Roarin' Spectacles

I have been rockin' glasses ever since the 2nd grade. They have become quite the staple in my every day fashion wardrobe. Over the past few years I have racked up a few pairs from See Eyewear, Oliver Peoples, Madewell, and Tortoise and Blonde.

One company that I have always been a fan of is Warby Parker. Their company aesthetic prides itself on "vintage-inspired with a contemporary twist" that doesn't break the bank. Their opening price point for their glasses start at $95 - who can beat that? When they asked me to review their new 1922 Collection, I jumped at the chance. Based on Monday's post I can't get enough of the roarin' 20s, can you? They even have a quirky marketing campaign to boot.

According to their website, their new collection...

Translates interwar glamour into a wearable future. Each of the three new frames comes with a sunglasses version, and all feature dramatic details in custom acetate and lightweight stainless steel. The 1922 Collection frames go as well with pearls as they do with your best Tin Pan Alley moves. As they say: living well is the best revenge

Take a look at the below collection. I've got my eye set on the Porter style in gimlet tortoise. Which frame is your favorite?

  1. I’ve been wearing my glasses since high school, so that’s about 11 years ago. Back then, eyeglasses are so dull looking and boring that wearing one makes me look like a geek. Later, I came across and it offers different variety of shapes, colors and styles for different individuals with different styles. Now glasses become an accessory and a fashion must-have for me. I love this website and highly recommend it.
