Please comment on this one!

Ok before I say too much… just look at this and decide if you think this is a good look for a lesbian.

Alright, now that you have decided let me tell you more about it. I started with this base layer,

Just a cream colored shirt, black levi jeans, and a beautiful necklace courtesy of my girlfriend.

For accessories I have a bulova watch with a hairband and cat scratch. Hairbands are the universal lesbian club bracelet and cat scratches mean VIP member.

Now… my grey Clark’s desert boots and a $5 thrift shop sweater. What?? A thrift shop find post? Yes. Stuff you find in thrift shops can be very similar to the stuff you find in Urban Outfitters. The main difference is about $80.

What made this item stand out to me was it’s shades of blue pattern. It kind of looks like a grandma sweater with how it’s woven pattern. On the other hand, it’s cut is like a motorcycle jacket. I can’t do leather motorcycle jackets, personally. It’s too over the top butch for me, especially because I’ve never so much as rode on a moped. But having that style as a sweater? Let’s try it out. Here are some more pics so you be the judge and let me know if this was a good look or a total flop.

My mom hates this sweater

A Koto sweater! It’s loud and fun. It’s a men’s xs.

image

It is thick, heavy, and probably the most durable thing you can get in terms of knitted sweaters. It’s deep red, blue, and orange on the collar, button placket (button line), and pockets -white and black elsewhere. VERY soft. You can wear it with something traditional to balance out its loudness. If you never wear anything like this, consider starting. They are conversation starters and make you look approachable. If this sweater is too much you can try a loud shirt and cover it with a solid color sweater … just leave it unbuttoned to still show the pattern. I’ll post something like that later this week.

What do you think?

Koto flannel

Drumroll please… the Koto flannel!! It’s a men’s shirt but fits me nicely with no tailoring! So I have 3 Uniqlo women flannels, which fit nicely. But, women’s shirts typically fit me a little light tight around the back, shoulder, and arms while men’s shirts are tight around the chest and hips. This XS size Koto flannel has none of these issues going on. Check it out!

I’m too shy to show my eyes I guess

While I’m on the topic (of how I hate how women’s shirts are tight around my shoulders), they really constrict my ability to move. Not only that but they are shorter and let cold air up easier. When twisting around swinging my arms in the fitting room, and complaining in a women’s shirt, my old roommate and fashion guru used to say… why in the world would you need to reach and move your arms like that? Um! What is if have to pick up a big pumpkin.. or scrape ice of a windshield.. or cut down a tree? Men’s clothes are practical which I like which can also include warmer. To the straight girls reading this… consider it! 🙂

Another sweater outfit

I’m gonna wear sweaters like there is no tomorrow

Here is the cream colored O’Hanlon Mills sweater I referred to earlier. This one is a small.

image

I’m wearing them with my charcoal Corduroys and brown leather Clark’s.

image

The pants are j crew matchsticks and I really really like how they fit. Watch how well I can move while trying to capture my cat with a selfie stick.

This was taken a few days ago with my levi 712s… the sweater in action with some sunlight-ish:

Ok, ONE fall outfit

Let’s say you hate fashion but I keep showing up on your feed so much that you think, “okay, fine -I give. What’s one thing I should consider adding to my wardrobe this fall?” Here it is:

1. Dark blue levi’s slim 712 cut jeans

2. A plaid shirt and a cream or grey shirt with brown buttons

3. Clark’s brown leather boots

4. A shawl collar sweater.

You can wear these clothes everyday of the week and it might be after 20 days that someone realizes you only have two shirts. They are the perfect amount of blending in while still looking like you know what you are doing / looking good. The shawl collar sweater is clutch because you can wear a sweater everyday and no one thinks you are a pig pen. Everyone thinks you are changing the shirt underneath everyday when in reality there may not be one. Everyone should have a go to outfit that they know they can pull off all season long without thinking about it. This is it.

This sweater is a men’s xsmall from J. Crew. And, as always, those are the levi’s.

Colors 2?

Hey everyone! You may have run across a peice of clothing that was so good you wanted it in every color. Then you might have wondered if that was a good idea. I’m here to give my opinion: I think so!

I think finding clothes for lesbians can be especially difficult. You walk into the average store and 95% of the women’s clothes are too feminine and 95% of the men’s clothes don’t fit. So if you find something that you actually like I say, go for it! It doesn’t happen often enough.

My one tip I have about that refers back to the colors guide I wrote. Seasons have different colors associated with them and if you wear a color that compliments your surroundings’ color then it makes you look a little easier on the eyes. That being said, if you buy two colors of the same product, go for colors in different seasons. This strategy will allow you to wear the peice of clothing that you love at different times so its not as obvious to others that you are always wearing the same item, and is not too over repetitive to you either.

The obvious example of this are plain t shirts or jeans, but can also be used with chinos, shoes, and all sorts of other things.

Here are my examples. First a women’s north face jacket. Loose fitting but not overly baggy… I’m in love. Got a fall and spring color.

Next I love Clark’s desert boots because they come in men’s sizes 6 and 6.5. They also come in women’s sizes and are cheaper in women’s without losing any quality. Sad part is I have wide feet lol. Anyway love them so much I got a dark gray and a light gray. I know it’s hard to tell the seasonal difference in the picture but when paired with pants the difference really shows.

Anddddd now I’ll wear them to highlight everything I just said. I think one looks naturally more like spring while the other looks like autumn, so it gives the look a break (over winter) and brings it back in a way that works. What do you think? Hope you found this slightly interesting!  🙂
