Warby Parker

I love Warby Parker! Thanks to Mayra of Life is Bananas, I found out about this amazing online company that sells rad glasses. I love the style of frames. According to the site, "The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage-inspired, with a fashion forward twist - and every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses." Yes, please.


For a pair of prescription glasses with lenses it's $95 out the door. No shipping fees for the 48 continental U.S. states. AND for every pair bought, Warby Parker works with non-profits to donate a pair to someone in need. Now that's cool. It definitely made me want to buy from them that much more. Of course, the Home Try On service was a factor that also helped tremendously.

Get this - you select five frames, color and style, and they send you them to you to try on at home for free! That way you can get a feel for the ones you like best and show them off to your friends and get their opinions. Such a perk for an indecisive person like me!

After my Home Try On period, I decided that I wanted to order from Warby Parker and went with Zagg in Tennessee Whiskey. I placed my order on Tuesday, my prescription was verified Wednesday, and I had my glasses on Friday morning. That's super quick and impressive!



If you're in the market for a new pair of glasses (they also have sunglasses!), then I highly recommend Warby Parker. It's a great feeling to know that not only do you get to enjoy a rad new pair of glasses, but you helped someone else in need get a pair as well. Unfortunately, right now you can only buy them if you live in the U.S. but I'm sure they'll change real soon.
