Stay Glassy

Today's post is a little different, it's about being chic, stylish, and classy glassy. If unlike me you are not a glassy person don't stop reading, this post is still for you! 

A couple of months back I went to the optometrist and she told me my eyesight was getting worse because of my overuse of contact lenses. Given that I have been wearing contact lenses since I was twelve and rarely take them off it made sense to me. So in March I went on the virtual journey to find the perfect set of glasses that I would feel chic, smart, and stylish in. This is how I encountered Warby Parker and they are the sole reason behind my post today.

 Warby Parker specializes in eyewear (both prescribed and non-prescribed glasses and sunglasses). Their concept:

"Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point." 

Um, hello, this is exactly what I had been searching for! I've always wanted "cool" glasses, but designer frames can cost you up to $400. I want to be able to change my glasses at minimum annually and not feel like I have burnt a hole in my wallet by doing so each time. Warby Parker does just this by providing high quality, custom-fit glasses with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescriptive (or non) lenses.

Now, let's get to my favorite part...if I haven't convinced you by now to go check out Warby Parker then you need to know that they are all about giving. Worldwide almost one billion people lack access to glasses. This means that 15% of the population cannot effectively learn or work. Warby Parker ensures that for every pair of glasses (sunglasses too!) that is sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. (Read more here).
Let's sum up why you should give Warby Parker a try:
  • Affordable 
  • High Quality 
  • Glasses and Sunglasses (prescribed or non-prescribed) 
  • Free Shipping
  • At Home Try-On w/amazing feedback and customer service on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram
I used the Home Try-On Program! 

The Meridian collection launches today! It's perfect for summer, perfect for traveling. You can get these designer quality frames in time for your next vacation. Who doesn't love a classic aviator?! Oh, and not to mention they look good on both men & women. Prescription or non-prescription, your sunglasses are still going to be a fraction of what you would pay for designer.

The Raskin with a larger lens & wider frame available in Polished Gold and Jet Silver 
The Flannery is a medium fit pair also available in Polished Gold and Jet Silver.  I especially love the tortoise detail on the Jet Silver Flannery! 

Can't decide what pair would look best? Keep in mind that you can choose all three styles in more than one color for your Home Try-On now! 

Happy shopping.

  1. Well since u did all the research I might look into it now

  2. Honestly, I have always LOVED glasses! Everyone looks better with them on. Sadly, I have 20/20, and would be too embarrassed to be one of those people who wears fake glasses. But when the time comes, I will be sure to check Warby Parker out!

    Your glasses are too stinkin' cute on you!!
