Yes, people really do win those giveaway contests.
Just ask Jamie Henderson of Detroit, who scored herself a pair of super-lux Special Edition Badgley Mischka “Boyd” suns with 18K white gold lenses from Urban Optiques as part of September’s 944 Detroit Swag giveway.
Check out some pics we snapped of Jamie in her new shades. Love ‘em on you Jamie! Congrats!
In celebration of the Fall fashion season, 944 Detroit and Urban Optiques are giving away another fab pair of couture sunglasses: This time a pair of Special Edition Badgley Mischka Boyd acetate aviators with 18K white gold couture lenses valued at $780 dollars.
A unisex sunglass, the Boyd has been spotted on everyone from Brad Pitt to singer Kelly Rowland to models Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio. While the Boyd is celeb favorite, no one has yet been seen in the Special Edition version of the Boyd we are giving away this month. So if you win the Boyd, you’ll be setting the trend here.
Entering for a chance to win these lux sunglasses from Badgley Mischka Eyewear, Urban Optiques and 944 Detroit is easy: Just click over to the 944 Detroit Swag page and fill out the short registration form (it’s only a couple of fields.) Not only will you be entered in the sunglass giveaway, but you’ll also have a chance at winning a print by emerging local artist Mark Sarmel.
Today’s look, which again features the Loree Rodkin Hunter Special Edition sunglasses, is the perfect example.
The first words that usually come out of people’s mouths when they see the Loree Rodkin Eyewear Collection is “edgy” or “gothic.” And it’s true: Loree’s distinct style of jewelry and eyewear design is rife with daggers, skulls, serpentine embellishments and crosses.
So you might be tempted to think the only way to wear her jewelry or eyewear is with a pair of leather pants and stilettos.
But as many of Loree Rodkin’s devotees will attest, her designs are combined with formal wear all of the time. Watch the red carpet at any Hollywood or major fashion event, and you’ll likely see at least one luminary wearing Loree’s jewelry alongside their couture dress. A quick glance at Loree Rodkin’s press book will settle any lingering doubts you might have.
As we mentioned earlier in the week, Urban Optiques has partnered with 944 Detroit Magazine to give away a pair of fab Loree Rodkin eyeCouture Special Edition “Hunter” Sunglasses with 18K white gold lenses as part of 944’s new “Detroit Swag” feature.
I won’t go into all the reasons that these are amazing sunglasses worth every cent of their $1,200 price tag (okay, I will: They have genuine hand-cut calfskin leather inserts, 18K gold couture lenses and, of course, the jewelry-grade sterling silver Loree Rodkin signature skulls at the temples.)
The real question on everyone’s mind is how do I wear them?
So to provide some inspiration, we’re putting together five looks this month ranging from mild, to a little bit wild — to completely wild — to show you how easy it is to accessorize these super-lux aviators.
This is a unisex frame, so be patient men … we’ll provide some looks for you also. But today we’re going to start with a cool, urban look that combines the Special Edition Loree Rodkin Hunter with a pair of Alice + Olivia seamed biker pants, Brooke Western Snake Tee, and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti pumps.
We also tossed in some great accessories that play off from the leather, sterling silver and platinum finish on the Hunter sunglasses, including a vintage Chanel ring, Sonora Leather bracelet and dog-tag style monogrammed charm from Helen Ficalora (you can customize it with your initial.)
All of the elements of the ensemble (minus the Loree Rodkin sunglasses) are available at Shopbop.com.
