Warby Parker | Summer 2016

June 14, 2016

My first introduction to Warby Parker was love at first sight. It sounds so cliché, but it's so true. The vintage-inspired eyewear company opened its first store in Atlanta (also the brand's first stand-alone store in the Southeast) in 2014 and I popped into the Buckhead shop for a preview. Where had this store been my entire life of wearing glasses from the age of 10 until I was 32 when I had Lasik surgery? I mean, I literally wanted one of everything. Founded in 2010 by college students who realized glasses were overpriced for many consumers, WP's prescription eyewear and sunglasses begin at $95. Insert exaggerated eye roll ... I don't even want to think about how much money I spent on frames alone. Nevertheless, less than two years later, Atlanta has gotten its second boutique -- Warby Parker Westside ProvisionsWhere the dark millwork and tufted leather of its Buckhead location evoke a classic, well-appointed study, WP's new spot further downtown is bright and big on contrasts. There's nothing like the feeling of loveliness all around to further inspire your mood to shop. From the 2016 summer collection, I chose the Cecily. And my love affair continues.
