The problem with online shopping is that there is sooooooo much to choose from, cause The World is at your feet. The upside is that many of the fun items are only available online and/or you can avoid travelling many many miles by bike, car, train, boat or plane, before you found the right shop for your fun shopping experience. Another upside of online shopping is that you can do your shopping in your nighty in a lazy chair and a glass of Continue reading →
On January 7th there was an event, as part of the series The Resolution Game at The Hoxton. There’s one game many of you play every year: where we tell ourselves we’re going to change all of our unhealthy habits, finally make that work-move we’ve been dreaming about and buy that bag we’ve been saving up for. One of your resolutions could be to get to know every nook and cranny of Amsterdam and what better way to do that, than Continue reading →
I hear you think this look is so not me. I know this is only the second look with pants since I’ve started this blog almost four years ago and it has been a while since I’ve posted that look (October 25th, 2013: Spotting Wildlife) but I guess this look is also so me: it’s different, edgy, playful and with high heels!

In the middle of the preparation of my Happy-Merry_Christmas_post I caught up in the preparation of Christmas itself. So in this post you will find still a bit of the Christmas spirit.
In my last post I mentioned that I’m taking baby steps to reach my goal to create more and more awareness to the subject of cross-dressing. The ultimate goal would be at least the respect and acceptance of guys/men like me, who like to dress up as girls/women for fun, because it’s a necessity or both.
In the week before Christmas, I’ve made bigger steps (in high heels of course!). I have two jobs. And at both parties I went for the first time as Francesca.
At one job we had a drink with snacks and music. There were only a few co workers who knew about my alter ego and now approximately a hundred people were gathered to raise a glass to celebrate the successes of last year and to bless the successes to come next year. Here I went in a new, what I would call a, office-chic dress. This dress will be up on my blog later this year. I think I managed to go low profile. At least I stayed in the background because I didn’t know what to expect how they would react. A few co workers came up to me to compliment me on my appearance. That felt great and comforting! It made me more convinced to go as Francesca to the big office party two days later at my other job. Continue reading →
My mom knows for almost two decades about my clothing fetish, almost as long as my girlfriend. My girlfriend didn’t, and still doesn’t, want to know when I order something from the women’s department,, so I used her address for years. Every time she received a package for me, we opened it. Most of the times she liked the items I ordered in. She often says to me: ‘Íf this makes you happy, you have my blessing to pursue it, but I rather see you in men’s clothes. So most of the occasions I visit her, I go as my regular me and sometimes I go as Francesca. The last time I visited her as Francesca was not so long ago. On that day we went shopping Continue reading →
So you know: all of the items aren’t available anymore, because it is all older or old stuff. I found the jacket last year in the lovely second hand store Kat & Co, in a city near Amsterdam (Haarlem). Usually I don’t buy my stuff in a second hand store. I am more a giver haha. Mainly because I like new and fresh things and they only have one size of each item. But this jacket was placed on a doll in the store window and I couldn’t resist to go in and check the size of it. As you can see it fits perfectly!
The string bodysuit, the bra and tights I found in my fav Wolford shop, also in Haarlem (last year). The skirt is about 15 years old and is from Corel Amsterdam. And the shoes are from L.K. Bennett (about 6 years ago). Still one of my fav pair of booties! Continue reading →
Don’t you sometimes see something really beautiful and you desperately want to have it, but price wise it’s way out of your league? That happened to me two years ago when I saw these statement earrings. For the preparation of this post, I visited the site of degrisogono.com again and found out they are probably one of their signature earrings. Today they come in two types. The ones in pink gold 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 →
Like I mentioned in my last post, I don’t have ma1ny dreams (left). My number two dream is:
visit New York Fashion Week. With a former female classmate from elementary school I had a plan to go last year. But somehow we lost touch and I went this summer to Fashion Week in Amsterdam instead haha.
How was this year so far for you? Oh wait! It’s almost gone!
For me it was quite a year, with ups and downs.
A major up was my blooming cooperation with House of Byfield (HOB), especially with the founder and head designer Carmichael Byfield. It looks like the cooperation could be growing into a full blossom next year. Another up was that I still had enough inspiration to quite some posts on my blog. It makes me feel alive to work on these posts, especially to put the looks together, to model for the camera and to pick out the most striking poses. Also the awesome comments once a post is posted (still not so much on my blog, but on Lookbook.nu I have 439 fans right now) keeping me going. I have several looks to work on for next year, so stay tuned! Continue reading →
