And we cordially invite you to shop HauteButch! We are here for you.

Now let’s examine how to Dress for Dating, and how HauteButch can help you dress for success.

Question: What exactly is a “date,” anyway? 

(a)sweet oblong fruit of the tropical date palm tree   

(b) day of the week, month, year    

(c) occasion to “go out with” somebody, to court them  

Answer: all of the above, but we will focus on (c), the romantic option.

Particularly as tomboys, we dress for comfort. We dress for self-image. And we dress for social reasons: we clothe our bodies to communicate and to attract. Clothing emanates signals, and an HB outfit is a girl-magnet.

   Like peacocks, our colors flash flamboyant, especially when we are hunting for a date. Or a mate!

HauteButch offers fashionistas that flash, that flavor, that fever-pitch of gorgeous tomboy individualized style. If you want to signal HOT,assemble an ensemble from our broad and bold collection.

Note to BabyBoomers: You will relate to the following nostalgic section. In a nutshell, here’s how I’ve dressed for dating in my checkered lesbian career:

(dates approximate – around 1954) In my plaid flannel-lined dungarees, I fell in love with my third-grade teacher when she opened her Saturday apartment door holding a big paintbrush and wearing her husband’s big white shirt.

(1964) I dressed identically with my first beatnik BFF (R.I.P.): Mick Jagger olive green wide-wale corduroys and oxblood Bass Weejun penny loafers with emergency dimes in the slots.

(1967) With my first lover in college, I transgressed in my out-of-control hippie Janis Joplin hair, wrinkled red flannel shirt, baggy denim overalls and moccasins.

(1970) Every Saturday night, my religion was disco dancing (while smoking cigarettes and more) in skin-tight polyester shirts, off-white painter’s pants and platform sandals.

(skip to 1990) San Francisco head-to-toe black licorice leather, or Levi shrink-to-fit 501s, with holes in all the right places

(1994)Levi’s, sans the leather, and retro boy’s striped polo shirts

(2018) I discover HauteButch, boy clothes that fit girls’ bodies! Finally, I am Tailored. What you wear will get you noticed. Turn heads wearing HB’s women’s menswear. See and be seen. Be seen and be heard, in HauteButch. 

Oh, and we are standing by for your COMMENTS!

  1. I love this piece! I guess I AM a baby boomer for I relate to the timelines and the fashion attached to them in an extremely visceral/nostalgic way.

    Ms/Mx Losch, is that you in the little photo before the last paragraph? If so, you are adorable. Keep the good vibes coming. You have made your way into my GoodReads list.
