"HERE COMES JOHNNY YEN AGAIN".

Listening to: Iggy Pop- Lust For Life.

Sometimes I like to buy men's clothes, and obviously wear them. I find it strange how few woman I know (like really next to no woman I know) will shop in men's shops, or the means section of a shop. Why is that? Why do clothes have a gender? I mean they're just bits of material- they don't care if your male female or something in between as long as you entwined with them in mutual love and affection.

When I do were men's closes I tend to feel more 'conservative' and have some sort of masculine power- so rigthly I HAVE to balance that with my Goddess powers and as such tend to add very feminine pieces (like pale pink lips and earrings) and try to show off as much as my womanly charms as possibly- in this case I got my fantastic legs out!



Faux leather shorts: Topshop
Socks: DIY
Earrings: Topshop
Shirt: Charity shop
Bow tie: Vintage
Creepers: Camden (similar here)

I love the crazy spade print on this shirt (although it looks like spots form afar), and think it really goes well with my bow tie (which my boyfriend said makes me look like a mine in the best possible way). Often (actually every time) I wear anything that is typically from a mans shop my mother creates and hates it! which brings me on to my mantra of clothing genders.

Iggy Pop was once arrested for being drunk in public. When his manager bailed him out of jail, he asked Iggy: "why are you wearing a woman dress?". In which Iggy replied "It's not a woman's dress- its mine".

In my last post a lot of people commented how much they liked my camouflage jacket- thank you! I know they are pretty hard and far between to find so I thought I would try to search out a few of my favourites.

Mine was ex military stock from a charity shop- and cost 13 pounds (which is rather expensive from a charity shop but when your freezing cold you will pay it); so I though I would search for one round about that price and no more than 30 pounds (as I am just a poor little student).


The first is from ASOS Marketplace, as is the second, and the third is from Missguided.
