I have been making the rounds trying to choose new frames, and last week, my sis and I stopped into Warby Parker. Today’s Shopping for New Glasses: Warby Parker is a little recap and specifics about this source for super cute frames at highly competitive prices.
Shopping for New Glasses: Warby Parker
First things first.
Warby Parker makes it simple to shop at home with their TRY ON PROGRAM HERE.
Here’s How It Works Plus Some Tips
Warby Parker Frames – Lucy
Warby Parker Frames – Lyle
Warby Parker Frames – Welty
Warby Parker Frames – Wilkie
I loved this Chestnut Crystal color – so nice when you’re shooting for low contrast with blonde hair.

Thoughts About Pricing at Warby Parker
As I mentioned, I have made the rounds to several frame shops including Lenscrafters, Vision World, and WalMart, and after reviewing estimates for frames I liked at each of these outlets, Warby Parker’s pricing beat them all.
A single prescription including lenses is $95 (delivery within 7-10 business days), and progressives are $295 (delivery within 10-12 business days).
How about FREE SHIPPING and hassle free returns or exchanges within 30 days of your receipt? Sounds lovely to me.
So Which Frames Did I Choose?
Well, in the store, I liked the look of WELTY and WILKIE the most and had settled on Welty.
However, after posting these pics, I think Welty is too wide for my wee face, and I prefer WILKIE or LYLE. So I’ll go ahead and do their TRY ON PROGRAM HERE to confirm before ordering since I can live with them for 5 days to decide.

More Lovely Finds Shopping That Day
For what ever reason, my complexion is always horrible in September. It’s possible it’s an illusion since I look better in summer with a little color on my cheeks, but it does seem I have to get extra intentional about skincare as summer turns into fall. This September, my skin is especially unfortunate since it reflects my poor gut health (sorry – there’s no other delicate way to state it!). I have had breakouts, skin rashes, and more. To be honest, when I wake up in the morning, I am never quite sure what new blemish or bump will greet me in the mirror.
Thank goodness, the surgery is over, and as my health improves, so too will my skin. I will be visiting the dermatologist just to make sure I’m doing all I can, to get monitored for skin cancer since I’m at a higher risk with the BRCA2 mutation, and to perhaps get a little Botox in my forehead for the elevens (I like expression lines and don’t mind those horizontal forehead ones, but those vertical ones that cause me to look tense or angry are not my favorite) and for migraines.
A Few Favs
I am hooked on Aveda’s Botanical Kinetic line – the fragrance and results work perfectly for my over 50 skin. Just a little of the Radiant Skin Refiner goes a long way, and I keep it in the shower.
Here is the product I use to hydrate my skin day and night, and the natural fragrance is heavenly:
I have darkness under my eyes, and I have tried every concealer under the sun as I try to get full coverage. This is the best concealer I have ever used, and a huge bonus is it is velvety smooth so it is gentle on that delicate skin area.
I can hardly believe a product like this exists. A moisturizer with sunscreen (spf 50!) that delivers full coverage! Best of all? Omg. The fragrance is fresh, slightly citrusy, and beyond pleasing–I can’t imagine the work and research that went into creating a product boasting all those amazing properties.
Have a Favorite Mascara?
For me, mascara is mascara. Except for this one. There’s just no other mascara in my book that comes close.
This is a fabulous eyeliner that glides on and stays on – I have stuck with it for a few years.
Need Inspiration for a Beautiful Fall Makeup Look?
Dominique Sachse knows her way around flattering, neutral fall shades and for me, takes all the mystery and difficulty out of applying makeup properly.
