Red 5… Standing By

Her Universe X-Wing Embroidered Cardigan Sweater with 1138 Circle SkirtI wore my Warriors T-shirt to work yesterday (Go Warriors!) and someone said to me, “Wow! No Star Wars or comic shirt today?”. I was a bit surprised and thought, “Wow, do I really wear that much geeky stuff?” Don’t get me wrong – I definitely have a lot of geeky shirts, but I do wear non-geeky stuff too! Sometimes a girl needs a good blouse or dress, you know? Which also got me into thinking how unavailable “nice” geeky clothing is for women who do want more than just a T-shirt. Even with the growth of geeky clothing, it’s still pretty rare to find professional looking geeky pieces. Even though I am constantly trying to find new and creative ways to wear my fandom and get the most out of my geeky shirts, I still imagine the day where I can just walk into a department store and find something geeky and nice. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well, Her Universe is easily on the right track. They recently came out with this super cute embroidered X-Wing cardigan that takes sweaters to a whole new level. I think one of the things that I at least look for in nicer geeky stuff is the subtlety of the fandom – something that a non-geeky person would still still think is stylish and cute, but would also make a fangirl like myself go nuts over. Ok, this cardigan may not be super subtle, but it’s definitely something I can excited about.

  1. That cardigan is so perfect! It’s annoying that there’s so little non-t shirt geeky wear. Her Universe are good, but I’d love to see more!

  2. Definitely agree with you about the availability of women’s ‘nice’ geek clothes. I found one store that had geeky infinity scarves that actually looked super nice and I was so happy (but had no money with me so I couldn’t get any :( I was thinking dressing like scarlet witch in the Avengers Age of Ultron movie would be geeky but semi-nice, because you could wear a black skater dress, red leather jacket, and a nice necklace, with boots, flats, or maybe even heels.

  3. I would LOVE to see more ideas like this!!! I look everywhere for things JUST like this to wear to work! I am not able to wear a full blown printed graphic shirt, or tshirts, so i cant wear anything with my geeky side!
    I can get away with scarves, but i cant ever find fabric, and i feel like they are a bit expensive when i find them online :(

  4. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group?
    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Cheers
