Geek Girl Gang

If you want to officially show that you’re part of the coolest gang in the ‘verse, Geek Girl Gang has got you covered!

Geek Girl Gang was founded by fellow geeky blogger/fashionista Meli earlier this year, first starting off with a set of limited edition buttons, and more recently just launched a line of t-shirts! When I first saw the announcement on Instagram, my initial reaction was “MY BODY IS READY.” So when Meli messaged me and asked if I’d like to style one of the tees for my blog, I was beyond thrilled and more than willing 😀

There are currently three different designs to choose from that are simplistic and hella cute to boot! I love that you can pair them with virtually anything and make it chic, casual, or somewhere in between. The designs are all printed on cozy American Apparel unisex tees, so it’s best to go a size down from what you’d normally wear (Meli told me that’s what her and the models did). I wasn’t too sure at first since I wear a women’s XL or XXL depending on the brand, and usually wear a men’s M or L. I just compared the sizing chart on Geek Girl Gang’s webstore to the measurements of a women’s XXL tee and picked L since it was the closest. When you go on Geek Girl Gang’s webstore, you’ll see the pics of the models say what size they’re wearing and what their bust and waist size is, which you will most likely find very helpful if you don’t make things more complicated than they need to be like myself. Ha! And BTW, the L fits just the way I like it!

The black and gold Geek Girl Gang tee is my favorite of the three — it’s so O.G. Or O.G.G. (Original Geek Girl… ha! Get it? OMG. Okay, I’ll stop). The R in “girl” also has a little heart in it which is such a darling touch! Please excuse the fact that my hair is covering said detail in all my pics.

My standard uniform is always a dress/belt combo or a tee/skirt/belt combo (often with a cardigan or some form of outerwear), so I paired my Geek Girl Gang tee with my Her Universe Star Wars skirt from Disneyland that features a bunch of baddies from the Dark Side, and my Admiral Ackbar locket by Rockets and Rainbows (Jennifer Landa‘s Etsy store) to dress it up a little and play off the gold lettering. Plus it’s Admiral Ackbar! My love for him is indescribable and knows no bounds. And of course, I threw in my beloved bowler hat because I’m obsessed with it.

I think that the simplicity in the design of the tee makes it so easy to incorporate accessories from your favorite fandoms to further show off your Geek Girl Gang cred. I’m excited to come up with different ways to style it and think of other fandom based outfits!

Shindig

My grandpa, who I call Papang (it means Daddy in Tagalog), turned 94 on June 29! Yesterday we had a big ‘ol celebration for him with tons of family. That side of my family is pretty damn huge, and even though not everyone was able to make it this year, there were still a lot of people! So basically, I haven’t had much time to rest after my Disneyland trip. I even spent 2 nights at the hotel we had the party in. And the day of the party, I spent a lot of time running errands with my sister, our cousin Amanda, and their boyfriends. Needless to say, I am über EXHAUSTED.

Ever since Papang turned 90, we’ve been having these grand parties for him and they also act as our family reunion. I think my favorite one was when he turned 92 in Las Vegas. Oh, the stories I could tell… but won’t do so on this blog. 😉

This year we did it in Stockton again so Papang wouldn’t have to travel far, but this time at the Residence Inn. We’ve done it at Mallard’s (which is now closed) and the Scottish Rite Temple (which was just terrible) — out of the 3 times we’ve done it in Stockton, I think this was best location we’ve had it at. It was nice and roomy, we had the courtyard to ourselves, everyone stayed at the hotel so we were able to hang out before and after the party. Good times all around!

Here’s a picture of Papang with all the grandchildren –5 of them are missing though. He has 8 children, 18 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren (with another one on the way!), and 1 great great grandchild. So… like I said before, my family is HUGE.

I’m just glad that I’m fortunate enough to have a strong, healthy, generous father-figure like him in my life and also be able to say that he had a helping hand in raising me as I’ve lived with him since I was a newborn (sans my 2 years away in the bay area).

I’d also like to note, at 94, Papang still goes bowling twice a week and his average score is 175. Yeeeeaaaah!!!

I love you, Papang! 😀
