The combination of technology and fashion is showing all the horrors of adolescence.
For every cool new idea that promises to revolutionize what we wear (dresses made with 3-D printers, fitness and health trackers), there’s an example of the sort of awkwardness — in form, function or price — that makes it clear wearables at large are still not ready for prime time. Not everyone can pull off Michael Schmidt and Francis Bitonti’s 3-D printed nylon dress like Dita Von Teese, price tags on many wearable tech items are still sky high and interest in gadgets can wane (see Nike’s FuelBand).

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
