[4-18] I just realized that my entire outfit is menswear (well, except for my underwear - haha)

I'm wearing:
Thrifted men's blazer circa 1980s
Beat up Brooks Bros men's classic button-down shirt
Skinny Jeans from Trash + Vaudeville (NYC)
Beat up work boots

Patti Smith is one of my idols and this iconic photo of her by Mapplethorpe is used on the cover of Horses. She writes about the photo shoot in her memoir Just Kids. Powerful stuff.
