Sunglasses Case Giveaway!

Hello everyone, welcome back!  A big congrats to Karla for winning last week’s Starbucks giveaway!  It’s so much fun for me to celebrate The Sol Compass’ third birthday with all of you!

 

This next giveaway is the product of a great need I have, and B’s unwavering patience.  My sister and I have been hoarding sunglasses in troves over the past two years, and we were recently brainstorming ways we could store them safely and functionally.  Luckily for us, B stepped up to the plate and tried his hand at creating a storage box for us, and the result was this beautiful handmade wooden box with a felt lining, to protect those lenses.  It’s one of the first items Bryan made for the Etsy shop he’s starting and today, I’m giving one away to you!  (Sunglasses not included, sorry ladies).

To Enter:
1) Follow @thesolcompass on Instagram!
2) Follow @thinkwoodthoughts on Instagram!
3) Leave a comment on this blog post when you’ve done both to officially enter!

The giveaway will end on Sunday at Midnight EST, so enter fast!

Thanks for stopping by and for always supporting The Sol Compass!

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!
