KimTuttle 's Thoughts:

Eye glasses have always been one of the chicest accessories and now with them trending in a maj way (I’ve even seen them on runways) I don’t even think twice about wearing my frames with one of my most stylish looks. I recently came across a french-based glasses company called polette who offers the most beautiful and stylish frames which can be ordered and customized via online purchasing. This is great news for someone like me who wears contacts on a daily basis and is looking for a non-nerdy alternative. I had a copy of my eyeglasses prescription handy and created a user account so that I could save my prescription information there. I began browsing by category, first clicking ‘trendy’ and instantly knew that I wanted the Bilbao pair in burgundy (and they’re only $9.99). After adding them to my cart, I was able to easily apply my saved prescription information to this pair and was so glad to see that I could select anti-reflective and scratching thin lenses. These frames can also be customized with a tinted lenses as a sunglasses option.

Bigger and bold frames are what is currently most popular and more particularly the wayfarer style. I love the classic and iconic look of these frames and felt daring to go with a dark red pair. For a sense of sophistication and chicness I had the inspiration of a french fashion magazine editor in mind which is why I opted for a minimalist look with bold red statement pieces.

Polette was launched four years ago by a young french entrepreneur with a vision of creating a company that offers affordable eye-wear that is stylish and original. By launching an online storefront, polette is able to remove the intermediate between the factory and the customer, therefore eliminating middle-man costs and allowing the customer to have the convenience of a larger selection of frames to choose from, lower costs and doorstep delivery.

This is such a innovative idea and as a person who is dependent daily on eyeglasses, I am so excited to have discovered a place where I can conveniently order frames. I’m already thinking of ordering a few different styles and colors to mix and match with my outfits throughout the week. Polette and I are excited to launch a giveaway and give one lucky reader a pair of prescription or non-prescription frames. We really want you to see how truly easy (and fun) it is to have the luxury of ordering eyeglasses from your home.

To be qualified to win, you must follow polette on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and then comment below on this post with the name and color of your fav pair of glasses from

Winner will be announced back here on Thursday 10/29- good luck!
