Warby Parker Try On

I started wearing glasses when I was 7 years old because it was then that I found out that I'm blind in my left eye. I could wear a monocle, but I just don't think I could rock it, so that's why I stick with glasses. I've had my current frames for 3 years (has it really been that long??) and it is definitely time for a change.

I decided to finally check out Warby Parker. If you live in the United States and Puerto Rico you can choose 5 pairs to try at home for free for 5 days. This appealed to me because:
  • I wouldn't really be rushed like I usually am at the optometrist 
  • There wouldn't be an optometrist staring at me while I looked at myself in the mirror from every angle 
  • I could try on glasses in natural light and not in harsh fluorescent lighting
  • I can try them out with different hairstyles and makeup looks
  • I didn't have to leave my house (hey, I'm being honest)
  • If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know how fond I am of free things
Once the 5 days is up, I have to send the glasses back. If I decide to purchase any of them, I just have to include my prescription and pupillary distance when I place my order.

I'm definitely not feelin' Nash. I think I just ordered those because I was curious. My two favorites right now are Ripley and Laurel. 

On second thought, I could totally rock a monocle.

Which frames do you like the best? Have you ever tried Warby Parker?

  1. I'm so sorry to hear that about your left eye! But it looks like you're rocking those glasses, and this sounds like an amazing service!

  2. These all look fab on you, love the second ones, they really suit you! Wish we had this company in the UK, choosing glasses is so stressful!
