"...I am an extreme fan of glasses."

As you all probably know, I am an extreme fan of glasses. I am wearing glasses ever since I was a little child and have never tried contact lenses (okay, I tried it once, but without success). I love to buy new glasses now and then and especially love the whole trying-on process.

Just when I was in doubt whether or not I should spend much money on a new frame, I found Polette, an international online optician. Because they are the only intermediate between the factory and customers, they can keep their frames affordable with the same quality. I loved scrolling through their extensive variety of frames, from trendy to classic and minimalist, and use the 'Virtual try on' tool on their website - which is the best thing ever if you are bored. I was a little bit nervous to order the frames without trying them on in real life, but their good exchange policy makes it possible to return the frames if you are not completely satisfied with it. However, I guess that will not happen often.
