warby parker... again. again.

I think I have a problem. I love trying on glasses and never buying them. This will be my third round of the Warby Parker at home try-ons and I have so much fun and send them back only to find more styles again and the cycle continues. It's really gotten out of hand. But as a person who solely wears glasses this is the struggle I endure. Hashtag//thestruggleisreal

Alas, I did the same thing again because I can't help myself, but decided I wanted all black frames this time. What usually does me in is I'll get 3 black frames, 1 crazy color, like yellow or red, and one tortoiseshell pair that I absolutely fall in love with. Happens every time. Also I already OWN a tortoiseshell pair so I mean come on!

So I stuck to my guns and ordered all black. My whole life I've been wearing square-ish frames because apparently my face shape is a mystery to me and this is what works. I ordered a little more round frames on the last one and of course that's the one I adore. Naturally.

Take a look for yourself.

I have ordered the Zagg and the Roosevelt before but keep coming back to them as if they'll be different the next go-round*. I don't hate them but I don't love them - though I feel like a very serious designer in the Roosevelt every time. Why do I keep ordering them? Gah! The Catalina is very much like the glasses I own now but the frames are wider and a tad daintier, which I like. But... then there's the Duckworth. I feel like a sexy librarian in the Duckworth, which is my ultimate goal in life - in both profession and attitude. Just sayin.

Maybe eventually I'll order a pair or two and quit bothering everyone. Maybe.

*I realize I just said the phrase "go-round." I've been watching a LOT... a LOT of Sherlock. Not that I'm ashamed I just find myself using certain phrases... and talking in a British accent for approximately 30 minutes after I've finished an episode.


  1. Hi. You don't know me but I'm Libby, Hi.
    Anyway, I'm an optician and I put people in glasses for a living (don't worry, I'm not going to get onto you for ordering glasses online. I'm totally pro-Warby Parker.)
    Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you look at where your pupils fall within the frame, it looks like Beckett fits you the very best.
    Also, I love how you managed to keep the exact-same-face in all but one of those photos. It's awesome.

  2. Oooo this makes me want to get another set of try-ons. It's just so fun! I don't understand my face shape/glasses shape relationship either, but I like all of these. My gut instinct was the Duckworth. DEM GLASSES HOT. They're like a subtle/modern horn-rim. Catalina is a close second favorite... they're like a classier version of the Beckett.
