2-14     Every woman should own a bright red dress. The color red says ‘look at me!’ and ‘yes, I can’ or maybe even ‘yes I will.’ The color red sparks in us an enthusiasm and energy that increases the heartbeat and protects us from stress and fear.  And it’s Valentine’s Day. What color would you wear but red as we look at the Iconic Red Dress on Tasi’s blog

2-4     Today, we bring you a  very special Stylish Crossdresser, Christina Napoli, who is also an aficionado of the 1950’s fashion era. Her grasp of this “Golden Age of Fashion” is truly astounding.

1-12  A fashion exhibit is both fun and fascinating and you’ll want to see this one if you live in the UK.  The Photographers’ Gallery presents Under Cover: A Secret History of Cross-Dressers, a  rare selection of discovered, largely anonymous, photographs of men and women posing for the camera, using the apparel and gestures traditionally assigned to the ‘opposite sex’

Jen H wrote this piece for Crossdresser Heaven called A Perspective From The Other Side, a typical story of discovery and why it’s OK to have those strange feelings, even many years after discovery. We’ve included it in our section under Transgender Resources (Library) on The Wives Speak Out

Thomas (Dana) Bevin’s recent book (published 2015), on the Psychobiology of Transsexualism and Transgenderism delves into the science of transgenderism. It’s a complex tomb so this review of the book by Pat is a good summary of its contents

1-07     Winter brings us the versatile and stylish sweater dress.

12-23     I’m not here to decorate your world is a vivid example of learning about fashion from genetic women and you may be surprised at how snarky they can be. 65 women commented on Sally McGraws blogpost on styling a twinset and there are many lessons to be learned. Read on Tasi’s blog.
