It’s funny to think that an object that once only served as a purpose to correct one’s vision, has now become such a fashion craze. Moreover, “back then,” only the uncool (geeks, nerds and dorks) wore glasses. Now the uncool have prevailed, and the saying “Nerd is the new black” has surfaced, leaving everyone (including those with perfect vision) sprinting to the stores to purchase spectacles, so they too, could be part of the awesomely “uncool” and intelligent (at least implied…heh heh) elite. As Kelly Oxford once cleverly tweeted, “I like that glasses suggest intelligence instead of broken eyes.”
With that being said, Warby Parker has a polished and sophisticated, yet stylish line of specs. Running at 95 bucks a pop, NOT ONLY do you get to look good (and…er…see better) but your purchase goes towards proceeds that provide glasses for those in need. So in other words, for every pair sold, a pair is given to those who can’t purchase affordable glasses. And to those of you who have been blessed with 20/20 vision, don’t worry; Warby Parker also has a line of snazzy shades.
So go on…put those specs or shades on, and do some good…while looking good.
