We Can be (Valentino) HEROes

A few weeks ago, you learned about the superhero splendor that is the Valentino X Goop “Wonder Woman” collection. A capsule that was only a small part of a larger collection set to be released in April. Well, here now  is yet another glimpse of how Valentino plans to superpower your wardrobe. Continue reading

#ArtinMotion: Selly’s UK Trip

TRAVEL AND STYLE HIGHLIGHTS FEATURING REDBUBBLE!

Just before I left for my trip, I packed some choice accessories. It seems I’m not the greatest at packing light (I am so, so sorry to all my hosts while abroad, for my stupidly heavy suitcase.) But the pieces with the biggest impact to my overall look each day, were actually the lightest. That’s all thanks to the fine people at Redbubble and their gorgeous Art in Motion campaign: a new womens street style line, showcasing the work of some truly brilliant independent artists.

When I look back at one of my earliest blog posts featuring Redbubble, I feel that both this blog and the company have evolved by leaps and bounds, this latest collection being a perfect example of that.

Redbubble reached out to me about showcasing some pieces from their new collection. I saw my epic trip as the perfect opportunity to do just that. I wouldn’t blog about something I didn’t love, and it was love at first sight when I saw these pieces. The “Wings” butterfly pouch by Cassia and “Peacocks” scarf by Andrea Lauren–in addition to being stunning— really resonated with me emotionally.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Marc Jacobs

I got to pre shop the fabulously geeky MBMJ Resort 2015 collection

Upon exiting the elevator onto the party floor last November, I felt as though I had all but left SoHo behind and had stepped onto the deck of Starship Marc. My name was checked off a list, my coat was taken, and I was promptly handed a can of champagne (you gotta ration that stuff in space, you know?). I’d traded in the chilly Manhattan air for a warm welcome into a chic gathering orbiting in the thermosphere  above our little city.

Jeremy Scott: Fashion industry rebel bad boy? Yes. Bat shit cray Genius? Possibly.

Scott’s great contribution to fashion is his ability to poke fun at fashion, with a skilled hand, an eye for proportion, a knack for accessories, an understanding of marketing and merchandising… it’s this combination of talent and vision that excites us, appalls us and makes us want to buy things while questioning his intentions (are you in fact making fun of us, the consumer? ) and our own sense of humor (maybe we need to stop criticizing his work and lighten up and just enjoy?)

McQ Alexander McQueen X Manga

Forward to Fall

Fall is just around the corner, you guys. We’ve yet to hit a 100 degree day in NYC, but while we’re out and about getting a golden glow, the fall collections are starting to arrive in stores.  Here’s the first of a few favorites in this mini series to get you excited for the approaching season.

Not since Paradise Kiss have I witnessed a fusion of luxury fashion and manga that sent my heart soaring, and indulged my every fashion obsessed geek girl’s dream. The only other book to ever do that was Sina Grace’s Not My Bag. Which was in fact largely a comic book ode  to Alexander McQueen (so obviously a favorite of mine) and, note to self: It’s high time I review that for you here!  In the meantime… Continue reading

Art + Fashion: Dr. Martens X Hieronymus Bosch

Working for a company like Dr. Martens comes with some special perks: like getting my hands on exclusive, limited styles before anyone else. It’s a blogger’s dream. But when I found out my dear friend Rachel was not only coveting these particular boots herself, but was also an art history major (!!!), I knew she was the perfect person to pen this post.

———————————————————————————————-

Heaven Above and Hell Below. Stomp the streets with alchemical allegories and unreal demons with Dr. Marten’s Bosch printed footwear and bags.

There’s pretty much no outfit that isn’t improved with the addition of a Dr. Marten. When the boot is sporting a bad ass painting – well it’s just that much better.

Golden Ideas! Last Minute Additions to Your Doctor Who Outfit

23 TARDIS Blue Bags

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, here’s the first in a mini series of posts to help you ready your wardrobe for the 23rd

One of the hottest trends this season is one that is very near and dear to my heart. It’s not only geeky, but it’s been a dream of mine since this blog’s inception. It was even my original tagline. Before Fashion + Geekery was “for the fashion forward fan girl”– which it always has been– I launched this blog, “for the girl who’s set her sights on a TARDIS blue PRADA bag.” It’s an idea that symbolizes my ideal union between luxury and geek culture, and one that still embodies my personal brand.

Now, this idea has become a fully fledged must-have: the TARDIS blue bag.

(Note: thought the BBC may have their approved TARDIS pantone color, we know it’s gone through a few paint jobs over the years. )

Here are 23 pieces to set your sights on. (and sneak snacks into the theater with)

What’s your favorite?
