I got new glasses last fall, but one of my pairs just has never felt right. The test pair in the store were okay, but I feel like my pair are just too narrow, so I don’t wear them often. I’d like to have another pair to swap in and out. A lot of my co-workers swear by Warby Parker, which is cheap ($95 for frames and lenses) and will mail you five pairs of your choice for free to try out for five days.
I think the pair I ultimately selected will be quite evident, but who knows, maybe you guys have different opinions!
Finn: I actually love these. The shape, the size all work well. But the black is just too stark with my paleness, and I don’t like the other available colors.
Begley: Oh, my God, I tried on Harry Potter’s glasses. I didn’t mean to! I’m sorry! I’ve never had round frames before, and, well, I should continue that trend.
Tenley: This is the only even vaguely cat-eye frame they offer at the moment, which is really sad because where if not at hipster central will you find cat-eyes?? Sadness. Again, too big for my face. Flashbacks to the 1980s, when all glasses were adult sized and my kelly green frames took up 3/4 my face. But I do like the midnight blue – I wish the Finns were available in it.
Nedwin: I’d actually tried these on when my friend got her free try-ons, and I love them more even now. Great pop of color, great shape, nice size. As soon as I find my prescription, I’m ordering these. I usually get transition lenses for my glasses, but I will save the money because my super adorable pink Wayfarers and new red cat-eye sunglasses fit perfectly over these.
I do wish they were a little more unique, as that’s half the fun of a place like WP, but whatever. They’re adorable and suit me well.
