john lennon style round sunglasses, featured heavily in uk vogue this month. remember how popular these were in the nineties? oh yes – even my brother had a pair. it’s only a matter of time before these make a comeback like aviators & wayfarers did (and still are… flippen wayfarers. give it a rest people!)

if you have an old house / apartment & you’re in the process of restoring it, be sure to check out Door Sixteen – Anna & her husband bought an 1890s Victorian rowhouse in Newburgh, NY a few years back (after moving out of Brooklyn) and they’ve slowly been restoring it since. she has some pretty rad before & afters in her flickr (the bathroom renovations are awesome)
look, i’m enough of a girl to admit that i enjoy gossip girl as much as the next girl (girl). and all chicks dig chuck bass. he looks slightly gay in some of them, but so be it. check out the slideshow at GQ.
