I am married and have not been en femme for nearly six years, and had never been "out" en femme. After a trip to Paris with my family and the purchase of sexy French lingerie by my wife while we were there I could stand no more! I began seeking CD fantasy service locations while recuperating at home from knee surgery and stumbled upon the Emerald Fantasy website. I live near San Francisco, so Seattle is a short flight away. I signed up, nearly three months in advance, and anxiously waited for my knee to heal sufficiently! Meanwhile, I went online and ordered tons of goodies, had then sent to Angel... so I would have plenty of great stuff to play with when I got to Seattle. Finally, it was time…
Arrived at SeaTac and picked up the rental car (a late model red Mustang - sexy chick's sports car! Yow!) and drove to the La Hacienda in South Seattle and checked in. Arrived there at 1:30PM, checked in, start time was 4PM, so had time for lunch at BK and to run to Safeway in West Seattle to pick up some stuff I would need (makeup remover towelettes, nail polish remover, women's body wash and deodorant, etc.). Went back to room, shaved what I could shave (including showering with the women's body wash and then applying the women's deodorant, then shaving my face with electric and non-electric razors to get the beard as short as possible) and waited. Finally, the magic hour had arrived!
I drove over to the salon location (only 5 minutes away from La Hacienda - very close location!) and pushed the doorbell button. Angel came to the door and escorted me into the salon. First, a quick tour of the salon, where she showed me the makeup/dressing room, clothes storage room (Wow! A lot of stuff - she had owned a women's clothes store prior to E.F.) and the ladies room (no men's room!), also the upstairs club room where the other girls lockered their things and came to do their CD thing. Then back down to the dressing room, where all the stuff I had ordered was piled up - like a CD's Christmas!
After going through the piles and opening everything, Angel suggested we get started and that I first put on my "foundation garments". First, I put on a matching stretch lace tap pant and bra (38C) from Spiegel's - heavenly! I then placed "C" size breast forms in my bra - with the nipples gently poking through the bra material, oh how cute! I began feeling feminine like I hadn't for nearly six years! Then a side-and rear-padded panty girdle (from underworks.com) to give my hips and butt a more womanly shape. A corset (from WickedRed.com) which squeezed my figure into a more feminine shape (not too far, just wanted a little bit of a narrowed waist, didn't cut off my breathing and looked great!), and finally two pair of opaque black pantyhose, I couldn't shave my legs since my wife would notice, so I had ordered a few types of hose from various websites, put the more sheer on first, not enough coverage, oh darn, then a heavier pair, ah that's more like it! A little warm, but it is a little chilly out and would not be too uncomfortable, in fact they felt great! Then I put on my black suede "Collette" square-toe2 ¾" heels (from Nordstrom's), and I was ready for my makeup!
Before applying the makeup Angel pointed out that makeup could be applied in two basic ways: either in a natural fashion or in an ultra-glam, "campy" fashion. Angel recommended the more natural appearance; it would not stand out so much and would allow me to "pass" much more easily. I agreed, and we began!
Angel first looked over my face and noted that my face had some characteristics (such as my cheekbones, lashes, and eyes) that when properly emphasized with makeup would look very feminine. First concealer to hide beard and mustache, then face powder to further conceal my beard, then another application of concealer and powder. Blush then went on, and then eye shadow, eyeliner, and mascara. Finally a light dusting of powder to set it all. My face had taken on a very feminine cast, but my crew cut made my appearance still not totally feminine. Hair was next. Angel explained that, while my eyebrows weren't very bushy, a wig with bangs would minimize them and enhance my feminine appearance. First we tried a bouffant blonde wig. The effect was amazing! My appearance became totally feminine! I couldn't get over it, and kept staring at myself in the mirror. After donning a satin kimono, Angel suggested we get some pictures, so we did - my first pictures en femme! She pointed out that women tend to stand with their legs together, and that they kept their elbows in more than men. I tried to keep these points in mind as I posed.
I then put on a pink satin maid's outfit with a big white petticoat, white stockings (I took off the pantyhose and we gartered the corset to do this), and white 5" heels with ankle straps. More pictures of this, it was very cute but the heels were killing my knee, so I reluctantly took it off, I had to get ready to go out next!
