Today's look is an homage to my geekier side because truth be told, 95% off the time you'll most likely find me lounging around in Star Wars or Suicide Squad merch. I think that's one thing that doesn't translate as well solely from my blog (more so if you follow my other social media channels though): how much of a pop culture nerd I actually am. Though I have started sharing my cosplay work on here as well as posts on events such as screenings, Comic Cons, and premieres. Ever since I was a little girl I've loved losing myself in fictional stories whether it came in the form of books or film and since moving to London I've found yet another outlet: theatre. I admittedly get way too attached to fictional characters and spend a lot of time daydreaming of other fantasy worlds. It's a side of me that I can easily switch off though, and a side that only close friends get to see in real life. Maybe I've developed two different personas, or a public vs private one but I'm sure many of you can relate to this in a way.
I feel like this is something that sets me apart in an ocean of 'fashion bloggers' though and I guess what I'm trying to get at is, sometimes I feel out of place in this blogging industry for being so passionate about these nerdier things when in reality it's probably something to embrace. Through all the networking that we do as bloggers, it's something quite special when you find someone who shares the same interests as you, that connection is immediately ten times stronger than usual. On the other hand, I don't feel like I 100% belong on the other side either. I'd most definitely lose to any Star Wars fan in a game of trivia and whilst I enjoy listening to my friends gush about different celebrities, I could count on my fingers the ones I'd personally fangirl over. Furthermore, most of the geekier gang I've encountered perhaps won't understand my style or the 'latest trends' and it makes me wonder whether they feel intimidated by that.
So I guess I've come to the conclusion that I don't fit into a certain typical mould and that's ok for everyone. Be who you want to be, do what you want to do, share what you love and accept what you may not. I'm Andini, a fashion blogger and a professional fangirl. This is what makes me, well me, and I can definitely multitask.
