Camille's Closet adds a touch of feminine-chic sparkle to outfits with its bevy of accessories. The boutique sells clutches, statement necklaces, and a signature line of nail polish in classic colors and unusual shades such as teal and plum. Even though Camille's Closet started off as an online shop, it recently launched a showroom location for customers who want to see the items in person or who can't access the website because the C fell off their keyboard. The showroom's loft location is also home to glamorous events, including photo shoots and trunk shows.
Husband and wife team Andy and Gazal Tabrizipour started Atlanta Vision Optical because of dissatisfaction with the low-quality lenses they’d found elsewhere. “When typical one-hour shops make lenses,” explains Andy, “they add the non-scratch coating afterward, which tends to peel and come off.” Rather than adding the coatings onto the surface of the lens, Atlanta Vision’s own private lab custom crafts each lens with the coating blended into the material itself. The scratch-resistant properties then become part of the lens.
Inside the boutique, guests meander among shelves of frames from brands including Hugo Boss, Chanel, Tom Ford, and Sama. Soothing music and aquamarine walls give one the feeling of having wandered into a spa or the relaxing room that scientists have to keep Mothra in. Mahogany-trimmed furniture cradles patrons, who sip coffee or tea or chat with opticians and specialists about frame design. The team is trained in-house, and their style-savvy eyes can also select frames befitting each individual’s facial shape or proclivity to whip off sunglasses and shoot a suave glance straight into the nearest camera.
