tuesday trendsday: one for one

Okay, I'll admit it. This one for one thing isn't new. It's not exactly up and coming, on the cusp, what have you; it's more tried and true. Now, iconic if you will. Still a trend is a trend. I'll explicate. It is probably best known ( and I believe originated in 2006) by TOMS, the uber hip shoe company, started by a man, aptly named, Tom. Who, for every shoe (and now sunglasses) purchased, gives one to a child in need. Neat, right?  Well, if you haven't heard, Warby Parker does the same with specs. We love them and think you should too. With a great selection of cool frames/colors for every face, we deiced to give their five specs for five days at home try-on program a go. 

The packaging is great and will be super easy to return ( totally free shipping both ways). And, they arrived within two days of my frame selection online! Talk about fast free shipping.

Our five frames. Notice the minty green nails... hee hee. Yes, we're a little obsessed with this color at the moment.

We were planning on sharing pics of all five, but seriously, most of them looked so absolutely ridiculous on us, that we didn't want to scare you away - not yet anyway! Think that we'll be going with The Webb (as revealed yesterday). Can't wait for our "official" eye piece to arrive. Now we just need to get our hair color back to where it was... a much lighter, sandy blond shade.

Oh, and if you love TOMs, their ballet flats arrive Feb 1st! 

What do you think?


  1. Those look great on you! What a cool dea for companies to do, that's really awesome. Makes me want to buy a pair of Toms just to support this initiative! Can't wait to check out their ballet flats.
