Mimosas or screwdrivers? Why not both? It's Tuesday and we're sippin' on "orange juice," scarfing breakfast burritos, and rockin' Otis sunglasses...indoors. It's also our 19th birthday. So why the heck not?
As a birthday gift to the crew, each SportRx-er got to pick out a fresh new pair of Otis sunglasses. Here’s what the eyewear fanatics in the building chose from the Otis Collection:
Sarah – Sports Optician & Hula Extraordinaire
"My pick was the Mona: She’s a lovely gal with a super-fun cat-eye shape that works well with my not-so-prominent nose bridge (thanks, Dad!)… I’m going with Matte Black - a personal favorite in all frames - with Otis’s awesome Cool Grey mineral glass lenses."
Z Girl – Web Ninja wit' a Gangsta Lean
“I picked the Otis Modern Theory because it’s a solid frame (thanks to that beautiful Italian acetate) with some dope ass glass lenses. ‘Nuff said.”
Rob – Vice President & Supporter of Caffeinated Beverages
"I chose the Young Blood for two reasons: First, I love the name! Second, the Young Blood is one of the largest frames Otis makes and I have a big head. I also love the sleek design and the fact that the style is very fashionable. I have lots of glasses but many of them are too sporty for when I actually have to wear a collared shirt. I went with black and am excited to have a set of glass lenses that are super durable and I don’t have to worry about scratching."
Stephanie – Alligator-Shoe-Wearing Marketing Team & Carbohydrate Enthusiast
"I chose the Otis Skinny Dip because...well, for 1) it’s called the Skinny Dip, and 2) it’s huuuuuuge. I. LOVE. BIG. GLASSES. I don’t usually rock the cat eye but dag nabbit I am now! I feel super Hollywood wearing these oversized fashion frames, and the black-to-tortoise gradient styling really sets off the whole look."
Carlos a.k.a. Jalapeño – Chief Financial Officer & Surprisingly Good Frank Sinatra Impersonator
"Let me tell you about Last Night…ha! This frame puts a smile on my face just like remembering a great Last Night story. You know what I’m talkin' about...I know you do. I didn’t choose the frame Last Night – Last Night chose me. The Woodland Matte finish frame is versatile enough to class up a workday or put a laid-back SoCal vibe into your weekend. It also has an extremely comfortable fit, feel, and weight on my nose and ears. I was pretty stoked to get a pair of Otis sunnies because now, I finally have some clean glass in my sunglasses. So how was your Last Night?"
Anna a.k.a. Pons Solo – Sports Optician & Lobbyist for Office Pets
"I picked Otis Missing Pieces sunglasses in Coffee Tortoise. I really like this Otis frame because it seems like a casual staple yet it shows off a classic elegance so you can really dress it up when the time comes. Missing Pieces is a medium-sized frame with rich tortoise color throughout. The craftsmanship and quality of these Otis sunglasses remind me that this amazing birthday gift is something to treasure. I can’t wait for summer to get here! (Although, we do live in sunny San Diego, so…)"
Erica – SportRx Super Marketeer / Mathematician in Another Lifetime
"Since I found out SportRx was going to carry Otis sunglasses, I have been itching to get a pair of shades. I love how sturdy and durable Otis frames feel. They feel indestructible. I had a hard time deciding between the Heatwave and the Mona, but in the end, the Heatwave won my heart in that velvet wood black color. I also must have polled everyone in the office which ones I should pick. I don't usually like how a cat-eye design looks on my face, but Otis did something to it that adds a twist to the traditional feminine cat-eye design."
Tim a.k.a. Timbo SLICE – Sports Optician & Curly-Haired Wonder
"I chose The Beat because I be rockin' it."
Frankie a.k.a. SAUCE – Sports Optician & Master of Sports Book Strategy
"I chose the Otis Louie because SAUCE! Hallelujah...Hallelujah..."
Nicole – SportRx Super Marketeer & O.C. O.G.
"I chose the Otis Skinny Dip because I love that cat-eye flair and that style fits my face well. I'm super excited about the half-black half-tortoise frame because it's unique and fun but still pretty simple. I was so excited about getting a pair of Otis frames, especially the Skinny Dip because I've had my eye on this frame since I've been working at SportRx. Love those mineral glasses lenses, too!"
