   I guess the tendency is since we are newer to the clothing scene and have suppressed ourselves for so long we tend to go "hyperfeminine".  

 

Bri we have all done it. Im no exeption to the rule. If you want/need to pass as the phrase goes (I hate that term but it seems to be used often by others) then being 50 coming on 18 is not the way forwald. Its just a matter of not sticking out and dare i say being the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. Your wife  has been given good advise there and I would have advised the same. In an ideal world you can wear whatever you want but as we all know this is not an ideal world.

That's a very good question.

 

 

As above what i typed out to Bri. You can still wear a skirt. But be a woman and a lady about it. Look what suits you age and rock it as i know you will.

 

 

 

Im no fashion Guru just a woman that is wise to the world. I think 🙂

All the talk/choices of skirts inspired me today.

Very nice. Truly amazing how the background also matches your outfit.

Looking great ladies! @Bri2020, that skirt is out of this world.

 

Hey @ElizabethStar, I'm thinking tights are the answer.  There's a wide range of thickness and opacity.  The higher the "denier" number, the more opaque they are.  It's like wearing pantyhose, but feels like a little more armor for your legs.

Remember the saying Short enough to be a woman but long enough to be a lady does spring to mind.

I have some dresses that I wear in hot weather at home.  But I'm not sure I would wear them when out and about.  My youngest daughter tried to get me into something short awhile back.  I told her I needed to act my age.

I did that with one jean miniskirt. I put it on, said, "What are you doing?" and put it away forever.

 

Hugs!

Pantyhose don't last very long so once you find the brand you like buy a gross of them.

I generally go for the not so sheer brands they seem to last a lot longer.

Being short and fat it makes finding ones that fit  a PITA.

Larger sizes generally mean the intended wearers are taller and bigger so being 5'4" means there is very little choice for me as far as pantyhose goes.

Spanx makes some great support hose but they tend to be too thick to be called pantyhose.

It is interesting to feel like a teenager on the inside, but be in the body of a senior citizen.  It's a little insane sometimes.

That's a nice necklace, is it turquoise? I have a thing for dragonflies.

it looks like it but may be fake.  It has the "weight" though.  Got it at a thrift store (like everything else I'm wearing except the shoes. lol)

I stopped off after work and up some cheap pantyhose. We'll see how it goes.

 

I got some outfit inspirations and coaching from a co-worker today. She's the one who gave some clothes a few weeks ago and has been very helpful, supportive and understanding considering she said she doesn't understand the "whole trans thing".

Well school her on what being trans is all about.

I have several real women GFs and they didn't understand at first but I explained a lot to them and they have become great friends.

What could be improved on? She treats me like any other woman. Has defended me from the guy at work who has a problem with my clothes. Even explained me to her mother as one of her girl friends and so much more. I would also rather show someone what it really is to be trans vs. explaining. She’s quickly becoming a good friend and Ally.

I think you are right so there is no need to explain anything.

She sounds like a great friend.

I have a few female friends like that and gender really doesn't come up in conversation.

They treat me like any other girl friend.

I said that just in case she asked questions about it.

If she does ask I will answer truthfully.

I chose this outfit today because well, I just wanted to. 

I did how ever tried to put some sort of theme for today.

Tuesday is elecrolysis day and I just couldn't get motivated to doll up with all the whiskers to it's "yoga day" for work attire.  I stole back my new top from my wife and just some loose leg yoga bottoms and sneakers.  Couldn't bother with the hair so just pulled it up and clipped it. I did at least put a necklace on. lol

It seems to never end.  90 minutes a week for last 5 months.  Today I go to my dermatologist and she shoots up my lip with lidocane and then I rush over to my electro lady who spends the whole 90 minutes on the upper lip.  I can't take it any other way.  Taking forever.........My chin is pretty clear now and most of my cheaks is just the straglers, although there always seem to be straglers.  My goal is face complete before FFS in December. I will still have the whole neck to do after that though (and straglers it seems. lol). I can't do laser being redhead.

BTW, I love your outfits and coordinated shoe choices!

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      I don’t wanna go back to a mental hospital. That place still terrifies me. Even more bad memories.

      Mostly just the erotic variety that involved a boy being forcibly feminized then diapered and treated like a baby girl lmao. I'm a freak lol. =P

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.

      I loved getting my pierced. I love all the earrings I have especially the dangly ones. I feel just a little more myself.

      If I remember correctly, I was told trying to diet in a manner where you lose ten pounds then gain ten pounds then lose ten pounds again will help fat redistribution occur much more quickly; been meaning to try this out.
