Yup, that’s what this blog is going to be about. Well add to that food, fitness, masculine cosmetics, sometimes even cars and other manly type things that butch/boi/andros types that I will refer to as Dandi’s, like me always grew up loving.
When I was a little girl I was actually more like a little boi. Even at a very young age I identified with all things masculine; from Tonka Trucks to crafting model cars and motorcylce’s. And though I was never very athletically inclined, more of an artist type, I do love sports. Which brings me to why a person like me, who hates to workout, will be including fitness in this blog from time to time. Because I know a lot of us compensate for our stature with size and weight. As we all get older we need to consider the risks of being too overweight, it’s not worth a heart attack or breast cancer to maintain a less girlie figure. We can shape our bodies to fit our clothes better and look better to our own eyes without clothes with some simple daily efforts. So use them or not but take care of your health no matter what.
My love of masculine fashion, accessories, products and interior design is not about materialism for me. It’s about self expression. If it weren’t for clothes no one would really know how I feel on the inside. Thanks to suits, ties and masculine accessories people can understand me and treat me more like I feel right off the bat.
So what is the baby part of this? I originally came up with the name as what I want to be called by my ‘in the future’ children that my ‘high fashion mama’ and I are planning to have. I am androgynous. I don’t really consider myself butch and couldn’t qualify as feminine if I tried but whenever a femme calls me sir out of respect I have to say it doesn’t ring true. So Baba is a name that I will encourage our children to call me and the preppy part comes from the joy I have for creating style with color and whimsy. I do plan to lean heavily into my experience of starting a family and the joys and triumphs of the journey but I will also continue to try and help Dandi’s of the world in creating their own style.
Well that about sums it up. I will post trends as often as I can and try to give ideas and tips. We will see where this blog goes but my main purpose is to have fun and give my Dandi community the love and care we never got when going through our own puberty and certainly don’t get when shopping in the men’s department of most stores. I hope you learn something, can find some new looks and develop your own style from what you see here for both your home and your wardrobe.
