Northern Ireland based geekery & nerdisms

Tag Archives: asos

I love ASOS. I make no secret of this; over the years I have found some weird and wonderful little things on the site. Mind you, they are, like most regular non-geekcentric websites, slaves to trends. I don’t approve of trends. They are too much like change, and I hate change.

Anyway, the ASOS sale is bloomin’ marvellous. Here are some things I want that you should want too.

Rawr.

Rawr.

Dinosaur t-shirt! Okay, maybe not “geeky”, but adorable and lovely. And I really like green and everyone knows dinosaurs were green. Plus, a steal at £8. It’s only a bargain if it’s under £10.

Subtle, no?

Subtle, no?

Sticking to the girly items for  a moment, this little bangle. Sometimes it is necessary to hide your true, nerdy inner child self under a blanket of maturity and normal-ness (job interviews, weddings, funerals, murder trials), so it is necessary to be a little more subtle in your choice of accessory. This bangle has a teeny pair of geek glasses for a clasp, but I’m sure no one will notice that unless you feel the need to point it out.

Which, of course, you will.

Batman. Always, Batman.

Batman. Always, Batman.

Don’t worry, boy people, I have not neglected you. Batman vest! Vest with Batman on it! Ignore the generic model with generic model head tilt, focus instead on the wonder of the cowl. ASOS mens’ stock has been a little bit disappointing of late, unless you like dressing like a rainbow threw up on you, but every now and again, you get a little gem.

 

Squee.

Retro.

No affirmation necessary. Go get this.

Nom.

This came from the men’s section, but I like to think it’s fairly gender neutral. In honour of True Blood making it’s way back to our screens (erm, well, America’s screens) recently, it seems only fair to include some vampire themed bits and bobs. Although, it seems they have fallen slightly out of vogue in the past few months (Twilight is all over and done with, after all. And thank god), Sky is screening teasers and trailers for the Dracula series they are gifting us in Autumn…so I see fangs making a big comeback.

If you are really into the child-of-the-night-but-not-a-hooker look, there’s also this gothic bling.

ASOS delivers quickly, does not mess you about with returns and exchanges, and the quality of the stuff is beyond decent. Highly recommended. If you do buy something, or see something wonderful that I’ve missed, let me know! I like to know I’m helping someone somewhere in someway, somehow.

See! I didn’t forget you! The girls got a look see at my finds for them earlier, so now, male geeks of Northern Ireland and beyond, I have decided how you should dress.

You’re welcome.

Again, all finds are from ASOS. As I explained on the last blog, I love internet shopping, although I can sometimes be a little wary of the sites. ASOS is tried and tested, and means you can be geeky and fashionable without having to dress like a knob.

You’re welcome.

You cannot beat a good pair of Converse...nor can you beat Batman.

If you get these, tell your girlfriend I picked your underwear, yeah? Dare you.

He may be a boy scout, but these are awesome.

I like to think this is what it would be like if Pacman got really, really drunk...

Sigh. Boys always get cooler clothes than girls. Plus, a lot of these are on sale! Score! You can thank me later.

Actually, if you do buy anything I suggest, like, ever, let me know? Just to give my ego a nice little boost, I’ll feel all useful and helpful.
