May the 4th Be Fashionable!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

May_The_4th_logo_BLK_BGIt’s the start of a brand new month; May is finally here!  There’s plenty to look forward to, and for all of you hardcore Star Wars fans out there you know what’s coming up.  This Saturday is the 4th, as in “May the 4th be with you,” the time for us all to let our Star Wars love shine.  With this unofficial holiday right around the corner I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about a very special fashion line that our gorgeous editor brought to my attention: Nerd Alert Designs!

imageNerd Alert Designs seems to be what happens when four brilliant girls combine a passion for fashion with nerdy pop culture references. They used to sell their unique designs on Etsy, but recently the girls have announced “great big things are coming” for their designs.  They’ve gotten their own domain name, and back in April they posted on the new website that their designs will soon be available on both that site and their Facebook page.

Going through pictures of the girls’ past designs it look likes they range from almost cosplay to outfits you’d be comfortable wearing in your daily life.  While there’s nothing wrong with an adorable cosplay outfit like the cute, furry Ewok ensemble, I’m a fan of their more casual pieces.  For example, this Darth Vader shirt has just the right amount of flair to bring character to what could have been an otherwise ordinary outfit.  If you can’t get one of their designs in time for this year’s “May the 4th” festivities, I’m sure whatever you like with the Star Wars theme would get plenty of use before next year comes around.swewokku-medium

Star Wars isn’t the only reference you’ll see in the assortment of items they make.  They’ve got clever designs from anime, cult shows/movies, childhood favorites, and recent blockbusters, a little something for everyone no matter what type of nerd you are.  As a big Doctor Who fan I’m absolutely in love with the Tardis scarf that they made.  While all of the designs I’ve seen from Nerd Alert Designs are for women, there are a few accessories that guys could probably get away with and not worry about judgment from anyone close-minded.  Personally, I can’t wait to see what designs they bring out next.

Stole this hat from my editor!!!

Editor’s Note: They have the CUTEST AT-AT “poodle” skirt that I plan on purchasing as soon as the new website is up.  And maybe a pencil skirt.  And I need a Star Wars dress.  Maybe I should just ask them to be my personal stylists.
