Former Lawyer Thinks of Perfect Name for Her Optical Store, Makes Career Change a Reality

But she still needed a name, the Tulsa World explains.

Then it hit her suddenly: Eye Candy Eyewear.

“It was like I hit the mother lode,” Denslow said.

She strives to make the store a destination both for its relaxed atmosphere and its selection of products.

“Tom Ford and Prada are the only name brands we have — everything else is independent,” she told the Tulsa World.
