Oh hey there – me again, Ms “unable-to-make-up-her-mind”. H officially broke my glasses forever ago, and I still can’t commit to a single frame, because I keep finding more that I love! I’ve been telling myself that I just need to suck it up and make a decision on which frames to buy, but then Warby Parker keeps releasing new ridiculously awesome frames and colors, and my indecision goes haywire!
This time around I tried five completely new Warby Parker frames for my At Home Try On program, in the most gorgeous colors: the Seymour in Tennessee Whiskey, the Daisy in Striped Molasses, the Sullivan in Saltwater Matte, the Chelsea in Whistler Grey and the Eaton in Tree Swallow Fade. Three of the frames were more of a rounded rectangle shape, while the last two were definite rectangle. The cheapie frames I’m currently wearing are more of an ‘out there’ shape, so I wanted to take it back to a shape I was comfortable with for every day wear.
These Seymour frames made me think of a super trendy boss lady who either runs an adorable Etsy print shop, or a woman who’s running a corporate office. They are very professional looking, but have a fun edge to them with the dual coloring, and seem like they would work on just about any face shape. My husband really liked these on me, as he has a big love for two toned frames, but I’m not sure how I feel about the clear bottoms?
These were perfectly light and airy, and it felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all – which was awesome. I love how dainty and feminine they are, without being overly cutesy, and the slender frames are just lovely all around. I like that these don’t jump out at you, but still have something a little extra with the rounded shape. These were definitely a favorite out of this At Home Try On box, and I think they fit my larger face shape really well.
I might actually be obsessed with these frames! I love the color, by far my favorite shade of all the Warby Parker colors that I’ve tried on, and the finish is incredible. It literally reminds me of a deep blue shard of sea glass, so they named this shade perfectly. One of the most fun things about these Sullivan frames are that the side arms are a gorgeous reddish-brown color, which I think looked really good with my hair (vain much?). These are definitely more bold in real life than in pictures online, but the color is so beautiful and soft and the lighter sides help tone down the intensity. The shape of the frames is kind of similar to a Wayfarer, but the smooth rectangular angles of the temples make it less harsh and a really fun, but not too crazy, frame.
When I saw the Chelsea in Whistler Grey I knew I had to try them on. Like the Finch glasses I tried on last time, they made me think of those super stylish secretaries from the Mad Men era, and they are so vintage chic its not even funny. I want Warby Parker to start offering more frames in this Whistler Grey color, because its even more amazing in real life, and the texture is ridiculously awesome (are you listening Warby Parker?!). So, while the frames aren’t a good fit for my wider size, I think this would be an adorable frame on a more petite face shape. This Chelsea frame is what the editors at Vogue magazine would pick out of a line up – they’re that classy and stylish.
Eaton frames in Tree Swallow Fade
Once again, this was another killer color combination choice by Warby Parker. I loved the Eaton’s dual-toned, almost watercolor looking blue and brown combination, and think the coloring would read make blue or brown eyes pop. The width of these frames is perfect for wider faces like my own – both rectangular and round, and while I normally don’t like the flatter brow line on my face shape, I think the lighter color makes the flat-ness less harsh. These were another definite favorite!
What do you think? Do you have a favorite one this go around? Or do you think they all missed the mark? Have you signed up for a Warby Parker At Home Try On Kit yet? (Did I mention it’s FREE?!)
