DIFFERENT SHADES: The smoky frames of these UV-safe, made-in-Japan Copious Sunglasses by Dita (about $325) are sexy enough to make us consider ditching our trusty Ray Ban aviators. Maybe. Available at Naked Eye, 192 Orchard Street; 212-253-4935.
BAITED BREATH: Desperately awaited, impossibly hyped 3.1 phillip lim shoes are due to hit stores this month. Try to remain calm as you scroll through this slideshow of designs (omg gold jazz shoes!!) over at The Cut. 3.1 phillip lim, 115 Mercer Street; 212-334-1160.
STEALLA: Tuesday and Wednesday only, cloths and accessories from Stella McCartney’s spring/summer ’09 collection (plus some merch from previous seasons) will be slashed to unspeakable discounts (jeans for $59?!) at Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion. Better wear kneepads and a mouthguard to this one. 123 West 18th Street; 212- 463-0200. More information here.
