I live in a house full of Warby Parker fanatics. And we all look like this in them:
One of those things is true. We keep a beautiful hipster musician in the basement, you know, just because we can (don’t worry, she eats and gets to go outside a few times a day), and she loves the Warby. My engineer husband with the nutrition fetish who insists that bowties are cool (usually in a British accent, naturally)? He loves the Warby. This tired mama, who often forgets to brush her hair but at least has handknit sweaters? I love the Warby. And Fabes? Well, she’s all about trying to grab everyone’s Warby Parkers off of their faces at any given opportunity. We are a house obsessed.
Which is why, when I got an email from the good folks at Warby Parker last week letting me know that they have a new collection debuting today, and asking if I’d like to help them launch it by sharing the fabulousness with you, I said duh yes obviously. Because, guys, I love this company. Their frames are almost embarrassingly affordable, and they are one of the few magical companies operating with the “Buy one, give one” model – for every pair you purchase, they give a pair to someone in need. It’s a beautiful thing.
The pretty things you see here (how much do you love the pictures of these glasses just lounging around together? I don’t know why, but I think they’re hilarious. I’m composing tiny conversations for them in my head.) are from the brand-spanking-new Palm Canyon Collection. The price point, though a bit higher than their standard collection, is still rockstar, and each pair is one of a kind. Special snowflake glasses. For all your special snowflake needs.
Warby, we adore you, and we thank you for doing good things and making frame shopping fun! (Do you guys know about their home try-on thingy? I did it. You should probably do it to, because, um, fun.)
All the disclosures: Images provided by Warby Parker, specifically Brian, who is totes nice. Warby didn’t pay me, poke me, bribe me, or otherwise coerce me into writing this post. They did ask very nicely, and said I could say whatever I wanted, and gave me pretty pictures of lounging glasses. They also flattered me a little, which I didn’t mind at all. I make zero delicious dollars a year writing Girl of Cardigan, which means I only bother to share with you stuff I genuinely like, use, and would probably make my sister buy. I paid for my Warby Parker glasses my very own self. Now go about your day.
