I’ve worn glasses since I was in 3rd grade. I still remember taking the eye test at school, and getting the letter to give to my parents. I was so scared I would get in trouble (my mom always told me not to read in the dark and I never listened) so I tried to hide it for the longest time. They found the letter though and took me to get my first pair of glasses. I probably should have shown them sooner, cause turns out, I had really bad eyes. So ever since then, I’ve worn glasses.

Throughout the years, I’ve found that glasses, although sometimes annoying (especially when you want to put on non-prescription sunglasses), tend to be more convenient. I wear glasses more often, and save contacts for days where I feel like making a little more effort.

Until I was 22, I changed my glasses once in high school and didn’t think twice about them. Now that I have my own insurance, I occasionally find myself on the hunt for a pair that better fits my personality and face. 2 years ago I went to Lenscrafters and had a horrible experience. I literally waited an hour before someone helped me, and when they finally did, they try to sell me on expensive options. When I asked for cheaper alternatives, they seemed annoyed. I ultimately paid $300+ for a pair of glasses that I didn't really love, lenses that were super thick and have scratched easily.

So, I was excited when I found WarbyParker.com.

I hate to admit this, but I’m a stickler for brand design. I know, I know! People always say, don’t judge a book by its cover, but in my experience (for brands at least), if the cover is nice, the material is nice too. I love anything that looks simple & classic. And the minute the page loaded, it was love at first sight.

The site itself is extraordinarily designed, and extremely easy to navigate. They had a lot frame styles that I was digging, and the best part? FREE at home try on. And when I say free, I mean FREE. So what better way to give it whirl than to add 5 frames & color combinations! AWESOME! *You do have to put in your credit card information and they will charge you $1 to authorize the transaction, however it will be given back to you in a few days.

I got an email confirmation in a matter of seconds and the order shipped the next morning!

And in 2 business days, UPS delivered the goods!

Then, obviously, I got to modeling them and I decided to go with the Sinclair in Greystone.

I packed all 5 back into the box, and stuck on the pre-printed FREE return shipping label. (Did I mention how awesome this is yet?) And sent them on their way! You get 5 days with them, but I sent it back in 2.

That night, I went online and ordered the Sinclair. It cost me $95 + $30 for ultra thin lenses since I have really bad eyes. For everything. Frames, lenses, and free shipping. The best part is, when you buy one, they give a pair to someone who needs it. AWESOME!

I ordered the glasses on Tuesday and got my glasses on Friday the same week. Unbelievable! Lenscrafters took almost 4 weeks to get my frames to me!

Even the case was classy, and everything was high quality. Although these glasses will probably last me a good couple of years, I think, I will be purchasing another pair sooner than later.

The glasses fit really well on my face, but unfortunately since I didn't give them my OC, the lenses were a little blurry. I called Warby Parker and they were super nice. They told me to get my OC measured and to email them, and they would fix it for free and send me a prepaid shipping label. They've been super helpful and quick! I love you WP!!!

To sum up, affordable, high quality, trendy glasses that's also for a good cause. It really doesn't get better than that. Even if you don't need glasses, you'll want a Warby Parker (they make non-prescription lenses too!). Be sure to check them out!

And as always, thanks for reading!
