I’ve been searching all over for the perfect pair of glasses, I’ve been on the hunt for about 6 months or so. When I was younger I always liked to buy the cute pricey glasses, usually Coach, Gucci, Versace, you name it. Maybe it’s my age but I can not find the energy or strength to spend $400-$500 on a pair of frames, it just doesn’t make sense anymore.
Especially once you realize you were most likely doing that to fit in. The funny thing is when I purchased new glasses that was the most money I ever spent on anything, I was so cheap back then. To be honest not much has changed, HA HA. Eventually you get tired of trying to live a Jay Z life on a MC Hammer budget. So not too long ago someone mentioned the store Warby Parker and how cheap their frames are, so I thought I’d give them a shot.
I didn’t want to just buy any ol’ pair of glasses, so I decided to do the “take home, try-on” option they offer. On their website you get to pick 5 frames that you like, Warby sends them to your address, you try the frames on, figure out which one you like the best, and then send all 5 glasses back to the store. Out of the 5 I received, I liked a pair named Collis the best, so I sent them my prescription and got my glasses about 5 business days later. What is the best thing about all of this?? All glasses at WP are only $95 (for single vision), and $295 (for progressive vision). My prescription was a bit high so I opted for the high 1.67 index frames for an extra $25, so my total came up to $125. Not bad right?? Quite a change from what I used to spend in my younger days.
Take a look at my new frames:
What do you guys think??
