Hot Topic

My #nerdvember Master Post

This year, I participated in Set To Stunning‘s #nerdvember contest. Each day, during the month of November, participants can earn an entry into the contest by posting a nerdy inspired outfit of the day. Those who entered 1-10 days qualify for Tier 1 : The Sidekick. 11-20 Days, Tier 2 : The Vigilante. 21-29 Days, Tier 3 : The Hero and All 30 Days is Tier  4 : The Superhero. I jumped in on the 9th day of the contest so posting everyday for the rest of the month, I’ll qualify for the “Hero”. (For full contest info and rules, check out the official post.)

I had so much fun with this photo challenge and even made some pretty rad instagram friends along the way. (For more information on each of these looks, check out my instagram @gingerkate )

Geeky Chic Nostalgia

I’ve been having so much fun participating in Set To Stunning‘s #nerdvember. The nerdy-themed outfit of the day Instagram contest got me thinking about two of my favorite chic geek outfits from the past.

First up is the outfit I wore for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special: my Her Universe Red Dalek Dress with my black & white cardigan and some villain inspired jewelry including my Adipose earrings and a [Max] Capricorn necklace.




The other, is the first time I wore my Sherlock ‘Bored’ A-Line Dress from Gold Bubble Clothing. My yellow Converse All Stars and yellow belt looked smashing with the yellow smiley face and my Sherlock Holmes “The game is afoot – Sir Conan Arthur Doyle” necklace from Hot Topic completed the look. (I even got props via Instgram & Twitter from Gold Bubble Clothing’s Creative Director (cosplayer and Set To Stunning Blogger), Victoria Schmidt!)

Potter & Dropkick & Shimmer, Oh my!

Today I went out to pick up a new bottle of Victoria’s Secret – Very Sexy – Shimmer Mist since my bottle runneth-dry. It’s a MUST in my perfume collection at all times. Ordinarily $15.00, I got it on sale for $10.00! Yayy!!

While at the mall, I stopped in at Hot Topic at my sister’s suggestion. They were having 50% off all clearance and a ton of other sales. I figured I could pick up a few awesome graphic t’s for way below average price, so I went in the one store I hate more than any other… not because it doesn’t have awesome shit from time to time… not because it’s always packed with pre-teen wannabe rebel anarchists… and not because of the shitty music they choose to play… but because Hot Topic is the established anti-establishment and that bothers me.

Back to those t-shirts! I got two soccer style t’s… and they’re fantastic! The first is (yet another) Harry Potter shirt!! Hooty-Hooooooo! The other is one of my favorite bands, Dropkick Murphys!! L♥VE those boys (I met them… they signed my “Irish Ass”… literally.)

The back of the Gryffindor T says: POTTER!!!! (bitches!)

A nice, cheap fix for my shopping addiction! (I’m so broke right now, it’s ridiculous!)
