Zombie flu.

Excuse (again) my protracted absence. I have fallen prey to the zombie flu. Seriously. That is what it is called. For two days I couldn't eat or get out of bed, let alone think. But today I have homemade chicken soup, freshly laundered sheets, and a bag of tangerines. So I'm gonna be ok.

24 hours before I fell ill (Monday), I got  to take a peek at the Amy Sacks Eyewear collection. Their showroom is in Portland, but they do direct sales, which keeps overhead low and allows them to focus on quality materials. I'll be frank, I always think that kind of marketing talk is just so much mumbo-jumbo. But then I saw the frames. In a word, yum. The lines are very classic, but the colors are fresh and flattering, and there really is something for every face shape. They are working to develop a sustainable line made from bamboo and recycled plastics, and, wait for it....all profits go toward the Pixie Project, which I can say first hand is a worthwhile cause. I'm not in the market for a new pair of specs just yet, but when I am, I think I'll be donning these. Tres geeky, no?

  1. Perhaps wearing orange as well as eating them will kick the zombie flu. Love this look.

    Except for the sick part. Be well!

    But back to the fabulous for a moment:
    that is truly a scrumptious outfit in every detail.
