Pants on Top

Yaaaay PAX AUS is coming and I need a new guild pride shirt. I wore a purple Epic Pants one last year, but this year it’s all about the black, so a new shirt is go:

One of the trickiest things about buying clothes outside of your expected gender is navigating a whole other world of cuts. Weirdly, men’s pants/shorts fit me fairly well straight off the rack. This seems totally counter-intuitive, given that I have been amply provided in the hip/booty department. What I find men’s items are missing though is stretch fabrics and flat fronts. Everything in life should be stretch fabrics. Just saying.

Anyway, the awesome side to a bit of genderfluidity is being able to buy whatever looks like it might work from either gendered section.

I thought these could potentially work well:

I Never Learn

I lament sometimes about that troublemaker Past Mali, and how she is always screwing me over (never getting enough sleep, running up HECS debts, spending all her pay). Sometimes she tries to be helpful, and sends me advice from the past through the blog – don’t buy any more denim skirts, stop buying Docs.

However, it seems Present Mali is just as belligerent and her predecessor.

Behold, gorgeous, on sale Docs:

If I can break these ones in successfully, it’s going to pave the way for the most amazing sexy Doc boots I have ever seen. Keep tuned …

Cyber Essentials

My awesome Dad has a theory that anything that is advertised as ‘essentials’ is always the furthest from essential.

This neck cowl is expensive, has ridiculous shipping and serves no practical purpose, but I really want it! It will add a wicked cyber element to any outfit. Shhh, I’ll buy what I want.

Pro Pants

After several years of not wearing pants, the pendulum has swung soooo far the other way. The floral dresses are going into storage (I bought vacuum bags), and I’m actively buying pants and shorts. These look very cool:

Bite this

Puppy KEEPS EATING SHOES. It’s making things difficult.

These are a tad more girl than is to my taste atm, but I think I can live with them. Also, Planet Shoes are very comfy and this was a good end-of-season sale price.

Top Love

So, turns out you can’t combine items from Topshop and Topman into one order.

Bit annoying when you have to spend £50 to get free shipping and you’re a bit genderfluid atm. Oh well.

Top I like a lot:

Fisherman Kink

I forget how it happened, but it turns out I have a thing for fisherman. Like this:

I asked Sven if he was opposed to this. He said no. I’m going to fill his wardrobe with stripey t-shirts, cable-knit jumpers and beanies. This is the start:

Also, this is pretty cyber and I think it might repel corgi fur. (Pro tip: crepe fabric also repels dog hair)

Punk Lady

The ‘nice lady’ persona seems to have been shoved off the bus by the ‘young punk’ (as Sven dubs the current look). I can keep several of my multiple personalities happy with this tartan skirt:

Scifi Nerdcore

I wore my Star Trek ‘ships of the fleet’ shirt the other day and didn’t get one ‘Live long and prosper’ :(

Gonna take my Nerdcore underground with a Blade Runner reference. I also like that it’s a subtle ‘fuck off’ to everyone else.
