With all that’s happened to me these past 6 months or so, it’s crazy to think about what I was doing just one year ago. I was definitely at a high, having just gotten accepted into the Her Universe Fashion Show and I had just started material shopping for my “She is Groot” dress. Finishing that dress was quite a milestone for me and it’s crazy to think how much has happened since then. This past weekend was coincidentally the deadline to submit designs for the 2016 Her Universe Fashion Show and a lot of people have asked me if I submitted another design. Well, the short answer is no, BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be making something fun to wear to the show anyways! This week also marks the release of Her Universe’s new Force Awakens collection, Continue reading
I’ve been in the mood for geeky accessories these days and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with Loot Crate’s last bundle of Level Up goodies. In their “versus” crate was this awesome Batman vs. Superman necklace (I’m just wearing the Batman one here) and it couldn’t go better with this floral Batman cap I picked up from Wondercon. Caps have kind of become a staple to me, especially on the weekends when I can dress super casual, so I’m looking forward to growing my collection! Also, be sure to use my code (after the jump) to save 10% on your own geeky clothing crate!
Call me old or call me uncool, but I’m completely not in tune with the music scene. I guess at some point in your adult life, you stop listening to new music, start saying stuff like “I can’t believe kids are listening to this stuff” and stick to music you listened to when you were younger. All things considered, I still somehow knew (thanks to social media) that Coachella was happening this past weekend. My friends have told me that Coachella is like the San Diego Comic Con of music – a huge festival, lots of exhibitors, and just like how people make the craziest costumes for SDCC, so is the fashion scene of Coachella.

It’s obvious that I love clothes, but I really love clothes that awaken a sense of nostalgia or emotions. So when I first saw this shirt, I was immediately taken back to the ’90s à la Saved by the Bell. For some reason, it reminded me of what a stereotypical geek might have worn in the ’90s and when I thought about it even more, I realized why! This was basically a Screech shirt! Ok, so maybe it’s not as crazy as something Screech might have worn, but I loved the patterns enough to pair it with this tweed skirt (one with suspenders no less!). We geeks may not have been cool back then, but we sure got style now!
No matter how many cons I have been to, I still never get tired of roaming the exhibit floor and checking out new booths. Wondercon had some great independent booths and as a huge Disney nerd, I was immediately drawn to Whosits and Whatsits. Yes, they have an awesome store name and yes, they have amazingly cute Disney inspired shirts! Robin Hood was actually one of my favorite Disney cartoons growing up and I have to admit I had a tiny crush on him too (can you have a crush on a fox?). I love the cleverness of this tee, especially the reference to the “oo-de-lally” song, which will now be stuck in my head all day. So if you’re a fan of this type of stuff like I am, be sure to keep an eye on their store as I’m sure they’ll be coming out with even more cool stuff in the future!
Given that corgi bodies are so strangely proportioned, I’ve always thought there was a need to make custom clothes for corgis. Well, I recently got the perfect chance to do so with Tee Fury and their “Pup Culture” tee collection. I chose one of their awesome corgi designs and converted it to fit my extra long, short legged girl, Daisy. Head over to their blog to check out my step by step tutorial for making your own doggie tee! I love how silly we look together and never thought I would have so much fun wearing matching outfits. Of course you can do this with any tee, but if you want one of their adorable pup ones, today is actually the last day to grab one, so hurry!
If there’s one thing about fashion, it’s that it can be so empowering. I love that wearing something can bring about so many emotions – feeling girly when you’re wearing a tulle skirt, tough as nails when you’re wearing motorcycle boots, or maybe even like a secret agent when you’re representing the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I love that this lightweight cardigan brings a mixture of ’50s school uniform flair while representing the team with a sweet logo on the back. I may not look as badass as the real guys, but it definitely makes me feel like I could kick some butt!
