I need your opinions!


I've never really mentioned it on the blog, but I'm a secret glasses wearer (shh!)... that means that during my photoshoots, I actually can't see a single thing - barely even the camera! For the last 3 years I've worn a horrible pair of half-rimmed metal glasses, which have left me feeling rather personality-less, at least in terms of glasses. I really dislike them.

Anyway, the other day I tried on this fabulous vintage inspired pair from Pepe Jeans, and I'm pretty keen on them, to say the least. I'm in a bit of a quandary though, because I think they might make me look a bit pretentious!

What do you think of them? And do they suit me?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I love those bad boys! Not pretentious at all they're super cute! xo

Catherine said...

They are very geek chic and you can pull them off. My worry would be thats its alot to spend on a style that may not be fashionable for very long.

vanessa said...

Maria Confer said...

I also go without my glasses during shoots, so I know how annoying that can be!!

I adore these frames on you and think you look so adorable and vintage without being pretentious.

i personally am noy a fan. sorry hun x

Sara said...

I think they look too much. I love your individual style and everything. But like all the vintage kiddies wear glasses like that to be cool and for me glasses like that always remind me more of those kids then the real retro aspect.
And i think there are better glasses out there for you. those aren't really suiting you perfectly, that's what i think.

evie said...

They look sooo perfect on you. get them! (from a fellow secret glasses wearer)

Hannah said...

I really like them. I wouldn't worry too much about anyone else, because you'll never please everyone!!

Shallow Mallow said...

Looks lovely :) Then again, I can't talk I am itching to extend my nerd glasses collection (can you call two pairs of glasses a collection?) These are really cool.

I've worn glasses since I turned two but I als have contacts :) I take my outfits blind most the time too :D Unrepentent laziness: I can't be bothered to adjust for the reflections in my glasses.

Leanne said...

I love them, totally get it!

Jessica said...

definitely lovely! :)

Portrait candy said...

I love the glasses. If you walk around any city in Asia you will see so many young people wearing these glasses. Take a leap of faith and enjoy the change. I really want to invest in a reading pair similar to these to avoid my bad habit of looking under the frame!

Modesty is Pretty said...

Yes, they fit you plus you are such a beautiful girl anything goes. =)

Mel said...

I think they are really cute!!

Mackensie Perry said...

they're adorable! kinda like the ones that im planning on getting when i renew my prescription! :)

Hannah said...

You look so lovely in them, definitely not pretentious! I say definitely get them!

Kate said...

I really really like them - they completely suit you, and your style! x

Rebecca said...

These are really fun! - different without being crazy, and noticeable but not over the top. I think they suit your style really well but, as much as I like them, I do wonder if they are a little big for your face. They seem to swamp you a bit. Are there similar frames that are a little smaller/less deep?

Louder Than Silence said...

I really like them, they are vintage-y without being too east London 'dickhead'. Go for it Sadie!

Phara said...

I think they look super cute :) this website is pretty good for vintage glasses http://www.deadmensspex.com/default/

brittney said...

I think they're cute but might try for something smaller. Just my thoughts.

ASLI - BB said...

I think glasses are very nice :)

Lady Moriarty said...

Ha ha !

Same, I use to wear lenses but more often glasses

These ones are made for you, really. You're very cute with them

See U !

Harriet said...

Love them! I have a massive pair of geek glasses which i absolutely love - go for the plunge!

Hi Sadie,
I think the glasses are a bit OTT and swamp your petite face a little. Just a suggestion but you might want to try a pair of subtle cateye glasses, they're still in keeping with the vintage/retro theme, but could possibly suit your face shape more.
Lovely blog!xxx

Rachel said...

They are ADORABLE. I love that style of glasses. But I do sort of agree with the last commenter's suggestion to try a more subtle pair. Cateye would be so cute.

Rio said...

I absolutely loooove them! So cute! Fact: I've always wanted to wear glasses, so I'm a little jealous that you look so adorable in them! ;)

Yeah there cute on you and there like the shape / style that Audery Hepburn used to wear! Which is all ways a good thing! x

Emily Givens said...

I LOVE your style, but I do agree that something slightly smaller would be more ideal for your face shape. Your adorable so you can pull off anything but I feel like cateye glasses would just be perfect.

sara said...

you are absolutely adorable! i hope you get them!

sea said...

I think you look really cute on it :)

Natasha Gibbs said...

I love them!!! They look so cool!! :D

Julia said...

The glasses are wonderful (I recently lost my lovely pair of vintage looking glasses :( ) but I'm not sure that they're the ideal shape for you - perhaps something less round? They certainly don't look bad, but maybe there's an even more perfect pair out there waiting to be found? But then, it is hard to tell from only one picture :)
