Stop the presses! I need to share something deep and shocking…. I am not a cross-dresser. Bear with me, it’s not that radical a statement. I hate the term ‘cross-dresser’, it sounds like a angry wardrobe lady. It’s one of those phrases that has been created by a man to describe something he doesn’t understand.… Continue reading [Philosophy] The Perils of Being a T-Feminist
Don’t worry, this isn’t one of those mopey ramblings, but instead a quick look at the aftereffects of a dressing session from the perspective of a gender confused mid-life crisis-er. I’m still coming down from what, to be honest, were probably two of the most fulfilling days of my life so far. Suddenly, after all… Continue reading [Philosophy] The Five Stages of Taffeta Grief.
I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up I tended to overdose on good things. Too many sweets, too many crisps, too much video games, I’d embrace and exceed, in an hedonistic way, all of things that sparked off my pleasure centres.

I’m calling this one a fashion blog but bear with me on this. I’m in the enviable position of having a double session of dressing happening imminently and, as always, my body is working very hard to betray me on this. I’ve managed to sprain a muscle in my hand, which is extremely painful and… Continue reading [Fashion] Perspiration and Inspirations
