{spring break} spectacles

my box of vintage inspired glasses from the warby parker home try-on program arrived today...



i spent an evening during spring break choosing five pairs of spectacles that i wanted to put on my face...




it was so much fun to try them on at home today + model them for kevwrex.

of course, i added ridiculous character behavior + a runway style performance purely for our amusement.

side note: there is rarely a dull moment when one lives with a lady of the stage.

we both voted on the pair in the front...


warby parker is a very cool company + concept...
  • funky vintage inspired frames
  • virtual try-on software for experimenting online
  • home try-on program: five pairs shipped both ways for free with no obligation to buy
  • $95 includes everything: frames, lenses, + shipping
  • a pair is donated to someone in need for each pair sold
this whole process eliminated the weird anxiety i have about shopping for glasses. frame shops have always made me feel squicky, like i'm in a high-pressure car dealership. warby parker made it a fun, easy, feel-good deal for me.

my eyeballs are going to be so happy to wear some new specs.

I love the idea. I keep on meaning to send for some try-ons, but I always forget. (The curse of ADHD!) I can't wait to see them on you.

Okay! I just did it. I ordered 5 try-at-home pairs. Yay! I can't wait 'til they come.
