Menswear-Inspired Styling Ideas

In October of last year I received an email from an editorial assistant at a major U.S. magazine. I mean, major! They wanted some photos from me, as a style blogger, to illustrate my take on menswear for women, which would potentially run in a small feature in their January 2011 issue. I was floored and so incredibly honored that they had reached out to me, of all people!! So I put together some looks, shot some photos, and sent them. For months afterwards I kept it to myself for the most part…but kept muttering to myself under my breath: “OMG I’m going to be in ______!!!!” And then I squeeeeed a bit. Okay, I’m still 5 years old in some ways.;-)
Well, sadly in the January issue they decided not to use any of the photos I sent them. Bummer. It happens! But ohwell, at least I now have a couple neat photos I can share with you! (And a couple of DIY items in there as well…)
Just my ideas of a feminine take on “menswear” (though as I was going back through my photos, I decided to poke some fun at myself and add silly titles).
