Intro [04 Dec 2009|10:46pm]

strippertroll
Name: Marilyn
Age: 20, to be 21 in September
Identify?: Straight, female, admirer or masculine beauty. I don't try to pass, no.
Style: A bizarre mix of styles, particularly influenced by Japan and various periods of European antiquity. I'm equally comfortable in "gothic" (black, grey, jewel tones) and "preppy" (khaki, white, colours) colour schemes. I also dress "regular" at times, but rarely all-out fem. It's been remarked that I have a slightly Squeenix-type feel to my dress.
Wardrobe staples: skinny pants, khaki trousers, long-sleeved button-up shirts, waistcoats, blazers, pseudo-frock coats, riding boots
Places to shop: everywhere cheap. Cheap is relative, though, because I don't think much of spending $40 on a shirt, as long as it used to cost $100. Salvation Army, Gabriel Bros, Ebay, Goodwill, Plato's Closet.

This is me




Jacket - Lux (Urban Outfitters), Gabriel Bros. $3
Shirt - NY&Co., Gabriel Bros. $12
Vest - Lucy Love (Pac Sun), $24
Pants - United Colours Of Benetton, Salvation Army $4
Belt - Bullhead (Pac Sun), $24
Buckle - Gabriel Bros., $1

hey all, new to this community...

but we should get a theme of whatiwore today or something going ...

so i've been taking pictures of what i've been wearing. sort of like the whatiworetoday communities except i don't really want to post there as i'm kind of indifferent to the people there.

here is an outfit from the beginning of the month.


so i had this pair of white loafer shoes that i found on the side of the road and i was trying to figure out how to put an outfit together that would work with the colours. The photo is kind of bad but i managed to have an outfit based on tones/shades. white shoes, black socks, grey jeans, black v-neck, white with grey stripes shirt.

one more outfitCollapse )

Introduction [14 Oct 2008|10:52am]

detre_delicat
Hello.

I'm Jillian. I live in Maryland sometimes, Virginia other times. I am an artist. I am a 19 year old bisexual person.

I would describe my everyday style as "Sebastian from Neverending story meets the kid in The Sixth Sense", but it changes all the time.

Sometimes it's more hip-hop, sometimes more punk, sometimes is more feminine, sometimes more masculine, and I don't feel more inclined to either.

Here are some pictures :]Collapse )

Plus size birl clothings? [23 Jun 2008|06:05pm]

growing_wise
Why must plus-sized women be reduced to wearing grandma - style clothes?  Or have no choice but to wear ultra-femme tops that dip down to show my cleav?   And plus-sized men's clothes?  Well they seem to always combine "big" with "tall" and being 5'3", that doesn't work for me.

Please, people - help me find some affordable androgynous plus-sized clothes.

Name: Fynn
Location: Oxfordshire, England
Identifies as: Bi, androgyne/soft butch
Style: formal-ish guy (3 piece suit, top hat [I wish…], button-up shirts etctera), steampunk/Victorian-goth (when I’m feeling daring), jeans+baggy T-shirt/beater (when I’m feeling tired)
Favorite Clothing:  button-up shirts, black trousers or jeans, neckscarves/ties, boots (Doc Martens and riding-boot style stuff), beaters, hats, leather gloves, wrist-cuffs
Least Favorite Clothing: skirts, short-shorts, boob-tubes, high heels, anything bright pink, low-waisted jeans
Before you were a birl, you dressed like: I’ve always dressed like a tomboy
What would you like to see in the future of fashion for birls?: more recognition of the fact that some women want to wear men’s formal stuff too (especially problematic when you’re short = I’m only 5 foot 1, so nothing fits me)

i'm jack. 24 as of march.
i like clothes. too much. i'm currently going through the painful process of lightening my wardrobe because i live in a camp trailer in bellingham, wa right now and i don't have anywhere to keep my wardrobe which, due to several recent homes dangerously close to secondhand stores, and also due to a hugely vascillating gender identity/presentation, has gotten way, way too big to handle. i want to be a personal stylist so i can dress someone up all the time without it causing my wallet to shrink and my closet to bulge.

