I’m delighted today to share a guest article from a lovely lady on the East Coast. Her fabulous style is matched only by the charming and witty writing she does at SXYCDGRL. Please welcome her to Crossdresser Heaven, and share your thoughts in the comments below!
Do you dress to pass and blend?
Or do you dress to stick out ? What is your goal when you are crossdressing ?
For me, I guess it is a little bit of both, it just depends on the occasion. Where am I going ? Is it out into the vanilla world ? Or am I going to a wild CD/TG party ?
If it is out into the “real world” I do my best to basically blend in, I take my cues from real women. When out in public I feel the need to “represent” our community the best way that I can , so I dress accordingly & appropriate for the venue, weather, etc. I keep it simple, like this picture taken on a trip up to Boston, just some leggings, a plain tee, jacket & minimal accessories. I guess you could call that my “blend mode” When I am out dressed like this, I know I am not drawing any unwanted attention and I am confident. Dressing in what you “feel good” in seems to always win for me. If I’m not feeling right, it’s time for a wardrobe change.
Sometimes though I really want to let my girl flag fly high, and I will have a little fun. Especially if I am headed to a big CD/TG event and I know the gals are going to be dressed for a good time.
Like this pic, taken at one of the big CD/TG Events in New Hope Pa called Raven. Here the gals throw an “Oscar Style” red carpet party, some dress to the nines in gowns, yet others will come in almost full fetish gear. So to me this seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally wear that Tu Tu Skirt I bought. And it’s a CD/TG party so why not have fun with it right? I edged up the outfit with a bold colored moto jacket, and my favorite chunky heeled combat boots to give me a funky grunge look. This is something I would never actually wear out in public, so sometimes at these events I like to push the envelope a bit. Am I belnding ?? Not at all. And there I guess it does not matter anyway, the point is to have fun at these events.
So in the end, I guess it depends on where you are going, and what you are doing. I cant tell you what to wear, but I can say that when you step out the front door, you are representing me, you, and our entire community so do us all proud and leave the fishnets at home when your headed to the mall. When you go out in public do you dress to blend in ? Or stick out ?? Ad your comments to the comment section xoxo.

I LOVE this! I just want to blend, honestly. I LOVE “jeans and a T-shirt” kind of look. Simple, fun and just wanting to live life.
Yes I try hard to blend in with everyday activities but still enjoy dressing risque when going to a tg event or club
I aim to blend. If I get ‘spotted’ I feel I’ve done something wrong, ..missed something. I try to be as passible as possible’ at all times. I actually don’t like to get noticed, it makes me feel cheap and I feel awful about it, I prefer to move freely and not garner any attention.. It’s – Then – that I know I’ve got it ‘right’
When I go shopping I dress to blend in, all my clothes are womens when I go out, either shopping or lunch, even to the Dr. I dress very conservative, jeans or pants, always have my bra and panties on too, I have blouses that aren’t so noticeable, but still womens. Plus I found some really cute ankle boots with a 3.75 heel, u wear those all the time, even with my wife, she loves them too. Something funny happened last week, I was going out with my wife I grabbed a shirt, and I couldn’t button it because I… Read more »
