Grocery Shopping in Beige

October 5, 2018

10/2/2018

I performed our weekly grocery shopping in a skirt again.  I also ran a non-grocery errand.  I wore a beige pencil skirt, A black top with a built-in cardigan, and black flats.

Fast Food
My first stop was at a fast food restaurant for supper.  No one noticed that I was in a skirt.  While I was eating, the employee who had taken my order started sweeping the dining area.  He eventually swept beside my booth.  We spoke very briefly.

Errand
My second stop was at a specialty store for an item.  I walked in to encounter two men and a child were at the cash register.  The child was talking to one man.  The man looked over and saw me.  He looked back at the child and then took a second look at me.  He looked at me like he was surprised.  It is rather unusual these days for people to give me surprised looks.

An employee greeted me.  I found what I wanted, but I needed assistance because the expensive item was locked up for security reasons.  I returned to the front and the employee took me back to where the product was.  A customer approached.  The customer wanted to talk to the employee.  Not noticing the customer, the employee asked me to wait while she got the product.

The customer and I were alone together.  She asked me if I knew where a product was.  I did not.  We just started talking until the employee returned.  Then the customer asked her for help.  I walked away and checked out with another employee.

Clothing Store
My next stop was not an errand.  It was a self-indulgence.  I went to a clothing and household items store.  I have shopped here several times before.  I quickly walked through the clothing racks looking for sales.  I was not concerned about customers other than scanning the room for anyone who might know me.  I made my way back to the shoe section.  I was looking for any flats in my size.

An employee saw me.  She asked if I needed any help.  I said no.  She later said, you look like you need some help.  Then, she apologized because she thought it sounded differently than she had intended for it to sound.  We started talking about shoes.  She was very friendly.  She complimented my outfit.  We talked for ten minutes.  I asked her to take my picture.  She agreed and suggested that I also sit down and let her take pictures.

Grocery Store
This week, I had a shorter shopping list.  The store was busier than last week.  Nothing interesting happened.  I was on the same aisle as a bright-eyed, red-haired woman a couple of times.  We did not interact.  I marveled at myself.  I was completely relaxed.  I forgot to look for people who might know me.  I was at ease.

When it was time to checkout, I went to the checkout line that had two young women working at it.  –Or so I thought.  The cashier turned out to be a long-haired boy.  The young woman who had been bagging groceries had moved to another checkout lane while the person ahead of me in line was paying.

The cashier called the bagger back in an unusual way.  He was trying to be nonchalant, but it was definitely not nonchalant.  I believe he wanted her to be there as he served a man in a skirt.  The three of us briefly talked.  When we were finished and I was leaving, I complimented the bagger on her hair.  Then I looked at him.  “Your hair is lovely too.”  We laughed.  His hair was frizzy, big, and not styled.

Another Clothing Store
I needed to change before returning home.  I decided to visit a small clothing store and ask if I may change in their dressing room.  They welcomed me in.  While I walked through the store, an employee whom I recognized from a previous visit here smiled at me and said, “You are SO cute!”  I thanked her and changed in the dressing room.

On my way out of the store, the employee stopped me and asked me about myself.  She said she had another customer who crossdresses.  She said that he presents female.  She only used masculine pronouns for him.  She said that he did not have any crossdresser friends.  I did not offer any contact information, but, the employee and I talked for a few minutes before I went home.

    I greet you from Central Europe!
    I have read almost all of your texts. I love it and I admire you for what you have the courage to do. I also have a weakness for pantyhose since I was little and I go there every day. In shorts and tights, I go to work in the summer by public transport. But I still do not have the courage to show myself in a skirt in public. Maybe in the end this year? I will read your adventures, maybe I will dare more quickly?

    P.S. Do you have white tights in the picture? I love this color, matching gray and black.

    • Hello. I greet you back from the United States! 🙂
      I happen to know what brand the tights are because they are unfortunately becoming scarce. I am wearing Shimera Everyday Sheer pantyhose in Pale Beige color. https://www.nordstromrack.com/shop/product/1400589/shimera-everyday-sheer-control-top-pantyhose-plus-size-available?color=PALE%20BEIGE
      These are a brand of sheer tights. I found this style about a year ago. I bought one pair. They fit me well and this color matches my skin very well. When I wear these tights, people cannot see that I am wearing them. They have a light shine to them and they feel nice. The only negative is that the control top is not very snug. The waistline will slide down. I think that this color may be discontinued
      I went back and looked at the pictures to see why you said that I was wearing gray. I see why you say that. (I like gray and black together too.)
      However, the skirt I am wearing is a beige color (a light-brown/yellow color). It is not quite khaki. It does look gray in the pictures.

      Do you wear shorts and tights to work? If so, you are the one with the courage!

      Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!

    Yes, I wear shorts and tights to work, of course when it’s warmer. Today we have -2 C and cold wind, so I do it rather in the spring and autumn. Now only tights under the pants. Because I mainly wear different shades of beige tights, I think most people do not notice at all. I noticed that I look the most when I go by bus. People then get bored and look at others. Everyone watches exhibitions in stores and does not pay attention to the details of other people. So far, I have not had any negative comments. Unfortunately, I do not have the courage to go out into the street in a skirt, although I know how fantastic I feel. When I was a teenager, I tried it many times in girlish mode, but now, with almost 6 feet and a male figure, I would be a caricature of a woman. Besides, I’m not a woman and I do not want to be her. Only women’s clothes are nicer, and the skirt, tights and ballerinas are the most convenient set for everyday use for me.
    I am waiting impatiently for further relations. I like most of your stylizations, I have to admit that I do not like maxi dresses. The knee length is the best, also in your case. You look like a devotee of Krishna (I have nothing against Krishna). I just do not like this style.
    Regards in the New Year.

    • I have been advised that maxi skirts are not as good of a choice for tall people. Until rather recently, I wore long skirts when my legs were unshaved. Since I have started bleaching my leg hair in summer, I can wear shorter skirts and feel good about my look.

      I will have to look up this Krishna. I am not familiar. I’m aware of the Hindu god by that name. Is Krishna a crossdresser?
