sunnies and gwyneth

I saw my twin sister the other day and something about her looked slightly different--and yet a lot cooler. It was her new Wildfox Catfarer sunglasses, which look a bit similar to her stalwart black Ray-Ban Wayfarers, but edgier, statementy-er, fresher, with a little '80s-Vuarnet thrown in. Somehow they improved her overall look. (Just like the mirrored sunglasses kick things up in the pic, above.) Of course, I went and bought myself a pair, and during that quick sunglasses shopping stint, I noted a few other pairs that have the same look-enhancing but not crazy different effect. They include these sunnies by Le Specs, Saint Laurent, Ray-Ban and Kate Spade

P.S. Last night I went to GOOP's pop-up store opening party and ran into GP, herself! If you live in LA, I highly recommend you check it out. Everything from the chairs to the light fixtures to the display shelves--all hand-picked by Gwyneth--is available for purchase, along with exclusive clothing by Stella McCartney, Michael Kors, L'Agence, Veronica Beard and Clare Vivier. The store is open through May 11 at the Brentwood Country Mart.

Those glasses are FAB! Your sis looks all kinds of amazing (as do you!). And I can't believe you ran into Gwyneth! How was she in person? I love her! Wish she would come out with an album of her own...her voice is lovely.

XOXO, Jenn

Hi Marlien
do you know who makes the mirrored sunnies in the picture?

I've just been meaning to thank you for the multiple posts a day. I so look forward to seeing them and consider them my special treat while working. I've gotten so many ideas and have ordered a number of special things thanks to you and all your hard work—and I know it's hard work! Best, Stacy

I am wearing a years-old 3.1 Phillip Lim embellished tank and a Veronica Beard blazer from last year. It was a fun night out!
