recently copped a pair of jeans, they are called "trouser jeans" and have a nice wide cuffed leg. vintage gap from unique thrift.
then I treated myself to a Save the Queen dress on ebay.
finally I got basketball shoes because my old ones have lost their sole. secondhand bron soldiers.
after not having bought clothes since July
except a fundraising t-shirt for a harm reduction group here
which now seems very ironic

~Ode to my vests~
I love vests on femme bodies, especially alone on skin.
It took awhile for me to find vests that didn't look too suburban mom or too Hot Topic. Here are my two:
Love the multiple pockets, the color fading, the side tabs, the weight. Sarah Connor without being over the top (imo).
The heavyweight linen and the extra large bow in back are the big sells for me on this one. Also the halter, the xl snaps, and the looseness of the fit. It's quite sexy to me without losing its androgyny.

Up next: one-pieces. Currently I have two but a few in storage that might return to the fold. This also excludes what I call my "fantasy closet" which has a few formal and insane dresses.
This one was not going on the mannequin for whatever reason. It's a stiff but lightweight cotton and features zippers up the front and back (the back one is hidden and frankly I'm not sure why it's needed). My favorite is the giant cargo pockets with triple-snap closures on either side. The neck strap is a nice touch too. I'd been looking for a militaristic (stolen valor alert) dress for some time and finally found this one for $14.
Wrap tops/dresses are some of my favorites; very sexy but not overtly femme. This is a nice midweight stretch jersey cotton. The sleeves are loose and hang like an oversized t-shirt. They can be pulled off the shoulders and they fit layers underneath really nicely. Subtle ruching on the side gives a bit of shape without coming off as form-fitting.
