What are you wearing today?

A bit of a black theme for me today. My work shirt is red but I don't think it's appropriate for me to wear it for a public photo, so just image a red t-shirt under the jacket. 😆

Looking good, Bri.

  This top's plunging neckline was too much for me given no cleavage without a lot of manipulation so my wife sewed a snap up higher on it to make it less plunge-y

I don't know that you should worry too much about that. Many women have very little cleavage. I don't think I could be accused of having much cleavage, but this is one of my favourite dresses now (posted a week or so back). Yes I do have some B cup silicon boobs in my bra, but there was no manipulation going on as far a cleavage was concerned.

It still looks lovely. Whatever you're doing is working for you girl!

 

Hugs!

You'd think that might bother me, but it doesn't as much as you might think. 😆

Nice dress, Niamh. You look very pretty in it. I wish I knew what I was doing picking out dresses or I'd have one by now.

You will figure it out in time don't worry.

It's very much trial and error. I know many buy from charity/thrift stores so they don't waste too much money while they find what works for them. As I belong to Amazon prime (I use most of the free services such as the free Video, Music and Kindle books), you can also buy clothes with a free no questions asked returns policy (I assume the same applies in other countries with Prime). That way, I have bought many clothes online and returned whatever didn't fit or didn't look right and not wasted any money. But I still buy at the budget end. That 50s style dress only cost me £23 (about $32). I've never spent more than £35 on a single fashion item so far in the 18 months that I've been openly buying womens clothes. 

 

Having said that - I probably have a budget of around £250 a month on clothes, shoes and makeup. My wife just assumes anything coming to the door these days is for me.

I decided to go with the official garb of the people today.

Ah yes, I wear that... a lot. Not today though. Today I'm going from shower into pajamas. Take THAT adulting!

 

Hugs!

Liz I love the look and dress that way a lot.

I have Chucks in the same color as well as blue and red ones too.

When I first started exploring my trans-ness I thought I had to wear dresses  and skirts to present as feminine so I went thru a hyper feminine stage.

I soon learned by observing cis women  that pants and or jeans were actually OK and I could present in a casual way and still be feminine.

I wear skirts and dresses almost exclusively.  But it's just what I prefer.  I know that most women I see out and about, go with pants and a top of some sort.  And I will wear jeans or similar for jobs where the skirts would be less practical, like getting firewood.  I have my hoodies for cool weather.  Since I'm retired I don't have to consider a job.

I'm not out to prove anything, I just feel freer that way.  My skirts/dresses are not anything fancy, and I don't use makeup (at least so far) and have no desire for it.  Maybe I'm a throwback to another time or something.

My female role models are all "tom boy" types. I don't think I've ever seen my mother wear a dress or a skirt outside of photographs and I think the last time my sister wore one was her wedding. (And, thanks to King Oedipus that's the kind of woman I find attractive.)

I'm not saying wearing skirts or dresses are a bad thing please don't take what I said the wrong way.

Wear whatever you prefer to wear and what makes you feel pretty there is nothing wrong with that at all.

I am all for wearing whatever you want and if you don't use make up thats OK too its your choice.

I wear skirts occasionally if I am going to a special event or something.

Jandi I am retired too and have been for 10 years so like you I have nothing to prove as well.

Working class, even a little grunge. It looks good on you. Much of my boy outfits look a lot similar, and I imagine as my girl wardrobe expands I'll be incorporating some of the same aesthetic.

Funny thing about aesthetic. When I first began exploring my gender I assumed I'd be stereotypically "girly", but clothing opportunities only permitted jeans and sleeve shirts. Several purges and retocks later, and now that I've given myself permission to withhold restraint, I thought I'd go for a more muscle girl/body builder aesthetic. Instead I find that I'm moving in an athletic business lady direction. It's a bit puzzling, but I'll just keep playing this by ear and see where it goes.

Thinking back this out seemed to work pretty well. I got called ma'am a lot when I wore it earlier on in transition. Even before my girls made themselves known. Now if my hair would just grow back a little faster.

 A girlfriend dropped this hand me down sleeveless jumper off for me.  I probably never would have bought it because jumpers just haven't been on my radar but I really like it.  Even has pockets! I'm not a sleeveless person because I'm working on removing shoulder tattoos so I'm pretty self conscious about them. But with a cardigan it works.   The only issue I have is being on spiro, I'm a regular visitor to the girls room and 4 buttons, a zipper AND a belt is a lot to undo when you really have to go.  lol

I'm so lucky to have friends that want to outfit me ;)

That looks good on you @Bri2020! The only thing I'd change is to make the belt an accent color instead of just letting it blend in.

 

Hugs!

I like that idea. It's sewn in in the back. I might look at it though and see if I can unstitch it without damaging the fabric
