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.
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 heard about these travelers undies while listening to travel blogs at work one day. Since my mum and I are preparing for a week-long trip to the UK with just our carry-on luggage, I’m looking for as many ways as possible to make my pack lighter (more space=more room for souvenirs). One of the blogs I was listening to brought Ex Officio up; apparently their underwear is some of the best in travel for men and women, so I figured I would try it 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!
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 (and Fanboys, and everyone inbetween) that time is upon us again. The Holidays.
Also known as the time when I receive anything that my family can find emblazoned with Steve Rogers on it. While I *love* Steve, I’m trying ever so hard to get my family and friends to realize that my nerdy interests are broad and ever-reaching!
Fangirls, awhile back, when I visited Vermont, we went into a rather small bookshop. I have a difficult time not buying books when I’m surrounded by them, so I found one that was rather small, and nabbed it to travel with. Most of my bus ride was filled with naps and snacks, so reading took a bit of a back seat. But a couple weeks ago I took time out from stressing to finish up Worn Stories, and became incredibly grateful that I got it.
