Prism Optics - Take me to Rio!

As a sufferer of both poor eyesight and my current ugly frames, I've developed a bit of a fixation with Prism optics.  The style below is 'Rio' is cream tortoiseshell and is high up on the wishlist this week.  With frames named after the world's most brilliant cities - Rio, New York, London, Paris, Rome - Prism provide a great alternative to the old trend of overly blinged-out designer frames (hello Chanel).  Unfortunately for us, they are only available through Dover Street Market & Browns in London, and Barneys in NY.  On the other hand, what better souvenir to pick up from your favourite international destination?  You can see the range for yourself at  

Rio Crystal Grey

Cycle chic

After a stint living in Copenhagen earlier in the year, we became hooked on all things bicycle and are currently working on some careful restoration of vintage frames.  

Until we have some great pics of our own to share with you, here are some of our favourite cycle-centric pages to check out...

Fancy Footwork - Vivienne Westwood & Melissa winged sandals

For all of you out there who want a shoe that captures the platform of a Japanese Geisha, the comfort of rubber Melissa shoes and the winged ankles of a Roman god, this is your lucky day!  These slightly bonkers but completely awesome winged sandals from Dame Vivienne are a little unhinged, but we can't help but be tempted to invest.  They won't be available until early November and will also be available in magenta - perfect for those days when you need a little lift!

Josh Goot @ London Fashion Week

Kudos to Josh Goot for stepping it up!  Over the past 2 seasons, he has absolutely killed it.  After not loving some of his work over the past couple of years, we feel he has really lifted his game and delivered another smashing collection at London Fashion week.  His signature is really developing, and this strong, graphic style suits him well.  How lovely to see an Australian boy experiencing such great success O/S.  Here are some of our favourite looks (there are many)...

Melbourne Laneway Love

In a very cliché move, Chop Chop enjoyed a Melbourne Laneway moment last night on the way to a screening of Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton at ACMI.  No matter how mainstream Melbourne laneway culture might be now, the city can still surprise you with pretty views and new surprises.
