  1. Thanks Pierre, I'll give them a look
  2. Keep at it Krystof, onwards and upwards, literally
  3. So, I know I don't post here much, but I guess a few of you know that I like to wear skirts/shorts and heels a fair amount, which means I also wear hose/tights to go with them. For various reasons I can't really get away with shaving my legs very often and, much as I still love them, I also have a good amount of ink in my left leg, which doesn't work so well with sheer hose. I've found a couple of 'solutions' to this. One is to just wear opaque tights, usually black (is it just me or do brighter colours only work on a skinnier leg? I tried some yellow ones once and looked like Foghorn Leghorn!), and I find 80 denier upwards gives enough coverage to hid things from others, even though I can see the odd hair and all of the artwork myself. I do however, at least from my angle looking down, find that there's a bit of a 'shine' to them, whereas other people I see wearing similar look completely matte. The other thing that seems to work is to wear some 120 + denier nude hose, and then wear whatever colour hose over the top of those to give the shade I want. This works a treat, the thicker nude hose hiding the hairs and ink, and the top pair providing the shade. However these are even more shiny and, as you may have guessed by now, I'd rather have a matte look. So what to do? I'm thinking that option two is going to shine whatever I do, I guess that the combination of fibres just makes it like that. But why am I getting a shine with straight black opaques too? I notice a lot of pictures you see online of cross dressers (which I don't class myself as btw) seem to show a shiny rather than matte leg. Is this just down to photographic conditions, or is it how they really look? I'm happy to spend good money on good hosiery if that's what it takes, but I'm struggling to see how a £40 pair of Wolfords can be that much better than a £15 pair of Pretty Pollys? As always, any advice and comments gratefully received
  4. Pleeeeeease tell me where you got those awesome Oxfords, and I hope they're available in a 45!
  5. Unfortunately it looks like my work schedule and the weather are conspiring against me this weekend, don't fancy ruining my suede otks in the slush and muck of city streets! Hopefully get another chance soon though, she keep you all posted...
  6. So hey, I have a free weekend in London coming up. I'll be out and about around the shops, maybe stopping for a coffee, maybe taking in a museum, that kinda thing. So does anyone fancy joining me? If you're new to all this then tag along, I'll be in a dress, hose, and heels, so I guarantee I'll drag more attention than you do. It might be fun?
  7. I realise that a good portion of this forum are based in the US, but can I just say how unexcited, unimpressed, and, honestly, how farcical, those of us from more civilised nations find your obsession with guns? Wear what you like, fashion never hurt anything more than feelings
  8. I've got several pairs of shoes and boots from Yours, love shopping there. Most branches I've visited have really friendly staff who make you feel right at home, which is as it should be. I take a UK size 11 in men's shoes, but find most of their 10ee range fit me great. They have a great range of calf, knee, and otk boots too, though sadly (if obviously) they seem aimed squarely at plus-size ladies, so they fit too loosely on a more slender leg. Can't recommend them enough otherwise though. But mate, do some housekeeping and clean yours up eh?
  9. Thanks, I'll give them a look
  10. Do Dillard's do up to a size 12 in decent styles?
  11. Thanks Cat, your outings are a major inspiration to me, so your comment means a lot
  12. Had a pleasant morning out around the Westfield Mall in London the other day, just browsing the shops and stopped for a coffee. Got a couple of funny looks, but several compliments, including from a female police officer which was nice! Still trying to shed the pounds, but pretty happy with my outfit as a whole. I was wearing a black roll neck sweater, denim pinafore dress (both from Primark), 80 denier black opaque tights, and my gorgeous otk black suede boots that I found on ebay. They have about a 4" heel and they're super comfy, and a bargain at £40. I also had on a black winter coat (not pictured) which comes down to a couple of inches above the hem of the skirt. If I did it again I think I'd go for lighter coloured tights, just to give more of a contrast with the boots. But yeah, pretty happy myself, and thoroughly enjoyed my morning out. Looking forward to another day out in Amsterdam in a couple of weeks, but I have another outfit in mind for that...
  13. That's why I'm after some local knowledge, especially about Nordstrom stores, but thanks for the tips on Marmii...
  14. I've got a pair of those, very comfortable to wear. Have fun!
