seeing red

Sorry for the lack of posts! Problems with my internet connection at my apartment which will HOPEFULLY be resolved by tomorrow. Anyway! Last Friday I had the pleasure of taking photos at the Winter Open House for Labrabbit Optics. Drink were drank, performance art was performed, little red dots appeared on the walls and people's cheeks. The shop is run by my longtime optician and dear friend Coyote, and his spectacles span the decades of vintage eyewear and thoroughly contemporary frames. If you wear glasses, his shop is basically the Hanging Gardens of eyewear boutiques. A serious must-visit for Chicagoans.

Here's some of my favorite photos from the event!

Coyote himself, owner of this fine eyewear establishment.

Sigourney Weaver on the wall, because why the hell not?

...a picture of Sigourney from the 70's seems to fit in perfectly here. Seems like a really cool place.

Mitchie said...

haha I'm like a detective LOL
Anyways I follow PriscillaW8 and I knew she bought one of the pairs on ebay and in the comments you said you wanted it but got outbidded.
And then I just kinda guessed.

I am so jealous of this party. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and that place looks amazing! Loving the dots and all of the frames. (This coming from the girl who tried to fail her eye tests in 2nd grade to get glasses cause I thought they were sweet). True story. Thankfully, I just got a new pair of Nicole Miller specs. Thanks for all of the great pics too!
