Geek Chic #Fashion And A Marc Jacobs Hobo Giveaway #RivetandSway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rivet & Sway.

I always loved the sexy librarian look…maybe because I love to read and want to imagine myself as a hottie despite being bookish. When I see someone sporting the geek chic look and pulling it off, it inspires me to want to try it myself- but I hadn’t quite nailed it yet.

Shopping for eyeglasses has always been hard for me. There are sites that allow you to upload your photo and virtually try eyeglasses on, and that is definitely a step in the right direction, but it’s never the same as actually trying a pair on yourself. Stores don’t necessarily carry what you are looking for and the salesperson may not always understand your taste or style either (and who wants to tell a salesperson “I want to look like a sexy librarian”?)

Rivet & Sway is an online site that offers eye glasses for women with a boutique shopping experience. They not only have free personal stylists who will recommend three styles based on your face shape and preferences, but they will send you the three pairs to try for free (any three pairs you want to try). Based on my face shape (oval/square) and coloring, the three styles that were suggested to me were Faster Pussycat, Punchline, and Je Nais Se Quoi…and because I wanted the Geek Chic look, I ordered my try-ons all in black!

Punchline is gorgeous but doesn’t look right with my brows (reminded me of Groucho Marx brows) and I guess my face is unsymmetrical (ack!), because Je Nais Se Quois didn’t sit right on me or flatter my face (though they were kind of cool too). Third times the charm? Kind of liking this cat-eye shape:

So how do I look? My son said I look beautiful 🙂 I fell in love with Faster Pussycat, it’s so me! (and can’t wait to surprise my husband with them once my official, brand new, complete with ultra-thin prescription lenses pair of eyeglasses arrives- he loves this look!)
