Blair Badge: Model & Undercover Nerd

Model, fashion blogger and self-confessed undercover nerd, Blair Badge, shows us how to accessorize a casual chic look with a pair of clear Derek Cardigan 7004 Ice frames available exclusively from We love Blair’s style blog, Love, Blair, and how she can effortlessly pull off a powerfully chic look each and every time by sticking with her style motto: less is more!

The Inside Scoop

Name: Blair Badge

Occupation: Communication & Creative Consultant

By day you can find me: Depends on the day! Styling photo shoots, designing promo materials for my clients, organizing model castings, coordinating local events… I love that each day is different!

And by night: Besides blogging, I’m usually “nerding out” with coffee and a good book or on a date night adventure with my hubby.

My go-to accessory is: My gold bar necklace from Zoetik. When in doubt, less is more!

My favorite season for fashion is: Autumn. The more layers, the better.

If I could turn back time and live in a different era, I’d choose the: The 1920s. I’d love to have participated in the suffrage movement, as women were finding their voice in society. Not to mention, flapper dresses!

For creative inspiration, I: Peruse or Scandinavian fashion/design blogs. Or disconnecting entirely from technology and taking a leisurely walk. You never know what you may discover!

I’m most proud of: Can I say my fashion blog? I mean, if you saw me in high school you’d be shocked at how far this nerd/mega-tomboy has come!

Three things I must have in my work space: 1. Caffeine! Preferably a Cafe Miel with almond milk 2. Ear buds plugged into Spotify. Right now I have “Clarity” by Zedd on constant repeat 3. My iPhone.

The book I couldn’t put down was: The Defining Decade by Dr. Meg Jay

Glasses style I love: My new Derek Cardigan 7004 Ice readers. Clear frames go with everything!

If I could, I would raid Camille Charrière’s closet and take everything (but really!)

The quote “I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.” by Abraham Lincoln (my life motto) has always stuck with me

Street Style: Casual Chic


Blair recently posted this super chic look to her profile which features a pair of clear Derek Cardigan glasses. We love the mini skirt’s asymmetrical slit and how she paired it with a simple grey v-neck tee. Her simple silver bracelet, charm necklace and clear Derek Cardigan glasses compliment this chic look perfectly while giving it a slight edge.

Glasses Pick: Derek Cardigan

These clear plastic frames offer a modern spin to a classic Retro-Wingtip design. If you’re digging Blair’s glasses style, check out the Derek Cardigan glasses collection which includes a variety of clear frame styles from perfectly round designs to thicker Retro-Wingtip styles.
