Interview with Molly from Smart Pretty and Awkward
How to be (less) Awkward: Don’t title an email with “Sorry.” Chances are whatever you are apologizing for–be it your phone dying when you were in the middle of the conversation, or for accidentally forgetting something important at work, the thread will continue after the apology has been offered and accepted. And then for the rest of the thread, going back and forth, when you see the email come into your inbox you (and the other person) will be reminded of the mistake.
I came up for the idea for SP&A when I was a senior in college, doing an internship in finance. One day in the bathroom at work, while I was blotting my face with a clean toilet seat cover, I started to think of ways I could share fun little tips like that with other girls. I was also looking for a creative outlet at the time, so the two ideas (write a blog + share tips) combined well.
I chose the name Smart Pretty and Awkward because I think everyone can relate to spending part of their days feeling smart, part of their days feeling pretty, and (if you’re me at least!) part of your days feeling awkward.
From my friends, my sister, people I walk by on the street, the Urban Outfitters catalog, and blogs I read.
Wearing a dress, pretty flats, and my hair down, and scampering all over the Village in NYC. It is one of the times when I feel the prettiest. It’s less of a fashion choice and more of a mood!
Scarves are most certainly NOT just for the winter! So much of the summer is spent inside, being cold in air conditioning, so a scarf is the perfect thing to keep in your work drawer or purse to throw on when you find yourself inside a chilly building. Also, a pretty scarf tied onto a handbag is one of my most favorite—and most inexpensive—ways to polish up an entire outfit.
5. What are some of your favorite scarves we sell here at ScarvesDotNet?
Of course, anyone that knows me know I’m obsessed with giraffes, so I was immediately drawn to the Giraffee Print Scarf . With simple khaki shorts and a white v-neck with espadrilles, you could look both safari-bound and adorable.
I’ve also been craving a loop scarf but was worried that they were made for the colder months only. I was delighted to find the Natalie Circle Scarf in white/blue. It not only combines tie-dye (a trend of this season), but is also in a lightweight summer cotton.
Finally, my mom has a birthday coming up and I can see her loving this Nautical Square Scarf…and I can see myself borrowing it from her whenever I’m home!
There's no place like home! Take me back to ScarvesDotNet.
