Geek Chic

As dievca writes this blog she has learned quite a bit about herself.  she obsesses over things…for years….

An example, May 16, 1986 – Top Gun hit the Theatres:

mcgillis_glasses Top Gun Charlie

Kelly McGillis as “Charlie” in Top Gun….the clear-framed glasses.

An Obsession. For 30 Years.

And now…..

Everyone knew about this, except dievca…

dievca decided on none of the frames sent, instead she went to the Warby Parker store in SoHo and tried frames on.  Here is what she ended up with:

The verdict?
dievca will never be Kelly McGillis.
Master likes them.

People under 30 love them.
People over 30 think they are just o.k. – unless they are creative types. Then they love them.
dievca?
she feels like “Charlie” in Top Gun – what’s not to like?

    Glasses are simply fab. End of discussion x

  2. I do like your choice!
    I too once desired a pair of clear frames like Charlie, and fit them, too.
    Then a colleague suggested they looked like safety goggles, and I became less enamored of them.
