I've been going in public while dressed as a girl for 36yrs. I.ve worn mini-dresses and mini-skirts( that was awhile back).I still wear a mini-skirt on occasion. My favorite is blue-denim above the knee straight line skirts. Almost all color hose works well. I really like fishnets. Knee-high boots with a 4inch heel is what i generaly wear. In cold weather i wear skinny jeans with different kinds of boots.Warmer weather i wear spaghetti strap tops and shorts or skirts and flats or sandals. That being said my family and i go shopping to alot of places. I go yard saleing, flea-markets, resale-stores,department stores and grocery stores. I get out to pump gas ,i've done my banking buisness. We eat out acouple times aweek. The places i go to on a regular basis know i'm a guy. Strangers very seldom say anything if they realize i'm a guy. My daughter and son call me dad,thats who i am.(he's 26, she's17). I really never had problems (yet). My wife calls me by my real name or honey ,that one does get the stares. My real name can be used for boys or girls,did my mom know what i would grow up to be. Everyone that knows me know i dress. I am not trying to brag ,i just believe this is who we were ment to be. So why not enjoy life while we all can. Go out and have fun.
