Shop Snap: Ikea Pixel Creature Wall Decals

May 29, 2012


It seems I go to Ikea alot. It also seems that they generally have at least one home fashion item with nerdy leanings. Today’s find is a set of wall decals which resemble old school arcade characters. Also included are what seem to be score pop ups (the +700 you can see).  I could see […]

Marvel Comics Inspired Jewelry from 1928 (And its Kinda Cheap!)

May 24, 2012


If you’ve ever looked around the costume jewelry at a department store, you’ve probably seen 1928 jewelry. As a fashion major, I knew of the brand. But I never expected it to cross my path again, in a geeky way. 1928 now has a Marvel Comics line. The heroes represented are somewhat limited – Thor, […]

Vinyl Thoughts 2 – This Just In: No Need to Lose the Glasses to Find a Man

May 23, 2012

May 20, 2012


Her quote when I asked to take her picture: “But I’m not in costume..” “That’s why I want it,” I said.

Jump From Paper Handbag, Seen IRL!

March 25, 2012


I mentioned Jump From Paper handbags in a blog awhile back after seeing them on Fashion Tips From Comic Strips. The other day, I happened to see one, in real life, at the post office. The owner was nice enough to let me take her photo. I must say, the bags are as mind boggling […]

Blue Retro Mario Print Cocktail Dress at Vinyl Thoughts: The Next Level

March 22, 2012


This is one of the most unique and well done outfits I saw at Vinyl Thoughts, and in fact, its one of the coolest fashion uses of a video game theme I’ve ever seen. The print is dramatically Mario, but the cut and construction of the dress stands on its own. If it did not […]
