Announcing: Nancy Drew Fashion Week!

What I Wear, What I Do And Why I Did It & Bramblewood Fashion are proud to announce our first ever co-hosted fashion week! Our inspiration is the lovely, high spirited fiction character-Miss Nancy Drew! You'll know Miss Nancy from her books written by Carolyn Keene, or perhaps from one of her movies- the most recent starring Miss Emma Roberts.

When Will The Event Be? April 1-7 2011

How Can I Enter? There are three ways you can enter:
  1. Here at my blog, by entering your blog link in a linky that will be posted on the 1st of April
  2. At Natasha's blog by entering your blog link in a linky that will be posted on the 1st of April
  3. By emailing me the photos at bramblewoodfashion(at)hotmail(dot)com with "Nancy Drew Fashion" in the subject line.
What Are The Categories? There are three categories:
  1. Nancy-Vintage
  2. Nancy-Modern
  3. Nancy-Costume
Nancy-Vintage is where you should enter all your 1940-1970's fashion sitting in your closet!
Nancy-Modern Try to ask yourself what Nancy would be wearing if she lived in 2011.
Nancy-Costume is the perfect place to enter your Nancy costumes! There's plenty of time to sew one, so hurry up!

Where Can I Find Out What Nancy Would Wear? Since not all of us are experts on what Nancy Drew would wear, this website is a great resource. It has images of all the Nancy Drew covers, by decades. You can also check out this post I wrote last year on Nancy Drew's style.

What If I Don't Know Anything About Nancy Drew, Can I Still Enter? Of course! Everyone is welcome as usual, and encourage all of you ladies to join in the fun!

Please remember that the outfits still need to be modest (of course Nancy would approve!), and I reserve the right to refuse any photos I feel are inappropriate.

Here are some buttons for all of you.

  1. HOW FUN!!! I don't know if I can enter, though, since I don't have clothing during that era, but I will definitely try!


  2. This sounds like SO much fun!
    A simply marvelous idea, girls!
    I can hardly wait=)

  3. I am SO doing this!! That is awesome! And extremely coincidental with what I've been sewing lately.... :D

  4. This sounds like fun! I was wondering something, actually two somethings now I think about it. In the costume category, does it have to be seven costumes (one everyday) or could you just make one? Also, in the same category, would doll dresses count? Just wondering. I probably sound crazy. But then, I am crazy.

    Best wishes to all! I'll be looking forward to the Fashion Week!

  5. How fun! I will totally do this! :D

    I think I'd have to do modern Nancy Drew. ;)

  6. Oh, this looks like so much fun, and I would love to participate! I'll have to be thinking of what I want to do for it. ;) Thanks for the great idea!

  7. Oooh! How exciting! I used to really enjoy reading the Nancy Drew series. I don't know if I can enter because I haven't got anything from that era, and I am still just learning how to sew, but I do look forward to seeing all the other young ladies' entries!

  8. Glad you love the next fashion week theme! :)

    Caroline - No, you don't have to do seven costumes, one for everyday. You can mix it up and do different categories each day. Your not bound to one category once you do one. :) I think doll dress would count. I'll ask Natasha and see what she thinks.

  9. Thanks Ashley for the clarification! I'm off to put one of your banners on my sidebar!

  10. This sounds like so much fun! I love Nancy Drew, and it would be a perfect chance to create some fun outfits inspired by her.(:

  11. Fantastic! What a great idea! I love Nancy Drew, and her clothes are just the best.
    Can't wait!

  12. How fun! I'll totally be doing this with you!

  13. I think I might do this!! I have this really nice sweater that I KNOW Nancy would probably wear. Although I'm not quite sure. My camera's been defying me. I'll see what happens, though, it looks like SO much fun :))

  14. Ashley! How fun! I am so excited about this. :D Do you mind if I have some different Nancy Drew themed posts during this time (Not just fashion)?

  15. this is so cute and fun, I can't wait to see what people come up with!
