As Hi-Tech Chic continues to grow we have had more people asking us to review or use their products during different technology events. This year for SXSW and SV Comic Con Flashion Statement and Aspire Eyewear sent me over some great gear to test 0ut!
Aspire Eyewear sent me 4 pairs of sunglasses for me to test out while at SXSW and SV Comic Con. I had never heard of this brand before and was curious on how they differ from other brands. Aspire Eyewear glasses and sunglasses are 50 percent lighter than a typical plastic frame, 50 percent thinner than a typical plastic frame and 22 percent lighter than a typical titanium frame. Aspire Eyewear is created with SDN-4 (a nylon material proprietary to the brand) and 3D technology (reducing prototype development from 20 weeks to 60 minutes in most cases).
When I received and un-boxed the sunglasses I noticed how light they were immediately, in fact everyone that has had them on say the same thing. Since it was just me on ground zero for both events but 4 pair of sunglasses I decide to play a little game “Who will take a picture with me in the dark with Aspire Eyewear Sunglasses. If you can’t tell by the picture it wasn’t hard to get people to take a selfie with me. Throughout both SXSW and SV Comic Con I wore the Aspire Eyewear sunglasses and have fallen in love with this brand. If your interested in this brand or would like to purchase a pair click here.
My other cool schwag I received was 2 LED T-shirts from Flashion Statement with lips and a heart that lights up at the sound of music. The Flashion Statement T-shirt lights up by using a small, discrete battery pack to illuminate the heart design. The battery pack is attaches to a cord that connects to the LED design located on your chest. I does take 2 AAA batteries that are not included with the product. The Flashion Statement ladies t-shirt it’s self is very fitted but so comfortable you can’t tell you have a battery pack attached to it. The LED light attract allot of attention which I think is great to use while promoting a product or company.
During my journey to both SXSW and SV Comic Con I asked random strangers to take a selfie with me in my Flashion Statement T-Shirt. There was no shortage of people wanting to do a selfie and I even got a robot pose with me (though he was getting a little frisky)! That was fun at first it got boring real quick so I need something more bold and funny. I started asking random strangers sing to my chest so they could see the Flashion Statement T-shirt light up. One guy took it to the next level (see youtube below) and silenced the entire SV Comic Con showroom for a second. Even more hilarious the guy in the video asked his girlfriend first if he could sing into my boobs and she said YES, classic moment at SV Comic Con.
A huge thank you to Flashion Statement and Aspire Eyewear for providing me with these awesome products. It not only promoted both our sites but I it made me look like a cool geek at SXSW and SV Comic Con. What more could a girl ask for?
