Ever wonder how we became Coco and Breezy, and not Breezy and Coco? Ever since we were young girls, Coco would always stand on the left, and Breezy would always be posted on the right.⠀ ⠀ Here we're pictured twinning in our @cocoandbreezyeyewear [AMAZONIAN] styles. Coco is wearing the 101 style and Breezy is wearing the 104 style.⠀ ⠀ 🤘🏾Available on www.cocoandbreezy.com. Split your payments into four using @Klarna at checkout! 📷: @denzelgolatt | MUA: @neonfix ⠀
Living your best life isn't just about living, it's about being present too✨ The past few weeks (and upcoming ones) have been jam-packed for us. But we're making it work and appreciating every moment of the process because we know it's worth it. The important part about being a creative who has multiple outlets is creating a great team and learning how to delegate. I remember when I used to be a micromanager. That is not cute and things don't get done if you do that. You have to understand your vision and put trust in your team of experts who will help you create the finished product. How has your summer been? Let us know in three words, we want to chat with y'all 👇🏾
Familiarizing ourselves with the culture of any city we visit is a must. Our day usually goes like this— a business meeting in the morning and afternoon, working virtually with our team from our hotel room, catching up with old friends, and if time permits, exploring the vibrant city. Already this year Coco and I have explored some of the most some cool places, including France, London, LA, Miami, and even the Chi and more! When we’re doing so, we move in sync with the ultimate eye protection to block harmful light. Oh, and the best part has to be that @Transitionslenses latest GEN 8 darkens quicker and fades to clear faster than ever. #LightUnderControl
Our [PEYTON 101] places the ‘fun’ in funky while bringing forth soft notes of jazz. The vibrancy of our Goddaughter in Minnesota, PEYTON was the primary inspiration for the design. A notched strip of gold metal at the temple and the temple tips thematically pull the details together. If you love a good time without the hassle, these muted hazel frames are ones to celebrate with. 📸: @lewiswinkle ————————————————— @cocoandbreezyeyewear is available at a store near you and on cocoandbreezy.com ✨
In case you missed it, our [MOXI 104] [ZEN 103] and #BusinessWoman t-shirt are currently featured in Man Repeller x Klarna’s dream-like closet. The immersive pop up shop features a wardrobe curated by @manrepeller. MOXI’s bits of buttery blonde and drops of bourbon brown are what make it an eminent style and perfect to move about town in. ZEN 103 gives you a vivid lens on life while staying golden. Not to mention, every item in the shop can be purchased with @klarna!

Vacationed in New York without actually leaving— spent our Thursday spinning poolside in style at Staycation by Tommy Hilfiger’s summer oasis. At times we both love to mix our sets, at others we match ‘em. We made our @KITH x @TommyHilfiger satin blouses look fab with silk and leather bottoms. Coco is wearing PRAM and Breezy is wearing MOXI. Oh, and we even had an epic dance sesh to “Differences” with the cutest little girl! #tommypartner

