This outfit is not necessarily a tribute to French fashion…however, I do have a new accessory from France I am excited to tell you about! Also, I have to get this off my chest before we go any further…it was driving me absolutely bonkers that I couldn’t figure out how to put the little accent mark above the “e” in tres for the title. But, oh well…life goes on! Haha. (*Update: Jen from Dressing With Class taught me how to fix this. Thank you, Jen!)

The dress in this post was a really exciting find for me. I’ve actually had it for about 5 years, and I had no idea what happened to it…until I found it tucked away in a spare closet at my mom’s house this weekend. It’s a little out of my normal realm of style, but it’s good to break things up now and again…especially when the weather was as warm as it was this past weekend (the upper 50s – thank you Mother Nature!). This dress was also the perfect compliment to my fancy new sunglasses.

Polette sunglasses

My sunglasses are from Polette, a French eyewear company…that is now expanding globally and had asked me to collaborate with them!

Their eyeglasses and sunglasses are all very reasonably priced (designer’s frames from $6.99 to $9.99 and anti-scratching anti-reflective lenses from $9.99 to $75)…and they are very stylish! You also have the option for all the frames to order them with or without a prescription lens. And I do actually wear prescription glasses, but I only wear them after I take my contacts out before bed. So, I opted to try some fashion sunglasses (no prescription)!

I really enjoyed the “try on this frame” feature of Polette’s website. It was a good way to judge how these sunglasses would sit on my face. I like my sunglasses to sit higher vs. skimming my cheeks (that drives me bonkers). And this feature accurately showed me just how these glasses would sit. Neato!

I am also impressed with the quality of these glasses. They feel very durable and they are very comfortable to wear throughout the day. The only negative I have to say about Polette is that the shipping takes a while. Once I placed my order for these sunglasses it took well over 2 weeks for them to reach me. Which really isn’t a big a deal, but I’ve gotten rather used to super fast shipping (Amazon Prime has ruined me. Haha.).

And this won’t be the last you hear of Polette…stay tuned for giveaway I’ll be hosting with them! 🙂

inverted bob

And before I let you guys go…did anyone notice I had my hair freshened up a bit? (Don’t feel bad if you didn’t…it’s not that terribly different.) I dyed it a bit darker and had it cut into an inverted bob. Nothing too drastic, but my hair need a refresher (it was fading into a very odd color)!

What do you guys think of this look and my new sunglasses? Would you order from Polette? Let me know in the comments!

    Wowie! That dress – so elegant, so chic. And I love the shades. Beautiful.
    Also I did notice there was something different with your hair. It’s a bit shorter again. But it looks very nice!
    Much love,
    Mona

    Tres chic indeed! You look gorgeous in all black and im loving those bow heels! Black sunnies are always good to have. They go with everything. I just got a pair ordered from Polette myself. I can’t wait to get them!

    Hi, Lindsey! Loved your style, shoes and hair! The Polette glasses are also really beautiful, we can see it’s high quality! The tres! “Accent aigu” (acute accent), like é and its examples: amitié, tenacité. Accent grave, è, like très. I only wrote that, hope you don’t mind, because I used to be a teacher 🙂 and I remembered the rule to teach students… good times, maybe I will be a teacher again one day! Indeed, the outfit was très chic and you look beautiful! I am following you now!

      Hi, Denise! Thank you so much for the kind words and for following my blog – I’ll be sure to follow back! Haha and I don’t mind you writing that at all..I just wish I could have gotten the ` above the e on my title…but I have no idea how to do that in WordPress. 🙂 Very cool that you were a teacher! 🙂

    I love this look. I feel like I constantly say that when commenting on your stuff. But if it’s true and it’s nice, you should say it as much as possible. there’s just something about black dresses and red lipstick that scream “that’s right, I’m a classy vixen. And I probably have somewhere very important to be!” I’m getting closer and closer to having enough money for a big staple purchase and it might just be a LBD!

    You look fabulous! I just love the cut of your dress, and the length of your necklace is just perfect!

    BTW…if you want an accent you can google the word, then copy it and paste it into the post title. Probably not the “right” way to do it, but it works!

    You are rocking that dress, girl! Love how you rediscovered it after 5 years! And as always, I love how these heels are perfect for this very chic outfit! 🙂

    Also, totally in love with those sunglasses.. I also need to find a couple of different ones for my outdoor pics.

    And uhm, doing stuff with the e.. I just fiddle with the ALT-codes.. either 130, 137 or 138.. works every time! 🙂
