Sacha Baumann is an artist and designer living and working in Los Angeles.

The fact is (I need you)

I have been freed from my contact lens prison. The glasses work and the gushing receptionist is right, they are super cute.

Yes, she can make a pair of frames, that Vera Wang. And I can wear them. It's a littlehard to avoid that sexy librarian thing, but oh well. There are worse looks to have.

True, Tom Cruise is so yuck. He always makes me think of a friend who quit working on Vanilla Sky because she couldn't stand the weeks of looking at his face everyday for fourteen hours a day. Boy was that a good decision too, the flix sucked. (Except for maybe the opening scene with an empty Times Square and that bitchin' car he drove.)

But Michael Mann--I just cannot resist him. His eye is so distinct and gorgeous, I fall in love with what it sees.

Restless eyes
