Lace Guess Dress and Ankle Boots

There are days when my Dysphoria tries to get the better of me and this weekend has been one of those occasions. Though having a busy social calendar this weekend I tried by best to look good and not let my dysphoria get me down too much.  I had both an afternoon pub meet up and then I was off to Torquay for a night out to celebrate two friend’s birthdays.

I decided to wear the dress I purchased from the Guess outlet store during my trip to London last Christmas. I’ve worn it a few times since but have never managed to get a good photograph of it in the mirror at home. Now that I’m using the tripod and remote more often, I finally manged to get some good photos this weekend.

I also picked up these booties from Ebay recently. They are the black version of my burgundy booties that I finally managed to pick up for a reasonable price. I love the buckles up the back.

Finally I added a red pvc belt from Amazon for a bit of colour and to complement my hair.

In between getting back from the pub meet and heading out for was when the dysphoria hit. Looking in the mirror I just felt ugly and is that a dark patch on my face? or was it just the light? and other nagging questions that transwomen face when looking in the mirror. At some point I’ll probably try and explain it better but my head needs to be in a better place first. So instead to finish, have a few more outfit shots.

    I think you look fabulous, Sadie! I love this outfit. I certainly have days too where I get hung up on things about my body/hair/skin. I try to overcome it by wearing one of my favorite outfits on those days. And for me, personally, getting a good workout in in the morning helps too. Even if I’m feeling down about myself, it always makes me feel better knowing I can run X amount of miles, or squat X amount of weight, etc. knowing my body can do some cool stuff helps (even if I don’t really like the way it looks that day). But you look so cute! I’m loving your hair color!
