Trend Alert: Forever 21 Twist Nerdy-licious

I am feeling completely unproductive at the moment, hence the quick blog post. Only 12 days left to stuff all this knowledge into my head, only 12 days left before my summer truly begins. I'm totally in love with a song I stumbled upon on a blog: The Man Who Can't Be Moved by The Script. I've got it reeling on repeat until the end of time.

Forever 21 just released a new Twist Collection: I ♥ Nerds. I'm sure real nerds would be offended by this but I'm all for cardigans, dorky prints, oxford flats, and big readers glasses. I remember when my high school would have spirit week and one of the days would always be Nerd Day. All the popular kids would dress up with pigtails and huge nerd glasses and tape them in the middle like Harry Potter. I would just ... show up hahahhaa. I'm a proud nerd and I enjoy making terrible puns full of esoteric crap no one else cares about. I will laugh inside but all my friends will groan *pushes up my glasses with a finger* Jk .. I don't think I'm smart enough to be a true nerd. I'm trying to grow out of that though with all my fashion and beauty endeavors.

I think some pieces from this collection are quite stylish. The volumized bangs and top bun look is also really hot for this year - perfectly applied to the kingdom of Nerd-dom. 

Here are the Lookbook promo photos (credits: Forever21.com):
Some of my favourites:

Prepster Jacket $32.80 USD: This is so poppy and I am very into red jackets. I love the collar detail and the sharp edges.
Where'd I Put My Glasses Tunic $12.80 USD: This is really cute. I am guilty of saying this all the time and they will either be on my face or in my hand hahaha. I like the pretty lace glasses in the corner and just dig vintage-y tees that have writing on weird places
 
Bow Tie Sweater $17.80 USD: I don't really like this alone but I love it with the skirt the model is wearing. I wish I had legs that long but with crew length socks this outfit is complete.
Knit Reader Cardigan $19.80 USD: I like the colour and the print. You really can't have enough cardigans in life. And how cute is that little bow?
Solid Stripes Cardigan $19.80 USD: Ridiculously preppy cute with the striped short (sold separately). The only turnoff is the back .. makes you look like a referee
Colorguard Colorblock Tunic $19.80 USD: Not really a fave but it's really unique and reminds me of the 80s. The shaping of the colorblock makes it look like leotard almost. Yay for dance clothes!
Nerdy Revenge Canvas Tote $14.80 USD: Probably the only piece I would actually buy. I love all the pockets everywhere and the cute nerds all over it. Seems like there's a zipper too for the inside so all my stuff will stay put as I'm running to class. I spy a little attachment for my cell phone :D! Darn .. now I want to place yet another order hahaha.
Forever 21 is also featuring a lot of collegiate back-to-school inspired items. I purchased 3 Boyfriend Varsity Cardigans at $12.00 USD a piece (can you say, SCORE?). Three small's in all three colours - it looks like they fit pretty snugly on the model, so it shouldn't swallow me. Perhaps I should have gotten mediums for a true boyfriend fit. I should have gotten the tote too but I have to really decide if I'll use that as much as my unfashionable backpack. They have a ton of other stuff (Yellow Tag Deal) that is super cheap on sale right when they were released. Nab them quick!
Check out this new Forever 21 Twist collection and pick up your favourite fall pieces for school or Casual Fridays at work. Thanks to everyone who has voted in the poll. Keep them coming please! Have a great weekend, lovelies! ~ ♥

It looks so asian street style and cuuuuute DX but I NEVER find nice stuff in my F21... T__T I bet all the petite sized people go and snatch all teh good stuff the instant it comes out b/c there is only one f21 even remotely near my area... And all thats left is the weird stuff no one wants, and in huge sizes =_=

Auughhh I *just* made an order w/ them >_< Should have waited 'cause this collection is AWESOME!!!

I am probably not smart enough to be considered a *true* nerd, but damn am I a total glasses-wearing, tech-loving, book-worming, esoteric-crap-quoting NERD, and proud of it! XD

I am in LOVE with that purple cardie covered in specs... and the varsity cardies... and the bag. Gaahh!!!

I'm absolutely in love with these clothes ^^ if only they open a Forever 21 here in London ! :(

I really think that the "nerd look" is laughable, since true nerds aren't supposed to be fashionable at all...It's like an oxymoron. The only part of the collection I like is the long black cardigan with hearts on it (at least, I think they're hearts, can't really tell). I do prefer the preppy collegiate look. Gosh, I don't think I've been clothes shopping since February :( GOOD GOOD LUCK WITH STUDYING AND THE MCAT! I think I've said this already, but you'll be a fantastic doctor!

I think the collection is adorable! Too bad they didn't have it while I still worked there. My fave pieces are the red and black jacket (fave colors!) and the colorblock tunic. So cute!

amanda July 26, 2010 at 10:24 PM   said...
