Are you blind as a bat and in need of some new specs like me? Thursday is your day, then. From 4pm-8pm Occhiali Modern Optics will be showing off their new space and hosting a Chrome Hearts Trunk Show. The line of eyewear was named the Council of Fashion Designers of America Accessory Designer of the Year, which is basically a guarantee that these glasses are cream of the crop and the best in performance and design. Chrome Hearts has both conservative and edgy frames (and everything in between) and the staff at Occhiali want to help you find the perfect pair for your face, personality, and lifestyle. Stop in on Thursday and get fixed up with a new pair of glasses. I’ll “see” you there. (I couldn’t help it.)
I think it was my obsession with Sofia Coppola’s dazzling Marie Antoinette film that led me to love lace eye veils (far left), but I was thrilled to see Chanel employ them in the fall 2011 couture show. (Far right.) I’m not suggesting you wear this to the grocery store or anything–hello, Hamburglar–but wouldn’t it be delicious to play a mysterious lady at a party at some point? (Okay, costume party or whatever?) I happen to know Dallas’ own Cassie MacGregor makes these delightful confections. That’s me there in the middle wearing one–don’t judge how cool they are by the not-so-mysterious or sassy look on my face. Contact Cassie about getting your own.
If you’re anyone who’s anyone you know that Morgan Gianni, owner of Fashion Optical, is your go-to guy for eyewear. (Confession: I didn’t actually know this until someone “in-the-know” told me. So now you know, too.) Yes, he carries all the luxe lines: D&G, Tom Ford, etc., but it’s his skill in matching clients to their perfect frames that makes him a star. (It doesn’t hurt that he’s sweet as sugar and impeccably dressed at all times, either.) A roster of Dallas celeb-types shop with him (Abi Ferrin, the Simmons gals, and Jan Strimple, for a little name-dropping), and his shades are often used in photo shoots and runway shows. If all that wasn’t enough, he’s now designed his own line of sunglasses which will be launched in the next couple weeks. The line is called M. Gianni. Kristin and I had the privilege of playing dress-up with his new shades yesterday morning, and we’re loving the upcoming accessories. Get your own sneak peek of M. Gianni, and check out photos after the jump.
