  1. Good grief! It's been so long for me I can't remember how I found this site!
  2. Because of the coronavirus outbreak, life as we know it, both in the States and around the world has basically ground to a halt. Practically every major and minor sports league has shut down, colleges told students to get out of dodge yesterday while the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recommended no public gatherings of more than 50. To that end, only essential places like supermarkets, drug stores and grocery stores are allowed to remain open, no bars, no restaurants, no multiplexes, no malls, pretty much NOTHING. To that end, it looks like I won't be going on any outings for the foreseeable future as all my regular haunts are closed. I understand the need for all the precautions, it's just not worth the trouble to go out and about right now, better to be safe than sorry. With that in mind, how will you weather this storm?
  3. WOW! I had no idea wearing knee boots would elicit such positive responses! I'll have to wear them more! Meanwhile.... Jaunt #544, 3/8/2020: My outings on Sundays were extremely sporadic at best over the last six months, what with NFL football since last September, but coming up is March Madness (a.k.a. the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament), NBA and NHL playoffs followed by the new baseball season. So, I took advantage of sunshine and mild temperatures along with a lull in the sporting schedule for a jaunt, perhaps my last on a Sunday for awhile, garbed in my wine colored faux leather moto jacket over a dark gray mockneck, a 17 inch black faux leather a-line skirt, dark gray tights, the Payless “Martinez” black ankle boots and a black handbag. The skirt which came from Primark was my first such faux leather number and it looked good on me, and it only cost twelve bucks, and I sure love a deal. My destination for the day was downtown, finding a spot a couple of blocks from my usual haunt of Rittenhouse Square Park. Even though it was early March, temps flirted with 60 and it was quite pleasant, bringing out scores of people enjoying the day, the reason I hang out in that area as much as I do is because it’s so amazingly eclectic with all sorts of people who enjoy being in the park itself which was full to the brim in this day, but I headed down the street to One Liberty Place to zip up to the observation deck to look over the city, another highly enjoyable part of being downtown as the view from the 54th floor is absolutely spectacular, though I wish it would occur to me to take pictures while there. After some forty five minutes, I went back down to the street where stopped at Saxbys for a cup of iced tea (too warm for hot chocolate), then strolled back to the park where I managed to find a bench and broke out my Amazon Kindle to get in some reading for about an hour while people came and went, ignoring me the whole time, which was fine by me as I liked being left alone when reading. My outing ended up lasting nearly three hours and I had a great time. As for the next time I’ll be out and about on a Sunday, your guess is as good as mine, but when it does happen, you’ll be the first to know. More to come....
  4. Jaunt #543, 3/7/2020: Even though winter here has underperformed in terms of snowfall with just three-tenths of inch as I write these words of wit(?), we’ve still had our share of frosty cold days, and this was one of them. Despite bright sunshine, temps were only in the mid 40’s while gusty winds made it feel a good ten degrees colder, but that didn’t stop me from going out in the new black hooded puffer jacket I wore last week over a black striped gray dress from Old Navy, 200 denier black tights, Walking Cradles “Elites” black riding boots and a black handbag. Oh, yeah, because of the chilly conditions, I added a long, thick gray scarf to the outfit and it sure came in handy. Now, I can’t tell you the last time I wore knee high boots instead of my beloved ankle highs, still, it made for a pleasant change and, paired with the striped dress, it made for a nice combination. On the topic of wearing stripes, vertical or horizontal, it’s not for everyone, but I’m happy that I can make it work as you can see below. After a quick stop at the post office to buy a money order for the annual renewal of my auto tags, I drove over into South Jersey and Moorestown Mall. Intent on catching a movie at my favorite multiplex (because of the seats which I love), I had time for a quick lunch, treating myself to a slice of pepperoni pizza before going in the theater to see Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) which was pretty decent, not great, but decent, a nice way to spend a couple of hours. After the film, I swung by Sears which was slowly emptying out as they were having their store closing sale, I won’t lie to you, I felt melancholy because I had bought lots of womenswear there, to know it’ll be shuttered in who knows how many months (or less) made me feel bad, even worse, I didn’t see much of anything that appealed to me, but I did manage to find a nice looking black denim skirt in what was left in the Juniors section, and it was on sale for just over ten bucks. From there, I went to the nearby Best Buy which I hadn’t visited in awhile, boy, I sure had missed my regular round of gadget ogling which is always great fun for me prior to going to the register with a Blu-Ray copy of Knives Out, that wickedly cool ensemble whodunit everyone talked about. On my way westward towards Philadelphia, I swung by the Cherry Hill Mall, in JCPenney, I wandered through the women’s section as more and more spring and summer stuff was on the racks, but, just like at Sears, I didn’t see anything worthy of my attention, however, I didn’t come away emptyhanded as I did see some nice pendants in the jewelry department and bought a couple. Jewelry has become an important accessory that completes my outfits for when I go out and about. Speaking of wandering, I did stroll through the mall which, at mid-afternoon, was pretty full, though nowhere near as packed as King of Prussia, there were still lots of people there who ignored me as they went about their business of shopping. All in all, a good outing, but man, it sure was a chilly one! I can't wait for the arrival of spring! More to come....
