I am in love with clothes shopping more now than I think I have in some time. I have found a new love in flared jeans. Of course, I can’t find them in the men’s stores, so I’ve been collecting Venezia flared jeans from Lane Bryant. I love their stretch denim as it’s so soft, comfy, and just looks really good. They also alter my shape sufficiently enough to where I don’t look quite as heavy as I am, which I plan on working on this summer. I have established that I now have 3 different pairs of heels I can easily wear to work under jeans, the highest being 4 inches, which is amazing.
A lot of friends and colleagues have noticed that I seem happier and more confident than before, which of course is true since I can be me, and it doesn’t affect anything else. I haven’t done the makeup thing, but continue to have my nails done and painted all the time, which I’m amazed I can still type pretty darn well. Today I’m going to have them brought back a touch though, so they don’t turn into “Chinese dragon claws” or something equally gaudy. Hint: buy OPI nail polish – it spreads well and wears forever. Darn stuff is practically bulletproof! It’s a bit more expensive, but darn well worth it!
I surprised someone else recently when they found out that I’m not only straight, but married – I get that perception from people sometimes, and it’s always amusing, because I guess they think that people cannot be unique AND have a normal life. The few times I’ve done all-out femme mode have been amusing in the regard that people are similarly shocked to find I’m straight as well. Sometimes I wonder if I’m not really bigendered though, as I feel equally comfortable either way. It’s different from being bisexual, so as not to get the two confused.
I am starting to lose a tiny bit of weight in my ab area, but my upper body has remained the same, which leads me to believe that my “moobs” are probably not going to go away even if I get lighter. That’s OK though…just gives people something else to wonder about. I thought about getting a corset made for me several times, and I have a feeling it would push whatever else I have left upwards, and end up with 38DD cups or something like that – HAR! At least the waist would be smaller though.
OH…..and Halloween is just over 4 months away! Get your GOOD supplies now, and do quit spending money on the cheap crap.
