Symmetry Seven ~ Audi of Fashion for Nerds

Category: Real Girl SpotlightsEyeliah @ 9:00 am

Audi from Fashion For Nerds is more that just a stylish dresser, her blog is filled with outfit breakdowns, layering guidelines, how tos and helpful advice. She has also given us a peek into her closet including belt and shoe collections (swoon). The Fashion For Nerds blog was originally started as a way for Audi to showcase her outfits to people who will more likely appreciate them and yes we do. A practitioner of millinery she lists her one of a kind hats along with her husbands belt and harness creations at AudraJean on Etsy.
Enjoy Audi’s answers to the Symmetry Seven below.

1. What would you name your personal style?
That’s a tough one. My style has elements of mod, flapper, steampunk,
and equestrian romantic, with a lot of menswear thrown in more recently.
Whatever it is, it’s very San Francisco, I’d say.

2. Is there anything you wouldn’t wear?
I abhor anything resembling trashy clubwear, but frankly I’m open to
wearing almost anything.

3. Where do you get your outfit inspirations?
From all over, really. I’m heavily influenced by other bloggers and
people I see on the street, but I also find a lot of inspiration from
unlikely sources such as home and garden magazines. I also find that my
style tends to evolve a lot when I travel.

4. What’s your favorite non fashion hobby?
I love to do all sorts of crafty stuff such as knitting, millinery,
etc. But I’m also an avid reader and a huge ice hockey fan.

5. How much time do you spend working on your blog?
I’d say around 7-8 hours a week; the time I put into it has gone up in
recent months, and hopefully it shows!

6. What songs/albums are you loving right now?
I’m totally addicted to all varieties of latin music — Orishas, Bebe,
Nydia Rojas, and Julieta Venegas are a few I discovered recently. I don’t
really listen to the radio, so I usually discover bands or albums at
random times, sometimes months or even years after they’ve been out.

7. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A veterinarian. But being a biologist is sort of the next best thing –
I work for a company that develops drugs for cancer and other serious
diseases, so I’m helping people instead of animals.

Audi thank you so much for participating!!

    I love Audi! Her blog is seriously fantastic (I covet her shoe collection like no other shoe collection in the universe!), and she is a genius at layering (and probably 500 other things). GENIUS.

    LOVE that long chocolate brown vest with the mod hip-belt – coveting, but, must hit the elliptical again before that shape will once more flatter. Love the inspirational funky fashionistas you share here!
