V MAN 2012, photo by josh olins

i recently came across this men’s editorial and it has been incessantly swimming through my mind. i find the photos very modern and the styling effortlessly exquisite. this editorial is for V MAN 2012 photographed by Josh Olins. i find these images to be effortlessly chic. i am very inspired by boys fashion, and particularly find skater and surfer styles extremely influential in my style and fashion in general.

i always find myself to be stealing clothing from my brothers closets (whenever i have the chance to go home) and casually throwing on their large cashmere sweaters and tee’s. i find girls in men’s gear very sexy and thrown together (ofcourse in a nonchalant way. styling should look subtlety put together, to look as though there was no thought at all. which is the way i like to practice my craft even,when i am dressing myself.I put random things together that somehow end up creating a ‘look’ here are some images that really spark me to shop in the boys departments or snagging frocks from my brothers..past boyfriends / current ones …etc

r ather then explaining the ways i dress i figured i might as well show you. generally, and not to be rude to those of you who blog their outfits, i think the whole think is a bit ego maniacal and silly. at least the act of doing so (for me). anyways i have found many of you bloggers out their to have very interesting tastes and decided i might as well show the way i dress myself. you can see that i am really not in to the whole taking photos of myself (the blurry and out of focus shots, and the long face…). ok so hopefully these photos will progress in time. now..my version of tom boy.
