I know, I know, the new, less dark, more commercial sound isn't everyones favorite. (me included) But it sounds nice in the shop and Kendall can sing along. So stop being so elitist and enjoy it...and maybe if you keep the hate mail to a minimum I'll post an older tune as well.

For the rest of you we just wanted to let you know that, YES, we will be open both today and tomorrow. Dr. Larry even has a few spots left on his schedule today for those of you in need of an eye exam. For the rest of you, I hear that Costco has heated socks- buy 2 get 1 free. Line forms to the left.

Anyway, crazy seems to be a theme for me recently. Continuing that trend are the new handmade silk collection frames from Italian design house Okki. Fortunately this is crazy in a GOOD way. As opposed to the crazy from my personal life. As Jack Nicholson once said "Go sell crazy somewhere else, we're all stocked up here".
And what we're stocked up with are absolutely beautiful handmade Italian acetate frames with beautiful Italian silk embedded in them. Yes...inside of them. Each item is handmade and each one is unique. Kind of like snowflakes without the annoying melting part.

Big thanks to Cade and his brother at TicketStock, who after a few mis-steps getting the tickets to us, hooked my brother (the better looking , younger one above) and I up with an upgrade for the festivities. I just hope it takes me less than 28 years to pay off these tickets.
No, that's not a tomato...that's my fat head...cool "Fightin' Phils" rally towel though.

Stop in and view the entire collection from these 2 great design houses including the brand new offerings for fall.
We'll even have have some food and drinks for all those in attendance...and go-go dancers.
Ok, maybe I lied about the go-go dancers part, but maybe we can convince Aubrey to debut a new hairstyle.

Check out the cool shades, rumor has it that an unnamed shop in town stocks them...but that's just the word on the street. This is off their previous album "Sink or Swim". Check out their new album "The '59 Sound" too.

The future is sexy, unique, and flexible.
The future is free of the restrictions of solder and screws...looking like something but feeling like nothing.
The future is handmade, the finest quality, respectful of the past but not limited by it.
The future is laser cut, vibrant, with even the tiniest details accounted for.
The future is great design from great companies and great people.
At ParisWest Optical the future is the best products, the best service, provided by the best staff in the industry. At ParisWest Optical the future is now.

Kendall likes them, but of course she thinks they're candy and wants to eat them.
Nice petite sizes for adults and kids in unique color combinations as well as some unique readers.
Kendall modeling a style in grape...er I mean purple. Stop in and check them out.

First the "White Stripes", now the "Black Keys", these 2 man er...2 person bands (apologies to Meg White) have inspired Rudy and I to start our own. Calling ourselves the "Red States" it'll feature me on kazoo and Rudy on tambourine. Look for songs about BBQ, Nascar, and firearms. Or not.

I know I used to # the new arrivals, but I think we got to 20 and I ran out of digits to count...since I wasn't raised next to a nuclear reactor we're going to have to deal with it. Anyway, we just got a bunch of cool new specs from the Danish design team at Bellinger. Check out the cool colors and wild temple treatments.
Actually they are already finding new homes...above we have longtime customer Margie and her new pair: model Galaxy in Olive/Bronze.

I'm not sure who told these guys that dancing was a good idea. At least the glasses look good. Your results may vary.

Ok, now that that's out of the way, since we're growing at such an insane rate, and we're inundated with new collections and products to view (we currently have over 7000 options in stock), we've had to recruit reinforcements.
Introducing the "frame gnome"... a slightly older and wiser relative to our fairy.
The gnome (no relation to the garden gnome from those travel commercials), spends her days sorting thru products, labeling them her "favorite ever" or "pretty pretty", as well as dancing to "MissDonna music" and requesting copious amounts of "chokit milk". As fall approaches, stay tuned as we'll have plenty of new "pretty pretty" arrivals in the upcoming weeks.

We just received a ton (really a ton, I weighed it) of new releases from Bevel (pictured on Kendall), Anne Et Valentin, Oliver Peoples, Mosely Tribes, Paul Smith, Theo, Mikli, Maui Jim, Kaenon, Salt, Kate Spade, Takumi, Vanni, Derapage, Urband, Theory, Oakley, Mykita, and much more. So get out of the heat, stop in, grab a glass of Italian lemonade and check out what's new.

Anyway... we're happy that we now have a great new sales rep and that the new products are absolutely stunning...stop in and check them out.
We're back. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. We're currently unpacking new stuff from Theory and Traction Productions. We'll post pics soon. Until then enjoy the video...or stop by and Kendall will entertain you with her rendition. (repeating the words "no handlebars" over and over until your head explodes)
