GEEK CHIC?

/
41 Comments






Going to the opticians always makes me laugh and my most recent visit was no exception. I had to have drops put in my eyes to make my vision blurry so my true prescription could be taken. Within five minutes, trying on glasses became pointless as I couldn't see my reflection and a text to my friend went something like 'ysss hree noiuw,.; set you lstwr'. This only got worse. My optician was rather good looking and so when the rooms goes dark and he has that torch shining in your eyes whilst his face gets pretty close to yours, hot flushes are a regular occurrance. With the drops, it didn't look like he was testing my eyes but rather going in for a kiss. Oh I Wish. This would be highly unrealistic considering one's most attractive look is not sitting in a chair wearing plastic glasses that look a cross between the old fashioned 3D glasses and Albert Einstein's.

These are the glasses I ended up choosing. I know the whole 'geek chic' look is really on-trend at the moment but after trying on countless pairs of Ray Ban's I realised it really wasn't for me. I ended up with this Dior pair which are slightly geeky but slightly more subtle. I also like the tortoise-shell look as it's less harsh against my hair colour. Now i'm just hoping I look like one of those people who looks 'stylish' in glasses, and not plain ridiculous.

  3. Very cute glasses :) i can totally relate to the hot optician thing, it's such a shame that no-one looks good in those horrendous things they make you wear while they test your eyes.

    'Is the green one clearer, or the red?' isn't exactly sexy talk either.. sigh

  7. Love your glasses! I was actually looking at a pair quite similar to your Dior ones but not quite sure if I could pull off the whole 'geek' look!

  21. This post really made me chuckle. There's nothing like sitting in that chair in the opticians with them big fat metal frames on your face! Ravishing! You've also just reminded me that i'm due an appointment haha.

    I love those glasses on you i actually thought they were Ray Bans anyway.
