Reader Request: Androgynous Style Inspiration

Great blogs to read for androgynous style inspiration!

Reader Tracy emailed me with this request:

I’m going through a style change and need some guidance. I used to wear a lot of dresses but not so much anymore. I am leaning towards changing my personal style similar to Ellen DeGeneres’ look.
