Fashion world, you’ve done us wrong and here are our demands.
As fun as fashion can be, there are many supposed “rules” to dressing your fine self. It’s something that makes getting outfitted a very overwhelming process; which of these laws should be followed? I’m going to let you in on a secret… You don’t need to listen to a single one.

But wearing these bomb ass shoes is a breeze. I’m gonna show you how!
“Yes, the queers have always been a force in fashion, but they’ve been behind the scenes. Queer Fashion Week puts us in the spotlight. The mission was to showcase artists, stylists, and designers who create work for all body types and genders.”
“Evan Rachel Would”? Damn right, Evan Rachel Would.
If you need me between now and late fall, you can find me poolside, roadside, on the metro, at work, laying in the bench in my bay window, and grocery shopping in the same silhouette: a crop top and high-waisted bottoms.
To say that I’m infatuated with denim may be an understatement. In the name of experimentation, I hooked up with ASOS to test drive some “of the moment” jeans from their Denim Bar.

Hey boi, here’s an array of homemade products and some very necessary queer/hippie extras that keep me feeling so fresh and so clean clean. Let’s be fresh together forever. Xo.
“Anyhow, I put this binder on, and after the initial struggle that always comes with putting on a thing that fits as tightly as binders should fit, I felt — nothing. The binder felt like nothing. THE BINDER FELT LIKE NOTHING, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
