New Arrival 6: Tiffany & Co.

There's something about the sight of a Tiffany blue box that gets adults giggling like pre-adolescent school girls... and that's just our lab manager Rudy. (pictured above doing his best celebutard impression.- sorry our resident supermodel Kendall is relaxing at her vacation home and her stunt double Aubrey is on a cruise with relative strangers. So this is as pretty as the staff gets at the moment. At least he's not wearing a dress.)

As one of the only shops in the state carrying the Tiffany line (and the ONLY one in Baltimore City), we're proud to offer a wide assortment of both opthalmic frames and sunglasses (most with polarized lenses.) These frames are made in Italy from the finest materials, some with semi-precious and precious metals. Some even have actual Tiffany diamonds. (as opposed to non-actual Tiffany diamonds, like the ones on E-bay)

All of the designs are inspired by the Tiffany & Co. jewelry designs and are both tasteful and unique. The acetates a…

New Arrival 5: Bevel

Arriving late Friday and flying out the door by Saturday are designs from American design house Bevel (Actually one of the guys is a Brit but he lives in New York so close enough). Great colors + silly names + cool shapes = Bevel. Yes I said silly names, where have you seen frames with the names "tuchas", "gobsmacker" or "wojumacallit" in such colors as "citrus wood", "red stripe" (hooray beer!), or "mahogany silk" before? Cool hand polished acetates (rumored to be done by near extinct Japanese craftsmen), milled titanium, and their newest creation "beta-plast" make this a collection with something for everyone. The beta-plast are an exclusive design featuring extremely lightweight titanium core frames covered in the hand-polished acetate giving the wearer the bold look of zyl frames with the light weight durability of titanium. Extremely fashionable and super comfortable, the initial feedback has been very positive…

Spexual Chocolate & FREE kisses

It's that time again...time for everyones' favorite made up holiday. No, not Ground Hogs day. No, not the Chinese New Year.(I know the chinese new year isn't made up, but I'm making a point here. Don't send Yao Ming over to kick my backside.) It's time for the staff here at Paris West to break out all of our red and pink frames and to give out FREE kisses.

For the entire month of February we're celebrating Anne et Valentin day. (Red frame pictured above- hot new arrivals from France, now in stock). Similar to Valentines day we'll be giving out free kisses (Hersheys- milk, dark and white chocolate) and facilitiating feelings of love and affection. (directed to eyewear of course). It's the only month of the year where you can pry a kiss out of us. Unless you're a plush stuffed animal, then you can get kisses from Kendall 24/7. In any event, from now til the 29th of February (leap year baby), if you stop in you can help yourself to a kiss or 2 - no …
