If you browse through my travel photos on this blog you’ll notice that I’m wearing one particular accessory in the vast majority of them… sunglasses.


Regardless of whether your trip is to a sunny paradise like Tulum, Mexico or to the frigid fjords in Norway, chances are, you’ll want to pack sunglasses.  A pair of sunglasses protects your eyes, makes it easier for you to see the gorgeous scenery though the glaring sunshine and are an effortless fashion statement.  (Plus, for those whirlwind adventures where you’re constantly on the go and spending your day outside, you can toss a pair of sunglasses on and spend less time primping for the day).

If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably had an issue finding the perfect pair of sunglasses before.  If so, consider giving FlashFrames a whirl.

Never heard the company?  You’ll be glad you did when it comes time for your next vacation. FlashFrames can help you find the perfect pair of sunglasses in just three easy steps.


Step 1:  Snap or upload a picture of your dream sunglasses.  

Reading your favorite blogs covering New York Fashion Week and see a fashion forward celeb wearing a pair of sunnies you’d die for?  Screenshot them and upload them to FlashFrames. Inspiration for your next pair of sunglasses can come from anywhere – your favorite travel bloggers, a friend whose sunglasses you’re lusting after or that stylish stranger on the subway (whom you’ve slyly snapped a photo of with your smartphone)…


Step 2:  Browse the array of sunglasses chosen for you based on the photo you uploaded. 

After you upload your photo, FlashFrames will show you similar sunglasses from the site.  Whether you are looking for designer sunglasses or an inexpensive, but fashionable pair, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.  The site highlights the glasses that are the “most similar” to the ones in your photo, as well as those that are “most affordable” and the best bargain.

Step 3: Purchase your new pair of sunglasses and enjoy your trip! 

If you’re springing for a designer pair of shades, you can shop without worrying about fakes because FlashFrames guarantee that their sunglasses are authentic.  The last thing you need to worry about before jetting off to Bali is whether you got ripped off.

On a side note, I found uploading my picture and using the site a lot of fun!  You can try for yourself here.
