House Of Alexzander
My Weakness is My Strength.

I don’t think much of anyone likes being vulnerable.
Speaking for myself however, I am quite accustomed to it.

But let me make something clear.
Being gender variant, non-binary, queer 
or even the fact that I was born with a traditional “male” body type
but wear many traditional “female” fashions such as the outfit above…..
none of these things are what make me vulnerable. 

I am vulnerable because I am openly & wholeheartedly myself.

I know that through a simple tumblr post, it might seem as if I make being yourself oh so easy. The truth is that I pay a very high price for my uncompromised freedom of expression.

Everything from my personal safety to the chance at a successful career is compromised by my decision to follow my heart, instead of following the crowd. However, this is really only the beginning of my sacrifice.

As my blog progresses and the number of individuals that are inspired by my personal freedom continues to grow, I must really think about the sacrifices I have had to make and will have to make in order to be so… free.

That is the purpose of this blog post.
To make everyone aware that personal freedom is as much of a blessing as it is a curse.

I will forever and always aspire to inspire the individual in humanity by being an example of a true individual. But I am choosing to also be transparent of the hardships that come along with the great adventures and satisfaction of my personal freedom. I feel it is the right thing to do, for by my mother, my teachers and my idols I was blindly taught to always be myself, but no one cared to mention the cost I would have to pay or the sacrifice I would be required to make.

I do not want to blindly lead the people who look up to me.
I want to inspire a kind of personal freedom that is not only fabulous,
But strong, courageous, truthful & positively life changing.

I worked extra hard on this photo set because I wanted it to catch the attention of all the amazing followers I have out there.
I love and appreciate all of you so much. Your messages and comments are the only thing that saves me from giving up because its easy to give up on myself, but I could never, ever give up on all of you.

Making Time.

Sometimes its hard to pull yourself away from your own world.
In fact, it only gets harder as you get older it seems.
But its important that you remember to stay interested in your friendships, even when you really don’t feel like being interested.
I know from personal experience how easy it is for friendship or even companionship to just fall through the cracks when everything on the surface is moving so quickly.

Time is such a nuisance because it slips away, and often it tends to take things like relationships with it.
But in relationships, time is everything.
So make time. 
Find time where ever & whenever you possibly can, 
because tomorrow the time you thought you had could be gone,
and your friendships gone with it.

Festival Wear.

A lot of you have been asking about what I might wear to warped tour and other music festivals & such. I hope I don’t disappoint, but honestly its gets to damn hot to be wearing a bunch of layers… or any layers for that matter.
Plus, I get all sweaty and I HATE sweat stains on my nicer close.

So, if you were to spot me & warped this is probably close to what I would be wearing.

Gender magician.

So I discovered another blog today that basically post all of my photos as their own and claims to be me, except there is one catch….

Instead of calling the blog House of Alexzander or giving out my name, the blog is called “Gender Magician” …

Not gonna lie, I kinda like the title. … a little.
I really don’t care that much that they steal my photos either. The point of my fashion photos are to be creative, inspirational & breakdown gender binaries so… hey, as long as those three things are still being encouraged through my work, fine. But it would be nice to get the recognition for MY work.

Anyways, I’m most curious to see how this individual is going to react when they come to steal this post. Lol.

So excited I found this individuals blog!!!!
They have great style and have found their own unique balance between masculine and feminine fashions. 

This is a great blog for anyone who’s body type is naturally curvy and soft, but would prefer to appear more dapper, but not entirely rugged.

Xoxo, I hope that makes sense!

Playful.

It was so beautiful today!
I decided to take a walk down town and visit the coffee shop for a pomegranate Izzy and just people watch.

A very relaxing day indeed.

Just wanted to share my outfit and remind everyone to be yourself! Remember to take time out for yourself and enjoy the little things!
