Warby Parker & Why Nerd Glasses Aren't For Me

{hi hat hair!}

Ya'll are as obsessed with Warby Parker's advertising as I am, right? So great. I want to LIVE the Warby lifestyle. Unfortunately, I think I've come to the conclusion through their Warby Parker Home Try-On Program that so-called "Nerd Glasses" are not for me. 

Their Home Try-On program is sheer genius, though, and really takes the guess-work out of choosing glasses online. It's simple: you choose 5 pair you want to try on, and they send you the frames in the mail. You have 5 days to try them out, then you use the pre-paid return label to pop them back in the mail at the UPS station. Easy and did  I mention free? So much fun. So of course I simply HAD to take them up on this offer and try them out (yes, even though I just bought new glasses!). I mean, it's Warby Parker, you guys! PS> I was compensated by Warby Parker for this post, though the opinion and words are entirely my own. These are affiliate links. 


Here is the selection I tried! Top to bottom: 







The Webb and Nedwin were atrocious on me, so I'm not even going to show you those. The Holcomb is cute for a fun pair, but not something I would be likely to wear everyday. I loved the classic tortoise half-rims with a bit of a cat-eye though. Such a cute shape.

















Now, on to some fun big sunglasses. We all know how much I love me some big sunglasses.The Reilly in Marzipan Tortoise was a simply gorgeous pair of sunglasses, but not my favorite for my face shape. 
















Now, though, the Mable did not disappoint. I adore the traditional tortoise and the octagonal shape. Classy, fun, bit of a vintage vibe. Sunglasses perfection!
Overall, the Warby Parker big sunglasses definitely won out in my book over any of the "nerd glasses." I think very heavy glasses overwhelm my features and are a bit heavy for me. This Home Try-On program was well worth it though, and while it does require a credit card "just in case," they don't charge anything up front and the entire process is free. 

Head on over to WarbyParker.com and get a box of beautiful glasses sent to your house. I'm pretty sure you'll find at least one you love!

It's so hard. Do they have a tool to help you find frames that will best compliment your face? I find that really helpful with Rivet and Sway. Thought I still haven't come up with the money to buy the glasses... now that I know which pairs I like. I think the green ones are really cute. Though I don't see a pic of them on. ;) -Alexandra
