The Deadly Device [x]
Today was an unseasonably warm day that almost made me wish for some cooler weather! When I think of cooler weather in a Nancy Drew game, one of the games that comes to mind is The Deadly Device. As I’m sitting here, having snow falling outside doesn’t sound so bad, but I’m sure once this winter comes I’ll be ready for warm weather once again. To create a look inspired by DED, pair a color block sweater with a lacy jacket, a simple white skirt, a studded bag, cutout oxfords, and a hair bow. Tesla earrings, a molecule necklace, a lightning bolt ring, a gear ring, and lightning bracelets complete the look.
Secrets Can Kill [x]
Now that I’m back in the swing of school, I can play more Nancy Drew games. After I play LIE, I’m planning on going back and replaying all 31 games in order, starting with SCK. To create a look inspired by that game, pair a diner print shirt with a lace varsity jacket, a pink skater skirt, polka dotted tights, a satchel bag, cutout oxfords, and a pearl embellished hair bow. Stud earrings, a pencil necklace, a record player ring, an element ring, and a stack of bracelets complete the look.
Sewing in Emily’s Room (Secret of the Old Clock) [x]
One of the things I’ve been trying to learn lately is how to sew. I’ve made a lot of progress recently, and am now inspired by everything sewing-related I see. When I saw these adorable sewing-inspired accessories from Modcloth, I was instantly reminded of the task of sewing in Emily’s room in CLK. To create an outfit inspired by that task, pair a yellow floral dress with a crochet and lace cardigan, a straw cloche hat, cutout flats, and a cream and gold cross body bag. Button earrings, a sewing machine necklace, a cream rosette bracelet, a ruler ring, and scissors rings complete the look.
Shadow at the Water’s Edge [x]
Last night, I spent my evening outside in my back yard, surrounded by our flowers and solar lights. The atmosphere was serene, yet somewhat spooky as the night fell, which reminded me of the garden in Shadow at the Water’s Edge. To create a look reminiscent of that game, layer a deer sweater over a Peter Pan collar top, and pair with a mint skirt, cutout flats, pointelle tights, a quilted cross body bag, and a gold hair bow. Origami hummingbird earrings, and origami inspired necklace, bamboo and mint bracelets, a cherry blossom ring, and a bento inspired ring complete the look.
The Drew Home (Alibi in Ashes) [x]
The Drew’s beautiful home in ASH is by far one of my favorite locations in the series. It’s just simply gorgeous, and the light, bright, cheery feel is so wonderful. I would love to someday live in a home as gorgeous as Nancy’s! To create a look inspired by this location, pair a yellow bow front dress with a coordinating cardigan, floral lace tights, oxford shoes, a cross body bag, and a cream hair bow. Floral earrings, a locket necklace, a rosette ring, a skeleton key ring, and gold and pearl bracelets complete the look.
Jing-Jing’s Kitchen (Danger by Design) [x]
I love to bake year-round, but that passion really starts to kick in during the autumn. There’s just something about the crisp air that makes you want to curl up with a fresh-baked treat. Needless to say, I love when games include baking and cooking challenges, including baking cookies in Danger by Design. To create a look inspired by Jing-Jing’s kitchen, where Nancy bakes these cookies, pair a cream blouse with a cozy brown cardigan, pleated floral shorts over lacy tights, a striped floral and lace bag, a crochet hair bow, and color blocked oxfords. Pearl and diamond earrings, a kitchen inspired necklace, a rosette ring, and a tea set ring complete the look.
Secret of the Old Clock [x]
I’ve really been loving the vintage style lately, and the muted colors that sometimes come along with that style. The creams and browns present in a lot of items I love remind me of the locations in Secret of the Old Clock. To create a look that is a mix of modern and vintage inspired by this game, pair a pleated cream dress with a tan cardigan, crochet oxfords, a scalloped satchel, a floral-embellished cloche, and lacy tights. Button earrings, a magnifying glass necklace, clock-inspired bracelets, a cameo ring, and a rosette ring complete the look.
