Warby Parker Review

Thursday, August 28, 2014

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!

  1. Oh I LOVE the idea of trying them on AT HOME before buying! I will check into this the next time someone in my family needs new glasses. I do understand about getting attached to a favorite frame however. Glad it worked out in the end!

    1. It's pretty awesome if you're a busy gal or want the longer decision period! I'm already looking to pick up another pair for around the house and out & about!
