SPECIAL NOTICES

Hopefully Last Time for Technical Issues

My apologies for the site downtown again. We had a problem with our security certificate which is now corrected. I don’t have on-staff programmer so sometimes I have to wait for my programmer’s availability. Hopefully we have all the backend problems corrected now

And New Humor below

7-16     One of the keys to good dressing is knowing your body shape and the type of clothes that flatter that body shape. We have all the answers for you in our Body Shape Compendium in the Library. But now we’ve made it even easier by helping you find a celebrity with your body shape. Justine Leconte walks us through this process in her latest video (scroll to bottom of article). The last step in that process is to create a Lookbook of your favorite celebrity’s style and use it when you go shopping.

Our All About Shoes section in the Library is simply amazing and chock full of useful and fun information. Just added are these tips on wearing heels but still being comfortable with these High Heel Hacks

7-13    The human female has so many more reminders of femininity compared to the human male and our tall girl correspondent, Marie Greene, explores many of them in Gentle Reminders of Femininity in the Dressing Room This is a must-read piece if you love being a girl and appreciate the feminine arts

7-09     The feeling of “being a girl” was never expressed better than through the photos of the cross-dressers that frequented Casa Susanna back in the 50s and 60s. See for yourself through this photo montage on Tasi’s blog.

7-08    Donnakelli has been out with the girls and their wives to many fun places in the last several months including the Cicada Club in Los Angeles and Gilley’s and Capo’s Speakeasy in Las Vegas. Here are her adventures.

7-04     It’s a very pleasant seven hours of girl time and girl talk as Marie and her friend shop and talk about their fashion finds under Tall Gal Chit-Chat in the Lounge

7-03    Accessorizing is a learned skill that trans and genetic women need to master. Sally McGraw gives us a primer in the art of accessorizing for a flattering look

7-02     Do you love to wear panties, then don’t miss Panties – A special Pleasure on Tasi’s blog. Carollyn Olson gives us her take on wearing panties 24/7 and then we look at how wearing panties can be especially exhilarating.

There’s a strong push to accepting the biological explanation as scientific proof for trans identity, but there’s a downside to this reasoning as we see in this article on Biology is Not Destiny. . You need to be aware of all sides to the argument.

6-29     Wind up your skirts at the movies is a new and exhilarating experience at the new 4XD movies. Join Tasi in her experience at the latest Jurassic World movie on Tasi’s blog

6-25     What are your sources of inspiration in choosing your clothes. Tasi explores these sources in what is called “Street Style Fashion”on TG Forum.

Our wives are our most important relationship and it’s important that we listen to them. It’s rare to have them speak but we have gathered some the their most important views in the Library under The Wives Speak Out. We have just added this piece from Crossdresser Heaven on the Insecurities of Loving a Crossdresser. It’s most insightful.

6-21     One of my bucket list items has always been to participate in a PRIDE parade and my chance came this month in Merida in I Rode the PRIDE Float on Tasi’s blog. Here’s a chance to see how PRIDE is celebrated across the border.

And if you love Womanless Beauty Pageants as I do, then don’t miss Womanless Beauty Pageants Are Still a Big Hit also on Tasi’s blog

6-05     In Bitten by the Youth Bug or alternatively are my clothes age-appropriate for my advancing years, we explore how mature women have become style icons. One of my favorite sections on Sister House is Femme d’Çertain Age in the Dressing Room which focus’s on fashion and style for the over 50 women.

You would think that being older, wiser and more stylish would be a given, but not so. In discussing fashion faux pas’ of trans women, high on the list was the perennial favorite of not dressing your age. We show you how older women can dress stylishly without looking like a millennial.

6-03    It’s with great sadness that I report that Rose’s Repartee has ceased publishing. Repartee is a British TV/CD magazine that I wrote for, first in the printed edition and most recently in its online version. Repartee has been the premiere magazine for the transgender and crossdressing community in Europe for 27 years. Read the whole story here.

We explore the problem of shopping for clothes if you are a plus-size woman in Just Too Bad If You Are Plus-Size on Tasi’s blog

6-01      Just updated All About Hosiery. Everything you ever wanted to know about hose and some really great illustrative videos
