Allison M.

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

About me

Allison M.Hello there, everyone, and thanks for checking me out!  My name is Allison, and I am a male-to-female crossdresser who lives in the wonderful city of Madison, Wisconsin (hence my WordPress URL).  I live my everyday life as a button-down man in his 40s who wears a dress shirt and tie.  But when I get the chance to dress up and become Allison, I’m 21 years old and holding.  My interest piques toward any item of feminine attire (skirts, dresses, wigs, etc.) that looks stylish, are affordable, and will fit on me.

Admittedly, I don’t get to dress up as Allison all the time, and when I do it’s within the privacy of home, which is definitely the most comfortable place to express and perfect my femininity.  Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ve never left the house en femme; I’ve been breaking out of my shell and venturing out as Allison the past couple of years, and it’s been an incredible feeling.

So, what’s the purpose of this blog, you may ask?  Well:

  • I want to share thoughts and experiences about being a crossdresser and how it has affected my attitudes and outlook on life.
  • I also want to share stories about my life in general.  If you’re expecting every single post to be about dressing up, I’m sorry to disappoint you; I’m so much more than a guy in a skirt.
  • I’m always challenging myself to be honest and adventurous in my writing, so every now and again you’ll find a bit of poetry created by yours truly.
  • I’m sort of an amateur fashionista (emphasis on “amateur”), meaning every now and again I’ll highlight and share any new fashionable discoveries (people, clothing, styles, trends, etc.).
  • I love to say good words about the open-minded people of the world, from fellow crossdresers to the LGBT community as a whole and anyone else open-minded and supportive of girls like me.  If you fall in any of those categories, know that I’ll have your back here.
  • And I’ve grown accustomed to life in Madison (where I’ve lived since 2002), so I’ll share thoughts on this wonderfully vibrant town and my experiences here.

I try to post at least one new blog entry per week, or at the very least whenever the inspiration to post comes up.  Feel free to read my past and current entries, and feel free as well to leave your kind comments.  If you’d like to see my various looks, they’re on my Flickr profile.  Feel free, too, to send me your compliments, advice, or even a simple “hello” (I’m a sucker for a kind word or two or several).  And if you see me leaving you a good word, consider it a well deserved compliment.  Thanks again for reading! 🙂

  9. Hello there!

    I just wanted to say that I’ve nominated you for a One Lovely Blog Award 🙂

    Don’t feel like you have to play along as I realise it can be a wee time consuming.

    Hope you are having a pleasant evening,

  10. Hello Allison, Lovely to come across your site. May I say I enjoyed your poem on the warming weather and a less welcome warmth of feeling around difference.
    But isn’t it reassuring when we run across someone who is just accepting and generous with us? And hopefully we can be a bit more accepting in general of difference having experienced some forms of transgenderism.
    Enjoy spring but give a thought as we in Australia slip into autumn / fall. Still, time for tight jeans, big coats and the like. Kind regards, Geraldine
