No rants on Covid, Trump or life in general, I promise, but a quick intro to explain why I haven’t written much lately. Actually I have, I have a gorgeous post about fetishes I’ve been trying hard to finish for at least six weeks, and given I normally sit down, bang out a post in… Continue reading [Fashion] Delayed Frock Tales 1, the Bombshell and the 1976 Housewife
Yeah, I promised Frock Tales and I will deliver, but I felt in the mood for a little introspection, especially this time of year and ESPECIALLY given the ‘way past its expiry date’ year this has been. What you’ve got to realise is that I write this blog from a single person’s perspective, and being… Continue reading [Philosophy] Building with Pink Lego
I did promise some Frock Tales, and rather than start at the first outfit from the three sessions I have had since I documented them (whoops, sorry!) I thought I’d start with the last look I did at the last session, Saturday 5th December. And there’s a very good reason for this – it’s a… Continue reading [Frock Tale] I *will* sell this house today!
Well, the second lockdown was as much fun as stomach flu. For many reasons it just felt worse than the first one; at least with the first one it was something new. I don’t know about anyone else but I had that weird time-dilation effect; they announced the second lockdown whilst I was in the… Continue reading [Fashion] Merry Girlmas and a Happy New Vaccine to you
Alcohol. Pretty much the cause of every one of my more entertaining tales over the last, well, to be honest, thirty-nine years. Yeah, we start drinking early in Bristol; I actually quit drinking cider when I was fifteen after literally crawling half a mile home after ten too many Woodpecker ciders (or was it Diamond… Continue reading [Fashion] Oh, do stop wine-ing, dear…..
Given the state of the world right now I thought it was time to have some fun rather than the usual goth-like philosophical ramblings of a 51 year old gender confused idiot. And given I’ve done two sessions in pretty quick succession and, for the most part, kept all the juicy pictures to myself, I… Continue reading [Fashion] The Emasculation Proclamation
I know, I know, I’ve been lax in writing stuff. In my defence this whole cosy-apocalypse pandemic has been, well, on, under, in and pressing down on my mind lately. Also I managed to sneak in not one but two flying visits to Boys Will Be Girls in the last three weeks, partly because I… Continue reading [Philosophy] Femininity 1, Masculinity 0…
“In tonight’s episode, Queenie manages to burn the bread and has to make some more for husband Lionel, all while bustling the chaotic children off to school, being an agony aunt for her permanently love-lorn sister Cherrie and planning Lionel’s secret birthday party. Only on NBC” Ahh, fantasy. The only place right now that doesn’t… Continue reading [Philosophy] Retro-Queenie; now in glorious Technicolor (C)
So, the lockdown was tough. Yeah, I know it could have been much, much worse, but it was very much mentally difficult for me for a number of reasons. And the reason that caused the most problems? I had way too much time to *think*. It sounds odd but my job has me, or rather… Continue reading [Frock Tales] ‘A Tale of Two Pretties’
So, rather than have a gush and write a long blog post on my long awaited return to the skirts of Sarah I thought I’d write a set of little frock tales and enthuse about each of the outfits in turn. Luckily I have a gorgeous one to start with that pretty much blew my… Continue reading [Frock Tales] Being Lucille Ball….
