    Been thinking about whats going on in this picture. She’s beautiful, attractive in a very traditionally feminine way. And then she wears sort-of-masculine but not frumpy clothes. The masculine elements are jokey and playful, and only emphasise how femme she is.

    blah I don’t know what I’m on about, I’m just analysing my dysphoria here :-P

    I really like this! I can’t stop staring at it. The way it’s rough and spontaneous combined with how assertive she looks. Damn.
