Solar Shades are Hip for Baby Boomer Divas

Recently, I was invited to try a new style of sunglasses offered by Solar Shield®. The sunglasses are designed to be worn over your own prescription frames and provide ultimate sun protection for eyeglass wearers. There were more than a dozen to choose from. Since red is my signature color I chose the designer temples.

I tried them on first without my eyeglasses and knew I was looking cute! Then I tested them with my prescription glasses. Sadly, they did not fit over my Michael Kors. That brings me to this point: When shopping for sunglasses, it may be wise to actually try them on instead of purchasing them without knowing specifically if it will be the right fit and style for your face. I'm sure if I had purchased them, the Company would've reimbursed me or allowed me to select another pair.

If you are planning to make a purchase of the solar shades, my recommendation would be to contact the Company directly FIRST to make sure you are ordering the right size for your prescription glasses. And they make it easy for you on their website:

Customer Service: 800.959.9038
Live representative available from 8:00am-5:00pm EST

Even if you don't get the sunglasses, you can also buy some Solar Shield® ClipOns and they also have a sizing guide on their website to help you find the correct fit.

I still absolutely love the solar shades I received from Solar Shield® and I will be sporting them while hanging out in the sun. No one has to know whether I can truly see or not. I just want to look like a cute and hip baby boomer diva!

Please note: I was offered compensation for my review of this product as a member of the Vibrant Nation Influencer Network.

It took a while for me to figure out why I was unable to find the comment button, but as is obvious, I did find it. Please ignore my comment in my response to you over at my blog.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I hope that you will make it a habit. I will visit this blog regularly henceforth.

I have been shortsighted since my teen years and have worn spectacles for the whole of the rest of my life. I now wear bifocals and use a special one for the computer viewing. I did try the clip on a few times but was most uncomfortable with distorted vission and eventually settled for photo-chromatic ones.

In any case, I live in India!
