There are two things in this world that I truly dislike shopping for. The first is swimsuits and lingerie, which go hand in hand in my opinion. Not a big surprise, right? Or at least I'm hoping that others have issues with this, so that I'm not the only one. Don't get me wrong, I've gotten a bit better about it as I've gotten older. I play up what little strengths I have and downplay all that is bad.
But the other thing that I really dislike shopping for is sunglasses. Crazy, I know. I love looking at all of the different styles of sunglasses out there, but when it comes to actually trying them on, it's almost a bad as swimsuit/lingerie shopping. Let me explain. I've got a pretty wide face and little-to-no nose bridge, so it really narrows my options in terms of what will fit my face comfortably. And the area around my sinuses are extra sensitive, meaning I can't really wear anything too heavy or else I start getting headaches. Wow, I sound pretty pathetic here, huh? But sadly, it's the truth. Whenever I see sunglasses that I love, more often than not, they just never fit properly. When you add the fact that you normally have a salesperson helping you try on sunglasses, it's never good for your self-esteem when they also see your flaws too.
Well, luckily for me (and you), DITTO, an online resource of designer glasses & sunglasses, has come to the rescue with their virtual try-on technology. They've got an amazing selection and I seriously can't tell you how much fun it is to try-on glasses now. The process is extremely simple and easy - they provide step by step instructions on how to take your picture with your web cam through their site all the way to adding scale to make sure the sunglasses really do fit your face. With their virtual try-on technology, I was able to find these fabulous Elizabeth and James Fillmore sunglasses in Tortoise.
It doesn't get any better than this, now I wish they'd come up with something like this for swimsuit shopping...
