    Event LOVE: @nikiandlola pop-up shop

    “Boy meets girl. They get married, and have kids. She designs jewellery, and he makes it. That is where the story begins.”

    Yesterday I went over to Sweet Woodruff flower shop to celebrate the launch of Niki & Lola’s “early nomad” capsule collection. I first saw a Niki & Lola piece on Angie a few months ago, and pretty much lost my marbles, so when I got the invite to the Niki & Lola pop-up shop event, there was just NO WAY that I was going to miss it. I loved every single piece in the collection. I love the simplicity, the attention to detail, I especially love how all the pieces have this strength to them, while being delicate at the same time. My faves were the shield ring, the kingdom necklace, and there was this crazy cuff  (I can’t remember what it was called but I LOVED it… I think it was called the Polygonia cuff).

    This cuff WILL be mine one day. Love. Love. Love.

    The shield rings!

    Love @KayTranEyewear

    “A new, perfect frame with a different fit”

    KayTran Eyewear is based on iconic, reinvented classics that inspire nostalgia. Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication, as are fit and functionality.  Designed in Canada, every pair is individually handcrafted by skilled artisans in Italy. They are created with luxurious materials: high-grade Italian acetate and premium Carl Zeiss CR39 lenses, which are scratch-resistant, durable, and provide high optical clarity.

    “We don’t buy jeans or clothes that don’t fit, so why should we settle for poor-fitting eyewear?”- Kay Tran

    “Finding eyewear that doesn’t slide down your nose or sit on your cheeks shouldn’t be so impossible!”

    “Kathy Tran was raised and currently resides in downtown Toronto. She worked in corporate finance, but always had entrepreneurial aspirations to harness her creative, artistic side. While completing her M.B.A. at the Richard Ivey School of Business, she first conceived the idea of redefining fit and bringing an alternative to the mass-produced, cookie-cutter fitting eyewear in the marketplace. She struggled for years trying to find stylish sunglasses that fit petite nose bridges since age four. The spring 2012 collection is sold online and will be available as of February at Goldstein Boutique, Optic Zone and Pink Eye Optical in Toronto, and Artsee Eyewear and Maximeyes in New York.”

    Gotta get me a pair… or two!
    peace and love
