Eyewear & Milkshakes at Dilly Diner

We recently held a photoshoot at one of our favorite Tulsa diners, the Dilly Diner, and it was so much fun!  We partnered up with our friends at Black Sheep Boutique who sent the adorable Jayne.  I had the best time styling her in over ten unique eyewear looks for this photoshoot.  I have published some of my favorites in this post including a shot of myself wearing a great looking Tom Davies frame.  Don't be afraid to play with color in your wardrobe.  This pink cat eye looks amazing when paired with denim.      Shown above:  Dyker Heights by Born In Brooklyn    A matte black frame can be so versatile.

Face A Face Meyer 2

Putting Your Transitions Lenses In The Freezer

Have you ever been told that Transitions lenses need to be put into the freezer in order to be “Activated”?  This myth just doesn’t seem to go away.  I first heard it about fifteen years ago, when one of my customers had asked me if their new Transitions lenses needed to be put in the freezer overnight in order to be activated.  I thought it sounded a little strange, but I checked it out and discovered it was not true.  I can’t remember the last time I got this question in my store, but I began thinking about it recently and a quick google search revealed a blog post with lots of comments from glasses wearers reporting that their optician...
