CROSSDRESSING BALANCE

Crossdressing balance came into mind this week for several reasons so I thought I would write something on it. Everybody has to balance family time with work time along with other pursuits and crossdressing is no exception. Summer typically results in a crossdressing imbalance for some because warm weather and shorts preclude shaving legs for many. In addition there are lots of activities that crowd out gurly time. Personally I re balance my crossdressing mid September when I try to makeup for lost time dressing during summer. The hair comes off in two weeks and travel plans are being made so next is packing my outfits.

CROSSDRESSING BALANCE

There is more to crossdressing balance than hairy summers in shorts and the beach though. While crossdressing is important its not my only interest hence the need to balance it with the other activities. I just returned from another Duke & Rocco adventure that involved and out of state golfing trip with my BFF Ashley AKA Rocco. I use the name Duke. We traveled through four states playing 5 great golf courses in the process. We have known each other for 30 years after meeting at a Texas “T” Party at lunch with our wives. Since that time we have become great friends and belong to the same crossdressing club.

BALANCING THE CROSSDRESSING

Ashley gets out dressed more than I do because my crossdressing always involves traveling so cost and time are a factor. I achieve crossdressing balance by setting aside a long weekend each month that coincides with the monthly CHIC get together. I can dress 24/7 during that weekend but typically don’t preferring evening over daytime dressing. The exception is when we do a Las Vegas or San Francisco trip where gurly shopping moves up in priority. Its not that we don’t play golf we just alternate golf in the morning followed by dressing that night. The next day we shop en fem followed by dressing, dinner and many times a show. You can see the balance golf, gurly shopping, dinner & show.

COMPARMENTALIZING YOUR CROSSDRESSING

Crossdressing balance and compartmentalization also apply to myself and others I have known. In my case I compartmentalize my crossdressing with an all or nothing mind set. If I am going to crossdress it is all of nothing dressed completely head to toe. Its once a month and fully dressed or not at all. I know others who wear panties or other women’s garments under their male attire to work or other daily activities. They say its the feeling or sensation of the garment against their skin they enjoy. Me too but, its just going to make me want to dress so I avoid wearing them.

Wives and girlfriends also appreciate balance and compartmentalization because it gives them a better insight into what is going on and what to expect. It also lets them plan around or with your activity.

CROSSDRESSING IN LAS VEGAS

CROSSDRESSER IN LAS VEGAS

Crossdresser in Las Vegas is back and yours truly was there with my BFF Ashley from CHIC to get it started. After 3 months of solitary confinement we were ready for a crossdressing adventure it was just a question of where. When Vegas reopened and the Venetian announced their discounts it was a done deal for us. They opened on the 4th and I got there on the 6th late in the afternoon to get the lay of the land. Our plan was to dress Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights with golf in DRAB as Duke and Rocco Monday & Tuesday during the day. Crossdressers in Las Vegas in not that unusual but I am pretty sure there were only ones doing it that week. Rest assured we were the best dressed ladies anywhere in town as there was a sea of shorts tank tops and thongs to compete with.

CROSSDRESSER PASSING

Maybe Ashley the night she wore jeans but definitely not me overdressed absolutely as always! We were noticed for sure but nobody really cares so they observe, smile then drink some more. Some people wore masks but not in the casino’s and restaurants along with the bars. I did not devote the time it takes to put Ms. Micki together to wear a mask so did not. All servers and resort personnel wore masks at all times along with taxi drivers. There was constant cleaning everywhere all the time so Vegas is on it big time.

DINING OUT CROSSDRESSED

Crossdressed in Las Vegas may be back but not everywhere with some casino’s not open yet and mainly the anchor stores open in the mall. Others were scheduled to open June 12th and were getting ready. I think by the 4th of July everything will be open again.

 

Ashley suggested we stay within the Palazzo and Venetian hotel where we were staying to avoid having to mask up for UBER. Taking her suggestion I booked CUT by Wolfgang Puck at the Palazzo for Sunday night where we got an awesome booth. The server asked if it was a special occasion and I replied yes, my first Cosmo in 3 months! The servers although masked were wonderful treating us as ladies never missing a pronoun.

On Monday after golf was Italian night so we walked over to Canaletto restaurant in the St. Marks Square section of the Venetian Canal Shops. There weren’t any acceptable tables outside so we opted for one inside. The only available one outside was right next to the hostess station so we would be in a fishbowl all night. We were not comfortable with kids staring at us all night. YES KIDS! They were everywhere with parents escaping to Vegas for the inexpensive hotel rates and dragging their kids along masked or not. No wonder the divorce rate is so high in America. Maybe seeing gurlz Crossdressed in Las Vegas will convince them to leave the kids at home.

Anyway, we had a great Italian dinner and of course more Cosmo’s before calling it a night because of an early tee time Tuesday morning.

Tuesday night we went to Smith & Wollensky just off the Canal shops at the Venetian for an amazing steak dinner.

I had a bit of a fashion emergency when I wore the snake skin pumps for the first time. I broke them in using my freezing technique so they felt OK walking around my house but the tile at the Canal shops was a problem. They loosened up after a while and the heel started slipping which has never happened before. Thank goodness I keep a thin pair of ballet flats in my purse to switch. I did put the pumps back on for the grand entrance into the restaurant. It was a bit slippery walking on their tile floor but I made it to our booth which was the farthest one in the back.

They did not rush us so we took out time even chatting with the staff as the night progressed. We called it a night around 10 so we could leave early the next day for home.