  5. To add my two cents worth (inflation factored in), I’d say that it’s understandable that you expressed confusion over how quickly you went from just a guy who wore heels to a guy in a skirt and heels. For those of us here, myself included, that evolution occurred over the course of several moths, perhaps even years, it all depends on the individual and their own mindset about how much to wear in terms of women’s clothing. I’ve been wearing skirts with heels full time on my outings since 2014 and I’ve never looked back because I love how I look in womenswear, I’ve also added dresses to the equation as I look smashing in them, and that’s the important thing, that you feel supremely confident in your appearance and that it’s no big deal for a guy to wear skirts and heels in public....because it’s not. As long as you feel confident about yourself, then the sky is the limit. Since you’re just beginning your journey as a fashion freestyler, I would suggest that you take things slow, there’s no need to rush into things when it comes to outings and such. Also, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to study up on fashion, to learn what women wear, why they wear it, how they wear it and take it from there.

    Well, I certainly hope you DID replace that knife!

    Good heavens! What happened?
  8. Nope! Not at all! Heh!
  9. Sounds like an interesting, and entertaining time. Good for you!
  10. Yeah, sizing is a crapshoot for men who want to wear women's clothing. At present, I'm a size 12, most of the dresses I own are large (12-14) while my skirts are mainly medium (10-12), style and cut when it comes to clothing can make staying within those parameters quite the challenge. I consider myself fortunate to have a good eye when it comes to determining what will fit and what won't since going into changing rooms isn't an option for me, so I've learned to study clothing and picture how an item will look on me when it comes to fit. My personal standard when it comes to wearing women's clothing is that it can't be too loose, nor can it be too tight, a good and proper fit goes a long way when it comes to presenting that public image as a fashion freestyler. As for small men such as yourself, I suppose you could check out the petite section for clothing.
  11. Hansi1973: Williams is a disgusting troll who says revolting stuff like that to get a rise out of her audience. She's not worth getting angry over. kneehighs: Well now, that sure was an interesting video from soulanarchist had done.
  12. Jaunt #542, 2/29/2020: I nearly made a dreadful mistake. I nearly went the first two months of 2020 without wearing a dress on an outing. YIKES! And if it wasn’t leap year, that mistake would’ve happened. Considering I had said several times that my future as a freestyler involved wearing dresses full time on my outings, to have committed such a blunder was reprehensible. Fortunately, I realized the error of my ways in time and headed out to King of Prussia, sporting my new Jaclyn Smith short black hooded puffer jacket from Sears over a dark gray cowl neck sweater dress from Old Navy, black tights, the Payless “Missy” black wedge heeled ankle boots and a large handbag, also from Sears. Now, if you’ll notice the picture of me in the dress below, sans jacket, would you believe that’s an extra SMALL? Yup, it is. Perhaps it’s the cut and style of the dress, but when I saw it in Old Navy, I noticed right away that the large size would be too large, borderline voluminous in fact, ditto for the medium, so it came down to the small and extra small, so I took a chance with the latter (keeping the tag on in case I had to return it), but it worked out right for me. As for the jacket, bought on sale for about thirty bucks last week while in South Jersey, it was a nice length, not too long, not too short, and, more importantly, given that it was a particularly gusty and downright cold day, it kept me nice and warm without being bulky and heavy, oh, yeah, it looked cute on me. It’s so much fun to wear women’s outerwear, something I needed to fully complete the fashion image I present to the public. As for the Missy boots, it had been quite a long time since I last wore them, and while the near three inch wedge heels were whisper quiet, they were still fun to wear, I’ll have to wear them more. I arrived at the mall shortly after eleven, and, as was usually the case, it was quiet and the crowds low, it felt good to be back in a dress, my freestyling garment of choice, but, no one paid me any attention, save of course for small kids who gave me confused stares, par for the course, and that’s good enough for me. The food court was plenty packed, I opted for a salad from Subway, when I went to the register, the employee, a twentysomething man called me “Miss”, then corrected himself and apologized, I told him not worry about it, then I joked with him, saying I get mistaken for a woman all of the time. He chuckled at that. Along the way, my leisurely wanderings through the mall took me to Old Navy to see what they had to attract my attention, I found a couple of dresses I found to have been much to my liking, one was a sweater dress for what’s left of winter (which I’ll see about wearing at my earliest opportunity), the other a sleeveless, button down number tailor made for spring and summer, you’ll have to wait a while to see me in that. On my way back, I passed through the makeup counters in Macy’s, and as I passed by the MAC counter, one of the makeup specialists, a thirtysomething black woman grinned and said I looked sharp, I grinned back and thanked her. I could see where getting compliments could become old hat, but hey, that’s still good for the confidence, it affirms that I’m doing things right when I dress up for my outings. More to come....
  13. Thanks for the compliment. Having lost 53 pounds to date, I’m quite pleased at how slimmer I look, and that shows greatly when I wear dresses. I also appreciate being tall as that adds another element to what I wear, especially short skirts, and I work hard to make sure my outfits look smart, stylish and tasteful.
