Outfit of the Day: Silicon Valley Comic Con

I've never been to San Diego but I'm glad that Comic Con finally made it up to the Bay Area! 


I've been going to comic cons ever since my dad first took me to my first one so many years ago either when I was in middle school or high school. It wasn't the big one, the San Diego Comic Con, but instead a smaller one called Wondercon... It didn't matter much to me though. It was all ours and that was all that I cared about. But then, mysteriously, in 2011 Wondercon packed up and moved down south to Anaheim. They said they would be back but they never did come back. So last year when Steve Wozniak announce he was going to start another comic convention in our area, Silicon Valley Comic Con, my husband and I marked our calendars and counted down the days! I'm so happy there's a comic con in our area again. And while they have a few kinks to work out before the next one (not completely unexpected I suppose since this was only the first year they've had it) I'm definitely looking forward to going again, making it again an annual tradition.

Outfit of the Day: 

I knew I had been saving this dress for just the perfect occasion! I decided the Trashy Diva Sci Fi Rockets dress would be the perfect dress for the first ever Silicon Valley Comic Con, as I knew Silicon Valley Comic Con would also be the perfect place to wear my Trashy Diva Sci Fi Rockets dress for the first time ever! This is a two piece ensemble... the Trixie dress and a bolero. I paired this with red Ecco flats I got earlier last year on ebay. For a finishing touch I also paired this with a pair of golden ball stud earrings to go with the golden yellow rockets in the print. I have a lot of fun memories from this day and love that this dress will always be associated with Silicon Valley Comic Con's first convention in my mind.

  7. There really aren't words enough for how awesome it is that you and your cat have matching outfits. That made me smile ear-to-ear and is seriously one of the most awesome outfit related things I've ever seen in all the years I've been fashion blogging.

    Oodles of hugs to you both!
