So it's true: Hindsight really is 20/20.

You know this because it occurred to you too late that you should have taken your reading glasses on that fancy date. (Sure, those bifocals are unattractive. But not as bad as making your waiter read the entire menu to you.)

Next time, think (and look) ahead with a pair of Eyemusement reading glasses, a new collection of frames that addresses both your vision and fashion needs. With every purchase, they'll make a donation to Doctors Without Borders.

Twin Citians Mary Jane Pappas and Susan Moore created the frames with simplified lines and classic, sometimes vibrant colors.

There are also sunglasses and nifty colliers (for keeping those glasses around your neck) by local artists Helen Wang and Talin Spring. So you'll be set for all kinds of situations in which both reading and looking good are the order of the day.

Let's hope it's more often than not.

Eyemusement, $90 per pair, available online and at Guild, 4414 Excelsior Blvd, St. Louis Park, 952-378-1815.
