Looks like normal shopping attire and makeup to me ;). Erica I hope you know how gorgeous you are. And whoever does your hair- keep them. It falls and frames your face perfectly.

Just splurged and purchased this pair of booties from Torrid.  I've been looking for a brown pair and these spoke to me - they said: "buy me."  I love booties and all of my other pairs are black or some variation of black; so, these will be a nice alternative and should go really great with blue denim.

An update:  They came in the mail on Friday.  After trying them on the fit really well, however, the ankle opening are quite wide and I'm not certain this flatters my slim ankles.  I might try pairing them with some tall slouch socks or short leg warmers to hide/fill the wide openings.  They are really cute and quite comfortable otherwise.  I hate to have to return them.  If I model them with socks or leg warmers and post pictures perhaps you'd all be kind enough to give me an opinion.

Thank you. I go in to have my hair trimmed every couple of months. I also use hot rollers to get that look. They’re kind of a pain to use but the outcome is amazing.

I ended up swapping the handle out with a chain  shoulder strap right before I walked out the door.

You have real talent!  This is beautiful, both the style and craftsmanship are on point!  People would buy the *&*! Out of those!  I'm not joking...  give yourself at the VERY least 30 bucks an hour then multiply that by the hour it takes for a project plus cost of materials then multiply that by 1.5. 

 

I hope the last part didn't come off as condescending and mansplain-y. It's just that I'm a craftsman and I know how easy it is to undervalue your work and how hard it can be for me to ask for what I'm worth.  

 

Oh, and I loved that dress your partner got for you... gorgeous!  I appreciate your style in general, kudos.

@Erica Gabriel, you look like one those real sweet old ladies you occasionally meet when shopping.  Like...you're smiling, you look relaxed, your outfit says "casual but classy," and you've been shopping at wherever you are long enough to probably know where things are better than the employees.  Totally love it!

Me and the wife had a pretty good laugh about this last night. She now calls me her “old lady”. Too most younger folks I’m ancient.

I’ll let you know when you can come out of “time out” 🤣. It was taken in good humor. No worries ❤️

I got a couple new sweaters and a friend bought me a pair of boots. I wore this to an LGBT group tonight. Just ignore the dog beds in the background.

Very nice @Elizabeth Star!  I need some boots like that.  Love the sweater to, but I think you're pulling those colors off way better than I could.  And did you do your nails yourself or go somewhere to have them done?  I could always use tips for the nails.  Mine are horrific, but no where near as clear and clean as yours look there.  Also, are the pants leggings or just a skinny fit cut sort of deal?  I really need to consider doing something with my hair...  You're like the 4th or 5th person in the past few days that was sharing pictures sporting colors.  It looks so nice!

Here's my latest efforts.  I was a little stir crazy and wanted to get out for a bit.  The only issue I have is with the hoodie.  Not for any negative reason, I love to wear it.  It's just way to warm/hot down here (I'm in Florida) like 98% of the time for wearing it to be a viable option.  Given how easily and excessively I tend to sweat, I can't get away with this as often as I would like to.

Been a little while since I posted any pics here, but this is a couple from yesterday. I love the look of jeggings/jeans but due to my "apple" shape I really struggle to keep them up even though I have a belt (I only buy jeans/jeggings that have belt loops). For this reason I tend to prefer dresses.

I usually wear a lot of black but have been trying to wear other colors. I got my nails done for the first time last weekend. I've never had them this long before. I like them but it's a real challenge to type and almost impossible to text. The bottoms are just cheap active wear leggings. I rarely wear jeans anymore.

You gals make me a bit jealous.  You look lovely!

I'm sitting here in long undies, jeans and chamois cloth shirt before bundling up and heading out to do chores and prepare for an incoming storm.  Tomorrow similar layers with insulated Cahart coveralls under coats.  I'll be sitting on an open tractor plowing snow.  I do have a lovely pink down jacket i may use as a top layer.  Oh well , the sheep don't care how i look as long as they get food and water.

 

Hugs,

I have been seriously considering getting my nails done.  The psoriasis is frustrating though.  It has stunted their growth and left them more brittle.  And I am totally  with you on darker pallets.  I usually fo with sapphire or emerald.  I make exceptions for pink though.  Gotta have my pink.   I don’t know if I could wear the active ware as well as you are.  Still going to try though. 🤗

Loving the looks you have going on!  Is that *your* or something like a wig?  Definitely a fan of it either way.  The way you have it put up.  Your look as a whole is wonderful!  That coat also looks super comfy.  I’m slightly jealous though. 😂

 

You are pulling off that shirt in the second picture with grace and that “classy but casual” look.  I seriously doubt I could get it to work for me like it is for you.

It's one of many wigs. But it wasn't until recently that a wig specialist showed me how I can style a wig in a number of ways. There are limitations, but there are quite a few different ways I can have my shoulder length wigs. In this case it was held up at the back into a short pony tail using a scrunchie.

I agree with @Charlize

Everyone looks great. I’m about to go out and clear the sidewalks and driveway of snow. It’s 20•F here so it’s about warmth not fashion this morning.

Quit the job I was hating yesterday. Still going in for a couple of weeks to take care of a client because I said I would but... behold! One of the few remaining pictures of me in my work garb!

Congrats, @Jackie C. !!!

Courage in action. Way to go!

Look for that new window to open—it'll bring you better things. Doing what you love tends to do that.

