i can see for miles and miles

















a while back i read about warby parker on some fellow bloggers' sites and was very intrigued. originally i was interested because they offer great styles of eyeglasses for $95 flat, but then i learned that they're a bit of a TOMS for the glasses world:
Warby Parker partners with renowned non-profits, such as RestoringVision.org, to deliver one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that we sell. In doing so, we enable you to share the gift of vision with someone who can’t see today and give them the opportunity to read, to work and to live a fuller life. 
so i decided to take the plunge and purchase a pair online. i went with the "miles" in sandalwood matte. love them. they're such a great style and fit perfectly when i got them. my friend ginger got the "webb" and they are incredibly cute on her.  plus, who can resist their awesome packaging?? so if you're in the market for some new glasses, check out warby parker.  i mean, $95? that's less than what i paid for my last pair with insurance!

Does that include the lenses too? I just bought a pair last week (am still anxiously waiting on their arrival) and I have a VSP so my frames were free. I paid $111 total because I have BAD eyesight! They look like yours though - totally cute! My eyedoctor recently went to Haiti and gave exams to some kids and fixed them up with glasses, but unfortunately, I don't think my buying glasses at his boutique did any good like these. I love this concept - thank you for sharing!

hey mo, yes that includes the lenses - ginger (mentioned above) has to buy the special lenses because her eyesight is also very bad, but i think she only paid $20 more or so. plus, this includes shipping and everything! that is so great that your doc did that, good to know about all the great things people are doing!!
