fhloston

Inspiration: Well, I’ve got this t-shirt thinking that anyone who’s ever seen The Fifth Element would get it right away. Not so much, actually. Component: The Fhloston Paradise t-shirt I bought from ThinkGeek eons ago. And a napping cat…who is not ours. #Nerdvember Day 23: Living in Fhloston Paradise featuring #ClarkKent #NotOurCat. #settostunning #fifthelement A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 1:28pm PST Challenge: Deciding on what to do with the selfie. Napping Clark provided a solution. Comments from Muggles: Nothing. But I got a great comment from BKK Greg though: he thought “Fhloston” was...

Nerdvember Day 22: Party Avengers

Inspiration:  I originally planned to wear my Gold Bubble Sherlock’s wallpaper dress to my friend’s party tonight. But due to my USC superstition of not wearing bra during USC/fucla game, I had to change the idea around. A bra-less flat chest in a tight polyester dress is bad news for everyone. Components: Her Universe Men of Marvel dress which I bought from Hot Topic. S.H.I.E.L.D earrings from Optimystical Studios. Yellow cardigan from Mod Cloth. Boots. #Nerdvember Day 22: #Avengers for a dinner party. #settostunning A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:03pm PST Challenges: Remembering...

Khaki. Yellow cardigan from Mod Cloth. Red Scarf from Victoria’s Secrets. A pair of faux victory rolls (for the ears). #Nerdvember Day 20: @ajaaacks requested #Pikachu. I obliged. #settostunning #pokemon A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:37am PST Challenges: Finding the right pants. Jeans did not work well with the top. But somehow Khakis pulled it all together. Phew! Comment from Muggles: Alex approved! Day 21:...

Nerdvember Day 19: Doctor Who

13who

Inspiration: For my birthday, my friend Hazel got me this Doctor Who’s “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey” pendant. I told her that I don’t really have anything in my closet to casually cosplay the Tenth Doctor, although I can easily do Ninth and Eleventh. “Why don’t you be all of the Doctors at once?” I couldn’t do all 13 but, hey, I can do all of the new Doctors (not counting the War Doctor). Components: Purple v-neck for Nine. Wibbly Wobbly pendant for Ten. Tweed jacket for Eleven. And a hint of red socks peeking from my boots for Twelve. Just...

Nerdvember Day 18: Ratatouille

Ratatouille

Inspiration: I was looking for something to wear next when I spotted the skirt and thought, “Well, I don’t think there’s anything I can do for November with a Paris print skirt…wait…WAIT!!!!” Components: You can’t see it but I have a pale pink tank top underneath the gray cardigan from Mod Cloth, so pink and gray for Remy. And of course, the now-famous Paris skirt from Stella Boutique in Bangkok. #Nerdvember Day 18: A rat in Paris. #Ratatouille #settostunning #disneybound Paris print skirt from my friend’s shop, @birdstella Stella, in Bangkok.

But unfortunately, my little jacket will not hold up against the office arctic blast. Comments from Muggles: The necklace is ALWAYS a hit. However, to my surprise, I didn’t get...
