Warby Parker Fall Collection

Warby Parker released their Fall Collection this week, and it's gorgeous! If you don't know, Warby Parker is an Eyewear company that has 4 locations in the U.S., but they're famous for their at home try-on service.  You choose 5 pairs, Warby Parker sends them to you for free and you keep them for 5 days to try them out. Then at the end of 5 days you send them back and if you loved any of the pairs you order it. If not then you can do another trial with 5 different pairs.

But that isn't the best part about Warby Parker. Nope, not at all. The best part is that for ever pair of glasses sold they donate a pair through their non-profit partners. And that's what has me so excited about them. You guys know by now how giddy socially conscience companies make me. I adore their company history. And the fact that they named their company after two literary characters.

From Warby Parker - "Personality is what makes a good pair of glasses great. Our Fall Collection is for those who own their style, exercise their wit, and add life to the party."

They've introduced 9 new shapes, updated 3 acetate frames with titanium temples and created 3 styles in crystal. With a few angular styles and 2 new hues : Striped Pacific and Petal Tortoise, there is something for everyone, and none of them are boring.

In honor of Warby Parker's Home Try-on Service, I thought I'd highlight my 5 favorite pairs.

The Annette in Petal Tortoise:

The Chandler Ti in Striped Pacific:

The Durand in Saddle Russet:

The Crane Ti in Newsprint Grey:

and Greenleaf in Woodgrain Tortoise:

I have actually ordered their 5 day, 5 pairs trial service and when they arrive I'll post pictures for everyone to vote on.

I'm completely in love with this collection and it's definitely not boring. I know most people prefer to wear contacts, but I've always rued the fact that I only need my glasses for reading. I can't wait until my 5 day trial gets here.
