New Gown


Sally Stone

Recommended Posts

In March, I am attending the Keystone Conference in Harrisburg, PA,so I needed a new dress for the Gala.  Historically, I generally only buy from the clearance racks, but this year I just couldn't find a dress I liked.  When I stumbled across this one, I thought it suited me perfectly.  Still, ordering a $200 dollar dress is a bit scary.  I ordered it though, because I decided I wanted to make a splash at the formal this year.  Well, after it arrived and I tried it on, I couldn't be more elated.  It fit me perfectly, and is extremely flattering.  A couple of the reviews said the dress was too long, but given my tall stature, I couldn't imagine it being long on me, and actually, the length is nearly perfect.  I hope to get lots of pictures the night of the formal, and perhaps one will be good enough to post.

 

Hugs,

 

Sally

Woah. Very nice dress. If it looks good on you... it must be yours.

Thanks so much ladies.  It was definitely a splurge for me, but now that I know how it looks, I don't regret the expense a single bit.  Occasionally, you just have to indulge yourself, right?

 

Hugs,

Absolutely. Also something I didn't understand while pretending to be male. I owe a lot of women apologies for being stupid. I had no idea. ?

So right Jackie.  Guys just miss the joy of shopping.  They don't realize that shopping is therapeutic, really good medicine.

 If you have spent that much on it, and it does turn out too long and may trip you, it is worth going to a place where they can do an alteration of the length. Some of the vendors at the conference may actually be local and do it for convention price.  I think the dress and style are a knock-out.

Well rats!  The adage "All dressed up and no place to go" immediately comes to mind now that Keystone is cancelled.  I guess I'll have to find another event to attend so I can show this dress off properly.  I'm thinking a hockey game probably isn't the best choice.

 

Hugs,

      I remember tentatively stepping out, looking around and behind me as I went back in. Keep up the small steps. They'll turn into bigger and bigger ones as you gain confidence. Now I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb if I'm not dressed as me.

      You look awesome.

      Still don't drink coffee. My normal suppliers of caffeine, C-C & MD, are not presently at hand, but my vitamin water is. Had a couple of emotional pick-me-ups today (in addition to those I got here), and they were much needed on an in-person level. First, I went to return an item at Kohl's (only in person returns), which worked out nicely. The nice lady at the return counter was teaching another nice lady the ins and outs of the process. Thrice, she unhesitatingly referred to me as "she."    Secondly, as I was on my walk, I ended up passing three women, two maybe 30ish or so, the other a teen. We greeted as I passed, then one of them said something about legs. Then the other adult one said, "She's got legs." The word "legs" drawn out for emphasis. Yeah, that perked me up!

      You are beautiful and I agree men can be really insensitive pigs!

      Thanks. My hair lady, and a former boss also said the same thing about the top. As for him saying he's sorry. He's a manly man. I know im never going to get a sorry from him. Even I knew as a man. If I said some thing stupid to woman in my past life. Hey everyone dose. I would say im sorry. As for saying I'm ugly. I can take being called ugly. I'm not that sensitive, but when I'm being compared to two men doing drag. That is what pissed me off.  Yep. I worked with a lot of men in my life. There has been many times. That they have said stupid stuff, and I have said how are you married.  Can be?  He really not a bad looking man. Again not my type. He dose treat woman with respect for the most part. I'll give him that. Like you said. He just says stupid things a lot. I also know he dosn't care about gay/trans stuff. I've know him well enough to know he could care less about a person's sexual or gender choices. He hasn't even known about my transition for a year yet, and we really don't talk about. As we don't see eachother in person. Because he's a trucker. I think if he saw me in person. It might be a lot different l. I still have male friends because I need a bit of testerone in my life. As munch as my female friends have tried to be into my interests. They just aren't into cars, or other male interest. Plus if a male friend want to hang out. It means a i can wear sweats, a over sized t shirt, and no make-up. Hanging out with the girls means going out in public. A hour of prep time, etc.

      Yes, thank you. Sorry, should have said that originally.

      Check your local LGBTQ+ center. I gave mine to a friend who donated them to the community where they live. They were much too nice to throw out.   Hugs!

      I’ve been wearing a bra with false breasts for almost a year, but i too have started to feel uncomfortable due to my breast growth. Yay!   So i’ve switched to some bra pads instead. It doesn’t feel as heavy or “natural”, but the lack of pressure is a definite plus.   Now I just need to find an organization to donate my old breasts to. Anyone know one? 😀   mara

      @JaycieI was in the Boston area for about 10 years with my previous (#3) wife. My job for 37 years was overwhelmingly male dominated. During those 10 years, my best friend was a woman. She came out to Chicago a few years after I left Boston to be the "Best Man" at my (most recent) wedding. Years ago by, and we exchange Christmas cards and occasional birthday cards. Sadly, I haven't told her that I'm getting divorced and transitioning. Lack of courage. Soon. Same for the friend who cut me off 5 years ago - maybe.    Funny, it only occurred to me as I wrote about the past regarding my chosen middle name. Renee means reborn, and that was my conscious reason for adopting it. I realized that, subliminally, it was because of Renee Richards.   @MmindyAgain, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you. Hugs to all at TGP.❤️

      Hmnn, worth a shot I mean using that angle [thank you] but issue with him is its his way and his way only, there is no compromising. I will try your way next time the topic comes up and will report back.

      I hope it feels really good to know that your wife supports you as she does. That she sees you as more than a collection of body parts and as a person who desires to be more themselves.

      You look amazing 💖
