y'all know my love for warby parker knows no bounds. It was love at first sight for me--no pun intended--and I haven't looked back (gah... again. wow.) since signing up for their home try-on last fall. hook, line and sinker, I'm not only a fan--it's safe to say I'm obsessed. (ahem... just jump on over to my instagram feed.)
best of all? their customer service is completely unparalleled. while they don't accept insurance, they do accept flexible spending accounts and will send you an itemized receipt to submit to your insurance carrier. from order confirmation to arrival at my doorstep? less than a week. anytime I've emailed, I've received a reply the same day (trivia: tucked in their reps email signatures? the style of sunglasses they're wearing. this little addition inevitably led to my selection of the reilly.) fabulous eyeglasses for your day-to-day, fancy sunglasses to boot, amazing customer service.
seriously? what an incredible company.
dressed up or down, they are amazingly versatile--hands down, favorite thing in my wardrobe right now.
it still shocks me a little that there are still people in this world who aren't familiar with WP. while my incessant purchasing of them (this pair and this pair, and the most gorgeous sunglasses known to man) speaks for itself, I still take the time to verbally tell anyone and everyone about them. just last week, I was excited to walk my adorable boss through her home try-on experience with a handful of some of their sleek, beautiful sunglasses. (nashville even boasts our very own fancy showroom full of WP!) if you're not near a showroom, but clamoring to find out what the mallory/percey/ames look like on you, go to their site right now, pick your top five favorites, and prep yourself to compulsively track that package, only to spend an hour trying them on with half your closet and eight different hairstyles.
not that I speak from experience or anything.
maiz prefers the chamberlains.
so basically, every time I mosey my way on over to their neck of the woods to just browse a little, wouldn't you know? they've released yet another ridiculously fabulous collection.
the beacon collection is WP's spanking new line of marvelous eyewear. while warby parker's whole focus (again, seriously--this is just a gift. can't quit with the puns.) generally tends to lean toward the young and hip, this new crop of specs and sunglasses defies the odds and continues to amaze.
to quote the pros over at WP: the collection name is a hat-tip to the morning star, which you can catch just after sunset or just before sunrise, depending on the time of year. we designed our beacon collection frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between. there's something just as unexpected about each new frame: they're repeat contenders, no matter the hour.

ingram in eyeglasses and sunglasses, mckee eyeglasses.
mckee eyeglasses, nancy eyeglasses and sunglasses.
I'm completely loving the new collection. my reillys are just a few months old, but I am antsy to get my grubby little mitts on the nancy in lemon. quirky, but so freaking cool.
so, spill it. which pair from the new collection are you itching to buy?
while I was asked to write this post, I assure you that my craziness for warby parker is completely genuine and rivals my love for spicy bloody marys and salacious kennedy biographies.
