Finding and Reaffirming My Femme Identity

feminspire:

femme pride

Attending university in a major city afforded me more opportunities to be queer, femme and latinx simultaneously, but it never escaped me that maybe-just maybe-the intersection of my identities was playing into exactly what most fetishists assume latina women to be: sexually fluid with long hair and bold makeup.

Eventually I pushed back. My waist-length hair was cut short, and my skin tight clothes were swapped for dark, shapeless swaths of fabric. The entire phase left me feeling incredibly vulnerable, and it didn’t dawn on me that maybe I was playing into a different kind of stereotype.

Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.
As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation. Why? Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.
Today, the fashion industry is split in half. You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion. You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.  This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.
Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one. Why is this bad for corporations?MONEY More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.
When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.
I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …
A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM. IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.IT SEPERATES. IT CONTROLS. IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.
FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.

See how chill and non competitive your life gets when you don’t judge other girls in how they dress, do their make up, or how many selfies they take. Take a nap by a window, glow up

Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical. 

It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.

I have information about how I’m making it here! And a video about it here

i’m spending the day wrapped up in a big ol’ sweater, looking forward to the soup i’m going to make for dinner, so that means that i’m officially going to start promoting these AUTUMN FLOWER CROWNS again.

i love these lil guys but i think you would love them even more. 

the price has been reduced to $15, and every order will be followed up with a 10% off THANK YOU coupon!

these would make exceptionally cute additions to a Halloween costume, and are just terribly fun to wear around all the time.

buy ‘em here!
