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 »

Style Stealer: Lily Collins' Cute Kimono Cover-Up

If it’s warm out but you still want to wear some sort of coverup, consider a kimono jacket like the one Lily Collins is wearing over her simple skinny jeans and grey T. The billowy sleeves and floral print add visual interest, while the thin, lightweight fabric doesn’t turn you into a bucket of walking sweat. Woot! Steal Lily’s whole look after the jump… Keep reading »

I Have Chronic Yeast Infections

i have chronic yeast infections

I had my first yeast infection at the age of 17. I’d been to a summer music festival in my kicky “boho” jeans and home-made Beastie Boys tank, sweat a lot in the pit, and awoke the next morning to find a discharge the consistency of cottage cheese tumbling from within my vagina.

My reaction was a mixture of mild concern (“I guess that’s the ‘cottage cheese discharge’ I’ve read about in Everywoman, huh …”) and, perhaps more alarmingly, a sense of abject fascination at the Cronenbergian nature of the human body (“…COOL!!”).

My mother’s reaction was altogether a more reasonable one, which was to whisk me off to the chemist to pick up what was then the best defense: six days’ worth of Clotrimazole antifungal vaginal pessaries (weird squishy single-dose egg-shaped things/creams/applicators/wipes/tablets). I would spend the next week with the telltale “sand in the pants” sensation that anyone who has run a course of six-day pessaries will be intimately familiar with.

 That was in 2001, and it was my first step on a tortuous journey towards self-acceptance: acceptance, that is, of the fact I am one of those members of the population doomed to a lifetime shared with a colony of angry yeasts. Keep reading »

Must Haves: 7 No-Show Panties

We have all been there. You put on a pair of white shorts, stretchy leggings, a jersey skirt or a chiffon dress and proudly strut out the door only to realize that in the light of day, your outfit is straight up see-through. Your ass walks down the street saying “GOOD DAY!” to everyone it passes. And it happens more often than any of us want to admit. But the thing is, this is totally avoidable. There are several types of full coverage “nude” or skin-colored seamless panty options out there — here’s where to find them.

These Yoga Pants Are Specially Designed For Going Commando

Yoga pants just got even comfier — now you can buy a pair with built-in underwear. Julie Sygiel of the Dear Kate lingerie line got so sick of worrying about panty lines, chafing and period mishaps that she created a line of yoga pants that allow women the ”freedom to go commando.” When one of Sygiel’s friends suggested she try exercising without underwear, she loved how much more, well, uninhibited she felt. Unfortunately, she realized pretty quickly it wasn’t gonna fly with her super thin leggings in yoga class, which is when she set out to create her own.

The pants have a built-in panty liner made from a breathable fabric called “Underlux” that takes the place of regular underwear. They also have magic seams inside that somehow prevent any accidental reveals, and are made in the USA. Keep reading »
