sisterhouse.net

You’d be surprised, or maybe not, of the answers I get for not liking fashion. “Oh! I’m just not into it” is more than common.

The Joy of Being Plus-Size
sisterhouse.net

Obviously I’m saying this tongue-in-cheek  as for most cross-dressers  trying to fit into womens’ clothing of any size can be a gargantuan task, but even more so if you are a size 14 or larger. Now you are into the plus sizes and it is even harder for us to find flattering clothes with our […]

The Timeless Trumpet Skirt
sisterhouse.net

I absolutely love wearing skirts…there’s such a touch of femininity about them.  There’s always plenty of room in my closet for more. One of the first skirts that my partner bought me was a black trumpet skirt that fell below the knee, but oh! did it twirl. It’s hard to put a finger on exactly […]

The Strapless Dress, Demon or Damon
sisterhouse.net

There’s nothing quite so sexy as a strapless dress; it promises so much, but there are risks.  This durable but fragile looking bit of femininity gives the impression that at any moment the garment will slip down or that, better yet, certain parts may slip out of place. If you’ve worn a strapless dress, you’ve […]

Looking Back at Fashion
sisterhouse.net

As I explore all facets of fashion, I enjoy looking back at bygone ages and what better way to do that then to visit a fashion museum and see their latest exhibits. That’s why I created a section in Sister House on Fashion Exhibits. I remember not too long ago while living in El Paso […]

Every Girl Needs Sunglasses, But Which One?
sisterhouse.net

If you live in the tropics, like me, then sunglasses are essential everyday wear. And of course, in the summer they are a given. But which ones are flattering to our faces. And more than that, those sunglasses can hide some of those unflattering masculine features so getting the right ones are important. I have […]

The Drag Explosion
sisterhouse.net

Reposted fron Helen Boyd’s EN GENDER With many recent exhibitions, screenings and publications, the queer community, particularly in New York, seems to be on an archival bent, mapping a genealogy of various aspects of LGBTQ history. Not only is queer culture experiencing archive fever, but the era of the 1980s and 1990s has been given […]

Showing Your Boobies After a Certain Age

Reprinted from Fashion After 50  with comment How low should we go after a certain age? Looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun. You can’t stare at it long; it’s too risky. You get a sense of it, then you look away. — Jerry Seinfeld I’m not sure my friend, Sabrina would agree […]

Tootsie Was Never a Comedy For Me
sisterhouse.net

Much to do is being made about the recent video by Dustin Hoffman talking about his comedy, Tootsie, some years ago. Tears came to his eyes when he reminisces over the interesting women he didn’t talk to because their beauty standards weren’t quite up to snuff. Well, this is certainly something that women know and […]

Welcome to My World of Fashion

And so it became the ultimate pleasure when I could now put on a dress and browse the boutiques until my heart’s content. Having a male figure presents some unusual challenges […]
