Dress me... as a woman.

One last costume (after 150 posts)... but there are so many to choose from. I could fill another month... more styles, stars, characters, national costumes, historical periods...

And I suppose that's the point. Dressing as a woman is so much more delightful than dressing as a man could ever hope to be. I want to do it every day.



Happy Halloween, ladies.

Dress me Fay Wray...

If it's Halloween, I might as well be the perfect horror heroine.


Whatever happened to Fay Wray? That delicate satin draped frame... As it clung to her thigh, how I started to cry... for I wanted to be dressed just the same.

Dress me Harem Girl...

Genie magic optional. Belly dancing required.



Kristen Bell as a character cosplaying as Slave Leia. It's all rather meta.

This. Yes. Please.

Dress me Vampire...

And you know I want this too... don't you?


Don't you wish for the red kiss of eternal beauty?

Dress me Fairytale Princess...

A last full week, time for some fantastical fantasies...

Based on certain previous posts, I doubt it will shock you that I want to be a fairytale princess.

When I wish upon a star...

Dress me 80s...

And now into an era I remember... and around the time I started dressing.


Sadly I didn't have Alex's wardrobe from Ashes To Ashes to dress up in!

Dress me Flapper...

Passing through the Georgian period (with a side visit to the Netherfield ball) and the American Civil War as well as a return to Victoriana, we come within a hundred years of home and a very modern retro style.


(As modelled by Clara again, last week.)

Dress me Renaissance...

A few centuries later, and a whole lot fancier.


Tight bodices, full skirts, elaborate decoration...

Monday, 20 October 2014

Dress me Medieval...

New week, new theme... History.


I love the Middle Ages... although I also like sanitation and religious freedom and the like. But dress me like Maid Marian and I won't complain about that for a while at least...


Especially this version. Silver satin gowns!

Dress me Model...

Hey, it's a job! Sort of cheating considering how many models I've already posted, but...

Ginta Lapina for La Senza lingerie. She looks like such a blonde bombshell for them, and a lot less so for other shoots...

Dress me Bunny Girl...

And if I'm going to be a waitress, why not a hostess... why not a Bunny Girl...


Let alone Amber Heard as a retro Bunny Girl. How did this TV show fail...?

Dress me Waitress...

The end of the working week, but girls like us work weekends too...



And yes, I lean towards 50s waitress. I know...

Thursday, 16 October 2014

Dress me Stewardess...

Another rather 50s / early 60s profession, with exacting standards of beauty and being ordered around by men in authority.



And a video too! Louise Wener, indie hero, doing it ironically.. and so damn well.

Dress me Nurse...

Another classic, and one I really do go for. (I blame the Carry On films...)


The white dress uniform sometimes with stockings, the retro style... taking orders from doctors and giving them to patients...


Yes, nowadays they wear scrubs, but where's the fun in that?

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Dress me Maid...

Not one I generally go for, but it's a classic, so...


Yvette from Clue makes it work.

Monday, 13 October 2014

Dress me Secretary...

New theme for the week... work. And uniforms.


Turned from a smart, capable businessman into his rival's sexy secretary... so close to masculine power but so very far from it... obeying the dress code... habing to do what I'm told if I want to become myself again... How can I help you today, sir?

Dress me Rocking...

The type of clubbing I normally do involves leather, stompy boots and unlikely hair.


Being a rock chick could be delightful. (So could being Ulorin Vex.)

Saturday, 11 October 2014

Dress me Clubbing...

I would love to find out who she is... and to be in her shoes. And that dress.

Daaaamn.

Dress me Naughty Schoolgirl...

But being British... I'm more of a St. Trinian's girl.


I'm a naughty girl and I need a spanking...

Wednesday, 8 October 2014

Dress me Prom Queen...

And as an all-American girl, I want that dress and tiara!


And you want it too...

(I may ever so slightly want to be Quinn from glee sometimes. Just sometimes. Not all the time. Nope.)

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

Dress me Cheerleader...

I'm not even American, and I'd still love to be this kind of all-American girl!


I'd be sooooo sweet.

Monday, 6 October 2014

Dress me Schoolgirl...

It's Monday, time for school.


Hey, at least I skipped the pigtails...

Sunday, 5 October 2014

Dress me 50s Housewife...

Maybe a little Stepford on the side.


I want to spend the rest of my life swishing around in beautiful 1950s dresses. Is that wrong?

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Dress me Bride...

Or better, make me a bride.


I'm an old-fashioned girl at heart, and I want a fairytale wedding.

Dress me Victorian...



I wish that was me on the right. Or the left, but the black brocade and hint of pink satin...

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

Dress me...

A month of dressing up? Okay!

I'm a bit busy to blog properly, so in lieu of that... dresses and outfits and costumes I want to wear!

Ah, October

The one month of the year I can stock up on Goth girl makeup with relatively little comment.
