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. I like 1 and 4 the best! cute :)

  2. 1, and then 4.

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

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

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

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

  7. 1 and 4 as well, but really 4 the most.

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

  10. Definitely #1- color and all:)

  11. I like 4 and 1.

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

  13. #1! That particular color looks really good with your skintone.

  14. 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!

  15. #1 is super cute!

  16. #4–sets off your eyes the best. (Of course, take that with a grain of salt, because I’m mildly colorblind!)

  17. 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!

  18. Number 4. I repeat, Number 4…

  19. 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.

  20. 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!

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

  22. Shape-wise, I’d go with #1 or #4.

  23. #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!

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

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

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

  27. 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.
