Your eyes are not deceiving you. The woman above is wearing an Angry Birds dress. And honestly? It isn’t that bad. It really isn’t my jam–I am more of a belted and blinged black dress kind of gal–but I find it fairly whimsical and this woman is managing to somehow pull it off without looking completely ridiculous. I think? To be honest, my brain feels a little scrambled about this; I would never wear such a thing, but I would expect it to be so much worse and it isn’t. Cats and dogs living together! Nothing makes sense anymore to me. Either way, I give my props to any woman who can work an iPhone app into her gown for a party at the Presidential Palace in Finland.
The Angry Birds couture got me thinking about fashion that pays an homage to technology. With technology playing such an integral part of our lives, it is easy to see how one would want to boast about their digital loves on their person.
These Twitter necklaces are cute in a retro, name plate kind of way. I can’t help but think of Carrie Bradshaw when I look at them. Though, I got to be honest; they seem kind of young. Are these meant for adults or the teen set? (The only time I think it would be acceptable for an adult to wear this is at a blogging/twitter conference; then all nerdy bets are off.)
This fail whale onesie is cute, no doubt. It certainly would be the impetus of many conversations…but isn’t it kind of calling your baby an “Epic Fail”? Perhaps I am being too literal, but I am not completely feeling this one.
I am trying to think how I would feel about a man wearing these Apple cufflinks. They admittedly look pretty sleek, but I didn’t quite catch the nerd love that is en vogue right now. But who knows? Maybe these peeking out of a nice french cuff could change my mind.
And finally these geek/internet themed panties. I think I know what I am getting the members of my MamaPop and Moxie Bird family this year for Secret Santa.
What do you think? Would you wear any of this? Do you want to let your geek flag fly or is this too far?
