The insanity of NYFW has come and gone (and hopefully in the future I will be there to take it all). For now I must live vicarious through the instagram accounts, blogs, and fashion mag coverage of the creme de la creme o the fashion world. Yes, Spring 2015 gave us copious amounts of florals and pastels, however there were some very unique trends to pop up on the runaway.

When the folks at Warby Parker reached out to me about their upcoming collection I literally squealed. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but let's just say I was happy and verbally expressed so, much to my boyfriend's surprise. In all honestly, I have always loved Warby Parker, having recently snagged myself a pair. What is so awesome about the brand is that for every pair sold, a pair is given to someone in need with Buy a Pair Give a Pair. If that doesn't grab your attention, they also offer the option to try it before you buy it with their Home Try-On program.
The new collection, that launches today, does not disappoint, and has something for everyone. The folks at Warby Parker are launching nine new shapes with this collection. The frames come in drool worthy motifs such as crystal and tortoise. My favorite pair, well pairs, are the Coley Crystal and the Annette Petal Tortoise. They are the perfect blend of polished femininity and chicness.
Newish (new to me that is) online store Custom Plus offers some great pieces from sizes small to 4X. If you see something, its offered in your size. This is unlike most retailers that stock a completely desperate plus section. There is something beautiful for everyone. Check out their site for the full range of items currently offered.
These beauties from Custom Plus are going to me mine. REAL.SOON.
