What I Wore: Cursed Child

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

Like every other good little Potterhead, I went to the midnight release party of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child script at my local independent bookstore. As if attending another midnight release party after nearly 9 years wasn’t exciting enough, it also fell on my birthday weekend (since Potter and I share one – humble brag). How amazing is that? I knew I had to wear something really special, so I got this crop top custom made by Jessica of DressicaDresses. You may remember I featured her shop as one of my favorite Supercon vendors. It was absolutely perfect and the evening was even more so! Sure, it was ridiculously hot in the bookstore and the lines at the bar were out of hand (yes, our indie bookstore also has a bar…and a cafe – we even had live music), but it was such a throwback to those good old Potter days of my past and a great way to celebrate another year of living the geek girl lifestyle.

Now, what did you all think of the script?
I’ll be reviewing it at length on the blog soon!

Tardis Peter Pan Top; if you have followed this blog for some time, you already know my love of the peter pan collar. I just find it so kitschy and whimsical, and it literally transforms any simple look into something a little more special. That’s why a peter pan collar combined with one of my favorite fandoms, Doctor Who, is just a perfect marriage. This cropped tee would look absolutely perfect with a high waisted skirt or jeans. Le swoon!

Magical Girl Gameboy; again, another mashup I’m a big fan of. Growing up in the golden age of Nintendo, Gameboys were all the rage. Combine that with glitter and magical girl symbology? I’m so sold. One up your pin game with this pretty.

Floral Artemis Pin; I stumbled upon the beautiful artistry of Alex Strangler via Instagram stalking and I am so glad I did. She is a tattoo artist that makes the most beautiful accessories and prints, and this Artemis pin is no exception. It’s unfortunately sold out, but there are some temporary tattoos of the design available. If you ask me, I’d prefer the real deal!

Cat Collar Blouse; I’m not a big fan of cats (ugh, allergies), but I do love them on my fashion pieces. This blouse sports the cutest kitty wrapping its little body around your neck (as one does), and I can see it working both for casual Fridays at the office and nights out with your girl gang. Snag this more affordable version on eBay.

Geek Girl Gang Launch

I really can’t believe it, but my store, Geek Girl Gang, has launched as of this morning. The store is opening with my first line of tees, which you can see above. I already have 3 more designs in the works, and my Instagram-popular pin packs will be available very soon. I have big plans for my brand, and hope you guys will enjoy what I produce. My goal was to provide fun + fashionable products for the modern geek girl that doesn’t take herself too seriously. The world is full of darkness – my goal for my online presence as a whole has always been to be a light.

With that said, I’d love it if you could check out the site, let me know what you think and snag a tee or two. ;) Feel free to share my shop with your friends that you think will enjoy it and sign up for our newsletter for updates, sneak peeks & promo codes!

It’s a pretty momentous day for me today.
Regardless of how Geek Girl Gang does, I am allowing myself to celebrate. Not everyone gets to make a dream a reality, and I am proud of myself for overcoming all the fears associated with it.

Cheers to the gang!

What I Wore: The Tardis + The Enterprise

Processed with VSCO with e1 preset

This past weekend we got to enjoy a date day. Although I adore being a mother and am borderline obsessed with my daughter, I really appreciate the time my hubby and I get alone. We went to one of our favorite haunts, had copious glasses of wine and then headed to see the new Trek film. I can’t say I was a fan of the new installment, but I thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday afternoon.

I don’t get to wear short skirts that much anymore, so I took the chance and wore one that I had tucked away in my closet untouched, and unworn. Sure, I was seeing a Star Trek movie, and I was jaunting around in a TARDIS skirt, but…does it even really matter? Who knew this fantasy-nut would grow to love sci-fi so much? Not me, that’s for sure!

Life with Luna: Little Bear Butt

IMG_8965

If there’s something I love more than dressing my little one, it is supporting other geeky mamas like myself. That’s why I adore shopping small and getting the majority of Luna’s wardrobe from Etsy. One of my favorite shops is Little Bear Butt, as it’s not only run by one of these geeky mamas, but she’s also from South Florida so it is a win/win.

She makes the most adorable shorties and pants for your little ones that span the whole spectrum of fandom: from Disney princesses to Hogwarts wizards. I’ve been buying stuff from this shop since before little Luna was born, if you can believe it, and the love only continues to grow. They are so soft and stretchy, which is perfect for these little growing bodies. Luna loves all her shorties and pants, but we are especially showcasing these two fun designs today!
