Wildfang

‘Where Tomboys call home’

Portland based clothing brand Wildfang are setting the tone for tomboy style, not only with their store but with their social media. Flawless Instagram pictures, outfit inspiring Tumblr posts and a slightly addictive, very entertaining blog.

Supplying us with clothing, shoes and accessories, there’s something for everyones taste and every occasion.

More importantly though, is the message behind the group.

Their About Us reads:

” Wildfang is not a brand. More specifically, we are a band of thieves
Modern-day, female robin hoods
raiding men’s closets and maniacally dispensing blazers, cardigans, wingtips and bowlers as we roam from town to town in these stolen styles of ours. Like you, we are tomboys but like you we are also friends and sisters, heroines and hellions, rascals, rockers, shapeshifters and trendsetters. 
We’re here to liberate menswear one bowtie at a time and we’re doing it ourselves because we want it done right. 
So, welcome 
It just so happens you’ve happened upon the front door of this revolution and the password is quite simply that look in your eyes.
You know the one, the one that says “please tell me I’m not late for the party?!” to which we’d reply: Hell, no. 
You’re right on time.

Our culture is yours. Be part of it. “

Views and styles are changing and these guys are at the forefront of fashions ever growing celebration of androgyny and self expression.

Kudos!

Fresh Start

Hey everyone!

So it’s been a while since I’ve written a post. Life got a bit crazy and I wasn’t sure what my path was going to be but I’ve ended back where I started, blogging and planning the future of MASJLondon.

Tomorrow I’ll start posting content again on all things androgynous, gender-fluid and tomboy, with a bit of a difference. Instead of just posting my own content, I’ll be bringing in some friends in to help.

If this is going to succeed, I can’t do it alone. Theres a lot I’m planning so I hope you’ll keep an eye out for it.

If you would be interested in taking part feel free to drop me a message at:

Samanthajeanprojects@gmail.com (temporary email)

I’ll be looking for fashion, news, music, art, business and well, pretty much anything else that can relate to androgyny. We have a supportive community in the androgynous world, I hope that the journey that is about to begin will create more than just a business, but a community.

Here’s to the future and never giving up!

Cheers,

Sam.

20 somethings, Give yourselves a break

Your 20’s are a confusing time. You’re not a kid any more, you’re not an adult yet. At least most of us don’t feel like one.

One thing I’ve noticed about 20 somethings is the worry. We worry about our relationships, our work, university, the future and quite often the past. We’re stuck in the middle ground between thinking we know everything (as most teenagers do) and realising we know nothing. The world seems chaotic and none of us fit in. It’s the time that we’re told we should be focused, have figured out what we’re doing with the rest of our lives and everyone seems one step ahead of us. We judge our success by comparing ourselves to our friends Facebook updates or grades on a piece of paper that we worked 3 years (at least) for.

I want to share a little secret.

Coming from someone who missed the memo that uni was essential, a self confessed trouble maker that can’t seem to follow instructions or do anything simply (But who is finally on the right track), ignore what you’ve heard.

It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing yet.
It’s okay if you’ve not done as well at something as you thought you would.

That’s life. It throws problems at you, not to ruin your plans but to teach you problem solving skills and toughen you up. This is what your 20’s are great for. It’s the time you stop relying on other people and start taking responsibility for yourself. You’re going to make mistakes and it might be bad, yes, but nothing is permanent and it’s never too late.

It’s okay to be selfish. Not the ‘run anyone down if they’re in my way’ selfish but the, ‘I need a few hours alone’ kind of selfish.

People will enter and leave your life and that’s okay.

You will outgrow people and people will outgrow you, it’s all a normal process.

I won’t give you advice of what to do or when to do it, that’s on you. Just give yourself a break. Worrying is normal. Growth involves struggle and your experiences will be good and bad but you are learning.

The one thing I will say is take every opportunity you’re presented with, never stop learning and never stop asking questions.

Ageing is inevitable, growing old is a choice.

Zara Man – Rucksacks – Top 3

Zara is where I go to dream.
Be it the women’s or the men’s.
One thing I’ve noticed is that Zara Man have a beautiful selection of bags.

Today I thought it would be a good idea to have a look at some casual (but beautifully smart at the same time) pieces.

So here is my top 3 pick of Zara rucksacks:

Rubberised rucksack – £39.99

Fabric backpack – £39.99

Minimalist rucksack with hand strap – £39.99

The minimal design and the fabrics they use create elegant, classic bags.
The quality is (from my experience with the bags) great.
You don’t have to lose style wearing a rucksack, you just have to find the right one for you.

Hope you like the look of these beauties!
Happy Tuesday :)

Topman Top Picks – Watches

Topman – Watches

Topman is great for watches. Ranging from £15 – £25, they’re a bargain, good quality (I’ve owned a few for over a year and they’re still perfect) and they’re gorgeous!

Textured smart leather watch – £20.00

It’s simple but beautiful. Devoid of any colours except the ticking hands which stand out as bright blue.
No numbers and no logos mean it stays true in all forms to its minimal feel.
Comfortable and modern.

Square rubber strap watch – £18.00

Completely black and silver, this watch has a darker but still minimal feel.
The square body makes it perfect for smarter occasions and the black makes it easy to pair with just about any outfit.
Having a rubber strap makes for a comfortable wear and again, the lack of logos or numbers adds to the simple and modern feel.

http://www.topman.com/en/tmuk/product/shoes-and-accessories-1928527/watches-140530/square-rubber-strap-watch-2599056?bi=1&ps=20

It’s always good to shop around for your bargain accessory finds. There are accessories that men can wear in the women’s section and vice versa, you’ve just got to look!

Happy exploring :)
