9 Great Sunglasses for Summer From Warby Parker

Warby Parker is renowned for great deals on stylish prescription eyeglasses. But did you know Warby also has a fantastic—and HUGE!—selection of sunglasses? It’s true. From Midcentury to Aviator and everything in between, with colored, smoked, and mirrored lenses, in all sizes and in most any price point.

If you thought Warby Parker was only a one-stop shop for great glasses, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Head on over to warbyparker.com today and discover nearly 40 sunglass frames and dozens of lens styles to suit your individual taste.

Warby Parker designs all of its sunglasses in-house and makes them with high-quality acetate. It’s durable, hypoallergenic, and capable of holding exceptionally rich colors, plus it’s made to last for years. Every frame is hand-assembled and polished. After the raw material is cut into shape using a CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. Warby also uses stainless steel and titanium for metal-framed glasses, because of their high strength-to-weight ratio.

Then they custom-cut and polish the edges of your lenses, all of which are treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. Warby Parker’s impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Lenses come standard with non-prescription glasses, but prescription lenses with all these features are also available (up to $ 120 extra). Once you choose your frames, simply upload an image of your eyeglasses prescription to your order (snap a photo or scan it in) and submit your doctor’s contact information. If you don’t happen to have your prescription handy, you can just send it to Warby Parker later.

I’ve Never Ordered Glasses Online. Help!

Online glasses have exploded in popularity over the last few years, and much of that is due to Warby Parker. The company was one of the pioneers of the online eyeglass market. Warby Parker makes the selection process simple by offering an excellent set of guidelines on how to choose the right glasses for you. Basically, there are five main rules to follow when buying new glasses:

Your pupils should be near the center of the lens
The lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
Your eyebrows should not be inside the glasses; let ’em fly!
When you smile, your cheeks shouldn’t push the frames up
The frames shouldn’t slide down your nose

If you receive your frames and you love them but they don’t fit quite right, Warby Parker will fix the following issues at any of its retail locations, free:

The frames are too tight or loose behind your ears
The temples are too long or too short
The temples are too tight or loose at the side of your face
The frames are crooked or slide down your face

And if you’re not close to a Warby Parker location, most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. If they do charge you, WP will reimburse you up to $ 50 for a single adjustment within 30 days of purchase. Just email them the bill.

So if you still need to pick out a new visage for summer, head over to Warby Parker today and check out their huge selection of sunglasses. It’s a lot easier than you think. We’ve put together a selection of nine great sunglasses from Warby Parker below.

Raider Wide Aviators in Brushed Ink with Flash Gold Lenses

Some may prefer a more traditional aviator colorway, and Warby certainly offers those. That said, we rather like where this black framed/gold lensed sunglass is headed. Sharp but a bit sinister. Available in Wide widths.

Also available in Polished Gold with either Green or Mirrored Gold Lenses 

Get It: Pick up the Raider Wide Aviator (from $ 145) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Logan Sunglasses in Jet Black with Grey Gradient Lenses

The acetate eyewire is offset in stainless steel for a modern spin on a vintage shape. The round shape is academic, while the colorway and materials are playful.

Get It: Pick up the Logan Sunglasses (from $ 145) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Harrison in Silver with Whiskey Tortoise with Bottle Green Lenses

Metal-framed lenses wrapped in a thin stripe of tortoise shell makes for a sexy pair of sunglasses. The soda-bottle green lenses only augments the vintage charm.

Get It: Pick up the Harrison Sunglasses (from $ 195) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Harris Sunglasses in Crystal Smoke with Mirrored Blue Lenses

Warby has sprinkled a bit of contemporary flair into this traditional silhouette, but iconic midcentury construction will never go out of style. We love the light blue lenses as well as the enticing price point.

Get It: Pick up the Harris Sunglasses (from $ 95) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Abe Aviator in Polished Sliver with Vintage Blue Lenses

We like the angular charm of these aviators; it’s a fresh twist on an old fave. We especially like the polarized blue lenses. The stainless steel is hypoallergenic.

Also available in Brushed Ink black with dark lenses.

Get It: Pick up the Abe Aviators (from $ 145) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Avery Sunglasses in Hazelnut Tortoise Matte

A hip, contemporary spin on trad tortoise shell frames, the Averies feature a stainless steel brow bar. Smallish lenses look better on thinner faces.

Also available in black with gold hardware.

Get It: Pick up the Avery Sunglasses (from $ 145) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Haskell Sunglasses in Crystal

With round lenses and slim temple arms, these shades manage to be clear-framed without being too funky. It’s a fun but mature visage.

