Win a Geeky Tank from Fifth Sun!

— GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED — 

If you follow Le Fancy Geek regularly, you know how obsessed I am with paring any garment that’s adorned with floral prints with something geeky. It’s my most favorite combination! Well, Fifth Sun has a wide array of cute geeky tanks and tees and a few of them combine flowers with some of my fave characters from Marvel Comics and Star Wars! I feel like they were made just for me!! The folks at Fifth Sun were gracious enough to send me one tank of my choice to review too. I seriously spent an hour and half browsing their web store before I decided to get this tank with Thor’s hammer Mjolnir, or as I like to call it “mew-mew.” I’m itching to get a Star Wars tank or tee in the near future though. I think I was just overwhelmed with their Star Wars selection because they have so many cute ones that it was impossible to settle on just one.

The only thing that I was slightly worried about was how the tank would fit me. I border between XL and XXL in tops (#bigboobproblems), and the largest size they carry in women’s is an XL. That being said, the tank isn’t too snug on me (their tops fit like junior’s sizes), but I tend to tuck my tees and tanks into my skirts and wear cardigans all the time anyway so I have no issues with the way it fits me. And how perfect does it look with my pink pleated skirt and mint cropped cardigan? Hella perfect! That’s how perfect! I wore this outfit to the first Bay Area Geek Girl Brunch meet-up last weekend (sans the crinoline) since it had a Marvel Comics theme. I think the addition of the crinoline underneath my skirt gave my ensemble a geeky retro pin up vibe too, which is a look I’ve been gravitating towards a lot lately.

Overall, I’m pretty much like: This tank. I like it. ANOTHER!

But which one do I choose?!

Good Witch of the South

outfit details – cardigan: Forever 21 // dress: Charlotte Russe // necklace: Swarovski Crystals // belt: Armani Exchange // ring + hair clip: vintage // purse: LeSportsac (buy here) // earrings: Zales // shoes: Report // glasses: Derek Cardigan (buy here) // wand: Disney Store (buy here)

Oz: The Great and Powerful was a bit of a let down for me. I’m a fan of many Oz related things, but I feel like Disney could’ve done SO. MUCH. MORE. Ugh! It wasn’t particularly terrible, just disappointing with its lack of character development on major characters. *cough*Wicked Witch*cough* It was entertaining enough for me to watch it a second time, though I have to say I mostly wanted to see Finely, the adorable flying monkey voiced by Zach Braff, again! He’s seriously the best thing in the movie. And China Girl is super cute as well. I watched it last week with Tim and then a few days later with Shanice and Jen. Before the movie came out, the girls and I talked about how fun it would be to go to the theater dressed up like the three witches in the film a la Disneybound. I already had the wand, so Glinda was my designated witch. I was inspired by the last outfit she wore in the movie since it had lots of pink, unlike the other two gowns she wore which were mostly white, gold, and silver.

Sooo… this isn’t exactly what I wore when I watched the movie with the two girls. I just made a couple of changes, like my vintage rhinestone clip and silver belt. I originally wore a white rose in my hair and a skinny brown belt. Just a few switches can really help change an ensemble! Plus the glitziness of the clip reflects Glinda’s crown much more than a white rose. I also tried to incorporate some of the elements from not just Glinda herself, like with the mixing of gold and silver accessories, but also from other characters/scenery with my my LeSportsac x Disney It’s a Small World purse featuring adorable little Dutch children that kind of look like Munchkins, and my big yellow flower ring 🙂

Would I recommend watching Oz: The Great and Poweful? Sure. Like I said, I found it entertaining, and if you’re okay with movies that don’t have amazing plot/character development, then you should be okay! It’s visually gorgeous and it has its good moments (Finely! Oh, and Michelle Williams made a good Glinda). But I dare you to try and not want to punch James Franco in the face. He was so schmoozy!

Cheers,
Nina
