Who and what is Warby Parker?
Over the weekend, my dear and gorgeous friend Wendy Brooks and I visited a store called Warby Parker for the first time. The store is located in the Meatpacking District of New York City.
Warby Parker sells prescription eyewear and prescription sunglasses and it offers appointments with a board qualified optometrist on site, all at unbelievable prices and with a lot of style.
The vintage-inspired prescription eyewear starts at $95 for most of the frames catering to both men and women.
An eye test costs $50 and the wait time for an appointment is about 4 – 7 days to see the eye doc.
The glasses take approximately 10 business days to be sent anywhere in the USA. They don’t unfortunately ship outside of the States at the moment.
Wendy and I had so much fun trying on all the different frames. We both ended up in the style called ‘Crosby’ — me in the black pair and Wendy in the burgundy/dark red pair. It was a hoot trying on all the styles and the colours the frames came in.
Have you ever been to Warby Parker? If so, what was your experience like?
What frame style did you like most?
If you wear prescription eyewear, what do you pay for a new pair on average?
