But you know what is great about being a queer gal or boi? Not giving a hoot about social norms around what “respectable ladies” are supposed to look like.
I’m intrigued by the ways that makeup can be both feminizing and masculinizing, often at the same time. As I started working on this project, I realized that’s been true for a long time.
Including Autostraddle’s own Lydia and A-Camper Magda!
I found everything I was looking for, except myself.
Blogger, stylish human and businesswoman extraordinaire Nicolette Mason wed her longtime partner Ali Talan at Wythe Hotel in NYC this weekend in what just might be the cutest gay wedding ever.
Fashion world, you’ve done us wrong and here are our demands.
As fun as fashion can be, there are many supposed “rules” to dressing your fine self. It’s something that makes getting outfitted a very overwhelming process; which of these laws should be followed? I’m going to let you in on a secret… You don’t need to listen to a single one.
Chill people unite: joggers are the new normal. Joggers live in the realm of clothes you wanna wear around the house during a Broad City marathon and keep wearing when you hit up the grocery store/ambiguous queer hangout/night out.
Black women at the helm of protests, fundraisers to support, gay marriage on tribal lands, Grace Ellis talking about Lumberjanes, the history of jeans in women’s protests, taking up space, a serial killer and the cops that didn’t give a fuck, sex workers, female engineers, rattlesnakes, nanoscale tubes, a dancing baby, the class divide, and so much more!
One of the best kept secrets of style is how to look “put together” with minimal effort. It’s something I’ve only recently come to understand, and it starts by building an arsenal of basic, goes-with-everything items. This sweet look is a perfect example of how simple and perhaps ordinary pieces can come together for a look that is sharp and pretty damn cute.
It’s of little surprise that the “oxford” or “brogue” has gained popularity in non-formal environments. Since many associate this shoe with school uniforms, itchy polyester and ill-fitting suits, it may be troublesome to find a way to incorporate lace-ups into a casual look. But wearing these bomb ass shoes is a breeze. I’m gonna show you how!
“Evan Rachel Would”? Damn right, Evan Rachel Would.
If you need me between now and late fall, you can find me poolside, roadside, on the metro, at work, laying in the bench in my bay window, and grocery shopping in the same silhouette: a crop top and high-waisted bottoms.
Meet the lawyer taking on Uber, does your dog look at you that way because she loves you?, the evolution of Laverne Cox, genderqueer maternity clothes, a mom live-tweets her son’s abstinence-only sex-ed class, toddler songs ranked by feminism, a history lesson, an econ lesson, the appropriation of black women’s hair and chola fashions, why you crack your knuckles, where Cream of Wheat came from, and so much more!
To say that I’m infatuated with denim may be an understatement. In the name of experimentation, I hooked up with ASOS to test drive some “of the moment” jeans from their Denim Bar.
This is the biggest, most amazing AAA that you’ve ever seen. You are not ready.
This is a great project for beginning sewists. I love the contrasting canvas, and the outside pocket is the perfect size for a smartphone. Give it a try!
Your queerness is just in you, feminist art, androgynous fashion by way of Casey Legler, the actuality of being a black trans woman, two marijuana things, K-Cups omg, Big Bird, Brittani Nichols is a genius as always, and so much more!
What to wear when it’s not quite warm enough for tank tops, but plenty warm enough to ditch the thermal underwear.
Evan Rachel Wood, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress and babely human, might have weekend cool mastered… #EvanRachelWould, indeed.
