CONVERSE X PATBO CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR HIGH TOP
I will freely admit, I do not have official permission to use this image! I know, right! Image thief! Well does it help that I am advertising the Converse brand? Probably not. I am totally in love with this shoe though. I have taken to recently wearing Converse shoes to work almost everyday. None of them are quite this feminine though. Well maybe a couple of them, but not quite this pretty! I really like that they have actual embroidery on them. Often with Converse they will have painted on images that resemble embroidery, but they don't have actual embroidery on them. This pair though, has really embroidery done on them. So why am I SO bummed? Well they no longer have them in my size!!
Boo-Hoo for me!! Um.... I am majorly bumming! So, if anyone knows where to buy these in a ladies size 10, then let me know! I will be eternally grateful!
Speaking of Boo-Hoo, reader Clare wrote in and asked:
Off topic...thoughts on dressing en femme (to work) on Halloween?
To which I will say that I have never done that. I have considered it, but I yet to actually do it. And I am kind of mixed on my thoughts on doing it ever. On the one hand, I am interested in going to work fully dressed as a woman, but at the same time, I am kind of not interested in that. As well, I don't really like the idea of dressing as a woman for Halloween. Halloween for me is a time to dress specifically in a costume. Thus if I were to dress as a woman for Halloween, does that mean that I am presenting myself dressed as a woman, as a costume? I kind of don't like that idea. I don't like the idea of me dressed a woman being a costume.
I totally get though why so many other MtF transgender people do dress as a woman though on Halloween. They see it as the one time of the year when they can get out dressed as they please, and no one is going to think they are a freak. I totally get that there is some sort of assumed safety of dressing however on Halloween.
But it is not for me. Well, I could see dressing as a woman, but then being in an actual costume. Like I did for this photo:
Other than that though..... I don't think I will ever just dress as a woman, and then go to work for Halloween. Now just dressing as a woman and going to work on any random day.... hmm..... possibly!
Love Cute Converse with Embroidery!!
