To be perfectly honest, I struggled with a concept for this, the (possibly?) all-important first post of my newly created blog. I couldn't think of a darn thing to say because really, what could I have to say in my little corner of the internet that would interest anyone else? I'm far from an expert on anything, really. I just have a lot to say...
I didn't want to write the stereotypical fashion blog, because 1.) the Outfit of the Day concept is a little too shallow for me, and 2.) there's more to being fashionable then just the clothes on your back. It's important to be healthy, confidant, multifaceted, and aware (both self and socially). So really, while there will obviously be daily fashion posts, I'll also be posting about food, a healthy lifestyle, and any other interest that pops up.
Like this one: Japanese Men in Skirts? That's something new.
I love gender dysmorphia in fashion. It's edgy in a way that makes people uncomfortable, which is good because it can spark discussion and debate about what's socially acceptable between the sexes. We're certainly all too young to remember Marlena Dietrich in her tuxedo, but without her and Katherine Kepburn's stubborn refusal to parade around in skirts 24/7, trousers on women would not have taken off in the way they did.
Apart from the cigarettes, these bitches look fierce! During the WWII era, women in mens clothing was scandalous. The concept of femininity was so ingrained in them that women coping with rations would pencil stocking lines down the backs of their legs just to look like they were wearing nylons. Imagine how different it must have felt to slip on a pair of pants! And while I'm doubtful that men in skirts will catch on (this is Harajuku fashion, after all), it's certainly an interesting concept at the very least.
On a side note, while perusing People.com, I noticed a twitter post from Khloe Kardashian that featured a pic of Kim and Kourtney Pogo Jogging. Yes, Pogo Jogging.

I've never heard of this particular workout before, but how cool and FUN does that look?? I might have to do some research and find a local store where I can procure these fantastic kangaroo boots. Can't you just see some of the young ladies of Boston bopping down Comm Ave in these babies?
I have a feeling the staff at Lululemon are going to see a huge spike in the sale of Ta Ta Tamers if this catches on.
