We don’t have an official post for today, but wanted to use the opportunity to thank all of you for making this year a great one. When we stared this endeavor, we weren’t quite sure how it would be received, or if there was a place for this kind of blog. But we were confident that someone out there would like what they saw, and are glad to say that there are many of you who do!
And next year is already looking to be full of wonderful geek style. There’s sure to be more jewelry and other subtly geek accessories from The Novo Geek, wonderfully chic and fun new clothing items from Her Universe, and Black Milk has just announced an official license with the Tolkien estate to release new Middle-Earth themed pieces in the new year.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being a part of our small corner of the web, and we can’t wait to share even more with you next year!
While shoes, wallets, jewelry, etc. are the most common types of items to decoupage, you can pretty much decoupage anything you set your mind to. For this DIY I set my sights on decoupaging a home decor item, a decorative plate charger.
You’ve probably seen them on dinner tables before, but might not have known what they were called. They’re large, purely decorative, plates used to dress up a table for special events, parties, holidays, etc. And they are a perfect way to geek up the dinner table in a subtle but fun way.
Just in time for you to enter the new year in truly fashionable geek style, The Novo Geek has released the first of hopefully many more beautifully designed geek-themed jewelry, starting with a pair of earrings and a necklace set inspired by Battlestar Galactica.
As we’ve discussed before, adding a little something to your nails is a great way to show off your geeky pride. While we’ve covered nail polish in a few posts, like this one or this one, we haven’t taken a good look at what’s available in terms of nail decals or fake nail sets. What’s great about these is they’re pretty quick to apply and an easy way to dress up your outfit. Check out our finds below!
We’ll start off with two designs currently available at Thinkgeek. Click photos for direct product links.
It’s Christmas Eve! If you’re scrambling for last minute gifts for the geek(s) in your life, don’t panic, we’ve got your back.
Check out your local Hot Topic for a plethora of great gift options that are sure to bring a smile on Christmas day.
For those of you celebrating Christmas, I hope you’ve gotten all your shopping done already, and for those who haven’t finished, good luck this weekend! What I’m sure most of you will be doing those is wrapping those gifts, and whether they’re geeky or not, you can’t still add a little touch of geek in the wrapping job. So if you’re feeling crafty, here’s a way to make gift bows a little more special!
One of my favorite way to make my outfits a little more geek chic is including a great piece of jewelry. It could be unstated or the focus of the outfit. While many of these may not be available in time for the holidays, you might be able to snag a piece or two in time to add to your New Years outfit. Or, you could just wear them everyday too!
Hot Topic’s merchandise changes fairly frequently, but they have some fun pieces right now at very reasonable prices.

Following up last week’s DIY on how to make a geeky Christmas stocking, here’s our DIY on how to make a geeky Christmas tree skirt!
Tree skirts are a wonderful piece of holiday decor you might overlook when considering decorations to geek up.
This is our last Stunning Style for a few weeks while everyone enjoys the holiday and new year, and while we gather more looks to share with you!
With that in mind, this week’s look is a very simple, no muss, no fuss way to add a hint of geek chic to an otherwise normal outfit.
