What I Wore: The Dark Defender of Brunch

December 15th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

So sorry for my absence, everyone!!! Life got in the way, as it usually does.
But I’m back! And plan on being back regularly – I have a lot of big things planned for 2015 and I can’t wait to share them all with you!

Can we talk a little about brunch? I’m obsessed. I’ve always loved breakfast food the best, and lord knows I love me a good mimosa. Over the weekend, we just discovered the best of the best brunch spots in Miami: Rok Burger. Why are they the best? FREE MIMOSAS TO ALL LADIES. You had me at free. I can’t wait to possibly host our first Geek Girl Brunch there come April!

With that said, we have been experiencing some pretty delicious sweater weather here in Miami, so I’ve been having fun layering girly with geeky. Sunday brunch was no exception. I’d like to think I did my job when the bartender was shocked at my birth date when she carded me, “What! You are deceiving with your little batman outfit.” Score.

Geek Out: Time Lord Love

July 29th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli

Yes, I am back from San Diego Comic Con. Yes, it was magical. Yes, I am exhausted. Yes, it was worth every sleepless night. I have so much to share with you all, but I’ll start with one of my favorite outfits from the Con. Sure, it was simple, but I love that I was able to customize the shirt myself. That means I did not run into anyone else with the same tee (happens on the regular), and got a ton of compliments (even on the plane ride there)!

I always say that The Doctor is every woman’s fantasy: an attractive man that promises to take you away from your reality and on amazing adventures that make you reach your max potential. I mean, who wouldn‘t want that? And thus, I like Time Lords (sorry husband).

What I Wore: Miami Swim Week

July 22nd, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Miami Swim Week continued for me on Saturday (check out my post here). I knew I would be party hopping and on my feet quite a bit, so I wanted to be comfortable, while at the same time looking the part. Although I love a good heel, I traded them in for a pair of sensible flats along with my fun and bright outfit. I wanted to throw in some personality, so I went kitschy with my British culture skirt and a whole lotta’ red!

What I Wore: I’m On A Boat!

July 19th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Local by Meli

Remember these pretty great shorts? Well, here’s my second way to style them! Being that my first Miami Swim Week event was atop a yacht, I figured I should dress the part! I picked a vibrant top that would complement the nautical basic. Pair it with some bright and fun accessories, like my shades and earrings, and you have the perfect summer brunch outfit. Something that really makes this outfit pop? The open back cutouts (& my awesome, yet peeling, tattoo)!

Special thanks to Netty of The Fashionable ESQ for taking these shots for me!

Geek Chic: Day of the Doctor

July 17th, 2014 | Posted in Fashion, Geekery by Meli


As you all know, I got a Doctor Who tattoo this past weekend (read about why here). I know it may have been a little cheesy, but I thought I should go at least moderately themed out, right? I decided to take the iconic Tardis blue and incorporate it into my entire outfit. I made sure the pieces I chose were lightweight and comfortable, since I was going to be sitting down in a very tense position for hours, most probably while sweating profusely (hi, anxiety). I added the true touch of geek with a Tardis trucker-style hat, which I plan on wearing every day of my life thankyouverymuch.

For the rest of this week, I plan on showcasing all the different ways you can pair these great pair of shorts from Conversation Pieces. I found them to be so versatile – they can work for so many occasions! Obviously, this first look is how to rock them casually.
