Getting Cozy with Polette :: Glasses Review
|Glasses: c/o Polette|
First off, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas (if you celebrated). It was an extremely simple day for my family and I, as usual, and I wouldn't have it any other way. We busted out the traditional Christmas cassette tapes (yes, we still play those), and then went even more old school by playing dad's old records on his turntable. As for gifts, I received a very practical and useful gift that I've been wanting for my upcoming move - a mini fridge! Thanks mom and dad!
Moving on, let's get on to the review portion of this post.
Today I'm here to talk about a new glasses company called Polette.
Pierre Wizman is an inspiring young man with a vision - for glasses! At 16, he quit school and decided to build his own company from scratch. With the help of his associate, Pauline Cousseau, they launched their website in August 2011. From there, it was only a matter of time before the media picked up on the affordable new eyewear site and their chic designs. While this is a France-based company, they deliver outside of Europe for a shipping fee of just $4.99!
I'm wearing the Marquis glasses, an incredibly chic frame that's made of faux wood - though believe me, it's quite convincing in appearance!
I love the design of these glasses, and have received quite a few compliments on them already. While the typical black frames are popular (I own a pair of those too...), they've become almost stale because of the over-usage of them. These wooden frames give that same hipster vibe, only with a fresher spin.
They're comfortable, fit well, and are flattering. I gave Polette my prescription, and it took a couple weeks for them to process and cut the lens, but it was worth the wait. I love my new glasses and plan on switching them in as my new, main pair.
