Are geek glasses more shape than frame? :huh? I would like a nice pair, but a thick frame would swallow my whole face up what with my bangs too.

They can be about both, I guess- go for it anyway (so says a thick-fringed fat-frame wearer)- it can work if you don't let the rest of your hair in your face a lot, I think. I've loved the look ever since I saw Marilyn Monroe in How to Marry A Millionaire, and the cat-eyed frames she has in that movie are my (glasses-wise) Holy Grail, and that was just before I got to ninth grade and found that I had to get glasses.

And in my case, if I don't get thick-framed glasses, I break them (drop them, sit on them, but stacks of books on them) so it's really not about fashion at all- it's a necessity!

Ugh. I hate this look. I had to wear those glasses (BCs) in boot camp. Lemme just tell you we called them Birth Control glasses for a reason.

I've liked the trend of the geek look for a while now, even though I like it better for guys.

here's me with my everyday glasses

Well, i need to wear glasses, i like to wear glasses as lenses just plain suck and are really annoying, time consuming too. So that's why i wear thick nerd glasses, don't care if it's hot or not.

Geek glasses won't work for my face. I tried a few pairs on while visiting the optometrist today. It looks alright with certain face shapes but not mine.

I'm sick of my current glasses... I love all of your geek glasses! I could envision wearing some moderately sized ones shaped like Mademoiselle-M's. They're gorgeous!
