Guys how do I look. Am I passable? I just bought my first wig and went to the store yesterday. Would anyone know that I'm a trans woman? Yesterday was the very first time going out in public wearing makeup, I thing getting a wig has given me courage. Anyway, I need a honest opinion on how I look. I wasn't nervous being out in public at all. It was like an ordinary trip. That I am most shocked about. I thought I would have butterflies flying around in my belly making me feel just a bit sick, but nope, I felt like it was normal. Anyway, what do you guys think. Passable or not.

You are looking good! Look forward to the day when you can go round the mart without wearing a mask to hide your beauty.

@HollyNoelHaven't heard from you for a few days. I was getting worried. You look amazing. The great feeling of normalcy.

OMG, thank you all. I was worried about being "clocked", but I thought about it and I really don't care about those people that have a problem with the girl I am. I honestly think I look cute, I just wish I could do my makeup better. But that will come in time. Yesterday I decided that I was going to let my brother see me wearing makeup, but mom decided to prepair him for the shock, so she told him this was the new me. And trust me he was shocked. Now that he knows, that was my last hurdle that I needed to get over to living full time. Well I need more clothing, I only have 1 dress ordered, so for now it's part time.

 

Oh, and mom who said I would make an ugly woman saw me with the wig and makeup on and I asked her her opinion, she said she had seen worse and I asked her if I was ugly and she said no. I think she knew she was wrong and that I am very passable as a woman. I think I have her slowly coming to my side. Oh and on the 16th I get to see an endocrinologist for HRT. I'm so excited. I figure that the hormones will help make my face even prettier. OMG I can't wait, I'm finally going to start my womanhood. I am woman, hear me roar!

 

Thanks Tracy_J, Susan R, Bri2020, KayC, and ElizabethStar. You girls are the ones I get my strength from. Love you All!

I'm so excited for everything that's coming up in my life. :)

After the positive response I got here from the girls here I decided to tell a long time guy friend of mine. I was worried about what he wouldn't be as open as the girls were here. Turns out I was wrong and boy I am glad I was wrong. Even his wife was great, she even went as far as telling me I was really hot. Hearing her say I was hot made me a bit weak in the knees. I've never heard anyone say that about me before. I can't wait until I'm ready to start dating. Hello World, it's Holly and I'm finally ready to be noticed and I'm ready for my first real  relationship.

Thank you KayC. Having people that are supportive is one of the greatest things in the world when you go through what we all are or have went through. I love this site because of the people. Hugs Holly!

OMG Girls, I'm just dying right now. I was out today at the doctors office minding my own business when I happen to over hear two ladies talking and I happen to hear one of the ladies say to the other one she had to say something to the lady. That's when she came over to ME and said she liked my hair. I told her thank you. The women at my doctors office said they saw me but didn't know who I was. I can't wait to get my cloths in the mail. Going to be amazing to complete the part. lol.  I don't know whats greater about today, that I passed or that someone actually liked my hair. OMG I'm in heaven right now. I guess that answers my question as to if I'm passable or not. I'm dying right now!!!

 

Oh I one of those tela-call things with an endocrinologist on the 3rd. I'm excited to start HRT. As passable as I think I am, I think HRT will only help me look more feminine. Well I hope they will. lol

 

Thank you Lexi C, Hugs Sister. Love Holly!

This is not me asking for compliments, this is me stating facts. I look so damn cute today. I bought a new pink headband and a pair of gold hoops. And the neighbor asked my mom who the new girl is and is she single. Broke his heart to find out I wasn't interested. A girl has to be single for a bit longer until I get to be a woman playing the field.. lol

I forgot to add my photo.. I'm blond and a bit ditzy today. lol

I agree with  @ElizabethStar ...it all looks very nice on you. You look happy and confident and that’s half the battle right there.

 

Keep experimenting and trying new things and you’ll continue to find what works for you and what doesn’t. You’re doing really well.

 

My Best,

Susan R🌷

@HollyNoel, You are an inspiration, girl. Your confidence has you glowing. I liked the idea someone else shared a while back about going to goodwill and getting a bunch of stuff to test out and then taking whatever doesn't seem like your style back. Then doing it all over again. It's inexpensive compared to how I did things. I just bought everything new except for a few things. That was ok since I already had been planning my style for a really long time. My mistakes were sizing issues. I just kept everything and figured I'll gift the stuff or lose enough weight to fit them eventually. Most likely they will be gifts.:D

Thank you Abi. I want to be an inspiration so that I can help others. Everyone here is an inspiration for me, they help me when I can't see my therapist. I don't know about buying from goodwill, the goodwills here are touchy about returning things. If I were to buy from goodwill, if it didn't work then I would just resonate back the the goodwill. Might as well donate and help our community.

Yeah they don't do returns too often. I spent 20 dollars and got like five things. Four out of five worked out well enough. I can just donate the one I didn't want when I go in for more and I'm still money ahead in my book. We all have our preferences of course. I know how difficult it can be to find things I like at goodwill but when I went to my goodwill I found the most awesome comfy pajama bottoms ever. They were worth the twenty I spent alone.

Abi, I go to all the thrift stores in the area, I can't find stuff too often that fits me. Right now I'm looking for shoes that fit. At the moment they are the illusive item in my closet. I really don't want to have to buy new, not with a new pair of cute strappy sandals or heels costing upward of $50-$100. Lord let me find some good shoes in my size of a woman's 13. lol

Link to post

I feel you on the shoes Holly. I have literally no chance of finding decent looking shoes. I found some neutral high tops at journeys but nothing feminine. I have heard there are shops that make ladies shoes in my size but I have not looked at prices. I assume they are not cheap. If they look good and feel good then that makes all the difference.

Yeah Abi, I think I need a size 13, but mom thinks I can get away with a size 12. Whatever the size, I want something cute and comfortable. I know, I need a genie! I get the feeling that it's going to be one or the other. lol

 

Hugs Holly!

Clarks and Naturalizer and David Tate make larger sizes. You should be able to find wedges and block heels or flats.  Mary Janes and tall heels are bit challenging at those sizes.  https://www.dsw.com/en/us/browse/David+Tate/N-1z128t5Z1z128t1

Hit up DSW if there's one near you and go to the clearance section.  I've found lots of nice and or cute ones in size 12
