What is it with Geek Chic?

Is it just me that’s obsessed with Geek Chic?

It’s one of those looks (like 1950s glamour) that I never seem to get bored of …. maybe it’s the allure of wearing spectacles and seeming super intelligent or maybe it’s just that there’s something very sexy about covering up – wearing blouses buttoned up right to the top and wearing our hair a la Zooey Deschannel in New Girl. I am, incidentally, thinking of getting my hair cut like hers next time I’m due for a trim, but then, that’s another story….

Denim!

Has anyone else noticed the amount of spectacular (get it? “spec” tacular?! ; )) eyewear available at the moment? These little babies are from Gucci and take Geek Chic to a whole new level! 

I don’t need to wear glasses (thankfully), and though tempted – it would be ridiculous to buy some with no lenses in. Err …. wouldn’t it?! xx