Get It: Pick up the Haskell Sunglasses (from $ 95) at Warby Parker

Warby Parker

Barkley Sunglasses in Antique Shale Fade with Green-Grey Lenses

The Barkley manages to pull off the neat trick of looking both midcentury and contemporary at once. Made purely of acetate, so they wide lenses belie their light weight.

Also available in black mette with dark lenses.

Get It: Pick up the Barkley Sunglasses (from $ 95) at Warby Parker

 

 

Warby Parker

Durand Sunglasses in Tortoise with Classic Blue Lenses

Sometimes the best approach is the simple one. The shades take a classsic silhouette and spice it up with blue lenses. Subtle but sexy.

Dana Sommer is a hard-working college student down on her luck. After losing her scholarship due to budget cuts, she now must find a way to, not only pay her tuitions, but also get her hands on $ 50,000 to settle her brother's gambling debt, or she could lose the only family she has left.

On 1st June, 1967 The Beatles released their ground-breaking studio album…Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll album ever made”, it marked a pivotal moment in the 60’s and went on to become one of the biggest selling records of all time. Combining firsthand accounts of the events with rare and unseen footage forensically unearthed from mainstream archives and private collectors, this new music documentary by acclaimed director Alan G. Parker, picks up on the band as they end their grueling tour schedule in August 1966 (coincidentally following on from Ron Howard’s Eight Days A Week) to return to the studio to record this landmark album. This insightful and revealing film journeys through various solo projects to the release of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane’, touching on Flower Power, John Lennon meeting Yoko Ono, LSD, Meditation, Jimi Hendrix, the death of Brian Epstein, Abbey Road Studios and the Magical Mystery Tour. Directed by Alan G. Parker, an Emmy nominated music director whose credits include: Hello Quo, Monty Python: Almost The Truth / Who Killed Nancy? / Rebel Truce: The History Of The Clash).

My Wife & Kids Star Parker McKenna Posey Is Now A Certified Dime | Bangin Candy [Photos]

Child stars grow up to be adults. That’s just the circle of life. What happens with the actor or actress after they move on from the show that gave them their first taste of fame depends on upbringing, focus and sometimes a bit of luck.

In the case of Parker McKenna Posey, the former cute and cuddly kid who starred as Kady Kyle opposite Damon Wayans and Tisha Campbell-Martin on the popular 2000s sitcom My Wife and Kids, time has been extremely kind to all of her attributes. Since the show ended in 2005, Posey has scooped up numerous roles on made-for-TV films to keep her skills sharp and it appears she hasn’t even begun to scratch the surface on her full potential.

Now 20-years-old, the young starlet has gained a sizeable following on her social media accounts because quite frankly, she looks damn good. However there is a fine line between flaunting ones asset and just being plain thirsty for attention. Thankfully, PKP knows how to make her selfies look classy and sexy simultaneously. She’s also a diehard Problem fan so she also knows good Hip-Hop music when she hears it.

Check out what Parker McKenna Posey looks like in the present day via the gallery below. Nothing but excellence ahead.

Condé Nast Hired Dorothy Parker 100 Years Ago

2015-03-17-1426560542-7703815-parker100_2.jpg
Vogue added Dorothy Parker to its staff in 1915.

Dorothy Rothschild was 21 and living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan when she mailed a letter that changed her life. It happened 100 years ago, sometime in early 1915. The moment set the scene for her to become Dorothy Parker.

The letter she placed in the mailbox contained a 36-line poem. Nine quatrains in a precisely formed rhyme scheme of A-B-A-B. “Any Porch” begins:

“I’m reading that new thing of Locke’s —
So whimsical, isn’t he? Yes — “
“My dear, have you seen those new smocks?
They’re night-gowns — no more, and no less.”

She went on to destroy the two un-named resort denizens, in conversation no doubt picked up from her many summers spent at Long Island hotels. It concludes:

“So she’s got the children? That’s true;
The fault was most certainly his –“
“You know the de Peysters? You do?
My dear, what a small world this is!”

The young woman put a two-cent stamp on the envelope addressed to:

Vanity Fair
443 Fourth Avenue
New York City

In 1915 the magazine was in its infancy. The debut of Dress and Vanity Fair was in September 1913, published by Condé Montrose Nast. The 36-year-old had acquired the moribund Vogue — launched in 1892 as a ten-cent weekly fashion journal — in 1909 and made it successful. Nast got his feet wet in magazines during ten years in the advertising department at Collier’s Weekly. He hired journeyman art director Frank Crowninshield as editor for the March 1914 issue. “Crowny” promptly dropped “Dress” from the title and added humorous pieces. Down the hall was Edna Chase, in the office, Mrs. Francis Dane Chase. She was promoted to editor of Vogue, a position she would hold almost until her death in 1957.

