Geek Chic

geek chic

I don’t know if anyone’s is really out there or if you are all still enjoying time with your family and friends for the holidays. Either way, I could not resist posting this photo that I found via vi.sualize.us by katienadine on flickr. I’ve always wanted glasses. I have perfect vision thank goodness but I love love love the way glasses look. Perhaps that’s why I like looking at my husband so much. He’s always in his glasses. I’m sure I like looking at him for other reasons too but I do love his glasses.

I keep seeing pictures around the web of gorgeous girls in geeky glasses. I refuse to pay $80 at American Apparel for faux eyeglasses. I suppose I’ll just have to keep my eyes peeled in the little thrift stores I frequent for the perfect pair of geek lenses so I can finally know what it feels like to wear them about.

*anecdote* When I was about 8 I had a crush on this guy Kevin at camp. One day he came in with glasses. I swooned. All day long I thought of what I could say to him and finally arrived at “your glasses make you look sharp”. Really, it may not have been that sharp of a pick up line but it was all my 8 year old brain could think of. He really did look geek chic.

I hope you’re all enjoying your break and eating lots of goodies. I’ll be guest blogging on Indie Fixx on the 29th and back to regular posting on Jan 5th. XO.

    They look like Ray-Ban Wafarer glasses, although I don’t see branding.
