Sinclair and Preston Glasses from Warby Parker

Warby Parker just came out with a slew of new glasses styles and they sent a few over for me to try. These two are my favorites. What do you think?



Also, I think sleeplessness agrees with me. I got about two hours of sleep the night before I took these photos. (Having a newborn will do that to you.)

* update: I’m being sent a pair of each, yay!

    Love them, I got a similar pair and also a pair of pink cateye ones a la grease. You can see the quick video here:

    I thought you’d love em since you also love a vintage look!

    I love the first pait!
    But I am biased because I just bought these for myself. I got the tortoiseshell ones (or whatever they are calling the brown ones). But the black frames really suit you.

    You look beautiful!! Your hair (did you get a haircut? cut your bangs differently? or is it just that is up?) looks great! Oh, yeah…the glasses! Both look really good on you. If I had to choose one pair, it would be the second one…

      The lipstick is Mac Lady Danger, but it looks nothing like it does in the photos above. It’s a much more vivid orange-red.

    I like the Preston best, but I suppose I’m just not into rounder frames like the Sinclair, generally. I have the clear Webb and the black Finn frames from WP! I want to get a pair of the tangerine frames for summertime, too.

  • Kristina
    February 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    Love both, but the second pair seem less trendy, so you could rock them longer.

    Looking so good on two hours of sleep is, I think, a function of age. :)

    Hmm…are you being reimbursed for your recommendations by Warby Parker (i.e., are they giving you free glasses)? I like to know how/if reviewers are being compensated before considering their reviews…thanks!

    • Making it Lovely
      February 22, 2011 at 8:47 am

      Well, the answer is sort of. I had written about Warby Parker before, so they wrote to me a couple of weeks ago to ask if I’d like to see the newest styles before they went up on the site. Sounded like fun, so I said yes. Then I fell in love with the two styles that I showed above, and they are letting me have one of each (yay!). But I didn’t know that when I was writing this post.

      • Noni
        February 22, 2011 at 10:03 am

        I was curious about your compensation, too. From now on, it would probably be a good idea to let us know when you’re being perk’d for something that you’re writing about…

      • Making it Lovely
        February 22, 2011 at 10:10 am

        Yes, I’m always transparent about my relationships. As I said, I hadn’t been compensated at the time I wrote the post, so I’m clarifying here in the comments that that had changed afterward. They are giving me the glasses as a thank you (the people at Warby Parker are really very nice).
