Hello! I'm Sasha, cis female, I work in an office in an academic/health-care research area. To my own great surprise, I've lately gotten quite interested in fashion and style. This is because I got a whole lot more comfortable with myself when I came out as queer last year. I've played with dressing more traditionally-feminine and more traditionally-masculine or neutral; the latter seems much more visibly queer, but I like wearing both kinds of clothes, sometimes at the same time, and experimenting with my presentation. I've never worn makeup but that is not unusual for women in my region/culture. I have lately added several dresses to my wardrobe, and a tie. To work, I usually wear trousers, a dress shirt, a jacket/blazer, my Danskos, and my cap (which I wear everywhere due to light sensitivity). Sometimes I wear skirts to work with knee socks or tights. I've become extremely fond of pinstripes, tweed, and things that are red leather. One thing that was a revelation for me was that if I admire a look on men, I can wear it too! (This seems obvious now but it never consciously occurred to me before I came out.)

For three things that are very "me", I tried to think of things that I wear a lot, since my style is very much in flux these days.

*My cap. I think it's called a driver cap? It's charcoal colored. I've been told it looks very queer, and that pleases me. photo of me wearing my cap.

*My pendants. I wear a necklace nearly every day, and it's usually the only jewelry I wear, although lately I've been wearing some rings and a bead bracelet too. I like "semi-precious" stones the best, fairly large ones that I can fiddle with. In fact, the fiddling-with feature is the best aspect of jewelry for me, and it helps me with anxiety.

Wow. I had never consciously thought of that before you said it!

Also I adore your cap and red shoes, I have no idea of the proper name for the cap but my grandfather used to wear one like it. I may have to go cap-shopping now! And you take wonderful photos BTW, I looked at some of the rest of your photostream while I was at it :)

Cheers,
