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

Bisou Bisou colorblock dress

Hey!  Two days in a row I’m writing about something in my closet.  And this is one I think you’re going to fall for.

If you recall my Christmas post from a couple of days ago, I mentioned in passing that I treated myself to a new dress to add to my closet.  Well, this is that dress.  I went to the JCPenney location down the road from my apartment, browsed through the women’s section, and immediately fell in love with this dress.  It’s a Bisou Bisou creation, and though you can see it at JCP’s website at this link, I’ll talk it up a little more here.  I’ll start off with the fabric, which is polyester/spandex and feels so comfortable.  The body-contouring design and size (8) feels so truly flattering as well, not loose yet nowhere near tight or constricting.

But your mind probably isn’t so much on the size or fabric, now is it?  No, you’re more than likely drawn to two other things.  First is the contrast in color.  this black/white combination really stands out.  I was actually conflicted between getting this one or another in the same style and design that swapped out deep burgundy for white.  I wanted that one since I had seen a dress in worn by Allison Sweeney in a photo I spotted several years ago.  Allison’s dress had the same top-to-bottom vertical panel, but that panel had bright read leather instead of polyester.  The decision was made for me, however, when the JCP rack didn’t have black/burgundy in size 8.  So, black and white it was.  And to be honest, while black/burgundy was a nice combo, black/white really has a dramatic effect that can turn any head.

One other difference between Allison Sweeney’s dress and mine is that the front panel on Allison’s went mostly straight down with little or no curves.  The panel on this dress, however, has hourglass curves that create their own drama.  Dare I use the words “sex appeal”?  Okay, I just did, especially since the curves accentuate the chest and waist areas and even the knee area at the fringe.  And they don’t fail to draw attention to the face of the wearer.  And as you can see from these photos, I’m beaming.  Yeah, this is such a well-fit, truly flattering dress that it’s going to be in my wardrobe for a long, long time.

I hope you dig this dress as much as I do.  I love it so much that I took more than the photos you see here.  For more shots that are even more flattering, you can click on my Flickr feed here.  Thanks for reading. 🙂

(Oh, well, okay, one more photo.)

A part of the trans community ("cross-dresser" is the term that applies to me) who finds themselves much more expressive and somewhat more confident when presenting in a feminine persona. An admirer and supporter of those who are fashionable, fabulous, and friendly (LGBT or otherwise). Someone who tries to be witty and unique, but is not even remotely perverted or a pariah (I am a real human being, just like you). Using various writing styles on this blog to communicate thoughts and feelings concerning my life experiences, fashion sense, and the world at large (and maybe impressing my high school creative writing teacher who deservedly gave me middling grades).

  1. One of my favorite dresses from you! I’m not exaggerating when I say that you look really, really stunning in it. Perhaps it’s because I’m drawn to black-and-white clothing (also have a nice dress like that at home), but in any case, good choice! Wishing you a happy holidays.
