Confession: When I was younger, I wanted to wear eye glasses. I always thought wearing them would make me look smarter. So back in school, whenever we had those annual physical exams at the clinic and it was my turn to take the eye test, I would always squint, pretending as if I don’t clearly see the letters on the chart so that the nurse would say I didn’t have a perfect 20/20 vision and would therefore need glasses. 

I never did succeed because my Dad refused to heed the recommendation. Ha! Ha! Though I’ve given up that plan, I still think wearing eye glasses make one look geek chic! Actually over the years, I’ve noticed that wearing eye glasses have become a fashion statement as well. And with these Warby Parker eye glasses from their newly launched 2014 Winter Collection, I’ve no doubt that anyone who buys these designer eye glasses will look absolutely stylish.

And because I do have the impression that glasses actually accentuate one’s look, sometimes when I see a guy wearing glasses, it makes me take a second, third look at him. I find it sexy and cute when I see a man wearing glasses. Like so:

These are some of the eye glass styles that caught my eye:

Keene Beach Glass – for that clean, preppy look
Holcomb Pearled Tortoise – this shouts personality to me 

Verne Revolver Black – this looks classic to me! Kinda looks like the kind of glasses Clark Kent, aka Superman wears! 

But while I can’t wear those pretty eye glasses, I do a different kind of eye wear – the sun glasses. Because wearing them makes me feel like I’m some A-list Hollywood celebrity! Ha! Ha! It’s true, isn’t it? A-list celebs are always rocking the shades when they’re out in public during the day and you have to admit, with sunglasses on, it kinda gives them that classy, mysterious vibe, am I right or am I right? (“,)

Well, part of the 2014 Winter Collection are Warby Parker new sunglass styles too! And they are so gorgeous, I bet I would really look like I’m a celeb when I wear it! These are my faves from the collection:

According to Warby Parker’s website, it was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious business. Warby Parker believes that buying glasses should be easy and fun; it should leave you happy and good-looking, with money in your pocket. They believe that everyone has the right to see and that’s why they have a program called “Buy a pair, Give a Pair”. You can read more about that here.

Anyway, the 2014 Winter collection has six new rich tones and eight new shapes to help anyone put their best face forward even in the event of a polar vortex. Warby Parker mixed stainless steel with acetate, freshened up existing silhouettes with color treatments, and renovated classic shapes for unshakably confident options with a lot of character. These designer eye glasses and sun glasses are now available at Warby Parker’s showrooms and online starting at $95.

Since the website allows customers to do a virtual try on of their products wherein you can either choose to upload a photo of you from the computer, from your Facebook or take a photo of you with the webcam, I just had to go and see for myself just how chic I’d look wearing Warby Parker eye wear!

They also have a Home Try-On program where customers can pick out 5 frames to try on and they’ll ship it to you for free. You’ll be given 5 days to take ’em for a spin – you know just so you can see how you like the glasses on you and get your trusted friends and family’s opinion too. Pick out which ones you wanna buy then ship the rest back also for free! The Warby eyewear starts at $95.
