I just don't like the whole process. Getting a new prescription, picking out frames, feeling like the frames are all ugly and cost too much. I REALLY don't enjoy it. But for the first time in ages (well, ever really) I am super duper excited about it! And the reason why? Warby Parker.
Basically, they are an internet company that sell awesome fashionable well made plastic frames and include your prescription for $95. 95 bucks!!! AND they give a pair to someone in need for every pair you buy. Genius. AND they will send you up to five frames to try on at home before you make a final purchase. I mean c'mon! But none of this would mean anything if they were hideous. They are not. Check out my fav, the Webb Crystal Matte:
When I was younger I always thought that if something had my name in it, I should get it for free. Come to think of it, I still do! Here are some more awesome frames:
