Rose Quartz and Penny Pincher Fashion

Pink is of course my favourite colour as it is with most sissies and many transgender M2F people like me.  So, having discovered that Pantone recently declared Rose Quartz as the colour of the year, i was delighted and even more so when my eb browsing on the theme brought me to this posting on Penny Pincher Fashion.  There are some lovely items, all in Rose Quartz with a variety of style to suit almost everyone.  It is well worth taking a look.

LA-LA-LACE

i simply adore anything in lace and this look from Hapa Time blog is no exception.  The skirt length is enticingly short and the low back is also so very sexy.  Coupled with the gorgeous black stiletto heels, black jacket, faux fur scarf, black bag and watch, the dress makes for a terrific look.

The bodycon dress is from Charlotte Russe and is a sexy halter style comprising stretchy, nude-lined lace sculpts topping a scalloped hemline with a banded neckline that buttons behind the neck. Two sleek straps add a fab finishing touch as they sweep down the open back.  Only $52.99, the dress is a steal!
Also available from Charlotte Russe, the Cut-Out d’Orsay pumps are in faux fur and have a cut-out twist in the d’Orsay style.  With a magnificent 4.75″ stiletto heel, these pumps are an absolute bargain at just $25!

Two great winter looks from Atlantic//Pacific

I really do like the stylish looks that i find on Atlantic//Pacific blog.  They are almost always both elegant and sexy.  Here are just two more examples of the styles posted recently.
The first features over the knee boots that are really fashionable at the moment and whch i really love and would like to own (where oh where can i find a sugar daddy to buy me a pair?) but i really do love also the gorgeous cape and flared dress.
The cape is an old one but similar styles are available from Topshop, Finders Keepers, and Charles Gray London.  The Over the Knee Boots are from Dolce & Gabbana and have a delightful 4″ block heel.  The dress is the Genetic Mini Dress from AQ/AQ and is worn with a Skinny Rib Turtleneck from Vince.
The second example features a beautiful Jacquard coat, dress and shoes that would enable me to show off my legs.  The coat is by Alice + Olivia but apparently is no longer available. However a Jacquard skirt in the same style can still be bought.   
The dress is a Fit and Flare style such as the ‘Feather Ruth’ Fit & Flare Dress from French Connection or the Sleeveless Fit & Flare Dress from Adelyn Rae and is worn with either the PORLA EMBROIDERED COLLAR SWEATER or the ‘Porla’ Embellished Collar Wool Pullover, both by Alice & Olivia.   The shoes are the ‘Jennelle’ Mary Jane Pump from Nine West and exhibit a lovely 4″ high stiletto heel.  The hat is the Winter Widow Veiled Cap by BEX nyc and the sunglasses from Prada.  

Pants

Those people that know me or who follow this blog regularly will know that i rarely wear pants of any kind, preferring to show off my pins by wearing a short mini-skirt or skort.  I do wear skinny jeans on occasion, usually if i have to be in the nothern hemisphere during winter but dress pants are not usually my thing.  However, here are a couple of looks i have recently encountered that i would definitely wear.
This first look is from Atlantic//Pacific blog and it may be the gorgeous red coat and red heels that i like most but the olive pants offset the red so well and together the combination looks smart and elegant.  The Oversize Cocoon Coat is from Carven, the pants from Phillip Lim, the Toeless Caged Pointy Toe Pump from Christian Louboutin  and the Lady Web small leather shoulder bag is from Gucci.  Apart from the bag which is available from Net-a-Porter, all are available from Nordstrom
The second look, found in We Wore What blog, is less striking in terms of its colour impact but i like the pants because they are skin tight and would enhance my legs.  The colour combination is subtle neutral tones that work really well together.
The SIA CARGO PANT in KHAKI is from SCK The Label, the Talen Bootie is from Raye and available from Revolve, the Vienne Shawl Collared Belted Cashmere Coat is from Michelle Waugh and the crop top is from Asos.

 

Walking in Heels

Walking in heels is not something i have difficulty with these days, in fact i really do enjoy walking in heels and given the choice i would wear nothing esle.  However, Mistress Ana insists i wear flat heeled shoes when i am working in her house so as to protect the floor.  
Nevertheless, it was not always like this and i can remember trying to walk in the first pair of heels i ever owned.  I was only 10 years old and had recently spent time with a female cousin 6 years my elder, who had enjoyed dressing me in her clothes.  She enjoyed it and so too did i.  So much so in fact that she donated me a pair of her stilettos that she no longer wore because they were to tight for her. 
They were a perfect fit for me though and i wore them at every opportunity only to stumble all too often.  Practice makes perfect though and eventually i mastered the art of walking in heels.  However, the other day i ca across this article and immediately thought of other transgender people or cross-dressers that might not yet have mastered the art of walking in heels.  The article is in “Pure Now” blog and is well worth a read.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It starts with the suggestion of starting small and gradually building up to a pair of 6″ heels and offers tips on how to break in the heels before going on to deal with shortening your stride, walking in a straight line and taking advantage of chairs.  Read the article, have fun and practice, practice, practice!

 

Roxie in a Flap!!!!!

A belated happy christmas and best wishes for the New Year to all of my readers.  i apologise for not posting Christmas greetings before now but i almost missed Christmas altogether.  On December 18th i had just finished a spell wotking at a mine in remote south eastern Chile, close to the Argentine border.  The nearest airport was 4 hours drive away and having left the mine at 7.00am n the 18th for a flight that afternoon back to Santiago where i would overnight before boarding a flight home to Australia on the 19th, we arrived at the airport to find that due to an aviation workers strike all flights were cancelled and the airport was closed indefinitely!
Imagine the state i was in at that point, no way of catching my flight home just a few days before Christmas and with everyone travelling at that time, i had no guarantee of getting another flight that would get me home in time for Christmas.  From the airport, it was 25 hours by road to Santiago so i contacted my travel agent and she was able to get me on the Monday flight.  From that point, it was a case of driving solidly for 2 days to get to Santiago at 10.30pm on the Sunday night for my 1.00pm flight home on Monday.
 i finally arrived home at midnight on December 22nd with only 2 days then to prepare for Christmas which was a hectic affair with family including all 5 grandchildren.  A terrific time was had by all both Christmas eve, Christmas day and Boxing day and we had to take Sunday out as a quiet day to recover.  One good thing though was that my Christmas presents to myself had arrived before Christmas and i was able to go and collect them from Mistress’house on the 23rd.  They were the two “Flapper” dresses that i had ordered from Unique Vintage.
i was so thrilled that i dug out a “Santa’s Little Helper” costume i have had for a long time and dressed up in it to open my gifts to myself, not before posing for the camera and doing a bit of a jig!
Next, i treid on the red “Flapper” dress.
It fits really well and i love it but discovered tat i couldn’t wear a bra with it.  However, i am delighted at the way my boobs and cleavage show in it.  So delighted i was that i even put some Scott Joplin ragtime music on the hi-fi and had a bit of a dance!
Finally, i tried on the black dress and immediately fell in love with it also.  The ragtme music was still playing and i really got into the swing of things in this dress.  Altogether, they made for a lovely Christmas!
