Mia Moretti Takes a Glimpse of New York From the Inside

New York is my city, and although I travel like a mad woman all year round stomping down at music festivals, film festivals, and fashion weeks across the globe, there really is no place like home. Fashion week can feel like a whirlwind of bloggers, bustiers, models, mockeries, designers, DJs, editors, evolutionists, photographers, and phonies coming at you harder than a tornado, but when you claim New York City as your stomping ground, that’s all par for the course. Bring it on, I say. There is no better place in the world, and to prove it, I called up one of my favorite gal pals (and talented photographer) Diggy Lloyd to hit the streets with me and bring you a little taste of this beautiful, crazy city.

Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s Latest Vision: Optical Eyewear

With a 2011 CFDA Award nomination under their two-for-one belt, it’s safe to say that the Olsen twins have established themselves as respected fashion designers. While we’re big fans of their luxury line, the Row, we’re particularly fond of their more contemporary – and more affordable – everyday line, Elizabeth and James. That’s why, in light of their successful sunglasses collection, we’re super-excited to hear that MKA is launching optical eyewear frames under that lower-priced label.

Specs come in a range of retro styles, like the above frames, called The Pearl, and are all priced under $300. See more styles here.

We all know that these girls tend to think big, so we can’t wait to see what else the designing duo has up their exceptionally chic sleeves.
