Just when you thought that the bizzare holidays that we uncover (hope everyone enjoyed ‘Paper Bag’ Day yesterday!) couldn’t get any stranger the clock strikes midnight and rings in “Embrace Your Geekness” Day! It is indeed Friday the 13th but over here at the studio we have chosen not to give into superstitions (even though we’ve knocked on wood at least 5 times already…) and instead are letting the ‘geek chic’ in us rule the day!
Not going to lie, we haven’t quite broken out the pocket protectors nor wrapped tape around our the middle of our eye glasses but we’ve have gotten a kick out of paroozing old photos of our team back in the ‘awkward’ days. Everyone has those pictures that you would rather close your hand in a door then let anyone in the world see- the ones that people who don’t even know you laugh at simply because they can’t fathom a more noticeably uncomfortable-with-themselves human being?! Well, it’s your lucky day because we have compiled some of those blackmail-esk kodak moments of our staff for you on this lovely Friday because we’re choosing to ‘embrace our geekness’ this holiday rather than deny it:) Prepare yourselves…
Firstly, feast your eyes on Emma from our Marketing team back in her pin-wearing, chubbier days…
Next, Allison, our resident Photoshop extraordinaire and one of the only people who can dress up as a nerd and still look stunning..
Up next is the lovely Ellina, from our Operations department, loving in on her plastic ice cream cone, we don’t ask questions.. haha
Alas, not one but two old-school pictures of Nissa herself! Plese note the ‘Dorothy Hamilll’ haircut (she would like to personally thank her mother for that one)..
yup… that happened
“big hair, don’t care”
Not ready to fully fly your ‘freak flag’? Do not fear! We have you covered! We compiled some of our favorite pieces into a ‘geek chic’ board so you can look nifty even on your nerdiest days!
See the ‘dweeby diva’ inspired ensemble we put together on Polyvore with a few of the pieces above:)
