1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The "kind you want" are ugly anyway, so knock yourself out. I don't know why you felt the need to bring this up.

    Even if your market are lesbian/bisexual girls, you still CAN'T get anyone you want within that demographic. I may agree if you say a large number of them.
    Anyways, to achieve that level you may need some fashion advise, and I think this is why you were here for, so let's get you back on topic.

    You're a likable kid. Hope you stick around.

    I would try a little old school. Tailored suits with blousy shirts, extremely nipped waist, wide double pleated pants.

    Think Thin White Duke.

    I have been missing a very interesting thread here.

    I just want to say welcome VanBurnham.

    You obviously are accustomed to living in an 'undefined zone' which makes many people quite uncomfortable.

    May I suggest that footwear is one of the primary 'gender determinants' of fashion? I wonder which directions you are leaning in this regard.

    Accessories are another obvious item that can be used to either clearly indicate gender or blur the lines according to your choosing.

    Do you find you need assistance with understanding what would constitute 'proper' men's clothing - as many here would be very helpful in that regard. I think even if you are choosing not to follow the conventions knowing what they are might be helpful.

    - G.

    Left, I like what you are thinking... those pictures are similar to what I have in mind. Maybe just a few minor adjustments to reflect our decade and I think it's about perfect =)
    Most of my shoes are unisex, I have lots of Toms, Vans and such. I do have some men's dress boots from Magnani that I paid over $300 for a few years ago... I haven't worn them in years, but they are probably the most favorite pair of shoes i've ever had. They have a nice click to the heel when you walk. Also, a lot of my accessories are unisex, I have a unisex silver bracelet that was hand carved from one of Alaska's top silversmith that I picked up in Sitka, Alaska... set me back quite a bit. I can also carry my diamond studs over too, especially since they are square and not round... but my other jewelery I will probably give to my sister... should cover a few birthdays/christmas's =)




    That is an excellent link... thank you so much. I am in love with this girl from the link you sent me (i think she's a girl), and this is a look I could easily pull off (minus the cigarette).
