What I Wore: Mother of Dragons

IMG_8377 copy

Our most recent Geek Girl Brunch was held at Earls in Dadeland Mall and it was Game of Thrones themed. The season 6 premiere is upon us (so, so excited) and I wanted to pay homage to my favorite character, Daenerys Targaryen. I knew I didn’t want to go full cosplay, but rather casually by emboding her vibe in something more wearable. I found such a perfect dress from Forever 21 – I don’t think I could have done better! What I love the most is that the pale blue maxi is absolutely on trend for upcoming summer days, so I see myself getting a lot of use out of it.

One of the many perks of being an officer for Geek Girl Brunch South Florida is being able to choose your favorite fandoms as a theme for a future brunch. I was ecstatic to finally host a Sailor Moon brunch, and had so much fun putting together my outfit! I knew I wanted to play on the whole biker gang sailor scout styling that I had seen roaming around the Internets, but take it down a notch, so that it would be more wearable and easy for me to move around in without feeling self conscious during our brunch.

I have to admit that I have a pretty amazing secret to share with you all when it comes to buying every day cosplay items that you may not wear consistently. It’s called AliExpress, and your wallet will thank me profusely for it. I know my bank account is ready to give me a big bear hug. That’s where the majority of my look came from, and if I told you the grand total – you may fall over.

What I Wore: Space Princess

My style has slowly been evolving now as I’ve become a mom. I’ve realized some pieces that I used to rock on the daily no longer work for my new lifestyle. I often have to be carrying an infant, changing her on the fly and generally bending over a whole lot. This means I can’t really afford short skirts or too tight anything. A lot of fandom skirts tend to be of this variety, which is why I jumped at the chance to review the new knee-length style that will be offered in skirts at one of my favorite Etsy shops, UtinniBikini. I spent this entire day running around town with Luna in tow: from brunch to cocktails, and I never once felt uncomfortable in my clothes. This speaks volumes to a new mom whose body is currently in flux. I also love that you will eventually be able to get these skirts in any of her amazing fabrics so the options will be {nearly} limitless. I, of course, had to choose the galaxy AT-AT’s because…well, just look at it. It’s flipping amazing.

If you are interested in being a “guinea pig” for UtinniBikini’s new items as well, hit her up on Etsy. She’s currently looking for ladies to model more of these knee length skirts and crop topped sweaters!

What I Wore: Hello Sweetie

What does one wear when going to meet a Time Lord?
That is what I had to ask myself last week when I was getting ready for our Geek Girl Brunch Pride, Prejudice and Zombies advanced screening. My co-chapter officer, Aurora, works in journalism, so she was able to secure this amazing event for our brunchettes and had us in the front seat: nabbing a quick meet and greet session with the stars of the movie before the theater Q&A. That meant I was going to meet Matt Smith: the 11th Doctor. My 2nd favorite Doctor. This is a huge deal for us Whovians and you could definitely smell the excitement (aside from everyone’s giant smiles and audible squee’s, of course).

Naturally, I went with sparkles because of who I am as a person. No, if I’m being honest, I definitely needed to wear this amazing tee from Jordan Dene but wanted to dress it up a bit. Thankfully, it was loose enough to fit another (sparkly) shirt underneath. The sequined collar and sleeves totally transformed the look! I paired it with my favorite new pleather leggings (because I’m Regina George-ing my 4th trimester), and the most incredible faux fur vest because it was cold in Miami for once!

What I Wore: Luna Adventures

Hi everyone! I hope you had a killer holiday break – I know I did! My hubs’ employer was amazing enough to gift him with nearly 2 weeks paid leave during the holidays so that he could spend it with us! I can’t tell you how nice it was to have him around to help, and to be able to go out on the town as a family. Luna loves to be out (wonder who she got that from) and we had such fun days together.

Although I’m bummed that I have to face reality soon (my leave ends in 2 weeks), I’m so ready to tackle this year! I love my new role as a mom, and look forward to learning how to balance and have it all in 2016. Here’s to new adventures!

Funny enough, my shirt helped me recruit a couple of new Geek Girl Brunch members while eating lunch at Yardhouse!
