Warby Parker Home Try On
But I am also posting here. Because it's my hot blog and I do what I want.
Warby Parker is great--really good-looking frames, and really affordable (most are $95 including prescription). They let you pick out five frames to be sent to your home (for FREE) for a five-day trial, with no pressure to purchase. AND for every pair of glasses you buy they donate a pair to someone in need. Although according to their website, the program is WAY BETTER than just dumping a bunch of glasses in a poor neighborhood in the third world. They work with nonprofit VisionSpring to train optometrists and entrepreneurs--it's really a bout community building.
Anyway, I'm trying to decide on a pair of frames to buy. So help me out.
I'm going to the optometrist next Saturday (for the first time in two years, oops) and I'm fairly certain I need a new prescription. So I'm excited to purchase some nifty new frames.
Every time I think I've decided on one (or narrowed it down) I change my mind.
Let me know what you think!
(Also, please note that nowhere in this post --uh except here of course-- did I say anything about librarians and glasses. Because guess what people--wearing glasses does not make you "look" like a librarian!)
