Warby Parker’s New Collection: 1922

A little over two months ago, I wrote how my desire for Warby Parker eyeglasses was pushing me to finally go back to the eye doctor and update my prescription. Boyfriend and I had a nice little shopping-in-SoHo Sunday, so I finally made it into Warby Parker to try on some specs. After trying on everything in the store, I landed on the Zagg in Tennessee Whiskey.

I am so excited about these glasses that I wish I needed them for day-to-day things, and not just going to the movies or driving a car (which I do about once a month).

I don’t necessarily consider myself a glasses kind of girl, but I was in love with almost every single style I tried on at Warby Parker. I am sad that I didn’t get to sample the new  1922 Collection, out today in both optical and sunglasses styles for all frames.

Perhaps I would have landed on the Duke

They certainly have something for everyone, and as the dark-rimmed square frames become more and more mainstream, I can see the interwar glam styles of the 1922 Collection making their way to a hipster near you. I’m definitely considering diversifying my own sunglasses collection with one of these pairs.

What do you think, would you wear the 1922 Collection?

Introducing The Hayworth Collection by Warby Parker

Somewhere around my 21st birthday I lost the ability to read highway signs until I was almost past them, and I realized that I needed glasses. The eye doctor told me that my eyes weren’t likely to change again until old age, and I took that as an invitation to buy what I thought were the most expensive, trendy frames I could find. Silly 21-year-old me. It was particularly ridiculous since I only needed specs for driving.

Now, five years later, I’m finding myself squinting at computer screens and menus more and more. My prescription has definitely changed, and I’ve been way too busy/lazy/whatever to get my booty into a doctor’s office for an eye exam. But I have been lusting Warby Parkers for months, and their latest collection, out today, may just give me the final push I need.

I love and want Warby Parkers for a few reasons:

  1. They mail you five options to test out for five days before you commit.
  2. They’re affordable: glasses start at $95 per pair.
  3. They’re a company with good purpose: for every pair sold, one is donated to a person in need.

So my goal before February ends is this: figure out my prescription, and order some WPs. The Edgeworth in Striped Sassafras is a top contendor. What do you think?
