I have been looking for a place like this for years. I can't pick out my own glasses (because without the prescription in front of me, I can't see the glasses) so want to leave these decisions up to professionals. Once sat next to a man wearing beautiful, subtle, perfectly proportioned glasses. I loved them, complimented him on them, and asked where he got them. He described Artsee to me, and recommended it. He added that he had 70 or 80 pairs of glasses, so I was pretty sure he had done some research. I went the following week. The store has a huge and unusual selection. The owners have a strong eye for shape and color, and will make recommendations (if you want). They help you chose glasses suited to your face/skin/personality. First guy helped me pick out 20 or 30 pairs that we both liked. Second guy narrowed down the choices to two, giving me reasons for and against each pair. Third guy said ""those!"" and a few days later, voila. Eight months later, they are still great glasses. I get compliments regularly, with much the same reaction as I gave the stranger next to me. They're fairly expensive, but well worth the money. I'm going back this week for another pair, probably sunglasses.
Pros: high quality frames, staff has fabulous eye for beauty, fun place to get a new look
Cons: high cost - maybe not the place to go if you're prone to losing glasses
