The “effing dyke” hoodie outfit.
So over at Effing Dykes there’s a theory that lezebelles love hoodies. Honestly I do agree with her that there are a lot of dykes that wear hoodies, I’ve just never really been one of them. Well maybe for a second in early college. But mostly I’ve been a v-neck sweater girl when it comes to warm layers, at least once I moved to Chicago. In texas, there isn’t really the weather for wearing layers, which is why I didn’t have a lot of layering style sense when I first moved to the midwest from my warm home state.
But as it gets colder, I find that my femme tendencies take a back burner for a few weeks, as I fully indulge myself in my love of tight blazers, skinny jeans and knee-high boots. I’ll get back into dresses with leggings/tights once winter hits (weird, I know).
So here I am being a bit more butch than usual. It’s a look I REALLY love on others, and can appreciate on myself as well. And while I don’t think that a hoodie is an absolute necessity for a gayelle like myself - I’m certainly rocking it while I’m in the mood.

*Lands End does not make this exact riding boot anymore, and I honestly have never before found a boot in a store that has fit my 18” calves - this was a totally amazing score. Seriously Amazing. I can highly recommend their boots and I plan on getting another pair. This pair looks promising, as does this pair. The caveat being that the shaft size does get larger with the shoe size, and note that I do wear a size 11 shoe, so your mileage may vary.
