Daily Threads: Nerdy Chic + Giveaway



Cape: Liz Claiborne c/o JCPenney, Top: c/o Karen Kane, Riding Pants: NY&Co (old) similar

This is my version of nerdy chic. I know capes are trendy right, but they also give me a slight nerdy vibe - I think maybe because I link superheros, comic books, and capes. Except this one I'm wearing doesn't help me fly. At all. Trust me. Anyway, I'm really loving them! Add some glasses and we're good to go - see y'all at Comic-Con!

 Moving on, in the spirit of being a nerd at heart, I have a fun gadget giveaway for you all just in time for the holidays! JCPenney has launched a new holiday boutique called WRAPT and one of the lines is X-Treme Geek - which carries several (awesome) gadgets to please your inner nerd. It's a perfect place to shop for those geek-tech lovers you know!

One of you will be getting one of the coolest gadgets they offer - for free! The Mini Fridge! How awesome is that? A mini fridge for a single can of soda that connects to your computer. I really wish I had one of these in college. Take it to the library or to those long 3hr classes I'd have once a week and I'd never have to worry about my drink getting warm. 


Oh my, it's so cute!


All you have to do is visit the X-Treme Geek shop and comment below with the coolest nerdy gadget you've seen lately. Winner will be selected next week!

I'm so into bow tie shirts at the moment, so I'm obviously in love with your look! Very polished and chic, capes are definitely the thing right now, cute chevron pattern!

Oh my gosh, that is the neatest thing ever! My drink always gets warm sitting at my desk. The X-treme Geek Water Resistant Ipod Boombox would be perfect to bring on the boat or to the beach! That cape is super cute, too, by the way. :)

That mini fridge would be perfect for my nerdy boyfriend!! He obsessed with little things like this, and I am always asking him if he needs something to drink while he studies! Ah, my fingers crossed!!

Lately he purchased a 'retro' phone headset, so, just the headset part of an old land line phone, that plugs into his iPhone, so when having long conversations, he can talk on a 'normal' phone, and its easier to hold, ect I just think it's ridiculous! Haha

Gotta love our nerds...I have to check out this website for his Christmas gift!
