Let me first start this post by saying, Happy New Year! I know, I’m about 2 weeks late, but sickness took over during New Year’s Eve and I decided to take a short break from blogging to give myself some rest. But now that I’m all better, I wanted to ring in the new year with a super fun tee from one of my new favorite artists, Miss Kika. If you follow her on Instagram, she has some amazing “sugar sweet” illustrations that any girl that grew up in the ’80s will immediately love. And if you have a fondness for the kawaii/Lolita fashion of Japan, you will definitely dig her art. This Sailor Moon inspired tee with all it’s colors and gems is just so “fancy” that I knew it would be perfect for a New Year celebration outfit. 2016 was definitely a rough year for me and 2017 couldn’t have come sooner! And with that, here’s to a great 2017!
No, I’m not wearing a dress covered in loaves of bread. Those short blobs of cuteness are in fact corgis! Made by Kira Kira Doodles, I picked up this dress during Stan Lee Comic Con the other month and I have to say, it’s had quite a journey. I had purchased the dress on the first night of the con and stored it away (or so I thought) for the rest of the weekend. A few days later while unpacking from my trip, I could not for the life of me find that dress! I contacted Uber (maybe I left it in the car?) and harassed my Airbnb host to keep checking his apartment, to the point where he started to ignore my messages. Then I remembered that the last time I saw it was on the night I purchased it while eating dinner at a Korean restaurant! Could I have left my dress there?
Hopefully by now you’ve all seen the Rogue One trailer and liked it as much as I did. I can’t wait for this movie to come out, especially because it’s the first standalone movie and not a direct prequel or sequel of any of the other films. It’s pretty crazy to think that there will be a new Star Wars movie out every single year until 2020 and on top of that a new Star Wars Land opening up at Disneyland! And here’s a tip – if you look closely while riding Thunder Mountain, you can actually see some of the construction going on for it! But back to Rogue One.. Continue reading
Today’s look is brought to you all the way from the Ice Kingdom! The Ice King is one of the more interesting characters in Adventure Time and you can’t help but like him and at the same time feel bad for and sometimes grossed out by him. Plus his back story with Marceline just gets me every time. :( This was another fun top I picked up from the We Love Fine booth at SDCC (now available on their website) and I thought they did a great job turning the Ice King and Gunther into a fun Hawaiian print. I’m going from work to weekend in today’s post and honestly love both looks. Which one is your favorite?
I still can’t believe San Diego Comic-Con is over (yes, I have major con depression and con withdrawal) and I don’t even know where to begin in order to sum up the fun time I had there so let’s start with the obvious – the Her Universe Fashion Show. Obviously I love geek fashion so this is a must-see event for me. I even told some friends that this event is like New York Fashion Week for geeks, am I right? The competition was seriously fierce this year and as someone who participated in the show last year, I know how much incredible detail and work went into every garment that walked down the runway – from every bead, every appliqué, every hand made accessory – even down to the shoes. I know how much blood, sweat, and tears went into every stitch so hats off too all the amazing designers. There’s not much else to say, so on with the photos!
With Game of Thrones season 6 in full swing and last week’s episode having some “tears of joy” worthy moments, it’s only fitting that today’s post be a fun tribute to the show. I’m not going full on medieval or anything, but I found that when I was putting together this outfit, each piece I chose became more and more themed. For example, I love that this high slit tunic reminds me of Brienne of Tarth or that these leggings could belong in the realm of the Three-eyed-raven. And doesn’t this cuff remind you of our favorite Mother of Dragons?? Anyhow, I’m super excited about this season so far and can’t wait to see what happens! Hopefully more good than bad, but then again you never know with this show… And if you’re itching for more Game of Thrones fashion, check out Valentino’s fall show, which almost looks straight out of the show!
Call me old or call me uncool, but I’m completely not in tune with the music scene. I guess at some point in your adult life, you stop listening to new music, start saying stuff like “I can’t believe kids are listening to this stuff” and stick to music you listened to when you were younger. All things considered, I still somehow knew (thanks to social media) that Coachella was happening this past weekend. My friends have told me that Coachella is like the San Diego Comic Con of music – a huge festival, lots of exhibitors, and just like how people make the craziest costumes for SDCC, so is the fashion scene of Coachella.
