Ray Ban Wayfarers

I'm pretty sure the ray ban wayfarer thing is completely over... which is why I just bought some.  It happened with the J. Lo sunnies, does anyone remember?  Nonetheless, I recently bought myself a pair.  It was mainly motivated by the fact that I mainly wear black but I have about 4-5 pairs of brown sunglasses, which makes no sense.

I noticed that Ray Bans made an unusually dark tortoise colored one, which made me cave in. (see below)  They gave me one of those $20 off for your birthday coupons, which was basically the tax, but every time it's sunny out now, I can't wait to wear them.  Also it's really hard to see my eyes through them so I can basically stare at people without their knowledge.  See, I'm doing it right now in this picture and you can't tell.

Proenza Schouler + Net Art

Yesterday "Proenza Schouler released their new Tumblr-inspired fashion film directed by David Sims and Eddie the Wheel. It’s an assaulting array of lo-fi neon textures, quick edits, and layered video collages, designed for the shortest of attention spans. The clothes featured take a backseat to the brand’s assertion that it’s hip to digital culture and the aesthetics that have been circulating online under the umbrella of net artJack McCollough explains the move, stating, 'We’re into luxury, but we’re also equally interested in contemporary culture.'"
