WEIRDO in a good way

Being called a "weirdo” usually means the oddball in the room, or the person that freaks everyone out the most. We prefer to refer to weirdos “in a good way"; that’s right, we’re taking the word back. Going forward term weirdo will refer to someone who is unique, unconventional, and/or quirky in their behavior, thoughts, or interests, but in a positive and endearing manner. Simply put, you have distinctive qualities that set you apart from others, and people appreciate your individuality. You’re welcome.

Being different can feel like a liability. While conformity may be most peoples comfort zone, ours is probably making everyone squint. We flipped the script!  Let’s celebrate our uniqueness instead of trying to fit in. Embracing ones quirks and “ism’s” aka "weirdness" should be a source of strength and creativity, not something to hang your head low about.  

To kick things off, let's define what it means to be "weird in a good way." It's about boldly embracing our quirks, eccentricities, and unconventional traits, you know, being unapologetically DOPE. It's about being authentic to ourselves, even if it means standing out from the crowd because, lets be real, blending in is a lil boring. 

Think about the benefits to embracing your uniqueness:

  • fostering creativity and innovation,  
  • promoting personal growth and self-discovery, 
  • free to live up to your own standards,
  • promoting self acceptance,
  • celebrating diversity,
  • standing on business as an individual.

This is the type of mindset and confidence that opens doors to new opportunities and experiences. It's also the type of mindset that helps you push through.

Story time…  growing up in the 90’s was great, it was a time where everyone pushed the limits by expressing themselves through fashion. Brands like Polo, Tommy Hilfiger and FUBU debuted amazing streetwear collections. Sad fact, most of the line was geared toward men and as a young girl I was told I was a “tomboy” for wanting to wear jeans versus a dress.

Picture this…a “taller than everyone” girl, with long arms and legs. All my sleeves were too short and most of pants never covered my ankles. But there was something about a pair of jeans that just fit and made everything right with the world. Much like some of the denim we have here at Chloe Shaniece.

I say all that to say, I had to go through those awkward years to understand who I was as an individual; I also made some cool friends along the way. There was nothing that I could change about myself, so owning my quirks was the only route. There's something to be said about people who are comfortable in their own skin.

As we wrap up, let's celebrate the beauty of being "weird in a good way." The beauty of the bring labeled "weirdo" is what motivated me to create the World Wide Weirdo collection. Embracing our uniqueness is not only a journey of self-discovery but also a testament to our creativity, resilience, and authenticity. So, go ahead—embrace your weirdness and let your light shine bright. I offer these words of encouragement to readers who may be struggling to embrace their uniqueness: remember, being "weird in a good way" is not only okay—it's empowering. Your quirks and eccentricities are what make you truly extraordinary.
