    Office Girls

    I used to work in an office in the1980s were there were 23 girls and only 3 boys . The girls I worked with then were some of the biggest influences on my dressing. Formal office attire and evening wear on nights out were great. Many purchases of dresses, skirts,tops , nylons and shoes were inspired by these ladies at the time. Has anybody else been influenced by their co workers/ colleagues? These days the office wear has become more casual for both sexes and just not the same as it used to be.

    Yeah, those were the days. i used to love the 80's office looks. Especially pencil skirts and big hair. But now they are as out of date as me.
    I am a vessel of the goddess. Let me express my calling to a feminine life through nurturing love and relatedness.

    The 80s did not do anything for me! I worked at a coal mine in WV and all the women dressed like men. Except the one secretary who did wear a dress. But she was an old spinster and super religious. We all swore she belonged to the snake handler church over in the next hollow and had snakes in her purse! Scary. Not something that I would want to remember let alone emulate! Lol.

    To me, women's business suits with skirts have always been the sexiest outfits I have ever seen, especially the pencil skirt! So professional looking!

    I am very much in agreement about the allure of women's office attire. Pencil skirts and dresses, peplum dresses and of course the heels and shoes I find very sexy without being overt. Quite influential on my own dressing choices as well. With all the controversy about setting a professional environment, clothing like that sends out a mixed message...and I love it!

    My wife worked in an hospital office in the 1980's and always wore skirts, blouses, high heels and sometimes dresses. Today she still works but dresses very casual. I probably own more dresses and heels than she does.

    Mid to late 1980's, fresh out of college, working on Wall Street. Most definitely women's fashion was a huge influence.

    It's ironic ... I finally found a group of guys I fit in with. Funny how they all enjoy being one of the girls.

    I love office wear - business suits and envy when I see pretty lady wearing it. I have yet to fully dress in business suit yet.

    Emily Mortimer (in the series, The Newsroom) wears office wear better than anyone. I'd love to be able to dress as she did.

    Lots of influences, office coworkers, sales ladies at stores, people watching on a sunny warm day downtown when no coats required, and yes today it is harder to find women not wearing casual clothes. Love the business look when hosiery was part of the dress code for women, should have been for men too!

    My white blouse was getting worn out, so I bought a white satin blouse and gray pencil skirt when they went on an end of season sale last year.
    Unless you are short or have fabulous legs, I think the hemlines are too short for the average GG to be flattering. My pencil skirt falls just below the knees.

    I wear heels all the time at work. While they aren't stilettos, they do make a distinctive sound when I walk down the linoleum floors.

    I work around a lot of women. Their standard outfit is leggings or sometimes jeans. Ok, ok, I have a lot of leggings, but I usually prefer to wear a dress.
    What do I do on days when I don't crossdress? I have no idea.

    I worked in hospitals since I started as a volunteer at 14; those cute white nurse dresses uniforms are what I craved, and once old enough to order my own from the catalogs, got several. Sadly, I lost them all in a purge back in the 80's, and they no longer make all of those cute dresses, so they're gone forever unless I want to learn to sew and make my own, and still, I'd have to find patterns to do that, as I'm not skillful enough to do it all from scratch. Yes, I know, some foreign countries still have nurses which wear those style of white dresses, but those aren't available in large enough sizes to fit a very fully grown, tall, large male.

    There's an addendum at post # 82 on that thread, too. It's about a ten minute read.
    Why don't we understand our desire to dress, behave and feel like a girl? Because from childhood, boys are told that the worst possible thing we can be, is a sissy. This feeling is so ingrained into our psyche, that we will suppress any thoughts that connect us to being or wanting to be feminine, even to the point of creating separate personalities to assign those female feelings into.

    My favorite office job wasn't because of the work, but because of the people.

    In particular, the supportive GG's & the gay males.


    The GG's wore business casual, though depending on the person & the day? It could be more casual than business (or vice versa).

    Some obviously went more femmy & dressed up more often. Kudos to them -- they looked great! But I don't blame any of them for not doing it all the time (if rarely)... I can respect & understand that.

    But the absolute best part? Going out socially with them outside of work -- while en femme!

    It was always so surreal, and always so much fun. They were so awesome & genuine. Memories that will last a lifetime.


    If you're "eligible" & have the opportunity to do something similar? You definitely gotta go for it!


    Of course, be mindful that you're likely to be the subject of office gossip, because of that. If you're cool with that, and can handle it well? Then have at it!

    I know everyone's situation can be different, but I did pretty okay with a lot more of my co-workers, both male & female, now knowing (and even seeing pics!) of my feminine social life. Yes, there were a couple of unnecessary verbal jabs from your typical male jerks. But overall? It wasn't so bad for me! (No way would I do this in my current profession, thanks, LOL!)


    Speaking of which... The blue-collar "office girls" at my current employer? The cute & fit GG's in athleisure wear.

    I was in college in the late '80's and in pre-internet days it was hard to get clothes. I managed to order a blue poly bow blouse and a lined black skirt and black heels from Pennies and Sears. It was my first major outfit since it was my first apartment alone. But a few days later I was walking through the Administration building and sure enough I caught sight of a good looking lady secretary with the same shoes, same blouse and same skirt! Got a real kick out of that and had a bit of a laugh. I thought she had good taste! Either that or she'd been in my stuff back home?? But no, all my stuff was still there when I returned home. Wild incident--the exact match of catalog stuff.

    I've got a herringbone vest with a short pencil herringbone skirt I love to wear. A sheer white ruffled sheer blouse with a black lace bra underneath, and of course garter, seamed stocking and heels and I'm good to go!

    I was definitely influenced by some of the women I worked with. A few times one of them would show up wearing something identical to what I had already bought. I always thought that was interesting.

    I like the 60's and 70's. My wife wore short skirts and dresses hose before panty hose came out. I was already dressing by then. Just didn't know there was more like me.

    I find the look appealing because it is usually very tidy with clean lines and reading this thread made me realise that I have on that exact office look today with a blue tweed pencil skirt and knitted top. Sitting in the cafe on a Saturday and I am definitely the only one amongst the sea of leggings and slouchy jeans (and the dreaded ubiquitous puffy coats) but I have always enjoyed not blending in.

    I miss the old office look. Most of my career has dealt with construction and the women naturally wore jeans. In a past position when I was in an office, most of the lady's worn dress pants of some type except for one. She always worn pencil skirts and platform heels. I definitely daydreamed many times about wearing her outfit. In today's environment with these flexible work schedules and what feels like a permanent move to casual dressing, when a lady does come into the office, they typically are wearing stretch jeans and running shoes. So boring.
    I am just a guy who enjoys wearing women's clothing and there is nothing wrong with that.
