Crossdressing Service Stores

8 posts in this topic

Hello all:

Have not posted in a long time. Been busy with work alot. But one thing has been on my mind and was wondering if anyone can help me out. I was wondering if anyone knows of any type of crossdressing stores in Southern California where you can go and get help out with dressing up or anything like that. I have been trying to to look on the internet for a place and all I can find is places back east and 1 place up in San Francisco.

Hope to hear from you all later

Hi, Amy. Nice to see you back here.

I haven't found a store per se, but I have had this link for a while for a glamour photographer in Studio

City, who will do a photo shoot, and the makeup and the whole deal.

I don't have time right now to search for more, but I'm sure there are stores in Hollywood or West Hollywood.

I'll see what I can find when I get home and have more time to search.

I don't live in your area, dear, so I can't help much. Generally, your support groups in the area will know. You may want to email them. Also - most big department stores will help you if you go when they are not busy. I prefer to pay a realistic price - and not one that might be charged by a CD or TS specialty shop - but then its probably more fun to have someone who knows how and what, to help you out.

Hope this helps

OH - shoes hiint - google 'woman's shoes 12' or similar, if you want some on line services.

This was a question I asked of the ladies at the Crossdressers meeting Last night (about Seattle, not So Cal tho). I was disappointed not to find out anything. There are some things I really want to see before buying - would prefer to have a store available vs online shopping.

Do we need to start a chain ourselves?

Amy, here is the only link that seems to fit what you are looking for. I suggest you try to call them before heading over that way, because they may not

even be in business any longer. Sounds like a nice place, though.

My only other suggestion is to stroll around Hollywood Blvd. and Melrose Avenue and browse the stores. There are many, many boutiques and specialty

stores on both streets. You're sure to find some nice places with trans-friendly staff. The store where I got my wig is on Hollywood Blvd. and they were

just lovely folks to deal with.

Good luck, honey.

Thank you all for all your advice and sudjestions. For my normal job, I am a computer tech for a company that deals with point of sale systems and I know we have a few stores in Hollywood. So next time I have to go out to Hollywood for work, I will just walk down the Blvd. and see what stores I find.

Thank you all alot

Hi, Amy,

I have read about Lydia's TV Fashions in the LA area, but have never been there or talked to anyone who has. I think I saw it in Miss Vera's Cross-Dress for Success book. I've been on their website, and it sounds wonderful! Here's the link: http://lydiastv.tvheaven.com

I haven't been there myself, but I going to be in LA in May, and I plan on a makeover and a girls' night out. I can hardly wait!

Any of you girls been to Lydia's? I'd like to get some feedback on them before I go there. Particularly before I go out with their group. Actuallyl, I've never been to any kind of TG establishment before, never even gone out of the house dressed . . . you know, this is starting to sound a little scary!