2015-03-17-1426560361-9667570-parker100_1.jpg
Frank Crowninshield, Condé Montrose Nast and Edna Chase, circa 1915.

The poem was accepted for publication for the September 1915 issue of Vanity Fair, and the poet was sent a check for $ 5. Inspired by this, young Dorothy put on her best dress, gloves and hat. She splashed on perfume and took the IRT down to the offices of Condé Nast Publications to ask for a job. Thirty years later, Crowny remembered the job interview well.

‘Any Porch’ was the ‘first thing she had ever written’… Her father had died just ‘a month or two’ earlier. She was an orphan. She was working at a dance school, even though she lacked ‘the faintest idea’ how to teach, couldn’t distinguish the lame duck from the bunny hug and was expecting to be fired any day. She was ‘tiring’ of her musical career, which she had learned was not a bowl of cherries. ‘A literary life would suit her better. Could Mr. Crowninshield giver her a job?

In the era before Linked In, the job candidate’s credentials must have looked particularly thin. Not only did she not have a college education, she didn’t even possess a high school diploma. Her education stopped when she was 15. Her mother died when Dorothy was 4 and her father, a successful rag trade entrepreneur, when she was 20. But the biggest fib was that she was a neophyte writer. The truth was that she had been writing poems since she could pick up a pencil, even if the only audience was her family. With her father and older siblings, she went to the theater. And she read. Constantly.

Crowny liked the comely girl, who stood four feet eleven inches, had jet-black hair and big dark eyes. Her poor eyesight necessitated wearing eyeglasses. Crowny told the applicant he ran a small team on his young staff. But in the neighboring office, see Mrs. Chase and you can join her at Vogue. The redoubtable Mrs. Chase has been with the magazine since 1895 and can use you. The salary is ten dollars a week.

Today her position would be described as an editorial assistant. Chase and the new girl were born nearby each other on the New Jersey Shore, the former in Asbury Park and the latter in Long Branch. That was all they had in common. Fifty years later, Chase said Parker’s term had been a “brief, stormy, but exhilarating period.”

In 1915 a small, dark-haired pixie, treacle-sweet of tongue but vinegar-witted, joined our staff. Her name was Dorothy Rothschild and she was engaged to do captions and special features. She wrote a piece about houses called ‘Interior Desecration’ and more than one decorator swallowed hard and counted ten before expressing his feelings about it. Showing rare courage, she risked her head in the line of duty and turned in her experience under the title ‘Life on a Permanent Wave’ when the wave was still a hazard and its most permanent aspect was the entire day required to accomplish it.

She was a member of the Vogue staff from late 1915 to 1918. Among the copy attributed to her was the famous caption, among an illustration of ten styles of nightgowns, in October 1916: “From these foundations of the autumn wardrobe, one may learn that brevity is the soul of lingerie.” The following year she wrote about weddings, at the same time she was getting married herself, to Eddie Parker, a Paine Webber stockbroker. “In all this sad world there is no sadder sight than that of the groom standing at the altar, more married against than marrying. He is mercifully allowed to turn his self-conscious back to the wedding guests, who regard him with the same glitter in their eyes with which spectators at a bullfight look on the bull.”

Parker wrote some of the earliest trends pieces for Vogue. From being a secret knitter (“People look at me, and sooner or later, they invariable say, ‘You seem like a sensible sort of girl — there is no foolishness about you.’ Old people tell me this as a compliment, young people as an insult.”), to exercise routines, light verse and fashions for dogs. She worked in an office where maids dusted every afternoon and women wore gloves indoors. Parker looked at the raw silk curtains, bleached oak furniture and oil paintings on the walls, and remarked, “Well, it looks just like the entrance to a house of ill-fame.”

While she was on the Vogue staff, she wrote pieces for Vanity Fair on a steady basis. Crowny bought three more poems in 1916, along with a series on manners and etiquette. She wrote, “Why I Haven’t Married, Sketches of My Seven Deadly Suitors” in 1916 (“and these are the seven reasons why my mail is still being addressed to ‘Miss'”.) In 1917, shortly after her marriage, Eddie Parker enlisted in the army and shipped out to France to drive an ambulance. While he was away she made her first career change, when Vanity Fair poached her. She was 24.

