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!

Picture from here

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.

Find them at Chigal on Etsy
