Force Friday has come and gone, and now that the dust has settled, it’s the perfect time to highlight some of the best fashion-related items that were recently released/soon to be released. From accessories and footwear, jewelry and clothing, we are surely in the Age of the Geek, and Star Wars is leading the charge!
Here in L.A. it’s been a constant stream of Hello Kitty related events celebrating 40 years of Sanrio’s adorable little kitty…girl…who isn’t a cat but totally is. Hello Kitty Con is just around the corner and Jeffrey Campbell has just released a new, limited edition collection that seem like definite must-haves to sport there – Hello Kitty X Jeffrey Campbell!
With George R. R. Martin’s phenomenal fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, turned hit HBO show now in its epic fourth season, Game of Thrones, it’s never been a better time to be a fan of the world of Westeros! Etsy is always a great source to find unique and wonderfully inspired fanmade creations, so it seemed about time we brought you a second Etsy Picks of The Week highlighting some of our favorite Game of Thrones related products. From perfume to pillows, soap to shoes, there’s bound to be something you can’t wait to get your hands on!

NailSnaps, a brilliant new app that will allow you to turn your pictures into custom nail polish stickers, has the potential to be a fantastic tool for cosplayers and fashionable geeks alike. Currently a Kickstarter project that ends tomorrow, it’s less than $1k shy of its goal!
Check after the cut to see some of the fun I had using their nail template to experiment with the possibilities that could be had once this project is live. I love the idea of being able to highlight parts of my favorite costumes or fandoms and featuring them on my nails!
Spencer’s, what I like to think of as the adult, more novelty-driven, version of Hot Topic, may be a shop you overlook, but these days it’s brimming with some really choice geek wares. I’m especially loving their wallet and clutch selections!
There were so many things to highlight that I’ve split this up into two posts today, one focusing on accessories, and the other on clothing – so be sure to check out the other post a little later.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to refresh your look is through accessories, and Hot Topic is often my go to when I’m looking to nab a few things at a very reasonable price. Given that they update their inventory often, it’s usually easy to find something that’s new and maybe a bit different. Here are just some of the things I’ve rounded up from their current selection.
