  1. I may be interested in some of the US 10, can you provide which ones in the pictures are?
  2. That's roughly 30 minutes south of me...
  3. What site?
  4. So as things continue to progress, I started thinking about getting some gloves. Now I've always wanted a pair, shoulder length leather, but seeing as how those aren't the easiest to get on and off in winter time when wearing sweaters, I decided I should look at more practical options. The problem I have is that I'm not familiar with any decent leather glove manufacturers. So does anyone have any recommendations? I definitely want leather, and as for lining, I don't necessarily have a preference. I'm looking for some that are no more than elbow length, if that. Thanks in advance for the help!
  5. I'd pick the Kiss style...
  6. As I continue on my journey into heeling, and "crossdressing", I find that more and more, I wish the fashion industry, mainly the big companies that put on these lavish shows, would make more of an effort to show traditional women's clothing on men. Some of the clips I watch, both linked on here and in general on the web, have a tendency to take this extreme approach to having men in 'female' attire. What I would personally love to see is a fashion show/blog/media gallery that showcases those of us who manage to take clothing, shoes, and accessories that are deemed for the opposite gender and blend it into our everyday lives. If it already exists, I may try to contribute to it.
  7. .

    @Mandy I like the video, and subscribed to your channel.
  8. Well my newest pair of boots came in the post today. I had found another pair of thicker, block heel boots that my wife really liked for me. They are Crown Vintage brand, style is called Pilot. I managed to snag them off of DSW website. They were on sale for $49.94, then DSW had an additional 25% off that. In conjunction with a code I had, it made my total just over $30. I'd say not too bad of a deal! Trying them on, I must say I like the fact they are a snug fit on my calf.
  9. It sounds like she already may have a thing for heels, so I suspect it may go better than you think. I just told my then g/f, now wife, that it was something I enjoyed and that I didn't think it was a phase. She was very understanding, and has even gotten into wearing more heels and boots herself. She even helps me pick out pairs for me to buy. I would tell her first, and then she will either ask to see, or you can ask to show her.
  10. I will need to acquire some sweaters or tops that better accent that. Truth be told though, I need to drop a few pounds, otherwise a shorter top would not only accent the top line of the skirt, it would accent my gut...
  11. Here are some pictures...
  12. Well the skirt came in while my wife and I were on vacation. I briefly tried it on this morning, and I have determined that even though the size chart on the website says large covers sizes 10 & 12, it definitely is closer to a 10. While I fit in it and got it zipped up, I could definitely stand to lose a couple more pounds, which is my plan anyway. I will make sure and take pictures tonight because I think it does look good, but I need some different tops to really pull it off.
  13. So for those of you who watch the Amazon reboot of Top Gear, there is a bit on the new show called 'Conversation Corner.' The intro is a silhouette of the three of them(Hammond, Clarkson, May) sitting on stools. This week's episode caught me off guard because in the silhouette this time, Jeremy Clarkson was wearing some noticeable heels! I just got a kick out of it seeing that.
  14. @mlroseplant and @Thighbootguy I don't know if I can show it very well in a picture, but growing up, my mom always joked that I had her hips, because my legs didn't go straight down from my waist. I believe my body may have been built for a skirt, which is why I wore them so much when I was younger. This will be the first one in probably 5 years, and definitely the first one my wife will see me in. I was a little disappointed how they did the sizes. I usually wear a 12, so right on the cusp between L and XL, but I ordered a L
  15. @Thighbootguy I hadn't thought of the taper, but I have chicken legs so hopefully it fits ok! I am on vacation so it will hopefully be waiting for me when I get back.
  16. Ordered my first skirt today! I saw a friend wearing it and she pulled it off so well that I had to ask her where she had gotten it from! I ordered a Bar III faux leather pencil skirt in black from Macy's. Will definitely post pictures when it arrives!
  17. When I was younger, I considered myself a closet cross dresser because I chose to wear and look extremely feminine in the privacy of my own home. As I got older, I transitioned from the extremely femme look, and started trying to find clothes and shoes that, while they might be women's clothes, they don't stand out and scream it. This leads to where I am today. Pretty much every pair of pants I own now is women's, including new work pants I just got yesterday. In the winter, I only wear boots, heeled and not heeled, outside of work UNLESS I'm doing work around home, which are hiking/work shoes. I have a decent number of pair of women's underwear because boxers don't work with tighter fitting pants. BUT here is where I draw definitions and lines. Yes, I cross dress because society has labeled the clothing I wear on the lower half of my body to be meant for a woman, not a man. But I don't care because my wife actually prefers it, saying I look better in them. Some close friends know this and don't care. If anything, some of the girls have taken to finding similar stuff for their guys to wear now. But I cross dress, and don't look feminine. When I was younger, I hated the term cross dressing, because I grew up with the though that if I dress in women's clothes, and look like a woman, I must be gay. I feel society as a vast majority is responsible for this. I can't find a specific person to fault, but over time, it seems people just default to seeing you in women's clothes and think, oh you must be gay. I think that may be a partial reason I steered away from that, because I knew I was into women. But shame on me, even though I was young and ignorant then, because now my thought is, who cares? At the end of the day, I remember that life is sooo incredibly short, I don't have time to stop and worry what other people think. Why waste my time worrying and control what people think about me? So remember that no matter what you do, people are going to define it their own way, those who do it, and those who see it. What matters is your take on it and your comfort level. People will always judge. The thing I tell myself is that they are just jealous because they realize how good I look and can pull it off.
  18. What's the brand, etc?
  19. So I think it goes without saying both pairs are hot, and I would love to have either! Thanks for the compliment too! As for the bulge when I wear the boots under jeans, I found that if I wrap my knee high socks over the tops, it pulls them in and hides the bulge. In the above pictures, I was just wearing some regular socks, but I totally agree with you.
  20. Where did you get those from? They look awesome.
  21. I am super jealous of the boots and the fact your wife had you wear them to a party! Keep it going!
  22. So as my wife continues to level up her comfort of my heeling(yes, pun intended), I have been on the search for some boots that could be looked at as either masculine or feminine to keep her comfortable. I primarily searched DSW.com because I had two certificates totaling $25 off, and who doesn't love discounted things?! Now just as a precursor for those of you who don't know, I have two pairs of riding boots I try to wear almost every day, regardless of the company I am around. The one pair of heeled boots I absolutely love to wear, my wife is still warming up to me wearing them around town, but when I am out of town for work, she doesn't care. So this trek was to find some boots that could pass either way, and at least be within her comfort level. Oirignally she was comfortable with boots she saw that were 2" or less in heel, but these are between 2.25 and 2.5", so not much taller, but she did like them a lot. I've already worn them out twice within the first week of getting them, and I must say, they are extremely comfortable! My only wish is that the calf was a bit smaller, as I have 'chicken legs' per my wife's description. I took photos with 3 different pairs of jeans, and am curious as to what you all think! The boots are Sable, made by Indigo Rd., size 10m
  23. @cgllc1860 just out of curiosity, which city do you live in?
  24. I now am leaving on the 18th of December from the Fremont area. If nothing else, I would love the opportunity to meet up with some other fellow shoe lovers in the area. Anyone?
