Halloween fun at the Haunted House

With Halloween coming up tomorrow, haunted houses come to mind. Nightmares Fear Factory in Niagara Falls, Canada, has been known for scaring patrons silly! Everyone from The Huffington Post to Good Morning America and The Tonight Show has caught on to their haunts. These wide open eyes carry so much fear, we couldn't help playing around with some of our favorite sunnies to cool things down... even if only for a second!

Announcing the sophomore line of the Selima for June Ambrose collection!

Few in the world of fashion are as passionate and well revered for what they do as June Ambrose. The celebrity stylist is known for her spots on HSN, Project Runway, The X Factor, The View, The Today Show, and as guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She has crafted looks for fashionable icons like Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, Diddy, Jay Z, & Will Smith. Most notably, she gained her own VH1 television show, “Styled By June” in 2012.

Since being involved in fashion styling in the early 90s, June Ambrose has become an icon in her own right, setting trends globally. Her enthusiastic and candid approach toward style has developed a massive following of admirers, always coming back for more.
As collaborators with June of yesteryear, Selima Optique is no different. We had to come back for more.

We’re honored to present the second line of the Selima for June Ambrose collection.

Retro style is fused with futurism in the Edna, an oblong frame shape with square lenses, referencing a bold style from the mid-90s Selima Optique Collection. The Enda is available in a subtle blue crystal, graphic blonde horn, and solid black.

Round shaped frames have maintained a chic fashion statement, and June Ambrose sets the standard. A reissued style from the mid-90s Selima Optique Collection, the new Dora is available in Tokyo tortoise, taupe crystal, and black.

The Missy will have you standing out and turning heads from SoHo to the South of France with its ‘super-cat eye’ shape, another reissued style from the 90s, re-envisioned by Selima & June. Missy comes in Tokyo tortoise, black, and blue floral.

The Monte Carlo, a redesign of our Dre frame, comes in an assortment of two-tone colors, black/matte silver, green/lime, orange/black, and blue/red, matching your every look with this classic aviator style.

The Daphne is a bold double-bridged design adorned with innovative, contrasting temple colors. Daphne is available in black/coral, emerald/tortoise, and crystal grey/black.

The new Selima for June Ambrose collection is now available at Selima Optique stores, online, and select retailers worldwide.
