Fashion on the Comic Lane!

There are lots and lots of reasons to wear comic-inspired fashion... that's what the Comic-Con's taught us, year after year!:) Seriously now, there's that funky nod to pop art, the fun catchy colors, the never-ending allure of graphic-prints, and they sure make great conversation starters, don't they? Let's channel our inner comic-book junkies, shall we?

And if you haven't had enough, head on over to Studio Jellyfish for a sensory overload of amazing hand-painted pop art/comic-book inspired shoes and handbags. But don't say we didn't warn you!
More and more comic-book related collaborations with fashion and beauty brands are storming the fashion scene! Brands like Phillip Lim, Romance Was Born [Luke Sales & Anna Plunkett ](with Marvel Comics), MAC cosmetics (with Archie Comics), Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin (with Studio Jellyfish), Vivienne Westwood, Reebok (with Marvel Comics), Converse (with DC Comics) Betsey Johnson and Jeffrey Campbell (with Black Milk Clothing) are embracing that great love of our lives - comic books- and we sure are glad to see it happen! 
MAC Archie's Girls (upcoming Makeup Line)-fashionetc

And, while we're here - who says you can't wear more than one comic-inspired piece at a time? We stacked THREE comic-book inspired swank chains and paired with superman-inspired cropped shorts for street style to gush over - at least we're gushing!

Pastell Ring/Bijou-Brigitte~Stud Earrings/topshop
We all (well, almost all of us!) have a superman or batman vintage tee hiding somewhere in our closet-and now is a good time as any to bring in some more old friends, and the perfect time to wear our trip down memory lane, to that place far far away (farther for some than others) where we were Veronica, Betty, Catwoman, Lois Lane-or that girl hoping Spiderman would  save her and Wolverine would carry her far far away! We've all been there - and now we can dress it too! 
What do you guys think? Are you ready to wear your comic-book fix? - or should we lose the geek-factor already?

    2. We understand what you mean, Mauro. A lot of people are also on the fence with this trend - you know there is that teeny tiny line between being a geek and looking uber-stylish that this trend tries to bridge...
