These are a few of my favorite trends…

Greetings glorious readers! So as you know, Mark and I get married in only 26 days… and hop onto a big fancy cruise ship in only 28 days. You know I need stuff to wear on that boat, and that means… cute clothes! Here are some of my favorite trends, and a few items I recently bought to up my kawaii geek style game.

1. Lace shorts. As long as they don’t look too much like underwear, they are the perfect combination of feminine and comfortable. • 2. 2D bags. Yes! I have always wanted to live in a cartoon, and now my dreams are slowly coming true… and in so many choices! • 3. Mock thigh highs. They come in an insane amount of adorable styles, including kitties, bows, and more. • 4. All over prints… like this awesome Adventure Time one from Mighty Fine! I’ve seen rad ones of Bart Simpson, hamburgers, and so much more nonsense. I love it! • 5. Pinafores. Whimsical, childlike, and comfy. Need I say more? • 6. It’s a cat head purse. Yup! • 7. Big round bug-eye sunglasses. These ones are slightly creepy, and I just adore them! • 8. Kawaii tanks. I prefer tanks over tees in general, but this one is just spot on Totoro-tastic. • 9. Comfy, vintage, oversized tees, like this Star Wars one from Junk Food Clothing. • 10. Patterned flats, like these lamby ones from Iron Fist Clothing.

Battlestar Galactica Seal Sweatshirt from Her Universe

As I’ve said many times… one of the best perks of being a blogger is being able to do reviews of products I love. Her Universe is a brand I am a huge fan of – for the quality and content! Today I’m modeling a gorgeous Battlestar Galactica Seal crew neck sweatshirt from the leader in geek girl couture, Her Universe.

Wearing the Battlestar Galactica Seal Sweatshirt from Her Universe

The story behind Her Universe is a fairy tale for all girl sci-fi fans. The brand was launched by Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show. If doing the voice for a character in the Star Wars universe isn’t enough to prove her geekiness, Ashley knew that there was a demand for geek girl sci-fi gear too. Girls aren’t the stereotypical fan of sci-fi, and Ashley decided to do something about it. She launched Her Universe to tailor geek garb to women and girls. And I’m very thankful!

I’ve been a huge fan of the revamp of Battlestar Galactica, and have been plowing my way through the 1978 series as well. The universe is delightful, starting with the overall world that contains Twelve Colonies of Kobol. Each colony shares a name with a house of the zodiac (Caprica, Sagittaron, Gemenon, etc.) and each colony has its own unique economic and social structure, but all are connected by the fact that humans survive in all of them, and try to fight or survive the Cylon uprising.

Cylons are pretty awesome, and a take on robots I quite love. They combine the terror of SkyNet – that is, robots who have gone above and beyond humans’ intention, and are growing stronger and smarter than their designers, as well as the charm of Bicentennial Man – in that they believe they are human, have feelings, and some do not know they are Cylons. It’s kind of heart breaking, watching couples in love being torn apart by the discovery that one of them is a Cylon. It begs those basic questions all humans are challenged with. Am I a real person, or am I programmed to have these feelings because I am a Cylon? Do I have free will? Did I ever really love anyone? Where do I go from here? I get chills imagining that horrid reality check of waking up to discover that you’re a Cylon…

I had to rock my Cylon inspired robot necklace, as well as my bright yellow skirt and purse to add a splash of color to this black and white sweatshirt. Perfect for the 50 degree weather we’ve been having in my hometown. I ordered a size Large because I love my sweatshirts big and cozy, but it seems to fit just right. And I know the price tag is Cylon approved at a clearance rate of just $20! I ordered mine on Black Friday, and was gifted a unique Star Wars pin, numbered and signed by Ashley herself. #17 baby! It’s an adorable Darth Vadar wearing a Santa hat, but I am sure I will be rocking it year round.

I’m also having a Halloween party tonight, and partaking in a Zombie Pub Crawl tomorrow. I can’t wait to carve my pumpkin (and bake those pumpkin seeds) – so delicious! I’ve also been craving pumpkin coffee and pumpkin pie.
