Warby Parker



One of the lofty dreams I had when I first started this blog was being able to work with brands I love to share amazing products with people.  I’m constantly excited and blown away by the opportunities the cultivation of this internet space has presented to me.

Warby Parker is the epitome of an inspirational brand to me.  They create a chic, stylish, and functional product (prescription glasses and sunglasses) while adhering to their “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program.  By cutting out the middleman, Warby Parker is able to keep their products at an incredibly reasonable price; sacrificing none of the function or fashion, but gaining the incredible opportunity to donate to VisionSpring.


That quick history lesson aside, Warby Parker’s Spring 2016 Collection is the real deal and a perfect fit for The Sol Compass.  As the biggest color lover around, I am loving the bold hues and lively frame shapes.  Inspired by the circus and still 100% tasteful enough for daily life, there’s a pair for every free-spirit.  (I actually have this weird obsession with the old fashioned circus, and have a huge list of circus themed literature I adore, if anyone is interested).  That being said, circus inspired eyewear for the fun-loving individual is right up my alley.

If all the new styles look too good for you to possibly decide, one of my favorite Warby Parker features is the Home Try-On Kit, where you can try on five pairs of glasses for five days and pick which one suits you best.  Be sure to use the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn on Twitter and Instagram, so the WP team can find you and tell you which pair suits you best!

I’m sharing some of my favorite images from their beautifully inspired lookbook here today, but check back in soon to see how I style some of my new favorites!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Gifts That Give Back- World AIDS Day

Today, December 1, is World AIDS Day.  (RED) is a remarkable organization that has been striving to deliver an AIDS free generation since 2006.  With the holiday season now upon us, it is a great opportunity to choose to gift through an organization that also donates to the Global Fund in the hunt to end HIV/AIDS.


one // two // three // four // five // six

Perhaps my favorite item from this selection is the FEED (RED) 30 bag.  From Founder Lauren Bush Lauren, FEED- also founded in 2006- donates a portion of each bag to the United Nations World Food Programme.  So this particular bag can donate 30 days of life saving AIDS prevention pills AND also 30 meals through the United Nations Food Programme.

Every product purchased from Apple retail stores worldwide and online today, will help support (RED) to fight AIDS.  So if you were planning on making an Apple purchase for the holidays, today is the day to do it!
