Some Kind of Genius

Holy beans, you guys, this is seriously, seriously awesome.

I wanted to dedicate this post to a brand that I am for reals in love with, and that brand is Warby Parker.

A few years back, some dudes met and agreed that eyewear is seriously overpriced, and, on the whole, seriously boring to shop for. These dudes went on to establish Warby Parker- an eyewear company that sort of rebells against the industry by making prescription glasses for UNDER $100 at the same exact quality and even COOLER styles as "boutique" quality eyewear.

In my opinion, this is like, the best idea, ever. I have been wearing glasses since the 3rd grade, and nothing is more of a strain than trying to find awesome glasses that fit your face perfectly. WP's designs are based off of vintage styles, which is beyond awesome. I was thoroughly pleased with the pair I got, they're the exact same quality (if not better) than my Dolce & Gabbana frames.

So here's how it works:

1.You pick your favorite glasses from their site (you can use their virtual try-on application to try them on, virtually) and all of them come with prescription lenses for a grand totale of $95


here are s'more of my faves from the collection:

2. Ya choose your prescription and you get them shipped to you for FREE

3.If you like them, you keep them, if not, you get to send them back for free and exchange them to the ones you prefer.



BUT OH, WAIT THERE'S MORE

For every pair you purchase, they will give an additional pair to charity.

HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY BEAT THAT?!

OH WAIT, YOU CAN'T





So, yeah and with more exciting news to come, like a line of sunglasses coming out soon and a whole new collection coming even sooner (January 19th!) there's a lot to be jumping for joy for, like this super chic collection for Steven Allen that will be produced through the end of February:
