Unfamiliar with Warby Parker? You can read Sally’s past post about the company here… But all you really need to know is that they make prescription eye ware for men and women starting at $95 and for every pair sold, they donate a pair of glasses to a person in need. For any of you that wear glasses you know that frames – especially the good-looking and high quality ones – don’t necessarily come cheap. Warby Parker’s passion for producing non-bland, well made, and affordable frames for eyeglasses and sunglasses has made them a stand out to the weary-eyed and fashion-forward crowds alike.
Because the glasses are only sold in a select number of showrooms (list here), you can do their “Home Try-On” program and choose five styles that you can test out for five days. For free. What more could we ask for? Apparently the geniuses at Warby Parker thought that more was needed, and they designed the Warby Parker Class Trip – a cross-country road trip that takes one re-imagined yellow school bus through nine cities over six months. Stop number seven on the route? Dallas!
Shopping the bus was such an experience – and my photos hardly do it justice – so if you live near, head over to the bus before it leaves Dallas this Sunday… Try on all the styles and colors of specs and sunnies WP has to offer, choose your favorite and order them right from the bus. It’s way easier than any tests you took (or are still taking) in school, and I know you’ll leave with a whole new appreciation for the brand. Not everyone can make school bus shopping look this good… Wondering what pairs we ended up with: I chose the Percy in grey and Everett in gimlet tortoise - Sally got the Sinclair in midnight blue and Tenley in violet magnolia. Thank you to the WP experts that helped us pick them out!!
