Once upon a time, I was like you probably are: full of big dreams of pretty planners, memories scrapped and in books, home decked out in holiday finest, year-round and way ahead of the day. If that sounds like you, you’re in the right place!
You can get all of that done, I promise! In fact, you can have all that and then some, making your dream day come true.
Hi, I’m Carolee and it’s my mission to help us all craft the pretty lifestyle and home of our dreams. I want to see you use those stickers, that good china, whatever and make your life sparkling because I believe that whoever you are, it’s not that hard to add in those little bits of things that make you smile!
What is Sweet Geek Chic?
The tagline here at finn & roo when we started out was “for your sparkling life” which is pretty appropriate for the type of stuff I enjoy and create. For the longest time, it was well known that pink was my favorite color (though it’s now probably purple!) I was one of those late 90s/early 00s happy hardcore raver kids. Even when I was a “goth”, I was still more in the glitter goth vein. Eventually, I stumbled upon Japanese fashion and dabbled in ganguro and lolita. Lolita is still one of my loves, though I don’t dress in it anymore, though I do have two well-stocked Pinterest boards dedicated to it!
Basically, throughout my life, I’ve wandered stylistically but I’ve found certain things repeating over and over and over again. Or they’re things that never really left, they just may have gone on walkabout for a bit. As I’ve worked more creatively, adding papercrafting to my life, I’ve finally been able to see my style made physical on a consistent basis and in doing so, it kind of smacked me over the head! To break it down:
SWEET – Both in color and motif. This includes pastel tones, cute animals, floral prints and soft fabrics.
GEEK – Both in the traditional sense (enjoying scifi, anime and comics) and in a stylistic sense (adding in librarian or geeky items like horn-rimmed glasses or cardigan sweaters)
CHIC – Trying to mix styles can get messy, so always making sure it comes together well and look stylish, not dweeby!
Put it together and you get the tagline and stylistic direction for this site! To get a visual idea, check out the Fashion Friday posts!
