Well, Happy New Year Everybody!
Normally, for every new year celebration, I do a post called "Raise Your Glasses" but this is taking it to a new level for 2014... which by the way is going to be the #BestYearEVER!
I am SO super excited to tell you that for THIS new year's celebration, I get to partner with Warby Parker in introducing their new, limited edition Palm Canyon Collection that releases today! ***Like RIGHT NOW y'all.
With the Palm Canyon Collection, we’ve refreshed some of our best-loved frames—Winston, Duckworth, Preston, and Wheeler—in a Palm Springs palette of mesquite, acacia, ironwood, and sand. Each frame features a hand-mixed acetate inset at the end piece, with patterns inspired by Color Field painters and midcentury minimalists. -WP
Everything about the Palm Canyon line makes me want to go on vacation!
Please note: I don't wear optical glasses at all. I own a few falsies but that's it. BUT... if you know me well, then you know that I own WAY TOO MANY sunnies (that's hip/UK for sun glasses *winks*) so, can you imagine the "can I has?!" moment's I was having while getting to peak at all these new looks!!?
***Please see the NEW Winstons (above) #dyingforthem
Also... on top of being super cute with the way they show off their eyeglasses AND sunglasses (you know I LOVE all these vintage inspired,) Warby Parker brings to you Eyewear with a Purpose.
Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses. This means that 15% of the global population cannot effectively learn or work - a problem that Warby Parker is determined to address. We've partnered with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
We believe that everyone has the right to see. -WP
Some of my faves include...
The Preston's in Blue Marblewood (shown above.)
...and i LOVE what they did partnering with Leith Clark for their *Leith* line.
she's SO cute, right?!
Oh, yeah... and can we talk about how they actually sell a Monocle!!?? #BEST!
So, Warby Parker will actually let you pick out five frames and ship them to you to try on and test for five days... FOR FREE. Through their HOME TRY-ON, you pick out your faves and send the five back and wait for your cute new frames to arrive.
You can also do a VIRTUAL TRY-ON...
For the LOVE of laughs!!!... Okay, don't tell him but I tried on the Watts in Sugar Maple on David Bowie and I think they look great.
***Special thanks to David Sperring (who actually wears this look on the daily) for suggesting to try this!!
Palm Canyon Collection frames are available for $145 online at warbyparker.com and at Warby Parker stores and showrooms.
