Monday Mashup: Geek Chic?

The Fashion Police on E! recently cited The Social Network and Justin Timberlake as the catalysts for the onslaught of people wearing geek glasses.  A couple things: 1) Justin (aka Sean Patrick) didn’t even wear these glasses in the movie, 2) this “trend” started way before this movie. I blame hipsters trying to look ironic.

As a girl who actually needs her glasses to read, I find it incredibly obnoxious that glasses are now “trending.” Now that I found the perfect cool pair of plastic Chanel frames, I cringe when putting them on hoping that others don’t look at me as a trend chaser. What do you guys think? Is it totally lame to wear “fake” glasses?
