What I Wore: Free Comic Book Day

T5616x3744-00028

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since Free Comic Book Day, but I hope all of you were able to participate and have a great time! I’m a little embarrassed to say that our favorite local comic book shop, Tate’s, had such an enormous line for free comics that we opted to just spend money in-store instead! We got some great toys, books and art, and I was even able to leave some Geek Girl Brunch flyers behind! Overall, it was a really great day and such an appropriate time to sport my new Harry Potter polo from 1138 Clothing.

This adorable top is often paired with a custom made house skirt, but my expanding mid-section did not allow me to pick up a matching skirt. All is well though. This keeps me and Luna open to all houses. ;)

What I Wore: Modern Witch

_MG_8180

As most of you know, last weekend was the first Geek Girl Brunch Miami, and I clearly had to dress the part. Unfortunately, the outfit I had planned didn’t make it to my mailbox in time, so I had to improvise. Now rocking a bump, improvising isn’t that easy, but I think I made it work. For all those preggo ladies, or just those that are curious on how they can make outfits work when they are preggo one day, I swear by the maxi dress.

Not just a boring maxi dress, of course, but throwing a fandom crop (or tank) over it. You will probably see this in some way, shape or form over the span of my pregnancy, so I’m sorry for that. I grabbed my Gryffindor crop and pulled it on top of a comfy maxi, paired it with my favorite witch hat and bam! A modern take on Hermione on her way to brunch with her girlfriends.

What I Wore: Odd Duck Craft Fair

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! ;)

5 Fandom Friday: One Fandom Item Styled Five Different Ways

This Fandom Friday really spoke to my heart being fashion related! As you all know, I love putting together stylish geeky outfits, so I had fun with this one. It was tough to choose just one fandom item, but I finally settled on the fandom crop top. Sure, you may think that a 30-something-year-old should not be rocking crop tops, but I beg to differ. I think there are many ways to style a crop top in age-appropriate ways and I hope this post illustrates that.

There are a lot of great options out there for geeky crop tops and being convention season, these ideas may spark a little outfit inspiration (or two). Although I have many a crop top, I decided to go with my Marvel one because it’s so bright and fun.

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.
