I've always been a little bit of a Geek. When I was little, it was books, later, I knew my way around a video game or two, and now I suppose it's tech. Heck, I was a biology major & lab rat in college. Who knew I'd be interested in fashion?
Well, I have a harder time hiding it now with my new glasses. Trés geek-chic, non? I knew my vision was getting bad but didn't realize HOW bad until a recent trip to the angels at Wink Optometry in Del Mar (they're not paying me to say that, they're actually amazing). I figured I'd make a fashion statement of my 20/60 vision and pick up some übercool chunky specs, which they rush shipped to me here in NYC. And it was a match made in heaven: honestly I've never received more compliments on an accessory.
If you're blessed with perfect vision, you can still try on a pair and edge up the geek factor with a little black-on-black leather & silk - it'll never hurt.
