Nerd Glasses: Tracing the Origin

Brad Pitt for V Magazine 2007
Dear  Blogger,
The Nerd has always been a iconic image in American culture. One of the  classic symbols of the nerd are the big thick framed take up the whole face prescription glasses. The once not- cool to wear glasses has shifted over the past half century and now its considered cool to be a nerd or geek. The underdog has come out on top in the new millennium!

Honestly if you haven't rocked the nerd glasses at least once; weather it be the 3D glasses from the movie theater (u know who u are...) or your own prescription glasses, this trend has been growing quite a following since around circa 2008 when we first starting seeing glasses take that new vintage look. The years before have prepared us for this moment. Revenge of the nerds? I think so...hmmmm

SO, the question is who started this trend or where did the evolution of nerd chic become cool?




of course none other than:
Marc Jacobs Photo: Patrick McMullan
Marc Jacobs started wearing these babies circa fall/ winter fashion week 2007. It would be almost a year later before anyone else with influence would wear this again.


Then there we're the early adopters In the early stages people did not like this look, but the brave and few who stuck with it stayed true and pulled through on top.
Jay Z Nov. 2008
Kanye West 2008

2009
Justin Timberlake June 2009

I remember Justin Timberlake was the first none Hip-hop type I saw wearing the nerd glasses at the Met. gala. After that, the trend took off among all types of celebrity. the rest really is history. Now everyone

yes ladies! FOR US TOO! Girls look just as good if not better than the boys going nerdy.

Fall/Winter Shoe Trends

dear Bloggers,
fall is in full swing and if you have not gone shopping for your seasonal shoes have i got a treat for you! here are some trends we've seen on the runway that will make you look oh so chic this fall! this is pt. 1 stay tuned ; )

Thigh high boots

Jill Stuart

Over-the-knee boots are the must-have footwear for Autumn / Fall 2010. From elegant suedes to futuristic wound-and-bound leathers, the options are many and various.


Clogs


It doesn't sound like the most glamorous or practical of footwear trends, and yet the clog has reached new heights in 2010. Heeled versions are by far the best, with a preference for Swedish styles.






 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Kitten heels


Kitten heels are making a somewhat controversial return, spurred on by the trend of '50s and '60s dressing. More comfortable yet less appealing than their higher counterparts, kitten heels can work particularly well when dainty, pointed, and either retro-inspired or minimalist. When it comes to the kitten heel in 2010 it's all about the theming.


 Fur boots


I've seen loads of casual fashion boots with faux fur accents, and even a few dressier styles as well.


Zac Posen





stay tuned for three more trends tomorrow!
smooches,
CoCoJo



style guide: Rihanna

dear Bloggers,

So i would like to talk about this outfit that I'm in love with!!! Rihanna is totally working the neutral earthy tones for this fall. I was never to excited about her personal style before but since she dyed her hair red I've have loved what she's been wearing! Not many agree but i didn't ask them Xp
I've done some research and compiled my own Rihanna inspired looks from some of my favorite online sites!
Free People $90 karmaloop.com



free people $56.00 karmaloop.com
Not To Coy $124.00 at zappos.com
forever 21 $1.50 forever21.com
JoyRich $52.00 karmaloop.com

just some cute suggestions. My tip; with an all one color outfit your going to want to add some color so i recommend one of the hot colors of the season, red, but choose any color you want obviously. As far as the hair accessory goes I recommend just making your own hair accessory wit the advice of some of the links here. Its so much more fun and you'll get the exact amount of drama your looking to wear. this was fun.
smooches,
coco
