New Year's Panties!
hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I noticed during the
holidays that things were so busy that I rarely had time to really think
about being a girl, but I was able to sneak away for a few hours after
New Years, and so I decided to visit one of my favorite destinations,
the local Fred Meyer department store.
Two years ago I was able to shop at this store just before Christmas,
and I ended up buying myself two pairs of high waist panties from Vanity
Fair...a pair in white with a touch of pretty lace and a pair in pink.
The pictures that I posted as part of
memorable outing were some of my most well
received ever, and I believe on that occasion that I was the most
passable that I have ever been (and that's saying quite a bit). So
tonight I hoped to relive just a bit of that holiday magic and head to
the department store to shop for more panties en femme in order to ring
in the New Year on a perfect note.
for my outfit, one thing that I have been doing regularly when I've had
time to dress in my bedroom is put together outfits using a cropped
sweater as the outer layer. I have two such cropped sweaters that I
purchased at different times from Old Navy, and one is a demure heather
gray color while the other is a much brighter coral color. I've been
experimenting with these cropped sweaters over summer tops like
camisoles and sleeveless blouses in order to create new looks that I can
actually wear in the winter time as well. As I was experimenting with
this and that in front of my full-length mirror, I decided to try a
cropped sweater over a darling white sleeveless dress that I purchased
at Kohl's last summer.
At the time, I actually documented quite heavily my search for a white
summer dress, and I ended up trying on three different dresses from the
Kohl's Junior's section. The dresses were all super cute, and I ended up
purchasing one of them, but I just didn't feel comfortable wearing it
out in public as is. Let's face it, the dress was designed for a
teenager, and I am a woman in my mid-forties, and while some genetic
girls my age could pull off the look, I wasn't confident in my ability
to do so.
As it turns out, I decided to give that summer dress another try, only
this time I would coordinate it with a colder weather sweater, and I
really liked the result...so much so that I decided to wear it out
tonight to shop for panties. I tried both the gray sweater and the coral
sweater and then determined in the end that the coral just worked
better. Perhaps it was
to the "younger" look created by the dress and the pretty color of my
sweater, but I thought my hair would look better tonight pulled back
tightly into a pony tail. The more I posed in front of my mirror from
different angles, the more this outfit grew on me, and so I completed it
with a pair of nude pantyhose to keep my legs warm and simple brown
flats. As for accessories, I popped in my large hoop earrings, and then
I even toyed with the idea of wearing eyeglasses, but I ultimately
decided against the eyeglasses although I'll post a slightly blurry pic
of me with the glasses at the end of this entry (I didn't get a pic that
turned out clear, darn it).
The drive to this particular Fred Meyer is about 10 minutes away, and I
was thankful for a mild winter night in order to spend a few minutes as
a girl. The hustle and bustle of the holidays was over, and the parking
lot was maybe a third full when I pulled in. As is the case with this
department store, the lingerie section is off in one of the corners, and
in order to get there, I have to pass through the Junior's section, the
Women's section, and even the Shoe section. I took mental notes as I
walked through these departments on my way to lingerie, and I would
surely stop at all the departments after I found some panties.
