Pardon me for the grumpy face, but these pictures were taken on New Year's Day aka the day in which I came home at 6 in the morning from celebrating New Year's Eve. The gentle winter sun shining that day and the huge bags under my eyes, were the perfect opportunity to take out my new sunglasses from Polette, a French online optician.
As a fashion blogger, I'm always interested in discovering and collaborating with new brands. So, when the Polette PR team approached me with the company's concept and history, I have to say that I was quite intrigued. Polette was founded by Pierre Wizman, an entrepreneur who decided to leave school and start his own company at the age of 16. The team behind Polette try to distinguish their company from others by functioning as the only intermediate between the factory and the customer, which gives them the opportunity to sell their (sun)glasses at low prices, without affecting the quality of the goods. All of this makes them quite a market leader in France. Thumbs up for young talent!
Sunglasses have always been one of my addictions (next to lipsticks and shoes) and I love to go for the more bolder types. Polette offers more than 900 designs, needless to say that it was hard to pick just one, but I decided to go for their Vogue sunglasses. I love the shape, the printed frame and the see through, yet tinted glasses which seem to give the glasses a vintage touch.
What do you think of my new sunnies?
