ever since i was about 9 years old, i’ve wanted glasses. i looked forward to every eye exam, desperately hoping to need readers. for years i bought “fashion” glasses (well before that was even a thing) and i was thrilled when i finally (finally!!) was prescribed a pair at age 21 or so.
for years i just selected from the limited options at my eye doctor’s office, finding something new that i was happy with each time, but always feeling under-whelmed at the choices, and even less excited about the amount of money i was shelling out to get said pair. then, about 4 years ago (ish) i was dragged out of my boring cycle when i discovered warby parker, and i’ve been a fan ever since.
my first experience was awesome – i selected 5 pairs through the free home try-on and loved 4 of them… deciding which to buy was fun, and the whole process was super easy. the glasses arrived quickly, and i was a happy reader for 2 years.
last year my hubby and i both needed new specs, so we visited the showroom in nyc, which was amazing! there were tons of samples to try on, plenty of mirrors to check myself out, and several helpful staff. we were able to place our orders right there!
it’s coming time for a new pair (yay!) and so i wanted to share warby parker’s new fall collection, which has several pairs that i’m lusting after (both men’s and women’s):
oh – and your purchase also does good: for every pair sold, wp distributes a pair to someone in need through non-profit partners. how’s that for guilt-free shopping?
now, tell me which pair i should get, and which one is your favorite!
