Mirror, Mirror: Silhouette’s Virtual Mirror and Sunglasses Giveaway!

March 19, 2009 • Lifestyle


Temps are rising, and before the agony that is swimsuit-shopping comes the frustration that is sunglasses-shopping. There's nothing to push up or suck in, but I still end up leaving stores frustrated and empty-handed.

Silhouette–the purveyor of lightweight, rimless, nearly indestructible glasses–makes the process easy and painless with their new Virtual Mirror, an interactive tool that that lets you upload images of your face and "try on" sunglasses, changing the lens color and rim shape till you find one that suits. You can also use it to build the perfect prescription glasses: Choose from more than 400 customizable options by picking your base model, accent colors and lens shape. Their rimless styles are incredibly transparent, so people notice your face–not your glasses. (Bonus: your brow wax and expert eyeshadow application will not be in vain!)

Second City Style Giveaway!!


To get you prepped for beach season (as painlessly as possible), Second City Style is giving away a pair of Silhouette sunglasses (pictured above) to a lucky reader! (US and Canada only)

All you have to do is leave a comment to this post why you need new sunglasses with your email address, and we will pick and announce the winners next Friday!
