I tried on geek glasses in the mirror the other day and thought I looked pretty cute so I smiled...







... then changed my mind because I saw my braces. Talk about dorky.

I have to say that I think geek glasses only look great when it's not overdone if you know what I mean. Some people go a little too big when buying them.
Just a nonchalant frame that is a little bigger than normal glasses. Kinda like this one:

^ Agreed with both of your sentiments, they can be done well if you're not trying to be too conspicuous and iornic, and that those are gorgeous, great find!

^ Exactly! Thank you! Actually, that site has a lot of great designs when it comes to fashionable nonchalant geek-y frames. You guys might like it, you should take a look!

Oliver Peoples do some great frames. I like the Emerson and Riley models the best.
The actress Nikki Reed was seen wearing the Emerson frames. She pulls them off quite well
