I have tried countless times to dress girly girl with the dresses and stockings or skirts and nice blouses with nice shoes. Or the casual wear with tight jeans or pants with nice blouses or t-shirts with sneakers. But yet people keep asking or telling me I look like a man.

I wear make up, cut my hair in cute ways, etc. But yet this keeps happening. I don't know why but it just does.

I can't tell about your body shape from the photos. Do you have slightly broader shoulders? The outfit you are wearing, isn't the best option for you for sure. It doesn't show off your shape at all.

We can give you all kinds of recos about "feminine" clothing, but it matters little if when you are wearing it, it doesn't feel like "you!"

I don't think I do, but people say I do. And again I have worn the feminnie clothing and people STILL SAY IT.

Get yourself some contacts or some trendy lighter colored frames you're in L.A. go to one of those Galleria stores and get fitted for another pair or some colored contacts. And..in the picture, you're still dressed kind of preppy or unisex. Slightly formfitting clothes in soft colors and fabrics are feminine, as is delicate jewelry and well manicured nails. When in doubt, hi thee hither to one of the mall stores like Nordstrom's and ask for some advice in the clothing department and the makeup department.

I don't think you look like a man. But the outfit on the pictures makes you look older and is not very flattering.
Don't listen to people, they are just being mean. Be yourself! Maybe the girly girl clothes you are talking about are just not "you".

Get the hair out of your eyes first, clothes that fit properly are the best way to no matter what your body shape. I don't mean "tight" clothing I mean a sweatshirt like you have on but maybe one or two sizes smaller so it isn't so baggy on your body. As far as the makeup goes either use just foundation and mascara or find someone who can teach you how to apply make up for you properly and I would use a darker lip color, a more earthy tone.

One more VERY IMPORTANT thing is to go to an actual "Bra Shop" and be fitted properly for a bra, you will be amazed what a properly sized bra that actually holds the twins like they should can do for your body and your self esteem.

Are you really 25? You look much older, perhaps it's the way you're dressed in the picture. If you normally wear feminine clothes and make-up there's not much more you can do to look "girly". Some people are just mean and like to put others down, it's best to just ignore them (especially if they're trolls on the internet)

The pictures are of you in jeans in what looks to be a scene of setting up for xmas. Not a "girly girl" setting. You are dressed for working around the house.

How about some photos in a dress or something like you are going out for dinner?

I don't think you look manly. I'm not sure why you would such shapeless cloths for your pic? Between hair in your face and the glasses, plus the shapeless clothes can't really tell much about you at all.
