ASOS Tailored Pencil DressWe'll forever love the indispensable LBD, but spring definitely calls for something lighter and more playful. This sleek pencil dress fits the bill nicely, offering elegance and a distinctly retro vibe. The softly draped cowl neck and warm nude-peach hue are all sweetness and light, but the back zip and body-con fit are decidedly more risque. It's also available in black - the perfect choice for year round wear.

When was the last time you tried on new eyeglasses at home? Pearle Vision is helping you do just that with its unique new Try-On Tool. Making the process of finding your perfect frame less overwhelming, you can now try on a wide variety of glasses in different shapes and styles virtually.

To use the tool, start by taking a style quiz to get frame recommendations based on your face shape, lifestyle, etc. Then, upload a photo of yourself (or choose a model's image) to virtually try on eyeglasses. After you've selected your favorites, you can post your photo to Facebook or add them to a Voting Gallery to compare styles and let friends pick their favorites. Once finished, you can print out a list of your favorite frames to take to your local Pearle Vision store.

Since I'm on the hunt for some new frames, I gave the Try-On Tool a test drive. Not only was it incredibly easy, but it was also fun! I often find it difficult to try on glasses in a store since it's hard to get a good view of yourself. This is actually a much better way to choose a style since you can get a better visual of how you look in a pair of glasses - and also how you'll look in photos and to other people. I also love that you can get friends' opinions before making the commitment to buy a pair of glasses.

In addition to finding it easy to use, I was also rather impressed with the range of brands available including DKNY, Prada, and Burberry. Below are some of my top choices, let me know what you think!
