    Love the pattern on her dress and kind of wish you showed it in color.



    November 22, 2011 at 9:08 am

    Probably one of the coolest librarians I’ve ever seen…

    Just the tiniest little heel and this would have been perfection.

    Hooray for librarians! :). And I’m loving the sheer neckline, as in the last post.

    This look is adorable! I love the hair, the glasses, the dress, everything! I would wear this to my teaching job any day!

    if you were out casting for a librarian, she looks the part

    Extremely severe but excellent line. I like the Anton Sander type title “The Librarian”. It is almost ironic in its use!

    Haha! Well titled.

    interesting dress

    November 22, 2011 at 10:47 am

    Is she really a librarian or are you assuming that from her way of dressing?

    November 22, 2011 at 10:48 am

    I agree that a different shoe – maybe a boot? – would make this outfit less costumey. Seems a bit contrived as is. Lovely photo though.

    beautiful composition

  30. Charlotte Wilder

    November 22, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Wow. This is a fabulous dress. The sheer overlay on top adds a sexiness to the “librarian” look, especially when contrasted with the length.

    Love it.

    Check our my shoot of designer Caycee Black–today’s piece is a study in contrast as well.

    Im such a fan of the bohemian look and she pulls it off with ease!

    That print is so interesting. Great shot.

    Check out today’s look:

    The lines and shading in the walled-in background pulls the viewer towards the subject, and complements the circular patterns and drape of the dress.
    Her coquettish smile is the stuff of naughty librarian schoolboy fantasies.

  41. PopArtRockGirlYeah!

    November 22, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    As if proof were needed, being intelligent is most definitely tres stylish! The Jayne Eyre look becometh her. :-)

    Lovely photo. I think this is the same person and dress that makes a guest appearance in the ‘sheer’ post? Love the colours of the dress if it is!

    I love this shot: really working the library geek chic look.

    I’d love to see the dress in its vibrant colour too, and with her catseye sunglasses which are just visible in the other shot. Did she have another pair in her bag? Perhaps these geek chic frames are her version of flats in the handbag – more practical and more modest.

    I’d love to see the effect the catseye shades have on the demure quality of this look: contrast is so cool.

    I believe the Librarian appears in Scott’s photo of Subtly Sheer posted on Monday.

    Love this look! All the elements come together in a very vintage way but yet doesn’t age her or appear “costumey”. Nice :)

    The librarian is also subtly sheer….

    November 23, 2011 at 3:23 am

    Love! This reminds me of what was great about grunge–long rayon dresses, classic old shoes & boots worn with anything & everything, geeky chic (before it got hipsterfied). And her expression is priceless.

    What a subtly sexy librarian ensemble. Wish her dress was shot in color, the print looks really beautiful on the semi sheer fabric.
