Geeky Garments - Black Milk Clothing


I always love geek themed fashion (hence the name of this blog)! Combining nerdy culture with something super stylish is a sure way to look fabulous. So, when I found out about the enormous range of geeky garments Black Milk Clothing had to offer I knew I would have to check them out.


I spotted a few of Black Milk's fabulous fashion items on my Instagram feed and instantly fell in love. When I visited their online store I found some amazing items to fit a wide range of fandoms, from Harry Potter and Doctor Who to DC and Marvel.

The clothes they sell are quite expensive, but I loved the range of designs and had heard so many positive comments about the quality of their products, so of course I was tempted into trying it out.

I settled on this awesome Killing Joke bomber. I love the Batman comic strip on the front of the jacket but the highlight is the amazing Joker design on the back. I absolutely adore this jacket. It may be over the top and outlandish, but it provides a fabulously fashionable opportunity to express your inner geek.

I also bought these gorgeous tights to go with the jacket. I adore these tights as they look like cute but grungy thigh high socks. They can add an extra bit of edgy style to any outfit and definitely make a winning combination with the Killing Joke bomber jacket. 

As I said before the prices for Black Milk's products are high and if you live in the UK like me you have to dish out a bit extra for shipping. But despite the price tag, I am thrilled with my purchases from Black Milk Clothing and think it is a perfect brand for anyone looking for some super stylish geeky garments


Let me know in the comments what you think about this brand. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Goodbye 2016

Oh my goodness it's 2017 already! I can't believe it. It is definitely time for an update. The past year has flown by, but despite this I feel that a lot has happened and it's important to reflect on it.

Hello 2017
For many people 2016 was a bad year, there were numerous shock outcomes in politics around the world and we lost so many beloved stars. The geek community took a particularly big hit losing legendary actors such as: Alan Rickman, Kenny Baker, Carrie Fisher and many more. Each time we heard another name of a celebrity who had passed away the world grieved together, as we all remembered the magical stories these talented performers brought to life.

Despite all of the grief 2016 brought, for me personally it was a pretty good year. This time last year I was in the midst of exams while also trying to write my dissertation and organise numerous other university projects. Now, I have graduated university with a first class honours degree and I even themed my dissertation around the geek community that I love!

Since graduating I have landed myself two exciting jobs that I am now hectically jumping between (in a good way). Through doing these jobs I have had numerous wonderful experiences and have met so many amazing people including: Star Wars and Harry Potter actor Warwick Davies and Nadiya Hussain from The Great British Bake Off.

In the geek world we have had some high points as well. I feel that being a geek is gradually becoming more 'cool' which I see as a great thing. In my eyes the more popular nerd culture is, the more geeky content we will get. For example, we have had some amazing science fiction and fantasy films this year. Personally, I especially loved Star Wars: Rouge One and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

On top of all this I am thrilled with how far my blog has come. This year I have improved the rate of content I produce as well as the design of my blog. Plus, my @GlamAndGeek Instagram account is steadily gaining more and more followers who are wonderful geeky people like me. I am so grateful for this online community and the fact that I have found so many amazing like-minded people through writing this blog. I feel so lucky to be part of such a friendly and positive online community - especially as its something that seems to be so rare nowadays. So, thank you to all of you.

I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store for me. Who knows where I'll be this time next year?! I hope you are all as excited as I am to see what this new year brings.



Let me know in the comments how you felt about 2016 and what goals you have for this year.


Happy New Year!
