Who are you and what is your passion?
Hi, my name is Lynsey, I am 31 years old and live in Florida. I am a part time Vegan who loves to cook, craft, DIY thangs, thrift, binge watch shows, meditate and hoard crystals. I am a lesbian and have built my platforms on sharing relatable lesbian content. I am passionate about aiding in building confidence in women, in and out of the community. I struggled a lot growing up with loving myself inside and out and searching for something I could elate to. If I could help uplift women in anyway I feel I have accomplished so much. I feel the lesbian community is so underrepresented it is social media alone that offers lesbian for the community to relate to. I recently launched my merch collection and I spent so much time designing product that the community would love. I just want to help fill the void of lesbian representation along with all the other amazing lesbians on the internet. <3
You have 60 seconds to put together an outfit. What do you wear?
I will always turn to an oversized T with biker shorts. Tall socks paired with some trainers.
Toped with some big hoops, chains & rings. Its easy and fast but always cute.
What's your #1 tip for putting together a cohesive look?
I try to always be mindful of the juxtaposition within my outfit. Baggy on top so tighter on the bottom. Mixing up fits, sizes, patterns, materials etc & always remembering to accessories. Oh, and black! Cant go wrong with all black!
In my eyes that’s what I look for when putting together a cohesive look.
I have also learned that the key to swag is confidence. You can have on the most “crazy” outfit but be confident AF and that shines through!
What's your current favorite article of clothing?
I thrifted this white men’s t-shirt in a size 4x that says “legends never die” with a picture of Tupac & Marilyn Monroe on it. I am obsessed! I always get compliments.
Also, My Prada re edition is my baby!!!!!
How does clothing fit into your every day life?
It took me a long time to find my personal style. What I wear is a direct reflection of how I am feeling that day.
What's a style or trend that you just don't understand? What's a style or trend you wish you could bring back?
Crocks is something I just cant get behind lol I don’t understand how this has become a fashion item.
I am so down for bell bottom jeans to come around. With a small crop top and some platform shoes! I am here for it!
(I hope low rise never comes back from the dead lol)
Who do you look at for fashion inspo or advice?
I grab inspo from so many different people, creating virtual mood boards and recreating outfits is how I was able to build my own style.
Some IG accounts I love for outfit insop are @hausofherry @kehlani @oamdanileigh @kekecameron @adriennebailon
Just to name a few
