A Snoopy Thanksgiving

Peanuts Gap Snoopy Sweater

Marcy may have said it best when she said –

But Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck… We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown.

Captain America Varsity Jacket

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!

Round 1 – Fight!

Chun Li every day cosplayDon’t let the Street Fighter shout out fool you, because today is a very big day. I thought I was done with the hard part, but I think my fight is just beginning. Waiting for the results of my surgery (on top of just healing itself) has been a long journey, but not knowing whether or not I would need chemo was the next big thing I was waiting for. I wish I had better news to share, but I will in fact be going through 4 rounds of chemo in the next few months. Even though I tried to prepare myself for the worst, it was still hard to hear. The decision even came down to percentages. 12% to be exact. I was basically told the difference between going through chemo or not going through chemo was 12%. But what’s really 12%? Continue reading

Armed and Ready

Tee Fury Apocalypse LeggingsWith all that’s been going on with me this past month – multiple visits to the doctor’s, getting poked and prodded with tons of needles, and just feeling worn out inside and out, it’s times like this where I really feel like insides need to feel like my outsides. I promise I’ll go into more details about my condition soon, but today I’m going to be fighting an uphill battle, just waiting for things to be over. It’s going to be a long journey, but I’m armed and ready to take on the battle.

There’s Hope In Paradise

On the Byas x Star Wars Tropical TShirt and Joggers Outfit

I think we can all say that geek girl fashion is on the rise. However, let’s not forget about the guys! It’s a nice change of pace to see that geek fashion even on the men’s side has been evolving as well! Seeing these classy Star Wars men’s accessories made me realize that even men’s fashion is expanding past your typical “insert humorous geek comment” statement tees. Another perfect example is this men’s Star Wars tropical print tee by On the Byas – it’s subtle, fun, and what I call “Star Wars hipster”.  It’s exactly what I’m hoping women’s fashion will start doing – I mean, wouldn’t you just love this print on a blouse? Anyhow, one can only hope!

My Inner Vixen

Everyday corset belt with skirt

If you’ve ever been to a comic convention, then you’ll know that corsets and geeky girls seem to go hand in hand. I’m not sure if it’s the love of cosplay, steampunk, or pirate obsessions, but if we’re talking about geek girl wardrobe staples, a corset is not a bad thing to own. I never thought I would be able to wear one as a “casual” accessory until I found this one from The Violet Vixen. I may have been summoning my inner pirate here, but I just though it looked great with this striped tee and flared skirt! Also, I couldn’t help but go for a more steampunk style since I loved the straps, buckles, zipper, and well, everything about it. They have so many styles that it’s so hard to choose from! Be sure to check out their shop as well as this interview I did with them!

Postcards from Tatooine

We Love Fine Tatooine Shirt and Maxi Skirt

We Love Fine has been on a spree of putting out some amazing stuff lately. They’ve not only just launched their mathematical Adventure Time Collection, but they’ve also got a bunch of new and really unique items in their Spider-verse collection! But one of my favorite collections has to be the Goldie Strikes Back Star Wars collection. Even though most of the collection is sold out by now, I was able to snag a few items including the Skywalker tank and this Tattooine shirt. I love the subtle artwork, the throwback to some good old ’80s art, and color schemes that are absolutely easy on the eyes. This Tatooine shirt could easily be one of those “postcard” shirts that I might have picked up on a trip somewhere. Heck, I wish it was!
