WARBY PARKER: Waterway Collection

I always randomly come across photos of people wearing sunnies and glasses from Warby Parker, and I must say I was incredibly excited when Brian who works at Warby Parker approached me with the brand new line of glasses - Waterway Collection - which is "inspired by warm coastal travels and landlocked staycations by the pool". This collection was launched recently (August 5), and I absolutely love the easy-going and simplicity of them. These glasses are nothing too bold or distracting; solely by matching these lovely glasses with a casual outfit, one can easily spice up his/her look. 

 A few of my personal favourites have got to be BENSEN [Blue Slate Fade] and both the PERCEYs [Crystal]. When I saw these babes, I immediately had the perfect outfit for it in my head. What do you think? (See below for photos) 

BENSEN is similar to a pair of glasses I own atm, but what makes Warby Parker's stand out is the interesting gradient of blue at the bottom of the frame. Clean and subtle. Definitely appropriate to rock 'em wherever you want.

Both the PERCEYs (here & here) have transparent frames - and I love that. It's so different and edgy, for sure will make you stand out in a crowd. Personally, I feel like having some transparency can often change how an ordinary outfit looks - it gives it character and confidence.

Thanks Brian for reaching out to me! :) Anyway if you have never heard of Warby Parker (which is hopefully NOT true), you guys should most definitely check them out on here. They offer a variety of high quality glasses & sunnies for a very reasonable price. Well, now I might go enjoy the 30-degree-weather in Hong Kong right now (yayyy humidity...) and see you later! More outfit posts and projects coming up, stay tuned! :D

Sometimes I feel like dresses are underrated. People seem to be very particular with styling outfits through a crazy mixing-and-matching sesh. Don't get me wrong - I thoroughly enjoy the process of combining different clothing w/fun designs - however, for someone who seeks a simple and minimalistic outfit-solution, dresses are perfect for them. Depending on which type of designs you suit best, you can easily manipulate the dress and create your very own look by throwing in some cute shoes, accessories, and a bag. To make it even better, it's so easy to style dresses that I bet you could put together a chic/adorable/street/classy look within 15 minutes. Do correct me if I'm wrong though. (;
