So much has happens in my life since April concerning my cross-dressing way of life, that I’m completely backed up. So in random order I’ll post what has happened …

This post is about my super awesome trip to Milano in July.
How do I do that: walking in high heels that well?

People still ask me how I can walk in heels that well. For me is that kind of awkward Continue reading

Unbelievable it’s been already three years on the blog, and still counting!
The average number of posts has dropped from once a week to once a month though. That doesn’t mean my inspiration has dropped too. On the contrary! It means I have more Continue reading

Always fun to shop at Karen Millen

Gallery

This gallery contains 6 photos.

Judging by the title you would expect I have some kind of collaboration with her …. I wish!

In this post I’ll show you my latest purchase from the Karen Millen collection. I’ve bought it on November 15th of this year in the shop at the P.C. Hooftstraat in Amsterdam. In the Karen Millen shops are always friendly people who want to help you in any way they can.

When I prepared this post it suddenly hit me: over a period of four years, I’ve collected already twelve dresses (on a total of about 60 dresses) from this label. Not to brag about it or anything, but just for understanding how fun the dresses from Karen Millen are, not only to look at, but also to wear.

You have to understand that Karen Millen is a one-stop-shop. It has all sorts of clothing in Continue reading

Last year I was all fashionable in a leopard print dress and heels for the LB NYFW contest 2013.. Two of the contestants were sending off to NY to actually see the fashion show for themselves. Well my look(s ^_^) didn’t help me to get on board, so that year I missed the boat. Continue reading

Red Carpet

Gallery

In my post Pregnant? I had a red carpet in the background. And it was so obvious, that I couldn’t see it. After the comment on my post on Lookbook.nu of my fellow lookbooker Iza Bella (I love her sense of humor!) it hit me. I could use it of one of my next posts. You have to know I use this location quite often to change clothes before I go shopping in women’s clothes, and this was the first time I used it as a photoshoot location. Continue reading

Mellow Yellow

dear readers,

In Europe we have every year the European Song Contest. This year won a ‘woman with a beard’, Conchita Wurst from Austria. He has got almost double the points of the number two. His appearance as a woman was/is a statement for tolerance and acceptance for all the people who are ‘different’. So the first time I went shopping after this event, on May 6th, people in the street were calling me Conchita. What’s in a name! Continue reading

One Year in the fashion jungle!

Gallery

And I survived!

Dear readers,

to be honest it’s a few weeks longer than that. To my defence not to report it on the day itself is because I didn’t have the right dress to mark this moment and express the joy I feel. Because this was the year of personal growth! I’ve come a long way. From a shy little kid who hardly ever spoken to people and living in his own world, to the person I am now. I don’t know who that person is though, because I’m still growing and developing myself. Continue reading

S/S 2014 Green leather biker jacket

Gallery

Dear readers,

I’m fortunate to live nearby a wonderful shopping street in Haarlem. I mentioned this in earlier posts. And one of my fav shops is ‘A Guy Named Sue’. For example the blazer in my post Brown and Blue I’ve bought here. I’ve had over 850 views on Lookbook.nu on this look. They have now their new collection in. So Friday two weeks ago I went there to have a look in their ‘candystore’. Continue reading

Are these booties not for walking!?

Dear readers,

This story is about the pair of cut-out black suede ankle boots (with cone heel and gold detailing) from Zanotti I bought recently.

The moment I received the shoes from the delivery man I had the unstoppable urge to go shopping in them. I hear you think: shouldn’t you first let your feet quietly adjust to these shoes. And I thought about that for a short moment, because I know by experience I could end up with quite painful feet, before I finished shopping! But I wasn’t amenable to reason, so off I went.

First I did a photo shoot for my post ‘Zanotti shoes on sale 2’. After that I drove to the parking garage at Museumplein in Amsterdam. There are three important musea at this plein (=square): Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk and Van Gogh. But my goal was the P.C. Hooftstraat. This street is famous of the luxurious shops like Louis Vuitton and Hermes, but there are also more affordable shops like Guess by Marciano and Supertrash (the Players shop is out of business)..

I didn’t had much time for shopping, so I just went to my most fav shops: Wolford (of course) and Karen Millen. It turned out it was a fun shopping expedition: this time nothing could inspire me to spend my money on. Both my wallet and my wardrobe were happy: since the beginning of December I’ve spend about 3500,- euro on clothing, shoes and jewelry (not only for myself) and my attic is getting very cramped.

By the time I was halfway back to the parking garage I noticed that one of the heel soles was completely wear down already. On the positive side: this time no sore feet!

Over the years I have quit a mileage on heels 9 cm and up) behind me and I have more then 30 pairs. I have a couple of my fav pairs that needed sole replacement several times, but that’s because I wear them a lot.

So I asked  customer service of Zanotti, if this was considered normal wear. They felt sorry for me and offered me to reimburse a sole replacement. Later on a woman friend of mine told me that women (she doesn’t know men, besides me, whom wearing heels) sometimes buy high heels just to look pretty in.

I’m asking you: is it true that you sometimes buy shoes just to look pretty in?

 Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti (F/W 2013)
