I hate wearing glasses. They slide down to the tip of my nose, fog up in cold weather and are continually knocked off my night table as I grasp around for them. A few years ago I scheduled an appointment for laser eye surgery; alas, turns out I’m spineless as well as blind. I just couldn’t live with the <1% possibility of serious side effects – some will agree, some will disagree – hey, it’s your sight. As for me… I’m doomed to live a be-speckled life. (Thank goodness for contact lenses.)
But recently, there has been a light at the end of the tunnel… celebrities are turning on their Geek Chic and turning up everywhere in oversized, heavy framed glasses. I LOVE IT! Such a fresh pairing – flirty and functional, it conjures images of the sexy school librarian or an über-nerd whose look screams “make me over!’ (Having a She’s All That flashback.)
I decided it was time for new glasses and therefore a wonderful opportunity to go geek. I drew inspiration from some of my favourite celebs…
… and settled on a modern black Burberry frame with clean lines and just the right balance between beauty and blogger. Here I am – Geek Chic!
Do you wear glasses? What shape/style of frames do you love?
