Geek Girl Reprised (OOTD)

It's that time of year again! Er...besides the Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-sale (*ahem* which I've been checking out daily...), that is. It's San Diego Comic-Con time!!!

I missed the first day because I had to work, but I'll be heading out there today after a stop at Nordy's to help some friends and the DH with their shopping. When I tell people I'm going to Comic-Con, inevitably I get the question, "Are you dressing up in a costume?"

Not as such...


Jacket: Kenna T Leather Biker Jacket, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (not available online, check your local stores or call 1.888.282.6060. Sku# 429544238098. Similar here, here, and here)
Shirt: Wonder Woman Tee (similar here, here, and here)
Skirt: Anthropologie Apothecary Skirt (similar here, here, and here)
Shoes: Lanvin Ankle Strap Sandal (similar here and here)




I'm not actually wearing this jacket today. It's way too hot for it. I did want to share it with you, though, as it's one of the items I grabbed at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it's not available online. Kelly, my Nordstrom Personal Stylist saw it and immediately grabbed it for me to try on during my appointment (I love her).




I am, however, a Wonder Woman, as we all (of the female persuasion, anyway) are. Yesterday, someone asked me if I believed him when he told me I'm an astonishing human being. I can honestly say that at that moment, I did not. I can also report that today, I'm working on owning it.

Hoping you all have a fantastic Friday and that you through every second of it, you claim the greatness that blooms in you! 

xoxo,
Carol

  1. I've never been to Comic-Con, but I have been to its second cousin Otakon twice--so much fun!

    1. Oh, I've been to Otakon twice too! Though, both times were several years ago, when I was still living on the east coast. You'll have to make it out to Comic-Con one of these days. It's like Otakon on crack.

  5. So cool! I love the WW tee with that skirt, really brings out the reds in both pieces. Plus Wonder Woman is my hero, so I give this outfit 2 thumbs up!

  6. You look adorable Carol :) I'm at Comic-Con too this year! I arose 6 so I could get to see the Community panel, and then I went to a bunch of fiction panels the rest of the day. Which things did you get around to seeing?

  9. I'm jealous that you are going to comic con. Every year I say I'll go but the tickets are always sold out before I can buy them. Hopefully next year. I have been to Fanime and Anime Expo and I love them. I used to dressed up for the convention but I would mostly not for Comic Con.
