A Rainbow Mermaid Dress – What every gurl needs.

..

Today I’m featuring this lovely hand made dress. You can learn more about Christina here: https://twitter.com/Interrobang_Art

You can also find her beautiful Etsy shop HERE.

We want to support Christina for a few reasons. First of all, she’s a wonderful and creative person. Second, her mum’s not been well and is recovering from surgery. And third she eats cheesecake for breakfast.

If you like her work drop her a line and support her wonderful designs. If you let her know you’re a crossdresser she’s going to look after you.

Making the most of summer.

As summer moves toward its gentle close, and the warming glow of the forest fires in the distance thankfully fade, I am forced to remind myself to make the best of the last weeks of this glorious summer.

What better way to celebrate the sun and move toward fall than by enjoying the soft flow and movement of a stylish and comfortable swing dress. I was saying this to myself as Sebastian sat, dejectedly at my table in the kitchen.


 

He was staring intently at his phone, a frown firmly welded to his face.

“What on earth’s the matter?” I said, pouring a glass of organic free range goats milk.

“It’s my sister, Charmaine” he said. “She’s so wonderful. But…”

“But what?” I asked.

“But she’s just posted a picture on her Instagram, and there’s a great big ring on her finger. She’s engaged.”

“What delightful news,” I said with a smile.

“Well, it would be delightful. You see she went to Cuba, a lovely little village, and met this wonderful man she’s fallen in love with.  She flies back every few months and is so in love.”

“But Sebastian, this is wonderful news,” I gushed. “I’m so happy for Charmaine.”

Sebastian’s sister is so sweet. She has been waiting for the right man so long, and finally her prince has come.

“Well, it would be wonderful. Except this last time she flew to Cuba she was supposed to be at her grandmother’s funeral, and cried off saying she was broke.”

“Oh,” I said.

“And since my mother’s now discovered Instagram, it’s only a matter of time till she learns that instead of planting my dear old granny, she was out gallivanting around the place getting herself engaged to a Cuban. I can almost hear the clock ticking.”

I spread the lovely dress out as I sat, and turned to Sebastian to reassure him.

“Darling,” I said, “I’m sure your grandmother wants nothing less than her grand daughter’s happiness. Besides, the old trout will never know. And your mother will get over it. Your sister has found something magical. and that’s really what counts, isn’t it?”

I know my readers well enough to know that you may have a suggestion to help me here. Help me out and use the comments to suggest what Charmaine should tell her mother.

 

Power it up with Pink!

It’s a wonderful time to color up your wardrobe with some pink sneakers. Here’s a few cool options. These are great for on the beach, or at the fitness studio.


Sebastian, my personal trainer, had always liked me to wear my pink trainers when working out. He tells me that when they are just behind my ears the color offsets the glow of my cheek. He’s a very naughty trainer.

Pink was not always a feminine color, there being several military uniforms of the Napolionic era that included pink trim. Only at the end of the 1800’s did the color begin to take on a feminine undertone. You can learn a little more about the cultural history of ‘pink’ here.

For a crossdresser pink offers the opportunity to introduce an overtly feminine accessory that softens the most manly of presentations. Remember, when buying femme shoe sizes add at least two sizes to convert to a male size. If you have broad feet this may not be enough.

Bringing your dressing into the workplace.

I thought I’d touch on something many people ask about.  So many of us confine our dressing to lingerie and club wear, and yet we yearn to embrace the feminine within us. This is a little like the person learning to drive practicing in a Formula 1 racing car.

There are many opportunities to enjoy a feminine presentation by adopting a somewhat androgynous look in our day to day life, or even in the workplace. So, today we’re looking at how we can bring aspects of dressing into the work place in subtle ways.

Now, if you wear a uniform at work, this may be a bit of a stretch. The same may be true if you’re working in an iron foundry. However, I’d love to see you get creative and even send in a photo or two of how you bring this one off. Remember, it’s as much about how you feel, as how you look.

Let me give you an example. If you work in an environment in which jeans is ok, try wearing a more feminine cut of jeans. Use a loose sweater with them, and you can still find yourself acceptably dressed for many workplaces.  If you were to loop a nice slim belt around your waistline, you’d have moved firmly into the realm of crossdressing – which is likely to be too much for your workplace. So, it’s a matter of finding the threshold and moving a little closer to it, to satisfy that part of you which desires to feel feminine.

If you can find an outfit that works for you, in the knowledge that if you added a wig and heels you’d look feminine, then you know you’re moving in the right direction. Personally, I love to wear a kilt now and then.  This is a great way to push the boundaries even further.  I understand that this is not going to work for everyone, however, it’s a fun way to push that threshold.

If you are using a little eye make up and a little blush now and then, this will take you even closer to that threshold. Be careful, you may not want to ‘out yourself’ by accident.

