Florida Supercon 2016: Favorite Vendors

While visiting Florida Supercon a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled on some pretty amazing shops/vendors/artists. I decided to highlight a few and share their work here on the blog so that my lovely readers who were not in attendance could discover some new geeky creatives.

Jess D’Alba runs Geek Chic Dressica, an Etsy shop that specializes in feminine, yet geeky accessories and clothing. She had adorable hair bows and gorgeous retro-inspired crop tops. They totally spoke to my soul by having an added peter pan collar, so you know I was instantly smitten. She had this gorgeous Wonder Woman ensemble on deck to showcase her style, and I thought it was absolutely adorable. So much so that I have just commissioned her for a custom Harry Potter piece for my birthday festivities later this month. I am so excited to see how it turns out!

Florida Supercon 2016 Outfits

A couple of weeks ago, Miami welcomed Florida Supercon to Miami Beach during 4th of July weekend. I hadn’t been to a con in a year (!!!), so it was nice to be back in my element socializing with fellow geeks! I also had the opportunity to sit on my first panel that I organized myself with some ladies I really admire, which can now be crossed off the bucket list. All in all, it was a great weekend and look out for more posts detailing my experience coming up next week on the blog!

For now, check out the outfits I put together for each day I attended the con:

Friday was my day to wander the Con all by my lonesome, check out the exhibit floor and get my first convention-based tattoo! I knew I wanted to be comfortable, but also show my geek side. As usual, my immediate go-to was a Jordan Dene tee, because what else is there?? I threw on my favorite of my extensive collection and made it chic by adding my favorite peter pan collar paired with fun pins.

Summer in Clinique Food Truck & Swatches!

In what I thought was the most fun promotion ever, Clinique took to the streets in a food truck to hand out delicious popsicles and makeup from their new Summer in Clinique line. They hit different malls all over South Florida, but I joined them at The Falls. Unfortunately, the event was rained out, but that didn’t stop them from moving under cover and continuing the party.

The popsicles were absolutely delicious and provided by Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co., which pride themselves on “keeping it real” with just fruit, water and a touch of organic cane sugar. Yes please! The makeup was also on par, with the truck showcasing some of the newest lippies from the Pop line!

Lucky for you all, I got to delve deeper and swatch the different shades so that I can share what they look like on with you guys!

The Pop Lacquer shades offer a luscious pop of liquid, high-shine color in one, full-coverage coat. It has a built-in primer that helps the color glide on effortlessly and is advertised to last for up to 6 hours. I have to say, I wore one of these shades during my vacation, and it did not last that long, but it was really beautiful. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn something so sticky and tacky, so it took some getting used to, but I love the fresh and youthful look it gives you. So perfect for a beach day!
