TOT; THE OPTIQUE OF TOMORROW Hang on minute! Just let me get over my crush for my newest pair of Glossi sunglasses. Sometime last week while I was back in Singapore for a day between my Malaysia roadtrips, boyfriend and I were privileged to attend the media launch of a new eyewear concept store by Nanyang Optical business called The Optique of Tomorrow (T.O.T.) at JEM. The concept of T.O.T. is that they bring in designer eyewear brands and provide professional optometry consultation all within the store itself. I was floored when we got the chance to know more about each brand of designer eyewear that they carry, that it felt like I was getting to know little personalities instead of glasses.
The sunglasses which I'm wearing is from Glossi and they are amazingly lightweight but very durable. I could easily spot sunglasses from Glossi in the store because most of their shades have a signature splash of colors on the frame front (mine's at the back!). Very eye-catching. At the party the awesome people from T.O.T. had also let each of us select a pair of Glossi eyewear as a gift, and I must admit it was a little hard. There were so many different frames and sizes, and what's tricky about choosing sunglasses is that they depends a lot on your facial features - such as your face shape, cheekbones and nose bridge.
Thank god boyfriend's family used to be in the eyewear business and he was my trusty adviser. Seriously, I wanted to try on every pair in the store. I was like "ah this is cute.." "this has checkered details!.." "this looks nice too.." So anyway, the lovely staff at T.O.T. had also helped provided me some recommendations and together we decided on this pair Glossi sunglasses. The frame has stripes details and being transparent makes it so versatile to go with any color I'm wearing - most importantly the size is perfect for me. Can't believe I used to wear so many unflattering sunglasses in the past!
