As I get older, there are few things I’m realizing about life. Stuff like wearing excruciating shoes just aren’t worth it, and that there’s just no excuse for walking around not being able to see things clearly in the name of beauty and fashion.
I’ve worn glasses pretty much my entire life, but even my closest friends can probably count on one hand the number of times they’ve actually seen them on my face in my post-elementary school years. As I got older I always thought they made me look a little nerdy or that they covered up my great facial features.
I’ve gotten to a point though that not being able to read street signs or recognize people out and about unless they’re right in front of me is no longer a sacrifice I’m willing to make, nor do I have to for the sake of style these days.
Enter Warby Parker. I’m sure you’ve all heard about this great brand that delivers affordable prescription glasses for only $95 for frames and lenses combined, in nearly 100 stylish & fashionable frames. The other week I went to their NYC store to pick up a new pair to rotate in.
I’m loving my new clear Warby Parker glasses called the “Nash”. I feel like the clear frames and the shape still allow my best features to shine through, and they’re pretty stylish and on-trend at the moment.
I’ll be switching them in with my old Warby Parker frames, the “Colton”. See how the frames each lend themselves to an entirely different look.
I also picked up a pair of Warby Parker sunglasses while I was shopping too (non-prescription). These are the “Percy” I’m really feeling the retro-meets-classic shape of these frames. And now that the sun is starting to consistently shine here in NYC, they came at the perfect time.
One of the best things about Warby Parker is that even if they don’t have a brick & mortar store in your area, you can still find the perfect frames for you right at home. All you have to do is go online to www.WarbyParker.com and select up to 4 frames you want to have sent to your doorstep to try on in real life. Once you decide which fram you like, simply ship them back in the pre-paid box, input your prescription from your regular eye doctor on Warby Parker’s website, and in a few days your own custom glasses will be delivered directly to you.
Convenient, fashionable and affordable. What more could a girl ask for!
