Whenever i can set aside a whole day for shopping, I dress completely en femme But with skinny jeans or flared dress pants and a low heeled bootie. Add a little makeup and voila! You’re dressed just like any other woman but most people won’t notice. But when you spend a half hour browsing thru lingerie while checking for your size or an hour looking thru the sales and clearance racks of cocktail and party dresses, the other women there do notice and usually do give me that soft smile back that tells me that I’m welcome there, kind of like letting me know, I’m just one of the girls. Your post reminds me so much of these very special times.
p.s. Your wife is a gem
