S2: Diane x Madewell

Diane’s Season 2 uniform: demure knit sweaters, button-down shirts, below-the-knee skirts, all in a pale pastel palette. The eternal student and teacher’s pet, feminine yet completely un-sexy.

Madewell’s Spring 2013 lookbook offers a contemporary take on the Diane uniform while sticking to its core components. The plus? Madewell has found a way to add a bit (a very teeny bit) of sex appeal to the nerdy schoolgirl look.

The best part is that Madewell is now carrying one of my favorite brands, Ace & Jig (dress second from left), which I first discovered at Mira Mira in San Francisco.

S1E8: Carla, Geometric Prints, Mary Meyer Clothing

On rare occasions we are privileged enough to catch a glimpse of Carla Tortelli’s shoes (always Nike, always color-coordinated with her outfit). But the rest of the time, our view is frustratingly obstructed. Either wearing an apron or standing behind the bar, Carla is relegated mostly to waist-up shots. So she makes sure to always wear a killer shirt. Case in point, this geometric gem:

The most consistent modern alternative is Brooklyn (via Northern California) designer Mary Meyer, whose line of equally killer geometric-print clothing I was introduced to at Mira Mira in San Francisco.
