    I just don't get it - of all the looks to have - why is that now the "sexy" glasses?
    Fads and determinations based on such arbitrary quantification factors never make sense.

    Eh. I have black, thick frames... the same frames in red. A blue pair that are bottom rimless, some totally rimless and a couple of wire rimmed. I have to say I love the plastic/acetate black and red frames best. Can't say that I really care whether or not someone likes them or not.. I like that I feel comfortable in them. *shrug* For years I 'hid' behind my glasses.. now I've found a new confidence. I don't know if it's because of my age or what. I have wondered what it'd be like to wake up and be able to actually SEE without reaching for my specs... but I think I'd almost miss my glasses. As weird as that sounds. But I am out of touch with what is 'in' and what's not. And my teenagers tell me that on a daily basis.. hence my question.

    I guess I get miffed when things that I got my ass kicked for on the playground suddenly become 'fashionable'

    I think they are very sexy on women! And I wear them in lieu of contacts or lasik.

    Glasses are very attractive on a woman. I am drawn to the Forehead -so I pay attention to the eyes an the facial area when I am looking at a person. Oh , and in those quiet moments that are filled with the intense rush to be felt and wanted. Her glasses are one more thing you can remove to reveal her natural splendor.

    I caught the edge of when being a computer nerd was bad and when it was cool. People looked at me funny when I started getting into audio. My headphones caught attention and so did the iPod (as well as the music collection). Things change, is all.

    Fashion is somewhat fickle though.
