Of course it is news to no one that glasses have been taking center stage on both catwalks and street style blogs for some time now. The "Geek Chic" trend has been well over played in some opinions and frankly a little silly to others. Here in Portland the hipster crowd has been sporting the frames relentlessly (sometimes even without the lenses...really people?). Thanks to the ironically hilarious IFC series 'Portlandia' "hot girls" everywhere have been snatching up some non-prescription frames.
I would prefer mine WITH lenses, a touch of geek, a side of chic and a heaping helping of timeless perfection, hipster irony not necessary.

After browsing numerous styles I came across Tortoise & Blonde, a recently founded eye wear company out of New York. their styles are undeniably timeless and sophisticated yet right on trend with bold shapes and colors.
Check out the site which will start selling their styles online beginning, April 4th 2011!
