Get the look: Stylin’ in stripes

April 27, 2009

picture-101Remember my friend Amanda with the super cool nerd chic glasses? Well, she is back and looking fabulous as usual. She has this knack to pull together outfits so effortlessly—never looks like she is trying too hard, but yet always manages to wow me with her creations. This ensemble is one of her simpler, laid back looks, but it is just as cute. I am a huge fan of stripes and I love the combination of gray and red together. Add a simple bangle, and either a pair of casual converse or dressier wedges and you are set to go. Plus, don’t you love that each item is $30 and under? Cute and recession-friendly! What’s better than that?!






Merry Merigold

Don’t you love this girl’s bright, cheery merigold-colored scarf? And, check out the scarf in the last image. The photograph was shot for Martha Stewart’s Blueprint magazine, where I used to work before it closed (so sad). The scarf  is mine actually, and was thrown in for fun. I loved it then and it still continues to be my go-to accessory. I think what I love the most about it is it’s rich, bold color that somehow goes with everything. What do you think about the color marigold, or yellow for that matter? And, need I point out the touch of nerd chic in the top two photos? I didn’t think so… SPxx

Even more nerd chic on!

While perusing the fashion blogosphere, I came across this cool post on, which explains how exactly one can pull off NERD CHIC, which I posted about a few weeks ago. I am so excited because as much as I love the look and have been showing photos of hip girls wearing said glasses, I myself was unsure as to which shape I could pull off. To learn the perfect shape for your face, check out the tips and slide show here!