The next five years saw her rise from anonymous copywriter to boldface name. In early 1918 Crowny handed Parker the reins of the monthly drama column. This was unprecedented to have a woman writing for a national magazine serve as its Broadway critic. Parker’s only background in theater was that she was a life-long fan; from the time her father took her to see Maude Adams play Peter Pan when she was kid. Now she would be going to the theater five nights a week and writing upwards of 4,000 words a month on what she saw.

Dorothy Parker broke ground in a male-dominated profession when women in America could not vote, buy real estate on their own or get a passport using their maiden name. The Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting voting rights, wasn’t ratified until the summer of 1920 and other women’s equality issues would take years to pass. Unless other sources say otherwise, Parker was the only female critic on Broadway. (When the New York Drama Critics’ Circle launched, in 1935, all nine critics were men. There has never been a female president of the group.)

When she was sitting in the aisle seat for Vanity Fair, she was witness to the last great era of live theater in America before radio, talking pictures and television decimated attendance. In New York, close to 80 theaters were in operation, compared to 35 or so today. Sometimes as many as seven new shows debuted in one night. In the Twenties more than 200 shows opened every season; the 2012-2013 season saw just 46 shows open.

And what shows she was in the audience to see. John Barrymore in Hamlet and every edition of the Ziegfeld Follies are some of her most fascinating reviews. Parker reviewed some of the biggest names of the era: Ethel Barrymore, Fanny Brice, George M. Cohan, Katherine Cornell, W. C. Fields, Helen Hayes, the Lunts, Will Rogers and more. She was there for the debut of Eugene O’Neill plays, Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson in blackface, new music by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the Gershwins. All of her reviews have been collected in Dorothy Parker Complete Broadway, 1918-1923.

2015-03-17-1426560629-2060078-parker100_3.jpg

A short time after moving to Vanity Fair, Parker welcomed the magazine’s first managing editor. Robert Benchley had flunked out of daily newspapers, but he was perfectly suited to working on humorous stories. The pair became lifelong friends and soul mates. When Robert E. Sherwood was added as staff writer, they formed a triumvirate of office wisecrackers. Around this time the Condé Nast offices moved to 19-25 West 44th Street, steps from Fifth Avenue. This was helpful in June 1919 when a luncheon at the nearby Algonquin Hotel became a daily institution for the next several years. Benchley, Parker and Sherwood were charter members of this Vicious Circle of writers, critics, publicists and actors.

During the time she was on Vanity Fair she was given nearly free rein. In January 1919 she wrote:

Often, in those long quiet hours when I am caught in a subway block, or sitting in the dentist’s antechamber, or waiting for a Broadway car, I ponder sadly on the good old times that have passed beyond recall. Those were the happy days — the days when people rushed gladly to the theatre, enjoyed every minute of it, applauded enthusiastically, wished there were more and came out wreathed in smiles to spread abroad the glad tidings that ‘The show was great!’ Why, some of them even, of their own free will, went back to see the same play over and over again. Yes, those undoubtedly were the days.

The reviews were a sensation and Parker established herself as a critic with a keen eye and sharp wit. But her term at Condé Nast Publications came to a halt after she watched Billie Burke at the Liberty Theatre in November 1919. Burke, the second wife of Flo Ziegfeld, set Parker’s teeth on edge, primarily because she was 35 and still playing ingénue roles. Parker also loved to skewer Ziegfeld at any and every opportunity. Her review said:

…Fortunately safely out of China, is the setting of W. Somerset Maugham’s play Caesar’s Wife, is which Billie Burke is starred. There are but few flashes of Mr. Maugham’s brilliance in the dialogue, and the evening seems a long and uneventful one. Miss Burke, in her role of the young wife, looks charmingly youthful. She is at her best in her more serious moments; in her desire to convey the girlishness of the character, she plays her lighter scenes rather as if she were giving an impersonation of Eva Tanguay.

Ziegfeld hit the roof. He complained to Nast, and this doomed Parker. Crowninshield took Parker to the Palm Court at the Plaza on a Sunday afternoon in January 1920. Over tea and scones he fired her. The next day, Benchley and Sherwood resigned in protest.

That was the last office job Parker ever had, unless you count the Hollywood studios she toiled at for 15 years later. She went on to be a freelancer for the rest of her career. Immediately after leaving Vanity Fair, she went to Street & Smith, where she picked up her drama critic duties for another three years on Ainslee’s. When The New Yorker was created in 1925 by her Algonquin Round Table friends, Jane Grant and Harold Ross, she was the anonymous theater critic in the debut issue. Ross added her name to his make-believe editorial board.

