So I haven’t started shopping whatsoever. I’ve been literally locked up in my house (okay, when I wasn’t not surfing up in Montauk) because of a huge influx of work and a hurricane. And believe me I would love to : New York Fashion week starts next week!!! HELP.

The only thing that’s got me so far, I saw just below my apartment (while I was on my daily hunt for coffee, my life is so exciting) in the window at Devonshire Optical, a local eye doctor who has some cool stuff. And so what I saw are his totally bizarre sunglasses. They’re Elizabeth & James, the other Olsen twins brand that you all introduced me to last time around.

The brand carries great frames but…

These little round guys give you an alien head (or maybe good for a Hans Moleman impression)(If you need proof, click on the arrow on the picture, you’ll see what I’m talking about.) and what’s up with these octogonal ones ?

Between these and my giant sunglasses from this summer, I’m thinking I’ve got a thing for weird frames.

Me, and the rest of the world, it seems. I’m seeing these little round lenses everywhere!

What do you think of them? Cool or a little over the top hip so much so that it falls right after the hype and just becomes pretty whatever?
