As a fan of Black Milk’s entire line of Star Wars items, I’ve had this Death Star dress for a while now. And I’m not sure about you, but I’ve always found it a little challenging when it comes to how to wear something so eye-catching outside of the convention halls and into the “normal” public. With the way the dresses are shown on the Black Milk site, it’s hard to get ideas on what to wear with them. Well, I took that as a challenge and here’s what I came up with. What do you wear with your BM dresses? Comment below and share your favorite things to wear with BM stuff!
I love a good comfy sweater and it only seemed fitting that this sweater, appropriately with style name “TGIF”, be worn in today’s post. Free People is known for their laid back boho style and this oversized cardigan makes me feel like I’m being wrapped in a blanket all day. And with it’s hi-lo style (short front, long back), it’s not only modern, but also effortless. To keep the look just as casual as the sweater, I paired it with my vintage art Star Wars tank, some faded skinnies, and Victorian inspired lace up boots. Hopefully with this kind of outfit, you’ll look like you just rolled out of bed on a Friday looking casual, but stylish! Happy Friday, everyone!
With season 3 of Sherlock ending just as quickly as it started, I definitely had Sherlock on the mind when I bought these shorts. Trouser style shorts can get pretty boring after a while so I love that these are not only patterned, but also textured in a nice velvety fabric. And as different as Sherlock and Watson can be, I decided to experiment with a little mixing and matching of patterns over blacks and whites. Not exactly “elementary” if you ask me, but still fun to wear!
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I decided today’s outfit had to be a bit fun and flirty! I’m not really one to show much skin, but I suddenly didn’t seem to care when I saw this amazing R2-D2 centered crop top. And as for the flirty part, you can’t go wrong with a floral skirt, especially one with a little bit of poof underneath. Hope your v-day is filled with love!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and even though I am all for creative gift giving, you also can’t go wrong with jewelry, especially if that jewelry matches her geeky personality! She will definitely appreciate the thought that went into finding that special piece and just to make things easier, here are some recommendations for those of you looking for something stylish and geeky (see what I did there?), but also something on the fancier end. Also, definitely let me know what you think of my picks and if you would recommend any other pieces!
I’ve had my fair share of dressy posts in this blog, but once in a while I just have to throw on a comfy sweatshirt (like this Spider-Man one), basic jeans, and Converse sneakers. I think every nerd needs their Chuck Taylors (which is perfect timing since I’m in the middle of a Chuck marathon). And if you’re wondering what’s going on with the pose in the above photo? Hopefully you might recognize it as a little mini tribute to one of my favorite comic book artists, J. Scott Campbell, and his amazing Mary Jane statue that came out this month!
I’m not sure why someone thought it might be a good idea to wear the color “mustard”. Even though the color reminds me of different things – ’70s furniture, dirty yellow paint, or even things that come out of my dog, it still makes for a great colored sweater. Sorry, hope that didn’t gross you out. And with any bold colors, it’s usually a good idea to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple – today with greys and blacks including these fun letter print tights!
