"Gimme, Gimme!" Holiday Wish List

We all have one. You know, that secret list you would give the real Santa if you could. It is the list that is not at all made up of the practical things you asked for, or peace on earth or good will towards men.

I mean the wish list with the REALLY cool stuff on it that makes your heart skip a beat. Those things that you love just because they are beautiful and the mere thought of rocking them makes you feel that much more marvelous. 

Fabulous extended-calf Frye Jane boots to pair with a great Nic +Zoe cardigan? Yes, please! Natori pajamas in a luxurious, soft and silky fabric for a night in with a good glass of wine and a great book? Check! A cozy, fabulous, and soft Pendleton wool dress to pair with a fabulous Coach bag? Oh, Santa! Cat-eye Maui Jim glasses for looking Hollywood fabulous while rocking a Michael Kors lambskin moto jacket? Be still my heart! Close out the wish list with a luxurious and cozy Michael Kors faux fur vest paired with a BB Dakota sequined skirt and you are ready to show the world a little bit of your inner diva.

I hope Santa, Krampus and all the Magi bring you everything you want this holiday season, beyond peace on earth and good will towards men. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming New Year!

Maui Jim Spreads the Aloha Spirit to Zappos HQ

2,681 miles. That’s the distance that separates the islands of Hawaii from Las Vegas. But at the beginning of this week, the aloha spirit was only yards away when our friends from Maui Jim dropped by to spread a little Hawaiian love to Zappos HQ.

The lifestyle eyewear brand handed out close to 500 Maui Jim blue leis, brochures about their amazing sunglasses and flip-flop bottle opener key chains. They also let Zapponians try on the latest styles of Maui Jim Polarized sunglasses to show off their beautiful color clarity and glare protection.

The best part of the Maui Jim visit, however, was arguably the three beautiful hula dancers they brought along, accompanied by live Polynesian drum beats! They even did some impromptu hula lessons for brave Zappos employees who didn’t mind getting down Hawaiian style in front of co-workers!

A big “mahalo” (thank you) goes out to the Maui Jim Ohana (family) for visiting our campus and spreading the aloha spirit!

What's Hot in Summer Shades

summer sunglasses,shades,sunnies,women's sunglasses,sunglasses  trends,summer trends,ray  ban,maui jim,betsey johnson,summer shades,

Perhaps the most essential of all summer accessories, sunglasses are an easy way to infuse style into your entire wardrobe this season. Not only do these can’t-live-without accessories protect your eyes from the harsh summer sun, they’re a great way to update your look with minimal effort.

Here are some of our favorite sunglasses trends to look out for this summer:

Metal-rimmed aviators: This classic shape is the way to go if you want something that’s universally flattering and versatile. The Ralph RA 4076 is a great update to this style with its colored arms.

Pop colors: A pair of brightly-colored shades really keeps the focal point on your face! Check out the Ray-Ban Cats 5000.

Cat-eye frames: Taking its inspiration from retro sunglasses, these are a fashionista favorite, and for good reason! They’re super fun and whimsical. Check out the BJ268 by Betsey Johnson.

Oversized frames: No matter what the season, large sunglasses are always ultra chic. The Maui Jim Lani in Tokyo Tortoise/Maui Rose is such a classic choice. The tortoiseshell color is great year-round.
