Well we have some bad news.

You aren't. 

Everyone is doing exactly the same thing. Well, practically everyone.

According to fashion aggregator Lyst searches for Eleven-esque apparel have rocketed in recent weeks, despite Halloween still being a good month away.

Eleven, the Netflix series' main character, is best known for pale pink Peter Pan collar dress, tube socks and navy bomber jacket...

Last week, this pale pink Peter Pan collar dress from ASOS was viewed every three minutes via Lyst, while 80 per cent of those searching for such a dress also searched for tube socks, with sales of the hoisery item have increased by 34 per cent. 

Blue jackets have also seen a spike in searches, with one particular ASOS style receiving almost 90 per cent more views in the last four weeks than in the month previously.

We know what you're thinking now: 'Eleven may not be original, but Barb is!'

Errr, wrong again. Sorry.

Since the beginning of August, more than 3,000 people have searched for Barb-style ruffled gingham blouses via Lyst.

Searches for mesh trucker caps are also 116 per cent up, which Lyst is blaming on Dustin, as are searches for retro sleeveless puffer vests, like those seen in the series.

Basically, we've all gone Stranger Things mad.
