• Winkwood Product Review - Fashion and Cookies

    A Power to the Girls sweatshirt and my new Winkwood sunglasses for this easy going outfit. This is my typical look when I want to be comfortable yet trendy, together with a pair of boyfriend or mom jeans - better if patched like this one and flat shoes (slip-ons are perfect). Motivational and Girl Power sweatshirts and t-shirts are so trendy right now and I have jumped on the wagon since I think we should be proud of what we are and also, above all, support each other. My new Winkwood sunglasses come directly from Melbourne, Australia, and I got immediately hooked by them. They are truly unique, with their wood carved frame, mirrored lenses with UV-400 protection and a matching carved wooden storage box.

    A relaxed outfit is truly perfect with the right accessories, and readers of my fashion blog know how important sunglasses are: I rarely go out without them!. Having my eyes protected from sunlight is essential and also sunglasses are part of my look. These Winkwood sunglasses bring the natural atmosphere of Australia and its magnificent landscapes and beaches in my everyday life. I was worried they'd be heavy because of the wooden frame, instead they are really lightweight and very beautifully done. My pair is called "Autumn Tale" and carry of Wayfarer kind of frame, but you can shop the entire collection clicking here, and see how many original, different shaped, colorful sunglasses Winkwood produces!. Power to the girls...and to sunglasses!

    I’m wearing “Desert Rose” which is carved with durable redwood with a sandy white finish, and a UV-400 lens in a fun pink/orange shade. The glasses are surprisingly lightweight. They come with a on-the-go pouch and a matching carved wooden storage box!

  • Winkwood Product Review - Color And Grace

    As the world celebrates Earth Day on April 22, let’s use our own actions to support this cause by wearing wooden sunglasses.

    Winkwood - Product Review Color And Grace

    My Desert Rose from Winkwood has gotten so much attention and quickly becomes a conversation starter.

    I love a pair of good wooden sunglasses because they balance beauty, function and the environment. Besides being a natural resource, they are also very stylish. What is very cool is that each pair, even though they are the same style and wood, will always look different due to the grain of the wood. No two are exactly alike. They are unique, just like us.

    My Desert Rose sunglasses are carved from a durable redwood with a sandy white finish with a pink/orange hybrid UV-400 lens. The frame provides me with the maximum protection from the sun. I really love the carved wooden storage box too! Doesn’t it look like a piece of art?

    I love seeing the makers of sunglasses take pride in their workmanship by creating art pieces as opposed to mass-produced plastic and metal frames. You can obviously see the craftsmanship in every single detail.

    Now, let’s talk about the function of my sunglasses. Winkwood uses a number of different material types that are resistant to standard wear and tear, and maintains their colors longer than most materials in the market. All of their lenses are tested to reflect or filter out 99% of UVA and UVB light, with wavelengths up to 400 nanometres (UV400). You know what the best part about their wooden sunglasses is? They float in water if you accidentally drop them. Now you don’t need to worry about losing your favorite pair of sunglasses when you are doing any water related activities.

    Winkwood is a Melbourne brand that loves to play with color, design and the unusual. They are very passionate about making cool products that each have a unique personality of their own. To be honest with you, I had a hard time picking mine because they are all so cute!;)

    Be bold, be you, and wear the unique handmade sunglasses from Winkwood.

  • Winkwood Product Review - Style Splash

    In a sea of big designer name sunglasses it’s both refreshing and gratifying to wear something no-one else is.

    Winkwood - Products Review Style Splash

    I’m rarely without a pair of sunglasses because my eyes are very sensitive to bright light, and over the years I’ve built up a nice little collection. As well as the classic styles I also love unusual eyewear, but often that means compromising on comfort. Not so with these Winkwood shades; they are the most comfortable pair I own. I took them on holiday to the UAE last week and I almost forgot I was wearing them they are so light! Dubai looked even more splendid viewed through these mirrored lenses. In a sea of big designer name sunglasses it’s both refreshing and gratifying to wear something no-one else is.

    Even though it wasn’t really the weather for short sleeves I wanted to wear this dress because it goes so well with the sunglasses.

    We took these photos before I went on holiday and it was very cold…you can probably tell from the goose bumps on my arms! Even though it wasn’t really the weather for short sleeves I wanted to wear this dress because it goes so well with the sunglasses. I’ve had it years but have only worn it once. I don’t usually wear above the knee skirts or dresses without tights so it probably wasn’t the most sensible purchase but the print hooked me. Finally, I got around to buying tights in colours other than black and brown (why did it it take me so long?) so I can finally get some wear out it.

    I chose a pair of navy ankle boots for a leg-lengthening effect and an orange bag to pick up on the orange in the dress. A pink bag would work equally well…maybe I’ll try that next time!
