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.

Being Geek Chic: Vacation Outfits

No matter where you are going these last few days of summer for a little R&R, there are always ways to incorporate a little geekiness into your outfits. Now, I know I may be weird, but one of my favorite things to do is to plan vacation outfits. I don’t get to do much of that lately since vacationing isn’t as spontaneous or consistent as before, but when I do, it’s like a form of therapy. Plus, it makes it so much easier to get ready in the morning and get to having fun when you already know exactly what you are going to wear!

To show you how easy it is to incorporate your fandoms into your vacation wear, I put together 4 different looks for 4 different destinations.

beach

It’s been so hot down here in Miami lately, that a beach vacation would be at the bottom at my list at the moment. But for those of you up north dying for some sunshine and tropical cocktails (lets face it, I’m always down for those), just pair a geeky one piece with a pair of shorts and a large hat to shade you from those dangerous rays, and you’ll be good to go! I was able to put together this look incorporating geekdom with all three elements – who says you have to stick to just one fandom? Nay, I say!

festival

It’s always been a dream of mine to attend a music festival outside the state, namely: Coachella. I feel like I would probably pass out from heat and feel completely disgusting, but it would be worth it for that incredible line up. I put together this rockin’ outfit for those of you fellow music lovers. I believe the best kind of music is live music, and you’d definitely be able to enjoy it in a fandom tank (special shout out if it ties in with an amazing punk band, like this great Potter/Ramones mashup) and stretchy ripped pants. And, of course, no festival look is complete without a flower crown and big ‘ol shades!

iRead: Harry Potter + The Cursed Child

Image-1 (1)

I have been hearing so many opinions about Harry’s newest adventures in the script for The Cursed Child, and here is mine.

I was beyond excited to have more Harry in my life, so I devoured this easy read in two evenings (quite the feat when you are a new mom). It is so important to remember the format of this “book.” It is a script, it is meant to be acted out on stage, so sometimes it may read flat. It also doesn’t flesh out the world the way we are used to reading with JK. That is because it is meant to be fleshed out on stage, and I’m sure is mindblowing and gorgeous. These are things to keep in mind before reading this “book,” and things that I have seen that are popping up in reviews as strikes against it, which isn’t fair.

With that said, lets get into the SPOILER FILLED review. You have been warned. Do not continue if you have not read the script or do not to be spoiled.

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!

1. X Files Pin; In a world that is being overrun by enamel pins, it’s nice to see that fandoms are still being represented in popular trends. One of my favorite pin makers, Sweet & Lovely, kills it with this monochrome X-Files one. I personally love that you can put this on your lapel, denim jacket or as flair to your favorite bag, and it is appropriate for so many occasions. Hell, put it on your dress at the next wedding you attend – you simply can’t go wrong with a little paranormal love.

2. Harry Potter Kids Dress; In my constant hunt for all things baby geek, I noticed that one of my favorites, Linda of 1138 Clothing, now offers a Harry Potter-inspired toddler dress! This is also made in big girl sizes, so this means that we can potentially have a little “Mommy and Me” action in the future. The design is so absolutely adorable, complete with a peter pan collar (I’m such a sucker for those), oversized glasses logo and a flared house skirt. You may see me wearing one of these very, very soon. ;)

3. Bookish Dress; Can you tell I’ve been on a girly kick lately? I am absolutely loving this sweet little dress from Jesiiii. She usually is a purveyor of the most kitschy and cute designs (sometimes on wood block, sometimes on pins), but she just released this number for preorder. At $60, it’s not a bad deal for such a unique and custom piece. If Belle is your inner Disney princess, you gotta snag this bookish dress!

4. Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks; I found out about Katy Perry’s latest collaboration with Covergirl through YouTube. I saw Tasha Leelyn swatching the entire line, and now I’m super intrigued! Although I haven’t tried any of them out, I decided to add them to this list because they looked so good while swatched. I like that they have some bold colors, which is not the norm for drugstore makeup, and they are a demi-matte, which shouldn’t dry out your lips too bad. The packaging is also so killer – I love the big bold typography on white. As I’m writing this post, I’m already thinking about picking up a few at my Target run later. If I do, I’ll make sure to swatch them for you guys!
