Classic Men: What It Is Like To Be A Male Vintage Fashion Enthusiast.

I t has come to my attention that there are a lot of males who follow me and that they feel like I never pay attention to the male side vintage fashion. That’s because, well, I’m a woman. So I don’t know much about male fashion. I’ve also noticed that a lot of men shy away from dressing up because they feel like it somehow takes away from their masculinity. I don’t know why some men feel like if they wear a nice button up white shirt and tailored slacks that women will just assume they’re not attracted to the opposite sex. I find it’s quite the contrary. Many women (including myself) appreciate when you take the time to dress up and take care of yourself.

Growing up in Harlem, surrounded by Jazz, theater an

Call_me_lucille "I was taught by my mom to always be different. At the time, I just wanted to dress like all the other kids on the playground. But as  I got older, I realized dressing differently to others made me feel good and I started to relish in it. Every day becomes an occasion to dress up and it’s turned a mundane Monday into a catwalk show.I experimented with a lot of different eras, but I was drawn to a '50s/'40s way of dressing because it was the only era that fit my body shape and flattered it.

I interviewed her to get her style advice as she has impeccable style. Q: How did you start dressing in vintage fashion? A: “It all started five years ago when me and my best friend got into swing dancing at the age of 15. We instantly fell in love with the music from the 1930s-1940s.

Not Your Average Scientist: What It's Like To Be A Neuroscientist And A Pin-up Girl.

It is my mission to help women who major in STEM-related fields feel more represented. There’s this assumption that if you major in a STEM-related field that it has to become your entire identity. That you have to fit into the mold of what most people think a STEM major should be like. Male, simplistic style, and have no other interests except for the field you majored in. That assumption is what scares many women away from majoring in such fields. They feel like they would have to change who they are and part with all their other interests. But that’s simply not true. I spoke to Elisa ; a pink-haired cognitive genetics scientist who certainly does not fit into the mold of what most people think a scientist should be or look like. I asked her about her experiences as a pin-up in her field of work. Q: How did you know you wanted to become a scientist? A: "My brother was with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome; a genetic syndrome that causes severe mental, physical, and developmental impairm

Luxury purchases have always been something to strive for. What luxury means to each person does vary, but they certainly go a long way in making people happy. The year 2020 saw the value of the personal luxury goods market soar to 217 billion euros, a huge amount of cash. Again, what’s luxury to one may not be to another. You can pretty much sum up luxury as something you buy because you really want it, not because you need it. But why do people do it?
