Here's what's piquing our interest this week:

Diane, remember how much we loved March in SF when you were in town last fall and how we wanted to buy everything (but you were so admirably restrained)? They're having a sale from January 30 to February 13.

• Sarah's considering the compellingly priced (and well designed) sunglasses at Warby Parker. Great selection; which pair to buy?

• Stacey and Christine visited the LA headquarters of Dosa and got a glimpse of the spring collection coming out next month (hint: indigo is involved). For readers in NY, the Dosa Warehouse Sale is next weekend from Friday, February 1 to Sunday, February 3 at 628 Broadway, Suite 392. (Also see our Shopper's Diary).

• Admiring Atelier Workshop's portable renovated shipping container house.

• Checking out these five tips for getting through a move.

* Our LA friends Estee Stanley and Jenni Kayne have launched a toddler version of the Sartorialist; check it out at Ladys & Gents. Darling.

• Charmed by this video on Irish Folk Furniture.

• An elegant storage system from Swiss designer Lucien Gumy; interlocking shelves that don't require screws, glue, or tools.

• Finally, to wrap up our bookworm week, if you have ever wondered why books smell, this video explains why.
