Fred Segal Santa Monica got their very own eyewear emporium a few short weeks ago. Since we're totally OCD about the Fred Segal sale, we popped in to check it out. The Spectacle is actually a wee little boutique, but they've got a good selection from names like Paul Smith, Barton Perreira, Oliver People, and Moscot, among others. For the duration of the sale (ends this week), many of those glasses are 50% off. They're also working with a philanthropic organization and doing a promotion a la Toms: buy a pair of eyeglasses and The Spectacle will donate a pair to a nonprofit that arranges for underprivileged schoolchildren in Mexico to get eye exams and glasses. Awwww!
