Accio Geek Apparel: A Loot Wear Review

Last month’s Loot Wear was full of magical items from franchises like Doctor Strange, Kingdom Hearts, Adventure, but most importantly (at least to me anyway) Harry Potter! If you’re unfamiliar with Loot Wear, it’s a monthly geeky mystery apparel subscription service. There are 5 different subscriptions you can get, or you can pick a bundle to get multiple items!

Here’s a breakdown:

  • Wearble ($14.99)
  • Socks ($9.99)
  • Loot for Her ($14.99)
  • Tee ($8.99)
  • Undies ($9.99)

Bundle subscriptions are available too!

  • Socks & Wearable: 2 pairs of socks and 1 wearable ($20.99)
  • Risky Business: 1 tee, 1 pair of socks, and undies ($16.99)

Every month’s theme includes items from franchises that are related, so I was pretty damn excited when I saw that Loot Wear’s November wearble and socks subscriptions would include Harry Potter items! Here’s all the stuff that came with it:

  • Wearable: Harry Potter lounge pants
  • Loot Tees: Doctor Strange
  • Loot for Her: Kingdom Hearts knitted scarf
  • Socks: Harry Potter and Doctor Strange
  • Undies: Adventure Time feat. Earl of Lemongrab

Loot Tee:

I wasn’t too excited about the Doctor Strange movie despite the fact that I’m a self-proclaimed “Cumberbitch” because of the whole Asian whitewashing thing. I do want to look into the comics eventually though. With that prejudice aside, I thought the Doctor Strange tee was cleverly designed and I love the fact that it’s like an ugly Christmas sweater! I paired the tee with my navy polka dot skirt, a gold belt, and some red ballet flats. I would’ve worn my red cardigan with this, but it was nowhere to be found. Oh well!

Loot for Her:

A pair of Kingdom Hearts socks was included in a previous subscription with the same design as this scarf. Though I don’t play the game, I’ve gotten the most use out of this particular item besides the Harry Potter lounge pants because it’s super warm and cozy! I think the symbols are inconspicuous enough for me to get away with wearing it. And as you can see from the pics, I wear the scarf two different ways 🙂

Socks, Wearble, Undies:

The Harry Potter socks are hands down the best socks Loot Wear’s come out with. EVER. They are soooooooo cute!!!!! I can’t stand it! And I’ve been wearing the lounge pants non-stop (don’t worry, they’ve been washed twice already). They’re on the lightweight side, so I have to bundle up on blankets to keep me warm at night. But I still love ’em! Make sure you watch the unpacking video to get a better look at them and the Lemongrab undies.

December’s theme is “Revolution” and tomorrow (December 19) is the last day to subscribe to get it! Make sure to do so before 9pm PST!! Any of these subs would make the perfect Christmas present for the fangirl or fanboy in your life ♥

  • Socks: Guardians of the Galaxy, Mr. Robot
  • Wearable: Rick and Morty
  • Loot For Her: Spider-Gwen
  • Loot Tee: Invader Zim
  • Undies: Rick and Morty

Five Year Blogiversary!

Today marks Le Fancy Geek’s five year blogiversary! I can’t believe it’s been five years since I started this geeky fashion/lifestyle blog. I originally started it as a way for me to have an outlet that encouraged me to keep on writing and express my creativity through the clothes I wear. Who knew it’d last this long? And never did I think it would lead me to so many awesome opportunities to work with companies I’ve been a fan of for ages, or meet tons of fantastic people — some of which I can actually call my dear friends, and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of them in person ♥

As a way to express my gratitude to those who have followed me over the years, I’m going to be throwing a fabulous giveaway very soon, and I’m so excited because there’ll be five winners. So stay tuned!

cardigan: Old Navy (n/a) | dress: Material Girl (n/a)

I guess the outfit I wore to work today isn’t exactly geeky per say, but it has dalmatians all over it and I’ve been crazy for pups ever since I was little. Surely this counts as some sort of geeky get-up, right? 😛

They See BB Rollin’, Darth Hatin’

le fancy geek her universe hot topic bb-8 jacket star wars poe dameron geek fashion

‘ello, my little ponies! Like I said in my last post, I have more awkward moments with Darth Vader to share with you all 🙂

