Womyn's Wear

Soon You and Your Girlfriend Can Buy Posh, Matching Outfits

With skirts and makeup and shameless objectification cropping up on men’s runways this season, it’s no surprise that Selfridges is doing away with antiquated “men’s” and “women’s” sections. According to WWD, the U.K. department store will go “Agender” for six weeks this spring, taking “customers on a journey where they can choose to shop and dress without limitations or stereotypes.” 

Selfridges creative director Linda Hewson told WWD that she doesn’t see gender-bending as a trend that will come and go like peplums and trapeze dresses (good riddance). Rather, Selfridges is “tapping into a mind-set and acknowledging and responding to a cultural shift that is happening now...

I told you so last year, but I did not believe it would happen so soon!

Weathering the Weather

The weather people predicted 39 inches of snow to fall in my neck of the woods between Monday and Tuesday evenings. Snow is bad enough, but what concerns me more is losing power during a snow storm (happened twice before).

I always get my panties in a bunch over losing power.

Losing power means no heat and no water in addition to no lights. No heat long enough means frozen and broken water pipes. To avoid frozen pipes means me sleeping on the couch next to the wood stove feeding it firewood all night long to keep the house above freezing.

Instead of 39 inches of snow, we got 8 inches and no loss of power. Yay! I can unbunch my panties.

Speaking of weather people, one of the local television stations hired a new weather woman named Kyla Grogan. She is a local, but staffed The Weather Channel in Atlanta for awhile before returning home.

She is tall, gorgeous and dresses like me — usually wrap dresses and always short dresses that reveal a lot of leg! She has become a daily “Femulate Her” inspiration.

Carolyn's Favorite Photo (of Carolyn!)

My favourite fotie is not one of my best but it conveys my essence, I think, fully. I almost deleted it from my phone I disliked it so; the quality is awful, even after tweaking. Then I began to look at it in detail.

I started to see this Trannie as others might see her. Dressed in a style no one adopts now, full on fifties. Fur wrap; gorgeous kid gloves and matching handbag; custom made tweed suit and not in the picture, lace up high heel shoes and fully fashioned stockings (worn inside out, to emphasise the seam) not mention the silk, hand made lace trimmed lingerie and Rago foundation wear.

The whole impression projected is CONFIDENCE. I've grown over a long time, to adapt the classic fashions of the best of of the Golden Age, firstly to suit my body, but mostly to please my longing for the fine things and style denied to we males. I abhor short styles and revealing outfits which suit very few women and even fewer crossdressers. I dress to impress myself I guess, more than onlookers, but I need to make an impression on them too, to make them think "Wow!" before they think "Man!"

I applaud you Stana, about to dress to go to the office; I couldn't do that (even if I wasn't retired). I don't think I would be able to sustain the effort on a daily basis. Not just the physical, time-consuming effort, but the mental exertion, too. I attract attention!

My favourite photo is flawed. I'm not smiling; lipstick a bit squint; quality grainy and lacking contrast, but it's ME, showing the journey (as Americans say) of how I got to be me.

I put it on my flickr page and it had more views than any other I have posted, so I'm not alone then.

To sum up. It's the real me, the best me, no one like me, and 70 years old me!

In response to my open invitation to send your favorite photo along with the story behind it and the reason it is your favorite photo, I received a lot of photos and stories that I am posting in the the order I received them. My invitation still stands, so don't be shy, send me your fave foto!

When I was a youngster, I enjoyed using our vacuum cleaner and never considered that it was something a male-bodied child should not do. My mother may have had different thoughts on the matter.
