Five frames, five spots with Warby Parker.
I gotta be honest. I have put off buying new glasses for far too long. Yeah I've bought a few great pairs of shades from Warby Parker (lost one pair in the ocean in Costa Rica, still mad about it), but I've yet to embrace my inner nerdiness (being a self-proclaimed art and space nerd, I mean that in a good way) and grab a pair of new spectacles. The obvious solution was to do WP's Home-Try-On program and take these babies out for a spin. I think any accessory you add, especially when it's to your face, really creates a unique identity and vibe, so I took each frame to a unique part of New York. From the clean lines of the new Hudson Yards 7 station to the historic beauty of the New York Public Library, a great pair of frames can really set a mood for how you're playing off your surroundings and how people perceive how seriously you take yourself. Or whatever. They're just glasses, let's not get too deep here. I tend to like a round-ish frame, so I kept my picks in that category but also had some fun with it. The biggest surprise was how much I liked the thick, strong hued Fillmore frames, which I thought were my riskiest choice. Peep the links to each frame and do the Home-Try-On yourself with a nifty quiz.
