Revenge Of The Nerds

It seems I'm really into latest trends recently...but I needed a new pair of glasses cause my yellow ones (yes, I said yellow!)from Valentino are now 7 years and I had to buy a pair of new lenses at least! I use glasses only in front of pc/tv and I wear them in public almost only when I go to the movie cause I'm just a little bit astigmatic and I don't need glasses all the day.
I skipped (for now) the Wayfarer sunglasses trend, but looking at all the great photos on street style sites, I fell for the nerdy chic version with clear lenses...

and of course Enid from Ghost World...


So, as I wait for a little extra money to buy a "real" (= expensive) pair, I bought a super cheap pair of clear dorky glasses on Ebay and I added prescriptions lenses



Next time I'll search for a pair of cateyes...my dream!!!

ooh i've always wanted a pair of cateyes but worry that they would look awful with my round face. Your hair looks darker, did you dye it black?

@ helvetica: thank you :-) I'm really predictable lately!

@ jello on springs: I never tried on cateyes so maybe the wouldn't look good on me, but I heart them!My hair are always been black (when I was a child people often asked my mother if she dyed me!!!), maybe is just the photo that finally show the real color
;-)

I KNEW I was cool when I insisted on wearing my "dressing up" glasses exactly like them in public! Big, Square and slightly geeky is definitely the way to go!

This is a great title for this post, although most of these street style nerds put on these glasses on purpose (duh!).. It's funny to remind how I hated my glasses when I had to wear them all the time, and how happy I was when I only needed to do so by writing, reading.. But u do pull them off!

I love that trend, only, I have not discovered a pair for myself yet. I wish I had copped some in Tokyo, when I had the chance.

I want a nice quirky specs too!

Fruchtzwerg ha detto...

sweet nerdy girls, especially the first and the last girl! Not many girls can pull off that look. You look great in the glasses.

AlicePleasance ha detto...

@ the clothes horse: ...and you surely will look great in them!

@ fashion ivy, elisabeth mccoubrie, fruchtzwerg: thanks, I'm blushing :-)

@ devon maid: I bet a pair of cateyes will be mine soon!!!

@ mysterycreature: *LOL* I wore big square black glasses too when I was 14. They were really similar to these one indeed!

@ romeika: I agree with you! I wore glasses till I was in High School.

@ the kitten: I bet you look great with this kind of glasses!
