Warby Parker Glasses Home Try-On | Review
If you're like me and are a part of the four-eyed club, you'll be absolutely thrilled about this life-changing service I'm about to share with you. I don't know about you, but when I try on glasses, it takes me forever, and I mean, FOREVER to choose out a frame. After all, I'm going to have to wear the suckers, so I best like them, and that means hours upon hours of tirelessly trying out frame after frame. I admit, I'm not one to take purchases lightly. And I'm not just talking about big purchases - from lotion to eggs, I'm horrible at picking things out. I research and dwell on what I'm about to buy for a loooong time. I guess it's the indecisive person in me, which irritates the shiz out of my husband! Oh well, he can live with me.
Getting to the point of this post, and not my indecisiveness, I have known about Warby Parker for quite some time but never got around to actually trying them out - until now! I've gone more than a year without glasses, so this is a big deal for me. I'm not sure if they first thought of the idea of home-try-ons, but I first heard about it from them. How does Warby Parker work? It works like this: On their site, you choose 5 frames that you want to try, add them to your cart, then they send them to you so you can try them on at home. You do have to enter a valid credit card, but that's about it. I received my box in less than a week. Once you're finished, send them back in the same box with the free return shipping label, then order your frame(s).
So what's so revolutionary about this idea, you ask? Well, it allows you to really try on your frames in the comfort of your home without someone pressuring you to hurry-up-and-buy! Take photos, share with your family and friends, and test them out on the town. At the end of it all (and if you're indecisive like myself), you'll come out of it stress-free and with frames that you truly love. Do as many home try-ons as you need before you commit to buying any.
Here are the frames that I decided to try:
I have always wanted to own tortoise frames, so I may have gone a little overboard choosing them, but I am happy with my selections. The quality of these frames is really nice, and for $95 for prescription eyeglasses, it really doesn't get any better in my opinion. Once I really sat down to take a look at how I looked in them in photos, it really made a difference. It's so much better than trying to take a mental note of how each one looked!
I honestly love how each of them look, so this will be tough sticking to one! Mitchell and Seymour are very similar, I almost can't tell the difference, and I'm really loving the color and style of Upton! It looks so nice photographed. Warby Parker has a zillion and one amazing frames to choose from, and they're all so pretty, so you may have a hard time selecting which ones to try at first. My advice is to try something new! It can't hurt. That's what I did, and I'm so glad I did. I discovered new styles that I wouldn't normally try, and they actually look good with my face shape. If you want to know which one I went with, follow along on Instagram!
It's easy to get your 5 pairs to try on at home for free. Simply visit Warby Parker's Free Home Try-On and you'll be on your way! I also like to check for coupon codes whenever I buy stuff online, so you can see if there is any Warby Parker coupon code currently available here. I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! I love when I find a service that makes life easier, especially when it comes to shopping. If you decide to do a home try-on, I'd love to see what you picked. Tag me on Instagram @hellolovelyliving.
A special thank you to my Mom! This was her birthday gift - for me to get me a new pair of glasses!
