    I’m buying everything I ever really wanted! You know…the things you can’t wear until you’re ‘out’? Jewellery, watches, clothes, shoes, makeup…my bank balance is emptying so fast…and I don’t care!
    Is this hormones or liberation? Every fb advert…I’m clicking it. This is sooo much fun girls.

      However, I do understand the temptation. Sometimes I go for a few months and then I just need to shop for something. I guess it falls under the heading of impulse control. Sometimes I have it and sometimes I don’t. While I have shopped in department and discount stores, probably 80% to 90% of my wardrobe comes from thrift stores (online and in person). There seems to be much more of the Thrill Of The Hunt feeling. But, the positive thing about that is that the odds are lower of finding something that I like and that fits. Therefore it decreases to probability of buying something…

        I was advised by other trans girls to use Thrift stores (we call them Charity Shops and that one has been the bane my life haha) In early transition you have to ‘find’ your style and look, and also a changing body shape. Thrift stores are perfect and cheap…yes I do use them too! I experiment and mix and match…and my ‘look’ is starting to form. So I just buy anything that I like…some things work some things don’t.

          There’s another advantage regarding thrift shops, from my perspective anyway. Being In Style has never been an interest of mine. My target has always been Being Stylish. I have items from the 60’s through the 90’s and I have no problem mixing eras. That’s fun to me. Unfortunately I don’t get to wear the items from the 60’s as they are winter wear. Sadly that doesn’t work very well here in the desert.

          Anyway, the issue is that you won’t find that sort of range in department stores. Anything close would fall into the retro category, but why do a sad imitation when you can find the real thing? Also, in many cases, the quality and materials are better with the originals…

      My 1st year of transition, I was cautious about spending.It has now been 1and a half years and now I buy everything  I desire.I can’t  remember the last male thing I’ve bought.With winter here , it’s been cardigans, hoodies, makeup, makeup , makeup!! I love it and now boots are on my radar. I never enjoyed shopping so much .So, yes, it’s spend , spend , spend!!

        As a guy I used to hate clothes and shoe shopping. The only clothes I wanted to shop for were graphic tees. Now I love it. Love it, love it, love it. Don’t understand it but I do. I’ve had to slow down. Spending too much money. Def need to do the thrift stores! ❤️🙆‍♀️

        Boots are definitely a staple in the fall and winter.  A nice pair of black riding boots and a pair of high heel dressy boots are so versatile

      Take a deep breathe and slow your roll. When you do get to the point where you are out, you don’t want to find yourself in a bad place…
