I am so excited that I got to attend Vision Expo again this year! 
{see my recap from last year HERE!}

It was here that I met Jamie and Stephanie from Vision Monday,
 which led to my recent INSIGHTS: Voices + Views interview

After Ruth's inspiring talk about customer service and building a successful business, 
we started our exploration of the show!

I was intrigued by the details in these glasses on display from JOOly:

Absolutely love the scalloped sides of these glasses! 

I loved these eyeglass/sunglass covers as 👀 from Any Di
they are so cute & functional! 

Ruth had a meeting with Barton Perreira so we headed up to see them!

I love the mustard glasses in this collection,
and the sunglasses are so glamours! 

I mean this is my personal heaven...

Barton Perreira is celebrating 10 years! 

& they gave us these tote bags, cleaning cloth and awesome double sided zip pouch! 

We stopped by the HENAU booth and I tried on these bright fun glasses! 

I also got to see some Traction Productions glasses in real life, 
I love a couple of their pairs on their Instagram like these metals:

I was so excited to see Faniel Eyewear!

 Still one of my all time favorite eyewear companies,
every pair makes my heart sing! 
Especially these gold leaf beauties in the top two pics:

& these sunglasses are AMAZING! 

Needless to say, I want them all! 

 Before I left the expo, 
I had to stop by Lafont and say hi to their Director of Marketing, Kristin,
meeting her last year was definitely a highlight 
I just love the visuals and branding of Lafont, it is all just so perfect! 

You know I had to try on all their leopard glasses! 

Kristin asked me if I own/wear sunnies and I said yes but that I don't have many, 
and she said it is time for some Lafont sunnies! 

I was between these two leopard beauties {obviously}

 & I finally decided on the BARONNE sunnies!
Unfortunately they were so popular at the show that they are on back order, 
but what a great problem to have! 
Can't wait to wear these beauties as soon as they become available! 

 I have been loving lots of Lafont on instagram these days, 
especially that leopard + black, red leopard + tan, and grey leopard + pink
and those red metals on the right!

 & I got a new Lafont tote! 
I absolutely love my one from last year and now I have a pair! 

I also wore one of my beloved leopard pairs of Lafont for Day 2 of Vision Expo East 2018!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Lafont, lips- Essence "Coral Craving", necklace- FIT Style Shop, top- Who What Wear x Target, tank {under} & pants- Anthropologie, loafers- Marc by Marc Jacobs {via Poshmark}

I also scored this external battery from a Luxottica stand, 
and was very excited about this freebee 
but it was quickly confiscated by the airport security in Beijing on the way to Thailand...

and all the awesome people and companies I have met on this journey!
