The answer: All over!
One of the most frequent questions I receive is where I got X shirt, Y leggings, or Z jewelry. I get asked where I tend to shop, and what my favorite stores are. I always feel bad, because I don’t have just one or two set places that I got to the most. I don’t have any brand loyalty, and tend to forget to even keep track of which clothes are from which stores. As a girl, it can be hard to find nerdy clothing that A) Fits well B) Is not super thin, or C) Isn’t pink and glittery. This makes having a list of places that you CAN find them very important!
With all that being said, I do have several places that I tend to scour and, when I have enough extra money, I buy something that strikes my fancy.
Target and Wal-Mart have reputations as being “cheap” or full of some pretty strange people. Well, whenever I need to get some cheap hand soap, or other household items, I find myself wandering on over to the clothing sections. That is where I got my Batman, Captain America, and Spider-Man shirts.
I have been a HUGE fan of ThinkGeek‘s products for years. I have a full drawer of nerdy and geeky shirts, and the vast majority of them came from the ThinkGeek site. I even have a ThinkGeek sticker on my laptop! One of my favorite shirts from them is the Caffeine Molecule t-shirt.
TeeFury is, by far, one of the best places to get nerdy and geeky shirts that you may not see everyone wearing. They have lots of exclusive offers with deadlines, which can be both exciting and frustrating at the same time. So worth it, though!
Redbubble is another fantastic site, and is where I got my favorite shirt in the entire world: My H.P. Lovecraft shirt! I have been madly in love with his writing since I was child, and I totally married him in past life. Yup. This is true. It’s cannon to my life. So, there.
Finally, I get a lot of my shirts from thrift stores! I have found shirts ranging from Power Rangers to Super Girl to Bride of Frankenstein. It’s a great source of nerdy shirts (If you get lucky!) for a super cheap price.
