Hey guys! So I know I just talked about glasses in my most recent post (you never know what I'm gonna blog about these days), but here I am to tell you about Warby Parker's collaboration with Karlie Kloss. Spoiler: it's really awesome. When the peeps at Warby Parker contacted me about helping spread the word, I'd already heard of the collection and obviously thought the new sunnies were beautiful; then when I read more about the cause behind the the collection, I fell even more in love! The three pairs they designed are the perfect mix of modern + classic. But the best thing about them is that each sale will benefit Edible Schoolyard NYC—an organization that helps low-income public schools by providing kitchens, gardens, and other tools to encourage a healthy lifestyle. How cool is that?
As I was looking into this collaboration more and scouring[/drooling over] Warby Parker's amazing selection, I also learned that the company donates a pair of glasses to someone in need with every single pair that they sell. Maybe this is relatively common knowledge, but I had no idea! Sure, there are some slightly more affordable glasses websites out there, but if you happen to find your favorite pair via Warby Parker you can rest assured that you're helping a great cause (times two if you order a pair from the Karlie Kloss line!). And I'd say that's worth every penny.
