To Read: How Was Your Mercury Retrograde?

Mercury, the planet of communications, contracts, and general flakiness, takes fairly frequent holidays. (Does he get paid leave?) As you struggle through the murk and mist of his absence, take a moment with these firm and stolid tomes.

Step Inside the Warby Parker Green Room

This weekend, we officially opened our fourth L.A. store, the Warby Parker Green Room, and it’s a real beauty.

This past weekend, we officially opened our fourth L.A. store, the Warby Parker Green Room, and it’s a real beauty (we’re celebrating with a contest, in case you missed it!). It’s got a green screen studio where anyone can record 15-second films for free, a classic movie-theater-stye marquee out front, and an arresting original mural by artist Alia Penner.

See the space in all its Hollywood-inspired glory below, and if you’re in town, come in to shoot the miniature drama/thriller/rom-com/action flick of your dreams—you’ll get a free copy to share everywhere.

It’s called the Warby Parker Green Room, after all…

Casting Call!

Tomorrow, we’re opening the Warby Parker Green Room on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. It’s our fourth (count ’em) store in the city—and we’re celebrating with a contest!

Tomorrow, we’re opening the Warby Parker Green Room on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. It’s our fourth (count ’em) store in the city—and we’re celebrating with a contest! But first, a little background:

In a green-screen-powered studio set off from the rest of the space, visitors can record their own 15-second films against a ton of otherworldly backdrops. Anyone who partakes will walk away with a free video in their inbox, ready to share wherever using #warbygreenroom. Our array of backdrops includes…

A tropical aquarium scene
An enormous pepperoni pizza
A fantastical weather map by L.A. artist Alia Penner
A palm tree-lined boulevard (had to!)
And more!

To celebrate, we’re inviting everyone to post their most creative mini masterpieces on Instagram. (Make sure to include #warbygreenroom and #contest when you do!) We’ll be watching, and awarding one lucky winner with any pair of prescription or non-prescription sunglasses they like, plus a print of the original artwork that L.A.-based artist Alia Panner created for the store. (She’s also the mind behind the fantasical weather map background above.)

The full terms and conditions are here. And…action!

We’re Open at the Pizitz and the Pru!

A couple of weeks ago, we opened up shop inside two iconic buildings in two different cities: the Pizitz in Birmingham and the Prudential Center in Boston.

A couple of weeks ago, we opened up shop inside two iconic buildings in two different cities: the Pizitz in Birmingham and the Prudential Center in Boston.

Coquette New Orleans

We’re super-excited about both spots. Our store at the Pizitz sits in the Pizitz Food Hall, which is great because the food is A+ and trying on frames can work up quite an appetite. Inside, we’ve got a geometric mural that we designed with all our favorites shades of blue—and we’ve got a limited-edition frame, Madison in English Oak with Flash Mirrored Pacific Blue lenses, that you’ve gotta see while it’s still around.

Our Prudential Center space features a mural of the building’s impressive exterior (lit up with, created just for us by Jason Munn, whom we’ve been lucky enough to work with on a few other stores in Chicago, Austin, and San Jose. We’ve got an exclusive, not-here-forever frame at the store as well: Percey in Charcoal Fade with Flash Mirrored Pacific Blue lenses. (What can we say? We love blue flash lenses.)

If you’re in either city, make sure to swing by and say hi.
