There’s nothing like starting a Monday morning with pictures of your face plastered across your blog page. (Note to self: put up a new post after this one, asap.)
A few weeks ago, I lost my glasses in the house. I mean, of all the frustrating places to lose your glasses, knowing that they are somewhere in your home is pretty mind-blowingly annoying. I know, as soon as I order new ones, I’ll find them under Birdy’s crib, or in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator, or between the sofa cushions–except I’ve checked all those places.
So for the past few weeks I’ve been wearing my spare pair–a somewhat weaker prescription that also happens to feel like the most narrow, hard-to-see-through glasses ever. And to top it off, they’re crooked. Yes, I’ve been quite the hair-brained-looking mom lately in my squinty, cock-eyed glasses.
So last week, I decided to throw in the towel, admit the loss and start looking for new glasses. I’ve always browsed the frames on Warby Parker and have thought the whole concept to be really interesting. Not only do I love the frames they offer, but their Buy A Pair, Give A Pair philosophy of doing good in the world is pretty awesome. This year, they’ve distributed 500K pairs of glasses to people in need. And every pair purchased from their site, is a pair given.
So last week, I agonized over which five pairs I wanted to try on at home and finally narrowed it down to five (which I’ve since narrowed down to 3)
Then, the box didn’t show up. And I called their customer service (and they answered on the second ring), and they sent another box (and then the original order showed up again….and we all laughed about how the mail lady was probably afraid of my dog and wouldn’t deliver it.)
So the glasses are here. Their customer service and follow-up with my order has been amazing. I’ve gathered my information (they’ll call your doctor’s office for you to get your prescription), and I’m ready to hit purchase. But first you have to help me vote. One of these glasses stands out as a definite no to me. And the other two, I realize, look very similar. But one has a thicker, heavier frame.
So, I’m putting my face out there….which pair jumps out as your fave…1, 2, or 3?
