Announcing: Warby Parker Fall Collection

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!

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.
