What I’m Wearing: Geek Chic

Admittedly, I’m a huge nerd. So when the lovely Emma from Très Awesome snapped me for a guest post on the Modcloth Blog, the chic geek in me couldn’t have been happier! Check out the Modcloth feature here and more of Emma’s street style shots here.

I’m a research geek analyst by day, and as luck would have it, nerd has been a major theme on and off the runways the past year.

Where I spend my days from nine-to-five, fashion takes a back seat to most other things. Since designer duds and an expertly crafted color-blocking ensemble can get lost on a company full of numerical analysts, I decided to create this blog, where I’d hoped my daily efforts and arguably unacceptable collection of shoes would be better comprehended. (*I’m grateful for the awe you reserve for my Jeffrey Campbell’s, H&P!)

That said, corals + cognacs was born in March 2011, and the past year has been amazing, thanks to you. Next week continues the One Year Blogiversary celebration, so I hope you’ll stay tuned! In the meantime, don’t forget to enter this week’s giveaway (ends Saturday at noon CST). Happy weekend! xo
