I remembered when I first realized that I needed glasses.
There's a main hallway at work that stretches the entire length of the building. When I first started working there, I could easily make out who was coming towards me even if they were on the other end of the corridor. However, about 7 months into my employment; I started to notice that not only was I having trouble distinguishing coworkers but I felt my own face squirming around itself in grotesque form.
It was the telltale sign of needing to see an Ophthalmologist: Giving out accidental b*tchy looks in an impulsive effort to see better by squinting your eyes.

And I have been since that point. I still love other brands of course, but they are simply hard to beat for their niche.
That's why I was beyond excited to go visit them when they had their Warby Parker Class Trip stop in Portland. I was excited for a few reasons:
1) Shopping on a bus.
2) Browsing their new styles.
3) Free ale (Good beer is made of wheat, which is basically like eating "Wheaties". Michael Jordan knows what I'm talking about. #90sGirl).

But even after expecting good things, I was pleasantly surprised to note the effort they have put into this event: live music, vibrant digs and a staff that was excited to showcase their product.
So from a loyal customer who has been there from the start, thank you for letting me help celebrate your success!
And just in case you are starting to side-eye: I went to this entirely as a customer, receiving nothing free or special on account of my blog. Which makes me a fool, I tell ya!
Tried Warby Parkers before?
