Karen Walker apparel is a little too prissy, sweet, elegant and clean-cut for some one as classless as me. Karen Walker Eyewear, on the other hand, is a whole different story. They got sass, they got spunk, they got that little hint of crazy that I love.

The moment I met her SS11 Number One in black and crystal fluro yellow online I was smitten. Though, I didn't dare add them to the cart. Style rule #1: Know yourself. Myself has an unsubtle head - it's big, round, square and in your face so sharp angles in eyewear can clash terribly. Couple that with a low sitting, nose bridge (Pham genetics) and I'd be a real dumbass if I didn't try before I buy.

While up in Sydney for the New Balance NB574.com launch in May, I went to Incu in Sydney for "retail research" purposes. Yup, very important work business...Ahem. They didn't stock the black and yellow Karen Walkers I wanted but I tried on the shape in crazy tortoise and they sit perfectly somewhere between retro and futuristic.

I will get you one day soon Karen Walker SS11 Number Ones, I will.
