See Summer Better with Warby Parker
I have been a huge fan of Warby Parker for four years now. I love that Warby Parker was founded based on a personal experience. One of the co-founders lost his glasses while he was in college, and he quickly learned that glasses are expensive. So, Warby Parker was founded to provide an alternative: designer eyewear at not-so-designer prices.
In addition to working to ensure their prices are affordable, Warby Parker is also committed to being socially-conscious. According to Warby Parker's website, approximately 15 percent of the world's population doesn't have access to the eyewear they need. Warby Parker partners with nonprofits like VisionSpring to get a pair of glasses to someone in need for every Warby Parker purchase. That's a business model I can get behind.
Don't live near a Warby Parker store? You're in luck. Warby Parker gives you the opportunity to try on select frames through at-home try-on. All you do is pick out five frames, and they ship the frames to you. You have five days to try them on (and take Snapchat selfies, like I did, so friends can help you out), and then you send the frames back (WP pays for shipping) and order the ones you love. Also, I didn't have my prescription handy, so Warby Parker called my optometrist to get my prescription for me. So. easy.
I love my Ripley glasses pictured below. I've never owned a pair of glasses like these, and honestly, when I picked them for my at-home try-on, I only picked them for fun, not thinking I would actually want to buy them. But, I fell in love, and these were the frames I went with!
I am thrilled to help Warby Parker introduce its summer line. I know I can't wait for the days to feel longer, lake trips with my girlfriends, and long weekends fill with tons of vitamin D (complete with sunscreen, of course), and what better way to welcome summer than with a new pair of shades?
I am obsessed with the Tilley and Hattie frames. I've never been one to go for frames like the Tilley, but I love the vintage, 1950s look (I sometimes wish I was young in the 50s, at least for a day). I also love the girly and classic feel to the Hattie frames. Even though the frames are a bit lighter, these seem like a pair of sunglasses I would wear all year long.
What do you think of the crystal frames trend? I have always been a fan, but I never felt that I could pull them off. When I tried on my frames from my at-home try-on, I requested a pair of crystal frames, and I loved them, but I was too afraid to commit. Maybe I should give the crystal sunglasses a chance. The Reilly frames are perfect!