 

CROSSDRESSED IN LAS VEGAS OBSERVATIONS

The town is coming back to life each day and more venues open each day. When I arrived Saturday afternoon the Sephora store next to the Venetian still had plywood over the windows. Monday afternoon they were gone and employees were stocking the shelves. There was a sign on the door stating they would reopen June 12th. The Fashion Show Mall  had Macy,s, Dillard,s, and Nordstrom’s stores open with a few smaller ones on Sunday. More smaller ones opened on Monday and the same at the Venetian Canal Shops. I expect this will continue daily until everything is open. I know many were waiting to see what the demand was before opening and were shocked at the bookings. The Palazzo and both Wynn hotels changed course quickly

Pack your bags ladies Vegas beckons!

CROSSDRESSING DIVA LAS VEGAS

Cross Dressing 101 is a page I created for those who are new to crossdressing to guide them along the journey of going out en fem. However it is written to include anyone interested in picking up some techniques they might not be aware of.  Cross Dressing 101 will get you ready but the decision to go out. It’s a decision only the cross dresser can make for themselves. Having said that sometimes a little push is needed to get them across the threshold which can be intimidating. Some years back there were conventions that you could attend in large hotels where you could dress in your room. Then you could venture downstairs to meet new friends. There was no Cross Dressing 101 back then so you just went downstairs no matter how bad you looked.

CROSSDRESSING 101 HELP

Thankfully there was always somebody that looked worse than you but the good news was there was a fix. In those days there were several hundred crossdressers all in the same hotel. That many captive prospects made it very profitable for vendors to set up shop. Once you made it downstairs to the vendor area you would start with Jim Bridges (Hollywood studio makeup artist) for makeover. Jim would strip off what makeup you had which was most likely all wrong for your skin type. He would educate you and apply the correct shades based on your age and skin tone. Jim had wigs but if not the right one he would borrow one from the wig ladies to complete your look. When you left Jim’s chair you were looking the best you ever could. Also  armed with instructions on how to do it yourself. I think in most cases you left with the new wig you were wearing (purchased) thanks to Jim. Jim also did seminars on makeup because it was impossible to remember everything he told you during the makeover. From there it was just steps to the jewelry folks to accessorize the outfit you needed to wear that night. Extra large shoes were available and some clothing along with some corset makers.

Unfortunately there are only a handful of events going on now that are similar in some ways but much smaller. The only one that I have attended and would recommend to a cross dresser 101 girl is Diva Las Vegas. It is different from the old convention formats with no vendor area or seminars downstairs but help is available. Their version of cross dresser 101 is to have appointments available at the malls for makeovers and some independent services that cater to cross dressers. The MAC  CROSSDRESSER MAKEUP counter at the mall on the strip is very popular and the artists are great along with being extremely cross dresser friendly. Amy at Just You  is a full service male to female cross dresser store close by where you can get pretty much everything you need.

Diva Las Vegas this year has been re scheduled from the original March dates to October 27 thru Halloween the 31st. Being that Halloween is the official cross dresser holiday it should be fun. There are many wives who attend with their crossdresser husbands who make it a vacation. There is probably no better time for a wife who fears being outed when seen with her crossdresser husband. Halloween is a good to go out with him in costume as a princess or Alvira. Last year I went to the CHIC Halloween party as Captain Morgana (Captain Morgans Rum) and there are many online costume stores to chose from.

CROSS DRESSER 101 VEGAS

The main reason I recommend Diva for crossdresser 101 girls is because of Diva’s Big Sister program. It is intended to help those needing someone to assist them getting around Diva. I have talked with many CD’s that want to attend but don’t know other crossdressers so feel intimidated going out alone. We have all had times like that especially in the beginning if you can remember that far back! The key is to sign up for the event NOW and ask for a big sister when you do. It is first come first served and they go fast so if you want one its better to do it right away.

I think when Las Vegas opens up again there will be a rush like a tidal wave some rooms could be a problem.

Be Safe! Get Dressed Have Fun!

CROSSDRESSING HUSBAND

CROSSDRESSING IN PLACE

Crossdressed husband along with crossdressers in general are in a bummer situation right now. The shelter in place restrictions are putting a real crimp in our dressing adventures. For us mature crossdressers it takes us back to the beginning of our dressing career. A time when most of us were pretty much closeted only being able to go out in carefully orchestrated outings. You were doing pretty good to get out a couple of times per year if the planets all aligned.

Crossdresser’s wives have much to deal with in general but in light of the current shelter in place orders you can add a caged lion to her load. When her crossdressed husband cannot let the genie out of the bottle he is apt to be a little irritable. Many a crossdresser’s wife wisely ship him off to a hotel for the night to deal with the she devil in him. There are plenty of rooms available most places but not much fun when you can’t socialize with anyone.

HEY WHERE IS EVERYBODY?

Things have kind of gone back a few decades with regard to the ability to go out with today’s restrictions. I don’t know which is worse, being a younger crossdresser and being confined to your house for the first time. Or being an older crossdresser who was in the closet for years then out and about freely then back in the closet again. My view is the latter is the worst situation and I know many agree especially those that were planning on going to Diva Las Vegas this year. The event was cancelled along with the Keystone Conference because of the virus shutdown. I had a first as the Palazzo Hotel cancelled my reservation for last week instead of me cancelling them. They closed the entire hotel and casino which has never happened in Las Vegas.

It’s not helping to have another couple of weeks to wait for the virus to go away. I am an optimist so I am planning my next adventure. I can tell you that this crossdresser husband is going to make it count so Las Vegas will be the likely destination. In the mean time I am making French Manicure fingernails to keep me busy and focused until I can launch again.

Hang in there ladies it will be behind us soon.

Best wished to all and be safe!
