Warby Parker Review

Recently, Warby Parker asked me to review their newest Spring and Palm Canyon collections, so that is what this post shall be about! I had never heard of Warby Parker, but once I checked out their website, the way they conducted business sounded familiar to me. Turns out my boyfriend had actually tried their products before. Warby Parker is basically an online eyeglasses/sunglasses shop – both prescription and non-prescription. What I thought was cool is that they send you samples to try on at home for a few days to mimic the feeling of actually trying on glasses at a store. You’re allowed 5 samples, I believe, because you can’t always trust that things on a model are going to look the same on you. In addition, when you purchase a pair of their glasses, they donate a pair to someone in need through their non-profit partners.

As for their Spring Collection, I am really loving the different color options they provide. In fact, I am in love with the Quimby sunglasses in Absinthe.

I think that these are so stylish and unique for the spring! I love the vintage shape to them, but I am mostly sold on their green color.

Here is another one of my favorites:

And some models styling the Spring Collection, to get an idea of how they look on.

They have quite the hipster, coffee shop, entrepreneur look to them, and are very trendy in my opinion. As for the Palm Canyon Collection, I’m not a particularly huge fan of this style, but I do think they are fairly chic.

This wooden frame trend is still in its early stages, but I think it still has high potential. I saw some vendors selling similar shades on campus, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this look starts hitting stores soon.

In addition to the wooden style frames, they have a a frame called Red Canyon that I think is very business woman chic.

The shape is very professional and sleek, not too distracting, yet appealing to the eye (ah see how punny I am).

So that is my review of Warby Parker! I have never personally tried their products, but from reviewing their website and images, I can say that I really like their style 🙂

Here is today’s outfit of the day. My thrifted orange cardigan is my new favorite piece to wear. The dress is also thrifted: from Goodwill. It’s more retro than anything, but I toned it down by adding a belt from Forever 21.

La Jolla Spree

La Jolla Spree

Recently I was in La Jolla, CA, and if you have ever been there, you would know that there is great shopping downtown. Saving for school being my highest priority right now, I could not go crazy with the shopping. Me being a thrifty shopper, I still found a way to come home with something! The dress is from Ross (not from downtown, but in a different area of La Jolla) and I got it for a whopping $5.99. The necklace and earring set, however, I got from a store called Georgiou in downtown. It was $22, so that was my single splurge.

If you are ever in the area, I would recommend going to Georgiou. It is a little expensive, but they were having a buy one get one half off sale when I was there. They have very classy, yet casual clothing. I spent a lot of time in Francesca’s as well, but the prices could not satisfy my thrifty nature. A close-up of the necklace and earrings will come up soon.

Here is the long-promised for Target haul. I apologize for not uploading pictures sooner, but I have been in beautiful San Diego/La Jolla for the past week spending hours in the ocean and late afternoons lounging on the poolside. Not to mention a bit of shopping (shocker!). A few more pictures of items I got from Target will come up later today or tomorrow. AND, not to mention, a La Jolla shopping haul and/or photo shoot. So stay tuned.

Back to the post. I would just like to say that razor back tank tops are marvelous. They are simple, casual, and easy to wear anywhere. In my opinion, I would recommend buying a looser fitting tank top, that way you could wear it as a comfortable workout top, a beach/pool cover-up, or combine it with a bralette (Yes, I have finally figured out how to wear them)! I wore this while going for a run at Torrey Pines, and I must admit I felt a lot better about myself wearing something other than old cross country t-shirts. So that is where I must conclude, be back soon!
