Geekified Sexiness... and work appropriate too.


dress: F21 :: lace tights: the depths of my closet :: blue tank: F21::
belt: Urban Outfitters:: shoes: Madden Girl:: necklace: Icing


My outfit of the day is inspired by my favorite Mad Men star, Christina Hendricks. People ask me how I am able to watch and enjoy that show because of the portrayal of women. I'm not bothered by it. I realize that it's a painful truth that's part of our societal past, but for me, (I can only speak for myself) the show offers a refreshing escape from the present. Plus, most of the time, the fashion is what I'm really focused on anyway. (That's not true. Well, maybe it is. Kinda)

Back to Christina:

One cannot deny it-- this woman oozes sexiness, a concept that is extremely foreign to me. I am geeky, kinda clumsy, really awkward, most of the time clueless, and at best, SCRAPPY (seriously, one of my colleagues told me that "scrappy" was my adjective). But I can always aspire to emulate. I threw in my curves, some lace, a little color, and my messily curled hair in the mix. I'm pretty pleased.

Makeup-wise, I thought to keep it at the minimum (since my hair was already poofy): bronzed lids with a dark brown winged liner, light mascara, and a dark berry lip. Stylishly ready for a work-filled day. (Plus, I feel pretty ♥)


  1. This looks great, totally emphasizes your hourglass shape! You should wear these shapes more often!
