Gals worldwide are going B.A.N.A.N.A.'s over street-style sites and fashion blogs lately and a few issues back (Aug/Sept 07), when we featured some adorable fashion-clad ladies from across the globe, tons of readers wrote in begging us for more! While you can expect a significantly plumper portion of the mag to be dedicated to street trends in upcoming issues, I decided there are just to many budding fashionista's and fashion freaks out there that need to be ...

Silver Lining Opticians

BY Laurie in Style File |

I am always on the hunt for vintage specs, and recently had to replace my beloved frames because I stupidly dropped them. So the hunt was on, and I searched the city for months for the perfect pair. I finally found a sweet pair of vintage YSLs that are very early 80’s Sophia Loren, and I found them at Siver Lining Opticians in Soho. The guys running this cute eyewear shop, Jordan Silver and Erik Sacher are friendly as can be, very knowledgeable and patient ... Read More

These are what you put your mobile devices in, or your weed. I love the gold details, plus they are faux leather so very nice for the animal lovers out there. Claw is one ... Read More

I'm sure that those of you who follow style trends as closely as I do are all familiar with Wardrobe_Remix. But for those who have been sadly left in the dark about this wonderful fashion abode..it's time to get enlightened. A trip to this flickr community started by the lovely tricia royal (writer behind bits and bobbins, another known stop on the styleblog circuit), using your trusty web browser, will reward you the chance to puruse tons of digital pics uploaded ...

I recently had the pleasure of being invited by the folks in ANFAO and the Italian Trade Commission to check out all the smashing new eyewear in Milan at their annual trade show. They flew some writers from the US on a private jet for the weekend, and we even got an in-flight fashion show of, you guessed it, eyeglasses! Once in Milan, the land where all the men wear suits and are suspiciously tan, we got to do some fun things and looked at A LOT of very cool ... Read More
