Men We'd Love to See Feminized, Week 12

Ashton Kutcher

Oddly enough, I think he looks a lot better as a girl!

More Shopping

Went to Target this morning, looking for the dresses I saw on-line last week. Again, none of them were there. Now, my local Target is in the midst of a major re-organization/remodeling, so it may be they are holding off on getting in a lot of new merchandise until they're done, in early October. (At that time, a second Target is opening nearby as well; word from the staff is that that one--acting as the anchor for a mall--may concentrate on clothes more than this one will.)

Also went to a different Payless, still looking for the shoes I saw on-line. Again, nothing. In this case, I suspect one of two things--either the brick-and-mortar stores will not be carrying these items, or they haven't gotten in a lot of their fall lines yet. I'll keep searching: There's a third Payless a little further away I may check out next week...while there, I may actually ask about some of the styles I'm in search of.

BUT--I also hit the Burlington Coat Factory across the street from the Payless and bought a terrific dress for just $15! They also had a lovely suit there for $20; I may get that next week as well!

You'll see all my new purchases later this week.

Everybody Ought to Have a Maid

Here's a delightful little clip from Julie Andrews' 1992 TV series; she doesn't sing a note, but she doesn't have to, as she performs the title role in the number from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum:

Shopping Trip

The wife went into town for a meeting this afternoon, so I had the opportunity for some shopping, in preparation for September's dressing sessions.

I started by doing some on-line searching at my fave places last night. I found a bunch of attractive things at Kmart, Target and Payless. But this afternoon, I was disappointed when only a few of the items I found on-line were available at the local Kmart (none of the new Jaclyn Smith line dresses were there!), and none of the ones I wanted from Payless were in the store I went to. (It may be that the on-line store is ahead of the brick-and-mortars in getting in the fall lines. I will check out other locations over the next few weeks.)

However, I did pick up two cute dresses at Kmart:

Both are part of the Route 66 line.

And, at Payless, I found a lovely pair of pumps in a charcoal gray fabric. They're not anywhere on-line, so either they aren't available in the on-line store, or they are last season's (though I don't recall seeing them before and they are definitely a fall/winter shoe).

Anyway--you'll probably see all of these on me in the next week or two.

Hypnotic Headmistress

A new idea for these...emulating a classic '50s-'60s paperback cover.

Who's the Boss?

I don't often do "imperious domme" in my poses, being naturally submissive and sissy-ish, but this outfit seems to demand it.

I love the skirt of this suit--it's short and tight enough to be sexy, yet it's still modest enough to be business-like. Combine it with fishnets and those incredible pink spike heels and it screams domination, doesn't it?

This is my last dressing and photography session for a couple of weeks...probably until after Labor Day (that's Sept. 7 for you non-Americans). Got a bunch of errands, appointments, etc. over the next several weeks, so time for this will be non-existent. I'm sure by the end of the month I'll be itching to get in something femme, at least for a little while.

That also means posting here may be a little sparse. I'll definitely get the regular polls done and probably a couple of cartoons, but anything else may be catch as catch can. OTOH, after Labor Day, I'll have a lot more time, since son will be back in school.

I'm going to keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks for new outfits, as the stores bring in their fall lines (and put the summer stuff on clearance). I haven't been to Burlington Coat Factory in months, so I may need to check them out.

Is there any kind of outfit you think I'm missing or that I need more of?

Men We'd Love to See Feminized, Week 10

Neil Patrick Harris

All Dressed Up....

...and nowhere to go!

Here's my semi-formal outfit, worn this time with the shorter black skirt for a little more leg show. Nothing special here, just an attempt to seem ladylike and elegant.

More pics, as always, on Flickr. Tomorrow's plan is for a business-like look, in the blue pinstripe suit with the killer skirt.

Portraits in Blonde

These are both close-up crops of the original images for two of today's photos, significantly edited for a glamour photography effect. Most notably, I've applied a good deal of "digital cosmetics" (more than I do for full-length shots) and then evened out the skin tone to remove pores and blemishes.

Next is some lighting effects...notably the light source in the back and the highlights on the edges. I also added some pin-point reflections on the necklaces. Last touch is applying a soft focus filter.

From Schoolgirl to Schoolmarm?

Having gone pure fetish fantasy yesterday, today I went with something more in keeping with my age and body type. The red skirt was bought as part of a two-piece outfit from Kmart; I really like the skirt, though I have grown to find the top rather frumpy. The navy V-necked sweater is from Target.

