New Clothes & Other thoughts

If I’ve realised anything this weekend it’s that need/want more clothes as I can basically only wear the few items I own, it kind of limits the looks I can have. So I’ve picked out a few items that are potentially in my price range come payday. Granted I wouldn’t be able to afford them all at once, but perhaps I could gradually pick up a few items over the next few months. All the clothes are from H&M and would seem that I’m quite liking dark and muted colours at the moment. Oh and on a side note (and I hope not to sound to braggy or big headed but I’m really pleased with my figure, If I wear quite slim fitting clothes and (cough, cough stuff a bra) from the shoulders down I totally think I could pass as a girl.

The clothes I’ve picked feel a little boring and safe to me, they’re all quite same-y. I even purposefully skipped over a few things that I really liked because I own similar ones already. Perhaps I need to be a little more adventurous? The trouble is as I’m still in the closet and order all my stuff online it’s not like I can spend a day shopping and trying on things I wouldn’t usually buy. Maybe I just already have a style and know what I like. I’ve decided that I really like tank tops, but only with a cardigan or something over the top. I feel quite exposed with my arms bare, maybe it’s just because I’m not use to it, or because part of me still feels quite vulnerable when I dress as a girl. I find myself pulling my cardigan around me when I go in to the kitchen as the blinds don’t shut and I’m paranoid one of the neighbours will see me. It feels less obvious that I’m wearing girl clothes when I do this for some reason.   

I’ve also been playing around with makeup again, I still don’t own a lot nor am I particular good at applying it (really don’t have the hand eye coordination for eye liner) but I can see a bit of a girl starting to come out. All in all, that coupled with the figure thing, I’m feeling pretty happy with myself. 

 

Anywho here are some of the items I picked out.

For those days when you just have to be a French Mime. I really like tops with long sleeves and a low cut waist. I  actually have a guys leather jacket that absolutely love that is designed the same way, i.e. long sleeves, short waist. I think i've always liked it so much because that's a style I associate with girls and is something guy me can wear without getting strange looks

I'm still a little unsure of dresses and what would suit me, but I really like this.

I also like long dangly things and this looks like it would so comfortable just to curl of the sofa and relax in.

This isn't a dig at anyone on here, I love it when you guys all comment on my stuff. You are all always really supportive.  This is a dig at people who comment below TV shows I watch and  really don't know what they are talking about.

It's the big buttons that make me love this

H&M Biker Pants

Love the pocket zippers and the fact this this is a total rock chick look.

  1. I think you fashion will evolve once you become more confident. I saw it with Jake, he now adds splashes of colour and is less picky, it will come together the more you become comfortable with yourself. If you lived near me I would gladly share my professional knowledge ( I’m a beauty therapist) 😄

    • I could totally do with some help, professional or otherwise, but that will have to wait until/if I start coming out to people. I think I just need to figure out what does and doesn’t work on me.

  2. Can barely wait for your updates when those items arrive 🙂 and I agree with Claire, it evolve and come to you naturally, esp you have great foundations for a high classy taste in fashion 🙂
    Hugs,
    Nu

  3. I am in a very similar boat to yours. I am just starting to collect clothing, but my wife is restrictive on what she wants me to wear because she’s not ready (and may never be) for the world to see her as a lesbian. But: I have found that Target carries a bunch of nice stuff in their women’s department, and at least here in Jersey, the fitting room staff doesn’t even blink an eye if a “male” is taking womens’ clothes to try on.

    I also am not “out of the closet” so to speak, but I am slowly transforming my wardrobe with womens’ clothes that don’t shout “I’m women’s clothing!” e.g. slacks, and t-shirts. Once people get used to seeing me wear those without even realizing it, it will (hopefully) be easier for them to accept when I start wearing pretty blouses and bras (stuffed sadly).

    I wish you the best of luck in your transition, and hope that we can be friends.
