Nerd Alert

For a while now, I have had a dream: to come in contact with (and/or stalk) Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and essentially the whole Enterprise crew.

The closest I have come to this dream was at Philadelphia ComicCon a year ago. I didn't have the money to pay for a photograph or brief meet and greet with William Shatner, so instead, I peeked at him intensely from behind a curtain like the creeper that I truly am.

The second nearest wish fulfillment came when I ALMOST attended a party hosted by Leonard Nimoy in NYC to celebrate his friend's book release. I was only invited because I was interning at the same publishing house his friend happened to be working with. But because I am the most unlucky human in the world, just a week before the party my program came to an end. Depression consumed me.

So you'll understand when I found out that I could have Spock and Kirk's faces plastered on a 1950's inspired dress, I had to jump at the opportunity. Literally, I think I actually jumped in ecstasy when I discovered Polka Dot Polly, and the incredible "Special Order Fabric" section. From Star Wars to SpongeBob to Superman to yes, Star Trek, PDP has the best flippin fabrics I have seen in a long time -- all made into dazzling vintage inspired dresses, tops and skirts. The mother/daughter team of Polka Dot Polly works with your unique measurements, so this is absolutely perfect for any plus-size gal looking for vintage dresses but finding the task a difficult one!

This dress is the best thing I have ever owned. It's better than my iPod, better than my Netflix subscription, even better than my original Lord of the Rings box set. When I received it, I wore it for three straight days, forgetting the rules of hygiene and all social norms. Trekkies, you will understand why.

I decided to be extra nerdy and use the PicStitch app for photo editing. Normally, I'm not big on photo editing but these effects are just super cool.
