Star Wars Celebration just kicked off and even though I am dying to be there, I’m just going to have to be there in spirit. I mean, how awesome was it that they live streamed the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel with JJ Abrams and showed us the new trailer? I don’t know about you, but watching the panel, seeing more on set photos, being introduced to BB8 and then seeing the second trailer just made my day literally brought tears to my eyes. I’ve actually been pretty torn about this movie since I’m one of those fans who is trying to avoid spoilers, but at the same time, is dying to see more, but after seeing the new trailer, I can’t wait. How awesome was that intro scene? And what is that chrome Stormtrooper?? So many questions, yet I don’t want any answers. Anyhow, Star Wars Celebration is kicking off, spring is almost here, and there’s just a lot of Star Wars love all around this week! I can’t wait!
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
Despite the outfits that I post on this blog, I don’t always like to wear super eye-catching things on a regular basis. Take for example this fabulous “Kaboom” skirt from Top Shop. Since I’ve had it, I’ve probably only worn it 3-4 times (sadly decreasing the “value per wear”, but that’s another story). I also have to admit that I have not even mustered up the courage to wear this to work yet! Maybe one day, but for now, this will have to be one of those inspirational pieces that I’m saving for a braver day.
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!
Valentine’s Day can be one of those holidays that’s both dreaded and loved. There’s the pressure of finding the perfect gift, planning a romantic evening, and sometimes just finding someone to make plans with! With enough to think about during this time of year, hopefully there’s one thing that you won’t have to worry too much about – and that’s the question of what to wear! Today’s I’ve partnered with Tee Fury to bringing you not one, but six fun outfits for those geeky ladies who don’t want to ditch their favorite tees just because it’s Valentine’s Day. Whether you have a date with a significant other or a date with your best friends, hopefully one of these outfits will help you get date ready in no time!
Usually when I put together an outfit, jewelry is the thing I put on once I figure out what I’m wearing. But today, it was the complete opposite as I searched for something to wear with this amazing Princess Leia necklace. As I tried to look for something a little more “proper”, I ended up going with this peter pan collared dress to complete the look. I’m definitely a big fan of peter pan collars – and mixed with some vintage inspired jewelry, it’s a nice balance between a little Wednesday Addams youthfulness and old-era fashion.
It may seem like I’m always dressing up for work or going out, but when it comes to days where I’m just relaxing or hanging out with friends, I guarantee you that you’ll find me in an outfit like this. I love a good throwback tee and Peanuts definitely takes me back to the days of Sunday comics, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Vince Guaraldi tunes. Paired with a hooded puffer vest, I’m in my ultimate comfort zone. Vests are definitely one of my go-to items in the winter – they’re warm without the bulk and easily go with everything! What’s your go-to winter item?
