St. Louis natives that go off and do their own successful thang make me smile, especially because we Midwesterners often return to show love to the homeland. Neil Bardon is no exception, and he'll be in town this weekend to debut The Florissant Collection from his Los Angeles-based brand, Saint Rita Parlor. If you've been reading along with me since the inception of this lil' blog, you might recognize these names! Bardon was last in town for a trunk show almost exactly two years ago! You can find my recap of the last trunk show here.
In the above left photo, you not only get to see a great flashback of me with long hair, but also me attempting to wear the top-selling frame "1072." I have a tiny face - look how oversized they are on me! This frame is currently only available in black on the website, but never fear! if you're attending the trunk show this Saturday, you'll be able to peep three brand new colors of the "1072." They go on sale for the first time publicly at the trunk show, so you better hurry your fashionable four-eyed self to the show.
I know I'm excited to see the new collection, and throw my name into the contest to possibly win my own pair of Saint Rita Parlor frames! With free 4Hands beer from 7-9m, and a peach-infused bourbon cocktail for just $6, you know I'm about to turn out and turn up. See you there!
