These Kiel Mead 'Freck Specs' are doubly geeky--and perhaps that's why I love them. The tortoiseshell frames scream high school librarian, but their dotted lenses signal a freckled redhead. In elementary school, a kid might have been teased for having red hair, freckles and glasses. As an adult, however, such childhood nostalgia becomes charming rather than embarrassing.
