The Ray-Ban Wayfarer style, above all others, is an American style that has endured. The look is decisively youthful with just the right amount of casualness that denotes fun. Though the aviator style was built for function, it has the added component of ruggedness. Wayfarers are all about attitude, so wearing them with nothing more than a pair of white jeans and a white V-neck tee in the summer will suffice it. That’s the beauty of a well-designed item — it does all the work for you.
SUMMER….IS….HERE….Well the sunshine is at least. I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of squinting my eyes when I’m out during the day. Which means, it’s sunglass shopping time!
Aptly called Bless, this pair of frames by Linda Farrow sanctify any person who wears them. They are the epitome of confidence, style, and straight up swag. These frames may not be for everyone, but those who are bold enough to dawn a pair will not regret their decision. Come by Gafas today to try on the Bless yourselves!

We had a blast with our friends and clients last night for The Summer Pop-Up Shop here @ Gafas. And how could we have not? We were surrounded by people we care about, listening to good tunes courtesy of Katiya’s IPod, sippin’ Vitamin Water courtesy of the company who were kind enough to sponsor the event, and supporting up-and-coming local designers.
Everyone was going wild for the high-end, earthy jewellery line from Designs By Katiya…
…and the wonderful ready-to-wear head gear collection from Banoo By MeSa…
We were super excited to be the venue for Banoo’s first public appearence. Stay tuned for their launch… it’s going to be a must-attend event!
And our clients, both old and new were super excited about our 25% Off Sale. As many of you know, we only do sales on Boxing Day so getting an opportunity like this is monumental. We are very happy for everyone we fitted, and don’t be sad. If you still want a bit of a savings you can “like” our Facebook page and get $25 off your next purchase!

The countdown has ended…our Summer Pop-Up Shop (sponsored by Vitamin Water) is tonight from 6 – 11 pm. We will be partnering up with Designs By Katiya and Banoo By MeSa. The 25% applies to regular priced merchandise from Gafas and is only available for sales made during the pop-up shop’s hours!
It’s July which means the temperatures have been soaring and the beach is becoming our favorite place again! In honor of the best part of the year in frigid Canada, we’re bringing you the hottest trends in swimwear complete with our favorite shades. The fierce trend rocks the blog today…
It is completely unnecessary to have a hood on your swimsuit….which is why we think you should! Instead of wearing a hat and getting hat head, you could just pull up the hood to protect your scalp from the harsh sun. Other uses for the hood: coyly hiding behind it’s shroud, covering up the fact that you just got algae caught in your hair, lookin’ cool, and transitioning this swimsuit into a body suit (with bottoms of some sort of course … please wear pants) on your way to wherever after the beach! Thank you American Apparel for making this most awesome and ridiculous swimsuit!
To carry on with that uber-cool and tough vibe (we are taking this look to the dark side) we are flipping for the Alexander Wang Kirsten tote bag which carries on with the unnecessary-but-awesome theme with all the straps (get at Jonathan and Olivia on Ossington). Seeing as we’re going for over-the-top, heels are most definitely vital to look even more impractical on the boardwalk. The higher the heel, the closer to perfection and these Camilla Skovgaard Hammer Stilletos (available at Holt Renfrew) might just take you a bit past that. With all the great pieces that make up this killer outfit, go minimal with the jewellery (after all, it IS the beach) and snag this Speech Jewellery bolt necklace at Carte Blanche.
