I love finding cool shops in New York and recently my friend Jessica introduced me to Silver Lining Opticians (100 Thompson Street, New York, NY 10012, 212-274-9191) which is beyond cool. They have outfitted some of the hottest musicians including Rihanna, Jay Z, Kayne West, and Katy Perry in chic shades but they also have lots of shades and frames for us non-rock stars. The shop is known for having the largest collection of vintage Dior sunglasses but also have their own new line of frames and hot Persols for the boys. I enjoy trying on as many pairs as possible on each visit especially the ones that make me feel like Rachel Zoe, who surprisingly has never been to the shop. I found this shocking because I know she would find the place as “bananas” as I do! Happy Shopping!
i’m a bit obsessed with sunglasses – and when i was little i would try and lie to eye-doctor so i could get glasses – i dunno why – but i ALWAYS wanted to wear glasses ..
I would say you do! Great shop, wish I were nearby to stop in…
oh gosh, this place would be dangerous for me! i get all imelda marcos when it comes to fabulous glasses.
Ah, New York, New York…in New York would you find such a collection of retro to up-town glasses!
I think glasses are very becoming for you!
100% yes. he he
I need some shades
you look so much smarter in those glasses, i can hardly tell you’re blonde!
I love glasses on you! Bananas!
So weird —- pop over to see what I posted yesterday. We were thinking along the same line!
I really like them! And I really like the shop…wish I was in NY!
Steve McQueen, what a guy. And, that shop is a absolute “must go” when I’m in town next; and those frames you have are really cute.
Persols aren’t just for the boys! They have plenty of styles for women, I’ve been wearing them for years.
I always thought I would have made an excellent Mrs. Steve McQueen. Fabulous post, and a solid choice on your spex!
There is no address on their site ! Will you divulge ??
got to love the variety…