Breezy in our dressing room at @wonderamatv — I can’t believe that we are already on season 4. For those who don’t know, we are co-host and Dj’s alongside @davidosmond . We shoot 20 episodes in 2 weeks, so we have made our dressing room into our @cocoandbreezyeyewear office, haha. We have put systems in place so that we are able to work virtually without physically being in the office with our team. Side note: It’s Leo Season and we are hype. Our birthday is Aug 4th 😆😆.
⚡️Did you follow @cocoandbreezyeyewear yet?⚡️ Coco is wearing our sunglasses in the [ZEN] style. All of our sunglasses are carefully designed in-house and we are vertically integrated. We get a lot of questions about our process. You can learn more at @cocoandbreezyeyewear.
💕Done and Done💕
#throwback ✨What would you tell your younger self? ✨ Here we look like the same people. We even used to share a cellphone until we were 19 years old. When we first started shipping out orders, we had to travel to the post office together. We were inseparable. In order to grow as entrepreneurs and creatives we had to find who we were as individuals. We also took a lot of time to figure out our own personal strengths. If you are a twin or multiple—I’m sure you feel us. I would tell my younger self not to let what people thought of us determine our mood and self growth. ✨ This is a throwback photo of baby C&B. Photo: @stylelikeu ————————————————— These @cocoandbreezyeyewear sunglasses are some of our first produced glasses. Thank you @kiddesign for your support in the beginning. You are such a talented creative!
I remember those days when we lived in Bushwick and we couldn’t afford a full length mirror, we had to check out our outfits like this. In this photo, there are two confident women who have glowed up. The glow up was our confidence. I feel like in the last year we have had a crazy mind shift and that has helped us embrace our confidence. Swipe over to the right —- In that photo, we had no problem being individualist but we were very insecure. I want to take the time to share this with you all because from the outside and our risk taking moves, it was hard to recognize that. Today, I am proud to own our confidence. Let’s get it!!! #planetcb
Did you know it’s Leo Season? 🦁August 4th🦁 If you are wondering. No we don’t have any plans yet. Should we make some? Now that I have your attention—when is the last time you got an eye exam? 🤓 #repost @sanctuarywrld
Last time we were in Chicago we DJ’d a really cool party during the winter and it was cold so didn’t get a chance to enjoy the city! This time around, we had the chance to see the city through an entirely new lens💫 @Transitionslenses partnered with @Refinery29’s immersive creative x cultural experience, #29Rooms to launch their latest GEN 8 lens! GEN 8 lenses are truly the future of optical. When I first tried them on, I was seriously tripped out on how quick my lenses went dark when I stepped outside. It happened immediately. Their room was interactive and all about light, decorated with reflective mirrors and funky geometrical shapes. This new lens includes light intelligent technology that is incredibly responsive to light and dark conditions— in other words, the lenses darken and brighten quicker than any of their previous products. (I know you all are excited to hear that!) These new lenses filter out all harmful rays to protect your natural sleep rhythm 👁 As I like to say -- look cool while taking care of your eye health #LightUnderControl
We are excited about our limited edition capsule collection of aviators with @thehelmco. 😘I love how it started with us meeting the CEO of The Helm @lindseytaylorwood at a @worn.nyc women’s dinner—then it turned into us being friends—now we’ve created a product together! The Helm focuses on female founded companies, and the full production team for the campaign photoshoot were all women.

We could not be more elated to introduce our limited-edition capsule collection with @thehelmco! Wanting to pay homage to our personal story and a variety of trailblazing women visionaries, our [DREAMER] frame took flight. Before we were anything, we were dreamers. They symbolize the importance of being bold and thinking forward beyond limitations. The design is our modern take on the classic aviator frame. The Helm is committed to investing in women and every dollar you spend with them, helps support female founded companies, like us! No matter who you are, or where you come from, we invite you to dream and invest with us. They are available on pre-order exclusively on thehelm.co for an early September delivery✨ Coco is wearing ‘Rose Gold and Marble’ while Breezy is wearing ‘Gold and Tortoise’. . . . .

Our retreat The Lorca ( @thelorca) is set on acreage near a mountain stream, a meadow, and a forest. We can't wait to host long-table outdoor dinners. We've equipped our first space with San Rafael Safari Chairs in sumptuous vegetable-table leather from The Citizenry (@the_citizenry), softening the look and feel with lush throw blankets from Brooklinen ( @brooklinen) can also be found throughout our bed and bath, right down to the candles. Follow us at @thelorca and DM if you'd like to escape the city.
We've handpicked our favorite home and wellness brands to make The Lorca ( @thelorca) special. All of our tables are set with beautiful Portuguese ceramics, cutlery, and glassware from Year & Day ( @yearandday). Swipe to take a look! The quality is exceptional and the colors are dreamy--the whites, grays, and blush pinks of the skyline. We're excited to host you at our tables. Follow us at @thelorca and DM if you'd like to escape into nature.

