Nerd



blouse - Old Navy, jacket - Banana Republic, shorts and belt - Zara, tights - Hue, from The Bay, 
shoes - Dolce Vita, clutch - thrifted from Value Village, rings - H & M, glasses - Urban Outfitters
photos by  Harvey Miedreich who so graciously photoshopped the HUGE zit I had on my forehead. (Thanks Harv!)

These photos were taken after a shoot I styled. At the time I didn't think I had worn the combo of 'leopard print blouse with red jacket' and Harvey said I had and I was like "no, I don't think so" but as I was posting these photos I remembered I wore the same top half here! Harvey was right! Oh well. I'm not rich, so I do wear the same clothes and combo's more than once! And I will get out of bed for less than $10,000.00 a day, unlike Linda Evangelista ; ). If you understood that reference then you were probably born before 1990.

Thank GOD the weekend is just around the corner! I've had one of those weeks where I can't wait for it to be over. It's just been a blah week for me. The huge dump of snow we got yesterday doesn't help. I'm very much looking forward to the weekend.  Anyone have any exciting plans? Tonight I'm attending Fashion From the Floor Up, Western Canada Fashion Week's launch party (WCFW starts next Thursday!) and Saturday I'm going to the Alberta Art Gallery's Refinery Late Night Art Party. I'm really looking forward to seeing my blogger friends that I haven't seen in forever and catching up on everyone's lives ; ).

Have a great weekend!

I don't see any trace of the zit on your forehead, great job Harvey! :D Those glasses fit you perfectly! Not too nerdy, but they've got the perfect dose of hipster-ness ;)

I'm an 80s baby! Woop! :D

I love those glasses on you...and you know I'm always down for some leopard print. I hope you have a great weekend - I'm going to a sculpture show/reception this evening where a friend's work is being shown, she sculpts with ballistic gel so I'm so excited to see her work!

Have fun at the party tonight!! I wish I was going, but my bestie and I are roadtripping to Calgary for the weekend :)
It's an amazing combination so it's okay to repeat it. Love your red jacket, and the fact we both posted red jackets on the same day. Great minds think alike ;)

Gorgeous outfit, I love the coat! I wish I would make Eva's demands salary-wise! <3

clothes are made to be worn so I don't see a problem in you wearing this combination again.. besides it's styled up differently and you look great.. that's what matters.. I like the clash of red and yellow on the outfit.. cool look!

So exciting, I've been seeing all of you Alberta ladies' tweets about the past couple events and it sounds like so much fun! You look absolutely stunning here...if this is your "nerd" look, then please visit me while I'm working in the computer room of the journo lab. It's...an unfortunate sight haha. Looking beautiful as ever Marie!

You look gorgeous lady! Red + leopard = amazing combo, who cares if you wear it more than once!

Daniela said...

love your coat and your glasses. Your frames are just a little bigger than mine and I definitely like yours better!

Nic Nic said...

Judging from your newest post and this post, I would say Red is YOUR colour!!

The last photo is INCREDIBLE. I love the ketchup/mustard colour combo.

These are all such lovely photos! I love the bright red with that yellow purse, the colours really pop against that white background.
