On the one hand, sure, she’s cute, I guess. But you’re seriously pissing off my wife, an actual librarian. I will quote her: “What makes her a librarian? Because she’s wearing glasses? That’s so f***ing typical. Glasses equals nerdy librarian? No librarian I know dresses like that–oooh, cute shoes. Has he ever see real librarians…” and it goes on and on. I feel for her. I’m an economist. Where’re the “stylish economist” pictures?
Speaking as a school librarian, I look JUST like this ha ha. BUT in truth I wear nothing but Marni sprinkled with a bit of Dries and today I happen to be wearing black leggings with my dress…I do stand out a bit in a prep school in the English countryside,though!
i’m glad to see a few people tweaking about the “sexy librarian” tag – not just because of the faithful old stereotype of spec-sporting = studious, but also because of the offhanded sexism of it all. OF COURSE all studious-looking women are librarians. in 2007, that’s definitely the only career option available to the young miss who prefers books to boys and baubles. i know it’s about the look, here – and it’s a great look. but can we please find a new way to describe buttoned-up chic?
i am a librarian in stockholm and i dress like this, so “anonymous” whoÂ´s wife said that librarians dont look like this should come to sweden, where the librarians are hip and stylish! i also want to say that stockholm is a hard place to live in because you feel like you have too look good to be allowed to live, and if you just had a baby(like me) you are supposed to look even slimmer 3 weeks after u had the baby than u ever were before even getting pregnant. My mother lives in florida and going there is such a relief sometimes because everyone loks like crap so I know that whatever i wear will be just fine!!
