The lovely Christina gave me a great idea for a post with her thoughts on feminine dressing. Like me, she likes to pretty up a more masculine outfit with a flash of floral or little bit of lace.
If you take a look at my photos, including the one above, you’ll see I follow a pretty solid pattern. If I’m wearing jeans, I go for girly colours, floral fabrics and shiny jewels – like here. When I wear dresses, I find a balance by adding tough boots, big belts and paired down accessories – like here.
I’m a rather feminine individual anyway – I have an irrational hatred of the outdoors (unless it’s sunny and I don’t have to walk anywhere), I like the colour pink, I collect flowery crockery and spiders make me scream. So does my femininity shine through, regardless of what I’m wearing? Would I still look dainty and doll-like (who am I kidding?!) in boyfriend jeans and a hoody? Or is our perception of femininity based on that first glance?
I’ll never be the type of girl to throw on her boyfriend’s shirt and still ooze glamour from every pore. I suck without makeup and I’m actually quite a dab hand at changing the oil on my car. Maybe not so feminine after all? I’ll let you decide as I paint my nails Baby Pink…
PS – Thank you all so much for your opinions on yesterday’s post. I just wanted to say to anyone considering or pursuing a job in fashion – don’t give up! Work as hard as you can to get the career that’s right for you and don’t be put off by stories from the front line. Everyone’s experience is different and it’s living through them that makes us better people. 🙂
