Chic nerdy?

I have long had an obsession with plastic framed glasses, especially after this guy's face was all over the news

Ok...not so much, but this guy did it right!

I can't pull this look off though, I guess I'm not nerdy enough, or at all. Every time I get a new pair of prescribed glasses, I try and give up. However, I never tried the big round style on and for some reasons, I have a feeling they might work better than the traditional rectangle frame.

I found an Etsy seller that has vintage frames at very, very reasonable prices that even though I don't get to try them on, I'm thinking about getting a pair anyway.

At $15 per pair...I can't loose much.
