Shhhh…don’t tell anybody but in my teenage years, I was a super-geek. I would pile on the pink thinking that it was super dope….oops! Not at all! I was so geekish, that I even coordinated my ponytail holder with my outfit.
I was obsessed with clothes since I could say the word wardrobe. Instead of smearing fingerprints on the walls, I was matching outfits on my Barbie collection, and pestering my mom to buy me shoes that matched my clothes.
This of course only got worse once I became a teenager - my obsession with clothes only grew. My main role models during those formative years, were Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” (I especially loved when she was booted out from a fancy boutique in Beverly Hills because she doesn't look like she can afford it. Eventually, she spent all the money elsewhere, and of course she looked amazing like a real lady!) and Olivia Newton-John in “Grease". They were fabulous, and I wanted to be an independent woman like them, dress like a lady yet edgy like them.
I was ahead of my time - at the age of 15 I was dressing like a 30 year old. I got laughed at a lot-because let’s face it, that is a bit strange, but I didn’t care- that was the true me and I was proud of being me; because clothes are the ultimate form of self-expression.
But it is definitely true what they say - he who laughs last, laughs best! Today Nerdish is super-in, especially after Gucci brought back, again, “geek-chic” in his 2017 spring collection. I have brought you the best of my wardrobe, in which I combine super “geek-chic” with my every day “normal” outfits.
