Day 20: Pikachu Inspiration: My coworker Alex has challenged me to do a Nerdvember of Pikachu or Sailor Moon. I have nothing to do Sailor Moon. Components: Black tank. 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...

The-Big-Bang-Theory-Soft-Kitty-Plush_17035-l

Inspiration: It was my birthday so I lounged around the house all day. Until I had to get dressed to get my seafood on for dinner. Soft Kitty seemed an appropriate choice. Component: Soft Kitty t-shirt. Gray knit sweater. And yes, I do own quite a bit of Soft Kitty items. I’m just a wee bit obsessed. #Nerdvember Day 16: Celebrating #thegreat38 in my favorite shirt. #settostunning #softkitty #bigbangtheory #beerotter A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 8:38pm PST Challenges: Leaving the house.

Inspiration: It’s half way point through Nerdvember. And a Saturday. I wasn’t wearing anything nerdy all day until we had to go to our friend’s birthday gathering. So, voila. Components: Star Wars “Save the Tree” hoodie and, of course, my Star Wars Vans. #Nerdvember Day 15: #StarWars marks the half way point. #settostunning A photo posted by oakley boren (@oakmonster) on Nov 11, 2014 at 6:36pm PST Comment from Muggles: I met a fellow USC alum at the shindig. He complimented the shoes. I told him that I wear these to the games because of George Lucas. He kind of...
