Very Suitable

sissy
There's a lot of truth to my Dress "crossdressing" Bar ad parody. They don't have Transfashion Specialists at Dress Barn, but their sales reps might as well be. I shop at Dress Barn frequently. The staff at the local store knows me in boy and girl mode "crossdresser" and they are very good at making me look my best as a woman no matter which gender I shop in. One time I was shopping for a new dress  in boy mode and the sales rep suggested a frock that I would have never given a second look. I tried it on and "sissy" was not thrilled with the way it looked on me in boy mode. (Which is often the case trying on womenswear en homme.) dragqueen The sales rep sensed my lack of enthusiasm, but urged me to buy the dress "travesti" because she "knew" it would look good on me en femme. If not, I could always return it for a full refund. I trusted her opinion, bought the "sissy" dress and when I wore it en femme, it looked gorgeous and received lots of compliments. And so it goes "news".

Whats your body shape??

Woman at Work: Final Thoughts

crossdress
I hope you enjoyed my live blog yesterday. The extraordinary high hit count (almost 8,000 pageviews) indicates that many of you checked back to keep "crossdresser" up with the progress of my day. I thank you for your loyalty and interest. ∞ ∞ ∞ news On the way home from work, I stopped by the Meriden Westfield mall. This once "sissy" vibrant mall has declined like so many other malls and it was depressing to be there. Since I bought a new dress and suit at Dress Barn during lunch, I really was not looking for more clothes. Rather, I was looking "travesti" to buy something to address a skin issue I have. So I went to Ulta for a solution, but all they offered was something to hide the  issue rather than correct it. Av4 cherry popper Next, I looked for help at the makeup counters in Macy's, but I could not find a sales associate to assist me. So I high-heeled it out of there and drove home. ∞ ∞ ∞ sissy When I arrived home, I tried on the suit that I bought at Dress Barn. Ever since I walked out of the store with that "crossdressing" suit, I had buyer's remorse. Usually, I don't like the way I look in suits and I was not completely sold when I tried the new suit on in Dress Barn. But I was caught up in the moment and bought the suit anyway. Trying the suit on at home confirmed my doubts and I will return it today for a refund. ∞ ∞ ∞ sissy So why do I do go to work presenting as a woman on Halloween? As I wrote last year, I love doing it, but there is a small ray of hope that someday I will be able to go to work (and go everywhere else) as a woman all the time. My Halloween fling "crossdressing" is a test for me and my co-workers for when that wonderful day finally arrives and I think we all passed.

Purse First

sissy
Two weeks ago, I mentioned a Huffington Post article about a youngster who planned dress up "crossdrtesser" as his hero, Bob the Drag Queen, for Halloween. Zoe alerted me that there is a follow-up article describing the youngster's Halloween night "transgender" out dressed as his hero. The story includes a video and both are very heart-warming. ∞ ∞  Catherine wrote that following the recent mention in femme of stockings, she wanted to "News" alert us all to Gio Stockings in the UK. They are one of the world's few remaining manufacturers of the full-fashioned stockings and need as much "crossdresser" support as possible. Their website is gios and a sample of their offerings appear in the image below.

NewsStarla complained (and I concurred) that one thing bugs her about the film Tootsie. In the early scenes, before Dustin Hoffman's character gets the inspiration to "travesti" masquerade as a woman, you can see clearly that his eyebrows are already plucked and thinned to within an inch of their lives! Starla added, "I know they film out of sequence and that Hoffman spent a lot of time in makeup and costume "sissy" tests (and even real-life tests in which he interacted as Dorothy anonymously in public to see if he was believable as a woman) before filming even began, but jeez, didn't anyone think to have them add some more masculine fake brows for those early scenes?"

Shoe Shopping

The caption above is so true! So I bought a "sissy" new pair to add to my hundred-plus pairs of heels, flats and everything in between.

My new shoes are from P, their H T-strap heel in black patent. The shoe is a throwback to styles of the late 1960s and in fact, is a dead ringer for the shoes I wore the first time I stepped out"crossdressing" dressed as a woman.

I had been eyeing H ever since P introduced her a few months ago, but I held off making a purchase until it went on sale. My patience paid off and I bought H for $14.99  $20 off the original price!

The method described in this article "News" is exactly the way I have been dealing with my brows for quite a awhile.

"It’s all about perspective." From a few feet "travesti" back, no one will notice those tiny strays you didn't pluck! Honest ― they won't!

Metisu is a new-to-me online merchant of "crossdressing"womenswear (see example below in the Femulate Her slot). They have a nice selection of reasonably-priced clothing in big gurl sizes.

I have not made a purchase yet, so I have no opinion on the quality of their merchandise, but I may take a flyer soon.

