It’s true, geek chic style is having a major MOMENT right now. I guess we have to thank Gucci’s creative mind Alessandro Michele for bringing it back. And while I’m not entirely a Gucci girl, I do love her personality. Playful, youthful and charismatic…that’s definitely my vibe. And one of the first pieces that caught my attention on her was the geek glasses. Well, if you’ve been around for at least a week, you know how I feel about eyewear and can probably understand me. So, I had these aviator clear lens glasses on my wishlist for months. I checked all the online and vintage stores, but there were nowhere to be found. I even once stumbled across a really old and creepy antique store in Amsterdam, which was by that time closed. But I’m glad it was. I don’t know if I would be brave enough to enter it. It had all those creepy dolls and old glasses frames aligned by the window. The imagery that looked like something out of a horror movie. I promise, next time I’m around I will definitely share it with you on my Snapchat: beatricegutu. Anyway, somehow I managed to find this last pair at Zara. Who would’ve think?! I always say, if something is meant to be yours it will be. Am I getting melodramatic? Maybe. But the important thing is that I have this new weapon in my arsenal and I’m planning to use it every time I want to channel my inner geek.
