Showing off cool new purchases
« on: July 19, 2019, 03:50:56 pm »
Sorry if a thread for this already exists ...

Who can resist showing off their shiny new femme wear, whether some new cute jewellery or some amazing thrift bargain or some new make-up or whatever.

Show me your latest awesome gear ladies - inspire me! :)

Funny you should ask; I just had a big "girls day out" for my birthday yesterday! Here's my haul:



1. Some great thigh highs and knee socks from Sock Dreams, plus some lovely lilac tights! And Wonder Woman socks! The staff were so very friendly, too. A true Portland gem of a store!

2. A beautiful hardbound book of three plays by Euripides from Another Read Through, a cool bookstore in the same block.

3. Some personal care items from She Bop, a fabulous adult boutique just a couple blocks further.

4. Three warm cardigans and a pair of capris from the Goodwill, on our way to the nearby mall.

5. Fake pearls and some cute earrings from Claire’s, where I got my ears pierced! Until yesterday I only had the 4-gauge piercing in my left ear, but I wanted to wear regular earrings too. I normally would prefer to support a local piercing shop, as I did with my gauge, but going to Claire’s to get your ears pierced at the mall just felt like a girlhood ritual I wanted to indulge in - plus, cheap jewelry!

6. Some lovely presents from a couple of my BFFs who were part of the girl-gang for the day - earrings, pins, a bracelet and a loooong necklace!

^^^ Nice jewelry selection! Only have both ears pierced once and that's enough for me.  I just snag cheap costume jewelry whenever unique items show up on the net.  Also I know a lovely local retired lady that sells a lot of vintage items online (for a fair price) that I just adore.  Purchased a fair amount of earrings and necklaces from her over the years, I think she knows I'm trans by now ::)

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Kohls had Levis at 70% off!  I bought a size 4 high rise shorts (no stretch) and a size 0 stretchy jeans that both fit great!
If you read the fine print they don't give extra discounts on Levis and other premium brands; I cleverly bought the jeans just before their big January sale that is still going on now!

Saving money is nice to be able to do for purchases.

Nice!  I just opened a box of See's truffles today!  I spent so much at VS that they sent me a $50 bonus award!
Which means I'll be visiting the mall to spend it.

Julielynn, I had a thing for handbags but unfortunately a few nice ones went out with a purge a few years back, including some lovely prints and a gorgeous pink with a giant bow.  Of course I could never find it again.  I have a couple of nice handbags now (one that surprisingly matches my floral boots exactly!) but I always miss that pinkie the most :(

I noticed, I did look it up.   Kinda wanted one too.  ;)   Cheap is always nice for good looking stuff.

I have a bunch of bridal hairpins which I am going to wear with the wedding dress in the upcoming spring. I show another hairpin delivered recently.

That's my fav.  It's Kate Spade, not super posh, but still well made stuff.
