I wear prescription glasses everyday. I cant stand wearing contacts and since my eyesight is not that bad yet, I can still get away without them when I’m not working, or reading. I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 16 and I’ve gotten better at picking frames. Usually the funky ones, are too heavy and hurt your ears after a few hours (this is often the case with designer glasses), the lighter pairs are usually the ugly soccer-mommy looking frames (I know right -_-).
Thankfully I found Polette.com, an online optical store that has TONS of different frames from sunglasses to eyeglasses that are very trendy and affordable. You can customize each pair however you want in terms of lenses – from prescriptions, to lens color to lens type. One thing I really liked about the site is how easy it is to shop. I stay away from buying glasses online because I have a pretty wide face so I have to try them on. Polette however provides illustrations with the exact measurements of each product, as well as photos of them when worn which makes it so much easier to pick and choose.
Thanks Pauline for sending me these lovely retro style frames! I am so glad they turned out larger than I expected!!
