morganasticramblings said: I have a question as regards clothes. I like female clothes to dress up in when I want to feel pretty and feminine, but like guy's clothes just as much for day to day stuff and in fact wearing guy's clothes a lot of the time doesn't affect my gender (despite being a little gender fluid). My question is, how do other butch ladies manage in day to day (particularly work) settings? Are you able to present butch for the most part without redesigning your wardrobe? Thanks. :)
I can answer that on a personal level: For a while early on in my transition I attempted to dress more femme, but it never felt quite right. I wore one of my only dresses to a friends wedding and it was okay, but after I realized I would have felt more comfortable in a fitted button up and vest. For day to day my clothes are pretty androgynous but I usually go for “ladies” cut clothes that are more fitted because I’m more comfortable with my body in general.
That said my day to day clothes per-transition were way too baggy to be of any use now for an androgynous presentation, so I’ve had to really redesign my wardrobe (thankfully I know a lot of trans guys and clothing swaps are a wonderful thing). Though There are a few things that have made the shift. I mean do combat boots have a gender?
I’m a grad student and TA so I really don’t have “work clothes” and anyways I like to wear a lot of button ups as it is. I’m just queer no matter what I’m wearing.
What about others? Day-to-day clothing woes and successes?

Hell yeah! It’s all nice, butch, femme, hairy, shaved, whatever!
