OH MAN. ARE YOU GUYS READY TO TAKE A JOURNEY?
1) I had long hair all the way up until like…junior year of high school??
2) I always kinda had a boyish sense of fashion, but it was like…really bad. Baggy as hell clothes and really no taste at all. When I cut my hair, I had a revelation that the label on the clothes didn’t matter. My style kinda got like…generic skater/tomboy/wannabe-punky/urban IDK I just wanted to wear stuff from the boys section. This lasted through college.
It wasn’t until I started working that my style evolved to where it is now. It started with the haircut and actually having money to buy quality stuff.
That, and I started actively learning about the rules of fit for menswear. I still put in some elements from my older style too though, just can’t give up hats..
3) I’ve been mistaken for a boy a lot actually. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it a little bit, but I feel weird about it too.
I generally approach my style like I’m “cross-dressing,” but it feels natural to me so I don’t like to call it that.
I think I’d get more of a reaction out of people if I dressed like super girly though.
….Speaking of, I was nominated for “homecoming queen” in high school and got dolled up for it. I think I looked pretty good LOL
(yes that’s someone on my arm…we were just friends though jeez)
