About Shannon

Hey hey, resident Geek Chic columnist here!  I’m a senior at BU double-majoring in psychology and biology, if only because colleges don't seem to offer concentrations in Disney/sci-fi/fantasy trivia.  When I grow up, I want to be Mulan.

If you look in my hideously messy closet, you'll note my obsession with silk blouses, high waisted skirts, leather jackets, and shoes [omg, shoes!].  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, sewing/costuming, volunteering with Operation Smile, and thrift shopping.

Suggestions for the column? Questions? Burning desire to discuss Trek or Buffy or LOTR or Doctor Who? Hit me up  @shannnonigans or at!

Closet VIP: How I Wear My Navy Blazer

I call these my “closet VIPs” – very important pieces of clothing […]
