n*e*r*d


ralph lauren shirt, ralph lauren necklace, kenneth cole eyeglasses,
levi's jeans, sam edelman gigi sandal (available here), chanel bag


I don't think I have publicized this yet, but I wear contacts! In 2006, I noticed a change in my vision. After a trip to the eye doctor, it was confirmed: I needed glasses.

As an eleven year old who had braces, you can imagine how upset I was - but it was Jilly who made me look at the bright side. She said: "Sally, look at it this way, glasses are another accessory for you to have!" Like always, she was right. Some days my outfits are missing the finishing touch, and my glasses are the perfect last addition (Although, I can't lie, today I just wasn't feeling like putting on my contacts)!

As my uncle told me, my glasses are perfect for "adding the nerdy-chic look" and I completely agree ;)

  11. I love your oversized glasses, I wear similar ones and love to see pretty girls wearing them, you rock the look, distressed jeans give a cool edge to the classic look.

  28. I have to wear glasses as well, but I wear them just watching TV. Sometimes I pass by my friends or people who I know without greeting and so most of the time I'm on black book. So I have to explain them why I'm so rude on street. haha!
    Yours is sooo cool and I wish yours would be mine. I love this Geek chic look.
