Through The Looking Glass

Thursday, December 9, 2010

I have to admit that I'm somehow partial on the subject of glasses as Balazs and I wear them. Having said that, I find oversized, round specs very stylish! Don't those girls look fabulous sporting their geek-chic style frames? xoxo

Ps: I'm smitten with this vintage pair!

This is one of my favorite trends! I have 2 pairs and I love them. I was expecting to get more funny looks than compliments but to my surprise a lot of people like them, including my boyfriend

Xoxo
Always choose paris

Well I don't wear glasses... but I love the first outfit! I think I might try to recreate it tomorrow. :-)

mydesignchic said...

Perfect style...glasses included!!

Susan Erickson said...

I wear progressive lens and the small frames just don't work well. these might be just the thing! I like that nerdy look....

Stephanie said...

I wear reading glasses, so I'm a fan... but mostly I'm just focusing on the girl's hair in the second picture! So gorgeous!

Betta sp said...

hmm...i prefer a glass that's not too big. that glass is only suitable for some people,isn't it?

Jude said...

I love switching from my contacts to glasses because I love the pair I have, and also it helps me feel smarter and less like a kid. :) I'm also loving that first girl's hair and outfit! That is the perfect everyday skirt!

little t said...

I wear glasses too... but think everyone wears them better than me. I love how they can transform an outfit though!

I love the last pic from Sart.

Casey said...

I have an oval face, so I have to be careful with the frame of glasses that I wear. However, the ladies you have posted all look fabulous in theirs! :)

Hope you are having a fantastic day!

Lillian Chang said...

I do love the glasses! They really add so much style to a simple look! :) I just bought the most adorable pair of green frames from Anthropologie - I can wait to get them fit and start wearing em out! :)

Anna Jane said...

they're all so chic....wish i could be them! ;)

jeanette from everton terrace said...

My husband and I also wear glasses and strangely, I prefer my husband in his. Think he's even cuter with them on. Maybe it's a Clark Kent/Superman thing :)

A La Mode et Plus! said...

You know, I am supossed to wear glasses but don't. Maybe if I had that vintage pair I would :)

im zoe said...

Diana Mieczan said...

Lillian..I love green frames:)

Styles 'n Cream said...

Yes, you are right. All of these ladies look very chic.

Mo Pie, Please said...

I love the glasses and I wish I could wear mine out and about. I have a -9.0 prescription so therefore I look like a huge dork in mine and when it's sunny it's so hard to see things since there are prisms being formed on EVERYTHING! Sigh, someday maybe I'll find the perfect pair of glasses with no prescriptions in them and can pull the look off!

La Feem said...

They certainly do! xo

photohogger said...

Yes! Thank you! Finally a post on glasses! Do you ever notice that fashion mags hardly (if ever!) write up on glasses (besides sunglasses)???
Mine are biggish black rectangular Chanel frames which I love!

Amber Blue Bird said...

I so want a geek chic pair of specs!

Diana said...

When I need glasses, these are definitely the sort I'd go for. I hope I can pull them off.

tanvii.com said...

I do not wear them but I do like them on people. The second lady is looking gorgeous with her hair.

Danielle said...

Glasses! I've been wearing my semi-geeky Mad Men-like glasses the past few weeks (I ran out of contacts) -- I feel like it brings out my Clark Kent side.
