Review: Warby Parker.
Although they fog terribly after coming inside, from the cold, and require constant cleaning from annoying, inevitable finger prints, they give me back the time it takes to remove & clean my contacts nightly (then rinsing & putting them back in again in the AM).
I'm realizing more & more that I don't like having to do a lot to get ready in morning.
Ehh...maybe the time saved v.s. time lost is the same?...
But, I'll definitely save some $ from having to buy contact solution & cases.
I want some super sophisticated (quality) frames that will last several years...maybe with some transition lenses.
Can anyone give me the inside scoop on those??? Are transition lenses efficient?
I was impressed with the box. Very clean. Nice packaging. The glasses inside were also clean.
Not sure why (maybe the other reviews I'd seen online), but I was expecting finger prints & just "Ugh" from when other people tried them on their faces, but of course, the glasses & the plastic that they came in...pristine!
Warby Parker charges 95 bucks for a pair, and I think that's fair.
The Huxley's were my favorite, but I didn't fall in love with any of the 5 frames that I selected. None of them hugged the bridge of my nose (always the deal breaker for finding frames, for me), and I think I want a more "serious-looking" frame.
I need frames that snuggle the sides of my face, as well as my nose. I hate having to adjust my glasses every few minutes. The frames that I have now keep sliding down my nose; they didn't use to do this, but they're so old & loose.
As far as aesthetics, I think rectangular frames look best on me.
It's hilarious how I try to go by the "face-shape to frame-shape chart" but my face is like, all shapes:
Square-ish in the forehead area.I definitely recommend giving Warby Parker's Home Try-on Service a go if you're in the market for some reasonably priced, decent quality, stylish frames.
Heart-shaped, cheeks to chin.
Oval, when I'm straight-faced.
Round-like, when I smile/laugh hard (after a season of eating much food of comfort).
My "perfect-frame" search continues.
Have you tried Warby Parker?
