09-25    Have fun reading Tasi’s Musings for October. We talk about Mexican beer, mistaken identities in the “Bathroom Wars”, news you may not have heard, what’s going on with “Transparent”, some great fashion articles including one on the use of color, and some great humor including a Womanless Beauty Pageant and a Pinterest page on “House Husbands

09-23     The conflict between cross-dressers and transsexuals/fulltime trans girls over the use of the term “transgender” continues. Maybe we need a new term for those cross-dressers that are neither fetish dressers nor sissies. We explore the use of Gender Fluid as an alternate definition in this new section of the Library under transgender resources.

09-19   Tasi  touts the adaptability and style of the bell sleeve. Whether on tops or dresses the bell sleeve adds a feminine boho touch to any outfit. With different accessories and fabrics they can work on anyone and go anywhere. Check out this primer on how to wear bell sleeves and look fabulous on TG Forum

09-12      Mandy’s adventures in the Out and About section of the Lounge is based on a series of videos by Mandy White, a UK-based trans woman, who enjoys shopping, clubbing and the everyday activities of a normal single woman. The stories are not unlike mine and probably yours too and they express the joy of being a woman in a woman’s world. If you were ever afraid to step out the door, these videos show you how easy it is and what rewards await you.

09-11     We try to improve our posts/articles as time marches on and we have done so in our Comedy Theater in the Family Room (right sidebar) by adding a special feature on gender-swapping roles in the movies and by adding a link to our Pinterest page on Crossdressers at Walmart (and a few other places too). Scroll to bottom of article

09-10     Check out this short but cute video on the history of high heels over the last 100 years. Scroll to the bottom but enjoy some great info on shoes on the way down

And talking about shoes, check out the shoe trends this fall in Fashion News

You’ve heard that Age is Just a Number, but more so for beauty queens as we look at some beauty pageants for the mature women in Femme d’Certain Age, and they are beautiful.

09-05     DonnaKelli  talks about dresses for special events since she attended one in August and has two more approaching in October.  Also the make-up and jewelry to accessorize daytime into evening. And introducing Michelle Popkov, a tall t-girl with style

09-04      The secrets on how to dress your outfit up or down are now revealed to you. From casual to dressy, these lessons can be learned for any outfit including the tiny style details that you don’t think people will notice, but they do. Check out Putting It Together in the Dressing Room

09-03     To really understand transgenderism, we need to look into  the Foundations of LGBT Normalcy and this essay by E.S.Carpenter talks about LGBT from a Historical, Psychological, Biological and Religious Perspective. It’s a long piece (9600 words), but it provides all the evidence and argument needed to refute the hateful detractors of the LGBT community. It’s part of our larger essay  on “All About Transgenderism”

Love Wonder Woman. Vera Wylde shows us how to put the costume together for her cosplay at ComicCon. Scroll down to the costume. And we have added a history of the costume (lots of changes over the years) and a fun video of the many WW costumes at a recent Comic-Con.

08-29     If you love the 1920s styles, then this addition to our article on fashion in the 1920s with 50 street scenes is just your ticket. I just love these photos.

08-27     The World of Draq is closely entwined with the trans community both in history and fashion so we talk All About Drag starting with the Queen of Queens, Ru Paul

08-23     Tasi’s Musings for September is available in the Library with our usual mix of news you may not have heard about. a media article, some interesting fashion tidbits and of course, humor to keep you laughing. Take a look.

Your Face and Body Language is so important when presenting female and our newest author, Rita Doyle, talks to this subject with a few good examples of how to cross your legs when sitting or standing.Also check out our post on Feminine Presentation  in the About section of the Library.

08-22      America has struck out in fashion and Tasi tells us why in this TG Forum article, There Is No Joy In Mudville.

08-20     We’ve updated our Trans Women in the Fashion World in the Library to include many new Trans Divas. Check out these amazing women.

08-08     The style lessons are great, but the humor is even greater in Style Lessons from Absolutely Fabulous  on Tasi’s blog.  You have to see to believe.

From the Housemistress

TasiAll Bladders Matter!

According to the Republican-controlled legislatures in North Carolina, Mississippi, and Kansas, transgender Americans should start developing ninja-level bladder control skills, because whole chunks of the South and Midwest are now, officially, “No Trans Zones.”  Thanks to new, “religious freedom,” laws in those states, we’re no longer allowed to enter the gender-specific restroom, changing room or locker room of our gender identity.  We have to use the facility that serves the gender on our birth certificates.