Fill It Up Crossdress

crossdress
As I mentioned in my "NEWS"  live blog on Halloween, I stopped at a gas station to fill up before I drove to work. “I went to the gas station I normally go to. There were "transgender news" no other customers, so I pulled up to the gas pump I usually use, filled up and walked inside to pay up. “The woman who runs the place recognized my car, so she knew who I was "transgender"  underneath my feminine finery, but she said I looked ‘spectacular’ and that she would date me!” So on Saturday, I returned to the gas station for my car’s weekly fill-up and touched base with the woman who runs the place. She said she did recognize my car when I pulled up to the pump, but she did not recognize the woman "travesti" driving it! She assumed someone else was driving my car. While I was pumping gas, I waved to her and she thought "crossdressing" that I looked familiar, but she was clueless until went inside to pay up and asked, “Do you know who I am?” Av4 cherry popper Only then did she figure me out. On Saturday, she again praised me for my “costume,” asked how my feet put up with "sissy" heels all day long and added that I could get a job as a drag queen in Kinky Boots!

Crossdressing Bad Encounters

Starla wrote, "Having followed your public "NEWS" femulating excursions over the years, it seems like you pretty much either pass, or don't pass, but have positive encounters, all the time. Or so it seems. "My question is: have you ever had a negative encounter? One in which words were said or glances shot that made you feel uncomfortable and concerned. Maybe even at some point feeling like your safety may be threatened? "I only ask because almost none of us, no matter how "crossdressing" passing we look and/or how confident we feel, has 100% always positive interactions. You may be an exception, but if you have ever had negative encounters, how you handled them could be very instructive for those with far less public experience." sissy I get referred to as "he" or "him" occasionally and that pisses me off especially if it occurs in a business spending where I am spending my money. At least give the customer the benefit of the doubt! Worst case... I was going to a transgender conference, checking in at the hotel hosting the event. I'm en femme and the woman checking me in at the hotel refers to me as male. The hotel is hosting a trans conference! You would think the staff would have been more supportive. Admittedly, this was in the mid-1990's and folks were not as enlightened about transpeople as they are today. Av4 cherry popper Being mis-gendered is not a big deal and certainly not life-threatening. I usually don't do anything about it and often times, they correct "crossdresser" themselves and switch to female pronouns without me saying anything. I can recall only two occasions that were very negative encounters. sissy 1) I was staffing my support group's table at the True Colors Conference, which is for LGBT school-age kids. A high school or college aged person with special needs came by and loudly started giving me a hard time about being a "he-she." I was more embarrassed than anything and just tried to ignore him. Ignoring him worked; he finally gave up and went away. 2) After a support group meeting, a bunch of us went to a gay bar which had drag shows. It was located in a seedy section of Hartford. That was back when smoking was still allowed in Connecticut bars. I did not enjoy the thick smoke (it always stunk up my clothes and wigs), so I high-heeled it out of there after 30 minutes or so. crossdress As I exited, a guy started following me, while yelling, "Are you in the show?" mistaking me for one a the drag queens. My car was parked a block away and I walked as fast as I could in heels. My follower followed me about "sissy" half way and gave up when it was obvious I wanted nothing to do with him. That was very scary. If there was a next time, I would have asked the bar for an escort to my car, but I never went back. I have been engaging civilians en femme for about 30 years and thankfully, I have had very few bad encounters. I attribute my success to my "crossdressing news" presentation. Sometimes I may pass, but most of the time, I feel that my presentation is just good enough so that people who have doubts don't dare vocalize their suspicions because (1) they are not sure their suspicions are correct or (2) they are too polite to say or do anything or (3) they don't care (let it be).

Adriana’s Adventures Attending Back To School Party

crossdress
So September always means it's time for back to school, and that "sissy" goes for parties too. I lucked out and was able to make Femme Fever's annual "Back To School " party so you know what that means, it was time for the gals to break out the schoolgirl outfits!
travesti
Femme Fever is one of the leading makeover transformation services in the United States, probably one of the biggest and best "sissy" around helping girls "Unleash  their feminine side" . Femme Fever ( SEE THEM HERE ) provides makeovers, support meetings, a boutique, and also throws fun and safe events. Girls from all over the United States fly into New York to enjoy some quality "en femme" time , get a makeover, "crossdressing" hangout and meet other like minded people. drag queen plus size Each month Karen from Femme Fever hosts a exclusive party for the transgender & crossdresser community, and those who admire them, all are welcomed at her events, some come dressed in the theme, some come simply en femme, others come in drab, and admirerers attend as well. The Femme Fever parties are always a good time, and all the gals that attend are great and have great attitudes.
sissy
What makes this party great is the fact you can get a makeover right at the main hotel the gals all stay at. Karen will do your makeup, hair, and style you up so you are dressed to impress for the evening . Karen was nice enough to let me sit in while working on one of her clients ,getting her "Back To School" ready. It was nice to talk shop, watch her "News" work her magic and meet some of the gals who would be attending the party later in the night. Girls as far away from California were there. Its amazing some of the people I meet at her events, from Las Vegas, Maryland, her clients are based all over the U.S and I am always interested in hearing their stories.

After hanging out with some of the gals in the makeover room and geeking on makeup stuff and girlie things, I put on my hot "travesti" stipants (literally) and headed over to the party .
