I’m turning 22 years old December 2nd, hooray! Therefore my dear friends arranged a surprise party for me last Saturday, with the best theme ever: Eyewear!

They sure know my big passion for eyewear by now. Here follows some of the pictures taken during the night, all with the hashtag #babba22 on instagram. What an amazing party!

Hello my dear!

When I visited Amsterdam I discovered the prestigious optician Schmidts Optics at Rokin 72, 1012 KW in Amsterdam. The atmosphere is classical luxurious and has been looking almost the same since the establishment in 1866. A eminent old school optician offering prominent brands and classic optical items such as a wide range of monocle’s.

On the Street… Amsterdam, from Japan

When I was in Amsterdam I ran into this cute Japanese boy from Tokyo! I was so amazed about his colorful vintage/street style, perfectly matched together with a vintage frame. When I say frame this time I really mean just a frame. No prescription or window lenses on. Just a cool frame as a great accessory!

Apparently this is a huge trend in Japan I’ve heard, is it true? Does anyone know where it stems from? So interesting! Hope to see more of it in Europe soon.
