A Hodgepodge submission

Many of you have been out in public more than I have, and while I’m no expert, I believe this may help some others avoid problems of their own.

Over the last year, I’ve expanded my wardrobe tremendously.  When I started out, I was in total stealth mode. If this is you; here are my two words to help—Wal-Mart and JC Penney. They both have in-store pickup options. You can order with your wife or SO name and put yourself as the pickup person. When you pick up, you won’t ever receive a second look or judging look. They won’t care; they just want to go home.

JC Penney is great for shoes/boots. They carry most of their styles up to a women’s size 12, and they have many clearances sales. I’ve rarely paid more than $25 for very nice shoes and boots.  The only thing with Wal-Mart is the actual size verses the listed size. If it looks like a Chinese company made it, then order 1 to 2 sizes up.

If not in stealth mode, obviously Amazon but Venus has been absolutely incredible to me.  They carry most of their dresses and tops up to at least XL and many up to 3X. Dresslily is ok, but watch the sizing.

I had problems finding rings that fit and were affordable. Check out Dreamland Jewelry; they have most of their rings up to size 14. They’re affordable, and the quality is good as well.

Hopefully this will help someone out.

    Some interesting suggestions / thoughts even for those of us living in a different part of the world. In the UK I have used the on line order and collect from store from a few budget clothing stores and even purchased in person whilst in drab for items like panties and camis. What I have not got the nerve / confidence for yet is purchasing something like a dress in person plus the extremely rare opportunity to do so. What I do find a problem with is being short but not slim it is not easy to find dresses that… Read more »

    I’ve been out for several years now and find I’ve been enjoying peace with myself. I too am in my later 50s. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really care what others think. I’ve been complemented many times as to my composure and dress; even at my church by my pastor. Go for it and be who you are.

    Thanks Casey
    In Australia I’ve used pick-up services at Target and Big-W with no problems. I use my name ‘Gerry’ to order, which could be male or female, and I only have to show the confirmation email on my phone.
    But lately I just buy everything in store en femme
