I literally had like no time on the ground in NYC. But I did find a spare hour to stop by Warby Parker's showroom and home office in Soho. They have a really great loft space that was just delicious on that warm and sunny New York afternoon. It's a cozy and inviting space to try on tons of glasses and get to know more about the WP brand.
This is their "office" portion... those Parson-style desks, plush leather chairs, and life-sized iMacs were calling my name. (Think they are hiring bloggers?) I love what a work environment says about a company. This one says: we love our employees and we are seriously cool.
I've done the home try-on program when purchasing my first pair of WP glasses - and it was pretty darn fun. But having the whole showroom to try on it one sitting?
I had a lot of fun, to say the least.
And I found my next pair - are they cute or what?
(also check out the matte black pair - fourth down - those were amazing too! Really gorgeous in person.)
Then it was almost like wedding dress shopping - you know you've already found 'the one', but you can't tear yourselves away from the others.
I have a very weird look on my face here - but these clear frames were runner up for my next pair.
They are like invisible! But not!
I promise to have event pictures from Friday night up on the blog soon! I am waiting to get some of the "professional" ones from the event! So stay tuned!
