Warby Parker

I’ve been meaning to order a pair of Warby Parker glasses since they came out. Then since they opened a showroom at Shop Good. Then when they debuted their line of sunglasses. You get the picture. So when my two year eye appointment rolled around this month I knew it was really time. Lucky for me, Oklahoma City is one of four locations in the U.S. that have physical showrooms – it’s located inside Shop Good. I swear I’d been in there trying on frames no fewer than three times over the past year. The owners, Justin and Audrey, are sweethearts who I’ve been lucky enough to know for about a year and a half. After about thirty minutes I settled on the Beckett frames and my order was complete in less than five minutes. Monday I got the email saying my glasses had shipped, and yesterday they were waiting on my doorstep when I got home from work. They showed up in the best box with a case lined in electric blue.  Oh! And a pair of their glasses went to someone in need when I purchased mine, all for a very affordable $95 total.

 

Then I immediately took my contacts out and tried them on. After ten hours at the office. Just for you.

PS: This is not a sponsored post, I’m just a big fan of the company and their products.

    I have the Beckets too! LOVE THEM. Warby Parker is such a great company with a great business model. I loved my first experience so much that I even got a second set of at-home try ons. Still deciding on which ones to get.

    Thanks for posting this. I usually get super cheap frames (zennioptical.com) but this sounds like a really great company and $95 is TOTALLY inexpensive for a nice pair of frames. They look great on you, as well!

    I order some Warby Parker’s last year…and they are still holding up. Cheap doesn’t always equal junk! :) And I too was blown away by the packaging…love the burst of blue. I want another pair!

    So funny, I was JUST on the Warby Parker site! I love my Oleg Cassini glasses (Walmart, what?) but my puppy chewed on the stems and I’m daydreaming of a shiny new pair! I’ve been having so much fun with their try-on feature!

    that along with the free try on samples are the best!

    I ordered a pair of the “huxley” online this summer. And honestly i wasnt expecting that much, I had broken my $300+ pair that i had had for 5 yrs…and had a bunch of long haul flight to take soon. (for the non-contact lens wearers FYI- even a short flight in contact lenses are reaallly not a good idea).

    So i had in mind to order some “proper” glasses when I returned from my trips. But the minute i got them i was hooked. Even my teenage brother who NEVER notices anything went “Duuuude..those are kewl!”
