Linda Farrow Eyewear- Stylert.com

Linda Farrow is a luxury eyewear brand that became a cult accessory in the 1970s. The brand is known today for collaborations with several designers, including Alexander Wang, Matthew Williamson, Dries Van Noten and Jeremy Scott. The Linda Farrow sunglasses are praised amongst stylish Londoners and the international jet set, they are a must have for fashionistas.

Launched in 1970, Linda Farrow’s eponymous label was perhaps the first to design sunglasses with fashion in mind, her avant-garde sense of style and relentless experimentation quickly gaining her acclaim among London’s stylish elite, including Yoko Ono, whose Linda Farrow wraparound shades became part of her signature style.

In April 2003 Linda Farrow Vintage was re-launched. Simon Jablon, son of 70's designer, Linda, and now Creative Director, stumbled across a generous stash of original 70's & 80's sunglasses in their London Islington warehouse such as Vintage Pucci, Vintage Sonia Rykiel and his mother's own brand, Linda Farrow.

Linda Farrow Vintage returned to reclaim their rightful position consisting over 2000 different designs all in pristine condition, ranging from one-off pieces to 500 per style. All in their original packaging, Jablon decided to launch Linda Farrow Vintage and sell his retro specs to exclusive retailers world-wide.

Transforming Church in Rural America by Shannon O'Dell
A great look inside the story of Brand New Church, and how God calls people to enter the most hopeless of situations to do his work. While it is estimated that 80% of the population of the United States now live in an urban setting, I lead a church that would be classified as "rural" and on a district largely made up of "rural" communities. While this book is desperately in need of an editor, it is a great picture of what it takes to turn a church around in rural America.


Books I've Been Reading

If you know me at all you know that I love to read. In fact I'm spending most of today in a coffee shop in Michigan doing a little pleasure reading, but my eyes are starting to get that hazy, triple-vision, you've been reading too long feeling so I thought I'd stop and write a quick post about what I've been reading lately.

The Blind Side by Michael Lewis
I've always been impressed with the depth of Michael Lewis' books and this is a far more complex book than the movie lets on with its overly sentimental storyline. A great inside look at a unique story and the forces within the NFL that led to an opportunity of a lifetime for a young man named Michael Oher. I'm reading this book in preparation for our upcoming "God at the Movies" series in July.
