Well hello friends! How are we all today?
It’s Saturday and it’s been a difficult week for me. Hopefully you guys are doing better! For today’s post, we’re revisiting the Boyfriend Bi-Monthly for some Rosie the Riveter style!
If you’re confused what The Boyfriend Bi-Monthly is, you can find the last one here. It’s basically where my boyfriend dresses me! But it’s a fun way of playing with my wardrobe in a new way, instead of constantly wanting more clothes I can’t afford.
Rosie The Riveter Style
Whereas last time The Boyfriend® had a bad gal vibe going on, this time he had a clear idea in mind. Rosie The Riveter style. Ever the feminist icon, it was quite an interesting exercise to recreate her look with what I had in the house. It’s slightly less factory-standard than Rosie’s outfit, but the essence of it is pretty clear, don’t you think?
Of course, I had to add a little feminist flair in the styling — have I ever mentioned how much I adore this Punky Pins pin? I have a coaster on my bedside table like this, too, which reminds me to empower other women on the daily.
I realised whilst editing these photos just how great this little feature was — mostly because I’d realised that this is how my boyfriend sees me. Rosie was a sign of female strength in the war, and has spent the last few decades inspiring new waves of feminism and women’s rights activism. And is, in his words “a straight up badass”. And he chose a recreation of this strength and badassery for me because he thinks I embody it, right? There’s nothing more flattering than that.
What do you guys think of his choice?
Let me know in the comments, as always!
