What does Masculine mean to me?
Growing up as a Tomboy in the 1950s — 1960s was an interesting time to make this journey. It helped that my Dad, a Design Engineer and my Mom, thought it was pretty cool to have a capable Tomboy girl who spent time helping Dad in his shop and fetching tools for him as he design or built something new for his clients. It was a great time of learning about tools, building techniques and other capabilities that supported my growing masculine skills and spirit that are part of my heart & soul.
Today, I live into my masculinity from a place of self-confidence. It feels good to fully accept my dominant strengths and celebrate that forever Tomboy that is truly part of who I am. Many years ago I made a conscious decision to wear men’s clothing for comfort and style. Truth is I love wearing masculine clothes, especially dress up clothes with suits and tie’s and the opportunity to attend Black Tie events where I can proudly wear a tuxedo, often with a custom made corsage to ad a little flair. As a maturing Tomboy I am excited about my purchase from Saint Harridan, a great clothier making clothes carefully designed to fit us Tomboy’s.
