I’m sure it comes to no surprise to find out that I was definitely not a cheerleader type in high school nor would I have ever even come close to wearing someone’s varsity jacket. Maybe that wasn’t even a “thing” in my high school, but I’ve definitely seen enough teen movies to stereotype the scenario in my head. I may have been as far as possible from the cheerleading world, but perhaps my inner cheerleader was just waiting for her own team to root for? I love that this Captain America varsity jacket finally merges the jocks with the geeks, at least in my version. Having made it through my first round of chemo and finally recovered (yay!), I’m feeling peppy, great, and ready to rally on to the next round!

It’s about time I had some good news and today I’m thrilled to announce another exciting giveaway with the folks at FUN.com! I scoured their crazy diverse collection of Star Wars goodies and hand picked this BB-8 purse as my next giveaway item! How cute would this be with your outfit opening day for The Force Awakens?

Gaming consoles come and go, but there’s definitely one that no one will ever forget – the Atari 2600. Who knew just a simple joystick and single button could create so much fun? I mean, if you think about how complicated games are now versus back then and the time we’ve spent on them, it’s sort of amazing how those simplistic games were able to hold our attention! I think every kid in the ’80s had an Atari or had a friend with an Atari and I myself spent many hours at other people’s houses playing Frogger, Asteroids, and Space Invaders, just to name a few. My love for gaming has waxed and weened over the years, but I’ll always have a love for the old school stuff. This bodysuit from Living Dead Clothing is spot on with it’s classic graphics, great fit, and I’m just loving everything about it. So if you’re looking for some fun and geeky spandex, definitely check them out! Oh, and their Moogle dress is seriously to die for!! Oogles of Moogles!!
Now that Force Friday shopping has calmed down quite a bit, my wallet can finally rest! In addition to all the toys I bought, the random Star Wars foods, and the two BB-8s now hanging out in my house, Fifth Sun was kind enough to send me some of their new apparel for The Force Awakens! Since a lot of the releases for Force Friday were so secretive, even they couldn’t show me what they sending over so I couldn’t wait to get the package. You can actually watch me opening it for the first time after the jump!
I can’t claim that I’ve ever read Batmanga or even knew much about it before I got this shirt. But as a Batman fan (I mean, who isn’t?) and fan of vintage styles, especially geeky ones, this shirt was an easy purchase for me. I decided to try something different with this shirt by wearing it over a bodycon dress and tying it into a knot on the side. It’s definitely a cute alternative over tucking it into a skirt and also adds a bit of a casual feel to the outfit – so much so that I thought, why not try the outfit with heels and some sneakers! Also, I have to give a shoutout to my friend Crystal over at Geek Piñata for showing me the shirt! I actually saw the outfit she put together on her feed and knew I had to get one!
It’s sadly that time of year where I get another year older and hopefully another year wiser. Sigh! I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one of those people who likes birthdays. It’s partially just the weird attention, followed by unsettling expectations, and of course just getting older. However, just like the saying goes – “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”, I also sometimes think that you should dress for the way you want to feel, not the way you actually feel. This hot pink scuba skirt is definitely helping and will for sure help me get my party on this weekend – even if it is reluctantly!
When Her Universe announced the pre-order for their new Avengers line for Hot Topic, I immediately knew I had better grab these fast. Not only were they incredibly designed, but they were also designed in collaboration with last year’s winners of the SDCC 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show! I love the retro pin-up style of the pieces and not only do they look amazing, but they have exceptional quality for the prices. I immediately fell in love with this Loki dress as I have always had a fondness for retro sweetheart halter style dresses. The green and black keep it pretty classy and the gold design on the bottom is a nice subtle nod to everyone’s favorite Marvel villain. And on that note, I wanted to officially share that Continue reading