BTS of when I walked in set for the Summersalt shoot! @bretlemke asked “can I shoot you standing on that platform.” If you can’t tell—I was scared out of my mind standing in this platform. We got the shot tho 🤷🏾♀️✨
✨Should we drop the [Peyton] sunglasses with yellow lenses? ✨We had these custom lenses made for an event where people were able to customize their @cocoandbreezyeyewear sunglasses, but you all have been asking for them. Our friends @seeingisbelievingoptical custom made these yellow lenses for us.
The look you give when you are casually minding your business. Half of the time, I am actually not minding my own business because I love to ear hustle. Whenever I hear people talking about music or things that can be improved with eyewear — I am instantly taking mental notes. Speaking of these subject, I would love to hear from y’all. 🎶What is your favorite song? I am talking about that song that makes you feel a certain way? 🕶 What would you like to see improve in eyewear?

This is my business attire---what's yours?❤ Here I am walking to our Manhattan office wearing @cocoandbreezyeyewear sunglasses named after our middle school best friend, Sharita. All of our eyewear is thoughtfully named after people and experiences from our lives.
✨We are excited to show you all more behind the scenes of @cocoandbreezyeyewear. We go from turning up on stage to building the business of our dreams. I know you all see a lot of glitz and glam, but we know it’s our duty to show you how we do it. We want to show you how we are redefining what a businesswoman is. This is us in our office reviewing new shipping box and business card designs. BTW—your feedback counts. We listen to every word.✨
Over the weekend, we DJ’d in Times Square for the Official World Pride Closing Ceremony wearing @cocoandbreezyeyewear. Yass, mutha effin’ Times Square. The same stage that the greats like Lady Gaga and Beyonce have performed on in the past. This was at the end of our set and over 10,000 people screamed “Coco and Breezy.” Oh yea, swipe over for a kiki. Haha, we had “security” escorting us to the stage. I felt fab for those few mins - even though I don’t think we need security yet. Haha. FYI, we have been in the studio working on more music for y’all! Stay tuned for our up coming dates. We have more shows / parties coming up. We genuinely love all of y’all and we appreciate the support! It means the world. 😱😪🙏🏾❤️😎 Coco is wearing our “Sharita” sunglasses. 😎Breezy is wearing our “Peyton” sunglasses with custom yellow lenses. #pride

SHOW ME LOVE ⚡ Today we are DJing the Official Closing Ceremony WorldPride 2019. Catch us in Times Square. ✨Having the chance to meet @aliciakeys before her Stonewall show was incredibly priceless. This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising and we are thankful for the energy, commemorative celebrations and community coming together to create and sustain spaces. #pride #stonewall ————————————————————————⠀ ✨Coco wore our “Sharita” style sunglasses and Breezy wore a customized version of our “Peyton” style sunglasses.
Happy Sunday babes🔥 Make sure you follow our new page @cocoandbreezyeyewear. Our current page is still dedicated to eyewear—but this new page will be devoted to sharing eye care tips, showing our products consistently, behind the scenes of our eyewear design and more. I was just talking to our friend @b_hunter_ on how we’ve had our eyewear company for almost 10 years, made our stamp into the eyewear industry about 4 years ago, but we’ve been building a brand for over 14 years and it all started on MYSPACE. We are unicorns and we know that. Actually, we used to say that we lived in year 2020 on Planet C&B. Now on this page, you will see more music, our eyewear styled into our every day lifestyles, product drops and brand partnerships with companies we love. 👉🏾@cocoandbreezyeyewear 👈🏾
Our 7th grade selves who had the “Alicia Keys” braids for our middle school photos never thought the queen herself would request to meet us. She invited us to personally hang with her before her performance. Thank you for being an inspiration to so many people and speaking your truth. Shout out to our boo and dancing partner @the_yvesdropper for killing it on stage with @aliciakeys! Swipe over to see our 7th grade photos. #pride #stonewall

