Are You
Festival Ready?

It’s that time of year again! Coachella 2014 is upon us, and while fashion may not be front-and-center on your list (and it shouldn't be), it's still important to make sure you've geared up appropriately to enjoy the festivities.  So before heading off to the desert unprepared, take note - here's a list of items you will definitely be needing…

Ladies first...
  1. A cool hat. A good way to stay shady from the all-day sun.
  2.  Comfortable, yet stylish shoes. Whether they are gladiator sandals, boots or sneakers, make sure they are prepared for dancing.
  3.  A shoulder bag. You will want to be hands-free so you can rock out.
  4. A flowy garment. It will get steamy out there. A flowy maxi skirt or a cool cut off will keep you going in the heat of the day.
And Fellas...
  1. Hats aren't just for the ladies.  Stylish or simply functional, do your skin a solid and wear one.
  2.  Shorts, shorts, shorts.  It's that simple.
  3. In a battle between you and the desert, the desert wins every time.  Bring a sweatshirt / hoodie / fleece - whatever fits your fancy.
  4. You don't want to worry about what your stepping in or who your stepping on - opt for your favorite sneaks over flops.
Most importantly, regardless of how you roll, you'll need some stunner shades. Check out our festival-ready picks.

We're just back from New York having attended Vision Expo, the semi-annual eyewear show where all our favorite brands taut their latest and greatest designs for the coming season.  From perfect pastels to tough titaniums, even the most particular of shoppers will find the perfect new frame among this season's newest designs.  Ergonomic temples at Stark and TAG ensure comfort while bold colors from Karen Walker and Stella McCartney will appeal to the most fashionable of eyewear connoisseurs.

New color combinations for both frames and lenses provide a bright update to the Illesteva Leonard, a DITTO editor's favorite.  Plus, the additional of new optical-only styles from this trend-setting brand is sure to turn heads.  Look for these on DITTO later this spring.

A new "Paper-thin" collection of titanium frames  from MODO are the most lightweight available at less than 7 grams.  Their flexible and colorful designs provide both comfort and an ability to personalize your eyewear style.  For the more discerning customer, Stark's carbon-fiber temple frames for men boast light, heat-resistant and flexible characteristics.

In other optical news, RetroSuperFuture showcased new acetate and metal designs for the fall.  We were particularly impressed by the trendy all metal frames in silver and gold.  


We were also excited to see the initial designs for Zac Posen's new line, launching Fall 2014.  Exquisite gold detailing and always-flattering cat-eye shapes make these must-haves for fall.
