Besides being an interesting person, Henny Garfunkel is what I would call a handsome woman. The reason I use the word handsome is because her clothes look masculine. But they don't look like she's denying her femininity, if you know what I mean. Men's clothes can be way cool - on women (see Patti here). And I like the way a woman looks in a necktie (see Sheila here). If you agree with me, you really should check out the blog Faintly Masculine, proving that you can be a tomboy and still be a minx.

And what's this? Buttonflowers! I finally got some, too, from the talented Megan Mae. She has wonderful grab-bags of flowers, and obi belts - something for everyone!

I also took some pictures outside with my "naugahyde" coat.

And the shoes from the side, 'cause they have a lovely shape.
When it comes to dressing, are you a total tomboy? A handsome hussy? A masculine minx?
I'll be going to Patti's for Visible Monday on Not Dead Yet Style, and The Weekly Thrift on Young Heart, and Ta Dah! Tuesday at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping!
