I hope your enjoyed your foray into androgyny, all!
Mica looks so lovely in her blazer and heels. It's amazing how masculine details can make ladies look even more womanly.
Anne has got some foxy curves and her vest and mens dress shirt really showed them off. Hot!
I always joke with my family that my pencil-esque figure makes me look like a dude anyway but dressing the part made me feel totally badass.
Says Frédérik: "Neither of these ensembles are office-appropriate or practical for daily wear (given LA's temperature highs), but this is the sort of ensemble I'd put together when dressing up for a night out at the Goth club. (Alas, the last club to appeal passed away several years ago, so the skirt and kilt remain in the closet.) Although I have worn both the skirt and kilt out in public before, the opportunity just wasn't there for this week's challenge. Hence, a bit of indoor modelling. The kilt is from the now-defunct Toronto Goth store Siren - a legend in its day - while the brocaded A-line skirt is from Lip Service. The vest (left image) is from local LA institution Shrine, while the shirt (right image) is also from Lip Service. I wrote about it here. And the boots? Those are my Corcoran Field Boots."

Frédérik, here, with apologies that the pictures of me above don't offer you a good look at my gorgeous legs. Disappointing, I know. But hey: Becky's ploy to get me into a skirt worked, more or less. And all the lads - that's short for ladies, right? - looked fabulous in their response to the gender-blender experiment.
This week, I offer an easy challenge:
That's right: shoes! Here's an image for inspiration:
