For the first time in ages, I went out in partial femme attire today.
here, I put all my male accoutrements--especially keys!--in the pockets of the coat I wore. You can't see it here, but for the first time on one of these excursions, I also wore some makeup--a light pink lipstick and mascara.
Unfortunately, the results of the adventure were not so excellent. I went to a shopping center with a Marshall's, a Wal-Mart, a Burlington Coat Factory, a DSW, and a local chain called K&G. I picked this because it's in easy driving distance, but far enough away that I was unlikely to see anyone I knew. I didn't find a thing that screamed "buy me!" The items I really liked were too expensive and the ones I could afford, while attractive, were simply not so irresistible I had to have them. In addition, I had only one brief encounter with someone else, a female clerk at Burlington who asked if I was finding everything OK. I don't think anyone noticed my makeup or attire, though there may have been one guy outside a store who glanced at my footwear.
Oh--and I'm never going to that Wal-Mart again. Its women's department is surprisingly small, much tinier than the two stores closer to home.
Oh well...I'm going to hit one of the thrift shops again this afternoon, looking for a replacement for that too-small skirt from Tuesday.
Don't forget the poll (details here!)!