Nearly 50 years after her death, Parker has more books in print that when she died. When Nast died in 1942 he was heavily in debt and his company shaky. However, he left it in the care of loyal and smart editors, who made big gains after World War II. Today the Condé Nast Media Group is one of the richest and most respected in the industry. Dorothy Parker’s legacy is secure, even if she’s only a footnote in the company’s long history.

Rumour has it: Rocker Graham Parker is back

TOMS and Warby Parker Aren't the Only Buzzworthy Brands

The success stories of both TOMS and Warby Parker have been written and written again, but there are two companies in their shadows that deserve your attention as well: Tortoise & Blonde and BucketFeet.

Founded just four years ago, eyewear brand Tortoise & Blonde has toured the country with musicians, received backing from Urban Outfitters and began building shop-in-shops in multiple Manhattan UO locations. BucketFeet, founded in 2011, has partnered with retail giant Nordstrom, counts Crate & Barrel founder Gordon Segal as an investor, opened a flagship brick-and-mortar shop in downtown Chicago and will launch a summer pop-up in Manhattan later this month.

2014-05-05-1.jpg

Tortoise & Blonde’s first shop-in-shop in downtown Manhattan.

I was introduced to these companies a few years ago while creating the official style segment of the South by Southwest Music Festival. My goal in creating this, then called Style X (read “Style By”), was to celebrate emerging brands that weren’t getting as much attention — and didn’t have as much money — as their well-known competitors. We had runway shows and speakers like the Man Repeller and Huffington Post’s own Anya Strzemien, but the heart of the showcase focused on pop-ups and up-and-coming brands.

Perhaps more than any other brand, Tortoise & Blonde benefitted tremendously from early SXSW exposure. The eyewear company was founded around the same time as the well-funded startup Warby Parker, but Tortoise & Blonde’s founders had a much deeper connection to people’s eyewear choices. While Warby Parker has been led with design and New York cool, Tortoise & Blonde was led by a successful optometrist, Dr. Steven Weisfeld, who serves as CEO with his son Evan as partner.

“We participated (in SXSW) very early in our company’s lifecycle, which was great because it made us start thinking more omni-channel. The e-commerce space was crowding rapidly and it was a great differentiator when raising capital and building out the brand,” said Evan, who ditched a high-paying finance gig to launch Tortoise & Blonde with his father. “We have also seen a higher conversion rate of prospects we meet at events and pop-ups that go on to purchase online versus ads purchased on Google and Facebook.”

Tortoise & Blonde initially met Urban Outfitters on their “Store on Tour” in the fall of 2011, about six months after its launch at SXSW. By the next year, the company launched a program of pop-up shops at existing and opening UO store locations across the country. In June 2013, Tortoise & Blonde launched its first permanent shop-in-shop with UO in their Noho store in NYC and will open two more Manhattan locations in the coming months at the Fifth Avenue and Herald Square UO stores.

“We are firm believers that brick-and-mortar will never truly be replaced by e-commerce. Customers still need to be assisted with purchases, especially with a product like eyewear,” added Evan, who serves as chief operating officer for the young company.

BucketFeet, based in Chicago, is co-founded by CEO Raaja Nemani – who also left the finance industry to start the company – and Chief Artist Aaron Firestein, who discovered his passion for artist-designed shoes while traveling in South America. Today, the company has a growing roster of artists around the world who design shoes that cater to everyone from skateboarding teenagers to soccer moms. (I recently purchased a pair designed by New York artist Jayson Atienza.)

2014-05-05-photo.JPG

BucketFeet’s flagship shop in Downtown Chicago.

With international reach and a passion for creativity, SXSW was the perfect platform for BucketFeet to raise awareness for its mission to put artist-designed sneakers on the feet of millions.

“SXSW is a unique event and one that fits within the culture of BucketFeet. It’s not about sales, it’s about connecting with creative people from all industries: tech, music, art, fashion, food,” co-founder Firestein said. “Pop-ups and in-person events have been huge for us. We are a footwear company, so giving people the opportunity to try on and feel our product is priceless.

“We want people (artists and consumers) to see BucketFeet as something much larger than just a shoe brand, and there’s no better way of doing that then by interacting in person.”

Despite a world where it seems it’s e-commerce everything, the role of pop-ups and brick-and-mortar has not fully declined – as evidenced by brands like Tortoise & Blonde and BucketFeet, and more importantly, by the investments of retail kingmakers like Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom. The ambitious model of TOMS is easier said than done, as is getting tens of millions in venture backing as Warby Parker has done. But what emerging brands like Tortoise & Blonde and BucketFeet demonstrate is that there exists a new path to fashion and retail success that looks a bit like the old path: one face-to-face interaction at a time.
