great find: WARBY PARKER

My glasses are my thing. Having to wear glasses since the age of 6 years old, I've always embraced them and was never the kid who'd hide their glasses in their book bag at school to avoid being teased. I actually like wearing glasses - however, I did have a small meltdown about them in preparation for my wedding day (which is so dumb when I look back on it). Having said that, I can't imagine the amount of money that has been spent on my glasses over the past 18 years. The "affordable" options always looked horrendous - I'd always gravitate towards the designer frames. Couple that with my horrible eyesight and always having to speacial order my lenses - glasses can easily run me about $500 (worse case scenario).

The folks over at Warby Parker have come up with an affordable solution - $95 frames (depending on eyesight, there is a fee for lens). Artisan crafted and vintage inspired - these styles are right up my ally. The cool thing about the company, is that you can choose 5 styles to have sent to you and try them out for a few days - glasses are returned to the company via pre-paid shipping. How cool is that?

Sticking to my thick black frame - nerd aesthetic, here are the ones I've chosen to try...
...well, I threw the Crosby in there just to try something different. When my trial pairs arrive, I'll post photos so that you can help me decide.

Happy 11.11.11
hope you made a wish at 11am

Thank you for this post! After my Armani frames were "misplaced" after only a week of wearing them to work, I am searching for decent prescription choices. I love the shape on these, and they are far less expensive than the $350 I paid for my last pair. I, too am proud to be Four Eyes. Wear them with honor!
