A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Warby Parker Limited Edition Launch

This week WARBY PARKER teamed with  KILL SCREEN -- the video game arts and culture company.  Their content focuses on the intersection between games, play and other seats of culture from art to music to design.  WARBY PARKER is the retailer that creates fashionable affordable eye wear that we love.

Deets on the launch?  Simple.  It's an online video game AND cool glasses. The WARBY PARKER limited edition Burke frame, their best seller, features a distinct keyhole bridge, straight browline and is subtly embossed with the KILL SCREEN logo inside the temple in red.  Crafted from premium cellulose acetate and equipped with anti-scratch lenses plus anti-reflective coating to reduce the glare from's a win for all!  The brand even offers a five day/five frame try-it-before-you buy-it policy (with free shipping) and FSA options.  

The two companies mesh well as they are like minded according to the CEO and co-Founder, Neil Blumenthal.  Each "believe in beautiful design, unexpected moments, and not taking ourselves too seriously."  

This frame is available in Glacier Grey...a soft neutral that can be styled effortlessly.  I'm thinking something sporty but can't decide on my lip...nude or bold?  You choose.

Prices start at $95.
