FEMININE CURVES FOR CROSSDRESSER’S

This new shapewear garment is the next evolution of the Veronica line! It’s an outstanding piece of work as the testimony from Robyn Michaels states.

I cannot begin to tell you how I much I love the new Veronica 6 Open Bottom Girdle.  But I will try!

I love the romance and feminine glamour of vintage fashions from the 1950s and 1960s, especially my preference for wearing garter style stockings rather than pantyhose or thigh highs.  The new Veronica 6 has everything girls like us could want with an open bottom girdle.  The six garters keep the seams of my vintage nylon stockings nice and straight which is important for making a good impression when out clubbing and dancing the night away.  And the visual effect that the padding provides makes every dress style that much more alluring and feminine.

And I must admit to a greater sense of confidence in my appearance when wearing the Veronica 6 when out at more public places like restaurants and events.  Even women take notice of the “curves in all the right places”.  And the look is very “natural” and not artificial looking at all.  The attention to detail (delicate lace trim at the hem of the girdle) also was noticed and greatly appreciated by a gentleman admirer who appreciates a girl who dresses to impress. 

The Veronica 6 open bottom girdle is pin-up perfect, too!  Classic glamour from Classic Curves International…what more could I ask for?

STANCE COMPACT TRIPOD FOR IPHONE

I discovered this little gem the other day and will be trying it out on my San Francisco outing soon. The remote is Bluetooth wireless and I will be testing how far away it will work.

I like the fact that it is compact and light weight while being machined from aluminum for durability.

This way instead of designing a 10 foot selfie stick I can take pictures from that distance with this remote. I love the way I look from 10 or 20 feet away.

 

 

Fox Caitlyn Jenner Interview April 24th

news-caitlyn-jenner

Monday April 24th Caitlyn Jenner will be on the Tucker Carlson show at 8:00pm.

I will definitely  be watching both to see how Tucker approaches this subject on his inaugural show for this time slot and Caitlyns answers now that she is post op.

Caitlyn’s decision to transition is her business and I hope she finds happiness in life.

What concerns me is something she may not have any control over unless she specifically addresses it which, is her being a spokesperson or representative of the Transgender Community. This I fear is the easy route for the media because Caitlyn is definitely the most recognized Trans person in the world. Simply put her story is not everyone’s story that they conveniently list under the Transgender label. There are many of us with no interest in SRS and have put our dressing in a place where it is working for us. We are heterosexual crossdresser’s most married with family’s who dress one or two times a month and that is it. I hope they mention the different groups under that Transgender label.

I have seen many positive changes as a result of Caitlin’s going public one of which is a generally more acceptable feeling with the public. People seem to have a more accepting attitude towards me when I am dressed out in public. When transgender is the topic people are more positive aside from the women’s bathroom issue. Maybe they think we are all former Olympic Gold medalists? NOT!

If it was somehow up to me to decide who should be the official spokesperson for our community I can think of no better representative than Caitlyn Jenner. I might not agree with every position she may take but I think she is doing good things for us as a rule.

I will be watching Monday night and hope the interview has a positive impact on our community.

MOBILE WIGS

IMG_3210

Here is one that the crossdresser ladies going to Diva Las Vegas might find interesting from the late Jo Ann Roberts about 20 years ago. It helps keep your wig from getting squashed while packed in your suitcase. All you need is a plastic shoe box from any Home Depot type store that sells closet organizing stuff.

Wig Box

Mine measure 14 x 8 x 4 but if you wanted to put two or more wigs into one box you could increase the size but, I would not recommend that.

Once you remove your wig from the head stand holding it from the hairline in one hand, place your other hand inside the wig to support it.

Remove Wig

 

Place a  kitchen trash bag over it so that one of the bottom corners of the bag is directly over the top of the wig.

Set the bag on a table or flat surface pulling your arm out carefully then curl the excess bag around itself gently letting the air out of the bag so it will fit in the shoe box.

Packed Wig

 

If done correctly when removed the wig will look just like it did when it was on the head stand. The box has sufficient room it it that the wig does not get crushed while traveling.

When you arrive at your destination remove the wig from the box and bag then and place it on a collapsible stand as pictured. Mine are wire but you can get plastic ones also. Another option is just to buy 1 quart sodas and place the wig over the bottle. Yet another would be to use wine bottles but then you have to hold the wig in one hand while drinking the wine with the other. We blondes have trouble doing that many things at once. especially in front of a mirror!

DIVA LAS VEGAS 2017

It has been dlv06smany years since I have been to any type of crossdressing event having lost interest in the rubber chicken dinners and endless recognition awards. I have pondered Diva Las Vegas for some time because they say it is not like the conventions but rather a vacation. I have decided to  attend this year so I will know in about two weeks or April 1st.

It sounds like a lot of fun but will take some getting used to because it takes place all over all week long. They have a texting system set up to keep everybody posted on events and changes. I like the idea that you can opt in or out of events leaving you time to do what you like. You can find out more at their website http://divalas.vegas/

It starts next Sunday so don’t wait too long to register if you are thinking of attending.

BAKING YOUR FACE!

Just discovered this on Jaclyn’s youtube.com channel and although I have not tried it yet thought I would pass it on. She is great with makeup and I have learned a lot from her but prefer using cream foundation and contour cream as opposed to powder. I thought it was so cool that baking was something from the DRAG community. Once you are on her channel brows some of her other topics she is awesome for eye makeup.

TGIRL ROAD TRIP!

With Diva Las Vegas just 3 1/2 weeks away I thought traveling girls might appreciate my recent discovery.

The pictures below are of my wig on a 13 inch head to give you an idea of how much space there is inside the case. Use 18 inch head for long wigs and 13 or 15 for smaller heads. I purchased this size because I hate my old boxes that are only are only 12 inches tall so the hair gets smashed down when traveling. Using a 13 or 15 inch head with the 21 inch box gives me plenty of room so the top stays looking great,

I got mine from Amazon.com but you can also go to Dini direct at  http://diniwigs.com
