Warby Parker Home Try-On

Warby Parker Home Try-On
My love for Warby Parker goes waaay back to even before I began this little beauty blog, I began following them around 2011 when I was just 21. Once I started my blog they became the very first brand to reach out to me to see if I wanted work with them (you can read that post here). From the moment I tried out their home try-on program in 2013 and learned more about their ethos, I knew this brand was truly special. It's no secret that Warby Parker revolutionized the way we shop for glasses, but for me they were the brand that opened my mind and allowed me to see glasses as more than just a boring and expensive life necessity. I currently own two pairs of Warby Parker frames (a pair of eyeglasses and a pair of prescription sunglasses) and I'm looking to expand my Warby Parker collection so I decided to try out some new frames. This time around I paid close attention to the measurements of each frame to make sure that each frame was going to suit my face.

Warby Parker Ames
Frame: Ames
Color: Graphite Fog
Price: $145 with prescription
Measurements: 54-18-145
Fit Description: Wide rectangular frames
Comments: The Ames has a classic rectangular shape which will flatter a variety of face shapes. What I loved the most about these frames was the combination of the gray cellulose acetate with the thin wire. Although the frames looked nice on me, I did find the nosepad quite uncomfortable for my wider nose. Overall I felt like these frames lacked the "wow" factor that I was looking for in another pair of Warby Parker frames.

Warby Parker Chamberlain
Frame: Chamberlain
Color: Crystal
Price: $95 with prescription
Measurements: 50-18-140
Fit Description: Medium square shaped frames
Comments: The Chamberlain frames also have a very classic look to them, but the square shape make the frames more unique than your standard bold frames. These are the frames to get if you want something that will match your entire wardrobe but also want something a bit more exciting than your standard black. Despite their simplicity, the Chamberlain frames will stand out among the sea of people wearing black or tortoise glasses.
Warby Parker Haskell
Frame: Haskell
Color: Crystal and Blue Jay
Price: $145 with prescription
Measurements: 49-22-145
Fit Description: Medium round frames
Comments: According to Warby Parker these frames are best suited for narrow faces, but me and my big face have to disagree. I honestly think that these frames will suit pretty much any face shape because they're a bit bigger than a lot of round frames. For some reason I'm very attracted to the round shaped frames from Warby Parker, in fact both of the glasses I own have a very similar design. Just like the Chamberlain, the Haskell features that crystal clear cellulose acetate but the blue rim makes these glasses truly stand out.
Warby Parker Laurel
Frame: Laurel
Color: Tea Rose Fade
Price: $95 with prescription
Measurements: 52-17-140
Fit Description: Medium square shaped frames
Comments: I own round, cat eye, and even rectangular shaped frames but this is a shape that I've never played around with. I really found this shape to be flattering on my face and the color combination was equally as nice. The top half of the glasses is a very classic brown but things get interesting with the blush tone that sits closer to your cheeks. The Laurel were by far the most popular frames among my social media followers and I don't blame them at all. These frames are fun, yet professional looking.
Warby Parker Nesbit
Frame: Nesbit
Color: Jet Silver
Price: $145 with prescription
Measurements: 51-18-140
Fit Description: Medium square shaped frames
Comments: The Nesbit frames are simple wire frames with a square shape. I have to be completely honest and say that these were my least favorite frames from the ones I tried out. There's nothing wrong with the shape or the fact that they're silver, my problem was that these felt very flimsy when compared to the frames made with cellulose acetate. Maybe it was because these were sample frames... I honestly don't know. What I do know is that I'm way too clumsy for delicate wire frames such as these ones.

The Winners: Laurel (although I still have a very soft spot for the Chamberlain)
