Femme Visibility in the News!

Thanks to the beautiful Ruby Tandoh (Great British Bake Off contestant) for recently coming out, femme visibility is now in the mainstream. The talented writer Bella Qvist has brought much needed attention to femme visibility and the assumption of heterosexuality with her article for the Guardian, Comment is Free section, "So Ruby Tandoh came out? It won’t be the last time". Definitely a good and will probably raise a few eyebrows, but also hopefully open some minds.

Ruby came out via Twitter posting a link to the song "I'm coming out", and in turn she has heard from lots of people who have since come out due to her bravery. This is such a wonderful thing and it just emphasises why we need more people to come out, and more role models.

So thank you Ruby, power to the femmes! I hope more follow suit.

"There is a great lack of lesbian role models. Who do the young lesbians have to show them that they can be feminine and still be gay? Growing up is confusing for anyone, and I certainly felt that there was no one to look up to and help me see that my future could be bright, with a gorgeous wife and the house with the white, picket fence."- Megan Evans.

If this topic has intrigued you to know more, read my article about Femme Invisibility and The Assumption of Heterosexuality.

Hello to anyone new to the blog, we hope you stick around. If you're wondering who we are, we're just an ordinary feminine couple who conquered long distance between Hawaii and the UK, and we now reside in the UK as wife and wife (and with a beautiful kitten named Kisses)... We also put our face on the internet in the hopes of inspiring and helping others. Feel free to catch up on our journey by looking through blog posts, or alternatively you can even watch our journey on our Youtube channel. If you don't stick around, thanks for stopping by anyways!

What Wegan Wore: Winter 2014/15

Finally we have a new What Wegan Wore post for you! So many of you love to see what we wear, so we'll try do them more often (and try figure out how the hell you pose without looking stupid!) Let us know if you like our Winter look and what you'd like to see from us.


















Our look is a very simple, comfy, classic look with a few staple designer pieces that we love to wear. We've been lugging our Louis Vuitton bags around since we got them at the end of 2013, and I love my Links of London bracelet, that was a Christmas gift from Whitney. We adore our Louis Vuitton scarfs, they're so cosy and soft! However a little warning, they can malt a little bit and mines sadly already got a couple of pulls in it (perhaps says more about the owner, than the scarf though!) Recently we've been shopping quite a bit at River Island, we're loving Megan's top and Whitney's cardigan, prefect to layer with for the current weather. We often get comments asking where Whitney's boots are from, they are Uggs so they're uber warm inside! You can't really see mine, but they are from Dorothy Perkins which I find is a good shop for relatively cheap shoes. The coat Whitney is wearing is a camel coat from Dorothy Perkins as well (technicaly Megan's coat), & I'm wearing Whitney's coat from Mango (which I love!) Ahh, the joys of being in a femme lesbian relationship!

You can 'Shop The Look' below. For the majority I've managed to locate the items we're wearing, however they didn't have the exact same bags and scarfs.
