For months (maybe longer), Mark has been telling me that he wants to buy me new eyeglasses from this site called Warby Parker. He's clearly not happy with my current frames, and I really can't blame him. Then yesterday, one of the founder's and CEO of Warby Parker was in D.C. and after Mark heard him speak at Georgetown, I think he developed a tiny man crush. Once again, can't blame him.
So last night we headed out to their Class Trip event, loaded a custom-designed bright yellow school bus and I got to finally try on these infamous frames. Happy to report that I drank the kool-aid. The price is right - just $95 including lenses, and for every pair sold, they donate a pair to someone in need. (Think Tom's but for eyeglasses.) And if you're one of those people (me) who can't shop online because you're nervous about the fit, they offer a program where they ship you (for free) five pairs of glasses to try on so you can be sure about your selection. Now I feel like Mark...totally going googly eyed over this company.
