My Femme Isn’t Weak. Your Inability to Accept it is.

By Dannie Levine My Femme Isn’t Weak. Your Inability to Accept it is. In my teen and college years, I dated men. I know, the most vocal, confident, and proud lesbian of them all dated men.

This look is inspired by the style spotting I did while in Cali. Pair shorts from my favorite local haunt, Fabrik Wicker Park [who just keep ...

Local Fashion, Local Blogger | Fabrik Wicker Park + Chicago Reader

Last week, I was somehow gifted with possibly the greatest surprise I’ve ever received. A friend messaged my wife on facebook to show that she’d found my blog in the wild of the internet. And… uhh… you guys, it was [somehow] nominated for “Best local fashion blog or blogger” for Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago 2017. WHAT IS THIS MAGIC?! This is the exact face I made: I seriously have no idea how I ...
