Ever Shop for Stylish Eye Glasses from Home? {Warby Parker}

Best eye glasses for oval shaped face l Warby Parker on Hello Lovely Studio

There are plenty of essentials which still require shopping at a physical store, but shopping for the best eye glasses can now be done in the comfort of your home. I recently lost a new pair of glasses within the first week of owning them so it’s already time for me to buy a new pair. And thank goodness for modern miracles like Warby Parker where you can shop for frames at home because I am not in the mood to head out into the slushy Chica-goo and cold for a repeat of the last shopping trip to choose cute eyeglasses frames (“Your face is very square, m’am…you should only consider the options over here…”). I know she meant well, but she was pushing certain styles I would never even consider and could not seem to give me any space to think or actually admire the selection. I realized that those two things matter to me when I’m shopping for eyeglasses frames, and Warby Parker addresses both of them and more. Yep. Frame shopping at home with Warby Parker means:

1. Space to think with no one breathing down your neck.

2. Time to admire the selection.

And then the the pièce de résistance…

3. Ability to shop at home in your  jammies!!!

Ever tried a service like WARBY PARKER’S where they send frames to try at home for free?

It’s kinda lovely. Trying frames on at home means it is always tres bien convenient, and you won’t have to drag your partner or daughter or bestie with you on an eye appointment for help choosing a flattering pair. Since the frames come straight to you, you’ll easily be able to score a spouse/friend/coworker’s opinion and help. (I didn’t drag anyone with me on my last visit and unfortunately left with unflattering frames for my face shape…lesson learned.)

Also on zee delicate topic of glasses…

Ever see messages floating around “comforting” girls about wearing glasses? Messages like, ‘we’re not nerdy, we’re intellectual bada$$es?’ Do we really need to comfort each other about glasses-wearing or strive to be bada$$ about everything? Because striving is exhausting, and I have (once again) declared 2018 to be THE YEAR OF SLEEP. No one can stop me. …or you. You can call it the year of sleep too and shop for your new vintage-inspired Warby Parker frames with bedhead in flannel PJs.

Don’t you feel it’s about time glasses had their day so we can perhaps get past the cultural history of ridiculous stereotypes (i.e. glasses-wearing equated with desirability or shyness). So many crazy film characters and ugly duckling transformation stories down through the ages feature a shy girl in glasses who morphs into a goddess without spectacles. From Catwoman to the bookworm Marcia made over a la The Brady Bunch to Princess Diaries. Wait. Why do we want to discourage girls from wearing lenses to help them see the world? Could we maybe grow up? Or create a superhero who *sweet cozy Moses!* requires lenses?

Have you ever:

1. Had the fortuitous experience of spying a bespectacled toddler with a Big Gulp? (Me either. But thanks to the craptasticness of internetland..lookie lookie…that’s GOT to be a wig, oui?).

2. Tried on glasses at home?

I’ll stop posting hipster memes when hipster memes stop tingling my jingles.

It’s safe to say my next pair of eyeglasses are likely to be blush pink since I keep returning to that gorgeous hue! How about you? How do you typically choose your frames, and do you stick with a particular color or style?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I know the pushy sales ladies tactic. The last time I was out looking at eye glasses, the lady helping me suggested that because I have such a small face, I should try on children’s . Then… she’s bringing me all these very bright lenses that would be ever so cute on a six year old but me? I just wanted to be left alone. So,
    I left and tried another place. Upon entering, I told the First Lady who approached me that I was just enjoying the look. I left after ordering a beautiful pair of rose tortoise glasses. I love them! Now, that I have to wear glasses, I think I need a couple of pairs to suit my mood of the day. Off to check out this website.

      The rose tortoise sound lovely! Thanks for playing along, Joanna. 🙂
