Do Clothes Make The Person?

Clearly not, however, this is what i posted on Angels, TG Forum:

At the moment I'm still entirely dressing for me. It's stuff I feel comfortable or that makes me look more the way i want to look (girl shaped!).

Just getting my head round dressing for appearing in public! Learning what might be ok for sitting around on the sofa and watching telly, might not be appropriate for a long walk around central London!

I've taken it for granted that if I do this right I'll be dressing to attract males; doesn't mean i want them to bother me - I'll settle for being admired from afar!!  :smile:

Am getting nice compliments at the moment from women I talk to on Twitter and it seems I'm getting it just about right albeit - slightly lagging behind the latest fashions!! (well I am over 40!)

I think Lizzie only emerged when I started getting the look right - its probably a psychological thing or similar to drama - once i had the mask on and I no longer looked like bob I was allowed to become Liz at a deeper level. I'm sure there are other ways of getting there.. but this is the way I got here.


I don;t think clothes ever make the person but they sure can help bring the inner person out to the surface!

Ban This Filth!: Letters from the Mary Whitehouse Archive by Ben Thompson – review | Books | The Guardian

Ban This Filth!: Letters from the Mary Whitehouse Archive by Ben Thompson – review | Books | The Guardian:

This is worth a read.  Mary Whitehouse single-handedly held British tv back 30 years or more with her incessant and irritating deluge of letters aimed at those who ran the media in the UK.

She didn't like sex, violence or swearing. As soon as she died we could all say "fuck" on telly as much as we liked. Never has anyone's death provoked such an instant, obviously positive benefit.

On the way home today


After a shift on the GLA pod today i  cycled back along the Thames path. At Woolwich there was a one ferry service.

it's rare that I get to frame all three ferries on one shot


A few spots of rain and massive rumbles of thinder in the distance - quickly moving in my direction.


I tried, but failed to get ahead of the storm. Ended up soaked to the bone!

Greenwich

Today i was mainly herding horse fans back from the equestrian centre to the train stations - DLR left, mainline trains right. 


I stopped at Woolwich to take some sunset shots looking back at London



a tall ship was on the move - i tweeted and coincidentally a tall ship was also passing the Tate & Lyle plant in Liverpool!

NHS Chief Quits, Calls Austerity a Weapon to “Dismantle the State” | Andy Worthington:


Dr. Gabriel Scally, who resigned in April, also talks of “a very deliberate policy across all of the public sector to roll back the achievements that have been made in this country since the second world war,” and “a systematic downgrading, if not destruction, of civil society in England” by the Tory-led coalition government, as well as speaking about “the circling birds of prey of the private sector seeking to make big profits out of healthcare.”

Lazy Sunbathers

I took a stroll today, along the canals of east London. I dragged along a friend, and we were determined to see some of the Olympic Park and surrounding area before it was mostly closed off to the public. We were just in time! We entered the canal tow path from Victoria Park. Almost immediately we came across these tiny sculptures:
