Get your shades while they're hot. Summer is quickly approaching (or so we hope) which means you deserve a fresh pair of shades. After all, you will invariably live in them come June. If we must say, Karen Walker's Spring 2008 eyewear collection is one of our favorites. The shapes are diverse this season with dense frames in strong matte colors. These shades are selling out everywhere which means those who spent hundreds on polarized Wayfarers have finally decided to get with times and kick it up a notch. If you're a New Yorker, you're in luck because Den (the Odin concept store) is nearly fully stocked with the collection. Better get a move on though as the Karen Walker collections will soon be replaced by menswear designer Robert Geller's duds. Baby, it's going to be a good summer.
The full blooms of Spring are right around the corner, so we couldn't help falling in love with Vincent Longo's Wet Diamond Eyeshadow in Verite. The Wet Diamond Eyeshadows are designed to range from a buildable sheer when applied dry to a dazzling rich hue when applied wet. Verite, a vibrant emerald, is the perfect choice for celebrating nature's return.
To use Wet Diamond Eyeshadow for maximum color payoff, simply dampen your eyeshadow brush and apply. If using another brand, be sure the shadow you're using is approved for wet use.
Sometimes trends appear to us through osmosis. Just the other day we walking down the street thinking, 'Hey man, I'd really like a thin, denim shirt', and then WHAM!, we see one in the window of our favorite vintage store. Now, it seems we can't escape the darn things. A denim button down could be put in the b-list of wardrobe staples but like we always say, if your Dad has had one for twenty years, you're in the clear. We imagine it worn loosely, like you've just run out of the house for the paper and a coffee. This summertime basic would be sweet with a pair of tortoise specs, a white Hanes t shirt (no bra!), and pair of vintage shorts (yes, this imaginary outfit inspired our 'Hey man, I'd really like a denim shirt.'). With fashion as simple as this, hell, you might actually have time to read The New Yorker this afternoon.
