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!

Whimsic Alley’s Holiday Geeky Craft Faire

Hey my little ponies! Over the weekend I got to be a vendor at Whimsic Alley‘s holiday geek craft faire with my friend Jen who makes super adorable fandom inspired hair bows and brooches @ Walrus Of the Sea. I’ve only done a few shows scattered over the span of the past 3 or so years, and this is by far the best one I’ve ever gotten to be apart of. 😀

It was a two-day show and I was in really good company with Riddle’s Tea Shoppe right across from me (also dangerous because I was basically shopping when things got slow), Crafted Cuteness off to the side, and 1138 Clothing not too far from me either. There were other awesome vendors there too like Nerdy But Still Girly and S&S Ink.

We ran into a few little snafus when it came to setting up our table — the main thing being poor lighting. We forgot that it was a wee bit dark inside Whimsic Alley’s Great Hall, so Jen went across the street and bought some Christmas lights and tea lights for us to put up around our table. While she was gone, a customer came by our booth and said, “I wish there were lights at this table.” Luckily, Jen came back and we had it all set up by the time they came around a second time! After the show I bought another string of Christmas lights to put on the bottom boarder of the table. It really helped bring everything out!

Unfortunately, the spots for next year’s holiday craft faire sold out already. But doing this show put a spring in my step and gave me more confidence in what I’m doing with my Etsy store. 🙂

Speaking of which, I’ll be opening my shop up again this week with my brand new Star Wars necklaces!! And Jen’s shop will have more listings for her adorable fandom hair bows and brooches, so check out her stuff too!

For those that stopped by and checked out our stuff, thank you!! ♥

cheers

IMG_5192

 

Hey my little ponies! So it looks like I fell off the face of the earth again — oops. I’m actually in Anaheim right now because I’m heading to Disneyland’s 24 hour event to kick off their Diamond Celebration tomorrow! Or technically, I’m lining up later tonight.

I’m not entirely sure how I will survive this, but I’m going to be scattering some Disney/Marvel themed necklaces from Le Fancy Geek Boutique around the park for anyone to take home!

Designs include:

  • Steve Rogers (Captain America)
  • Thor
  • Mary Poppins
  • Indiana Jones
  • Elsa
  • Baymax

Take Offs and Landings

I feel like I fell off the face of the earth as far as my blog is concerned. My bad! I’ve been working on a few new designs and products for Le Fancy Geek Boutique (Star Wars stuff to be exact!), hence my absence. I’ve been so busy that I totally forgot to make a special post for yesterday, which happened to be Le Fancy Geek’s four year anniversary! Can you believe it? It really doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that I started this little thing, but alas! To put into perspective of how old this blog is, people who were freshmen in high school when I started my blog are now seniors and are getting ready to graduate very soon. O__O

Be sure to stay tuned for a giveaway to celebrate 4 years of blogging in a few days!!!

Besides planning things for Le Fancy Geek Boutique, I’ve been busy making some travel plans as well. I’m going to Hawaii in September for my cousin’s wedding, and there’s talks of visiting Disney’s Aulani resort while we’re there! And next month I’m heading to Disneyland for their 24 hour event, and I’ve also been training for the Captain America 10k in November! I guess what I’ve really been doing is just prepping for a whole lot of Disney magic. Haha! That’s really nothing new though.

Anyhow, awhile ago I blogged about how Pinup Girl Clothing teamed up with Mary Blair’s estate for a limited collection of dresses and skirts, and I got one!!! I actually got a notification about it while shooting the Snow White outfit I posted a couple weeks ago. I had to tell Caitlin, who’s been my photographer for the last two outfit posts (thanks, Caitlin!), to hold on a minute and proceeded to order the dress from my phone. The Mary Blair collection was much anticipated by many, and I didn’t want to risk having it be sold out before I got a chance to order it! Pinup Girl Clothing is pretty pricey, but their dresses are really investment pieces for your wardrobe because they are so well made, and flattering to boot! This is now my third dress from them. 😀

Yesterday was also Pinup Girl Clothing’s Pinup Parade at the Park event (think Dapper Day, but fancy pinup ladies all over the park instead). Since I couldn’t make it, I wore this dress out while grocery shopping. 😀

I hope Monday treated you well, and don’t forget to check back on Wednesday Sunday for the blogaversary giveaway!

::EDIT:: Sorry for the delay in the posting the giveaway. Life happened, but things aren’t crazy anymore so the giveaway will be happening on Sunday instead. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

cheers

When the Clock Strikes 12

I never thought I’d ever need a petticoat (or crinoline), but since I’ve been more inspired by vintage/pinup girl fashion thanks to Pinup Girl Clothing I’ve found that petticoats are essential for making the circle skirts that I own look nice ‘n pouffy. After I scored one by Tatyana on Zulily, I’ve also found that they make me feel like an effing Disney princess! If I can’t be an actual Disney princess, I’d like to at least look or feel like one… this is what most women in their late 20s want, right?

Speaking of Disney princesses, have any of you seen the new Cinderella movie starring Lady Rose Lily James yet?! I watched it last Friday and I am OBSESSED. It’s sooo magical! The movie made me feel like a little girl full of hopes and dreams while watching it. 🙂 I thought it was a great adaptation of the animated version, and I’m really pleased with all the changes that were made, such as Cinderella meeting the prince (played by a beardless Robb Stark Richard Madden) before the ball. The story and the characters just felt a lot fuller to me than the animated version. Then again, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen it, so I could be wrong. Oh, Cate Blanchett was fabulous as Lady Tremaine! I hated her and admired her all at once. I don’t know how to explain that, but I’m sure if you see the movie you’ll understand.

I don’t really have anything in closet to do an actual Cinderella Disneybound, but I knew I wanted to put together something Cinderella-ish. The skirt with the clocks is something I got on ModCloth ages ago. It seemed more Doctor Who-ish to me at first, but when I happened upon it while trying to find pieces for a Cinderella outfit I thought it tied in with the clock at the ball.  And I don’t own any flats that resemble glass slippers, but my vintage lucite clutch seemed like a good alternative. 🙂
