i used to work in the optical lens industry.

my advice would be to keep googling the brand name. set up an ebay alert so potential matches can be emailed to you.

a LOT of optical shops keep back stock in their basements. there's no way to send it back. so the store you got it from may still have it. or the store may still have the lookbook in it with the code listed.

do you mean have your current lenses recut to fit an another frame? if so, that's nearly impossible without breaking the lens.

interesting...
the shop i got them from is actually the anne et valentin shop itself-
they opened one here recently and they do have the sunglasses, just not in that color anymore...olive green...

i was talking about putting a new lens in my old frames actually...
i have had old lenses put into new frames as well, though...
a few times
usually a much bigger original frame's lens put into a much smaller frame...
that worked really well...
i guess they were big enough so there was enough lens to work with...
didn't know it could be so complicated...

i'll try the ebay thing as you suggest for the sunglasses though...
can't hurt!
in the meantime i got some cheapo sunglasses from a street vendor yesterday...

i also accosted several people on the street and in shops to ask them about their frames......
you could say i've been slightly obsessed...
hopefully these little cheapos will abate my obsession...


thanks for your input lucy!

i spent the weekend in the country and came back by train...
as I took the subway back downtown, i was struck over and over by all the super stylish ladies on the train...

it's easy to take it for granted, but NY really does have some stylish people...
it is good to be back home~!

No money to buy anything and I actually don't like buying clothes.

I have tons of different kind of earring and now I don't look "boring" hah hah.
The beeeeeest thing ever!

^ I also am a big fan of earrings. I always keep my hair behind my ears and I just recently became infatuated with earrings. I actually came in this thread specifically to say that even though I am pretty professional in my appearance at work, I like to mix it up with fun earrings.
Off work I pretty much live in a black hoodie and yoga pants. I used to love dressing up for everything and anything, but I've gained some weight so now fortunately all my work clothes still fit, everything else? Not so much.

my azzedine alaia heels are shocking well proportioned and comfortable despite being an incredibly high and narrow stiletto heel...

now that is what i call good design...

^ Very interesting ... I don't think I've ever had a stiletto I could really call comfortable.

Well, the weather has shifted, so I've shifted from my usual gaudy tie dye t-shirts to my sexy dress shirts and paisley ties. Paisley is a nice way to keep some of the psychedelic aspects that are present in the tie dye while still looking classy.

today was so windy that it felt super cold and as a result i just cared about being warm and looked completely horrible as i woke up late and had no time to get ready and just grabbed some warm stuff and threw it on...
then- we went to a bunch of the coolest places in the city and every time i caught a glimpse of myself in a reflection i started laughing cause i think it is so funny that of all the times for me to look ridiculous, this was the just the most ridiculous...

oh well...tomorrow's another day...
