Merry-super-belated-Christmas and all that good stuff!

‘ello all! Christmas has rendered me completely exhausted hence my absence from the interwebs… or this blog of mine anyway. But I’m back! I hope you all had a super fabulous Christmas (that is, if you celebrate it) and got some really fantastic thing-a-ma-jigs from your loved ones! I know I did!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I ended up celebrating Christmas with my mom’s side of the family in town on Christmas Eve, and then on Christmas day my parents and I headed to Redondo Beach to celebrate with my dad’s side of the family (most of them live in SoCal), and I got to see my sister! But the best part of both celebrations is that my family and I were utterly stylish in our “ugly” Christmas sweaters from Skip N’ Whistle.

You may recall that I had a post awhile ago talking about my amazing unicorn holiday sweater. If not, you can take a looksie here.

We had to wait until Christmas day to take a complete family photo, but my mom was pretty excited to take family pictures with our boyfriends! So there’s one of me and Tim from the NorCal Christmas celebration and one of my older sister, Nikki, and her boyfriend, Ryan, at the SoCal one.

Aren’t we all so effing adorable?!

Wearing these silly sweaters just might become a family holiday tradition. ๐Ÿ˜€

Cheers

Be Right Back…

Greetings from Anaheim! My boyfriend and I left for Disneyland yesterday to celebrate our 1 year anniversary (which is actually on the 21st, but we’re celebrating early since Thanksgiving decided it wanted to be on the 22nd this year). I’ll be here eating corn dogs, sippin’ on hot cocoa, and noming on churros until Wednesday, so I may not be posting on Le Fancy Geek until after Thanksgiving.

I hope you’re all well and ready for Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday. WOO!

Cheers,
Nina

Thoroughly Modern Millie-ish

On Saturday Tim and I had a day-long date in San Francisco where we ate Dynamo Donuts, wandered around Yerba Buena Gradens, Westfield Shopping Centre, Union Square, and ended the day watching Sara Bareilles at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. HELLA EPIC! Technically we ended it by eating In-N-Out.

Anyhow, I wanted to wear something fancy, but I had a hard time putting outfits together. Everything was either too casual looking or it required my pink slip dress that wasn’t anywhere to be found. Half of my closet found its way on my bed. RUGH! But I settled with my modern flapper girl outfit: my maroon felt bucket hat, cardigan, and pink frilly dress. I ditched my t-strap heels for obvious reasons. Ever since I saw that 100 years of London style video back in August, I’ve been wanting to put together a 1920s inspired ensemble. I think I came up with this outfit in October, but couldn’t think of an appropriate place to wear it until Saturday.

Before I headed out, I threw on my furry paw scarf. Fashionable women in the 20’s wore fur stoles, so I thought it made sense.

And now I’m going to finish off this post with tons of pictures of our day!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip, Maple Bacon Apple, Passion Fruit Milk Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean
We always eat our donuts at Dynamo Park.
Fancy bear masks at the Zeum store. I ended up getting the horse one pictured in the background.
I'm an Ood!
We stumbled upon an anime meet-up. And there was a dude dressed like the 11th Doctor! I didn't take a picture of him though. His bow tie was all wrong anyway. x__x
When I went to SFSU, I liked going to Yerba Buena Gardens a lot as it was my favorite thinking spot. I showed Tim around since he's never been there.
Union Square! Tim took a picture with this crazy ass looking street performer.
We passed by Tiffany's and I had to stop to take a picture of their window display. I LOVE carousels!

I’ll be putting up my next post later today which will be all about the foul mouthed goddess: Sara Bareilles. ๐Ÿ˜€
