Work + drinks.

Even on the days where I sloppily apply makeup, run all the way to the el, and scarf my breakfast on the train, this cardigan makes me feel like a lady. There's something to be said for clothing that makes you feel pulled together when you're a tranny mess.

An outfit of all neutrals needs some ridiculous nails. Enter rainbow bright!

I used to think I could never wear a pleated skirt. This little number from the Gap changed my mind. The secret turned out to be picking a pleated piece that was flow-y, so that the pleats themselves wouldn't pull across my hips and make me look like a blue whale. Rocket science, right there.
