"I STILL Love Dressing" Memes

Image
  The most popular entry in this Blog has been, by far and away, the article about my series of posts on my Facebook page called The "I Love Dressing" Meme Of The Day.  In fact, it is SO popular that I am doing something here that I've never done before -- I am posting a sequel! This all started years ago when I was posting memes about crossdressing. I noticed that a lot of them used photos of GG women - seriously? If the topic is CDing, why use GG women?  So, I was challenged to use my own photos. I have put together well over 100 of these thus far, and am still adding new ones. For more of these, check out the previous Blog Entry, "I Love Dressing", or go to my FB page for daily updates! Stay Safe And Pretty, Sweeties!

Girls Just Wanna Go Shopping

Image
  Every now and then, you get the uncontrollable desire to do something -- like shrug off all other responsibilities and just go shopping!  Just such a desire overcame me last Saturday morning.  So I bundled myself up cozy and got an early start. I needed an early start, because it took me quite a while to decide on an outfit for the morning. (everyone who is surprised by this, raise your manicured hand!)  My preference is (as always) skirt and hose, or on a chilly morning, tights.  But then my OTHER preference it to blend in - not look like a Guy In A Dress.  So I went with leggings and a pair of comfy kitten heeled boots. First Stop - the Bank! I was determined to ONLY shop for Julie this trip - so I wanted to hit my 2 favorite places. The first was Ross Dress For Less, where I found a bargain on the Clearance Rack. Normally $35, I got it for $7!! Next stop was Dress Barn -- but it was no more! Just an empty store, right next to Wal*Mart. So not wanting to waste a trip, I went in and

One Holiday To The Next

Image
  As we approach the end of the year, it seems like the holidays are all bunched together.  Makes me think that eons ago, the People in Charge of Making The Calendar had a set amount of holidays to add, and when they got to October they realized they still had quite a few left - so they crowded them all in! 😁 Once the turkey left overs got put away, it was time to start in on the Christmas decorations.  But if you know me at all, you know that certain things cannot happen unless certain OTHER things happen. First things first - what to wear! Something feminine yet practical.  A casual yet comfy outfit of blue tank top, duster, skort, hose, and flats of course! Now that I was properly decorated, it was time to start in on the tree.  Normally I like to separate Thanksgiving and Christmas. But with all the heartaches and headaches 2020 has been bringing, I felt the need to echo the lyric of that Holiday Song - "We need a little Christmas, Right this very minute." Which cap to w

Just Like Riding A Bicycle

It was exactly a year ago I was last in the thriving metropolis of Chehalis, WA.  My bi-annual business trip was turned into an annual one thanks to 2020.  (For the uninitiated, read my previous Blog Post titled "There But For The Pandemic Go I")   It was 4 days of work from 6A to 7P, then dress for an evening on the town.  However, 2020 has made the options for "On The Town" rather limited.   Day 1, upon arrival, I actually had time to hit some of the shops before they closed at 8.  There are 3 Outlet Malls in the area, with most of the stores still open. Warmer temps made for no need of a coat I was impressed with myself this trip.  There was no hesitation to head out or enter a store.  Experience and confidence make for a wonderful combination. My usual haunt is Applebee's.  Good food, wine, and they stay open late.  Well, late-ISH for this town.   Ready To Unwind And the cleanest restrooms in town! By far and away the highlight of the trip was night 2 at App

Oh There's Good News Tonight!

  Great Outing and Good News of an Upcoming Event!   Your correspondent had a wonderful Girls Morning Out recently.  The Sister Friends (Sarah, Linda and Moi) met for coffee, chat, and bonding.  We got into some deep topics and it got emotional and it was WONDERFUL!! Such delightful dames!  Loverly Ladies! Wonderful Women! We talked about life, discussed Trans and cross dressing lifestyles, reminisced on past outings, and truly uplifted and encouraged each other.  I left that gathering literally floating on a cloud of love and support.  Thank you, Sisters. After leaving, I headed out to the grocery store to stock up on . . . groceries. The right mask can make or break an outfit Amazing how a cute outfit can make a seemingly bland task feel SO delightful.  And this outfit is my favorite Casual Gal look - denim skirt, tights (it's getting chilly here) and SO comfy wedge/platform type shoes. The other item - remember my post about my bi-annual business trips?   (https://www.blogger.co

Looky What I Found!

  So, I was digging through some old boxes and envelopes and I discovered 2 Photo CDs from many years back.  It looks like they are my first few times on my "annual business trip" I talked about in a previous post.   (https://juliemshaw.blogspot.com/2020/05/there-but-for-pandemic-go-i.html) These were from 2004 - the first recorded images of Julie Out Of Town.  I don't recall getting up the gumption to leave the motel room, though. And these are labeled 2006 - probably my 3rd trip.  And I know I did get out this time.  Maybe it was the new glasses that gave me the confidence. (giggle) And I know I've said this before - I REALLY miss that red dress!  So soft and comfy. (sigh) So over the years I know many things have changed - my make up skills improved, and my hair style changed a number of times - but the thrill of going out is STILL as exciting as it always has been Stay Safe and Pretty, Sweeties

Getting Out Is Hard - But Satisfying

Image
An unexpected opportunity recently popped up - a chance to go out after work!  Granted, our community has been fluctuating between Phase 2 and 3 for a while now, so it was difficult to find something to do.   With many places working on "modified hours" I had a hard time deciding what to do that would still be open.  Especially since I get off work at 5:30, home by 5:45, and not dressed and ready to go until 7.  That eliminated the mall, but selected stores and SOME dining places were available.   After filling up the tank, I headed up to Target to check out cami tops (found nothing) but did come across a cute bra on the clearance rack.  Which was fortuitous since I had decided to wear my long line bra this evening, and by the time I left Target it was binding and too hot!  So I did what any resourceful gal would do - I climbed into the back of my van and changed bras! Feeling SO much more comfy Then it was Applebee's - I figured since it is my Go To place when out of tow
