Last night I had the pleasure of attending an event held by New Orleans based luxury sun-glass and optical brand Krewe, in collaboration with St Charles Avenue . A portion of the nights proceeds went towards the Krewe Foundation; a charity by the company that donates glasses and eye exams to New Orleans students in need.

I’m obsessed with Krewe’s shades and their boutique. I genuinely had a blast trying on different looks; the staff at Krewe were so fun and helpful. Upon entering the store we were offered a few drink options, I chose rosé and was delightfully informed that the Magazine Street location always has sparkling rosé on tap…yes, amazing!
I tried on almost every pair of frames in the store, but my favorite shades of the evening were the Octavia style pictured below. I usually gravitate to more timeless looks with my sunglasses, especially if they are expensive, so I can get more than one season of wear out of them; but I love the contemporary twist on old Hollywood these frames lend, they are fabulous.

And we like it that way. We use a small-batch, handcrafted process for our eyewear, for a difference you can see and feel.”