#Ad Navigating our own personal style has been nothing short of a journey. If you knew us when we started out in Minnesota or on MySpace, you may not recognize us as the same people. Our grunge days are over, but the edge aspect never left. We mix our outfits and stack our jewelry. It's so unconventional, but it's so us. Double rings, double bracelets, double trouble. Our style has evolved and we love every stage. @theofficialpandora #TravelInStyle #PandoraStyle
Yesterday we partnered with @SamsungMobileUSA on an event to celebrate 10 years #withGalaxy. We had an activation where people could customize their frames, embellished by Breezy of course. As a lot of you know, we started our company with embellishing frames and have not done so in years. It was very special to not only partner with Samsung in celebrating National Sunglasses Day to help everyone celebrate summer, but also to add an element of how we started our own eyewear company. This photo shows our sisterly love while taking a selfie with the Samsung Galaxy S10+. To capture the moment, we simply used S10+’s super cool ‘Instagram mode’ shortcut feature! The device’s design offers an edge to edge display and it automatically adjusts light for a better view. #withGalaxy #ad
As a queer and busy working woman—people always ask me how and when I plan on having kids. For many, this question is personal for a variety of reasons. I don’t have an answer for them, but @TrellisHealth most definitely has a solution for me. They are a revolutionary egg freezing studio that is dedicated to empowering women to plan their reproductive futures. Tomorrow night they are hosting a #LGBTQ+ focused event on egg freezing at their Manhattan studio (7 W 18th St., 9th Floor) from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM. Those who attend get free AMH blood testing, fertility-friendly food, and access to their fertility coach. Follow the link in our bio to RSVP, and follow @TrellisHealth for the latest news and events about egg freezing. #ad —————————————— 📷: @denzelgolatt ✨

Happy Tuesday y’all! This is yesterday’s #ootd. I remember when I didn’t know what “OOTD” meant and @mayasworld had to enlighten us. 😂 I am really excited about this week. As important as it is to be busy and productive, it’s also important to not only feel busy but to be sure you are working towards your top priority goals. I made the decision yesterday to change my mindset up. We all get stuck with certain habits that are not necessarily aligned with our ultimate goals. I challenge you all to step back and look at the bigger picture. Ask yourselves if whatever you are doing helps or drives you closer to those high priority goals. Being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone but I chose this life and I love it! Anyway, on our way to the office to rock out‼️Share some of your goals below ❤️
We just landed back in NYC from LA. Anyone who knows us, knows our obsession with pairing a colored eyeliner with our frames. Of course, we hit the ground running and had to stop by the [UZ by FLOWFUSHI] @unframethebeauty #uz19howard grand opening of their NYC flagship store. It will be opened until July 14th. It’s a super dope experience! Make sure you go and check it out! #uzpartner @unframethebeauty | 👓 Coco paired our “Zuri” frames with the eyeliner. #ad
Part of our daily routine is to grab drinks from our fav spot in Bed-Stuy— we love the energy the space gives 🤘🏾There, we chat with the chillest baristas, check emails, and prep for our day. From there, we commute to our showroom in Chelsea. Our typical day in the showroom consists of designing, planning, inventory checks and an impromptu spinning sesh on our studio DJ set up. But, even after a long day, we find time to get outside. Because we're always on the go and on our devices, we don't have time to change out our glasses. We love the convenience and protection @Transitionslenses offer. They come in different mirrors and colors that allow you to make your look your own. #LightUnderControl #ad —————————————— 📷: @denzelgolatt ✨Coco is pictured in our optical frame [DECATUR].

Good morning💕 Wishing you all a wonderful day. Did you remember to write 3 things of gratitude this morning. Every morning when I wake up, I write 3 things that I am grateful for. There are times when I wake up feeling anxious because I start to think about my long to-do list. Writing 3 things that I am grateful for has helped me feel grounded before I start my day. When I am not feeling grounded, I catch myself not making the best decisions and feeling busy vs actually being productive. I would love to share with you the 3 things that I am grateful for this morning: ▫️I am grateful for waking up this morning with a roof over my head. ▫️I am grateful for the challenges that have come my way. I am happy that I have grown into the person that doesn’t use my energy to stress during those situations. I use those times for personal growth! ▫️I am grateful for all of you. It feels like I am living in a dream. It’s extremely fulfilling to see my ideas come to life and to see people enjoy it! Much love, 💕👓Breezy 📸: @denzelgolatt | MUA: @jhenellehill
