Boutique Spotlight: Cateye Spectacles in Hollywood
Being a huge fan of anything vintage and vintage inspired, it was a given that I would step into Cateye Spectacles, a boutique specializing in vintage, vintage inspired and living deadstock eyewear. Owner Sung Kim opened his doors to Los Angeles two and a half years ago in East Hollywood.
