'Tis the Season
Recently, I lost my favorite pair of Karen Walker shades. You’ve all been there, I know. Anyhow, I looked high and low, but couldn’t find them anywhere. Finally, I went online to replace them and realized that I didn’t feel like forking out another $250 for the same sunnies. eBay to the rescue! I hunted those puppies down and found a pair for $150. They arrived in pristine condition and I was ecstatic to have replaced them before they sold out in stores or were discontinued. Total save.

Trendspotting: Mirrored Sunglasses
Iridescent mirrored shades started popping up a year ago on the runways but they really came into the spotlight when they were recently embraced by editors like Giovanna Battaglia and, subsequently, snapped by all the street style photographers. Polyvore is a great source for seeing what’s on the market right now (check out the options here). Sneaky shoppers that we are, we suggest scoping out your faves and then checking to see if they’re available on eBay. When it comes to an eBay search item like sunglasses, it’s best to be extremely specific in your query, otherwise you’ll end up with thousands of options that might not be right for you. Get the designer, the style name, and know the cost ahead of time. It’s a sure-fire way of getting exactly what you want… hopefully for a bargain.

The Real Magic School Bus

By Jenny Bahn

No longer do you have to be in New York, Paris, London, or Milan to be at the forefront of fashion. Warby Parker is democratizing the experience, bringing their showroom full of super cool glasses on a tour around the United States. To accomplish this goal, the Warby Parker team has transformed a big yellow school bus — “knitted out” as they say — into a wood-paneled showcase lined with their vintage-inspired eyewear and shelves full of books.

They’ve already hit New York, Boston, and Philly, but there are more stops to go. If you live in Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego, or Los Angeles, you’re in luck. They’ll be on the road until February 19th, 2012. To learn more about the Warby Parker Class Trip, visit their website

Serious Sunnies
By Jenny Bahn
We’re on a Ray-Bans rebound, friends. The understated cool we’ve been channelling since the Bob Dylan days is getting pumped up a few notches, and simple, black wayfarers are getting traded out for chunky, colored frames. Girls are taking their shades as seriously as their shoes now, and that means the angular cat-eye frame is getting a new, exaggerated twist.
