Ever since I found this Hoth inspired “ugly Christmas sweater”, I haven’t been able to stop wearing it. My favorite Star Wars vehicle just happens to be an AT-AT and after some confusion as to why there was an AT-ST on the sweater, I later found out that they do in fact make a brief appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. So in the end, all was right in the Star Wars world and I was once again content with my new Christmas sweater. I am finding as many excuses as I can to wear this as much as possible this season, which includes at least one holiday party where I’ll be wearing this outfit. There may be a lot going on from top to bottom, but I figure with the holidays, people will understand. :)
Perhaps I’ve been in the mood to wear preppy, uniform inspired clothing lately, but with Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to also share this amazing R2D2 tie that I picked up on my last trip to Disneyland. I knew I had to buy this (if not for my husband, then for myself) probably because I rarely see these type of accessories. If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your Star Wars fan (guy or girl), then this might just be it. As for how to wear it? For the girls, forget about wearing this with a collared shirt and just go casual over a tee! And for the guys, pair it with your favorite Star Wars cuff links. Happy gift giving!
They’re calling it “Stormaggedon” or as people in Florida call it, “just a typical rainy season”. If you happen to be in California or even the Bay Area, you are probably experiencing part of today’s mad and stormy weather. Lucky for me, I picked a good day to take these photos before the storm hit! Not only is Jake’s cute face plastered on this cute Mighty Fine top, it’s also… wait for it… reversible! On the flip side, you will happily find Fiona and Cake joined with Finn and Jake, fighting their way to justice! Now that’s what I call raining cats and dogs!
As you might remember, last month I participated in the Geek Fashion Show at Comikaze, which is still one of the most memorable things I have ever done at a convention. From that fashion show, I met so many cool people and of course was exposed to lots of geek fashion – some old and some new! One of the pieces that really stuck with me was 1138 Clothing’s Harry Potter inspired look. The feminine skirt with the ultra cute kitty cloak was just calling to me and I quickly went on a mission to acquire these pieces! Linda at 1138 Clothing whipped up a custom grey skirt for me and was so kind enough to let me borrow her cloak (which I now must own) and with that, I couldn’t help but post not one, but two outfits for today’s post!
With the winter season in full tow and many holiday dinners and parties to come, there’s always the question of what you should wear to those friends and family gatherings. Although there are lots of sequins, sparkles, and shimmer among popular holiday party outfits, sometimes you may not feel like being the brightest thing in the room. For those who may not want to wear gold and silver, but still want to look “family friendly”, this peter pan collar dress has just enough sheer and a cute cut that will hopefully help you through those holiday dinners!
If you’ve ever thought about the uniforms of the Imperial Officers in the Star Wars universe (because who hasn’t), you might not be surprised to find out their designs were based on the uniforms worn by the Nazis (thanks to my friend Betty for this useful trivia!) This sometimes all black and intimidating uniform was the first thing I thought of when I got a hold of this amazing long sleeve faux leather dress. With clean lines and a futuristic cut, this is an easy day to night dress that works especially well in the colder seasons. This dress will definitely command attention, even from the dark side.
Today’s post may look like a typical outfit post (which it partially is), but I also wanted to take a second to talk a little bit about the Geek Fashion Panel that I had the pleasure of speaking on at Comikaze 2014. With all the different type of geek fashion bloggers and geek clothing designers on the panel, we had a great time discussing all sorts of topics – what we’d like to see for the future of geek fashion, what our personal geek fashion style is, and even how we decide if we’re going to purchase a piece a piece of geek clothing? We definitely touched on things I rarely thought about such as “knock off” pieces and knowing if you’re buying an original design versus a copy cat. I was even surprised to find