Fall rolls around and I get kind of into this oliver twist/newsboy thing...patched jackets and collared shirts and sweaters, and knee length pants with tall socks, and some sort of cap. anyone heard of teddy boys/teddy girls? it's this fashion phenomenon of the 50s. i also like that check it:Collapse )

Birl Eye for the Birl :D [15 Oct 2007|11:15pm]

Hello. I'm Creamie (not my real name, but it is teh cool ^_^). I'm 20 years old, I'm from Georgia and I identify as genderqueer currently. I'm short and slender and even though I have a rather feminine face, I am often mistaken for a boy when my hair is really short.

This is slightly off-topic (STORY TIME! ^-^), but one time, I was eating at my college's cafeteria. My hair was really short, but I had on a SPARKLY LIGHT BLUE sweat suit. Anyways, some guy asked me if he and his friend could sit with me. I told them okay. The guy turned around and said "HE says we can sit here." I almost died laughing. :D (As I've stated, I was eating in a college cafeteria and I was wearing a light blue sparkly sweat suit. They probably thought I was, like, a really femme 12 year old boy XD) My mom is so depressed because she's really rigid when it comes to gender roles/dress and, of course, I'm genderqueer AND I'm mistaken for a guy occasionally. ^-^ (Well, not now since my hair's longer) My mom's always like "She's a girl!" and people are like "Oh! Oh! Sorry!" XD

Anyway, here's the real reason I posted. I am fashionably challenged. I now wear a bandana, a t-shirt, some shorts, and black walking shoes. EVERY DAY. I wear black one day. And blue one day. And black one day. And blue one day. I need serious help. Please give me all of the fashion advice you can. I'm not sure what fashion path I really want to be on, so just throw anything at me. Any path would be better than the path I'm on now. Thanks. XD

article on 3 piece suits [30 Sep 2007|08:49am]

queerxcore
I thought some of you might enjoy this article I found in my newspaper this morning:

source: Sun-Sentinel.com

A three-piece suit requires equal parts style and confidence. Too little of either and you run the risk of looking like you're playing a gangster in a high school play.

"It's a more refined, nostalgic look," says modern-day dandy Cameron Silver, owner of the Hollywood, Ca., vintage boutique Decades. "But designers recently saw it as an opportunity to make suits a bit more luxurious. Plus it's something new in menswear — where things don't change too often."

The style, long favored in England's Savile Row and by European fashion houses, was prominent in the fall collections of such perennial American designers as Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan and John Varvatos. The modernity comes by way of simple patterns, refined fabrics and a lean, more streamlined fit.

Silver suggests those suiting themselves for cool days and hot offices (or vice versa) can shed the jacket and simply don the vest. Or split the suit up into a blazer, trousers and waistcoat for a week's worth of polished options.

"My fashion mantra has always been, 'Would Cary Grant wear this?'" he says. "And with these I think, yeah, of course he would."

Hell my fellow birls!

Anyways this is probably the most stupidest question in the world maybe even off topic but it has to do with hair. Thats part of style right? Mods, feel free to delete this if this isn't on-topic.

Switchblade Skull Shirts [29 Jul 2007|12:07pm]
nikscarlett
D'oh - i keep forgetting to post about this here!
Anyways, I've been using some form a switchblade (or switchblade comb) and skull imagery for my personal promotions for the last handful of years now --- but until recently i never had shirts made up. I got these back from the printers a few weeks ago, and the outcome is exactly what i wanted:


If you're interested in one, they're $17.00 (that includes shipping) - and I have S, M, L, & XL sizes left. (I recently sold out of 2XL - but should have more on the way soon). More info can be found on my website:

www.scarlett-ink.com

PS. I should mention these are slim-cut shirts. I'm usually lucky if i can find a guy's small that fits me (I average between a guy's XS & S), but the small in these fit me like a glove (as you can see!)
