Sure, it's nice to share closets with (or even swipe tees from) the boys. But with Thom Browne's first women's eyewear collection, we've never been happier to keep these babies all to ourselves. The designer whose beautiful unisex frames were once flattering for both fellas and ladies, has (yet again) won us over, this time with a retro-inspired collection for fall '12.

Dita Legends Melrose, 7625 Melrose Avenue (by North Stanley Avenue); 323-658-7078.
