First Order of Business

I know it’s only September, and December seems like a long ways away, but The Last Jedi will be in theaters before we know it!!! I can hardly contain my excitement, especially since Force Friday II has come and gone. I cannot wait to see Rose and Paige Tico because they’re not just any Asians in space — they’re Asian sisters in space!! IN A STAR WARS MOVIE!!! I actually got really teary eyed when images of Rose were first released. She’s Asian, has bangs, and a round face just like me! I finally feel like I can see myself in a fandom I love so much. Oh, and the Porgs have stolen my heart. My newfound love for them could probably be another blog post on its own, but today’s post is all about General Hux aka my Huxband. I know, I know. I belong in the trash compactor with Captain Phasma. I just have a massive crush on Domhnall Gleeson, okay? 😛

These outfit pics were actually taken last January —  I just never got around to posting them. Whoops! Seeing that today is Thursday (#TBT), it seemed like an appropriate time to write about it. At first glance I’m pretty sure you can’t really tell it’s Hux related, or could even pass as a Disneybound/casual cosplay, but I went with an all black motif like his ensemble in The Force Awakens. I wore my striped belt to emulate the ones on his coat sleeves, a red necklace because… uh… he’s a ginger, and my Captain Phasma purse from Loungefly. You can’t really see, but on my lapels I’m wearing a General Hux brooch I made myself and a silver pin of the First Order’s logo (check out up-close photos below).

When people ask if I’m on the light side or dark side, I always leaned towards the dark. I was all about giving into my negative feelings (they work wonders for writing angsty poetry, y’know?), and I can’t relate to the zen-ness of the Jedi. Plus, the dark side is so damn fashionable. Hashtag: Swag for Days! Whoever the Empire and First Order hired to make their uniforms, they are the Coco Chanel of a galaxy far, far, away. But after watching Star Wars: Rebels and Rogue One (Bodhi Rook = other space bae), I couldn’t help but think maybe I’m not on the dark side. Maybe I’m a rebel scum! They struggle with their feelings in wanting to do the right thing; they still let anger and hate consume them for just a bit, and then they get their sh!t together.

Much like Bodhi, I’ve defected. Shhh… don’t tell Huxband. Haha!

Are you excited for The Last Jedi? Are you just as obsessed with Porgs as I am? Did you buy new Star Wars swag on Force Friday II? Let’s talk about it in the comments section!

A Bespin We Will Go

star-wars-her-universe-loungefly-geek-fashion

Well, well… what have we here? An ensemble entirely dedicated to Cloud City? Hell yeah, that’s what we have here! Lately it feels like I’m wearing something Star Wars 90% of the time, so anyone who knows me outside of my blog are probably like, “this isn’t anything new.” There are days where I’m like, “Okay, try something different,” but I’ll end up in something Star Wars anyway. But it’s been a few parsecs since I’ve shared any of my ensembles on Le Fancy Geek! So it’s not like y’all know what’s going on with me. Also, wearing a flouncy a-line skirt with crinoline underneath is a bit much for some, so I had make sure this May 4th’s outfit post was, as the kids say, extra. Haha!

Modern-vintage-pinup with a touch of geek chic has been my aesthetic for quite some time now, so this Cloud City skirt by Her Universe is every girly nerd’s dream come true. I paired it with my pink top with lattice details, my denim vest (so I could wear some of my fave Star Wars pins like my glittery Millennium Falcon, Lando, and Sons of Anarchy style Rebel Scum pin), and my adorable Millennium Falcon purse! Another thing I’ve been obsessed with lately are novelty purses — particularly ones of the geeky variety (obviously). Loungefly and Bioworld have been coming out with some really fantastic ones as of late. They’re seriously like Kate Spade for nerds.

I hope you all have a Happy May 4th! May the 4th be with you in all that you do today, and hope that you grab some cool collectibles or get great deals with all awesome sales that are happening today! I’ll be working for a good chunk of the day, but of course I’ll be rocking some Star Wars threads (like any other day). 🙂

Roses Are Red, TIE Fighters Are Gray…

star-wars-style-pinup-loungefly

It’s Valentine’s Day and for once in the past three years I’m not bitter about it. Hooray for progress! I’m not doing anything to celebrate since this holiday is like whateverÂŻ\_(ツ)_/ÂŻ, but I did go out and kick it breakfast style with my friend Cailtin yesterday for a holiday that is superior by far: Galentine’s Day! But y’know, as much as I rag on Valentine’s Day like most other single people, it’s kind of hard to truly hate it because Valentine’s Day decorations are completely my aesthetic. This is something I’ve come to terms with. I love all the hearts and the pinks and reds and golds, the roses, the candy, the cute cards… UGH! I just can’t hate it. Everything is too damn cute and pretty. 😛

I didn’t wear this particular outfit today, but I thought it’d be cute to put together a retro geeky pinup look together to share on the blog for Valentine’s Day. Obviously, I had to go with a floral print skirt and Star Wars accessories! The hair flower is something my sister picked up for me a few months ago when she went to some tiki convention in San Diego. I’m obsessed with hair flowers — apparently at my tutoring gig, students refer to me as “the girl who always has a flower in her hair” — so my sister sent me some pics to see if I might want anything. How cute it is?! It’s a bit gaudy, but so fab! And I added a trifecta of Valentine’s Day-ish Star Wars pins to my red velvet top.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whether you celebrate or not, are single or taken, I hope your day is wonderful  ♄

