Nerdy Must Haves

Happy Meal Dress; I am absolutely in love with Bonne Chance dresses, even though I am yet to be able to purchase one. They have cute collars and kawaii designs, so what else do I need in my life? I especially love this quirky one because I often don’t get to eat fun things with all my allergies, so I opt to wear them instead as often as possible.

Potter Umbrella; In Miami, it is almost a necessity (no, no it is) to have an umbrella on hand at any moment. You never know when the sky is going to open up and ruin your day. The fact that I can have a Potter themed umbrella would make toting the enormous thing around worthwhile.

I Believe in Stardust; I am instantly drawn to anything mystical and magical in nature, so of course, I need this adorable pin from Ban.do. I love the simplicity and the pastel colors. I think it would look absolutely fabulous on my growing fandom jacket. Who says magic can’t be a fandom?

Anchorman Pencils; Who doesn’t love Anchorman? Watching this film is seriously one of the few simple pleasures in my life (no, I still have not brought myself to watch the train wreck of a sequel) and I love that some of its signature quotes are immortalized on pencils. This would be so great as swag for a Geek Girl Brunch!

Holiday Gift Guide

Guys. This is it.
The last day of November, which means that Christmas is officially upon us. I am lucky enough to have finished 96% of my shopping and can sit pretty, but I know a lot of you are still on the hunt, trying to find the best gifts for family and friends. If some of those on your list are of the geeky variety, then I’ve got a fun round up for you!

Being Geek Chic: Subtle Geekery

I was given a request after my last Being Geek Chic post on how to incorporate geeky items into basic, every day outfits. I thought this was a great idea because it is something simple that you can do on an every day basis. And lets face it, I’m not always sporting a head to toe geeky-inspired outfit (shocker, I know!) The easiest way to bring in your fandom to any look is through jewelry. I’ve put together two outfits for you all that show you how you can rock your geekery without going head to toe fangirl.

I absolutely love the hippie/boho look these days. It’s so light and easy – exactly what this new mama craves when it comes to fashion. This off the shoulder, flowy top and faux suede fringe vest from Tobi are my new go-to’s when I need to look stylish without too much effort (check out other tops and outerwear from Tobi too). I paired them with a pair of cut off denim shorts and then starting adding some fandom jewelry, like a LOST necklace and Hunger Games-inspired ring. Both pieces are subtle little nods to things I love without overpowering the rest of the look.

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!
