24 hours before I fell ill (Monday), I got to take a peek at the Amy Sacks Eyewear collection. Their showroom is in Portland, but they do direct sales, which keeps overhead low and allows them to focus on quality materials. I'll be frank, I always think that kind of marketing talk is just so much mumbo-jumbo. But then I saw the frames. In a word, yum. The lines are very classic, but the colors are fresh and flattering, and there really is something for every face shape. They are working to develop a sustainable line made from bamboo and recycled plastics, and, wait for it....all profits go toward the Pixie Project, which I can say first hand is a worthwhile cause. I'm not in the market for a new pair of specs just yet, but when I am, I think I'll be donning these. Tres geeky, no?
