SunglasstrioYou may remember, if you are a loyal reader, that one month ago I took a direct hit to the eye with a tennis ball. Enough said about that.

Last week I went in for my second round of what I termed water-boarding while Dr. Whitecoat stifled a chuckle. Here is where I am: the wormlike floater is still floating around, no shock there. Sensitivity to light, still sucks, again no shocker. Second round diagnosis? My eyeball has a concussion, and it may not work up-to-par for two more months – ugh. Treatment? Avoid bright lights. Seriously, my days of aluminum foiled album covers and iodine are over, but Doc, have you seen how white my legs are? I definitely need a bit of Vitamin D!

The more I squawked, the closer he came with those granny black wrap-around sunglasses. No charge, he said. No shit, who would pay for those? The only thing missing was the bejeweled cord so I could pull double-duty and wear them as a necklace. What’s next, Depends?

Boy, did I get the heck out of Dodge. The good news is that in my business I actually read the style rag sheets and I was somewhat consciously aware that there were fashionable alternatives like Warby Parker out there.

So I decided to follow my own previous advice here last month and utilize the Virtual Try-On services at Warby Parker. Their tagline is simply lovely, meticulously crafted eyewear starting at $95.00. They have one of the best virtual try on software programs, although they couldn’t seem to do anything virtual about my nose.

So now I need you to be my stylist and chime in below with what looks good or would look better on another mug – maybe yours!

The process starts with picking the shape
Round / Square / Rectangle

The next step – picking the width
Narrow / Medium / Wide

Next, pick the material
Acetate / Metal

And last but not least, pick the color, of which there are 12!

Tortoise, blue, brown, purple, black, two-tone, grey, gold, green, silver, red and crystal – how do you spell wowser?

What do you think?  Let me know!eyewear

Need some style advice on your eyewear selection? Upload your pic to the Warby Parker site, take a screen shot and share it with me at Doreen@DoreenDove.com. Happy to give you my opinion, but be sure to give me yours first!

And by all means, don’t forget Mother’s Day!
