It’s Bigger On the Inside: Doctor Who Inspired Finds

August 18th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery, Home by Meli

This picture gives me so many feels.

Guys. It’s Doctor Who week!!!! That’s right, this weekend, we are introduced to our 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi. I’m going to make a quick confession: I saw the leaked first episode (I know, I know) and he’s amazing. You will laugh…and yes, you will cry. I think I’m going to like this new direction and I hope all of you do too! In honor of the series coming back, I have compiled some of my favorite Doctor Who inspired finds. Allons-y!

Geek Out: Swimsuit Edition

August 13th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

OK, I know most of you hate me when I post about our amazing weather here in Miami, but I’m going to have to do it one more time. Although we have had a pretty terrible summer (hello rainstorms every damn day), our temperatures are still lovely and humid, making it perfect for quick trips to the beach or in my case, the backyard for some quality pool time. I always show you how you can incorporate your geekiness into every day wear, but I hadn’t thought about swimwear! Whether you are lucky enough to have tropical weather year round like us, or are taking a vacation to a tropical location, the right swimsuit is always important. Thankfully, a lot of suits are starting to go geek, giving you yet another avenue to express your fandoms, while still looking your best!

Geek Out: Time Lord Love

July 29th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Yes, I am back from San Diego Comic Con. Yes, it was magical. Yes, I am exhausted. Yes, it was worth every sleepless night. I have so much to share with you all, but I’ll start with one of my favorite outfits from the Con. Sure, it was simple, but I love that I was able to customize the shirt myself. That means I did not run into anyone else with the same tee (happens on the regular), and got a ton of compliments (even on the plane ride there)!

I always say that The Doctor is every woman’s fantasy: an attractive man that promises to take you away from your reality and on amazing adventures that make you reach your max potential. I mean, who wouldn‘t want that? And thus, I like Time Lords (sorry husband).

What I Wore: Miami Swim Week

July 22nd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Miami Swim Week continued for me on Saturday (check out my post here). I knew I would be party hopping and on my feet quite a bit, so I wanted to be comfortable, while at the same time looking the part. Although I love a good heel, I traded them in for a pair of sensible flats along with my fun and bright outfit. I wanted to throw in some personality, so I went kitschy with my British culture skirt and a whole lotta’ red!

Miami Swim Week: Escape Miami 2 & WildFox

July 21st, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Escape Miami was this past Saturday and if you didn’t join in on the {free} fun, you really missed out! This year’s event was packed with vendors, activities, shopping, and of course, beautiful people. It was held at The National Hotel and hosted by Annie of The Fashion Poet. I had a great time with the hubs in tow, despite the unbearable heat (what’s up, Miami??).

My favorite vendors were those that had some sort of interactive component (I like to play). Some of those were Eberjey (left) and Headbuds (right). Eberjey makes gorgeous intimates and had a little station where you could make your own scented satchel for your lingerie drawer. Their sea scent was absolutely divine! Headbuds had the cutest table where you could make your own flower crowns! Um, twist my arm, why dontcha. The girls were so sweet and made the process so easy! I love my flower crown so much, I’m taking it with me to San Diego Comic Con!
