A crossdresser's thoughts on life, fashion, fabulousness, and (oh yeah) dressing up

#TBT follow-up: Pointe foil tank dress and tree

1 Comment

Okay, this is going to be too easy of a #ThrowbackThursday follow-up.  Do you recall seeing that post from a couple of weeks ago that saw me sporting a beautiful ponte foil tank dress from American Apparel?  Well, I had a seasonally appropriate photo left over.

Silver tank dress w/ tree

Yep, that’s yours truly in that very same dress standing next to my Christmas tree.  As I’ve noted previously, I usually put up my tree on Thanksgiving weekend, not so much to get into the holiday spirit but more of a want to haul out the handmade ornaments my mom created years ago (I’m so proud of her craft work).

My dress isn’t the only new thing in this photo.  The tree is new as well.  My old tree was starting to fall apart, so I went out on Thanksgiving weekend and bought a new tree, one that’s a little taller and not as broad as the old one.  (Yes, it’s an artificial tree.  It’s true, I’m not the only thing that’s artificial in this photo.)

Aside from red and green, silver and gold is a usual go-to color combination for the holidays; in fact, silver and gold is the perfect glamor combination any time of the year.  While I didn’t have any gold here (though I did a year ago), I obviously had lots of silver with the dress.  And with that, I set up my camera, posed next to the tree, and voila!  Holiday glamour!  I only wish I hadn’t been alone this particular evening; this is a perfect look for a holiday to-do at home.

Whatever you’re doing this holiday season, and however you’re celebrating it, here’s hoping it’s a wonderful and safe season for you and yours.  Happy holidays! xoxo
