Tribble

I’m a (not so) secret geek. I grew up watching the original Star Trek episodes and I remember the excitement when the Next Generation series started. Of the old series, some of my favorite episodes were The Devil in the Dark (my sisters and I referred to the Horta as the “Pizza Monster”) and The Trouble with Tribbles. I received this fur pouf ring through a swap and it strongly resembles a mini-Tribble. I had better be careful not to feed it.


Jacket, Cami. Sweater, Merona. Belt, Target. Skirt, Mossimo. Tights, Hue. High-heeled oxfords, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Scarf, Cappel’s. Ring, swap. Hat (pictured below), Charlotte Russe.


I was actually named after a Star Trek character: Lt. Mira Romaine, from The Lights of Zetar episode. I suppose it doesn’t bode well that she was possessed by aliens.

Yay Tribbles! I grew up a Trekkie as well...

I love the oxfords - I might have to get something similar for my fall wardrobe this year.

The Trek connection makes you that much cooler.

Great outfit...it's almost all Target, yet it doesn't look it at all. :)

That tribble episode was always the one that non-Trekkies liked best!

Love the ring. I got a similar one for Christmas last year that my best friend bought on Etsy.

Love the shoes!

Completely awesome that you're named after Star Trek. I'm also named after a TV character -- Audra Barkley from Big Valley.

I love that picture of your ring, it's so atmospheric. I've never seen Star Trek but this "Tribble" intrigues me. I just might have to check it out...

I love the outfit! I have been seeing a couple of girls around my school wearing this colour combination this week, and the first thing I thought of was that they read your blog.

We called that the pizza monster too! I grew up watching the old series, and was a devoted NG fan.

Love this outfit - the velvet blazer really pulls all the colours together beautifully. I think this is my favourite.
