Introducing: Warby Parker's Half Decade Collection!

Today is a special day for all you glasses wearers, like me!

"Why?" you might be asking...  Well, let me tell you!

Warby Parker is celebrating its five year anniversary by introducing its Half Decade Collection!

Warby Parker is a really cool company that offers men's and women's prescription glasses and sunglasses that you can try at home before you buy - all for free.  Yup.  You read that right.  You can pick out five (five!) pairs of frames that you fancy, and test them out at home for five days.  Once you figure out which pair is the winner, you mail back the five testers (again, for FREE!), and head over to to buy the specs you love, with your prescription.

So easy.  So fun.

There are tons of frame designs and colors to choose from, and prices start from only $95.  And as a certified glasses wearer, I can't get over what a great price that is!

But believe it or not, that's not the coolest part about Warby Parker.  When you buy a pair of glasses, Warby Parker contributes to monthly donations that go to a non-profit group that offers basic eye exams and sells glasses at super low prices to those who need them!  Buy a pair, give a pair.  How awesome is that??

If you want to read more about this amazing community involvement, check it out here.

But back to the reason to celebrate!!

Warby Parker has been working, helping others, supplying glasses, and expanding their company since 2010!  Five years and going strong!

They even had a little parade in Manhattan, with Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie (I'm a little jealous I couldn't be there...).

Check out more from the parade here!

The Half Decade Collection is an awesome set of frames re-released from their first ever collection. These frames come in a limited-edition spectrum of Warby Parker's signature blue (my favorite color!) and are engraved with a 5 on the temple tip.
Here are a few of the frames from the collection. How cute!!!???!

Each pair comes in a super neat box, inscribed with the names of every frame offered to date.

The entire Half Decade Collection is adorbs, but I have to admit, I'm quite smitten over the "Wiloughby" and "Roosevelt" frames - they're so unique (I love that blue!), but I can still picture them with any outfit.

I also can't get over the monacle!!!  Too cool!!  I mean, seriously...  I kind of want one...  And why don't people wear monacles anymore...  Can we bring that back?  I'd totally rock one...

Since these are just a few frame designs from the Half Decade Collection, you MUST check out the rest at Warby Parker online, or in stores!

I'm so happy for Warby Parker and the awesome things they're doing and can't wait for their 10 year anniversary and Decade Collection!!!!  ; )

Don't forget to check out and let me know what your favorite style from the Half Decade Collection is!
See you (with awesome glasses) soon!
