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!

What I Wore; Fantastic Beast

img_2648

The magic of the Harry Potter universe means a whole lot to me. I started reading the books when I met my now husband-then boyfriend. I immediately got hooked and Harry and his gang became my best friends while I went away to grad school alone, without knowing a soul in a new city. I have vivid memories of laying on my dorm room bed in the dark, completely transported to the world of Hogwarts. As the kids say, “it’s real to us.” That’s why this new film, Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them, had big shoes to fill. But I was so pleasantly surprised it did. And I’m pretty sure it filled 15 other shoes as well because it was brilliant. And magical. And made me feel every emotion possible. Can we just all agree on how great it is to have the wizarding world back with us?

With that said, I wore my very first LulaRoe purchase to see the film opening weekend, and I can understand the hype. I purchased a Cassie skirt, which is a form fitted pencil skirt. You guys know I like my ultra-feminine outfits, so this just seemed like it would be the best fit for my style. I paired it with a Gryffindor crop top, my fandom jacket, my new favorite booties + my wand, naturally. I mean, you didn’t think this witch would leave home without it, right? ;)

Sailor Moon choker; like every good 90’s kid, I am obsessed with chokers returning to the fashion scene. I have a bunch in my arsenal already, but I haven’t yet added some of the fandom variety. Cue amazing Sailor Moon choker. I love that it’s bright pink and has hardware, making it look a little pastel goth-y. Add the moon wand and we have hit perfection. Snag yours on Amazon for less than $15.

Always tee; if you don’t know about La Barbuda, then let me introduce you. She has such amazing geeky designs that make my heart swell and my wallet weep. Some of my favorites are her tee shirts, like this Always print. But she has stickers, prints and pins a plenty. If you are currently budgeting like I am, I am so terribly sorry for introducing you to this site. But misery loves company, you know.

Cylon raider necklace; Auburg Designs has always been a favorite of mine, and I am currently obsessed with their patina Cylon Raider necklace. I was late on the BattleStar Galactica train, and so sad I was. I even attended a BSG concert during SDCC one year and the entire cast was there mingling. I had only watched a few episodes here and there, but the hubs and friends were obsessed. They were beyond themselves hanging out with cast members, and I was all…erm, ok. How I wish I could rewind time! Anyways, this frakkin’ necklace would make up for it.

Dragon necklace; you have to remember the total lust and excitement all us Game of Thrones fangirls experienced over Dany’s amazing dragon necklace in Season 5. We were all left wanting it immediately after we saw it wrapped around her neck, and the time is now. Seems like we can get something pretty similar over at Art by Aelia. They are referred to as “Dragon Drapers,” and a lot are currently available for preorder. You can even get one custom made! Don’t get too excited, mothers of dragons!

Eat the Rude patch; this one is for all those Fannibals out there. One of the greatest lines ever, “eat the rude,” has become the take away quote for Hannibal fans. I think this patch would make the perfect addition to your fandom vest/jacket. If you are like me, and are putting together fandom-specific vests/jackets (currently working on my Sailor Moon one), then I suggest getting your hands on more affordable ones through AliExpress. Don’t say I never hooked you up, ladies! ;)

Potter Baby Bandana; something that really saved our lives and baby Luna’s style when she was suffering from severe acid reflux was baby bandanas. Rather than having her in an ugly and bulky bib when we would go out on the town, we would put one of these cute bandanas on and it would catch all the spit up, while not impeding on fashion (because duh, Luna has to keep up her reputation). This Potter ugly sweater one is so perfect for the upcoming holiday season. I’m not the only one swooning over it either, because it is currently sold out. Make sure to let PetiteGeekChic know you want more!

Kylo Ren print; all hail Nan Lawson! She has been one of my favorite artists for awhile now, and her work can be found scattered all over my house (most recently in Luna’s nursery), but she has been churning out some quality fandom prints lately. I featured her Kylo Ren, but she has a complimentary Rey (wouldn’t they look great facing each other???), an amazing Eleven, and this touching Snape print.

Stranger Things pin; if you are like me (and everyone who ingests pop culture like it’s air), you are a fan of Netflix’s Stranger Things. It’s everything that is good with the world, and makes my little 80’s heart happy. I am thrilled to see so many artists making swag to honor it, and I cannot wait to add this sweet Hopper pin to my collection.
