You Make Me Feel Like a Woman[1] is an unmarked quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Quick walkthrough

Unmarked Quest: You Make Me Feel Like a Woman
Acquire a dress, either formal wear, Vera's outfit, or White Glove Society attire.
Place the dress in Veronica's inventory.
Reward: Scribe Counter

Detailed Walkthrough

Veronica has a long-held dream of wearing a dress. She won't actually wear one (she always wears the apparel with the highest DT, and dresses generally have zero), but she will still thank the Courier if one is in put in her inventory, and says she will try it on later. Although officially the White Glove Society attire seems to be the "correct" dress to use, most pre-War outfits count as dresses.

It is not necessary to get the clothes from a female; apparel in Fallout: New Vegas is unisex and what looks like a tuxedo on a man will be a dress on a woman. Giving her Formal Wear will make her very happy, and in return she will teach the player the special Scribe Counter unarmed move.

Acquiring the goods

White Glove Society attire is worn by most White Glove Society members, and formal wear is worn by some of the higher-level members, including Mortimer, Marjorie, Philippe, and Chauncey. Since it's what they're wearing, it can't be pickpocketed, though it can be taken after they are dead. Should the player not want to kill someone wearing one of these outfits, it is possible to reverse-pickpocket better armor on one of the members, then pickpocket their clothes when they put on the armor (this might require leaving and returning to trigger).

If the Courier is sponsored by Marjorie to become an honorary White Glove Society member during the quest Beyond the Beef, she will give the player a set of formal wear. Additionally, during Beyond the Beef, when entering Jay Barnes' room the player is attacked by members of the Society both of which wear White Glove Society attire, further in the quest line Chauncey is assassinated if the player meets him in the steam room during the quest, afterwards they may loot his Formal Wear without losing karma or reputation.

Bugs

  • In a rare occurence, the formal wear was given to Veronica, however she didn't acknowledge until several game days after, when the player attempted to Sandman Kill a character, and instead of killing the character, the player laid down on the bedding, then stood and immediately Veronica initiated conversation, thanking the player for the dress (and other dresses given previous). She said that she would teach the player the Scribe Counter, however the perk was never given. [platforms tag needed]
  • Sometimes, especially during the quest Beyond the Beef, putting a dress in Veronica's inventory will not cause her to acknowledge it and teach the Scribe Counter. Simply send her back to the 188 Trading Post and go to her, where she'll immediately show recognition of the dress being in her inventory. [platforms tag needed]
    • In some rare cases this does not work, but entering Vault 11's sacrificial chamber has caused it to trigger on a number of occasions.

Notes

  • On consoles, she won't wear dresses if you give her one, because she wears the item with the most DT, her clothes being the highest against a dress.
