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?

A little Googling came up with "How to Try on Cosmetic Testers in Store."

Winner of the 1972 "Miss America" pageant at Bryant (AR) High School. Starla sent me this image and remarked, "His Mom looks elegantly coiffed and attired. Like mother, like son?"


  1. I have only recently discovered Femulate. I am very glad I did. A lot of useful information; similarly, beautiful femmes. I am over 60; recently widowed and am making a concerted effort to get out of the closet. Also, recently, I have been making efforts to learn better makeup technique. This is one of the things that I find most useful here at Femulate. Along those same lines, I have been attending Mary Kay cosmetic classes. As the article, above, states, most people, especially Women, are much more accepting of crossdressers such as my self. Once I had decided to become more femme, the rest was pretty easy.

  2. Considering how much more effort Miss 1972 put into her outfit than Miss 1971, I wouldn't be surprised that Mrs. Barnes was used to having a "daughter".
