invisible movement



Hi guys!

No my eyesight has not gotten worse overnight and no I also have not been concealing contact lenses from you. The truth is: these plastic glasses were only 3€ so I bought them just for fun.
Actually I already own a pair of fake glasses, a really pretty pair with lizard print that I put in my shopping bag just randomly when I purchased some accessories at Modcloth last year. But these Modcloth glasses are real geek glasses, they look cute but are pretty big so I never wear them out.
However the cheap plastic ones that you can see in the photos are a bit more discreet concerning the size. well at least as discreet as geek glasses can be, right? Anyway, I wore them out when i had to run errands the other day and got neither strange looks, nor giggles nor whatever, it felt just fine. Unfortunately when I'm in a rush I start to sweat on my forehead so the glasses kept steaming up and eventually I took them off because i had to clean them with the sleeve of my jacket every 5 minutes. But I think I'll still wear them out from time to time though...

What do you think about wearing fake glasses? Is it stupid for people who don't need real ones? Or is it just an accessory like a belt, headband or necklace?
I must admit I didn't like this trend when it first occured about two years ago but now I'm like why not?! It's a good way to change your looks and style and to try out something new without being forced to spend a fortune on real optical products. My last eyesight test actually showed that I could wear glasses with -0,5 diopter, but that's nothing so why not try to keep my vision good as long as possible and wear fake glasses instead?



By the way I've been having an obsession with this plumish red Maybelline Superstay 24 Color in "Absolute Plum" lately (and I red that when you wear glasses the make-up should emphasize the lips?!).

Have a lovely day!

  1. I totally have a pair of fake glasses and felt weird about it at first, but it's not a big deal at all, they're so cute! I love this look on you, the scarf and belt and faux glasses, such a stylish more casual ensemble!!

  3. I wear glasses because I have the worst sight. I can't read anything in front of me without them and I guess I can call them my best friends. Sadly, since I wear the called "nerd" glasses I get asked a lot it they're not fake. Some people also ask me if they can take a picture with them and the truth is that can be a bit of annoying, one minute without them gives me headaches - yes, I'm that blind xD. Still, I have nothing against the "wearing glasses whitout needing them" trend. It's just a bit bad that my glasses get confused by those a lot of times xD