Be sure to send me a pic or two if you find you’re able to pull it off. Let me know if I can use them on the website.

I get to score tonight!

What a time of year this is. I am busy most evenings as we go toward Christmas. Tonight I’ll be scoring with the boys at the curling club. I do like to help them out when I can, and as you likely know I love to participate in team sports in Montreal.

Sebastian and Sylvester like to go curling in the winter evenings, and have in the past occupied my wife’s appalling friend, Amanda. I think they take her out of pity really. She joined a local curling team, ‘The Invincibles’. Sadly she’s unable to come to the rink anymore, since during last months team game her little group was knocked out in the semi final of the league matches, and she ended up in an altercation with the referee. She was escorted from the building after headbutting the referee, and has been asked to find another club.

Nonetheless, she’s still on my Christmas list. Regrettably my wife is travelling building an orphanage in Guatemala this month. This leaves me to keep the aweful Amanda occupied. You can see my Christmas list HERE for some Christmas ideas, if you need them. In Amanda’s case I have ordered her a copy of a travel guide book to Molvania. With luck she will emigrate. If not, a walking tour of eastern Europe’s oldest nuclear facilities is something that’s sure to bring a healthy glow to her.

You’ll see I also have a few ideas for presents for Sylvester, Bernard and the crew. I must say, since Bernard has been experiencing a few health issues this year he has become a little less social. He joined me for a glass of Bailey’s the other night and said he’s been seeing friends at his Arthritis support group all week. He said they got together and just clicked.

As I prepare for a wonderful Christmas I’ll be looking forward to messaging you from time to time. I have to tell you that I find this time of year lovely for experimenting with new clothing and a wonderful excuse for trying all sorts of new outfits. I hope you do, too!

Now, remember as we go into this season of goodwill, it’s a great time to join My Little Black Book and share messages of friendship with other CDs from around the world. You can do so here for just $2.95 a month. If you’re already a member, get those digits dancing and send a few good wishes to some random members out there, as well as the friends you’re already conversing with. We all love to get a surprise from one of our own.

Remember tonight is your last chance to vote for our Man Of The Year. So far, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is beating off all the others coming up closely behind. You can make what you will of that!

It’s going to be a fabulous holiday season, and the fun starts here. Step into Christmas in a pair of nylons and heels with me. Get it off to a good start by upgrading to Premium, if you haven’t already. Then click on the video below and enjoy the sound of a Canadian icon, Bryan Adams. The montage is something I think you’ll enjoy.

The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me...
The only way to listen to this is with the volume jacked up so high your neighbors complain. Enjoy Bryan Adams. What’s your look for the New Year? What inspires your crossdressing? Be sure to share your stories on http://FionaDobson.com.
Have you voted in our  ‘Man Of The Year’ poll? Now might be a good time to.

Some interesting Christmas ideas.

I don’t know how I’m going to squeeze it all in! All the shopping, parties, family events, and looking after so many members! Well, perhaps I should take my own advice and lubricate things with a little help from Amazon.

Here’s a few great Christmas ideas. I must say my idea of a wonderful Christmas would be for Amanda, my wife’s appalling friend, to emigrate to Molvania – though I doubt it’s likely to happen any time soon. And let’s face it, Pig And Pig Farmer would be unlikely to find another editor of her enormous caliber.

Enjoy my Christmas list and add some ideas of your own in the comments section.  FD

Who What
Sylvester, My mechanic just loves messing around in his workshop. If it’s not covered in oil and slippery to the touch, it’s just not his thing! Here’s a few ideas.
Sebastian. My personal trainer is a health nut. He’s all about vegetables, getting sweaty on the mat and working up a sweat. I hate to disappoint him. He’s going to love these yoga accessories.
Ali. Ali is often a dirty boy in my garden. He’s a wonderful gardener, but being a Syrian refugee is still getting things together here. I’m always happy to lend a hand.
Bernard. He’s a wonderful photographer and a great artist. He loves to travel with me on shoots and assignments for the advertising agency. Plenty of good ideas here. I had thought of giving him a carrot, in view of recent events but it seemed a little unkind.
Julie: She’s hard at it with our Admirer members. Always very diligent and communicative, I thought a nice little piece of technology would help her out.
Oakley and Katia. These two are easy. They love anything lacy and sexy – though Katia leans toward leather and studded.
Amanda: My wife’s appaling friend would do well to have a walking tour of Molvania. Taking in the oldest operating nuclear facility in eastern Europe, and meeting interesting people who have never visited a dentist sounds right up her street.
Everyone else! I never like to be caught off guard and find I’ve forgotten about a friends gift. With this in mind I always have a few Amazon Gift Cards about the place. Being able to pull one out and hand it to a surprise guest leaves me looking particularly generous and them feeling totally embarrassed at forgetting to bring a gift!
