New Glasses?

I’ve been wanting a pair of new glasses lately, so I thought I’d give Warby Parker a try. You get a pair of glasses with lenses for $95, and if you can try them out for free first. Sweet.

I really wanted the Fillmore style to work (remember, I included them in August’s style post?). I was hoping they’d be geeky-cool, but I don’t know if they work for me.

My shop assistant Erika tried them on and when I told her I liked them on her, she was incredulous. Her exact response: “Really? This is like the ‘before’ part of a makeover!”

So then I tried the Japhy frames because they come in pink, but I had to try them on in black because they aren’t sending out the limited edition colors to try. Yay? Nay? I think they’re nice, but a little average. Getting them in pink might fix that though.

And now I’m thinking I might like the Harper glasses in green, but I didn’t select those for my home try-on. Then of course, there are the free glasses… You know, the ones I’m already rocking. But where’s the fun in that, right?

I have to send back my trial glasses tomorrow, so I’m trying to make a decision. Seen any other cute glasses I should consider? Or do you like one of the pairs above?

    I really like the ones you currently have. I wish I could rock the thick lenses, but my face is too small.

    PLUS keeping those (and spending less) means more $$ for the baby boy you’re growing inside of you.

    Hey! I had SEE glasses, but recently switched to Warby Parker. It seems like we both tried on the same 5 pairs. I ultimately went with Zagg in Striped Chestnut. I love them. 100% satisfied.

    Good luck!

    I don’t really know. But that lipstick looks really good on you. Is that the perfect shade you came upon? Love it either way.

    I think the pink would be super cute and spunky! Take it from a gal that wears glasses… Go for a funky color!
