Boss Babes: a company with all-female leadership

Topfoxx makes cool, quirky cat eye sunglasses that are 'NOT for your average girl'. Designed and located in New York and with over 250K Instagram followers, Topfoxx eyewear oozes with coolness. And what coolness! – can you get any cooler than establishing and making a company successful with all-female leadership in a male-dominated world?

“We are so honored to have an amazing community of empowering women!” they write on their page – I am honoured to become one of those women that helped this company rise up. Yes, we can do it!

Project Paz: a social goal

Not only is the company all-female, they have a collaboration with Project Paz charity, which was 

“Founded in 2010 by a group of Mexican friends in NYC with the goal to help the children of their brothers & sisters affected by the poverty & violence in Mexico. Their mission has become to help Latino children, both in the U.S. and Mexico, succeed academically by facilitating access to after-school art programs that help them thrive in their communities. They also lend help to different causes, most recent being children immigration shelters, which is the cause our collection has partnered up with.”

The idea to team up originates from the PR manager of the company, Priscilla Manzo, who, as a Mexican-American herself, felt that the current poverty that many Latino countries and communities face is an issue that really hit close to home for her. 

Topfoxx donates 15% of their proceeds to Project Paz.

Topfoxx Sunglasses Review

I tried out KittyKat  Black / Hot Purple, Candy Sunnies Rose Gold and KittyKat Rose Gold – this is my first Topfoxx review! Firstly I'll start with what all three sunnies had in common: shipping, packing, materials, carrying case.

Topfoxx Shipping

Topfoxx ship worldwide and even offer free shipping for orders above a certain amount ($100+ if you're in the US, $150+ for worldwide). They ship from New York and had arrived at our place in Budapest in less than a week, which is pretty impressive.

Topfoxx Packaging 

But what impressed me more, was the size of the package – Topfoxx really stream-lined the packaging, so much so in fact that at first, I thought it was just one pair of sunglasses, not three! Being conscious not to waste resources by using minimal packaging (especially reducing the amount of plastic used) is something that's really important to me (and something companies like Amazon could learn from)! I was happy to see Topfoxx were clued in. But it wasn't like they skimped on the packaging at the expense of the sunglasses – all three pairs were there and all three were 100% undamaged, of course. 


Topfoxx Materials

In keeping with that conscious mind-set I was further impressed to see that most of the sunglasses' frame is made of metal (rather than plastic, read more: why we're giving up plastic). The bit that sits on your ear is still hard plastic, but the rest of the frame is metal. The lenses are UV 400 protection (a must for anyone who cares about their eyes). 

Also, note that all Topfoxx eyewear is hand-crafted, they are “made by hand but some parts involve the use of machinery", hence why it's hand-crafted not hand-made. But still, I'm a huge fan of going back to our hand roots as much as possible. All three pairs have a high quality feel to them, I particularly liked the tear drop nose guards. 


Topfoxx Carrying case

These Topfoxx cat eye sunnies came with a cool carrying case. It's ingeniously designed so that it's a 3d triangular prism when your glasses are in them, to protect them; but folds down neatly to a flat package that fits easily in your bag when you're wearing the glasses. 

These carrying cases come free with all Topfoxx sunglasses, they're good quality and a nice little extra.

Topfoxx Sunglasses Review KittyKat Black / Hot Purple

The KittyKat Black / Hot Purple sunglasses were the original reason I fell in love with TopFoxx – they're just so out there, but in a cool way. I love the hot purple colour of the lenses, and the 'foxxy' or 'cat eye' frames.

But even though I was absolutely in love with them, I was a bit worried they might not suit my face shape (as is always the fear when I see sunglasses online). Luckily, if I can believe what others say, they work really well with my face shape – phew! Also, who the hell cares if it doesn't go well with my face shape? My body, my face, my rules. 


On this note – is it just me, or do they really really suit Tanbay too?

I think this is one of the best things about the Topfoxx KittyKat styled glasses: they work with many different face shapes! Heart, oblong, round, square, oval, no discrimination, because they can be classed as both 'round glasses' – because of the lenses – and 'framed glasses' – because of the 'cat eye' frame.

Topfoxx Sunglasses KittyKat Rose Gold Review

That KittyKat frame comes in Rose Gold too, so for those that don't fancy Hot Purple (or greedy people like me who want both), check out the KittyKat Rose Gold sunnies:

I still really love the shape, and I've got to say, although when I looked at them online my favourite were the Hot Purple, irl I like the Rose Gold ones even more. They're just so damn pretty!

And they have an unexpected extra advantaged – when pictured from different angles they look like a different pair of sunglasses, almost silver:

Topfoxx Sunglasses Candy Sunnies Rose Gold Review

The Candy Sunnies Rose Gold: again these were that same gorgeous Rose Gold. But these have a different frame to the KittyKats – a more subtle, elegant but still awesome frame:

I was happy to see that they suited the shape of my head, and think they'd be really great for more formal functions where the KittyKats might not be welcome.

Update: New Topfoxx Sunglasses Review

cat eye glasses

Two years after writing my original Topfoxx review I am happy to announce I still love them! They've expanded to So many cool new sunglasses: the Marilyns, the Brittanys, the Amelias and more - they're still quirky, they're still led by boss women and I'm happy to be part of it.

And of course, my original three Topfoxx sunglasses are still in use - they truly were made to last. 

Topfoxx Review Blue Light 

What's more, Topfoxx has branched out and are now offering Anti-Blue Light Glasses. 

What is Blue Light?

"Blue light is a range of light with the highest amount of energy in the visible light spectrum. Blue light is actually all around us, the sun being its main source. But with the advent of technology, it has now infiltrated our homes by way of smartphones, laptops, tablets, LED TVs, and even common household items that emit artificial light."


Blue Light might be the reason you find it hard sleeping or why your eyes are tired. And as someone who spends way too long in front of a screen everyday, I personally want to protect my eyes in any way I can.

The solution? Topfoxx Anti-Blue Light Glasses, which not only help protect your eyes, but make you look awesome in the process. Topfoxx glasses are no longer a thing of the summer, with the Anti-Blue Light Glasses, you can wear them all year round, anddd they even offer prescription glasses too!

Conclusion and Topfoxx promo code

All in all, and I'm sure you can tell by now, I'm super impressed by the Topfoxx sunglasses (they were so kind to send me some other designs, as well) and they company itself, they're just so cool! I love the out-there designs and pretty colours, and I think they toe the line perfectly between hipster and fashionable and they are of course super foxxy (which was sexist of Hendrix to use – let’s reappropriate this phrase, foxxy ladies)!

Disclaimer: I received these three sunglasses in return for Instagram promotion, as always all opinions are my own and I would never recommend something I personally haven't tried and loved. I actually wasn't required to write a blog post about these, but I loved them so much I just had to share!
