Yeah @Bri2020... now I want pants like that.

 

Hugs!

I keep doing this to you Jackie! lol

I have to say, I bought these as a joke but I LOVE them.  Just feels empowering to put yourself out there.   I've gotten over the what people think and have adopted the philosophy of do things that make ME feel good.  My wife actually shed a few tears this morning when I showed her what I was wearing and why (she encouraged me to someday wear them) She said she has been so inspired by me it's helping her do more for herself.  now I'm crying lol

My legs are like my second best feature (tied with my cheekbones but behind my smile). A pair of pants like that would REALLY show them off. So... the same reason I wear skinny jeans, but more so.

That's a really sharp outfit @Bri2020...dance on!

And that is such a sweet hoodie @ElizabethStar, you wear it well.

I may have to go with the tall boots myself today after seeing you two.

This was my inspiration today, let it be yours now

Before we get TOO far away from the subject, I just wanted to share my first wig. This is absolutely not the right look for me. The bangs don't really work and the way it frames my face isn't great. The color's OK though. I had auburn hair once upon a time.

Today I'm not dressed in anything too fancy. A nice top with an artsy copper cat on it. Black. Long-sleeved. With jeans, fluffy socks and my house slippers.

 

I'm going to go change back into long hair now.

 

Hugs!

Hah! See? That's the power of my best feature. That wig is AWFUL, but my dimples keep you from noticing. I'll be fabulous tomorrow. Promise.

You all are a bad influence on me. I had a couple dollars and points in my SHEIN account from the stuff I returned. Now in a week or two I’ll have leather leggings.

My work here is done ;).  hahahahaha.  Seriously though, it's impossible to not walk tall with your head raised wearing these.

Today's outfit and a new wig. I got it because I'm an older person and I really don't want to stand out. Also I have natural grey hair that keeps on poking out when I wear red brown or blonde wigs. I don't need to hide it with this. What has surprised me is it seems to make me look younger and that doesn't seem to make sense. What do you think?

The  grey is a great color on you.

Big fan of animal prints too.

Is it the gray or the wild side top?  Either way, you look great.

SOmetimes when you see an older person who's hair color is obviously dyed it stands out more and makes you notice the difference in "hair age" vs body/face age if that makes any sense.. Personally I've always believed in embracing your gray/silver/white.  I say that now but we will see in about 5 years whether I stick to that. haha.  I've got a lot of white starting to show when you're up close.

At the dentist for a filling, wearing nail polish!

 

i will ask them for an opinion about my overbite, different shades of white and crooked teeth. I have never worried about it before.

 

wish me luck

I love that.   I want to find something like that.  My hair is grey of course, but there is very little on top.  I usually cover that with a kerchief or something.  If I had a wig that would blend in… that would be wonderful!

Lots of lovely outfits here! I always feel inspired visiting this thread. @Jackie C. I confess, even if you don't like that wig, you are wearing the shorter hair beautifully!

 

Now that I think of it, I have some store credit at Venus from the suit I returned the other day...

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I do have some grey along the temples but I do color it.

I usually wear mine in a pony tail, its roughly 21 inches now because I cut 3 inches off the length to clean up some split ends.

I started letting my hair grow in 2012 and haven't been to a salon since.

Well I left wearing a smile and an appointment with an orthodontist next month. No one said boo about my nail polish! Yea! They replaced a discolored filling that was fracturing with one that matched the rest of the tooth. 

 

I stopped by Goodwill on the way home to look at the clothes and was overwhelmed by the variety of styles and colors. I will definitely need some help figuring out what to buy.

No picture today. About to head to work. I decided I would wear that long black skirt and boots again. This time I chose a color matching hoodie and (not that anyone can see them) fur lined leggings due to the extreme cold this morning.

It's such a good feeling. isn't it? It gets a little weird when you start getting compliments.

 

The last time I went to the dentist I asked them to update my name. They did without question but resulted in everyone having to wander in to take a look at me while the hygienist was digging around in my mouth.

It was a wonderful feeling to lie there with my hands gently crossed in my lap. When the dentist came in she gave me an opportunity to ask my questions about straightening out my teeth with no hint of surprise or reproof. Exactly the opposite. There was a tinge of care and compassion which she always exhibits. She made sure to repeat the orthodontists name twice and said the  initial consult would be free.  I’ve been going there for years and she’s done a lot of work on me. It all seemed so normal. It felt good!

After a couple of weeks off, resting my aggregated patela, I got back into my exercise routine, stretched, showered, put on my eyes and got dressed for the day. Did some shopping, I won't lie 😅, got some cute tops and bottoms that I can't wait to try. The store was having a Bogo Sale (apparently any white tagged item is free if coupled with a coloured tagged item). Sadly, no nice shoes my size again. Took advantage of the full-length mirror to capture what I was wearing, but my parka was obscuring.

That, sadly, is the story of my life. On the other hand, when I DO find something in my size that's cute I do a dance. I like the cut of that shirt! I haven't been able to find any like that that I like, but hopes remain high. I am SUCH a clothes horse.

 

So my leggings came today and I make them look GOOD.

The cat's name is Bodhi. He's a rescue from a friend's cousin who couldn't keep him anymore. He's waiting for his dinner.

 

Hugs!

      Attempting play the male "pursuer" role in dating. I am sooo just not wired for that.   That, and the time a few years ago when I had to move in with my dad for awhile. Yeech!   Coming out to my mom was actually, I won't say easy, but definitely somewhat less difficult by comparison.

      If a trans athlete ever wins a big match/race/event, you'll hear never ending bitching and hysterics from the Right, but when a trans athlete doesn't win, you will always hear...crickets.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you . . . @Jandi @Shay @Astrid @Charlize hugs, Davie

      Quitting heroin and all the ensuing years of getting my ish together. Amazingly, part of my strategy was: grow your hair long, quit wearing men's clothes and shoes, act like a lady, figure out what "being yourself" means, and "fit in". As you can see, some of those goals were contradictory, but I didn't know it at the time. Heroin was my self-medication of choice. Somehow I managed to get through a graduate program in mathematics with no drugs despite dealing with ptsd and psychotic depression. I'm doing MUUUUUCH better now. What's interesting about this question is that I realize in retrospect that some of the hardest things I've forced myself to do have been along the lines of giving up self-destructive behavior. Besides dealing with drug addiction and mental illness, this also includes discovering more truth about who I am and consequently shedding habits, behaviors, and sometimes people that/who were holding me back. Thanks for this thought provoking question @Shay.

      Not to discount the existance of male privledges, of course, but personally, I always felt weighed down and held back by maleless, like it's just one giant ball of social restrictions, and also causes people to view me with suspicion by default. Always hated all of that. Envied the heck out of girls for all of that, even with the bad things they're more likely to have to deal with. It's like, "Umm, I volunteer to trade places! Any takers? No?..."   I haven't found too much physical issues with wallet in the back pocket, but that's probably because I have an excess of built-in padding back there, 😋. But lately I've taken to keeping it in front pocket anyway. I figure it's harder to get pickpocketed that way.

      Update: she replied again a few hours ago and here's what she said... I'm gonna try to do what she said and get into contact with her a little more to see if she knows anything else and can help me more...

      Me....everytime it happens lol.... Just this Saturday I broke one trying to one grip the air fryer basket thing while scrubbing it, and it slipped and the pressure went all to my nails. Luckily it didn't break all the way to the bottom so was able to file it down and still have it be almost 1/4" long, visibly shorter than the others, but at least not just a finger nub.

      That's just an hour away from me. Frederick is a cool town. They really revitalized the historic district there.

      Well stated Willow,   Coffee was early, because I’m driving from Indy to Frederick, MD to teach at the Fire Academy Tuesday through Thursday.    Best wishes, and positive energy,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      I’ve circled back to an old outfit. Just thought it would be fun to post a then and now. The first picture is the same one from page 1 of this thread, back in November of ‘20 and the second is today. Same clothes just 9 additional months of HRT.

      Nice dress.   Shoes are a problem.  It's hard to find anything bigger than 12, and even those are rare.  (and usually tight)  
    • Jandi
      Admitting to myself that I had a feminine nature - the heart of a girl.  (I was pretty transphobic)   But right up there with it was taking off my wedding ring, and accepting that it was over.  That night I was suicidal.

      #1: Admitting to myself that I was trans.  (Took 60+ years.) #2: Telling my wife that I was trans.  (Took 6 months.)
    • Jandi
      Welcome Sam. I don't know what to tell you about this.  It's not an issue for me personally. Supposedly, HRT can shrink things a bit, but it has other effects you don't want at this time. Maybe someone else here can tell you more.   Are you saying you would want to transition if not for family? There are people here who do feel that way as well.
