I have always been a picky person when it comes to food, especially when it comes to what I wear. That being said, I have a tricky time when it comes to choosing new glasses. My solution for a couple years now has been to swap out sunglass lenses for prescription lenses, my latest pair being these Celine audrey frames. There are so many more options to chose from, and they will be unique!
I have a new obsession and can not wait to share it with everyone: customized phone cases! Casetify has an amazing selection of graphic iPhone cases but what made me even more excited was getting to create my very own customized design using my artwork. I rounded up a couple of my favorite things and sketched them up in Photoshop. From there the upload and design process was a breeze, they even show you a preview image of what the final product will look like. Now don't get discouraged if you are not an artist, they also have a bunch of collage options if you want to upload photographs or instagrams! Can't wait to get started on yours?

If you are going to buy a new bag for this season, it should be The Transport Tote from Madewell. To put it simply, their selection of leather goods are made well, and that is something worth investing in these days. I have been using my tote religiously for the past few weeks, it is the perfect size for my laptop and drawing tablet. My favorite part is the durability- it has already seen a couple rainy days, and it still looks brand new.
Throughout all my years as a vintage collector, I have come across these 1960's Emilio Pucci oversized sunglasses twice, and both times I have regretted not purchasing the printed frames. The first time I became aware of their existence, I was the ripe young age of 15. It was one of many Summers spent in Los Angeles, I was just beginning to nurture my passion for all things vintage. During one of our Mother-Daughter shopping outings, I spotted the sunglasses at Paperbag Princess. I was obsessed, they had to be mine. At the wildly extravagant price of $500, my Mother and I agreed (to disagree) that this was a bit too excessive of a purchase for a teenager. But the obsession had begun, and I would continue to daydream of these hippie shades for years to come... Until spotting them for a second time. This time at an antiques mall in New York City. I was older, more mature and surely deserving of such amazing eyewear. The price tag was still in the $500 range. Without even having a Mother to negotiate with, I had to agree with the past decision: this was still a bit much for a pair of sunglasses. These frames have forever been "the one that got away" until that fateful day I received an Ebay alert: "EMILIO PUCCI PRINTED SUNGLASSES $250 AUCTION ENDING IN 1 HOUR." I immediately logged on, placed my bid and crossed my fingers for no competitors. Obviously I won, because the photographs you see now are in my possession. I know they seem a bit silly and maybe not for everyone, but they are no less special to me.
