What I should've done...

Almost out en femme
After grocery shopping Thursday morning, I continued my quest to pare down the size of my wardrobe. Makeup, wig, bra, girdle and thigh-highs on, I tried on dresses from the deep, dark reaches of my closet. 

Good news: Everything I tried on fit. Lots of it I had only worn once and were like new. 

Bad news: I found nothing to add to the discard pile.

I quit around 4 PM, de-feminized and prepared dinner. 

After trying on the first dress (which I thought looked fab on me), instead of trying on more dresses, I should have gone out en femme to the mall to shop and to a restaurant to dine.

  1. Yep, I'd agree with that. No point getting all dressed up and not going out.
    If I had wonderful legs like yours I'd show them off too..

  2. My discard pile continues to end up empty. If I don't pare my mountain of Mikki's clothes soon I won't be able to get into my bedroom! I used to have three outlets, one of them a consignment shop, where I comfortably donated my plus size clothing. Sadly, Covid blew all three out of the water! I'm just not into the Goodwill folks, who tend not to keep donations in the area. And I'm far too disorganized to become an EBay store. I'm hopeful that at least one of these stores will regenerate itself because I have lots of plus garments, 16W, 18W and 20W, for "someone".

  3. Stana, I'm knocked out by today's color block dress! I'm so old that I sadly remember when tall girls worked hard to disguise their height. But in the wake of Title IX (50 years old this month) these tall girls have come out from hiding and are on the Basketball and Volleyball courts! And the non-athletic girls, having gotten "coverage" by the "jocks" are standing tall, too. I support my University of Maryland women's sports and I love walking around so many young women who are taller than my 6 feet.

    And here's our girl Stana in a color block dress that goes out of it's way to emphasize her height! I love the way your long, lovely legs link up with the two vertical lines up to your shoulders, Hon'. Tall is good. Tall is beautiful.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Mikki

  4. Speaking of more clothes...............
    I buy lots of clothing online from Macy's. Today, as I'm looking at tops, I've run across garments from Avenue. No mistake, the same Avenue that sells exclusively plus-size clothing. I went to the Avenue site and found all the items I flagged with interest on the Macy's site. ALL were lots less expensive from Avenue, some close to half the "on-sale" Macy's price.