The day before my birthday I decided to wear my BB-8 bomber jacket and scarf, and Darth Vader wasn’t too thrilled by it. When we went, he had us line up and examined each of us. He saw my sister’s jacket said “Boba Fett” and said, “Good” to show his approval. Ryan’s Chewbacca tee was covered by his sweater, so Darth was kinda like I-don’t-know-about-this-one. And then when he got to me he said that he sensed that my allegiance was not with the Empire, which absolutely flabbergasted me! I mean, HOW DARE HE. How many times have I said on this very blog that I’m all about the dark side??? And it’s not like I could point out my Stormtrooper purse to him because I set it on the floor across the way. So I giggle nervously as he tells me that I can either align myself with the Empire or join the Rebellion and be crushed. You can see him telling me that I will be crushed in the picture below.

And then we got to meet Chewie! This was actually my first time meeting him since I only met Darth when I went to the meet & greets back in November when they launched Season of the Force. I met Chewie for a second time on my actual birthday. Anywho, it’s a good thing I wore my BB-8 jacket because when he was about to hug my sister he stopped when he noticed her jacket said Boba Fett. Then he began to guide her towards the exit. It was so funny! My sister said she’d like him win if he let her stay, but as we left he looked at Ryan and growled in a way that said, “Watch out for that one.” 😀

Nerdvember: Week Two

Hey my little ponies! I managed to do all 7 days for week 2 of Set to Stunning‘s Nerdvember Instagram challenge/contest 😀 This week I nearly had a Marvel themed outfit for each day.

Day 8: Princess Leia

You can totally tell when I’m too lazy to use a tripod/don’t have anyone to take my outfit pic. Haha! Anyway, it was pretty windy/rainy throughout most of the day and I had no plans to go out, but Jen and I ended up going to Hot Topic. So I threw on this pullover with a felt Princess Leia nesting doll I made last year with my black circle skirt and my pink motorcycle jacket (obviously not pictured).

Day 9: Tony Stark

This is probably my favorite outfit of week 2! I paired my Her Universe Tony Stark jacket with a brown floral skirt. And I put my little Funko Pop! Iron Man and Captain America keychains on my purse because I felt weird being all #TeamIronMan when I’m #TeamCaptainAmerica ALL. THE. DAMN. WAY. And this day was also Jen’s birthday, so we ditched the gym and went shoe shopping in Modesto after work instead. 😛

Day 10: Sherlocked

After years of searching for a bowler hat, I finally found one at the H&M in Modesto! And I was having a funky hair day Wednesday morning, so I paired the hat with my “Bored” Gold Bubble Clothing dress and my go-to Sherlock accessories.

Day 11: Captain America

It was Veteran’s Day, so I had to wear something Captain America themed. Wednesday was my stay-home-and-work-on-things-for-the-Geeky-Faire-day, so I just wore jeggings and this Cap pullover from JCPenney.

Day 12: Spider-Man

I really wanted to wear my Ryan Gosling shirt since his birthday is November 12, but it was too cold to wear what I would’ve wanted to pair with it, so I went with this Spidey pullover I found at Wet Seal last year.

Day 13: Loki

This was such a LONG day! I went to the airport in Sacramento to catch a 7 am flight to Long Beach, got picked up and dropped off to my AirBnb in Anaheim, dropped my bags off since check-in wasn’t until 3, and spent hella time at Disneyland by myself. I was hoping that Thor would be out taking pics in Tomorrowland which is why I wore my Loki dress by Her Universe, but both him and Cap are gone and Tomorrowland is basically Star Wars Land right now. Totally not complaining about that though. Thor is coming back on Monday as they re-open the Innoventions building in Tomorrowland, but Cap is being replaced by Spider-Man. Now that, I am TOTALLY complaining about. :: insert angry emoji face ::

Day 14: Cap & Peggy

I woke up in the wee hours of the morning to do the Captain America 10k (like I mentioned in a blog post earlier today), and later headed to Disneyland wearing my Her Universe Agent Carter shirt and the new Captain America necklace I made along with a Cap brooch Jen made. They’ll both be available at the Geeky Faire at Whimsic Alley next month!

cheers

Cthulhu Calling

Some friends have showered me with compliments about how photogenic I am and have been told a few times that I should model professionally. While I find it super sweet and flattering, that just makes me just want to wave my hand dismissively whilst saying, “Me? Model? Pssssshhhh.” Growing up, I never felt pretty because I was always made fun of for the way I looked — especially because I was chubby (and obviously still am). I remember in second grade I had a crush on a boy and I was sitting next to him during lunch. My BFF at the time kept saying, “I know who Nina likes! I know who Nina likes!” And even though I insisted that she shut up, she went ahead and let it slip, and the boy let me know he did not feel the same way by dropping his eating utensils and scooting the hell away from me while saying, “Uggggh! Ugggh!” 🙁

I could list more harrowing experiences from my youth that contributed to my low self-esteem, but I won’t.

