7 Awesome Resources For Masculine-Of-Center Beauty

7 Awesome Resources For Masculine-Of-Center Beauty

Here’s the way I identify, in my own head: Masculine bisexual cis female. That is a string of words that makes almost no sense to a lot of people in my life who would rather just be like “aren’t you kind of just … Rebecca?” And yeah, that’s true too. But my four-word identity is my short summary of who I am, what pronouns I use, what my love life looks like, and how I present myself to the outside world, or, in short, the way I relate to other people as far as my gender goes.

My presentation has changed markedly over the last few years. Part of the reason I slimmed down my wardrobe and switched to versatile basics is that I felt really inauthentic in the very loud clothing I was wearing. When I wore metallic gold miniskirts or flouncy floral skirts or bright pink minidresses I ordered from ModCloth — even when I was wearing structured dresses that complimented my waist-to-hip ratio beautifully — it felt like a costume. It felt like I was trying too hard. Switching over to jeans, leggings, basic tees, loafers, and combat boots has removed all the stress from getting dressed. Keep reading »

These Literal Kitten Heels Are A Dream Come True

Cat Heels

Cat lady PSA: these Paw Print shoes by Irregular Choice allow you to walk on kitties all day long. The shoes are designed by Dan Sullivan, and in the place of a typical 4-inch heel is a 4-inch smiling cat figurine. Last year, the company sold similar shoes with bunnies, gnomes, and even little Santas serving as heels, but let’s be real, none of those come close to competing with these cat creations. Anyone who owns a pair of these is living the dream as far as I’m concerned, and should probably be my best friend so I can borrow them. [Image via Irregular Choice]

Hi/Lo: Metallic Oxfords, Loafers & Brogues

Sensible shoes don’t have to be boring! The latest menswear-inspired oxfords, loafers and brogues walked the high fashion runways in an array of gleaming metallics, but as much as I love a pair of gold or silver shoes, I don’t want them to cost me my weight in gold and silver either. Luckily, the metallic trend has trickled down — here are affordable alternatives to five pairs of high-shine designer kicks.

The Altuzarra For Target Collection Is Kind Of Amazing

As I’ve said time and time again, Target’s designer collaborations are hit or miss. Prabal Gurung and Philip Lim? Loved. My Boom! sweatshirt is still inspiring catcallers. Kate Young? Nightmare. But if I may make a prediction, based on the just released lookbook, Target’s upcoming collection with Altuzarra (launching September 14) may just be a knockout. Full of snake prints, jewel tones mixed with neutrals, painterly orchids and a mixture of both ease and structure, the collection is perfect for the bad ass business lady who likes to smoke a little grass, drink bourbon and tie up her boyfriends in her downtime. Don’t worry — you have a little bit of her inside you, so this collection is totally for you. Click through to see all the looks, plus closeups of some of my favorite pieces. [Refinery 29]

Fashion Math: Graphic Sweatshirts + Printed Skater Skirts + Bright Stilettos

Y’all know me. I can’t resist a graphic sweatshirt, I love a blindingly bright shoe, and, as one lame ex-BF once noted, I never met a print I didn’t like. Obviously, I needed to play a lil’ Fashion Math with Nina Dobrev’s cute ensemble combinging all three elements.

One Denim Pencil Skirt, Three Ways To Wear It
