I have been severely lacking a proper pair of glasses for months now. I broke my favorite pair a while back, literally snapped in half, and after a failed attempt to repair them, harry potter tape style, I relented to throwing them in the trash bin. I was so disappointed that I had broken my favorite pair that I didn’t even bother to replace them. I chose to instead wear my contacts for as long as I possibly could during the day. That was not a good plan. It led to some very dry, very tired eyes and a whole lot of squinting when I didn’t have them in.
After some serious nudging from my boyfriend, I decided to test out Warby Parker, a glasses company that sells most of their product online and lets you do a home try on to choose your frames. The online part certainly scared me, but the premise was very simple. I got to choose out 5 pairs of frames from their online shop and they would send all 5 to me for a 5 day home test run. No charge, no stresses, if I didn’t like any of the frames, I could simply send them back, no harm done. I loved being able to test out all 5 frames for so many days. I constantly found myself running to the mirror in the morning checking out the different pairs to decide which worked best. I finally narrowed it down to two favorites, the Finch in Violet Magnolia & the Sims in Striped Sassafrass. I wish I could’ve bought them both I loved the frames so much, but alas I could choose only one to buy. I finally decided on the Sims since they would work best for working in my office and I wanted the Finch for hanging at home and for out and about. They arrived and I couldn’t have been happier with my purchase! Warby Parker does such a good job helping you make the decision that you’re actually excited to get your pair of glasses and show them off.
These are the other glasses I tested out. I so want to get the Finch next time. They were so cute!
Neat thing! For every pair of glasses bought, Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to someone in need, cool right? Have you tried our Warby Parker? Was your experience as good as mine? Let me know in the comments below!
