Boy Fashionista

Hi everybody: I'm a guy who likes fashion and hopes to be a fashion writer.  I stumbled on this site accidentally, and fell in love with it. Since I joined, I have found  everyone to be fabulous--so accepting and non-judgmental. And that's been really special because it's not always been easy being a fashion-oriented boy who's into stuff girls like and isn't really very boyish.

Why do People Think Fashion is Silly?

I know nobody here would ever think fasion is silly, but has anyone ever asked you,"Why do you waste all that time on fashion and makeup. It's so silly?" My younger sister Julia is always telling me how dumb it is for me to spend all m time and money on clothes and hair and fashion magazines and stuff. Fashion is just frivolous." She knows I love to write and want to be a fashion writer and she's like, "Why don't you write about serious things, rather than clothes and stuff."


Now I know that beauty is not the only important thing and that fashion should be fun (and maybe even a little frivoulous), I mean everyone here knows how much fun it is to shop and find some cute top or jeans (and even more fabulous if they're on sale "p) or to come across a totally awesome new nail polish color. And it should be fun. But why should people run down what we like when they think what they do is so wonderful


So I told her that I think it's silly that she plays sports all the time. I mean kicking and throwing a ball seems frivolous and pointless to me. :D But she says that sports make you stronger because you work to win or lose so they're not silly. But I'm not very competitive and could care less about winning some stupid game. So we never settle the argument.


But I just though of the best answer to those misinformed people who think fashion is silly. I think fashion is an art, just like painting and sculpture. Think of a beautiful flowing dress on a gorgeous model and it's like a great painting to me. A beautiful poufy skirt looks cute while a pencil skirt is beautiful but more serious. Fashion mags have wonderful colors and great pictures that show that fashion is truly art. But not only are clothes artistic, so are hairstyles. A great style is like a sculpture and a stylist is like a sculptor. The way a stylist works with texture and color to produce beautiful styles. is truly artistic. Lastly, who can deny that makeup is an art too. Picking the right colors for each individual face requires a makeup artist to know both his art and the person. It's so challenging. Nothing silly about it. So if people say fashion is silly, theyre also saying that Michelangelo, Degas, Matisse and all the other great artist were just silly too.


So if anyone ever calls u silly or frivolous for loving fashion, just tell them you appreciate all kinds of artistic expression and fashion is one of them.And have fun with fashion too, but think of it as art and we all are the artist's models.


BTW, I love my sister even if she is a tomboy :D But she'll never read this because she would never come to BG, so you can talk about her if u want.:p


xoxoxox to all fashionistas,