Then we went and tried on various combinations of dresses, skirts, blouses and wigs, with Angel taking pictures, until we found a good combination. My favorite wig was a longish dark auburn (Angel said I looked a little like Trisha Yearwood!), a knee-length black skirt, and a print blouse. We then put on some mauve press-on nails, which made my hands look more feminine as well (I had shaved off the hair on my hands, it was all I dared do!). Angel then suggested I eschew my pretty but high 2-¾" heels in favor of some pointed-toe low-heel shoes, since we would be walking around and it would make me stand out, as she pointed out that tall women always get checked out, and I am 6 ft in my stockings! So, I agreed to the suggestion. She provided a purse, and I put my makeup essentials in (compact, blush, and lipstick), along with my wallet and watch. She found a pretty gold chain for me to put around my neck. A lady's coat was found for me, and it was off to the mall!
We drove up to Northgate Mall, and Angel told me to keep my stride short and try to walk with feet somewhat in line in order to look feminine as I walked. This way of walking also makes your butt wiggle up and down like a woman's when you do it, try it and see! She also said to keep smiling, as that brought out my cheekbones and made me look more feminine, and to keep my head up and look natural. "Always be Nicole"!
We were there at the mall because I wanted to buy a pair of women's bedroom slippers and a pair of reading glasses (can't read in my contacts!). We parked, and tried to go into JC Penney's but they had closed early, so we went into the mall and headed for Bon Marche' - wow I was nervous! I tried to keep everything in mind that Angel suggested as we chatted and walked towards Bon Marche'. There were no curious stares or catcalls. I was passing!
Then into Bon Marche' and to the women's slippers department. I found a pair of extra large tiger fur slippers. The salesgirl asked if we were finding everything OK, Angel said "yes" and I mumbled "uh-huh", still very self-conscious about my voice. Then Angel wanted to check out the sales items in women's clothing, so off we went. I found a cute skirt (not easy to read the tags in my contacts!) and she sent me into the ladies dressing room to try it on! I went in, promptly pulled off a nail, and had to repair it. I tried on the skirt, didn't like it as much, so I put my own skirt back on and came back out. Angel found some items in sale that she liked, and we went to the cashier. She paid for her items, then my turn! The girl at the register looked at me and smiled, and I pulled out the money from my purse and handed it over to her.
After the mall experience we drove to a nearby restaurant, Copper Sky, and walked in. The hostess smiled at us, asked if we wanted seating for two, and took us to a table, where we were seated. We were given menus and I pulled out my new reading glasses and checked out the food. Our waitress came, smiled, and asked us what we would like to drink - Angel ordered us margaritas. We talked, and our food arrived. I had to remember to "be Nicole" and eat like a lady, I think I did well - no one was staring at us, in fact we didn't seem to attract any attention from other patrons whatsoever - perfectly fine! I was in "feminine mode", as Angel put it, so I didn't' eat a lot. We finished up, had my leftovers boxed, and I pulled out my compact and fixed my lipstick (I had always wanted to do that!), paid up (I left her a large tip for being so sweet) and out we went into the night.
We headed back to the salon, and Angel gave me the rest of the makeup I would need to do my face the next day. I went back to the motel (en femme!), and made two trips from the car to bring all the stuff into my room.
We were supposed to meet around 6:30 that evening, and I wanted to go visit the gravesites of Bruce and Brandon Lee, so I showered and got ready to go for breakfast. After dressing, I discovered that I had left my boy shoes at the salon! All I had were the tiger fur ladies' slippers! I tried to call Angel, but all I got was the answering machine. Oh boy, what a pickle!
I recalled I had seen a Payless Shoes store up at Northgate Mall the previous evening, so I decided to drive up there in my slippers, and if asked say that my shoes had been soaked and that my wife had lent me her largest slippers to wear. That's exactly what happened - as I was paying for my sneakers the salesgirl asked and I told her that I had been drinking too much and lost my balance and fell into a pond, so she bought the story. Moral: always take ALL your boy clothes back with you, you may need them!
I returned to my motel room. Took a nap, then showered, put on my foundations and my makeup, had forgotten the lip liner, oh well, just used the lipstick, finished up and got dressed, then went out to my car. The motel manager was out in the lot and did a double take when he saw me getting into the same car that I had as a man, but he then turned and went back into the office. Angel told me that I wasn't the first of her girls to stay there, so it was cool.
Arrived at the salon, went in, Angel critiqued my makeup job, not bad, eyeliner a little light on the upper lids and the blush was a little high, so she fixed the problems. Tried on some more clothes and settled on an above-the-knee black skirt with blue stripes, a black silk blouse (that Angel had purchased at Bon Marche the night before), and changed from my corset to one that Angel had, a very strong one! She tightened it up until I had almost a wasp waist, wanted to look good for clubbing! Put on mauve nail polish to match my lipstick. Put on the low heels (another mistake as it turned out later!), brought my high heels for clubbing, and went out.
