ALPHA FEMALES





WEARING:American Apparel Turtleneck Crop Top + High Waist Jeans, Oak + Fort Flowing Trench Coat, Alexander Wang Marion Bag and Converse High Tops.

I am sure that you have heard the expression - Alpha Male before, but I am glad to say there is also an equivalent to that : The Alpha Female. I like to think that I am in this category. It is not easy to carry on in this exclusive (but growing) niche. People either think you are mean or just plain Cruella. I don't mind the stereotyping though. An Alpha Male is usually associated with power and authority, however when it is used about a female, the connotation is often quite on the other side of the spectrum. 

But fear not, be yourself, let others think whatever they want to think and carry on. Do it with self confidence, assertiveness, work hard, and utilize your intelligence to be more than just a witch. If you are anything like me, you will chase down your dreams and stay close to your true friends. When someone is hating on you, take that as a compliment, it just means they are intimidated by you or they don't know you at all. Don't feel the need to apologize to anyone who doesn't realize the talent or work ethic that you possess.

    To add: there is a saying, "What others think of you is none of your business." When you consider this, it rings true.

  8. There' nothing wrong iwth being assertive and knowing what you want - it just seems we make it that way! I dunno why women are perceived as mean or bitchy and men it's just accepted. I love that shot of your shoes and these high waisted jeans - very modern and chic on you

  9. Love this post. Such wise words and they really make one's mood better :) I totally agree - the most important thing is doing what you love! On other note, I wish I was able to wear crop tops now. Unfortunately it's still freezing here! www.moiminnie.blogspot.com x

  13. This is so true Melissa! I hate that any woman that knows what she wants & isn't afraid to go out & get it is considered to be a bit of a bitch or domineering, whereas with men it's a good thing. I think it's becoming more & more accepted though, I know a lot of alpha females!
    This outfit is beautiful as usual, the trench is so lovely & you can never go wrong with high tops, love the jumping shot! :)

  19. There's definitely a double standard when it comes to strength/assertiveness in men versus the same qualities in women. And it needs to be acknowledged in order for it to be changed.

    Great post. Great outfit as always. x

  42. I could not agree with you more, keep working hard and developing your talents. who cares about what others have to say, they should just be more concerned with themselves anyway.
    your trench is absolutely beautiful, and I was actually planning on wearing a very similar outfit - my diy white jeans and a cropped turtleneck. as always, on the same wave ;)
