A comic I know on Facebook posted a link to this heterosplaining article that strawmans the fuck out of the Michael Sam stuff. The guy I know commented on it in the case of “It should be all about football.” I felt like responding, so here’s what I said:
Don’t want to get into a big…
Michael Spookshow of HisBlackDress.com wears cute pink shit!
While I was writing up the post for my most recent OOTD, I couldn’t help but feel like I’d worn the outfit before on the blog. Disregarding common sense I only decided to check this after the post went live, and while I was wrong about having already shown it, I did, however, find quite a few fun pink outfits in my OOTD picture folder. I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here in this post, and if you’d like to see more of my looks please visit my full blog over at HisBlackDress.com!
Yeah, it’s anooother pink and blue outfit, y’all. I know, I know, but hey, it is the color scheme of the blog AND my favorite color combination. It’s also completely fabulous, so whateva. I’m gettin’s some serious 80s from this one (I think it’s those bright white contrasting heels), but I kinda love it. Ending the post with a question as usual to make it easier for y’all to comment, okay?
Last time I wore this dress on the blog I paired it with pastel pinks and blues, and while I decided to keep that color palette for this post, why not take it up a notch and go with hot fuckin’ pink (and blue)! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted here; the seasons have changed and now it’s back to being hot here in Florida. I’m really happy with how cool (temperature-wise, and otherwise) this outfit is while still being fun and stylish. I generally dislike a lot of the spring and summer clothes I see in stores, so these hot months are always a bit of a challenge for me. I’m pretty confident with this one, though, so I’ll say it … nailed it. Haha, amirite?
All dressed up and ready to take #ootd photos only to discover the camera battery is dead. #fatshionistaproblems
So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”
Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting.
I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.
I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.
This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.
Keeps getting better. Rock on, man.
So, it’s been a little while. Sorry for that! I’ve been very hard at work on a cosplay project (which you can read all about here), and, well, time just kinda got away from me. But hey, I’m back now!
My original thought was that it would be fun to pair this red skirt with the blue heels, and by the time I added the white knee highs it became clear that I might as well go full on school uniform inspo! I think it’s super fun, though, hmm?
Beginning of spring look.
