SPECTACULAR SHADES

Sonia Campbell and her late husband, Paul, retired in 1985. She’d been a model, and he, a dentist. “We were urged by a dear friend, an optometrist, to open Spectacular Shades on El Paseo,” she recalls. “It was a perfect fit. Twenty-nine years later, I’m still glad we took his advice.” Whether you’re looking for designer sunglasses or prescription lenses, Campbell’s got you covered.

BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY:
Old-fashioned, one-on-one customer service. We are lucky to have a loyal and very discerning clientele, most of whom have become longtime friends.

SIGNATURE LOOK:
That’s easy: casual, sophisticated elegance. That’s how my longtime stylist puts it! I am known for my glitzy tops and hairstyle.

RECENT INDULGENCE:
Besides spoiling my new granddaughter, Sophia, I enjoy gardening and reading. Sunday, my day of relaxation!

FAVORITE ITEM IN STORE:
That’s a difficult one. I pick out every treasure: the fabulous sunglasses; optical frames; jewelry; and the beautiful jewel-encrusted musical eggs, Fabergé style.

EL PASEO HANGOUTS:
Usually my friends and I spend Fridays or Saturdays on El Paseo for happy hour and dinner. Mamma Gina, il Corso, Mitch’s, Cuistot, Le Paon.
