What I Wore: Odd Duck Craft Fair

DSCF2494

I always seem to be out of town or busy whenever we have a local craft fair here in South Florida, so after a last minute change of plans (no MegaCon for me – boohoo), I was at least happy that I would be able to make it to The Odd Duck Craft Fair in Downtown Hollywood. Little victories, my friends.

Although I ultimately wasn’t very impressed with the size and turn out of the event overall, it was nice to get out on such a beautiful day, enjoy a delicious smoothie and pick up some fun accessories from some great vendors. Plus, there is always next month’s Indie Craft Bazaar at Revolution Live to look forward to!

With that said, it is HOT here in South Florida so this outing called for a lightweight outfit with subtle fandom references and some cute geeky specs. Looks like we have a lot of steamy weather to look forward to in the months to come! Start feeling that envy Northeast! ;)

What I Wore: Sunday Adventures

You may think Friday night or Saturday may be the time for adventures, but Sunday is definitely my favorite day.  Monday is lingering right around the corner, which makes it that much more special. You really want to hold on to the freedom, the experiences before another stressful work week begins. And that belief created our Sunday Fundays. We try to go somewhere new every weekend and this time around was The Alchemist in Wilton Manors. It’s such a charming little coffee and sandwich shop that grows their own produce and hand roasts their coffee. It’s also surrounded by other little shops and restaurants in the Eucalyptus Gardens. Overall, a great way to start Spring in South Florida.

Geek Girl Brunch: Miami

Local ladies: I am so excited to announce this great news!

I’ve been a big fan of Jamila’s blog, Girl Gone Geek, for some time now. Her style is on point and we share many (if not all) of the same fandoms. She is also the co-founder of Geek Girl Brunch. Geek Girl Brunch is a monthly meetup group of geeky girls in a brunch setting (mimosas are a must) that are set to a particular theme (their magical girl brunch was one of my favorites). This group was only set in NYC, but I was so happy when I heard they were looking to expand to other cities and even countries! I was so in.

Thankfully, Jamila entrusted me and I will be one of the officers for the Miami chapter of Geek Girl Brunch!!!! I will be sharing duties with the amazing Aurora, who if you remember, was our first guest on The Fangirl Diaries (check out our podcast together here). We will be officially launching in April 2015, but will be hard at work until then getting together the most perfect inaugural brunch!

In the meantime, if you are local and interested in joining the fun, head over to Geek Girl Brunch and click “Join Geek Girl Brunch.” This will immediately put you on our list. You can also start following us on social media for the latest and greatest;

What I Wore: Breezy & Balmy

Sorry to the rest of you, but in Miami, it is already summer time. We spent a great day with friends visiting places we had never been: Funky Buddha Brewery and Rock n Roll Ribs (omgz I was able to eat something). Despite a crazy storm very early morning, we had a GORGEOUS day to contend with, so I pulled together my most perfect summer outfit. Both these pieces are so light and breezy, it barely feels like you have anything on at all. Paired with my absolute favorite unicorn clutch (totally adorable, but not exactly functional – itty bitty space that barely holds a phone), I think I found my go-to outfit for the months to come.

Indie Craft Bazaar: Color Your Summer

I know I have mentioned here on the blog how much I love all things handmade, local and unique, which is why I got so excited about the Indie Craft Bazaar that took place last weekend at Revolution Live. Although I was really looking forward to it, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As usual, my expectations were not only met but surpassed! What great local talent!

Not only that, but I was able to finally meet two wonderful ladies that I have known via the Internets for years: Roxy & Jojo. We had such a great time together and although I got gluten-ed (damn you, delicious Tarpon burgers!), I think it was a successful first adventure (of many, I hope).

I’m on somewhat of a shopping freeze until next month, so it was very hard not to let my shopaholic tendencies get the best of me, but I did snatch up plenty of business cards for future shopping.

So many fun pieces to sift through – I personally squee’d when I saw the Boston Terrier pillow (they are made from actual photos of pets she has photographed) and was in awe of the beautifully hand-crafted accessories at Real Vintage Elegance (look at that tiara!!!).
