Over the last 13 years, I have teased Sable Crow MERCILESSLY about being a Trekkie. Frankly, he asks for it by divulging that he owns Star Trek commemorative plates. Or telling me he can't hang out because he is putting together a Starship Enterprise model all weekend!!! In my book that's as bad as walking around in pointy ears, speaking Klingon. F.
So you can imagine how hard it was for me to admit that I actually wanted to see the new Star Trek movie. Look, I am a huge JJ Abrams fan and love me the possibilities of a prequel.
Plus, the film is clearly being marketed to draw in a whole new audience. An - ahem - hipper audience.
Not that you can't be hip and love Star Trek. Witness the gaggle of pretty gays we watched the movie with tonight.
But let's face it most of the rabid fans out on opening weekend were, um, special.
And I guess now I am one of them, part of the long living and prospering kind. LOVED the movie. Very entertaining and self-effacing. No wonder Sable Crow watched it opening night, again tonight and will likely go again this weekend. What.a. nerd.

Dressing for a cultural phenomenon always creates quite the conundrum.
I knew I shouldn't try tooooo hard given the crowd converging on the Cinerama dome tonight. Decided not to bother straightening my hair.
But I had to make some effort since I'd be sitting next to hot boys like my new favorite, Mr. Luscious Lawyer. Yum-MY!
But don't let that pretty face fool you. He is a hard core Star Trek three headed monster. He was not pleased by certain plot twists that "disturbed the space time continuum." HAHAHAH! At least his take on a Starfleet uniform was cooler than the crazy talk coming out of his mouth.
Was leaning toward a gray dress this morning.
Just felt right for a Gossip Girl Gone Trekker.
But ultimately decided to go with a shot of color
And a slightly futuristic shape.
Bought this Twelve by Twelve skirt for Mexico. Had planned to wear it for the Robotos rehearsal dinner. With a great tan. And a flower in my hair. Wah.
Ended up being the perfect choice for tonight since I matched my favorite Vulcan. Love!
Loving the odd shape of this skirt with the high waist and major pouf.
It's admittedly a bit tricky to wear when you aren't stick thin but great for creating a waist which is always critical for me.
Think it will look even more flattering and tres Nini with heels.
But today I kept things easy and casual with flat gladiators.
Good balance to the shortness of the skirt.
Here are more minis I am currently stalking on Net-a-Porter.
Phillip Lim $355
Thread Social - $315
Ungaro - $3,330. U is for Ugh. Much prefer mine for under $30.
