It was a perfect evening here in NYC. There was a cool breeze and slight overcast with the sunshine slightly peeking through the clouds. We were perched high above the Lower East Side at Sixty LES. The venue, Tiki Tabu, made us feel as if we were right in the middle of a beach bar on the sands of Hawaii. Matt, Sebastian and I spent the evening trying on sunglasses, eating delicious food and sipping cold drinks. I was fortunate enough to be hosting the event along with Maui Jim! It was so much fun to learn more about what makes Maui Jim’s sunglasses so unique and share with our guests the different ways to style them. You know that saying, “Not all things are created equal”, it’s absolutely about sunglasses. There is so much more than meets the eye (no pun) when it’s time to choose your next set of awesome sunglasses. I wanted to share with you some of the qualities that makes Maui Jim so popular around the world and of course, the best ways to style them 🙂
For those of you who may not be familiar with Maui Jim, they make some of the most popular sunglasses in the world and were born right on the beaches of Maui! Not a bad place to originate! Maui is one of the lushest, most vibrant places on earth. Yet it’s intense sunlight creates conditions that hide the beauty of the island. I never took time to truly understand the importance of good lenses or what goes into making them. They have created what’s called, Polarized Plus2 Technology. It goes beyond shielding your eyes from from glare and harmful UV to reveal and enhance the world’s true vivid colors in detail. When you put a pair on and step outside, you know exactly what all this means 🙂 Take a peek at this awesome video that shares more detail on this one of a kind technology. If you are like me and wear prescription glasses, trying to find a suitable pair of prescription sunglasses can be painful. Through their Mauipassport lenses you never have to worry about your vision obscuring your view of the world around you. Combining your unique prescription and their Polarized Plus2 technology you will see the world like never before! See below for some of my favorites from the collection as well as some of their new arrivals. Happy Shopping!