Hugs,

      I know. 9mm anemic is a poor caliber. And I carry a different handgun; not a big Walther fan. BUT, there is the "rule of cool" to consider, and Bond has that (for a mysoginist jerk)...🙃

      I've been recommended some books which I have purchased and will be going through this weekend but while I'm driving or working I would like to listen to some podcasts. I would like to get a list of podcasts specifically on the trans experience but anything trans related would be great. Asking for personal recommendations is better than a google search and going through hours of content but until then I have this list that I will be subscribing to and trying them out → https://www.gendergp.com/10-of-the-best-trans-and-non-binary-podcasts/   I've done a search but didn't really find anything useful so I'm asking in general.   Thanks for all ya'll's help

      Hi dear friends! Happy Friday to those of you who celebrate Friday, lol. Please forgive me if I already said this, but I've decided to quit my job. I believe I shared that my employer had been giving me the run around regarding disability accommodations. For me, that was the final straw - is it worth it to fight for this job which becomes exponentially more stressful (education in Florida, nuff said)? No. I'm waiting to get paid for something by them, then I'll get the ball rolling on my exit. I do plan to document all the HR shenanigans I've encountered and send an email to the VP of HR, and possibly cc the college President. I'm also considering attaching my lengthy grievance narrative from the official grievance I filed a couple years ago just to give them an idea of what the last few years have been like for me at work. No intention on burning bridges, but it occurred to me that if anything legal-wise comes up later, that it would be helpful to have such documentation.    Since I decided to quit my job, I was flying high on a pink cloud, feeling so happy and creative. Then, I got socked with major anxiety suddenly. It got so bad, I've considered pursuing psychiatric care for the first time in many many years. I think I will pursue this because I want to document the aspect of my ptsd which is related to living with chronic illness because I plan to apply for SSD (Social Security Disability), and the more thorough the documentation, the better. Speaking of which, as an educator with an educator's schedule, all my annual doctor's appointments tend to get scheduled in the summer. I've been looking at my calendar and it seems like I'll be seeing 150 (slight exaggeration) doctors this summer. Related to that, since I've been on the phone so often getting records, labs, prescriptions, appointments, etc., I feel I've been ma'am'ed about a zillion times. Whyeeeeee? (That's a rhetorical question.) it's so gross to me to be called ma'am. I am doing well last few days. Tired, but feeling much less overwhelmed by this huge change in my life. Plus, I have been making more art, and have been getting some more opportunities in that vein.    This week, I came out to my choir director. It just came up organically in conversation. It felt great to tell him. He's very open minded. Last night we had rehearsal. I noticed that he referred specifically to "SA" (sopranos and altos) when he wanted to hear us, whereas before he might have said "ladies"! That made me very happy.    I also came out to a close friend this week. Again, I had not planned on it. She was telling me about some challenges in her relationship with her bf, and I just opened up and told her about challenges I'd been going through with my spouse since realizing I'm neither cis nor het. She was great - totally loving & supportive. I feel a lot closer to her now.    @Ticket For Epic & @Heather Nicole I also suffer from major social anxiety, although amazingly I don't when I write here (although I used to). I think it's a testament to how genuinely supportive and compassionate this community endeavors to be. Ironically, when I disclose to friends irl how hideously anxious I am sometimes, they are amazed bc I "fake" being fine so well (until I have a meltdown, that is). Similarly, from my perspective, you two both seem so sweet, kind & thoughtful. Regardless of how you feel you're being perceived, for what it's worth, that's how I see you. A friend once told me that whenever I find myself fretting over how I've been perceived (did I say something terrible? have I unwittingly hurt someone? do they hate me now?), I should recall my true heart's intention the moment I said or did the thing I'm being hypervigilant about. When I realize my intention in that moment was loving, altruistic, vulnerable, whatever, it gives me a bit of relief - a small reality check - because I do trust in the power of intention.    @Ticket For Epic that meme - to anyone who thinks trans people, especially young trans people (bc that's a growing demographic), are "choosing" trans ID just to be chic or special or something...geez, right? I mean, there are people who crave drama and conflict, and I'm to the point where I am PROUD to be trans, but why would someone "choose" to be trans given all that. To be clear, I'm contesting the incorrect notion that trans is a choice. Lol, there are less expensive and life-disrupting "hobbies" one could adopt!    @Hannah Renee oh no! Is there nothing to be done? I mean seriously, they ought to consider your safety and mental health. Do you think there is someone in administration you could appeal to? I hope so.    @Mmindy all my life ppl have commented on my soft skin. Now, I understand it's due to my (previously undiagnosed) Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a genetic collagen defect). So now when someone asks me what my secret is, I tell them it's faulty genes, lol!

      Some odd facts     The human brain, which is the core of the central nervous system and a miraculous creation of nature, can process as many as 70,000 thoughts in a day! When I can't sleep it seems like that many a minute     On an average, a person accidentally eats about 430 bugs in each year of his/her life. Weird. Isn’t it?   Science has revealed that a tropical cyclone releases heat energy at the rate of 50 to 200 exajoules per day. This rate of the release of energy comes to about 200 times the world’s capacity of generating electrical energy. This rate of energy release is equivalent to that released during an explosion of a 10-megaton nuclear bomb every 20 minutes!   Polar bears can run about 25 miles an hour and jump to about 6 feet in air. Polar bear fur consists of a layer of thick under-fur covered by an outer layer of guard hair. The guard hair appear in shades of white to tan but are actually transparent. The transparent fur makes the polar bears almost invisible under infrared photography!   The blood vessels, which form a vital part of the circulatory system in human beings, are responsible for enabling the transport of blood throughout the body. If blood vessels were made to lay end to end, together they would encircle the Earth twice, by stretching up to a distance of about 100,000 kilometers.

      I have described myself as the narrator in a movie about my life (think of "stand by me"). I observe but don't live. I don't feel I exist.   Finally recognizing I am Existing but not living is what finally got me over my barrier and get help with gender therapy.
