help me choose!

Time for some new specs!

I’ve been wearing glasses since I was a young pup, and every year my vision continues to get a little bit worse.  (Bummer.)  But every year or two, that also gives a good excuse for some new glasses.  (Yay!)

So this round, I’m finally trying the fun Warby Parker “home try-on” option!  So many of my friends look awesome in their WP glasses, so I couldn’t wait to give it a go.  You simply visit their great site, pick out 5 glasses you might like, and they mail them to you at no cost to try on (prescription-free) and see what you think.  Pretty  brilliant, WP.

The only bummer was that half of the actual colors that I wanted to try were not available this week for home trying on (too many other people had requested them), so you might notice that all of these look a LOT alike.  And that I start to look a little dazed and confused after awkwardly staring into my camera for Take 5 after a long day at work.  :)

But I’m excited to hear which ones you like best!  So check out my 5 options below, and lemme know!

(*Imagine #1 in “violet magnolia” (tortoise with a little purple)

(*Imagine #2 in “hazelwood” – a lighter tortoise)

(Imagine #4 in “cobalt blue“.)

    1, and then 4.

  3. McKenzie — November 15, 2012 @ 8:42 am (#)

    I have to say I like #1 the best! #4 would be my 2nd choice!

    I like #4 in cobalt blue best on you! #1 is a close runner up too!

    I like 1 and 2. I think 2 would be great in hazelwood.

    I’m with Brandi… 1 & 4 (I think #1 is my favorite though…) – I totally JUST ordered my 5 frames!!! :)

      Eeeee! Please, please post pics, Tina! :-)

    1 and 4 as well, but really 4 the most.

    4 and 2. so excited for you. i’ve had mine for over a year now, (maybe almost two!) and i still love them.

  9. Kathryn — November 15, 2012 @ 10:18 am (#)

    I like 1 & 4 too but I think 1 is my absolute fave.

  10. Melissa — November 15, 2012 @ 10:24 am (#)

    Definitely #1- color and all:)

  11. Stephanie H — November 15, 2012 @ 10:26 am (#)

    I like 4 and 1.

  12. natalie@thesweetslife — November 15, 2012 @ 10:56 am (#)

    number 1 is my fave ! :)

  13. Andrea — November 15, 2012 @ 11:14 am (#)

    I like #1 the best. That shape seems to suit your face the best of all of these options.

  14. Heather — November 15, 2012 @ 11:46 am (#)

    #1! That particular color looks really good with your skintone.

  15. Beverly — November 15, 2012 @ 12:28 pm (#)

    You’re beautiful in anything, Ali, but I vote #1 for shape, and #4 for color! Be sure to post a pic of you in your new glasses!

  16. Maria — November 15, 2012 @ 1:24 pm (#)

    #1 is super cute!

  17. Darrell H — November 15, 2012 @ 1:58 pm (#)

    #4–sets off your eyes the best. (Of course, take that with a grain of salt, because I’m mildly colorblind!)

  18. LIz Stevens — November 15, 2012 @ 3:22 pm (#)

    The problem is you pull every one of those off really well! You would look great in whatever you choose… My first thought was #1 but I am even kind of leaning towards #5!

  19. Mr. Brock — November 15, 2012 @ 3:47 pm (#)

    Number 4. I repeat, Number 4…

  20. Julie — November 15, 2012 @ 4:17 pm (#)

    I like the tortoise shell color. The fatter, blacker ones are a little overwhelming. I’d vote #1 first, then #4, then #5. That’s my two cents.

  21. Laura F — November 15, 2012 @ 6:14 pm (#)

    Pick #1 is my favorite. I like the shape the best. But you do tend to change your hair color which may change my opinion too!

  22. Eric Wimmer — November 15, 2012 @ 6:25 pm (#)

    1.

  23. E — November 16, 2012 @ 7:32 pm (#)

    I dig #1 as well – looks like you have two clear faves to pick from! ;)

  24. Karen G — November 17, 2012 @ 5:21 pm (#)

    Shape-wise, I’d go with #1 or #4.

  25. Laura (Tutti Dolci) — November 17, 2012 @ 11:05 pm (#)

    Love #4!

  26. Kristen — November 19, 2012 @ 2:00 pm (#)

    #4 gets my vote. And oh my gosh, I’ve never heard of this site but I’m totally going to check it out. How fun!

  27. Dawn — November 19, 2012 @ 8:11 pm (#)

    I like #s 1 and 4 too. This is a great idea – I always struggle to choose new glasses!

  28. Sara — November 22, 2012 @ 9:52 am (#)

    In order of favorite-ness…4, 1, 2. But you look super cute in all of them, really! :)

  29. acuna — November 26, 2012 @ 11:34 am (#)

    less frame ~ these are all overpowering your features. or try a different colour.

    I’m an eye doctor in a private practice in Kansas City, and it’s disappointing to see people shopping online for glasses (and contacts for that matter). Studies show that nearly 50% of glasses bought online are delivered to the patient with errors. That being said I really like your website, especially the recipes.
