Feelin’ shady? Or perhaps not shady enough? If so, head over to the Guns and Shades pop up shop in San Fran to pick up some vintage sunglasses (read: no one else is gonna have a pair quite like yours). The temporary boutique will feature retro frames from Mayfourteenth, a freshly-launched eyewear brand from famed photographer Benjamin Belsky, and will feature an assortment of dead stock vintage frames that include a rare pair of Cazal shades (remember those ones that your fave hip hop stars rocked in the 80s?) priced at $1,200.
Guns and Shades Pop-Up Shop
When: Open daily from 12-8 p.m. through July 14, 2010
Where: 252 Fillmore St., SF.
If you’re lucky, you might be able to cop a pair reminiscent of the iconic 80s photography of SampleSaleShop.com‘s good friend and neighbor Janette Beckman:

Shwood is a Portland, Oregon based design company of these handmade, all-wood-framed shades-
Shwood currently gets its lumber shipped in from sustainably-harvested operations in Africa.
All styles are available with a selection of variously-tinted polarized lenses, which reduce glare…so basically this chopped down tree will still give shade !!!

Remember Hot or Not dot com? Mixing prints is a big trend this spring. What do you think of Pharrell Williams’ outfit?
Skateboard P sported his own line, Billionaire Boys Club, at the 2010 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix. He paired the Distressed Print Hickory jacket and Digi-Camo 3/4 Cargo shorts, from BBC‘s spring/summer 2010 collection, with his Chanel denim sunglasses and Ice Cream sneakers.
We wonder if Pharrell is looking to sponsor any F1 cars. As part of the LidRock program, he sponsored Bill Lester’s No. 22 Toyota in NASCAR’s Craftsman Truck Series a few years ago.
Hot? Not? Undecided?
