I needed to get some new glasses last week as unfortunately my eyesight has gotten worse, boo! The upside is that I got to choose some fabulous new geek glasses!
I was thinking after I'd left the opticians how much attitudes towards glasses have changed in the past year or two.
When I first needed glasses, aged 11 or 12, they were seriously uncool. I needed them to see the blackboard so I couldn't not wear them to school. At that age when you're starting to become self aware, it wasn't the best time for me to get glasses, a weight problem and braces. Oh dear!
However, if I was to be a 12 year old nowadays, I would be so cool in my geek glasses! Even models like Cara whatsaname and The Little Mix girls all wear them! I think if I was a pre-teen nowadays I could have a bit more confidence in the way I looked in my glasses, such a shame! But brilliant for kids now. Just because you wear glasses, it doesn't mean you're a geek, it means you can't see what is written in front of you! And now it means you have great style! Woo!!
