So up until about a little over a year and a half ago I've paid little to no attention to fashion, especially women's fashion. I had been content with jeans and t-shirts mostly, but now it's time to step up my game. I'm looking for styles that are inbetween casual and (kinda) flashy. I'm in my mid-30's, 5'5 tall, 150 lbs-ish, on the stocky side with a ruddy complexion. In terms of what I have in my wardrobe right now, it's not much - a couple business casual button down shirts, a couple maxi dresses, a couple pairs of cute ballet flats, chuck taylors, flared slim fit jeans, and an Iron Maiden t-shirt (this was non-negotiable) is most of it at the moment. Stuff that de-emphasizes broad shoulders and um, The Area is a huge plus. Are there any good fashion blogs that cater to transwomen? Any pointers to online stores would also be greatly appreciated.
