Hi everyone! It’s Sarah here. I am a 53 year old married MTF crossdresser who recently went out shopping en femme to the mall for the first time! I was very nervous, but once I went through with it the whole experience was exciting and liberating. My wife was away visiting her daughter and granddaughter. I took full advantage of dressing up around the house with the blinds closed.
The day before she came home I mustered the courage to go out en femme! I was both super nervous and excited. I wore Hue leggings, Vans floral high top sneakers, and my wife’s cute white shawl to the mall. I started at JC Pennies and found a cute pair of black ankle boots. I then went to the clearance rack and found a beautiful wine-colored long-sleeved top for 75% off! I also picked up some nice tops at a huge discount! Did I mention that I love clearance racks and online thrift stores?
At the check out a lady behind said, “Excuse me Miss, did you find that on the clearance rack?” referring to my wine colored top. In reply, I said “yes” accidentally in a male voice 😆! I quickly corrected to a female voice. I am sure I was clocked but didn’t really care. It was funny to hear her reply: “Oh, I didn’t see anything like that on the clearance rack!”
The sales associate was very kind and friendly. We engaged in small talk about my great clearance rack finds and we wished each other a happy new year.
In the main mall I saw a cute place that sold earrings. The young sales associate was sweet and fun to chat with. She helped me to pick out some hoop earrings and feather earrings. She complimented me on my Vans high top sneakers!
I was totally over the top happy to get a compliment! I mentioned that I had gotten them used online. It felt exciting to be complimented and to be able to interact with kind and pleasant people at the mall. It was way easier than I ever expected! I went home and had a blast trying on my new boots and tops with a skirt that I purchased online.
I am glad that I was able to have such an amazing experience my first time out! I look forward to sharing experiences and giving/getting support and advice from my fellow crossdressers. It was wonderful being able to express my true self.
Love, peace, and happiness to my CDH community members!
