FUNZONE from l.a.Eyeworks

Choosing a frame is serious business—the color needs to be flattering, the size can’t be too big or too small, and it must be interesting but not TOO interesting. But what happens when those rules are thrown out the window? Fun, inventive choices are made. Interesting materials such as bright blue felt, fun details including crocodiles and rhinestones, graphic patterns, punchy colors and strong shapes all remind us that eyewear can be lighthearted, bold and FUN. And the best way to accentuate these frames is with a smile, golden or otherwise.
