Shop Your Closet: Marvel Print Skirt and Classic Her Universe Shirt

Share This Post

For our latest outfit of the day, we have a couple pieces that I shopped my closet for to put together something new.

I have this classic shirt from Her Universe that I absolutely love! If the shirt ever gives out, I will be taking the collar off and putting it on another shirt. That is how much I love this piece!

With Avengers Campus opening soon at Disneyland, I thought I’d do a little closet shopping to put some different pieces together and make new outfits.

I paired this shirt with my Her Universe Marvel print skirt from Torrid. I added some retro-inspired accessories, like a belt and petticoat, and we were good to go!

Last touch was to add my Chuck Taylors by Converse to keep the retro feel, but with max comfort for walking around a park or con.

Have you ever shopped your closet? If not, then why not give it a go?! It can give some of your favorite pieces new life.

However, if you want to shop this look, just click on the links. Enjoy!

A Day at Touch of Disney

Share This Post

Recently, boyfriend Bill and I got to go to Disney’s California Adventure for their Touch of Disney event.

This was the perfect opportunity to wear my Captain America dress by Her Universe for Disney Dress Shop!

Because of COVID, this poor dress has been waiting patiently in my closet for almost a year to go out and strut.

It was totally worth the wait! As always, this dress is made well, looks great and is super comfy.

I paired it with my slip on Chuck Taylor’s by Converse and an Amazon petticoat. Lipstick is our very own in the “Darcy” shade in the store.

We had an amazing day! Now that the parks are all about to open, I’m looking forward to sharing new and original builds for Galaxy’s Edge and Avenger’s Campus, so stay tuned.

A Much-Needed Trip to Downtown Disney

Share This Post

With COVID cases finally declining, our Governor lifted stay-at-home orders and the ban on outside dining recently.

Boyfriend Bill and I took advantage of that and took a day off to go to Downtown Disney.

In addition, Disney has opened the main street and Hollywood section of Disney’s California Adventure for shopping.

I did make note of the fact that work has resumed on Avenger’s Campus, which makes me more happy than I could ever express. To celebrate that, I wore my Black Widow Disney Dress Shop dress by Her Universe.

I picked up one of the new Nuimos. Nuimos were a huge hit in Japan, and now they have made their way to the USA. They are fully posable with a variety of fashionable looks to choose from. I chose Daisy, cause, duck. I bought her a cute ensemble that makes her super stylish I think! Shop for Nuimos online here. It is also important to note that Her Universe will be designing everyday cosplay looks for Nuimos. So, your toys can bound too! Feel free to use a Team Build Checklist for them as well (wink)! Maybe I should make some tiny Team Build Checklists…

As always, the Disney Dress Shop dresses look amazing and are super comfortable. I love the design on this dress as well. And yes, there are pockets! Get your own dress here.

My beret is from Amazon. Pins are from Wish. Petticoat is also from Amazon. Chucks by Converse.

Happy Shopping and coming up, we are planning an adventure to Knott’s! Stay tuned…

Outfit of the Day: Emperor’s New Groove

Share This Post

Welcome to Kuzcotopia!

I’m so excited to share this new skirt from “The Emperor’s New Groove” by Her Universe for Hot Topic.

“The Emperor’s New Groove” has long been a favorite Disney movie of mine, and I am so glad to see that Hot Topic now has a whole line of clothing to celebrate it.

This skirt is size inclusive, up to a 5xl. It is available at both Her Universe and Hot Topic.

I love the vibrant color and the fabric is a super stretchy and comfy scuba, so it keeps its shape. I also love the length, which is just below the knee. You can turn it into a move vintage look by adding a petticoat.

My shirt is from Torrid. Click on links to buy.

It may not be complete with water slide, but darn it, it’s pretty awesome!

Happy Shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Loki Dress from Her Universe

Share This Post

Our latest outfit of the day is the Loki pin-up dress by Her Universe for The Disney Dress Shop.

faceapp_1579566826256

I love this dress so much for so many reasons, but the stand-out reason is the detailing on the dress itself.

faceapp_1579566196861

The basket weave pattern at the waistline nips in my waist perfectly, without sacrificing any comfort.  The detailing on the skirt is so beautiful.  It is the perfect Loki bound dress.

faceapp_1579565926102

Like all Disney Dress Shop dresses, I love the fit!  It is a very fancy looking dress, but as comfortable as a t-shirt.  And…pockets!

Outfit of the Day: Hogwarts House Robes by Our Universe

Share This Post

Our latest outfit of the day comes from Our Universe, the unisex branch of Her Universe.

They recently began producing pieces for their Harry Potter collection.  They started with dress, then moved on to these great casual cosplay robes/hoodies.

faceapp_1569951443280

The robes are available by clicking on this link.  I linked the Harry Potter page so you can pick the Hogwarts house you want.

The hoodies are super comfy and soft.  They are not heavy and cumbersome like the robes sold in the park, but they do include the crest for your house, the house colors and a pointy hood and most importantly, a wand pocket!

My boyfriend also got one and loves his, so they are great for guys as well.

faceapp_1569902597471

I’m so glad that Her Universe keeps fulfilling the desires of geeks everywhere.  I also applaud calling this line Our Universe rather than, His Universe.  When the company was started, remember this was before women and girl geeks had any choices in geek wear, so for now the name “Her Universe” is very important.  However, I believe that eventually the whole company will be called Our Universe and do away with traditional gendered labels.

The other pieces I have on include a very old Target dress that is no longer available, but I found a similar one here.  My bat belt is from Kreepsville 666.  The button and necklace are from Wish.  The light-up wand is from Amazon.

Happy Shopping!

Love, Kim and Benji

As I take Benji to register for the 8th grade today, in addition to coming to grips with the fact that I have an 8th grader, I thought that I would post some great items for back to school.  Click on the links to buy.

Backpacks

Benji’s favorite band is Panic! At the Disco, so I found a new Panic! backpack from Hot Topic.  The Loki backpack is also from Hot Topic by Loungefly.  Finally, love this new Cap backpack!  Also from Hot Topic.

Woven Button Down Shirts

Benji loves to rock a good woven button down!  Here are a few I found:

The Lion King and Nightmare Before Christmas shirts are from Box Lunch.  The Harry Potter prisoner shirt is from Hot Topic.

Hoodie and Shoes

Her Universe just released a whole Harry Potter line that really knocked it out of the park!  Most items are also available on Hot Topic’s and Torrid’s websites as well.  The prisoner shirt above is also from this collection.

The hoodies are available for each house and…. WAND POCKET!  Click here for shoesClick here for hoodies.

Dresses

Last, but certainly not least, are the dresses.

The Harry Potter dress is available at Her Universe and Hot Topic.  Same for the Spiderman dress.  The plaid dress is from Hot Topic as an online exclusive.

Happy Shopping and have a great new school year!
