Hi, I am Nicci from South Africa. A friend told me about the page and I am very excited to join, make new friends online and hopefully be able to meet some of the girls close to me.
I first dressed in my mom’s clothes when I was 5. I never realised that it was never going to stop. I am 53 now and I enjoy dressing more than ever. When I finally realised I was transgender, there was no chance to transition due to my profession and the fact that I would lose my work and family if I did. I lived alone for about 8 years and was a closet crossdresser at the time. Then I got married and had to throw away everything – she new nothing….
We divorced 9 years later and I moved into my own place again. I immediately bought shoes and lingerie and then got a wig. I was well on my way again. I plucked up the courage to contact a makeup artist and went for lessons. She helped me get all the correct colours for my skintone and I must say it was one of the best things I could have done. I could do my own makeup and that led to the next step. Going out in public as a woman. I bought some dresses online and some from shops. My first outing was to the movies. It is actually a great place to go as you can buy your ticket, popcorn and drink online and just collect it at the cinema. That was also the first time using the ladies toilets….
Now I still get a bit of butterflies when I walk out the house dressed up, but it is much easier. I normally dress on weekends and go to the shops. I have even been to church a few times dressed and that’s is where I got a great compliment. A lady told me in passing: “You look beautiful”. I guess she did not make me as a man! I was so chuffed.
I have had a quick look around and this looks like a great page. Hope to learn even more here.
Hope to chat to some of you!
