It was Halloween and to celebrate National Crossdresser’s Day I got dressed and headed out to do some shopping (or at least trying on) and then dinner with my friend Karla. I had always wanted to go out for dinner on Halloween. I repeatedly asked my wife over the years, and she always refused. So I stopped asking and made my own plans. She wasn’t extremely happy I was going out (and meeting a woman for dinner), but she didn’t stop me either.
I went in blend mode (what I refer to as casual), a top I had bought the previous week, my Spanx leggings, and my boots. I’ve gotten a few compliments on this combo. I prefer wearing dresses, but these type of outfits are easier to blend in when out and about.
I stopped at a local Goodwill and Designer Shoe Warehouse (nothing worth buying) before heading to the St. Louis Galleria. I went to the Nordstrom, tried on a few things, then put on my dress for dinner, a black velvet long sleeve dress. I went with Karla for leggings/pantyhose to wear with the dress, and we both liked some black hose with polka dots, so I took them back to the dressing room and tried them on.
I finished dressing and went to the changing room door to show Karla. While I was standing in the door another customer, a young GG who had been trying on clothes walked by and said “so cute”. Did I hear what I think I heard her say???
I thought that is what she said but I wasn’t sure, so I followed her out and asked her if that is what she said, and she said yes, and then I told her I really appreciated hearing that.
I changed back into blend mode and went to Sephora for a smoky eye treatment (I had seen an ad for it previously; they were doing eye treatments for Halloween). As always, getting made up is fun, and made my eyes look good. I then hit a couple more stores, tried on a few dresses at Macy’s, but nothing special.
I returned to Nordstrom to put the dress back on for dinner. I found the dress at a local thrift and was dying for a chance to wear it out. I had asked Karla out to dinner last week but she wasn’t up to it, but tonight she was. She thought I looked good and so did I. We had a nice dinner and conversation at Brio’s, and it was a bit nervy but fun to be eating out with someone in a glamorous dress.
So no candy but a real treat.
