This past Saturday Dave and I went to see Capcom Live featuring the Video Game Orchestra. We had some time before the show, so we stopped by Assembly Row in Somerville to do some outlet shopping.
As you can see, I snagged a few deals from Express! I don’t usually shop there, but the outlet had some cute tops I couldn’t resist!
Since the concert we went to featured Capcom music, I decided to go with a Mega Man themed outfit. I found this blue scuba knit dress in the back of my closet, and it was the perfect thing to wear with my light blue cardigan. I originally purchased this dress last year when I dressed up as Sonic the Hedgehog for Spirit Week at school. haha 🙂
It was so much fun to stroll around Assembly Row – they have added so much since the last time we were there! It’ll definitely be a great place to hang out on a nice afternoon once the weather gets warmer.
To accessorize, I wore an 8-bit Mega Man pin – I love how he ties the whole outfit together! I also made sure to carry around my video game sprite-themed purse. They are both from ThinkGeek. If you have never shopped at their website, I recommend you check it out! They have so many wonderfully geeky products 🙂
Oh, and I can’t forget to mention how cute my husband looked! He was rocking a Dr. Wily pin…I just loved our coordinated accessories!
After the concert, we noticed that the MIT Green Building was displaying Tetris. We recognized it immediately, since we played the game on the same building a few years ago.
Sure enough, they had the little podium set up so Dave played a round. I would have done the same, but by the time he finished my fingers were frozen! Luckily I didn’t feel like I was missing out since I had played the last time.
So cool though, right?!
