We promised we’d post a follow up about our Warby Parker adventure, so here it is!
If you’re not familiar with Warby Parker, you need to be. The company’s mission is twofold: to provide stylish, affordable glasses and to give a pair to someone in need whenever a pair is purchased through their website (Read more about their philosophy and business model here).
Based out of New York City, the company sells eyewear directly to customers through their website to keep the prices low. But if you live in Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, LA, or San Diego, there’s good news. The Warby Parker School Bus is coming to you!
What is this school bus, you ask? WP staffers are currently traveling cross country on a tour called the Warby Parker Class Trip (#wpclasstrip for you instagramers and tweeters). They’ve taken a school bus and converted into a comfortable, unique showroom for their eyewear. Complete with a map of their trip, an old school radio, mirrors galore, and comfortable seating (the original seating was gutted), the WP bus is pretty awesome.
The bus will stop in each of these cities for a couple weeks, spreading the word about WP eyewear and building community with the folks who visit the bus (check out the schedule here). When the bus came to D.C., A. Reese first went alone while M. Ricks battled the sniffles. She spent about an hour on the bus, trying on several frames and just hanging out with Phineas and the other staffers. Of course it was only right for R&R to return together….and look fabulously stylist during the visit.
Check out what we wore:
We had a blast on the WP bus–so much so that we took way more pics than we could include in these collages. We’ll upload the others to our youtube channel later, so stay tuned.
If you’re in Nashville,ATL, Dallas, LA, or San Diego, get on the bus! WP is a cool company and the staffers are cool too. If you’re not in one of those cities, you can alway browse the website or try on frames at home for free. Check it out: http://www.warbyparker.com.
Until next time…
