Steal from the Boys

Sure, I always am and always will be a lady of many dresses, but sometimes I am more than intrigued how to put the lady aside and let that testosterone bit that runs through my veins to take the lead. And no, I'm not an actual thief as you may assume from the title. I just like to tease. And to wear boys clothes.



It's funny though how an outfit can actually change your perspective on how you feel and act. When I was wearing this particular ensemble, my hand were automatically searching for pockets, my foot steps were longer and my whole posture were driven by some strange energy. That's why I love fashion and dressing up, it can do wonders about your whole aspect of the day. You know that time when you were wearing your special ball gown, even just for fun? You felt like a princess, didn't you? That's what I'm talking about.

Mens fashion may seem plain but it sure is a lot of fun when you are- a women. So go and dive into your other half's drawers and closets and bring out all the fun stuff they usually store for special occasions. Put on their bow ties, attach suspenders and don't forget about the hat! There you go, you're ready now to brighten up your day with your fresh boyish vibe!

  2. Awesome outfit! Omg, those shoes!! And I like how you talked about how outfits can change you. I love dresses too, but sometimes it's fun to be "one of the boys" as well! XO

    1. Thank you darling! Yes, it sure is a lovely change, to simply jump into your trousers and move on. :)

  4. Fantastic borrowed-from-the-boys look, dear Josefina. I just love the mix of textures and muted hues at work in this fun ensemble. Like yourself, I usually dress quite feminine, but sometimes get the urge to sport a menswear look, too, and often include a vest/waistcoat as well when I do. I wonder if we're drawn to such because they can help to still define our womanly figures in the midst of more masculine style garments?

    Big hugs & happy Wednesday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica
