Yeah it's a challenge to find the right dress, not warm enough here for it yet but happy with this one.  I am not sure how I feel about how low cut the front goes, will just have to be mindful I guess. Face tech was right, Nordstrom rack is hit and miss. Usually I don't even remember to take shots when I head out because I am still trying to  engineer my fix up time in less than an hour from start to finish.  Currently on a dress and leggings/stockings binge.

I've got a black, sleeveless blouse with a Peter Pan collar. I put it with a grey, pink, and yellow pleated tartan skirt with a pair of chunky Mary Janes. Hope you guys have a great day!

really cute, don't worry about the neckline- it looks great and appropriate for the dress style. I'd be more worried about how I get out of my car and or sitting without letting too much show down below. haha. Great summer evening dress

Classy!

IDK maybe I should consider getting my first pair of nice heels, even though I will be 9 feet tall. I was trying on sandals and decided my feet aren't so cute. Maybe some toenail polish will help.

I got a few new outfit over the weekend. Summer's coming so I thought I start on my wardrobe for hot weather.

 

I'm not overly excited about profanity on my top but it is what it is. The quality of the skirt is surprising considering it came from Hot Topic.

I really like this top. I think it would look really good with the right pair of jeans. I feel this skirt would go better with the other top.

And believe it or not I also I got a pink skirt too.

I'm really starting to these Cowcow dresses. They takes weeks to get once you order them but so worth the wait to me. Can you believe it? I'm not wearing a ton of black, not even my shoes. Maybe it's just a phase?

@Elizabeth StarIn your first post, I like the first top with the second skirt. That's so you. The skirts are all definitely cute. I'm trying to work up the courage to wear one that short. And no, I don't believe you really bought a pink skirt 😁. And I LOVE the dress!

A gorgeous pair of shoes and a pedicure will mask most foot cuteness issues. As for height, I'm 5' 10 and I don't mind wearing up to a 3" heel for most occasions. I figure I'm already taller than most women and people are going to see me no matter what so why not wear what you love.  4"-5" heels are for very special occasions when I expect to be sitting mostly. These new block heels are about 4" and I can manage them but my feet will be sore by the end of the night. 

My everyday heel height is usually less than 3" (today being an exception)

Today's outfit minus the gladiator style cork wedges. They had to come off having been on for 12 hours straight today.  I ended up going out with one of the ladies I had been occasionally seeing. (she's the last one standing of the 4). We live close together so since it was a pretty night out I invited her to a happy hour/light dinner by the lake.  Went pretty well. Basically we are both trying to figure out whether there might be more than friendship in the future I think.

Anyways, the top and pants were both from the $5 sidewalk sale last week. The top is pretty shear but I have a bralette that is almost the same shad of burnt orange so you can't even tell. The jeans have a nice flair at the ankles that doesn'tn shown upnwelln in this pic.

Tonight was the first time I went on stage with my body really showing.  I started with a turtleneck on, but it got too hot, so off it went, and I just leaned into it and gave my best girl on guitar performance.  My fear just dropped away and I had such a great time.  Nothing but good vibes!  This is going to be so much fun moving forward.  My band is doing really well, and nobody has a problem with my super power.  It feels like all my dreams are coming true.  I still breakdown and cry sometimes, but it's all worth it.

Thanks! I earned $233 for Pride last night in Ferndale. Absolutely had a good time and did not fall out of my top so much as once. Sweat right through it dancing though.

 

Hugs!

Apologies for posting lots of pics, but had a few IT problems recently. I retired from work in February, and my wife and I started a major refurbishment of our kitchen/utility rooms. Part of this involved stripping plaster from old walls, and it seems that plaster dust and IT kit are not compatible. My main PC as well as 2 other devices which rely on cooling of processor units died a death. I know I can reach this site using my phone, but I find it's not an easy site to use from such a small screen.

 

So here are some the pics I probably would have posted here. Including me on a Niamh day but in a boiler suit for stripping walls/removing rubbish as well as one of my favourite days out this year with my daughter who took me out for a meal, karaoke and clubbing in the West End of London for my birthday in April.

I've spent a while catching up on whose been wearing what and there are many fabulous photos of gorgeous people. 

 

I'm still not using a new PC - I've dug out and got one of my old ones working again, but when I've refurbished our study I'll get a new superduper PC :)

I'm heading out to look into my additional career of real estate. I'm interviewing a brokerage today. 

All the clothing pieces here were consignment finds for a total of only $25

The shoes were Poshmark find at another $25.  So for $50 I have a complete professional work outfit. I love thrifting/consignment!

That's a cute outfit. Those colors are flattering on you.

      I'm not sure for most, but in my case all my friends when out and about are cis women. I'm accepted right into the fold and we have normal 'girl talk' conversations.  We talked about everything from female issues (yeah I get some of those) to shopping and sales.  We talked about cute guys, and some of our dates as well.    I really don't have any 'guy friends', more like acquaintances.    Even when I was in boy-mode I was never accepted into the fold with the guys and always hung out with the girls. They could sense I was different. Of course the guys didn't have to deal with monthly cramps and such, but I did.

      I'm with Vidanjali (... again! 😊).  I agree more with the first half of the statement than the last half.  'Fools and Fanatics ..." hold on to their delusional ideas with a death grip, in part when they are supported by their chosen tribe of similar lost souls. The truly 'wise' understand the human condition and could even have compassion for those who have lost their way.  Ultimately though, the wise WILL often speak out against intolerance.  If not vocally, then more importantly in the example they provide in how to live a Noble Human Life.

      I can't tell if the Moms for Liberty group is focused only on school libraries or if they look at general public libraries as well.  Because the purpose of those venues is rather different.  I see school libraries as a much more focused collection, especially for the younger grades. In this topic's headline story, the South Carolina library in question is a public library   I did check out some of the "60 Minutes" interview, and I'm suspicious.  Seems it was filmed in October but heavily edited and only released recently.  Typical establishment media stuff.  I think one of the worst things you can say about MFL is that they assumed the presentation would be unbiased and consented to participate.  I would have thought they'd be smarter than that.    It seems the book banning efforts aren't particularly coordinated.  They get together in a group and rate books on a 1 to 5 scale on issues like nudity or sexual descriptions.  Local folks then see what titles are on the shelves, and decide whether they want to get rid of everything that's a 3 or greater, or just a 5....something like that.  I doubt efforts are consistent from place to place. 
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      Being stuck with unfriendly parents and not having choices can really suck.  I lived in that situation until I was 26.  I even was forced to attend a "light" version of conversion therapy to get any support from my parents to get the art training I wanted after high school.  I was fine when my sister still lived at home, but she moved in with a girlfriend and left me with my parents.  That was the most depressed I've ever been.    But situations do change - sometimes that change happens to us, and sometimes we make it for ourselves.  Rather than focusing on the dread of what you think might be happening politically, why not make a list of things you'd like to change and how you might accomplish that?  For example, if you want to move out, you'll need money.  Focus on earning money in any way possible, and saving it up while you have the advantage of a roof over your head.  Is there somewhere you would rather live?  Check out what life might be like there.  If you don't know anybody there, maybe meet a couple of people online, or see if a local friend might want to go there with you when the time comes.    Sometimes having a good future means laying groundwork for that future ahead of time.  There are things you can do, and any little way that you can start preparing will make you feel like you have some agency in your life.  It sets a goal and a timeframe, and goalposts by which you can measure your progress.  There is hope, and you can do it!
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      Pretty sure there's a wide gap between how you and I see the world...which is fine, as it makes things interesting!  To me, sending a message to cis folks that I'm not like them is absolutely the opposite of what I try to do.  I'd rather be seen for my similarities than my differences at most times.  You mention people seeking their tribe - which has certainly been a big thing in my life.  But is a trans person's tribe necessarily other trans folks?  Would we expect the same from members of other minority groups?  Are Black people supposed to seek out other Black people to spend time with?  Are Greek people (like me) supposed to seek out members of the Greek diaspora in the US?  What about people of a specific faith - are they supposed to spend time only with their faith community?  What about those of us who are LGBTQ+, an ethnic minority, and of a specific faith?  Which aspect of a person's identity takes priority?    I wonder if by focusing on finding the LGBTQ+ tribe and emphasizing how different that tribe is from others, if some people might be missing out on greater acceptance that they might find otherwise?    Isn't it also a question of degree?  For example, one of my friends works as custodian in the main building of my husband's workplace.  She's trans, very feminine, and she looks really nice in feminine clothes and feels comfortable expressing herself like that.  But isn't there a difference between an outfit of subdued colors/modest cut/small accent jewelry vs. a different outfit that is in bright colors/revealing, or even something overtly LGBTQ+ oriented?  Both hypothetical outfits could be described as feminine, but one attracts attention and the other doesn't.  Which is the better choice for her in the workplace?  In the grocery store?  Is the hypothetical subdued outfit more likely to make my friend look and feel less feminine or experience dysphoria than the one that draws more attention?  (And to avoid the "false dilemma" fallacy, these are just two examples - avoiding vs attracting attention is likely a wide spectrum of options.)    There's also an issue in that we can be misunderstood or misidentified by the clothes we wear (or don't.)  For example, you mention me being a "nudist."  Actually, that doesn't identify me correctly....there's subtle differences in purpose and beliefs.  But I couldn't blame folks for assuming that if I showed up totally without clothing.  The principle applies to how folks dress when they want to express themselves.  Even if they mean to find their tribe and identity with it, what impression is left on those around them?    I think that activism and appearance are very linked in this way - that the intended meaning may be very different than what is actually communicated to those around us.  It is perhaps a source of much of the friction we deal with.        I wonder if people are different on this as well.  If I'm not feeling safe, the last thing I want to do is be noticed.  Since getting assaulted 18 months ago, I definitely am quieter and I don't put myself out there as much.  Is it a privilege to be quiet?  I kind of disagree.  I think the real privilege might be that when you aren't quiet, when you're attracting more attention than necessary, yet not experiencing something negative from that.

      So like a mathematician to think in binary terms lol. There is illogic in my boy's statement though as he begs the question (logical fallacy when an argument's conclusion assumes the truth of its premise instead of supporting it) by assuming first that there is (1) something wrong with the world and (2) only one thing wrong with the world. Besides that, he seems to denounce the natural diversity in human intelligence & assume that the wise should ideally assume some sort of active leadership or control (not to mention his assertion is elitist). Moreover, isn't it so that those who are full of doubt truly are not so wise? As a counter example, many enlightened sages have said that self-realization is the highest attainment and that exuded genuineness is what inspires others, not activity, per se.

      The MFL group has actually been voted out of several school boards recently, which is a good start to undo their mischief.  How many of them are actually mothers of children, and which of them are under investigation by Child Protective Services agencies??
