Did you know that three-quarters of the population wear glasses? A pair of glasses has become the latest must-have accessory, regardless if used to improve vision or not. Personally, I’m not really into the whole wearing-glasses-if-you-don’t-actually-need-them-look, (but it’s totally okay if you are –I’m less than a month away from thirty and you know, I don’t think I’m really cool enough to pull it off). However, sunglasses on the other hand are my total go-to at this time of year!
I know how some people have several pairs, sometimes drawers full, of sunglasses. For me, (until today) I just have two pairs –a pair that lives in my car, and a pair that live in the house/my bag that I ultimately lose regularly. I am always trying new sunglasses on when I am out shopping, but I rarely commit to purchasing a new pair of frames for myself. In addition, it can be a struggle to find a pair of frames that suit your face shape, even if you love them on the display stand.
Who are Ottica?
Ottica is an online retailer for prescription eyewear, creating a “house of brands” for prescription glasses, designed to give their customers access to the top designers worldwide. They sell a variety of quality frames –both eyeglasses and sunglasses- in a variety of styles, shapes and colours, from the most trusted brands at online prices.
I was invited by Ottica* to look at the website and their vast collection of eyewear, as I am not a glasses wearer, my focus was on sunglasses.
Transform your look with a pair of stylish frames

I love these frames, they are so modern and stylish and completely different to what I would normally pick for myself. From my post, a little while ago about my love for animal print, is it any wonder that when I saw these I knew I had to have them.
The saddest thing though is that these sunglasses are too big for me (cries), but as I mentioned earlier, it can often be quite tricky to order sunglasses and eyewear that suit your face shape, especially online without trying them on first so you can be sure the size is right and the style suits you.
These Winslow style frames are classic and understated, but look amazing on; I am literally in love with these frames as they suit me (I hope you agree), and go with almost every outfit and occasion.
I have not actually heard of the brand Charlett before but my first impressions of them are really good.
Delivery & Custom Charges
After I placed the order for both sunglasses, delivery (from the USA) was super duper quick. The only thing I would just make you all aware of though is that depending on how much you spend on the Ottica website, you might incur custom charges; delivery of the package was fine, but a few days later, I began getting text messages from DHL about owing money.
Overall, I would definitely recommend that you check out Ottica when you are on the search for some new eyewear.
Until next time x
