those look really similar to the Dior Glossy sunglasses, which I own in the red frame.

I agree it's all in the way you wear them. I don't like them worn in a really trendy manner. For me, the impact is all in wearing them with something very modern and crisp to provide a sort of clashing element. I really want the Oliver People's ones

I remember i saw a girl 3 years ago wearing geek glasses and I said "oh no it's so excessive I will never like this trend". But the more I see people wearing these glasses, the more I like them... I'm a victim...

ebay, high street stores...
if u read through the thread u will certainly get an idea where to get them

i have a question though...if u buy online, how do u get an idea about their size/how wide they are...i have a relatively slender face and 80% of all the 'normal' sized glasses/shades are always too big for me...and those measurements dont make sense to me can someone help me, pls?

So, today I saw a pair of such glasses at H&M. But I've got one problem. Someone was telling me that these glasses are mainly new rave-ish and they're completely stupid so I'm a little bit confused now.
Do the new rave kids use the geek glasses trend for themselves in order to have a 'own' distinct feature?
Well, I'm pretty sure they do and it's not a typical new rave thing because of the many pictures of other people in this thread but I hate to get associated with the whole new rave trend when I'm wearing them.
I don't dress like a new rave kid so that might help, doesn't it?

These are the H&M glasses:

yeah I mean....neon would be considered a nu-rave thing but you could totally wear neon in an unexpected way. Besides who cares what other people say? I almost never listen to what others say about style (excluding tfsers who have an idea what they are doing) since most people's ideas are so commercial anyway.

fairy - do you own other pairs of glasses which fit? I would just measure, with a measuring tape, the frames across the bridge from arm to arm and get an idea of the width and ask any potential ebayer to measure from arm to arm and see if it's too big or not. That's all I could think of.....
