, Rational, Creed and Eden; perused, tried on and snapped photos of lots of fabulous eyewear styles on display; and were given a lil spexy pick-me-up before heading out! Overall, ‘twas a spec-tacular affair to remember! Get your very own sneak peek of the gathering below!
