When you rely on making stuff to compliment your geeky outfits, finding out that new licensed fabric has been released at Joann is a very exciting thing! I came across some of these designs a month ago, but they recently got a new license, Star Trek! So for those of you who love making geeky stuff like we do, here are some of the new fabrics you can find at your local (or online) Joann fabric.

Add a Little Geeky Glitz or Shine to any Outfit
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.

Deck the Halls with these Geeky Decorations
With just a few days until Thanksgiving, my favorite time of the year is quickly approaching, Christmas decorating! I usually try to hold off until after Thanksgiving, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to list some of the great geeky holiday finds I’ve come across. Check them out below!
The place with probably the best all around decor is Thinkgeek. Ranging from wreaths to stockings, here are a few of my favorite picks.
Stunning Style: Look #18
While our third Stunning Style is a perfect look for a day like Halloween, today’s style shows a different ensemble you can pull together around the same top that’s a bit more casual, but still full of geeky style.
Geek Chic Finds of the Week3
When posting our Stunning Style outfits, often I find that some of the items we’ve posted are often no longer available. That being the case, I wanted to post a collection of my recent finds both in store and online so that you have the opportunity to grab things while they’re still around. Some of these will definitely make an appearance in future Stunning Styles! (A special thanks to my husband for being the hand model in many of these photos)
Set to Stunning @ Comikaze Expo1
If you were near the convention center in LA this weekend, you may have noticed a large comic convention taking place, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. Despite the long lines and extreme heat, we did manage to spy some great geek chic outfits and merchandise around the exhibit hall.
Geek Chic Finds of the Week: Kohl’s2
Even though it’s been a few years since I’ve been in school, I still love back to school sales since that often means awesome clothes or home items for great prices! Luckily for me, a friend of mine contacted me to let me know about a sale on graphic tees going on at Kohl’s. I decided to go check it out and see what I could find.
When I walked over toward the graphic tee section, I was immediately greeted by this display. I love how they paired this superman tee with a fitted jacket and red pants.
DIY Friday: Decoupage Wallet9
I’m always rummaging around the discounted/clearance section of stores like Target to see what great items might be found that would be great to use for crafts. I picked up these wallets a few weeks ago knowing they’d be great for a future decoupage project, and finally got around to doing something with them this week.
You could decoupage multiple, smaller images onto these wallets for more of a collage look, but they were a perfect size to allow for a single, large image to be decoupaged onto them, so it’s almost like having a mini comic book or art print for a wallet!
Take a Dip in These Geek Chic Swimsuits7
Having lived by the coasts most of my life, Memorial Day weekend always signifies the start of summer. Even better, it means I get to start buying cute swimwear. I scoured the internet to find the best licensed and handmade geek chic swimwear out there.
First comes this collection of DC comic swimsuits from Super Hero Stuff. They carry bikinis, monokinis, and board shorts featuring Super Girl, Wonder Woman, and Batman.
Geek Chic Finds of the Week!4
Every now and again we’d like to share items we happen to find during shopping excursions, so here’s the first! As I mention in our About page, I love to shop, and last week was no exception – I came across some great finds at Walmart, Target, and Hot Topic.
