A couple months back, I woke up, got out of bed, and promptly stepped on my glasses and broke them. This is the worst thing that can happen to someone who wears glasses and contacts. So, I began perusing glasses options.
I want glasses that are chic and fashionable but are also classic and timeless and don’t cost me a lot of money. After all, I’m wearing contacts more than I wear glasses, but when I wear glasses I want them to look good!
This is where Warby Parker comes in! For years, Warby Parker has been the fashionable girl’s go-to for glasses. They offer some of the most chic and fashionable styles that would make anyone stop and tell you that they not only love your shoes, handbag, or dress but also your gorgeous glasses!
Warby Parker is launching its Fall Collection today and it seems like the perfect time for me to get a pair of glasses to replace the broken ones.
Warby Parker describes their Fall Collection as inspired by the roaming and roving that is reminiscent of the fall season. The days are getting shorter, the weather is changing and things just seem to be moving away from the lazy pace of summer to the quick and moving pace of fall.
The color scheme is very mellow and focused on a autumnal palette with reds, browns, greys and my favorite, harvest hues. There is also a new two-toned style where there is a contrast layer of acetate laminated over a layer of thicker acetate.
A couple of my favorite styles in the collection are Barnett in Toffee Fade, Clark in Scarlet Tortoise, Keen in Burnt Lemon Tortoise, and Simone in Tea Rose. As you can tell, I have a common theme amongst my favorite frames, more of the rectangle frame with darker hues.
But, this collection really has a frame for any style. There are a total of seven styles with frames ranging from my favorite, rectangle to a more edgy circular frame with angular details.

Looking at these glasses makes me think of cold nights by the fire drinking hot cocoa and curled up with a blanket and a good book, or picking pumpkins in a golden patch in my scarf and my cozy sweater, or walking in the rain under a huge umbrella, in my trench and my boots.
If you can’t tell already, I have a thing for fall and in particular fall fashion. So, this collection is coming into my life at the perfect time! My new glasses will go perfectly with my obsessions with coats, scarves, sweaters, leggings and boots!