The one give-in to youthfulness is the use of a scarf, tied in a floppy bow, as a headband. Does it work?

I should mention the shoes...the red patent t-straps from Payless, rapidly becoming one of my fave pairs. I always get compliment over on Flickr when I wear these.

I have a couple of shots I have to work up for portraits. Maybe later today or tomorrow.

Back to School

With Labor Day just a few short weeks away, Sissy Dani hauled out her school uniform to try on with some new accessories--a new headband, a new bracelet, a new wide red belt, and her frilly black petticoats.

FTR, I'm finally getting the hang of walking in those delicious white sandals after--what?--more than a year. I didn't stumble once today.

I cut this session short today when I realized one of the hazards of crossdressing in hot, humid weather, even in air-conditioning: Horses sweat, men perspire, women glow. But they glow a lot more because of the number of layers they wear! (Real women get to strip down to a lot less underneath in the summer; we sissies don't have the option if we want to look feminine!)

Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.

As always, more pics on Flickr.

From the Archives

Over the weekend, I was cleaning out some drawers and found five slides from my pre-marriage dressing days! I found a place that would make prints from them and then scanned the prints.

This is undoubtedly the earliest photo of myself in female attire I can find. I recognize the scene as my first apartment, and I took the shot with a wire attachment to the shutter (you can see the cable going up on the left hand side of the image). As I recall, I was trying to focus on my long legs--even then I thought they were my best feature. And isn't that a hot skirt!

Best as I can tell, this shot was taken at my friend Bobbi's apartment, probably by my other friend, Steve. It's probably from the same day as the others in the white dress. Steve wanted to try something a little "arty".

These two were taken at my second apartment; the blue dress, near as I can recall, was bought on a shopping trip with Bobbi. Gee, I wish I still had that figure! I may be wearing a waist cincher, but I'm not sure.

This shot undoubtedly is from the same session as the two other portraits in the red turtleneck. This might have been the last time I dressed before getting married.

Mesmerized at the Mall

High Glitz

I found this site through a link on a totally unrelated blog--it presents material from a book of photographs of child beauty pageants. I was struck by one thing--how much it resembled the work of Christeen, the sissy artist:

The site (and the book) is High Glitz.

Against the Wall, Green Eyes

Playing around with images, I created this fantasy image of myself...and this black-and-white portrait with color accents.

Casual But Dressy

I thought of this outfit as something to wear to a basically casual party--but one wear you wanted to make a "splash" by being just a little glitzy. Hence the denim skirt combined with the shiny blue top and the deadly blue spike pumps.

I've decided I really like the headband, especially with the red pageboy style...but I need to find some in lighter colors, but still with a bow or something attached!

More pics on Flickr...and maybe more dressing later this week!

Black and Silver

This is a different attempt at the little black dress, this time with a longer, more formal hem length. It's the plain black top from Kmart paired with the long black skirt from Wal-Mart, and the wide black belt. Accessories are black hose, my "formal" black pumps, and silver jewelry.

BTW, I have the worst luck with black hose! For the third time in a row, I snagged and ran a pair the first time I wore them! Last two times, I caught my heel in them while posing; this time, I caught the hook of the skirt while dressing!

I wasn't sure that last pose was going to work at all...but I'm actually quite pleased with it! More later from a second session today and, as always, additional pics on Flickr.

Harper's Bizarre

One last post for today:

The logo is the real Harper's logo, subtly altered to spell the homophone word.

Men We'd Love to See Feminized, Week 8

Daniel Radcliffe

I think you all picked a winner this week--isn't this just the sweetest?

Maid to Be

Well, as I said, we're beginning August with a trip to pure's my very tight maid's uniform, worn with my new fluffy black pettis and ruffled panties. Other accessories include fishnet hose and black mary-jane pumps. I love the way the pettis and skirt float over my thighs when I walk in this now.

The shots with boobs have been slightly edited, to remove the bra straps (I tried wearing with the straps down, but that didn't work) and enhance the cleavage. I'll have to see if I can a strapless bra that will still hold up my balloon falsies.

And now, for something completely different:

Here's every submissive sissy's dream--doing housework in her maid's uniform. Yes, I really made the bed while dressed!

A few more pics on Flickr. Tomorrow, something very different.
