I really wanted to see Felicity go from unfashionable nerdy tech girl to absolutely fashionable sexy geek goddess. It would start with her asking Laurel for help, because she sees Laurel as gorgeous, and is her only female friend on screen. The two would try at it, realizing it was going nowhere, because Felicity was just not getting it. But not all hope is lost because Laurel knows a person: Thea Queen - and we know where it would go from there. Felicity discovers her self worth, is a sexy geek goddess, and doesn’t need Oliver’s confirmation of her worth anymore.
Instead we got an instahot Felicity which bothers me greatly, give me female friendships, give me character development, and give me female body positivity.
I just found out that redbubble are doing skirts now and I’m pretty much drooling over the nerdy possibilites, I feel like having a patterned skirt is a slightly more sophisticated way to wear one’s nerdiness than a graphic tee can be, so I’m super excited!
Here’s a roundup of a couple of my favorite nerdy ones I’ve found so far, with links on each pic
They seem a tiny bit short for my tastes, but they’re high waisted so I think they’d still work with my retro aesthetic if I tried hard enough! I haven’t seen one bought and reviewed anywhere yet, so as soon as I get my pennies together to get one I’ll review it for my youtube!
