California Style featuring Capital Eyewear

SS 030113 CaliforniaCool FeaturingCapitalEyewear COVER 1

Have you noticed budget-friendly stores like Forever 21 are already in full-on festival  mode? Do they think the whole country is packing up their SUV’s and venturing to Coachella this year? Window displays are chock full of frayed denim shorts, billowy Bohemian tanks and crop tops galore.

I went to Coachella last year and while I won’t be making it to Indio, CA this April, we can all emulate the style of fashion-forward festival-goers this Spring. However, this year swap out the Ray Bans for my new favorite made-in-California wood-frame sunglasses by Capital Eyewear

Shade Spotlight ~ I first saw these shades by Capital Eyewear on a Bay Area news story by reporter @WayneFreedman in January. The founder of Capital, Steven, was featured showing how he started his business and taught himself how to make the wood frames. Each pair is made in SF and shipped free worldwide.  I was so impressed with his story, I emailed Steven to see if I could feature a pair. 5 days later, these shades arrived and I styled my sister in them at this lumber yard in Mendocino County.

About the Wood ~ Capital Eyewear only use American Hardwoods sourced from the USA and never use any wood from rainforests or endangered sources. They’re also very light and  treat all frames to bond natural fibers within the wood. This makes the frames much stronger than untreated wood could ever be.

Denim is ‘A California Classic’ ~ There’s something about the staying-power of light acid-washed denim. Try this light wash in cut-off shorts, boyfriend jeans or a chambray top that can easily be paired with colored denim.

Capital at Coachella ~ I’m loaning these to my brother at Coachella this year. Follow his instagram feed @Brochella for an insta-diary of the festival. These unisex shades on my sister above are made out of Walnut called the Bonnie/Clyde.

Accessorizing Safety ~ Each pair of sunglasses comes with a leather case that protects them from breaking, plus I love that the wood frames are easily paired with neutrals.
