I don't know about you guys, but the sun has been shining lately and it's making me forget the frigid weather outside. Spring is on my mind and while we still have a bit more cold to endure, we're getting there, slowly but surely. Nothing says spring like a fresh pair of sunnies, and Karen Walker's new campaign featuring grannies from Advanced Style, put a huge smile on my face. Known for her unique designs and quirky aesthetic, this kiwi-designer focuses on making sunglasses that are modern with a classic, vintage feel. Would love to one day carry her stuff in the shop...but in the meantime, we'll be on the lookout for retro sunnies to add to the collection.
