Phasing Through

Brandy Melville Moon Phase Tank and Skirt

Summer always goes by way too fast. Luckily, living in the warmer part of the Bay Area allows me to wear tanks and skirts even up till October sometimes! Brandy Melville may be every teeny bopper’s dream store, but I’m a fan due to it’s ’90s-meets-modern-day style. I’m especially a fan of their graphic tops, skirts, and basic tees that are super soft and comfy. You might say this moon phase tank totally has me “phasing” out of summer. :D

Casual Lady Vader

Junk Food Vader tee with hi-low skirtEven when I’m not dressed up as Lady Vader, sometimes I still feel like I’m channeling my inner Vader. I actually wore this outfit the other day to work and someone commented that my skirt looked like a cape. That may sound a little strange, but it actually felt like the perfect compliment considering Vader’s cape is a big part of his dark and looming presence. Even though this skirt is far from terrifying, maybe it’s enough to bring you to the dark side? :D

Mathematical Fashion

Geometric Top and Textured Midi Skirt

I don’t know if it’s just the math nerd or the fashion geek in me, but I’ve always been drawn to geometric patterned clothing. There’s something very logical about these kind of pieces – from the way the shapes in this blouse fit together like a puzzle or the way the square textures on the skirt are so evenly placed. I even love that the details on these shoes are laser-cut to precision. With all these shapes, patterns, and textures, I figured why not mix them all together? Happy Friday and have a logical and fabulous weekend!

Vintage Catch

Fish Print Denim Top and Velvet High Rise ShortsThere’s something so fun, vintage, and whimsical about animal prints. It’s actually quite silly if you think about a fish bone printed top being “cute”, but apparently that’s what this is! It might be the print or maybe the rolled up sleeveless cuffs, but this shirt definitely took me back to more of a ’50s inspired look, which is really how the rest of this outfit came to be. I definitely admire those girls who dress in vintage or vintage-like attire all the time, but if your’e like me and just want to add a touch of vintage to your wardrobe, I recommend 3 things to start with – T-strap sandals, red lipstick and something high waisted. So, what are your favorite vintage looks?

Flower Power

Lush Floral Tunic Dress

With fall just around the corner, it’s about time to pull out some transitional pieces of clothing. By “transitional”, I’m talking about pieces of clothing that can be worn in between seasons. For example, I love dresses like this one where you could wear them with sandals in the summer and tights and boots in the winter. Plus they are not only comfortable, but super easy to accessorize. Today I’m wearing my Millennium Falcon “potato chip” necklace made by my favorite laser cut jewelry makers, Unpossible Cuts. Last time I wore it, everyone thought it was a potato chip (at least in this photo). I guess I’ve been mistaken for a space slug! Happy Friday and have an awesome long weekend!

Peachy for DC

Batman tank with skirt

With all the hype and camping out at Hall H this year, I was a little nervous about getting in to the big WB/DC screening at SDCC for Gotham and The Flash, two new shows airing on WB this Fall 2014. ¬†Surprisingly enough, we were able to show up 10 minutes after the panel started and still get in Hall H with plenty of seats to spare (plus awesome swag bags!). While Gotham was dark and mysterious with glimpses of famous future Gotham villains, The Flash had the feel of one of those great teen angst/origin stories where you can already tell the main character is destined for greatness. Getting to watch these pilots were definitely one of the highlights of SDCC and I’m super excited to see them both on TV this fall. I never thought I would be watching so many DC themed shows on TV and it’s only getting better!

Let the Wookie Win

chewy3It’s just about time for my yearly trek down to SDCC, which also means another reason to head back to the happiest place on Earth – Disneyland! Everyone who’s been to Disneyland knows about the great rides, atmosphere, and just how awesome the park is. ¬†But for those of you unaware, there’s an even bigger subculture of DL that you should know about – the addictive hobby of pin trading. I got into pin trading about 2 years ago after seeing more and more traders around the park over the past few years. I already knew going in that I would probably get addicted due to my “collector’s mentality”, and it’s no surprise that I did. Pin trading is not only great for the casual trader, but also for the really hardcore ones (we’re talking about pins worth hundreds of dollars). Now I never head to the resort without my trusty pin bag(s) and thanks to my friend Jessica, now I have an even cooler one!
