What is your escape plan
for this weekend?
Every since JCPenney has revamped their store I have to say that I just can’t stay away, but I’m even more excited now since the re-lauunch of Ambrielle. Ambrielle is a beautiful lingerie collection that offers a fit for every figure. Ambrielle is designed for the modern, sophisticated woman who wants comfortable, affordable intimates that fit your figure perfectly without sacrificing style or luxury. With technical attributes including back smoothing, seamless lines, full coverage and plunging necklines, the Ambrielle collection leaves every woman looking and feeling her best.
“I don’t know why you’re acting like this is a joke,” he said. “It’s obvious from those pictures you aren’t joking. I wanted to tell him what a relief it had been for me to stop trying so hard to be feminine….
He was a straight black man who played his first televised set in bikini bottoms and knee-high heeled boots, epic. He made me feel more comfortable with how I identify sexually simply by his display of freedom from and irreverence for obviously archaic ideas like gender conformity.
I discovered an incredible new line of jeans/leggings called Jag Jeans at The Fig Leaf. They are styled just like a pair of jeans but instead of that big button, zipper, loop combination that shows under every single top I wear; there is a smooth wide band. I nearly squealed with delight when I tried on these jeans!
"Her very public life after her 1952 transition and surgery was a model for other transsexuals for decades. She was a tireless lecturer on the subject of transsexuality, pleading for understanding from a public that all too often wanted to see transsexuals as freaks or perverts ... Ms Jorgensen's poise, charm, and wit won the hearts of millions." [Candice Brown Elliot, 1999]
How to wear a Pencil Skirt
A pencil skirt is a thin, leg hugging skirt, that often has a slit, or pleat to allow a better range of movement. Created in the 1950’s by Christian Dior, the goal was a feminine body-hugging design. The original design often made women move quite a bit when they would walk, so over the years the skirts evolved to include a slit up the back or side to give some ease of movement. The goal was to draw attention to the hips, rather than the waist. This makes it an ideal skirt for any body type.
The pencil skirt acquired its name because it was a slim, form-fitting cut, created specifically to draw attention to the femininity of the woman wearing it. When worn below the knee, even with a slit or pleat, it can be hard to walk in, as it will be much more constricting than most other styles of skirts, but this is what makes it so feminine as it forces women to make smaller steps.
It often takes some practice to wear a pencil skirt due to the tight nature that restricts movements. This can make it difficult for a woman to get in and out of a car with grace. One advantage is that during cold weather, it’s warmer, and the wind is not able to lift it up and flash potential bystanders. (Think Marilyn Monroe!)
When you choose to wear a pencil skirt, make sure you go longer than the fingertips/knees for a more formal setting. Shorter pencil skirts can be worn casually, or for dates. But traditionally the pencil skirt works in a business or formal setting because it covers all your parts while alluding to how feminine your figure is.
