I wear a lot of nerd stuff, all the time. But because I’m someone with a 9-5 office job, I can’t always wear whatever I want; I have to dress it up a bit. So, two weeks ago I decided to wear something nerdy to work every day, and see if it made anything weird. Guess what Fangirls? It didn’t. We live in an age where nerdy clothing is accessible and common enough that we can wear it to the workplace! Here are some of the ways I dressed up my nerd wear.
Fangirls, I love subscription boxes. So much so, that I went way overboard for subscription boxes in January. But something similar is grab bags, and I ended up buying two different ones in February. I wasn’t expceting much from either, but both surprised me in a great way. But this, the Espionage Cosmetics one, really blew my mind.
I’ve been trying to develop a specific style, and in doing so, have been looking a bit outside of my comfort zone for clothing. While watching a Cracked video awhile back, I saw that Maggie Mae Fish was rocking a fantastic look (jeans, striped shirt, and jean jacket). I pointed out how cool she looked to the boyfriend, and he said that it’s a very me look. I got excited and decided to tweet MMF to find out where she got her shirt (as I don’t have many striped shirts, but I do have jeans and jean jackets). She replied (!) Cotton On, a brand I had never heard of before, but I was excited to check out.
I’m not going to lie to you friends; it’s been so long since I’ve written about clothes that I feel a bit silly right now. But I also feel like I got one of the coolest shirts on the planet the other day, so we’re pushing through!
Fangirls, I love pins. They’re the least expensive way to express yourself on a daily basis. You don’t have to worry about buying exclusively fandom based clothing, or the impact wearing aforementioned fandom based clothing at your job. Pins are relatively inexpensive, and come in a huge range of designs; creators all over the world are designing their own unique pins, and one of my new favorites is The Lantern Girl Shop.
Alright friends and Fangirls, we’re going to get personal very quickly today, as we’re diving right into a conversation about periods (maybe “dive” wasn’t the best word choice. Oh well). Periods can suck, because often you’re tired, you’re in pain, and sometimes you end up ruining your favorite undies. It’s the worst; nobody wants to think “oh it’s over” and then find the last remains of your happiness spotting your favorite undies. Nope. So when I was told about Harebrained’s Period Panties (by my friend Colleen, who is hilarious and perfect), I was intrigued. Then I saw the designs, and was delighted.
Fangirls, I am in love with subscription boxes. It’s a dangerous obsession, but I’m not too concerned; I can totally stop whenever I want to, I just don’t want to right now. One that I had been lusting over for quite some time was the FbFitFun box. I wanted it, but it’s a rather expensive subscription, even though it’s only 4 times a year. But a couple things worked out; I wanted a scarf that was in it (and the scarf alone is about $35), and I got a coupon code that reduced the price pretty significantly. So I sat myself down and justified the heck out of this box.
I am so glad I tried this out. I was not expecting it to be as full as it was, but as you can see, it’s packed! There were so many things in there, and I was so anxious to try them all out. But I did something I usually don’t do first; I found the booklet that tells you how much the items in the box are worth and needed to sit the heck down because I spend around $50 on this box valued at about $260. That’s so much money for these things, and they’re all worth it!