We drove into Seattle center, then up Broadway and finally to a Thai restaurant named "Angel's"! We parked, walked to the restaurant from the lot, on the way Angel took a picture of me "out on the town", brrr it was cold, still not used to cold temps and nylons. We went into the restaurant and were immediately seated. I was still a bit nervous, but not as bad as the first night, and the waiters and waitresses treated us like the ladies we were. We had Thai iced teas and lemon grass soup and chicken satay and pad thai, again Nicole couldn't finish all her food, and so my leftovers were boxed up for later. We paid up and left for the drag club.
We drove by the drag club, but it was closed! So we decided to go to a nightclub called "Neighbors", which sometimes had drag shows there, real professional affairs. We parked, walked over to the club, paid the cover (no drag show on Saturday, just a DJ and dancing), and went in. The clientele was a mixture of gay, lesbian, straight, and CDs, just my kind of place! I fit in just fine! Unfortunately, my doctor had told me to avoid dancing for a while because my knee was not yet healed, so Angel and I got some margaritas, went upstairs, found seats and people watched and "danced" on the seats! Oh I wanted to dance so bad! Next time, I promised myself! We left around 11:30 PM, early for the club but as I had to call wife and wish her a good night, and was calling very late, we had to go. I took off the wig and makeup and clothes, put on another satin nightgown, made my phone call, had a beer and some leftover Thai food, and went to bed.
I went out for breakfast as a boy, also went to the correct cemetery and visited the graves of Bruce and Brandon Lee, then went back and showered, put on makeup nail polish and dressed for the evening. Then I drove over to the salon, changed to an ankle length purple and black skirt (I was in the mood for a longer skirt) with the same blouse, with the high heels.
I wanted to do some lingerie shopping at Victoria's Secret, something I had always wanted to do. My toes had been rubbed raw by the pointed-toe low heels, they were too narrow for my feet at the toes, so I was going to have to wear the high heels the rest of the time. I drove over to Northgate Mall (Angel wanted to take a ride in my red Mustang) and we went into the mall. I really enjoyed being en femme, and was the most relaxed I had ever been today, I felt very femme, very relaxed. Wow! Felt great! I couldn't keep the smile off my face as we walked into Victoria's Secret.
A salesgirl came over and asked if she could help me, and I said yes, and we struck up a conversation as she helped, she was very solicitous and helpful! She found me a cute pair of white satin and lace panties and a 38C satin and lace bra for me to take home to use when my wife wasn't around. She also helped me pick out a pair of ivory micro-fiber hi-cut briefs to wear on the flight home tomorrow. I loved it! Some men were in the store with their ladies and eyed Angel and I, but I just looked at them and smiled back. I received the distinct impression they were jealous of me and wanted to be in my place! My smile kept growing… I kept shopping and checked out all the lingerie I cared to, it was a dream come true, I didn't feel self-concious at all, very natural! Angel found some panties on sale, and we paid for our purchases and went over to Rite Aid for the other items I wanted.
At Rite Aid I bought my mascara, but they did not carry "orangewood" sticks for fixing my nails. But we found them at the Bon Marche'. Had to sit down again on the way to the car, next time have to get some really comfy walkabout low heels!
We then drove to a Mexican restaurant named Azteca, down by the locks. Angel said there was a great view. We found the place and went in and were given a table up on the upper level. The waitress came, greeted us with a "good evening ladies" (which I absolutely loved and made my smile even bigger!), and asked us what we wanted to drink. Angel got a margarita, and I got a strawberry daiquiri, always had wanted to try that girl drink. The drinks came, and I really enjoyed my daiquiri! We ordered, and some huge plates of food appeared. As usual, Nicole wasn't able to eat a whole lot, subconsciously watching my figure, I suppose. Paid up, left, and drove around the city touring the Fremont section (saw the "center of the universe") and past Pike Place and back to my motel to pick up my gowns and girl stuff and then to the salon, where I had to ungirl and go back to boy. Bummer! However I had my new bra and panties (as well as a white satin and lace garter belt and stockings I kept, figured I could manage to hide some small items at home) to lounge around in until the next day, when I could wear my new panties home (and change out of before my wife could find out!).
I'm definitely going back in the coming months! I want to go dancing with a healed knee and am going to order a sexy skirt and satin blouse to go dancing in! Also have to get the low heels for shopping and general touring, Angel says high heels are for dancing! Next time I am also going to stay en femme as much as possible, get my nails done professionally first day and then stay femme!
