D.C. Photoshoot – 9/3/21 Red

A three part look back.

Let’s lighten things up a bit and revel in our femininity!

We continue tearing down some of the dated photoshoots.

I did a big shoot in Washington D.C. back in 2021. Read about it here.

I wore a black skirt and a white blouse and switched between a few blazers.

Here is the first blazer.

Okay, let me tell you, now ten years in, the things that I still notice. The things that still make me happy. A dangling necklace, about 18″ long (so it hangs just above the cleavage, although necklaces in the cleavage are also a treat). Got me there, cleavage itself is a treat!

Long earrings, again dangling. Holding my legs together in photos (which I now do instinctively, even in male mode unfortunately). Walking like a lady, in a dress, with no thought about how I am doing so. All the accessories, a bracelet, bra, nails, ring. Skirts, flowing dresses. Knowing you look great. Knowing you are noticed, positively. Makeup done well.

If you told me before all of this I would thrill to wear things that are binding (use your imagination, but it also includes shapewear, a bra, heels, tight fitting but complimentary clothing), I would have thought you nuts. But for me, it is me. It is what I need to do to look like someone people actually are drawn to. Yeah, some of that is a personality buried deep for decades, but much of it is presentation. Cliche: you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. My first impression is usually pretty damn good. Not God-given, an acquired skill.

Have a great weekend girls (and I thrill in that word too)!

  2. Kandi,
    Sometimes we need to look back to see how far we have come , the last six years for me have flown by , before that I would laughed if someone had predicted me living as a woman . I guess I must be doing something right .

    The first time I saw that jacket I loved it and who could resist a crisp white cotton blouse and a neat black skirt , you wear them well .

  3. Kandi,
    I understand the feelings. And I too now stand holding my legs together or crossed.
    Walking in heels ‘with no thought about how I am doing so’, but having to be aware of your footing and having exquiste nails 365 days a year are a few of the things that feed my inner girl.
    Have a nice weekend, too.

  4. Great photos, I remember them and how great you looked
    Yes I to enjoy all the things that go with looking a cute and pretty that I can be.
    Ok maybe not pretty but yes feeling my bra or forms and all that go with it is something only girls like us can describe

  5. It is always so wonderful to look and feel pretty. You look gorgeous in all your pictures.
