(Open toe sling backs with a wood heel and sole by Dereon )
I have had several requests for different things. I suppose
they are better referred to as suggestions for posts. One of these wonderful
ideas was to show some outfits I wear with my heels. A little information at
this point, I like several styles of cloths. As I do not like to refer to them as
men’s and women’s cloths, I do not have another way to describe them. I
feel the cloths I wear are my cloths not women’s cloths and men’s cloths. I
define the women’s cloths as cloths styled for females OR purchased from the
women’s department. I know; this seems silly. I must further explain I do not
consider myself to be a cross dresser or transvestite. This is because I do not try to
look like a woman I just happen to like clothing that is designed for women. I feel
it only gives me a softer look & I must say it is not easy to accomplish. With that
bit of confusion being said, let us get to the outfit I currently am posting.
On this evening we went to dinner. A place I have not worn
heels to before. We have been there a couple times however. It is a Japanese
steak house, hibachi style.
The Mrs. likes me to wear things a little more discreet. She
has no issues with my preferred style of dress; she is more concerned with the
reaction of others to my appearance. She gets nervous just as I do. I know
getting over that is about gaining confidence. So needless to say, I do not
venture out in skirts yet. 😉
When we entered, as usual not many people notice anything
unusual. When we start walking, the sounds of heels on a hard floor are a little
odd when two people are wearing them and your eyes tell you the sound is not
from one pair of heels & the eyes do not see two females. This is when the
curiosity takes over and people look to see what is different. As we walk past
others already sitting, people look at the Mrs. outfit, which was stunning, and see her
blue hair and her matching blue open toe booties with a zipper detail. Than
they see my shoes and realize the person walking behind her was a guy, so they
look back up, verify this to be correct and than respond in the following ways.
Face forward in shock and process what they just saw, turn to the person they
are with and comment on what they witnessed, stair me down on way to my
seat as though they are attempting to understand the conflict in their mind.
And sometimes it is a combination of these.
Often the server is intrigued to the point to want to engage
me often to determine what the deal is. I can say to this day, no one has ever
said a thing about my heels or attire. Someday I hope for that to change &
of course with a positive comment. 😉
I wore a basic black button up, long sleeve shirt un-tucked,
low-rise boot cut tall jeans and my wood, patent black, open toe sling back
heels with gold chains on the vamp. For the picture and the ride home, I rolled
up my pant legs. I did not wear them in this manner to dinner.
The shirt was a thrift store item last year; the jeans are a
thrift store item from this spring and the shoes were obtained this summer. (On
a prior post)
I will confess I
often rely on the Mrs. for input on my appearance. She is very good about that.
I like to be bold but again, the confidence is not there yet. I would have no
issues with wearing all black and bright red heels. I think it would look cool.
I would also have no issues wearing one of my jean skirts with leggings but
the confidence to do that in public is just not there yet.
A quick note on my nails; we go every two weeks to a nail
shop. I usually get a French tip on my hands and feet in the summer and will go
to color on my feet in the winter. We have been doing this ritual for over a
year now and we are loving it!
If there are any thoughts of how I might be able to put
things together for an outing, I will welcome the feedback. I am planning my
next one to be to the movies. Not sure when the time will come for that, but it
is in the hopper. 😉 I am sure I will wear jeans again and I have the shoes I
want to wear next. Not sure about the shirt yet but I have tons of new ones I have
Thank you again for your support and I appreciate all
