My Glasses Have Eaten My Face

This photo on the left is from Face Hunter, the French fashion blog. Finding horrifying images on this site is very easy, but I'd like to draw attention to one particular awful look: Bill Gates style, oversized glasses.

Why is this look awful? Well, first things first: it's ugly. Not just a little ugly, but unflattering, stupid, and impractical.
But what's worse, it's trendy. And it's one thing to be the only person in the world wearing something that you think is great because it's so over that it's, like, so hot and 80's and stuff, and, like, looking like a computer programmer is like, such a crazy, RANDOM look and all, but it's another, worse thing to be the 8,645th person to do it. It's stupid to wear ugly things because they're popular. That doesn't un-uglify them. It doesn't make you cool. It makes you look like a tool. And even if you think you're the first person to take that plunge into 80's novelty-wear, I'll tell you right now: you're not.

PS: There are plenty of other things wrong with this look- but mostly that sweatshirt thing, I guess.
