BLACK BLAZER: H&M | LACE SHORTS: ASOS | DENIM SHIRT & LEOPARD PRINT SLIPPERS: TOPSHOP
Sometimes I feel like throwing a lace dress on or some pretty pastel colours, but I always like to add a little sumthin'-sumthin' to my outfits to give it a little edge. Yes, I might wear bright pink jeans with an equally girlie floral shirt, but I'll always 'man it up' a bit with a pair of Converse and my sleeves rolled up. I don't like to be too matchy-matchy. I manned it up quite a lot with this look, as I intended, but I stayed away from the Converse and instead chose some flats, which are a little more ladylike, and bright red nails. There's something about a suit - whether it's a trouser, short or skirt one - that makes your outfit say 'I'm not dressing for men, I'm dressing for me'. Androgynous fashion is something which some women stay well away from, but I love it, I'd definitely be more drawn to a women dressed in an oversized shirt and a boyfriend blazer than a girl in a disty floral dress and ballet flats. Basically if I saw Tilda Swinton and Taylor Swift walking down the street (it could happen...), I know who I would be looking at more. I'm not saying being a girlie-girl is a bad thing, no no no, women have their own style and they know what they look good in, but there is something which I find SO EFFING COOL about Lisbeth Salander (or Rooney Mara) in 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' with her bleached eyebrows and dark eye make-up.
Perhaps I'm a closet lesbian... Maybe I should go and paint my nails or something.
