Monday, November 19


Happy Monday! Hope everyone had the best weekend and has safe travels this week! This post today is for all my glasses wearing friends (but non-glasses wearers can enjoy as well!) as I introduce my newfound obsession: Warby Parker

I've had the same glasses since probably about freshman year, maybe earlier. They are in good shape, I've had my lenses changed once so I'm not walking around blind, but you know when you just don't like them anymore? That's where I am at. Most people probably have no clue I wear glasses because I literally never wear mine until I'm going to bed or waking up. I think after 6+ years, I can get a new pair. But this is the problem with glasses - it is SO hard to find a pair of frames that I actually like, at a reasonable price. 

Enter Warby Parker. A couple of friends decided that the eyewear industry was monopolized by a few large companies, keeping prices insanely high when they don't need to be. Every pair of glasses - frames AND lenses!!! - retail for $95. No more, no less. Since it's pretty much online based - with the exception of a few showrooms scattered across the nation, Warby Parker will send 5 frames of your choosing home to try on - for free. Once you select your frames, it's easy. You submit your lens prescription and BAM. New pair of glasses in 5-10 days. But what I really love is their mission. For every pair of glasses they sell, they donate a pair to a person in need. According to their site, almost 1 billion people in the world are without glasses, and they believe that everyone in the world deserves to see. Don't you?! I haven't ordered my glasses yet, but when I do, I'll let you know how they turn out. And if you're in the market for some new specs, try Warby Parker. Awesome price, awesome frames, awesome mission.
