One of my favorite things is meeting function with style, because let’s face it, it can make some of the more boring and mundane requirements of life a lot more fun and exciting! I typically wear contacts most of the time, but there are definitely times when I just want to throw on a pair of glasses. It’s not just when I first wake up in the morning and want to watch some YouTube to warm up to the day or on those lazy Sundays when I want to be in pjs all day, but also when I want to change up my look and stylize my vibe with an accessory other than jewelry.
Warby Parker just recently opened up a store at my local mall just as I had updated my prescription, so it was perfect timing to pick up a few new fun pairs. They specialize in vintage inspired, hipster approved styles. Fun fact – for every pair of glasses they sell, a pair is also distributed to someone in need. Love a good philanthropic brand!
I was immediately drawn to the Nora style in a flashy rose gold finish. These are highly reflective, feminine, and oh so pretty in pink. I love how the frames really pop with my dark hair. The perfect look for a girly-girl looking for a unique and unusual metallic finish.
To contrast with the Nora, I also picked up the Brady which is a much more masculine look. I love the bigger scaled frames with the more squared-off lines, but what truly drew me in was the matte tortoise finish. We’ve all seen plenty of shiny tortoise frames, I’ve owned many a pair of glasses and obviously sunglasses in that flavor, but I’ve just recently started spotting the matte option which I quickly became obsessed with. I think it really puts a modernized spin on the traditional tortoise look and truthfully, I just feel cool in these (wink).
~ Takeaway ~ Wearing glasses can be fun and exciting if you shop for a pair that can express your style and your vibe.
