A Hodgepodge Submission
Who has a SO who borrows their dresses? And who has their SO lend them dresses along with the comment that she thinks it will suit you?
Recently, I opened up to my wife of nearly ten years about my desires (divorced from my first wife who never knew about my inner thoughts and feelings.) My wife said that she was a little surprised, perhaps mildly shocked, but what was a huge relief to me was that she was not at all judgmental or negative when I told her. In fact, she wanted to understand more about me and why. Can anyone answer the why question? I cannot. It’s just me and has been from an early age.
Anyway, moving along with this story, I began to openly buy and wear women’s clothing, makeup perfume and jewelry at home. Two recent dress purchases impressed her, enough so that she recently borrowed one for an afternoon outing we had. Last night, being Saturday, meant we were going dancing and she asked if she could borrow my tango dress. My heart melted when she said I had such good taste, and it was something she wanted to wear.
So the upshot was that she did wear it and she looked fabulous in it. So much so that a lady came over to us on the dance floor to comment on what a lovely dress it was. Being honest, I was a little envious the compliment was directed to her and not to me. I was feeling quite proud that I had found such a nice garment that garnered such praise, but part of my envy was in that I couldn’t wear it when we went dancing together—perhaps one day that might happen.
The point of my article is that we are having a few laughs and fun sharing our dresses with each other. She’s looking forward to joining me in prepping for a photo session with more of her dresses. She is a lucky girl, too; she’s doubled her available wardrobe as well. Sometimes everyone wins 😉
