Queer and trans women of color living life, how to pet a cat, women punching people, grownup tomboy style, Everyone IS Gay, Brittani Nichols made them all that way, you can buy music, the Trans 100, abortions, a shitbag man got fired, poison, #pdxcarpet, turtles, marijuana, what I’m wearing this weekend.
This year, rather than scoffing at the isle of misfit sweaters and hats no one wants to play reindeer games in, I challenge you to embrace the hideousness. Allow yourself to lower your guards to the bright reds, greens, silvers, and blues and really snuggle into some ugliness.
Now I know that a burning log of wood on a TV screen doesn’t bring the same warmth as a real, live fireplace but there is something oddly comforting about watching a loop of a fire for a solid 4 hours. You can grab some cookies, whip up some boozey eggnog and catch up with pals. Or just take a nap. What exactly does one wear to sit still for a solid afternoon? I’m glad you asked.
DapperQ has partnered with Brooklyn Museum to present an evening of dapper style!
What do you get someone who has knack for Kanye-esque levels of style? Don’t you worry, I got you covered.
My knees look like I’ve been crawling around in the fireplace. My lips are so dry you could peel off a layer and roll a joint in it. I’m itchy as hell y’all, but thankfully, I have an arsenal of products to keep me whet as a whistle.
Pumpkin everything is the highlight of my autumn, but as you may well know it’s also the center of a lot of unnecessary girl hate. Demonizing girls for liking pumpkin flavored things is silly, so let’s snuggle up by the fireplace celebrate with a pumpkin spice smokey eye.
Something truly wonderful is happening. Cosmetic companies are expanding their lipstick colors beyond the standard red-orange-pink-purple-burgundy spectrum and into the land of black, yellow, green and blue lipstick.
My resistance to the chill of winter eventually gives way to the realization that I can wear my trusty sweaters again — here are four ways to look great doing it.
The League of Ladies was “born from a dissatisfaction of the portrayal of female superheroes and disempowering slogans on contemporary underwear.” The lookbook celebrates four historical heroines, including Frida Khalo and Harriet Tubman modelled by “real-life superheros” who embody and reflect the traits of the superheroines they are wearing.
For me, the beginning of Autumn means a bit of a closet assessment. I take it as a chance to visit old friends — hi, fuzzy granddad cardigans — and also figure out what no longer works/what I’ll ideally be wearing all season.
Vintage inspired, cheeky and plain ol’ fun, get set for a dapper femme tux set (jacket + trousers) and the sweetest pink frock I ever did see outside of a 1950’s prom.
Dressing up like your favorite comic-inspired character is one of the best things about Halloween.
Picking your own personal style can be hard enough when you’ve got years of practice, so what’s a woman supposed to do when she’s jumping right in?
Some important looks for Spring/Summer 2015 in no particular order: sheer stripes, mechanics’ suits, Chuck Taylors, lemon yellow, white cornflower blue and co-ordinates/suiting.
When I’m shopping for things that might be professional attire, I think it’s less soul-crushing when said items have cute animals on them, OR when I can sneak in accessories with cute animals on them.
Hold your horses, unicorns, and angry pack of wolverines — there’s more to this campaign than you may first assume.
Co-founder and photographer Gia Goodrich aims to empower women to feel beautiful no matter their gender expression or personal identity.
The term “brunch style” does not automatically imply a specific level of formality. My suggestions would depend on the occasion (Meet the parents brunch? Wedding brunch? Date brunch? Hungover with your friends brunch? Autostraddler meet-up brunch? Hip-hop party brunch?) and the venue (Five star restaurant? Pub? Trendy café?).
Alright. You’ve found the brunch meet-up in your city, you are super excited to eat (and eat and eat) but one MAJOR thing stands in your way. You. Still. Need. To. Get. Dressed.