Roses are red
Darth Vader is blue
‘Cause Padme is dead
Nooooooooooooo!
Boo-hoo 🙁

I Am One With the Floral, the Floral is With Me

A couple weeks ago my aunt randomly asked me, “Do you want to go to a LuLaRoe party?” My response was obviously an enthusiastic YES! If you’re unfamiliar with LuLaRoe, it’s a clothing company that’s pretty similar to Avon and Mary Kay in the sense that people can sign up and become sellers that work from home either full time or as a side gig. A lot of them set up Facebook groups and post their inventory so you can purchase whatever your heart desires… so long as no one beats you to claiming it! I first heard about the company through my sister as her co-worker sells LuLaRoe on the side. Girl has like 20+ leggings and I don’t know how many dresses or skirts by them! LuLaRoe’s claim to fame seems to be their fun patterned leggings which feel like butter. I own three pairs. Haha!

My aunt’s co-worker invited us to go to her daughter’s LuLaRoe party, so I went just to look. I had no intention of buying anything, but I obviously didn’t leave empty-handed! I got 3 Azure skirts, but when I tried them on I lifted it up over my bust to see if they’d look good as a dress. As you can see, it totally works! I paired this floral lavender one with my a bunch of Star Wars accessories because why not? I also recently ordered some awesome Star Wars enamel pins from BB-CRE.8, so I put them on my denim jacket. One of them is a bouquet of blue tulips coming out of the hilt of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, and the other is a speech bubble that says, “I Am One With the Force… The Force Is With Me” which is Chirrut Imwe’s mantra from Rogue One. That particular pin is really amazing because it glows in the dark (green, like the Force) and on the back it says, “Are you kidding me? I’m blind!” So many little easter eggs packed into one pin… I had to have it! I’ve actually been drooling over the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader (not pictured) bouquet pins since December, and even placed an order back in January. But it didn’t go through and they sold out! When I saw that they had been restocked, I hit “add to cart” and “buy” in less than 12 parsecs.

I just realized I never gushed about Rogue One when I watched it back in December! I’ve heard a lot of people compare it to Force Awakens, but I don’t quite think that’s fair since Rogue One is a stand-alone film. However, I will say that I had a lot more fun watching Force Awakens because it was like revisiting old friends and seeing new ones, but Rogue One‘s story, to me, was much more compelling and original. And I can’t believe I haven’t seen it a bajillion times! I definitely want to head back to the theater and watch it at least one more time before it goes away. Also, Bodhi Rook and Cassian Andor are my new Star Wars baes. Shhh… don’t tell General Hux I’ve gone rogue against the Dark Side.

Did you watch Rogue One? Let’s geek out about it in the comments section!

All the Loot: My SDCC Haul

Look at my cute lil’ General Hux Huxband Funko Pop figure! Isn’t he the cutest?! He’s one of the many things I picked up at SDCC this year.

So, I finally made a haul video to show off all the awesome stuff I picked up at SDCC. I’ve actually made a few over the last couple years, but never ever got around to actually publishing them. And even though I’ve made a few vlogs already, it’s quite odd because it’s like I’m just talking to myself. And then editing? Uugggh… listening and watching myself talk so much is w-e-i-r-d. WEIRD.

Anywho, you can watch the video down below:

Do you vlog too? Let me know how you get through it! And if you also went to SDCC, I’d love to hear about some of the cool things you picked up too 😀

cheers

Dark Side of the Garden

le-fancy-geek-heart-of-haute-vintage-style-dress-loungefly-darth-vader-purse-fashion-blogger

Hey my little, ponies! I archived these outfit pics I took a few months ago and think now is a good time to bust them out. It is Leap Day, after all! This is the outfit I was supposed to wear to my cousin’s wedding in Hawaii back in September, but the material of my dress and shoes didn’t mesh very well with the tropical climate. Thank goodness I packed another dress that worked out well! And how perfect does my little Darth Vader purse go with it? 🙂

Tomorrow I’m supposed to start another Whole 30 again. Either that or I might start during the weekend so I have more time to prep for it. Either way, I’m going to be doing a more modified version because you’re not supposed to have breath mints or gum since it contains added sugar. I refuse to walk around with travel sized mouth wash or just suffer with stinky breath. I’m gonna keep on poppin’ my Altoids, thank you very much! I’m going to continue to drink all my teas too. I got some new ones from Riddles Tea Shoppe that are absolutely delicious, but they contain some ingredients that are Whole30 no-nos. Nothing too crazy though, so I think I should be okay.

Happy Leap Day, y’all! Hope you found yourself making the most of the extra day we got this year. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try and figure out what book I want to read next!

Wookiee Wednesday: Season of the Force (Part II)

THE FORCE AWAKENS COMES OUT THIS FRIDAY, YOU GUYS!

LIKE, OMG.

WTFF?!

I. CAN’T. EVEN.

I have to wait until 1:30 am to watch it on Thursday night (technically Friday) and I’m just aching because I know that there are people out there who have already seen it! Uuugggggghhh. #SoImpatient

Anyhow, as some of you might remember I was at Disneyland when they kicked off Season of the Force last month and I made a little post about it (which you can find here), and then I said I’d post more pics, but never did because work and life have been craycray… buuuut with The Force Awakens coming out so soon, I thought it was about damn time I make part II. So here it is!

Hope you all enjoyed my pictures! Are you planning on watching The Force Awakens tomorrow night or this weekend? Lemme know in the comments section so we can geek out together! 😀

cheers
