Ever since Pantone announced that Ultra Violet would be the color of the year, we haven’t been able to get it out of our heads. I’m seeing it in all of the stores and it gives me visions of springtime all year round. I am the biggest fan of my Nike Flyknit Racers; all my friends will tell you that it’s one of the best pairs of sneakers I’ve ever owned. Even though I don’t need another, if I could pick a second pair, it would be this one. This shade of ultra violet is so pretty and beautifully detailed. It’s subtle, but you can even catch the light blue that runs from the back of the heel to the very front giving it a very icy look. Ready to make a purchase? You can buy it here for $150 USD.

This was probably the worst timing of all to re-do my blog because it meant that I had to miss the first few days of fashion week. It was torture seeing the shows in real time on Instagram Stories. It was tempting to run straight to the reviews afterwards to see every piece from the collections, but I decided to test my willpower. If I couldn’t post, I wasn’t going to look at any collection at all and therefore would be resisting that urge. Instead, I waited until it was all live for me to start things up again and we’re picking up right where we left off!

A few days ago, I turned Yow Yow! off to give it a bit of a face lift. I didn’t think anyone would notice since we’ve been a relatively quiet blog for the last few years. The blog was down for less than a week and even though we’ve been gone for much longer periods of time, it was still a weird feeling. I would come home after work and all I could do was just consume content. I didn’t have a place to share it and I didn’t want to mess with the migration that was being done so I just stayed quiet. There was a part of this process that was so freeing. What if I just didn’t have Yow Yow! and I had a normal life where this wasn’t sometimes my hobby or “double life?” I think about this retiring moment often and obviously, this isn’t it today, but I often think about how hard it will be to let go.

The eyewear brand is tapping into a new market after having so much success since their launch in 2010. For the first time ever, they are unveiling a collection of glasses just for kids. Frames will start at just $95.
“Over the years, we’ve heard from customers on the hunt for smaller — but just as good-looking — options for their kids,” said Warby Parker’s Co-CEO and Co-Founder Dave Gilboa, in a press statement. And starting Tuesday, fans of the brand will be able to purchase mini specs for their tot-sized offspring at any one of its eight New York City stores during a 12-week pilot run.
These playground-friendly glasses are scaled-down versions of longtime favorite frames — Wilkie, Lyle, Louise, Percey, Chamberlain and Daisy — and will be available in an assortment of equally treasured hues — Peony, Jet Black, Eastern Bluebird Fade, Oxford Blue Crystal, Crystal, Oak Barrel and Tea Rose Fade. The smaller-shaped glasses come in two sizes: A junior size for kids aged eight and up and a junior-junior size for littler ones, aged four (peak adorableness) to seven.
Growing up, I still remember my first pair of frames and as hard as I tried to find the most stylish pair, I never won. Functional sure, fashion forward? Not so much. I’ve been a fan of Warby Parker frames since they began so it’s wonderful to hear that now kids can get in on the action.
