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
I know, I know… You’re thinking, “Another Star Wars outfit??” Well, like it or not, right now is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Not only is there so much excitement over The Force Awakens, but Celebration VII just happened and that came with so much cool merchandise, including some very awesome new apparel from one of my favorite geeky brands, We Love Fine. I love how fashion forward they are and that especially shows in some of the new stuff that came out at Celebration. I was dying over this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder tank at their booth, but wasn’t able to get my hands on one until they got released online the other week. It’s definitely a little bit of a throwback to the ’80s (you know I love the ’80s) and this time I decided to pair it with a pair of white skinny jeans and big hoop earrings to compliment the era.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while and it’s days like today that I rely on fashion to perk up my mood. This X-Wing tank by Fifth Sun easily did the trick with it’s fun rainbow graphics and slight ’80s throwback. I decided to go even more ’80s by pairing it with this denim vest, which I am loving as an alternative piece to wear with my geeky tees. And don’t forget you can get your own X-Wing tank by entering my giveaway with Fifth Sun on Instagram! 3 lucky people will get their choice of tee or tank from Fifth Sun, so don’t miss out!
When you have enough hobbies like I do in addition to a full time job, it’s always a struggle to find a good chunk of time to play video games. I don’t know about you, but I always feel like I’m one step behind when it comes to keeping up with the latest games! Maybe it’s me getting older or being busy, but it’s been almost a year since I beat Dark Souls and it’s only recently that I just got back into playing Dark Souls 2. Of course, I’m already behind on DS2 since that came out a little over a year ago! And now that I’m somewhat deep into the sequel, out comes Bloodborne, From Software’s latest masochistic game. I’ve already spontaneously purchased the PS4 Bloodborne bundle (eek!), but knowing me, it may be another 6 months before I actually play it! So in celebration of another great release from From Software, today I’m wearing my DIY Dark Souls tank! Praise the Sun!
I’m on a roll with fun skirts and it’s been much too long since I’ve worn this Star Wars skirt, made out of the original vintage bed sheets! I made this skirt a few years back and it’s been gathering way too much dust! Although there are quite a few licensed Star Wars fabrics, this is still by far my favorite one since it looks more like a painting and a little less “cartoony”. However, being a very eye-catching print, I still wanted to keep this outfit balanced and not wear anything too busy on top. Paired with a cute crop sweater or even a basic white tee, it’s all about bringing balance to the force. :D
I’m generally not a superstitious person, but sometimes my culture can get the best of me. Yesterday was Chinese New Year and as traditions go, whatever you do on the first day of the new year is supposed to determine the rest of your year, which is usually why some people will take the day off or maybe just taking it easy that day. Although I don’t really believe in this superstition, it still crosses my mind throughout the day – what I do, what I wear, what I eat, how much I work, etc. And with the new year officially starting, I decided to try to look “professional” and less casual at work today. I know this isn’t going to last long, but at least it’s a good way to start!
