Yes, Yes! Get excited! So last week I FINALLY decided to try out Warby Parker's Home Try-On. And it was awesome. I am new to the prescription family and am not a fan of my contacts at all, but the ridiculous prices for prescription glasses have averted me from trying out a pair of nice specs. I am no stranger to the Warby Parker advertisements online, but I can admit I was always a bit skeptical of such a great deal. Last month I was out and complimented this young lady's glasses and she told me she purchased them from Warby Parker! After that I knew I had to give them a try.
A five day FREE home try-on with 5 frames...sounds like there must be a catch. Let me tell you..there is no catch. You just need to venture over to their website, warbyparker.com, select 5 pairs, enter your info, & boom! You'll have your specs in no time. I believe mine arrived in 3 days. Oh, yeah I almost forgot to tell you! The company covers shipping...both ways.
My favorite part about this was being able to receive feedback from friends, family and strangers on the frames I had chosen. Unlike typical retail eyewear stores, Warby Parker allots you plenty of time to get a feel for the frames before you make such a big purchase.
For my fab five, I chose three pairs that were a bit more conservative and two that were completely off the wall. I didn't plan on falling in love with the two unique pairs so much, but I did. The clear frames were darling. I knew I would love them, but I didn't think they would love me back. That pair is in the style Nash 'Crystal', but the pair that took the cake were the Kimball in "Marzipan Tortoise". I was a bit skeptical about these, but I decided to suck it up and be bold and wear them once to work and also out with my girly, Kimberly. Both times I received plenty of compliments on the tortoise frames. Those compliments and inquiries about where I got them from definitely solidified them as the specs for me. Sometimes it takes the opinion of others to really know what looks good on us, you know.
There is no doubt I will be purchasing a pair or two of these fab five frames from Warby Parker. The best part is definitely the price point for the frames. Majority of their frames are just $95, which includes the prescription! Also when a pair of glasses are purchased, WP gives a pair to someone in need :)
I can't wait to sport my new frames this season! They totally had me feeling a bit spunkier than usual. Whether I was dressed up or dressed down the compliments I received from the Warby Parker glasses put some pizzaz in my step.
