Selective Eyewear Elements

Any self-respecting fashionista knows that accessories make the outfit, from your bag to your shoes to your belt and even your glasses. But these must-have items are not generally available to the majority of the buying public, thanks to their sky-high price tags and cultivated exclusivity. Selective Eyewear Elements (SEE) refutes this system; its optical boutiques offer cool, modern eyewear from the top European design houses, all at affordable prices. You can find both eye glasses and sunglasses. She will be impressed!


For million dollar looks without the pricetag, in Los Angeles, you can find SEE Eyewear in the Beverly Center or order online at http://www.seeeyewear/
