425 Business Magazine Feature


Recently I had the amazing opportunity to be part of 425 Business Magazine's June 2017 spread on trendy eyewear! Although I usually rock contacts, I've been growing my eyeglass collection and was excited to have a pro guide me in a new direction.

Lorali and her adorable pup
Guiding us on our journey for "spiffy spectacles" was Lorali Downes, owner of Lorali's Optical in Bellevue. Lorali approaches eyewear as a blend of function and wearable art, so it was no surprise to find her boutique shop full of funky designs that reflected the vibrancy in her personality. Her collection is mainly curated from Europe and Asia and features a ton of trendy, bold, bright frames that will push you outside your comfort zone.

The highlight for me were the blue frames Lorali picked for me. I've never been a huge fan of the color blue, but was pleasantly surprised to see how much I liked them.

A black outfit is my usual uniform and I tend to rock a bold lip as my pop of color. Lorali showed me how I could, in essence, take my desire for a bold "pop" that I usually reserve for lip color, and have that same type of fun with my eyewear. The blue frames were basically bae, though I was afraid to ask the price.

That's the only thing I didn't do while we were there... I never asked the price! Funny to think about in hindsight because, duh... but I want to keep it 100 and let everyone know I have no idea the price range for these frames.

Lorali chose all of the below frames for me, with exception to the top right which I picked. They were this SICK pair of black frames with gold wire detail! Black is my favorite color and gold is literally everything, so this was a clear winner for me. It's kinda funny to take a look at my pick vs Lorali's picks -- definitely fun to have her push me outside my box and be open.
