“Queer Fashion Week wasn’t just about an aesthetic. It was about our community beyond just our sexualities, about body positivity, about representation, about celebrating and supporting each other in all things queer.”
It’s of little surprise that the “oxford” or “brogue” has gained popularity in non-formal environments. Since many associate this shoe with school uniforms, itchy polyester and ill-fitting suits, it may be troublesome to find a way to incorporate lace-ups into a casual look. 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.
Since stumbling upon greasers and teddy girls sporting white tees and cuffed jeans, I’ve held a special lil’ spot in my sartorial heart for the classic white t-shirt.
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.”
Wanna get all dressed up despite having no public place to go? Me too!
It ain’t easy being natural, but it feels good.
Prepare to get your warmth on.
What to wear when it’s not quite warm enough for tank tops, but plenty warm enough to ditch the thermal underwear.
Evan Rachel Wood, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress and babely human, might have weekend cool mastered… #EvanRachelWould, indeed.
In the world of beauty, there are so-so products that get the job done, great products that exceed expectations, and then there are Holy Grail products. HG status is reserved for the ones that seem made just for you, the ones you’d never change, the ones you can’t live without. For the FFAF take on TSH, it’s HG or bust, and heavy on red lips and shiny hair.
Crosswalks are impassable and the city is frozen tundra.
Buy this sh*t and tell the world your truths, god damn it.
On 30 November 2013, Crystal had a dream. Today, that dream is realized: anything you can buy from Hot Topic can make Autostraddle money.
Do you celebrate it? Is it too soon? Should you get her something? What if she gets you something? Do you ask her out or is that too much pressure for a first date? Basically, Valentine’s Day is a red velvet ball of panic threatening to end your sanity and any hopes of a relationship you may or may not have. There’s a pretty good chance that if you look good, they may not notice just how much a wreck you are or how horrible the date is actually going. Here are a few pointers on how to razzle dazzle your lady friend!
Valentine’s Day. It’s essentially a capitalist ploy to sell thousands of Hershey’s Kisses (for drowning your sorrows or just blessin’ your boo). My general thoughts are: it’s a very ridiculous day for everyone, but I like telling people that I love them & I am a sucker for any sort of themed dressing.
