I'm not sure how one thing leads to another. I've wanted to do a post about admired women, past and present who cross dress in style.
I wrote a title for the post and saved it in my drafts in November. Since then I have debated on how to do these women justice on this blog. I prefer impulse writing and was starting to get paranoid that I was elaborating on it too much.
The events of the last couple of days have lead to this.......
Last week my wonderful friends at Hennessy sent me an invitation to their Literary Awards on the 20th.
That same day I ran into a cafe on the second floor of a children's department store, and came across an identical pair of shoes which I had bought in the same place two or three years earlier and was wearing, even though they were falling apart
Posting on Twitter and Facebook my delight about finding the 'little lads' shoes, I was subjected to public inquisition and 'teasing' about my taste in boys attire.
Considering I'm 5ft and barely a size 3, choice of shoes, in Ireland is quite limited...and yes.... I admit to the universe... I love men's clothes and the written word....!
So if that makes me a 'BlueStocking' cross dresser ...so be it. ; )
And in true bluestocking style,
POB by POB, styling by Mark and yours truly.
I will be sharing over the next few days some of the shortlisted's work.
