I am currently feeling a little under the weather, therefore I’m not up for a long post or too much creativity. However, I did make the collage below to show you my new craving. I am dying to find the perfect pair of black retro eye glasses. I think the sexy librarian, slightly geeky-chic look is so adorable. For some reason it slightly reminds me of Parisian cafes and literature. Although they are a little on the geeky side, if worn right I think they can be extremely trendy. Although contact lenses are very comfortable for every day wear and active lifestyles. I still enjoy bringing out my eye-glasses every now and then and giving my look a slightly different take. Here are some of the retro, black glasses that are currently inspiring me for whenever I purchase my next pair. I even love that one of my favorite actresses, Anne Hathaway, sports them so perfectly.

My current pair of glasses are squared, red, Versace ones that I love. But I’m still trying to find the perfect retro pair. Here’s what my current pair looks like. They aren’t as large as the ones I am currently lusting over, but they’ll have to do until I find my next perfect pair.
I am a bit of an eye-glass hoarder, as I still keep in rotation some of my previous pairs that are still in style as well.
What are your thoughts – do you like to wear eye glasses or do you think they’re dorky and get in the way? What’s your favorite style? What do you think of the chunky/retro look?
