I was recently telling a good friend of mine that I needed to get some new eye glasses and she told me about this website called Warby Parker.
"Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and
a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically
crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point."
So I thought I would check it out. I went to their website and from there you can either upload a picture of yourself and do a virtual try on of their many optical styles OR you can pick 5 pairs and have them shipped to you to try on at home. Shipping to you and back to them is completely FREE and you have 5 days to try them on, show your friends and act like a nerd...ha! Once you decide on a pair, you can fax or email them your prescription and place your order and for only $95.00 you have yourself a boutique looking pair of spectacles! WOW!
Also, they have partnered up with Restoringvision.org, so whenever you purchase a pair, they give a pair to someone in need...um cool!
And, I love how they got their name...
"We’ve always been inspired by the master wordsmith and pop culture icon, Mr. Jack Kerouac. Two of his earliest characters, recently uncovered in his personal journals, bore the names Zagg Parker and Warby Pepper. We took the best from each and made it our name".
So, my box arrived a few days ago and I've been busy nerding out and trying to figure out which ones I like best....I need your help though...which ones do you like???
(these are the ones I'm leaning towards)
(um, Hello Harry Potter)
