Read this: Lesbian fashion, Justin Bieber's new album, "baby killer" shouter comes forward
Good afternoon, dear readers. There's something for everyone in today's news roundup, starting with butch lesbians facing the perils of purchasing formal wear for their same-sex weddings.
As Monica Hesse reports, "a good man's suit can be hard to find if you're a woman. This is the sartorial plight of . . . the women who love women but don't love wearing skirts and really don't love those girly pleated pantsuits with princess seams and scalloped collars." Take the case of Susan Herr, who just launched a Web site to help women who prefer to dress like men, inspired by her own commitment-ceremony shopping experience:
A friend dragged her to a department store and helped her piece together a mishmashed ensemble: men's white loafers, a gender-neutral Calvin Klein suit, a ruffled shirt from the women's department. "If you're a bride wearing a dress, then you have 400 magazines to work from for advice." But if you're a bride wearing a suit, Herr says dryly, "we've got what Ellen DeGeneres wore. And that's about it."