Anyway, a few months ago I responded to a California open-call Sourpuss Clothing put out on Instagram to do a photoshoot for new pieces from their Fall collection. I figured, “why not?” If my friends think I have what it takes, then I should go for it. By the time they got my email they said that they had already picked out their models, BUT they liked my blog a lot and wanted to send me some of the dresses that they photographed for the shoot!  So here I am wearing one of their “Love Crafty” Cthulhu dresses they sent. 😀 I have yet to read any Cthulhu stories that H.P. Lovecraft wrote, but they’re on my infinitely long list of things to read.

Thanks for the dresses, Sourpuss! And no thank you to the boy(s) who made me feel gross and ugly. 😛

Where I’ve Been

As some of you may know, I’m also a fashion writer for Wear Your Voice Mag! I started a series called Fashion Faux Pas for the 30-Something where I feature a so-called faux pas and show how you can still rock it even if you’re 30 and over… or in my case, about to be 30! In my latest one I wrote about something near and dear to my to me: My Little Pony! Can you believe some people don’t approve of grown ass women (and men) owning MLP swag?! Check out the article here.

And here’s a list of some of the other articles I’ve done over the last few months that I totally forgot to share here:

Adopting the “Who Gives a F*ck” Attitude for a Body Positive Vacation (in which I write about how to stay positive about your self image whilst on vacation)
Comic-Con Fashionista Creates Her Own Rules (interview with Amanda Jean in which we talk about where she gets her style inspiration from )
Modern Pinup and Rockabilly Fashion at Tatyana (a review on Tatyana’s SF location)
A Cultural Invasion Hits Urban Stitch Boutique (independent designers from the UK featured in a Bay Area boutique)
Bay Area Ladies Brunch it Up With Geeky Flair (the inaugural Bay Area Geek Girl Brunch!)
Style Profile: Adriana Green of Trig & Polished (in which I interview fashion blogger Adriana Green about her personal style and where she seeks inspiration)

Under da Sea

The title of this blog post is somewhat misleading because I am completely the opposite of being under the sea. Right now, I’m up in the air on my way to Hawaii! Or maybe I’ve already landed. I don’t know. Hawaii is 3 hours ahead of my usual time, and I suck at even the most basic of math problems so trying to figure out where exactly I am at this very moment is giving me a headache. Anyhow, I’m really excited since I haven’t been to Hawaii since I was 15. My cousin is getting married this weekend on Oahu, but I’ll be staying there for a whole week. Weeee!!!

Tropical locations aren’t completely my thing (yes, I know I’m weird), but we’re staying at Aulani! Disney magic all day, every day!!! Y’know what I’m sayin’? I am going to be eating ALL THE DOLE WHIP.

Since today is Thursday, I decided to post a little throwback outfit to something I wore to Disney’s California Adventure last month. My dress has silhouettes of Ariel all over it and I just added my crinoline to give it some extra oomph. Now that I think about it, it probably would’ve been better if I wore a lavender cardigan and my orange-y/yellow flower clip to emulate Ariel’s color palette more. But oh well! I like the way this ensemble turned out, and I think it’s pretty clear that it’s an Ariel Disneybound outfit, right?

I also packed this outfit for Hawaii sans the crinoline —  I heard that it’s kinda rainy and hot (uuggghh) so I think I would be insanely uncomfortable if I walked around wearing it. Don’t be surprised if you see it on the blog again!

I’m bringing my laptop with me since I still have to work on things for Wear Your Voice Mag, but I’m not sure if I’ll be updating the blog throughout the week. I’mma be on vacation afterall! You can count on me to upload tons of pictures on Instagram though. If you don’t follow me on there yet, you can find me via @lefancygeek. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
