tuesday’s girl: girls who wear glasses.

i’ve always been a big fan of writer dorothy parker, and one of her famous quips: “Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses.” but i kinda don’t believe that. there are loads of women who look fantastic in glasses. this tuesday’s girl it’s all about the girls in glasses.

  1. So beautiful. I always love seeing glasses on girls – they’re so pretty…I guess I need to pick up a pair myself!!

      I am a Guy and I love GWG (girls wearing glasses). Unfortunately, there’s not many of them around these days. Glasses are very attractive on a girl to me and a lot of my friends. I would Rather hit on and date girls with glasses than girls who don’t. Maybe I am a little weird, but I love girls in glasses.

  4. Finally had to get computer glasses since I’m always on the ‘puter. Wasn’t complaining – I love how timeless they look and so many fun frames to pick from these days!

    Ahhhh the girl in the stripes with the little pup has the best hair, ever! Love!

    Love all this pics! It’s so awesome how shades can completely alter one’s look or personality.

  7. Dana Grace says:

    Hooray! I’m always excited to see girls with glasses…as I am one every.single.day. Wish it was more budget friendly to have a rotation of frames. Sigh.

  9. why have two eyes when you can have four? that’s what i always say anyway…

    It’s kinda true that boys don’t make passes at girls that wear glasses, but I think we look pretty freakin’ great!

  11. victoria says:

    I love this post! I have glasses (more for nighttime/foreign movies) that I tend to forget about. Thanks for the reminder!

  12. Thanks Victoria! I just found out that I need glasses so this post is the perfect inspiration! I love them all!

    I don’t think I will ever stop wearing glasses! I love them just too much and I’m actually trying to decide which ones to get next – http://www.wearejules.com/blog/2011/08/crush-list-new-eyeglasses.html

    I wear large retro horn rimmed glasses and I love them because my computer screen is huge and I don’t have to move my head around too much – does that make sense?
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. Vantiani says:

    As a lady with vintage glasses since years ago, I LOVE this post.
    Thank you so so much, Victoria.

    And I agree with what Sidney said,
    guys should make passes at girls who wear glasses…

    glasses are the best. I have about 5 pairs and I never can decide which to wear!
