Sexualized Masculinity : Boy Meets Girl

Masculinity (also called maninity, manlinessor manhood) is a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles generally associated with boys and men. Masculinity is socially constructed, but made up of both socially-defined and biologically-created factors.This makes Theyit distinct from the definition of the biological male sex,[ as both men and women can exhibit masculine traits.

Traits traditionally cited as masculine includecourage, independence, andassertiveness,though traits associated with masculinity vary depending on location and context, and are influenced by a variety of social and cultural factors.The counterpart to masculinity is femininity.

Women’s fashion has ventured off into men’s wear. It is important to incorporate the ying and the yang factor when attempting this look. A meticulous merger of men’s tailoring and a woman’s sex appeal is the best way to create a stylish synergy. A simple suggestion: Men’s fit trousers and blazer feminized by a silk button-front blouse. This is a transitional look is made day time chic  when coupled with a pair of oxfords while also working well for a night on the town when heightened by 5″ heels. The day version of this look works well with long, lean figures. Less lengthy women should opt for the latter. Heels will give more petite women a more masculine height. Also, try a slim fit pant with a mens shirt. This works well for all body types. Literal accents can add style but choose wisely. There is a fine line between couture and costume!

Suggestions: untied bow tie, draped tie, classic hat, cuff links, handkerchief, or suspenders.

 

Want to really make a statement!……. Try sleek, pulled back hair for a more complete look.

InstaSize_2015_0 _ 1696

The before picture is of my hair in a natural damaged state. I dyed it twice within 24hours and its over processed and brittle to the max. I hate doing hair, im not a hair person at all. Ive been wearing braids for years and finally decided to dye it and wear it natural…. boy was I wrong. The dye and lack of care has destroyed my hair. Yes its just hair but I don’t like it shedding like a dog lol. This year i vowed to be dedicated to taking care of my hair as much as my body and soul

LOVE : My Favorite Couples of 2014

LOVE : The most spectacular,indescribable, deep euphoric feeling for someone. 

Love is an incredibly powerful word. When you’re in love, you always want to be together, and when you’re not, you’re thinking about being together because you need that person and without them your life is incomplete.

Rather they are high profile or super low key , which I feel is best when you in the limelight cause ppl will tire you down quicker than support you. All of these couples stand out to me , like when I see a pic of them or watch a interview with one talking about the other I can feel the love. We all know just like any relationship aint none thats perfect but what’s perfect is when you don’t give up when the road gets rough.

I love how Monica caters to Shannon! How Savannah has unconditionally been holding the crown since high school. Beyonce still works endlessly being married to a successful man that match her hustle. Karrueche in my opinion is the definition of LOYAL. Meagan is proof you never just a book by it’s cover. Chrissy rides super hard for her man Jimmy. Keri keeps her man smiling so we know she’s doing her job.

All these ladies possess a trait I would love to mimic in my future relationship. In a industry filled with ceo and management fixed relationships to gain popularity …. I feel these are real and pure.
