I have worn glasses since I was about nine years old and luckily switched to contact lens as soon as my parents would allow it. It wasn't that I didn't love glasses, it was just that back then there were not companies around like Warby Parker to make them 'hip'. I am really excited because they have recently teamed-up with Leith Clark, the über-talented stylist (you can see some of her work here and here) to create a capsule collection that is debuting this week. The collection was inspired by smart-looking and smart-thinking individuals like writer and actress Zoe Kazan, who also fronts the campaign. By purchasing these frames not only will you look stylish but you will also be doing good since a percentage of the sales will be donated to Girls Up, a United Nations Foundation campaign mobilizing American girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs that provide life-changing opportunities to girls around the world. You can purchase the optical frames here and the sunwear here.
All frames retail for $145
