I took what I learned in DC and tried to duplicate some of it. Duplicating all of it would be impossible for many reasons. I did some things different with my makeup and was pleased with my presentation on this day, September 9, 2021.
So let’s first talk outfit. I stalked this skirt until it finally came to me at a buck. The blouse another bargain. 1 + 1 = fabulous! While walking down the street (in an admittedly diverse neighborhood), when you get two compliments from passers-by, you know you did well. I went orange with the earrings (drawing numerous compliments) and my lipstick and thought I did myself proud. I particularly loved the white pumps. No detail overlooked and that attention to detail is noticed.
The day started with the first shift at The Cleveland Museum of Art information desk. I was paired up with a wonderful lady I have worked with in the past and we talked and talked and…. I feel myself not only looking more like a woman, but definitely acting more like one. This isn’t like flipping a light switch, it’s a process. It isn’t something you do, it’s something you become. I particularly had fun with a bus load of Wisconsinites on a tour to New York, stopping in what I consider a much better city to spend the day while on the way.
After my shift, I hit my favorite clothing exchange and basically swapped a few of the dresses you have recently seen for a darling peplum top, a stellar skirt and a cute Old Navy dress that immediately screamed denim jacket to me!! Next stop, Goodwill for a cobalt blue Nicole Miller cocktail dress with the original tags on it (over $100) for $4.
I moved on for a Happy Hour Cosmopolitan and then picked up my race pack for a half marathon I’ll be running the following Sunday. It always pleases me to pick up race packs while dressed and no one looks at me cross-eyed. And when I do this, I give my actual name and they can obviously see that I am register to run as an aged male.
Last stop, ULTA. I love that place!! I picked up a few new items for things I learned on my recent makeovers, which were game changers for me. A lovely SA helped me and I simply enjoyed the ultimate feminine experience.
This never, ever gets old. It just brings a new level of joy each and every time. Be you!
