I am a really indecisive person (hence why I’m on box 5 and still can’t make up my mind), so Warby Parker’s “try before you buy” premise is awesome. I am able to scour their website and preview all of their available frames to make a list of each one I might like, and I can keep it up for as long as I so choose. This month I chose 5 pairs: Bensen frame in Belize Blue, Laurel in Tea Rose Fade, Nash in Greystone, Jennings in Striped Beach, and Topper in Whiskey Tortoise, added them to my cart, and checked out – all FO FREE. Yep, that’s right. Zero dollars.
The Topper frame eyeglasses were a valiant effort in my husband’s quest to have me find a pair of super quirky vintage frames, but alas I just don’t think they’re very flattering on me. These are technically a medium frame, but are on the smaller side, so I think my face size is a little too large. I liked that the Topper doesn’t have round lenses, but they aren’t square either: it’s a combination of a mostly circular frame, with some surprise angles cut in. Because these require a second look to really see everything they have to offer, the Topper is whimsical and unconventional and makes a bold statement, without being too in your face.
My favorites this time around were the Laurel (no surprise), Nash and Jennings, but there was something I liked about each frame that I tried.
If you’re in the market for new frames, but are short on time to go to your local glasses shops, then you need to check out Warby Parker!
Because of their At Home Try On program, I have a whole list of frames in an assortment of different colors and shapes that I never would have been able to try on otherwise. There is so much to love about Warby Parker’s service: getting 5 days to try on glasses in the comfort (and lighting!) of your own home, free shipping both ways, the philanthropic mission to provide a pair of glasses for someone in need for every pair that’s sold, and the affordability, there’s really nothing to lose out on by giving their At Home Try On program a try!
