I read your “what a girl wants” article on the En Femme website and it was awesome. After reading it, I have ordered 2 matching panty/gaff and bra sets, nude patent pumps and black slingback pumps, some sexy lingerie (babydoll and cami set) per your advice. I already had some cute black ankle boots and some black knee length dress boots. I don’t have a LBD yet ( but am looking into it). What are some other essential items?
A wardrobe starts off with thinking about what we need for what we do. It sounds like you have a lot of the basics covered! At least what I think are basics. 🙂
I present as male for most parts of my life. Work, family gatherings, day to day errands… Hannah does the fun stuff. Saturdays at the mall, wandering around an art museum, relaxing at home, dinner out with the MN T-Girls…
Hannah doesn’t have to go to work, sit in on meetings or attend Zoom conference calls. Since she doesn’t have a real job (if you follow me), she doesn’t need to have professional work attire. Sure, there are things in my closet I could wear to work…
…but I don’t need a lot of clothes for “the office”.
If you are full-time and/or present at work, then some clothes will be considered essential. Depending on where you work, of course.
Since Hannah pretty much does only fun stuff, my wardrobe is built around that. There are dresses perfect for Saturday night, Sunday brunch, happy hour or meeting for a coffee.
When you build your wardrobe, think about you’ll be doing and where you’ll be going. Find an outfit that would work for that. If you are unsure about what to add to your closet, look at what other girls are wearing.
And you can choose to completely ignore what you see. When I go to the mall I see mostly girls in leggings and comfortable clothes. Not many of us are wearing heels.
Many of us dress at home, so I would recommend having cute clothes to be comfy in. If I am being lazy on a Sunday morning and want to look cute, I skip the stilettos and pencil skirt and wear a femme t-shirt and leggings. A corset and stockings is OMG one of the sexiest things to wear to bed, but most nights I slip on a nightgown.
I hope this helps but I bet a lot of girls reading this have their own suggestions and I would love to hear what everyone else thinks is a must-have for their wardrobe.
