September has come and gone, and we found a bunch of beautiful and adorable blouses during the month. Here's a look back:
September 30, 2011
The Smocked Collar Blouse by Tucker is one we'd like to wear this time of year because we don't see enough bright colors in the fall. This top has patterned jacquard stripes throughout, a smocked elastic collar, six buttons down the front, gathered elastic cuffs, and 3/4 length raglan sleeves.

The Cardigan Sweater with Asymmetrical Front by L.A.M.B. looks quite comfortable, and we like how it isn't exactly like everyone other cardigan out there. This one has an asymmetrical four button closure at the front, a crossover V-neck, ribbed edges, welt hip pockets, and contrasting stripes at the long sleeves. It is made of mostly cotton with a bit of cashmere, and there are cables knit throughout.

We've written about Nerdy Shirts many times in the past, but the Shirt Snob was lucky enough to be given one of their t-shirts to review. We are super excited because we've been fans of their designs for a long time now. Nerdy Shirts is a t-shirt company that focuses on the nerdier aspects of life. The Shirt Snob knows that many of us are geeky deep down, so why not show that? They have a ton of funny designs that focus on such topics as Nintendo, Star Wars, cartoons, and many others.
We were sent The Internet is for Lovers tee. This tee was printed on a heavy weight, preshrunk cotton tee made by American Apparel that is machine washable. We asked for a size small. It is a fitted tee, but it is not one of those types that is so tight that it will show off any flaw if you have any. The shirt is comfortable and obviously made well with many places also double stitched. It has a crew neck and short sleeves. One important note: it fits the Shirt Snob perfectly, but we are 5'2", so if you are on the tall side, you may want to buy a size up. It also has a tag, which we can deal with, but we do prefer tagless.
The design was screen-printed onto the tee. The graphic was put on perfectly. It is centered and there is not a flaw on it anywhere. The tee is very high quality.
The majority of their orders ship the same day you place the order, and that was apparent to us. We received our package a few days before we were expecting it, and we live on the other side of the country from their LA warehouse.
We have also found their website quite easy to use. It is a cinch to find their women's sizes, which is actually not usually the case, and as we said before, you can search via subject instead. They also sell tees to men and children as well as hoodies, watches, and other accessories.
Overall, we are extremely happy with Nerdy Shirts. We highly recommend them, and we suggest you keep them in mind for holiday presents too. Everyone is nerdy about something, and Nerdy Shirts has a t-shirt design for all!
