Today! More Sunglasses!

For our latest collection, we’re going out with a bang, if you can call a whole 14 (!) new styles of sunglasses a bang.

For our latest collection, we’re going out with a bang, if you can call a whole 14 (!) new styles of sunglasses a bang.

Four new shapes—youthful silhouettes Ketchum, Hammond, Dorothy, and Barrie—and five just-out hues—Crystal Aqua, Crystal Fern, Himalayan Salt, Lavender, and Melon—complete a cluster of other tried-and-true lookers remade in a rainbow of colors. Nancy in Lavender and Ormsby in Crystal Aqua with similarly hued lenses (take note of the latter’s mirrored lens) capture a monochromatic mood, and blush is a big thing too: Barrie in Jet Black with rosy lenses and Dorothy in Melon with rose gold mirrored lenses are pretty stunning.

This might be our final rollout for the season, but we’re only just revving up; it’s not even officially summer yet, after all.

Books We Love: Kaitlyn Greenidge’s “We Love You, Charlie Freeman”

Consuming Kaitlyn Greenidge’s debut novel is like being coaxed into watching a horror movie by a trusted companion.

Consuming Kaitlyn Greenidge’s debut novel is like being coaxed into watching a horror movie by a trusted companion. You suspected something might be lurking in the shadows, but you pushed on, certain your dear friend wouldn’t set you up. By the time the anxiety simmering in the pit of your stomach turned into quiet terror, it was too late. You got got.

Set in early ‘90s Massachusetts, “We Love You, Charlie Freeman” tells the story of the Freemans, an African-American family hired to teach Charlie—a chimp—sign language. Upon being chosen, the Freemans leave their black neighborhood in Boston and move to the Tonybee Institute in (mostly white) Courtland County. The eldest of the two Freeman children, Charlotte, is not about that experiment life, and she knows that something is amiss from the jump. She’s not wrong, and it’s in her attempt to shed light that the novel speaks to America’s racial proclivities in a way that eviscerates you with its frankness.

Greenidge hasn’t written “We Love You, Charlie Freeman” to comfort you; she wants to be sure you don’t wimp out and watch through your fingers. A true friend for life.
