Shades of PureModa

posted by Madi West April 29, 2015 1 Comment

Sunglasses are the must have accessory this winter season and if you kept up with the Coachella festival fashion recently you would have seen the brand Quay Eyeware.

Quay Eyeware is an Australian label taking the sunglass industry by storm with It-Girls Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Vanessa Hudgens and Shay Mitchell all rocking Quay shades in every style and colour.

So when PureModa got in touch, I was stoked to find Quay Eyeware among a collection of funky labels on their online store and couldn’t resist grabbing a pair. 

PureModa launched in 2013 and is already making a name for themselves by providing Australian shoppers (just like us!) the latest national and international brands and the current trends at affordable prices. If you want to stay fashion forward, check them out, add to cart and take full advantage of having a host fab brands all in the one spot. And there’s free shipping. And your purchase comes wrapped in black tissue paper with a branded ribbon and colourful flyers (#sahhcute).

Finally….these Quay Kitti Tort Shades are mine and I did decide to stick with the trends and get a pair of cat-eye sunglasses. They’re the perfect size and shape, and the tortoise shell frames are the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe when combined with black and grey hues.

Also if you are just like me and struggle to get out of bed on these chilled mornings, you finally have a pair of sunglasses big enough to hide your tired eyes yet still chic. Great for all occasions, from dressing up a casual look to adding a slice of everyday to your Sunday best, they are a must have staple this season (they’ll even make a good flatly prop!!). 

So next time you’re in the market for a spot of online shopping don’t forget to check out PureModa at http://puremoda.com.au.


We worked in collaboration with PureModa on this post however it is safe to say we’re in love, all opinions are our own and we will definitely be shopping with them again.

If you’ve been following along the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) fuss that’s currently taken over Sydney you might have noticed the Sunglass Hut campaign #SGHRunway.

The team at Sunglass Hut have hand picked the season’s most popular styles and set them up at Carriageworks in a purpose-built sushi train! Fashion influencers can drop in and borrow a style for the show they are attending in exchange for a social post tagging #SGHRunway.

For those of us missing fashion week this year, you can follow the fun on Instagram here.

And lucky for us there are plenty of Sunglass Hut stores in Brisbane so you can snap up a pair for yourself.

Find them in Brisbane here:

I love the pattern clashing of these two simple summer pieces from Country Road. Mixing up patterns is such an effective way to have that effortlessly chic style.
Mimco have taken a more casual approach this season and it’s really working for them. I’ve been wanting to see some changes at Mimco for years, looks like we might be getting something a little different finally! Keep it casual on these summer days and stay comfy and cool.

Optiko James Street

Optiko on James St New Farm isn’t your average opto chain. You won’t find your run-of-the-mill common brands that are mass produced for every optometrist in Australia. At Optiko every piece is one of a kind and hand crafted. Here, you will get your hands on labels such as Cutler & Gross, Oscar Magnusson, Cartier, Thom Browne and more.


When I told a couple of friends that I was going to write a post for Brisbane Threads about Optiko, they quickly piped up and told me about their experiences with the boutique optometrist. It’s evident that every staff member at the store has a real love and passion for what they do, who they serve and giving their customers they most personalised and satisfying service in Brisbane. You’re sure to get the royal treatment from the moment you enter until you’ve found your dream specs that stand out from the crowd.

 In preparation for my US trip the team at Optiko hooked me up with a new pair of specs and sunnies, both as unique as it gets! My pair of Oliver Peoples‘ clear framed glasses match everything and add a funky twist. I also got my hands on a pair of Ann et Valentin sunglasses, (who hail from Paris) are perfectly suited to the fashion-set.


Optiko don’t just specialise in unique and carefully crafted specs, you can get your eyes tested and cared for here too. All of the latest eye care technologies are practiced at Optiko. Included in your optical experience will be high-res digital retinal photography as well as your standard vision tests to make sure your peepers are in tip-top shape.

Optiko are definitely worth checking out if you’re after a unique experience and some specs that will stand out from the rest.

Bailey Nelson Launches on James Street

On Thursday the 30th October, Bondi-based glasses brand Bailey Nelson, set up a Summer soiree outside their store on James Street to officially launch the Bailey Nelson brand in Queensland.

After mountains of success and 7 stores throughout New South Wales and Victoria, Bailey Nelson have now set up two stores in Queensland, one in James St and one in Indooroopilly. They will soon to have one more in Brisbane’s main shopping hub, Queen St Mall. Bailey Nelson are becoming wildly famous for their stylish, quality glasses and sunglasses at completely affordable prices.

There were large colourful summer umbrellas towering over bright cushions and picnic rugs alongside relaxing poolside deck chairs. Along with the purple and red lighting covering the strip, you were made to feel as if you were sitting on a beach in the Whitsundays, watching the sunset. Not bad for a Thursday night!


The fruity cocktails, Asahi beer and refreshing apple Somersby cider also helped create the exotic holiday feel. Platters of breads and cheese’s with deli meats and antipasto treats from Gerard’s Bistro were laid out for guests to nibble on with their cold drinks. Dj Mumbles was keeping the chilled out vibe flowing with resort mixes throughout the night. It was clear to see everyone was feeling that relaxed beach summer vibe.

This blessed out summertime vibe is the core of the Bailey Nelson brand. You can see it in each and every pair of specs they sell. There’s a wide range of bright, playful frames that would look equally good in the boardroom or the beach.

Interactions with staff have that similar warmth of summer. These are friendly guys and gals who know just which pair of specs will make your face absolutely shine.

My eyes are pretty good but since the launch I’ve been making a serious effort to read small text in the dark as much as I can. After seeing the Bailey Nelson range I can’t just be limited to sunnies!
