Warby Parker: Try At Home Program

Monday, February 18, 2013

It's that time of year again... my eye doctor appointment. Has it really been a year? Oh wait... I may have skipped my last appointment. Woops! Regardless, it's my chance to correct my poor, oh-so-blind eyes with 20/20 vision via fresh contacts and new lenses. Possibly, new frames too?

I will admit - I'm still in love with my beautiful Kate Spades, which is more rectangular in shape. However, I thought I'd give some oversized frames a try and test out the Warby Parker Try-On Program. Maybe, I'll even fall in love with a new pair! And... actually start wearing my glasses more?

The Warby Parker Try-On Program allows you to try five pairs of their beautiful frames for five days.. and the best part? It's 100% free! They handle all of the shipping and even include a prepaid return label for your convenience. Quick, fast and easy - I loved trying the program out!

Since, I'm obsessed with all of these frames, and can't seem to decide which ones I should get -- I'd love to open the polls to all of you, m'dears!

Below, I've narrowed down my choices to two frames (Ballard v. Chandler), as modeled below and would love to let you decide which pair I should wear.

Feel free to let me know your thoughts in comments or tweet at @amandabguyen.

Thanks for helping a sistah-friend out!


The "Ballard" come in both Gimlet Tortoise and Striped Chestnut colors. I'm wearing the Gimlet Tortoise in the photo below, and I'm in love with the contrast of color between my frames and my hair. It gives the frame a pop on my face. Also, the frames are more rectangular in shape but still have a smooth finish, that seems to complement the roundness of my face shape.

How fitting that Seattle has a hipster neighborhood named, Ballard!


The "Chandler" comes in two colors - Olivewood and Whiskey Tortoise. I chose the darker Whiskey Tortoise for my try-at home pair. What I love about these frames is the true-hipster vibe of its shape. It even has a bookish keyhole bridge. These frames definitely bring out my inner-nerd... or shall I call it geek chic?

There's something about the name "Chandler" that reminds
me of rich mahogany, leather-bound books and English tea.
So tell me friends, which frames do you like best?
