One of my lifelong regrets is that i was unable to come out as transgender while still in my teens. Not only would i have been villified in my small rural England community had i done so but at that age i was still confused as to why i, a boy, wanted so much to dress and live as a girl. i thought it was a phase i was going through and that the more masculine i behaved the quicker the desire to be female would go. Of course, it didn’t work and i continued to be my feminine self in secret, always envious of the real girls i could see around me and the beautiful clothes they got to wear. None more beautiful of course than the dresses they wore for the school Prom or, at Universtiy, the college ball. i so wanted to join them in wearing a beautiful ball gown and so often, while dancing with my partner, wished it was me in her dress.
Well, it sees that it is Prom season again and Unique Vintage have some truly beautiful “high-low” dresses designed just for such an occasion and i love them all because while they are gowns, they still enable the wearer to show their legs to advantage. Here are just a few that i particularly like.
