Geek Glasses.




Top: New Look
Blazer: Zara
Shorts: New Look
Black Tights: Primark
Earrings: House of Fraser

Mac Studio Sculpt foundation in NW20
Topshop Brightening concealer
Benefit Erase Paste No1
Clavin Klein powder "Barely Beige"
Bare Escentuals bronzer "Faux Tan"
Mac Mineralised Skinfinish "Refined"
Nars e/s in "Isolde" duo palette
Mac e/s "Woodwinked"
Eyeko Graffitti liner "brown"
Topshop eye khol "Saddle"
No7 Exsquisite Curl mascara "Black/Brown"
Mac lipstick "Shy Girl" (I dont know why this looks frosty..it isnt)

I love "Geek Glasses", but I fear that they scream pretentious-avant-garde-ness. I love the concept, the way they look, and the way they can complete an outfit. So why is it that I just cannot bring myself to wear them outside? Maybe it's because I know they aren't real lenses, and do not give me any ability to see clearer, therefore I am faking slightly? Maybe it's because some people really do only think these types of glasses belong on "geeks"? What do you think of the "Geek Glasses" trend? I personally love it, I just don't know if i can pull it off as easily as others though...or if they suit me...

  8. I think you can definitely pull them off! I unfortunately do have horrible eye sight and have been trying to find some tortoise shell ray ban prescription glasses. I say be confident in the look (because it is a great one) and wear them out in public. The are an accessory and finish your look in the post very nicely! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. i love them, but tbh i wouldn't wear them out either.. they're too "hipster" and people who wear them outside all the time and don't need them are posers i reckon
    cute look though :)

  13. You look fab!

    I love geek glasses, but I can't wear fake ones, so trying to convince myself that my next prescription pair should be some big old raybans - and the price is totally worth it. Ha! x

    ReplyDelete
  14. I also love Geek glasses, love them! But I cannot wear them, like you, it's weird hahaha
    The pictures are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gahh, you look stunning. <3

    I have geek glasses - prescription ones though.

    When I was younger I always wanted them, but my eyesight was perfect so I couldn't. Now I actually need them and I hate wearing them! Haha, always want what I cant have! :P x

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love the outfit! :) Your hair looks lovely!

    The geek glasses look really good on you! You can definitely pull it off...if you want to wear them out then go for it!

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. they look really cute on you! i think it depends on the person with how they look? like i think you look really great in them but i know a few people who look like pretentious tools wearing them! haha. i have some geek glasses too, unfortunately need them to see though! x

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah, they suit you. I know the feeling. But I think we extrapolate and think ahead too much because tbh I'm sure that most people don't care. As long as you like it! Love the outfit though.

  19. i love geek glasses when i travel or when i feel like going out without makeup, think it's a great way to distract others from looking straight at those nasty dark circles!

    should try wearing them outside cos u look gorgeous in them :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the trend but think exactly the same, if you dont need them dont wear them! Would we wear braces to be fashionable? Where would it end! Love your outift though so cure, you look great in Geek Chic xx :o)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm exactly the same as you! I love the look of them so much, but I fear that putting them on when they're fake just puts me in that pretentious fashion category that everyone else seems to lump geek-glasses-wearers into. They really suit you though so you should definitely go for it - just be brave! z

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think you pull it off Zo, you look Geeky cool hun. I blooming love your barnet! x

    ReplyDelete
  23. You are gorgeous lady, so jealous of your hair!
    Agree about the geek glasses, they can look amazing, and I think they do on you, I just don't want to look pretentious so I never wear them outside!
    silly really cos it shouldn't matter!

  24. They look amazing on you! And your hair looks lovely in these pictures!

  25. i love the geek glasses on you, and usually i dont think they look good on most people. I think you should give it a shot in the real world, you might not regret it <3

  27. it amazes me how the geek glasses hit the west so slow... it's been popular in korea for ages.... i love the look you pulled off.. i also agree that the glasses completed the look. but i also feel the same with you about loving the look, but not having the confidence to wear it outside.. i know exactly the feeling of that awkwardness,, but i think again it's just us being conscious in the inside,when really no one minds it...or even notices it. lol.. everyone will know your wearing it for fashion.. no1 wears those big lensed for their eyesight anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You really suit those glasses!!
    love it xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. YAY! I bought a pair of those bad boys in Japan. I love fake glasses and people tend to get really thrown off. The pair I have is a tad overstated and thick rimmed though, so I feel it is almost obvious that they are fake!

    What a great way you incorporated it into your look!

