We know, we know….it’s been awhile. A cold, lonely winter for Framed&Focused. It’s in the winter when things look dead but in reality the old has been shaken off and the new has yet to bloom. That’s where we are. 2018 will see new features, new content, new frames and we are so excited to share those with you. In the meantime lets’s infuse some color into the cold, gray days of winter.

These Miu Miu frames in a luscious cranberrry do just the trick to sweeten the gray, snow white and ice blue of December.

{Fashion Friday-The Optical Boutique-Vancouver}


In preparation for our trip to Vancouver today, we had to take inspiration from one of our favorite eyewear muses, Sue R from The Optical Boutique. We shot with  her a few years back and love to follow her, always floored by her sartorial and optical choices!  Mad Style. She has a knack for print mixing, color and eye popping frames. We could gush for days. So, we have to take our A game in these Fakoshima frames to meet with her and catch up and maybe  do a little shoot to share with you in the future.

As they say, When in Vancover, er I mean Rome. 🙂

{Fashion Friday-Oh Hey, Fall}

Welcome to Fall

HOW is it possibly Fall Already?? I mean, I get it, everyone is sick of sticky, sweaty summer weather but really, is it almost October? OK rant over. The weather is still lovely. It’s time to throw a kimono or long sweater over your normal summer wardrobe and keep on walking. These Thierry Lasry “Cheeky” frames in sapphire acetate bring Fall in smooth like pumpkin butter.

{Fashion Friday-Pool Lounging}

Destin SoireDon’t hate me because I’m still not home. It’s my last evening on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida and that calls for a farewell soiree by the pool. Friends, family and bubbles are the only way to send this girl back to the big city. A relaxed poolside event like this calls for a beach ensemble topped with big city frames. A Mara Hoffman suit topped with these gorgeous Thierry Lasry Turquoise Cupidity Frames make the perfect combination.


{Fashion Friday-Beaching It}

Beaching itIt’s time for my annual trip home to see the Rents. First up is lunch with my mom. I’m so excited to play with family and friends and hang at the beach for a week. I will be in nothing too fancy or stuffy for a good solid chunk of time so flowy dresses and wrap sandals will be perfectly topped with these Victoria Beckham Aviator Mirrored Frames. They couldn’t be more apropos with one of the largest Air Force Bases located smack dab in the middle of my home town. I will fit right in. What’s that you say? Of course, I’d love to take an F-35 for a spin!

See you in a week.
