Blake Mycoskie, who founded TOMS Shoes in 2006 right here in Santa Monica (where it is still currently headquartered), gave a brief speech and presented a video from a trip to Nepal.

Sunglasses...TOMS Eyewear! For each pair of sunglasses sold, TOMS will give a portion of the proceeds to help someone in need regain sight. There's a stripe on the sunglass arms that represent "you," the person you gave sight to, and TOMS.

TOMS Eyewear is priced from $135 - $145 with three basic models in a a variety of finishes and lenses; style 101: a wayfarer style, style 201: a oversized round / oval style, and style 301: an aviator style. I personally liked the aviator style best followed by the wayfarer style, although as I just bought a pair of Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses, I have to sadly hold off on new sunglasses for awhile. They were selling the sunglasses out of a repurposed food truck in the parking area, and will be selling them online and at Nordstroms and other retailers.
