warby parker


A. Miles



B. Webb


C. Huxley

I just got my Warby Parker home try on glasses yesterday, I am so impressed that you can try them on at home for free - what an awesome idea! And free shipping both ways! I had seen Megan's glasses in person over the summer and I loved them. I'm having trouble deciding which ones, I've always wanted clear glasses but I also really like the Miles ones too. They're only $95 so getting two pairs is almost feasible. I look like a major dork face in all these pictures - almost thought of cropping them so they're just the glasses, haha, but wanted some opinions. Which ones do you like the best? Or do you hate them all and think I really do look like a dork face? I'm told the greenish tint in the fake lenses is normal so just ignore that x-files effect. Though maybe that would attract Mulder? Excuse my slanted shoulder in the last one, that's just a genetic slanted shoulder problem, or maybe it's self inflicted from hours at the machines. Probably both.

I love all three, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them!! Cute!

Mallory said...

I'm not much help in aiding you to make a choice, because I love all three (& would like to buy all three, in a dream world). I've always wanted clear glasses too.... but the Huxley's.... they're so good! I'm on the waiting list for at-home-try-on pairs. I'm hoping that I look miserable in all but one of them, so my decision will be easier, haha. You look delightful in all three though. Hard choices, hard choices.

I really like the second pair but the first and the third are fun too. I love that brand!

Bre said...

love the c. huxley!

sarah said...

oooh. very tough decision. you are such a cutie! i like the clear ones or the half + half's (c. huxley) the best.

Ella said...

They're all freakin awesome, but I do like the Huxleys best. Or maybe the Miles. No, the Huxleys.

Arlie said...

these so cute! I've been due for a new pair or glasses for quite some time... excited about these, thanks for sharing :)
I like the C. Huxley best

Oh, I really like Huxley on you, Julia. I like the squarer shape, and the two tone colour is cute. I have been aching to buy a pair of Huxley's myself but Warby Parker don't send to Australia!

Ruth said...

I love the miles. they are all so cute! Good luck choosing !

Kim said...

Gosh, I was going to say the C. Huxley as well, even before I saw all of the other comments!

i have clear frames, which i bought on ebay for $30. they need to be replaced, unfortunately. i was thinking of trying See.

i vote for the dark frames. and the clear ones, too, if you want two pairs.

Hi. Hello. Have been reading for a short while. I think option B looks the best. I keep meaning to do this, it is a good idea, plus they give a pair away.

Hello Lindello said...

I vote #3. Although they all are pretty cute!

anabela / fieldguided said...

They're all so perfect for you! But I really love the two-toned Huxleys. They're great!

metrode said...

most like the top (first) pair!

no2pesnel said...

I think the Webb's are the most flattering frames on you. The clear is so fun! I actually had wanted those myself but the clear wasn't working for me, so I have them in Tortoise.

Shirley said...

these are definitely cute glasses. and who says dorky is a bad thing?

i have to say though, if given a choice, i think the third frame frames your face better. the clear ones kind of drown on you and the black ones are too stark for your face plus the fact that you have brown-ish hair color. like... too much is going on. i suggest research a little on what colors and what frame styles fit best for your face shape. i've always been miserably bad at choosing the right frames for my face so i'd be a bad advisor. haha.

Hello :)
I love all the glasses!
But I think the Miles look best on you :D

greenlaundry said...

If you should pick two, the last two then!

Anna said...

Huxley!

Huxley Huxley Huxley!

Jennifer said...

I love B, A, C in that order. One of these days I'm going to narrow down my choices for an at home try-on. I love this company!

courtney said...

the miles look adorable on you! i would definitely pick those.

Ains said...

The Webb is probably my favorite?

I just got my Finn's in the mail yesterday!

Shirley said...

on second thought, i think the clear ones are fine. seeing these during the day time versus the night (when i left my comment) makes a big difference. and i think the clear ones are actually quite nice. and the black ones aren't too bad either. i think if i had to choose, i'd pick 2, 1, and then 3. weird how my preferences change depending on time of day of seeing these pictures. lol.

jennifer said...

i have the miles. and i love them. but. the huxley's look so good on you.

Hannah said...

#1 Miles
#2 Webb

Megan said...

ahhh! I'm probably a little late here, but I love/loved the Huxley's on you! they really suit your face...and I also love the Webb's, though I'm a sucker for transparent frames (uh, all three pairs of my glasses in my current rotation are at least 50% transparent)...at any rate, I say get 2 pairs! they're super cheap as you say, and who knows how hard they might be to get in the future, w/their increasing popularity

maybe I should get another pair...

juuuust kidding...

Rūta said...

I love Miles "black" most, but #3 looks very interesting on you too.

Mon Petit Lapin said...

My vote goes for the first ones and then I like the last ones but I think the first ones are the raddest!

Miss Mash said...

Huxley for sure.

randy said...

Hi Julia - I'm curious... which frames did you pick?? I'm considering the same three frames right now, as a guy! I am leaning toward Webb in Whiskey Tortoise Matte as the Webb frame seems to best fit my face. BTW, I found this post while Googling Warby Parker Webb in hopes of seeing pics of others wearing Webb frames.. Thanks!! Oh, super cute too!
