Oversized glasses

Luella happenned to be one of the most applauded collections for Spring 08. The flower prints, the lace up boots... just perfect. But, it wasn't only that, the thing that caught our eyes the most were those thick frammed oversized glasses that until then we thought only grandmothers could pull off. Luella definitely made an statement.


I started wearing glasses two years ago, before I got into University. The amount of reading and the time I spend on the computer (working, making essays, blogging) made my ophthalmologist realize my need of reading glasses (I only wear them when watching tv , reading or when I'm in front of the computer). We're in Summer at the moment, and the climate is hot as hell, so I can't stand wearing too many accesories, having said that, you'll understand better why I just can't keep my hand off my lovely oversized glasses, even when I'm just walking around some mall and I have no need to wear them. I bought the frames last year just after watching the Luella show for less than $4 (US dollars), and got my eyes tested again two weeks ago.

hahaha my braces complete the geek look =P

Here you have some inspiration I found around street style sites. Credits to: face hunter, the cobra snake, copenhagen street style



Valentine's day? Well, I don't really mind about it. I had lunch with my dad and sister and I'll probably hang out at my friend's house later, just the usual stuff, you know goofing around, talking and eating maybe (although, i really hope we don't, because I ate a lot on lunch). Valentine's just like another day. I love my friends and I will tell them so everytime I can, not only because it's 14th February, that would be just wrong.

Btw, i got a new camera! a canon powershot Sd-1000, because we lost (ehem, ehem, I) lost the sony cybershot we used to own.

Thanks for the nice comments!

I looove this glasses. And I love how they look on you. I've always wanted a pair from American Apparel, but they're never less than $50 and, without a job at the moment, that ain't a possibility :(

How could you get them for $4!!?? I envy you!! Hahaha.

I want those geek glasses with the frame squared and slightly slanted. I was a little scared to embrace them but you're made me realize their coolness!

iñaki dijo...

They look awesome on you!
And i also think what you said is a great idea. Summer really evaporates the idea of wearing much accessories, and those glasses are such a statement that when you're dying of heat you'll look amazing!

The Clothes Horse dijo...

Now that I need glasses, I want a glasses wardrobe and to have tons of pairs to switch up--one like these would be perfect!
I agree, mysterious characters are so much more interesting. And I also agree stating your opinion is important--I can do it with good friends or in a classroom (almost anonymous setting), it's large crowds and new people that I have trouble around. My mother (gosh, I am such a child!) always points out that saying your opinion (and justifying it) can be a duty, other's might not see things that way and sharing helps expands everyone's minds.

saray dijo...

ooo love the geek chick!
