A Visit to l.a. Eyeworks

Ever since I purchased my first pair of prescription glasses my mom has been  telling me, “You change your shoes and shirts everyday, so why not change your glasses.” Having several pairs of glasses is definitely a luxury, but it’s also an investment that you won’t regret. While in Los Angeles this past weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph co-founder of l.a. Eyeworks, Gai Gherardi. I have been a long time fan of her fun and colorful frames and was delighted to meet her and her equally awesome partner Rhonda. Thank you to the l.a. Eyeworks team for my new gold Flying Wallendas. (They are definitely mom approved!)

New Frames from l.a. Eyeworks
  • love that printed jacket..


  • Definitely like the new frames – give you a very different look from the dark ones! Gai and her partner have such enviably funky style, especially in the shapes and proportions of their outfits. I'd like to incorporate pieces like that, especially the pants, into my wardrobe.

  • Hello Ari,

    I've been enjoying your blog and book so much. If you ever return to Stockholm again, there's a lady I'm sure you'd enjoy meeting. Her name is Maria LLerena, and she's been an international salsa queen since '66. She's still going strong in every way, she performs, travels, make new outfits and hats and learns new things every day. She's a true inspiration.

    Here's an image of her: http://static1.jetty.se/images_250/SK01_20120524132247.jpg

    Liked the B&W photo; puts their outfits into a whole new dimension. And Mom is right about the glasses: why not make them a fashion accessory? Elton John certainly did!
