    Does anyone go out Semi-Femme?

    Today I went shopping but I was only partially dressed. I wore lip gloss, oversize sunglasses, a gold bangle, fem jeans and my black canvas shoes with a one inch heel. But I also wore a bra and my forms under a black t shirt. I got a few strange looks but other wise I didn't have any problems. It felt really good to dress some where in between. I wonder, has anyone else done this, and do you prefer it to being fully dressed.

    I often go out, say 50/50. Today I did have nail polish on, but I think that the people I normally deal with are used to my way of dress. It has gotten to the point where I am included in the small talk on the bus (commuter bus with mostly single older women). Today the grocery clerk mentioned the color of my nails saying it matched my ear rings.

    Semi-fem for me.

    Although I have gone out totally enfemme, I find that I am less comfortable than when I dress in feminine clothing but without a wig and concealing make up. I am so uncomfortable when I have to respond and talk to others as a women that I just drop the masquerade and dress trying to fool no one.

    My prefer the casual look; sandals with capris or shorts, a soft colorful top that is an oversized t-shirt with a female collar and sleeves or a babydoll type top. My accessories include a necklace, hoop or drop earings and a pale lip gloss. In place of the wig, I wear a scarf or short brimmmed cap or hat.
    I must include that I never go out in this mode without a closely shaved face and perhaps light powder or base.

    Yep, most always. Nice blouse, jeans, nails long and polished, fancy earrings, moman's watch, 4 rings, bracelet, mascara and eye shadow is how I went food shopping today.

    Quite often

    Usually, my sneakers are womens styles, I usually wear spandex leggings with a feminine t-shirt with cap sleeves and either deep v-neck or scoop neckline. I also like short low rise Nike athletic shorts which I wear almost thru the summer, they make my legs feel sexy. I get some stares but I am so use to these styles that it doesn't bother me at all.

    I am trying to wear skirts publicly but have not gotten the nerve to go out in busy public places yet, but I do walk in the park in the early morning. Usually all the above is without Wig and makeup. Loving it.

    I like to go out with my fem low rise jeans, my small forms and bra and a baggy fem shirt to cover them. Quite often I will paint my nails a light pink and have a natural colored lipstick on. The only time that I have had any comments was when I had on bright red nail polish and that was from a store clerk who just asked Why? I told him that it was not a good idea to pass out at parties.

    I underdress almost every day, and occasionally I go out "semi-femme." I enjoy the latter very much partly because it is so easy to do. However, my favorite way to go is all-out en femme.

    At 47 years, I choose to dress age appropriate and find semi en femme counter productive...
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

    Dress well and dress often!

    I do the same thing quite often. I like to wear womens jeans and shorts as well as feminine looking tops. I also wear a bra but do not use breast forms. I like to keep my chest fat so it is not real obvious that I am wearing a bra. My nails are always long with clear polish on them. I find it enjoyable when people give me looks that shows me they are wondering WTF. No one has ever said anything to me about dressing this way.

    Since all I own is women's clothes, the answer is yes I do go out semi-fem. In fact it's about 90/10 for me.

    Absolutely I do! I like wearing women's clothes, and for me, I don't think it should be "all or nothing" if I don't want it to be. After all, it's all about gender expression and if I feel that my gender is somewhere in the middle why not dress like it too? I'm only showing on the outside what I feel I am on the inside.

    Now obviously, one has to be a little bit careful on what you are wearing depending on where you are going and what you are doing, (I personally don't choose to wear skirts in boy mode) but my "girly boy mode" is a girly guy in fairly obvious women's clothes. The kind of thing I wear is women's pink and white tennis shoes, fitted femme jeans, women's slightly scooped necked plain colored t-shirts, and if it's cold enough a women's plain colored cardigan on top. I always wear a bra and panties underneath plus I wear earrings, a baseball cap, and usually (but not always) eyeliner as well.

    I've been out lotsa times but it was in kind of a semi en fem mode. this was back in the seventies right after I finished high school. I had a few tops and some make-up odds and ends. My hair was long and half way down my back. I had a blow dryer,a bunch of bobby pins and brushes and combs and a whole mess of dippity do and aqua net hair spray. Through sheer brainstorming and calculation I figured out how to give myself updos,Peg Bundy Top Knots,Beehives and all sorts of big hair inventions. One day I was Marlo Thomas the next day I was Joan Collins.

