www.sisterhouse.net

Going out in public may be the biggest crossdressing challenge that we will face. I probably am fearless because I have been out in public from the first time I fully dressed. Perhaps it was the circumstances as I went to a crossdressers makeover service and spent 6 hours being transformed into Tasi, the girl […]

Fashion Changes To Make As You Grow Older
www.sisterhouse.net

You should be considering fashion changes as you grow older but not what you may think. My inspiration came from Kristen Nichols, a fashion editor at WHOWHATWEAR in writing about a totally different subject, but it was like a light bulb went off when I read her article. It just seemed so a propos to […]

www.sisterhouse.net

When I read Judith Rasband’s column on Bohemian style in her August Newsletter, it embraced my feminine soul and I was reminded yet again that my image of femininity is surrounded by flowey skirts, bright patterns and an almost hippy look. Delightfully, somewhere between tradition and trendy, lies the beauty and fashion fun of Bohemian […]

Most of you know of Agatha’s Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” which was both a novel and the subject of two movies, the last produced in 2017 and available on Amazon here (watch the […]

www.sisterhouse.net

Yes, it’s all about the clothes, How often have we cross-dressers heard that sarcastic comment from the mouths of transitioned/transitioning women and it’s even echoed from the mouths of gender counselors too. Yet these same girls express their own lack of femininity in their dress. American women, in general, have become a nation of sloppy […]

Being a Girl at Casa Susanna
www.sisterhouse.net

Isn’t being a girl, simply put, our single most important desire and it’s not better expressed than in these photos from Casa Susanna. Casa Susanna was a getaway for cross-dressers in the 1950s and 1960s in Hunter, New York.  At a time when gender norms allowed for little to no flexibility, this safe haven allowed […]

Womanless Beauty Pageants Still a Big Hit
www.sisterhouse.net

Recently Stana of the Femulate blog reran and earlier post by Starla on Why Womanless Beauty Pageants are so popular. My interest goes back to the beginning of Sister House where I included womanless beauty pageants in my Comedy Theater as cross-dressing, particularly in this venue, is fun and can be funny although many pageants […]

Just Too Bad If You Are  Plus-Size
www.sisterhouse.net

OK, I’m a plus-size girl (3X) and yes, an apple-shaped one, so finding fashionable clothing is more than a chore for me at times. That’s the reason for my companion piece on “Why I Love Ebay”, but there’s more to the story. Just for definition, plus-size starts at size 14 and  the average American woman […]
