The Warby Parker Experience: Part Two

They’re here! They’re here! And now for the second installment of my hunt for the perfect Warby Parker frames! If you would like to read about ordering my home try-ons, check out Part One. The frames I received were definitely worth more than $95 a pop. The quality matched that of a typical $250 pair of designer frames. I was very happy with my try-ons! Shall we?

The Warby Parker Experience: Part Two

If you aren’t in the know, Warby Parker basically has the coolest specs around. When I first saw their frames, I instantly thought, “This is the thing that will make me just like Rashida Jones!” They’ve got super cute vintage-style frames for both men and women that basically any hipster would die for. The best part? All their glasses are $95, including prescription lenses (+$30 for high index lenses for blinder bats like me). Their sunglasses are $150 with prescription lenses, and $95 without. The even bester part? When you buy a pair, they provide a pair to someone in need. They’re practically the Toms of eyewear. Now I’ve purchased my fair share of designer frames and dropped around $400 for one pair (I once bought two different ones at the same time, solely for matching outfit purposes, because I guess that’s the kind of person I am). So this sounds like heaven to me. Hell, when I told my mom about WP, she said I may as well buy two pairs because it’s so cheap! But I don’t think they’re cheap-cheap, iykwim. I’ve only heard good things about the quality and construction of WP frames. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered 5 frames to try on at home! Shipping both ways is totally free. How could you not?

The Early November have been one of my favorite bands since high school. I was finally able to see them live on their reunion tour this past June, and all of my 16 year-old dreams were fulfilled. Their latest release, “In Currents,” is hands down one of the best albums I’ve heard in a very […]
