Milady’s Merchandise


Jaye Anne wrote, “Maybe this will be of modest interest to our more self-conscious  sisters”

“Yesterday I went shopping at about 9:30 AM (at Walmart) and in drab, purchased three panties and a new shade of lipstick (I am partial to L'Oreal lipsticks). I checked out and paid the checkout lady, a woman of about 60. She didn't blink an eye, was friendly and wished me well. 

“My point for telling this story is that people in general and women in particular don't care. They do their job and are happy for the sale.  I have, in the past, had the same experience with a skirt and blouse at Lane Bryant.”

I added my two-cents’ worth.

And if they do care, they usually keep mum because it is none of their business.

On occasion, I have had cashiers comment (always humorously) about buying stuff for milady. When they do, I tell them the purchase is for me and show them my photo en femme on my iPhone. That usually blows them away!

By the way, regarding the image above:

1) I’d like to try that while shopping in girl or boy mode, but

2) What are the health issues?

  1. I would like to try on lipstick while shopping in boy or girl mode but you raise a good point about the spread of germs.
    About shopping in stores for woman's stuff whether in male of female mode I think that FDR said it best..."There is nothing to fear except fear itself".

  2. Is the guest on the left en femme for the event?

    1. Yes, Alice, the woman on the left is a femulator.

  3. yes, do not try lipstick testers on your lip but on the back of the hand.
    I have had occasional comments when buying cosmetics in drab,e.g.nail polish, about the colour suiting me. oddly enough when recently watching my wife pick out some marked down eyeshadow another customer (with a middle European accent) said humourously 'I hope that is not for him'. Actually it was not but little did she know.

  4. My colors have been well established long ago but in order to halt the spread of germs I always put any new (replacement) make-up on my wrist or use the "back of the hand" method to gain the proper and right shades of colors. The makeup test marks usually wash right off. Works for me!

    Good points made by all.
