Why Don't You Ask Me?

Karen Walker Sunglasses

These were on my resort birthday wishlist (here) and my amazing sister Simone was ever so kind enough to oblige my request. Let me digress for a moment and tell you about Simone. She isn’t OBSESSED with fashion and shopping like I am. Hence, she didn’t know where to find these fabulous Karen Walker sunnies. She went here and there and everywhere and most sales associates she asked at the high-end stores in Washington, D.C. had never even heard of Karen Walker. A travesty indeed! Now of course Simone couldn’t ask me where to find Karen Walker (Barneys Co-op, Shopbop.com, Eyegoodies.com) because that would have spoiled the surprise, so she did what any amatuer shopper would do….she ordered them ALL THE WAY from New Zealand (where the eponymous designer is from) and paid exorbitant international shipping prices too (I love you Simone!). I know you aren’t shopping for me (unless of course you want to be, in which case, I will insist), but if you happen to run into this problem in the future, there is a simple solution: just ask me. Please! I eat, drink, and breathe fashion. I live to shop. I shop online. I shop in stores. I study my monthly issues of Marie Claire, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Lucky, Vogue, In Style, and People Stylewatch with the same intensity that an almost 40 year old might study the developing wrinkles around her eyes. Basically, I will have an answer for you, and if I don’t, I will diligently research your question until I find the answer. Believe me, I spend hours and hours every day diligently researching topics of much less interest to me. This is fun.
