This week we kept content pretty lighthearted–last week was full of a lot of thought-provoking posts, so we decided instead to focus on the start of spring! Monday we kicked things off with a fun day of goofy posts in light of April Fool’s Day, and the rest of the week we’ve focused on spring styling tips.
By the way–are you a fan of Mad Men? We are! The show returns Sunday night, stay tuned for an extra-special post here at The Closet Feminist on Monday….ooo suspense!
Here are a few of our picks for things to read over the weekend.

We tweeted about this yesterday, but we think it bears repeating–given that we are called The Closet Feminist, we obviously have some pretty strong opinions about the connection between fashion and feminism, and we thing Jacob’s article hits the nail on the head.
BONUS: Want to hear more from fashionable feminists? Be sure to read our “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” series, starring some of our very favourite personal style bloggers.

This one is a Vancouver-based street style blog of sorts. A little creeper-y (most of the subjects don’t appear to know they are being photographed) but sartorially inspiring to be sure, stop by this blog to see what our city’s most stylish people are wearing.
