The Age of Adaline {Fashion Through the Ages} & GIVEAWAY!

AgeD3-010.dng

I’m sure all of you have seen the trailer for the new Blake Lively flick, The Age of Adaline. The film revolves around a woman that somehow was able to remain 29 years old for almost 8 decades. She manages to keep this a secret until she falls in love. The rest can get a little dicey. Naturally, a film spanning 8 decades is going to focus on fashion and The Age of Adaline does just that.

I thought it would be fun to show you all how you too can fool people into thinking you are ageless with your fashion – all it takes is incorporating a few key pieces from different decades into your modern wardrobe. Check it out!

70s70’s.
I tend to gravitate towards 60’s and 70’s styles. I love the more flared silhouettes and free flowing fabrics. Not to mention all the fun hair accessories! With that said, it’s easy to incorporate these looks into a modern outfit. I personally think this would make a great music festival outfit (think SunFest, South Florida locals…). Pair a basic crop top with a pair of extreme flare jeans, add a fun flower headpiece and your most comfortable pair of sandals and boom! You got a retro modern look that would make anyone flash the peace sign your way.

What I Wore: Allons-y

I had heard of Doctor Who for what seemed like ages, but I just never got around to watching it. I think I expected it to be something very different. After watching and becoming slightly obsessed with Sherlock, we decided it was only natural to give Doctor Who a shot next (same writers). I have to admit that I wasn’t instantly hooked, but about mid-way through the 2nd season, it clicked. And it clicked so good. The one word I’d probably use to describe the series as a whole is beautiful. I know it may make you snicker, but it’s all about celebrating humanity and everything that makes us special. How can you not love that?

If you are a fan of the show as well (or any geeky show/movie/etc), you must check out Her Universe. The site provides cute fandom apparel and accessories for the chic geek that takes pride in her favorites. I am all about the everyday cosplay collection because you can wear it out when you are feeling especially fangirl, or slap it on for an easy convention costume! I’m personally going to be rocking this 10 dress for the upcoming MegaCon convention in Orlando, FL in March (where I get to meet John Barrowmaneek). Definitely let me know if you will be attending too – I’d love to meet you!

The lovely people over at Her Universe are offering my readers a pretty neat opportunity to win your very own doctor dress (10 or 11 – you pick!). All you have to do is follow the easy steps below to enter!

Diary Entry #1


 

So super stoked (& unbearably nervous) to unveil my vlogger/podcaster (??) debut with The Fangirl Diaries first diary entry! I do my best to provide a spoiler-free review of the newest series of BBC’s Sherlock and I hope I did a good enough job. It’s my first time attempting this format so there were a lot of takes and a lot of bloopers. I’d absolutely love it if you could show us some love by either liking our Facebook fanpage or subscribing to our Youtube channel (preferably both!).

Also, no fear! More consistent blog entries are on their way. I’ve had a lot of extracurriculars lately keeping me busy, but I hope to be back on the blog train very very soon!
