The Warby Parker Annex is finally open in Wynwood! Located right next to the Wynwood Walls, behind Joey's Italian, the store seriously looks like the inside of an eight foot pool, only instead of pool toys there are small shelves of glasses with several books featured beneath. There are plenty of mirrors, but if you can't find space to try on some shades, then ask the store specialists to snap a few shots of you on their iPads. Oh, and make sure you bring your own prescription so they can start working on those spectacles asap.

But the coolest element of this store by far is the overhead photo booth, which subtly hangs above a hard and curvy yellow lounger. Beware though: you only have ten seconds to get from the control screen to the chair before the camera goes off, so prepare to sprint a few feet. But no diving allowed. Lifeguard's orders.
