Sally Jessy Raphael’s Signature Red Glasses Came With Her Pap Smear

“I couldn’t see the teleprompter. So I saw an ad that said, ‘We do a Pap smear and give you red glasses.’ They said were going to trade me up [for a more expensive pair]. I said: ‘You’re not going to trade me up. I don’t have that kind of money.’ It’s all they had for $19.95.”

What’s Up With These $400 J.Crew Glasses?

Hey, hey, hey, J.Crew, since when did you start slapping Barneys price tags on your previously affordable goods? While we still adore you, we got a bit of a shock yesterday while doing some online window shopping on your site when we saw these cute sunglasses for … $395? Um, what? The deal—they’re part of a special collection from the famous eyewear brand A. R. Trapp, a “family-owned-and-operated company … known for its elegant, timeless designs and expert dedication to the craft—many clients have been wearing the same A.R. Trapp styles for decades (Spike Lee and famed architect Philip Johnson have counted among them).”

The vintage vibe on these thick-framed specs is pretty neat, but neat enough to drop $400 on? Hmm … [J.Crew] Keep reading »
