Totally agree, Stacie.  Before transition, if I needed something, I would usually be in and out of the store in 15 minutes or less.  But when shopping for women's clothes, I could spend hours (not to mention spending half my salary.  :P).

 

When just starting out, you will spend more because you're building a wardrobe from scratch.  Use discount stores and even places like Goodwill if you want to save money.  Clothes, as I'm sure you know by now, don't come cheap.  That goes double for shoes.

I have to agree! There is lots of interesting variation in female clothes, whereas men's were so boring most of the time. It was a lot easier to decide what was right though. A quick scan and either buy or leave.

 

Interestingly, and I am not sure whether it was male or female or neither as they are somewhat feminine, but the longest time I spent on buying any single item was over an hour on a pair of hiking boots. I went through two shop assistants in that time! This was immediatly before I started openly wearing feminine and female clothing so I am not sure, but maybe just me. I needed to get the perfect size and look. The ones I bought were lighter than many pairs of shoes and no more obvious than many types of trainers but they had to be right!

 

I find that glasses take a while as well.

Oddly i have found even shopping for groceries more fun and that is after being full time for years.  The excitement of simply being me has perhaps worn off but the joy in being able to relate to the other women in the store is so much greater in an amazing way.  When i used to shop i felt alone where as now i am part of a community that seems more willing to support and help each member.  I can now smile at children and not be perceived as some kind of threat.  I find myself dancing down the isles of the grocery store with a smile on my face.  Now that's a real transition!

 

Hugs,

YES!  This is so true.  I am not afraid to speak to anyone in the store and I'm always met with a smile.

Like Carolyn I used to go in, get what I need and get out.  Now it's an outing and I try to enjoy each trip.

I am right there with you. I can easily spend the entire day at the mall and both mine and my girlfriend's salary. I was looking at my closet and it is quite full after starting from almost nothing in December 2015 when I was almost full time except work.  But, I had a decent job and some cash reserves to pay for it.

 

When I go shopping now, I now take into account if I already have something like it. If I do, I put it back. My ex said that about shoes, I applied it to clothes too.

      An interesting read!   One of the sayings I often use, Jani, is that the difference between a man and a women is that they each inherit a different set of problems.   Tracy

      I personally started by being very vocal about my support of LGBT issues. This was during the presidential election and I've been Dem my whole adult life so it wasn't very surprising. I also worked my butt off (literally) losing weight. I prepped my friends by showing them my favorite band, Steam Powered Giraffe, who has a trans female singer. They all reacted with a kind of "that's nice, good for her" attitude so I felt safe telling them. By putting subtle hints into every day life it lets you know how people feel about the topic before you out yourself.

      Hi Arianna!!! I'm glad you introduced yourself! I know what you are going through.....I was such a sullen and broody individual before I finally THREW the curtains OPEN and faced my issues directly. I was a very moody person, and suffered some depression here and there but it turns out it was because I was not living for myself, and I was repressing who I really was. Anyway, fast forward to 38, and this year when I finally looked at myself in the mirror and started making changes. It can be a hard and scary journey though. I have never felt better, happier or more at ease with life than I do now....but the first steps were really scary. I hope only the best for you, Arianna......your doing the right thing! Go GIRL!  Kisses and Hugs,   Sunny Kay

      Hello Amy.  Things certainly sound like they are heading in the right direction for you.  Your GP sounds great too.   Jani

      A very good essay.   Interestingly the comments were not incendiary.  I liked this (partial) reply to one, though it didn't speak to the scouting aspect of the essay.  "While the specifics of moving from male to female and female to male differ, the motivations are essentially the same: they are all about identity, and really have nothing to do with "the grass is greener on the other side." We transsexuals think about this long and hard (because all we hold dear is at-risk), and we realize that when we change, we are gaining the problems of one side whilst losing the problems of the other (and having transgender problems besides!), BUT most of find the new problems worth the joy of being true to ourselves - very very few of us go back."  Hopefully the prior commenter who seemed supporting learned something.     Changing my problems for new ones; thats an action I can understand!   Jani

      Line up someone to assist you with daily activities like shopping, cleaning and the such for the first week or so afterwards.  You'll be tired and busy with "homework".   Jani
