You may or my not know that I am terribly near sided which means that I constantly need a pair of strong prescription glasses affixed to my face. Now if you REALLY know me personally then you might have known that I broke my vintage metal aviator frames (seen here) all the way back in December. At this time a regular person would have either gotten that pair fixed for found a new pair in a short amount of time. I happen to not be a “regular” person.” Let’s just say that it took months and a couple $5 street vendor frames later until I found the perfect pair. Enter Warby Parker.
A fellow editor of mine, Jessica Lapidos, told me of a brand that sold affordable frames , gave to charity, and were super cool. I immediately made an appointment to visit the Warby Parker showroom in Manhattan. I fell in love with the many styles and colors of glasses. The employes were amazing helped my find the perfect pair of glasses. (Which I got in 2 colors)
All glasses start $95 except the monocle (yes, a monocle!) You can either visit a showroom or order your glasses online. You can even enter your eye prescription and they will put them in for you. I think my favorite aspect of these guys is that they have a “Buy A Pair, Give a Pair” program where they try to serve the one billion people on earth who do not have access to glasses whenever a pair is purchased.
I think I’m going to rename this blog dailyWEATHER because it seems like I’m only botching about NY weather and my outfits trying to conquer it. That being said last week was terrible in the city. I’m pretty sure it rained every singe day. There was one bright side to last week and it was that I finally gt to bring out my burnt orange American Eagle rain slicker.
This outfit is the epitome of high-low fashion. I live for mixing things like designers sweaters and shoes with pants that are super basic and have enough style to be able to blend well with the expensive pieces. Don’t know what came over me to wear shoes like this in the rain. (Think the excitement of a new rain jacket flushed my brain)
My favorite piece is of course my rain slicker. The amazing people at American Eagle gifted it to me and I waited patiently for a good day to rock it. Be careful for what you ask for because I got a whole rainpocalypse. It did keep me super dry and has a supers comfy neckline.
PS this will be my last style wearing my terrible broken Canal St glasses.
