Do you wear glasses? Do you know about Warby Parker? Our friend told us about them tonight. They sell really cute, vintage-inspired styles (with spiffy names) online for $95 (Rx lenses included) with free shipping and returns.
And, they'll send you five pair at a time to try at home to see if you like them before you buy.
And, they have a little Virtual Try-On, too, so you can see online which frames will probably look best on you, before you order five for the Home Try-On.
AND, for every pair they sell, they donate one pair to someone who needs glasses through non-profits such as RestoringVision.org.
So I just sat here for about 45 minutes virtually trying on glasses. One style and a few colors I wanted to try were currently sold out or not available for Home Try-On, so I stuck my name on the email list to be notified when they're in stock, but I still found five pair and ordered them to try.
(I'm hoping they come straight to me here in California, and do not end up in Memphis or similar.)
(I still have to go get an eye exam this coming week some time.)
Thanks, Tash, for telling us about this!
ps They also offer a monocle ... "the perfect accessory for budding robber barons, post-colonial tyrants and super villains." :)
