I am thrilled to introduce you to a Rochester treasure and the hippest Optician on the planet - Dark Autumn, Tamra Asmuth, founder of One Hip Chic Optical. Tamra and I realized our shared  passion for color and art during her color analysis many years ago. Since then we have collaboratively helped our mutual clients to confidently wear eyeglasses that enhance their unique style, face shape and coloring.

Eyeglasses are the most important accessory choice and a crucial investment in a wardrobe that works. When referring clients to Tamra, I have complete confidence that she will assist them in finding frames that compliment and reinforce all they learned about creating their own personal color harmony during their color analysis consultation.

One Hip Chic offers an interesting selection of unique frames by designers from all over the world. Her local shop was recently named "America's Finest Optical Retailer" by Invision, a leading industry magazine.

I am regularly stopped and asked about the colorful frames I wear.  My current favorites are the these purple gems that Tamra helped me choose that match perfectly with my Light Summer colors, so different from her richer, warmer Dark Autumn colors.  Read on to learn the influence color analysis has had on Tamra's approach to her wearable art wardrobe and her unique business. 

As an optician and owner of an artful optical boutique, helping my customers choose the right frame is of utmost importance.  I take into account a person's face size and shape, their prescription and visual needs and, of course, their coloring. 

Many years ago, a beloved customer came to One Hip Chic Optical in search of a new pair of glasses. Out of her purse, she pulled a colorful swatch book.  She told me about her experience with Kerry and how it had really helped guide her decision-making with regard to clothing (and glasses).  I was intrigued.  Very intrigued.  And, so, I scheduled an appointment with Kerry to have my own colors done.

Through Kerry, my curiosity about color has deepened.  Since my own color analysis, I've had the pleasure of watching her perform nearly a dozen others on my family members, friends and customers. I learn something new each time.  Having each of Kerry's swatch books in my boutique really comes in handy when a customer tells me she's visited Indigo Tones and is a soft summer or a cool winter.  I am so grateful to Kerry for the knowledge she's shared with me.  It is truly invaluable for both my personal and professional life.

I love all the colors of my dark autumn palette (they soothe me).  I see the value of creating visual harmony and of wearing just the right vibrancy of my colors. Through my customers, I see the effect wearing the right colors has on their mood and their self-confidence. Every day, I hear stories about the compliments they receive. I like to think that by wearing our correct colors, we're making the world a more beautiful place.

It was a treat for me to do a "surprise" color analysis for Donald Green for his 50th birthday several years ago.  He was a good sport and went along for the ride and jumped enthusiastically into his Warm Autumn palette.  Donald is a Podologist and runs a specialized European foot care center. I was amazed at his professionalism and attention to detail on my first visit. He and I share a similar exacting approach to our systems and methods and I appreciate the care he gives each and every client. 

In the years since his color analysis he has incorporated his colors into his business branding and lifestyle.
