Cubicle Chic – Daria Wannabe

Dress: Charlotte Russe | Cardigan: J. Crew | Tights: Target | Boots: Steve Madden | Frames: Thrifted | Necklace: Forever 21

Happy day and *wave* from Ohio. Last Wednesday I surprised my dad in California for his birthday and on Saturday Marvin and I surprised my mother-in-law in Ohio for her birthday.  That’s one of the best things I love about my job, the ability to tack on personal trips with business trips.  🙂  Not to mention, every time I eat with family, I eat REAL well.  #ihatewearingjeansbecausetheyarealltootight #ohwaitthisisnttwitter

Did you ever watch Daria as a teenager?  It was basically an animated television series about a pessimistic, sarcastic teenage girl dealing with day-to-day life in a suburban town.  I loved it’s interesting humor and the fact that I could relate to her as I was in high school at the time it aired.  So in remembrance of that show, I decided to put together a Daria wannabe outfit.  The bangs and the glasses, don’t I remind you of her?  Well, really I just love how well the pinks, browns and florals play together, and my infamous boots, seriously, they go with everything.  Thanks to my sister-in-law, Jenny, for taking these outfit pictures for me!

What was/is your favorite animated television series?

P.S. You have one more day to enter the Rouge and Whimsy giveaway for a beautiful headband in the color of your choice! 🙂

  10. April 17, 2011 / 10:18 pm

    I totally love Daria! I used to be just like her in high school. I’d like to think I’m a little more optimistic now, but sometimes the cynic in me just can’t be tamed. The outfit is gorgeous, by the way. I just love me some florals.

  11. April 18, 2011 / 12:03 am

    I loved Doug + Two Angry Beavers when I was younger. I would still watch it now, except they no longer show it {or I just can’t find it! :(}

  20. April 18, 2011 / 10:12 am

  22. April 18, 2011 / 10:46 am


    i envy how you can tack on personal trips to your business trips! and how sweet of you guys to surprise your dad and MIL!

  23. April 18, 2011 / 1:31 pm

    Haha I haven’t thought of that show in forever! I didn’t have cable growing up so I remember staying at friends’ houses on the weekends and staying up late watching Daria reruns to catch up. Oh good times!

  24. April 18, 2011 / 2:40 pm

    Like the Daria reference.

    I loved the likes of Scooby, Gem and the (old version) of the Chipmunks — but now I’m just dating myself.

  25. April 18, 2011 / 2:55 pm

    Very cute outfit, that dress would be most welcome in my closet as well 🙂

  26. April 18, 2011 / 4:39 pm

    Yeah, I loved Daria!! And you’re channeling her, but in such a pretty, grown-up way! I used to love Doug and RugRats too when I was little.

  27. April 18, 2011 / 5:09 pm

    You’re so jetset! So great how you can combine family/pleasure with business 🙂 Oh and I’m so loving this look! Love that dress and the glasses are fabulous! xoxo

  28. April 18, 2011 / 5:37 pm

    Oh I remember Daria!

    You look super cute, Sandy! 🙂 The floral dress is just too cute!

  29. April 18, 2011 / 6:25 pm

    Never watched Daria but I am LOVING this outfit – you look so chic. and those glasses? fave!

  30. April 18, 2011 / 6:36 pm

    I really love that floral dress, the pattern and color is not too bright or overwhelming.

  31. April 18, 2011 / 7:00 pm

    Love this. 🙂

  32. April 18, 2011 / 8:00 pm

    Oh goodness – I used to love Daria, and I totally forgot about that show! In my book, it’s totally a compliment and a fun throwback reference to be channeling Daria! You look adorable. I’m always wary of wearing my glasses on my blog, but you look so great here!

  33. April 18, 2011 / 8:05 pm

    I love it! The glasses are awesome and it does remind me of Daria. I loved watching that show.

    I still love Rugrats 🙂 I’m not sure why but I looked forward to watching it when I was still at school.

  34. April 18, 2011 / 8:24 pm

    haha sometimes i start writing hashtags in emails or on facebook. thankfully i always catch it before i hit send.

  35. April 18, 2011 / 8:41 pm

    I love Daria – we’ve been recording it, haha! You look adorable. Love you in glasses!

  36. April 18, 2011 / 9:18 pm

    I have a dress that looks so much like yours! I love florals, super cute outfit!

  37. April 18, 2011 / 9:25 pm

    I LOVED watching Daria! I felt like I could really relate to her back then, too. I was also a very pessimistic teen. haha

  38. April 18, 2011 / 9:56 pm

    Love the outfit Sandy! You look chic in your glasses!

  39. April 19, 2011 / 5:22 am

    What a lovely little dress, I like you you styled it. And your glasses are fab.


  43. April 19, 2011 / 4:24 pm

    I love Daria! I recently bought the series on DVD, and I think Nate and I finished the entire thing in less than 2 weeks. One of my favorites.

    Your floral dress is adorable!

  44. April 19, 2011 / 5:43 pm

    I have never heard of Daria before, but I love this outfit! 🙂 Favorite animated TV series… I think mine is Spongebob. I still watch it today… 😉

  45. April 20, 2011 / 8:28 am

    oh my gosh I might just have to go to charlotte russe’s website and buy that dress! It’s so pretty 😀

  46. April 20, 2011 / 11:31 pm

    i love the outfit on you and you’re so much cuter than daria!!! i wish i had gotten a pair of those glasses too so we could be twins. i actually have glasses like those but they have real lenses in them so they don’t look cute, lol. we have to go to a vintage fair/flea market the next time you’re here! a real one!

  47. April 22, 2011 / 6:13 am

    love the dress!!! and funny, i don’t think i’ve watched daria….must have been when my kids were littles and i was too busy watching barney with them!
