When I was chatting with Nancy, the owner of Uber Optics, I asked if she put together lookbooks for her shop, and she said no. But upon perusing her Facebook page, I realized that Nancy's frequent portraits of her customers comprise an ever-growing, real-life lookbook. This post is a compilation of my favorites.

I named this post after one by Rebecca Stice.
But let's get back to snazzy portraits of snazzy people wearing snazzy glasses:
