Marianne: More Warby Parker Reviews

Yes, even though a lot of you found them unflattering and too chunky for me, I am not satisfied in my search for some fun new glasses. And so, Round 2 of my Warby Parker Home Trial. After uploading these pictures I wished I had done something with my hair and noticed the reflections, but you can't win them all.

These were fun, but pretty comical on my small face. I felt like Ira Glass, who I love, but I don't want to be him.

That's more like it. Okay, these aren't quite what I'm looking for, but they are just a bit more delicate and better sized for my bone structure. I like the dark tortoise color as well.

I loved this striped chestnut color. These felt a bit heavy on me, though.

I think these are my favorite. They are just a bit more feminine, and the way they get gradually lighter towards the bottom makes them feel like they aren't as overwhelming on my face. I think we might have a winner!

What's that? You remember that you get 5 pairs in each home trial box? Oh fine, maybe you don't. But there was one more pair that was so hilariously bad on me, the pictures don't do it justice. I look a bit like a young Woody Allen.

I am telling you, they looked so bad on me that my husband snorted. But the good news is, I think I found some glasses! And for under $100. Once again, I am not getting a penny for this review, I just think it's a great company with some really fun options (and great prices!).


  1. You look about 17 years old...in a good way.

  2. I really like your pick! They fit your bitty face. The chestnut stripe ones above them are super cute too!

  3. Sigh... I just love Warby Parker!!
