Phoenix Project Resale keeps women looking stunning with high-end resale clothes, shoes, and accessories by Ralph Lauren, Gap, and Ann Taylor, but its primary goal is to benefit the community at large. At least 20% of the profits from each Phoenix Project purchase are donated to local St. Louis charities and organizations––Haven House, Angels Arms, and Partners 4 Pets to name a few. Typical items include from blouses, pants, and designer dresses, all of which are laundered and pressed prior to sale. Examples from the store's inventory can be found in their Facebook gallery.
Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
