At times I wish I was born a boy.
This is in no way shape or form an expression of my unhappiness as a female, might I add. If, at times, I’m held back by my gender in certain arenas of life, I full-heartedly accept and embrace that. I’ve even been known to be a bit of a feminist.
But, all that being said, my mind does wander at times.
Whether dabbling in the inconsistencies and irritations of dating new people or just struggling to be seen as an equal in the business scene, I sometimes wonder at how much easier life would be if I had just one additional appendage.
And as much fun as it is to be a woman, to get dressed up in bows and tulle and pearls and to gallivant around the world without a care, it irritates me at the particular advantages men have in life – particularly in business.
And since my life, and my goals, surround business and entrepreneurship, I simply have no choice but to work longer and harder to overcome these (sometimes seemingly insurmountable) walls. I once dated someone who refused to see the difference between men and women in business, and while I can certainly appreciate a spoonful of “equality” here and there, this caused a string of fruitless arguments. “There ARE differences!” I’d proclaim incessantly.
But, instead of becoming bitter at what is really just my own birthright, I’ll instead turn this (potentially pointless) mind-wandering into appreciation. And what better way to do that than to turn men’s clothing into unisex clothing?
This is precisely what I’ve done with the Frank and Oak numbers you see here. Why? Because their warehouse sale was simply too good to pass up. So I scoured the place for the XSmalls and, hurray, I’m now a girl dressed fabulously in boys clothing.
Whether you’re a boy, a girl wishing to be a boy, or a girl shopping for a boy, you should definitely check out their warehouse sale happening in Vancouver until Sunday at 555 W. Broadway. FYI – that’s on Broadway between Ash and Cambie.
