I've already done a review on one of these sites, called Firmoo.com, here. However, I kept hearing raves about Warby Parker. What I liked about Warby Parker was that you could pick out five frames to be sent to you to try on at home. This is a brilliant idea as you can really play around with the different frames and get family and friends opinion. Oh, did I also mention a complete pair of prescription glasses is $95??!!!
I was so excited when I got my frames and couldn't wait to photograph them to see how they truly looked.

I was super impressed with the quality of all of these glasses. Even the rimless glasses had some heft to them and were not flimsy by any means. I also love the try on at home option. It was fun to take pictures in them, try them on with different hair and makeup styles and got the input of my family and friends. I also love that Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to someone in need- what an amazing thing!
So, which pair did I pick?
The WILKIE GREYSTONE!
I am absolutely in love with these glasses! They fit perfectly and give me just enough of the nerdy/chic look.
The process of ordering them was quite easy as well. I didn't have an exact copy of my prescription so I provided Warby Parker with my eye doctor's information and they called him to get my information. I would say it took about 11 days from the time I ordered until the time I got my glasses. I think mine took a bit longer than usual due to the fact that they had trouble contacting my eye doctor. They come packaged beautifully with a hard case and soft pouch as well as a cleaning cloth. You also have 30 days to return them in case you aren't in love with them.
I will only be purchasing my glasses from Warby Parker from now on. My one and only complaint? My prescription is SO bad that they can't do it for sunglasses. I don't understand the science behind it, but they are unable to do it with the glass that they use. So I will still have to spend hundreds on my prescription sunnies. :(
Have you ever ordered glasses online? Do you agree with my frames decision?
