Don’t you ♥ our beauty nerd glasses in the About Us tab? Jane and I searched tirelessly for those frames, believe it or not. We visited numerous online sites, but were reluctant to make any purchases without knowing how they would look on us. After perusing through various independent stores in New York, we finally found the perfect pair.
Throughout this arduous process, I wondered why there wasn’t an easier way to seek out those perfect set of frames to complement one’s particular face shape. At last, yesterday, I discovered a company written up in the New York Times called Warby Parker. I absolutely love their concept. You can find ’boutique-quality’ glasses with ‘vintage-inspired’ aesthetics, without the hefty price tag! Better yet, you don’t even have to leave your house – gotta love online shopping! By using their virtual try-on application, you simply upload an existing photo or take a new photo from your webcam, and then begin your search for the perfect “beauty nerd” frames! Akin to the Zappos business model, Warby Parker offers free shipping and free returns… how awesome is that? Currently, they only ship to US and Canada though… sorry my international Beauty Nerds!
I know you all have a bit of ‘Beauty Nerd Chic’ in you! Send me your best photo wearing those awesome ‘geek chic’ frames along with a little message (even just to say ‘hi’) and I will dedicate a post to you! Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org . Looking forward to your pics!
