I love beauty and fashion trends.

I fully admit that loads of them can be ridiculous, but that has officially never once stopped me from wearing mud-colored lipstick or parading around in a series of ill-advised bell-bottom jeans. 

I'm a woman, and I don't dress for men. 

I dress for myself, and from time to time, for the benefit of the women around me.

I play around with trends as a way of expressing myself, so I usually can't be bothered to avoid trends guys hate.

But that doesn't mean I don't know exactly which trends guys hate.

Because while some guys don't have a clue when it comes to fashion, sometimes their eye for what's ridiculous is totally on point.
