My first collaboration with ROYAL GIRL sunglasses happened shortly after I started posting for Sojosvision. They found my page through my previous ads and offered me a spot on their amazon pages to model their newest styles. They sell sunglasses through the brand Royal Girl and WOWSUN.
They sent me 7 pairs of their premium sunglasses along with an excel breakdown of how many photos they wanted me to post to my page. The content outline was pretty free so I was excited to put my own artistic spin on the photos. I decided to branch out of my comfort zone and collaborate with a photographer (Brian Edsall) I’d been chatting with on instagram. We had a similar style so I figured we could help each-others pages grow by working together to create some sunglass shots. Since this shoot atheistic was pretty open in terms of location and style I told Brian to meet me on my roof. (which turned out amazing btw!!) It had a rusty, urban feel and I knew if i wore bright colors with the glasses the photos would truly POP!
The temperature was about 50 degrees this day so I made sure I was organized and ready for each look. I like to pull stuff from my own closet as I tend to have an over the top style anyways! This shoot took about 4 hours and we ended up getting some really cool and unique shots. Brian works quick behind the camera. We took about 25-40 photos of each look and I’m talking in about 12 minutes flat!! As he snaps away you can see his creative wheels turning as he is making sure to capture the urban setting but feature the glasses at the same time. His calm demeanor really put me at ease in front of the camera which made the shoot so enjoyable and fly by! Collaborating with Brian was a blessing in disguise, as we really hit it off and have been working together on a few more shoots ever since!

The Royal Girl / WOWsun Sunglasses come in really fun colors and super interesting shapes. They master the oval / round style sunnies and also sell really small trendy pairs as well. The Black/ Red candy vintage glasses are my absolute favorite! They come in fun bright colors and are extremely well-made. The entire frame is made of LIGHT-WEIGHT plastic and feel so comfortable on your face. They come in a super light case as well easy for storing and since they are so small they fit perfect into any purse! They are the perfect brunch pair as they blocks glares ( and haters) are small, trendy and go with a casual or a dressy look!
All WowSun and Royal Girl glasses range between $9.99 and $16.99. Look good for cheap!