    I also stuck so much frost and tip dye on my hair that it started to turn green in some places. So I had to stop dying it. All this was in Southern Illinois that I'm talking about and I stopped going out like that after 3 or 4 years because I came very close to getting my ass kicked by drunks and redneck hoods lots of times.

    I've moved several times since then and I got a shag haircut in 1978 or 1979 and as much as my budget will allow I like wigs. There is a kind of partially disatisfied feeling in going out only partway enfem. Currently I live in Wisconsin about a half hour drive from the Twin Cities of St.Paul/Minneapolis in Minnesota. I've made some CD freinds in the area where I live and I'm hoping that the opportunity will come up eventually to go out completely enfem.

    I seem to find it easiest to go out semi-femme, which I think of as unisex. Often i will wear women's pants, T-shirt top, (which may be either men's or women's), generally men's shoes, or women's that look like men's, clear nail polish, a little make-up to conceal any 5 o'clock shadow under the nose, a watch which is a just large enough women's watch to pass, plain ring or two rings, underwear optional as to gender, while a fairly plain baseball cap seems unisex enough too.
    This suits me in many ways, including the practical one that I have these days more women's clothes than men's, so women's clothes are usually conveniently at hand.

    Going out partially femme is the way I feel the most comfortable. I've never gone out fully dressed trying to pass and I really don't have the desire to. I wear girls jeans and shorts, girls sweaters and T shirts, jewelry, lip gloss and perfume. I'm also smooth shaven and have long fingernails. I get a few stares but also a lot of compliments from women.

    YUP. As I've said in many other posts, I'm skirted most of the time. Purse on the shoulder and I'm ready to go shopping.

    I tried it once, but...

    Since I was only wearing a nice frilly blouse, the policeman sent me home and told me I needed to wear something below the waist.

    I use a uniform for my business and I've discovered that it is like a stove in that you can heat it up or cool it down easily and quickly.

    When I first started to go out in public, I played it down a bit. Wearing short-shorts & simple tee's. But once I told everyone what I was doing, out came the skirts and dresses. Of course my nails were always done a light shade of pink. I favor L'Oreal #250 "Shopping Spree". A nice pink with a bit of sparkle.

    Now I wear skirts & tops most of the time. Sort of a casual look, nothing fancy. But if there is a call for it, I'll dress to the nines. For a party or going to a club it all depends on the atmosphere that I expect there as to how 'dressy' I'll get.
    All in all, I just dress how I feel each day. So, skirts & tops are the usual for me.

    So I say... Dress the way you feel, every day.
    And do yourself a favor when you shop... Read the labels on your clothes. Almost everything I have now is machine washable, or at least hand washable.
    Oh sure I have some that are 'Dry Clean Only', but I don't wear them that often. It's got be a pretty big event for me to wear one of those dresses.

    Semi-fem to me means to go out looking like a guy in a skirt, which I've done.

    Makeup and forms, sans wig, looks more like a woman with a short haircut.

    When in my daily male mode, I always wear women's clothing of the type that is toned down. That includes necklaces, bracelets and some light makeup as well.
    Summer has me wearing nice shorts and even some pink tee shirts.
    For the most part, no one cares to comment. Recently, I've gotten some snickers from some punk slacker kids...it's always the fat girls who have tatoos on their legs.
    I guess they're jealous of my nice legs.

    I quite often go out semi-dressed. I wear female jeans and sweaters, I often wear silky camis under knit shirts and lately I've been wearing womens slacks. No one seems to notice or I don't notice them noticing me LOL.

    I also get pedicures and when I leave the nail salon I am wearing open toed sandles .. the female customers don't mind and I've actually been encouraged by their responses.

    I'm a full time woman these days, but during my first year learning curve I went out with all sorts of mixed presentations. I had that gender euphoria so badly that my male presentation immediately immediately included women's jeans, jewelry, fingernail polish, and feminine walk and mannerisms.

    Somehow looking like an effeminate guy didn't bother me, but there was always a strong line, I felt, between that and attempting to present as female.

    The line for me is basically wig and breast forms. I know it doesn't work like that for everybody, but me, my age, my male pattern baldness, those are the two aids I need to feel secure that I am presenting as female.
