We Heart It: Chic, Slightly Nerdy Eyewear

Confession: Your D.C. editor is a little obsessed with cool glasses. Ever since I got my first pair in elementary school (they were translucent pink-to-blue ombre frames — who's badass?), I've been on the hunt to find lenses that really feel like me.
Skip ahead to today, when, in the midst of some rabid internet-scouring on your behalf (ahem, mostly on your behalf), I stumbled upon an adorable model sporting some serious nerd-chic frames on the Gap homepage. That's right, the Gap, people — that means the trend of glasses-so-dorky-they're-hot is here to stay. And since it's 2012, there are a bunch of online sites peddling super-cool frames for next-to-nothing — click through for some favorite picks from your lens-loving editor's three favorite online sources.