  30. You look lovely in these pictures. I'm not a fan of the glasses in general, but you do pull them off :) X

    ReplyDelete
  39. You look lovely as evz Zoe, I find geek glasses a bit hit and miss on the whole, you pull them off perfectly! Some of the younger girls back at home look ridiculous in them though haha. Gorgey shorts as well (: xo

  40. They look absolutely pretty on you! <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. i really love this post & i feel the same way about the geeky glasses but i love love them for photos and i see them as an object of free expression, it be nice if i could wear them out without feeling a bit odd. bytheway, you loookkk awesome in them, i think you could pull them off. =)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have to be honest, I hate the geek glasses look with a passion. But you seem to pull them off regardless x

    ReplyDelete
  43. They look really cute on you but I'd have reservations about wearing them out but surely fashion is about taking risks? If you're feeling brave then I say go for it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I absolutely love wearing Geeky Glasses :) & I think they suit you very well ^^

  47. The glasses look really cute on you! I love your hair too! I can never get my bangs to cooperate. How do you get your bangs to look so nice?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh you're such a stunner! I can't do the geeky glasses look, but on a random note, I want those shorts! I keep seeing them in our store and umm and ahh about them. Totally getting them now :).

  55. I personally love the geek glasses trend! It's so sad that it's been done to death though, particularly with people walking around in glasses without lenses to look cool and 'indie'.

    I also love your top knot, some people can make it look like they've just thrown it together and it's so incredibly, effortlessly chic, but mine never turn out the way I want it to!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love geek glasses, nothing cuter than them and they make us look so small and dainty!

    Zoe, Id be very much so honoured and happy if you'd read my latest blog. Its about fur in fashion and I want to get the word out there more. Following is not necessary but id make my day if you did. Love your blog and your vids always get me so excited!

  59. I know what you mean! I love the look of geek glasses, but I too am weary of wearing them outside the house! You look great in them though, you should definitely rock them out!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the Geek Glasses trend I think you pull it off amazingly! I don't think I could pull it off as well but if I could I definitely would, I wouldn't worry about them being fake because unless someone actually takes your glasses off and tries to look through them how are they to know they aren't real lenses and your just wearing them to see clearly? Opticians seem to be recognising this trend now and have a wider range of bigger frames so I think you can get away with it more now than before.

    :)

  63. Super cute. I was actually going to buy some glasses from Warby Parker....they have both perscription and non both under $100! And they send you five to try on at home.

  64. absolute babe! i love geek glasses, i have a pair that literally take up my entire face but they're prescription. and everyone always asks whether they're just clear! shorts are gorge xx

    ReplyDelete
  65. Of course you can pull them off! I wish my hair would grow to the length of yours!

    ReplyDelete
  66. You can pull it off! No one will think they are fake, haha! Btw so many people run around with fake things these days, so don't mind!
    Have a great week,

  69. I LOVE geek glasses, but I, too, think fake glasses are shameful. (Though I guess if nobody knows they're fake, then no harm, no foul.) I actually have terrible eyesight, but it's SO terrible that I can't really wear glasses because they would make my eyes look tiny. As if my Asian eyes need more reason to be tiny.

    ReplyDelete
  70. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! you look absolutely stunning in those! "can you pull it off" haha that makes me laugh!

    go for it, woman!

    you're seriously a beautiful little thing and i love following you and seeing what pretty things you buy {the hauls are my favorite}

    ReplyDelete
  72. I actually wear them so I'm liking it and there should be no doubt that you can wear this trend. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Lol.. either way, you would look, you look like a knock out! So who cares if they aren't real?

  79. i am the same way, i want to badly wear them with some of my outfits, but i just know and have already heard of ppl saying how pretencios it is, so now i feel weird about wearing them, but i wear them when i take pictures lols.
    btw you look AMAZING !!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I just feel like "geek glasses" have become so mainstream. I like to look different from others. Also, as a glasses/contact lens wearer, I definitely get annoyed when people wear fake glasses. You don't know how lucky you are to have perfect vision. You're a gorgeous gal, which I'm sure you know ;) I just wish you'd give a full on smile instead of these grins.

  81. Pulling it off with class! Looks hott on you like those librarians in movies that always get the makeover but before she does, u already know she's a hottie LOL

  104. i personally find that they suit you great! i also own a pair. i was, at first, quite reluctant as to wearing them in public (at school, streets...) but knowing that my parents would nag me about it, i did and i sure don't regret it! i unfortunately broke them recently... but i'm definitely getting a new pair as soon as i possibly can!

  110. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are most damaging between 10am and 2pm. Even under overcast skies, we should protect our eyes, as the rays of the sun do pass through clouds. And when under a shade, we should still wear sunglasses, because UV rays are reflected by sand and water.

  113. I am a bit iffy about the 'geek glasses' trend. Never tried it myself but I think I know a few people who took their prescription lenses and got them fitted into 'geek' frames. I suits you quite well regardless. The big frames on your small face actually looks quite cute.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I really do think they look absolutly great on you! I love the trend but I'm a bit afraid to wear it outside because some people think it's quite weird so for now, i just wear them if I'm going a bit crazy.
