Also, try searching for, "red dress run" in Google images.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

I encountered one of these runs a few years ago. There is a post about it here.

Have fun,

I've never worn a dress and I doubt I ever will.

However, this event did remind me about a plain orange tee-shirt which I used to own years ago. I bought it at a Spanish market and, when I got it home, it was massively too long and I gave it to my wife to wear as a dress. She did use it as such, with a broad belt. After some years, I reclaimed it as something to wear over my swimming trunks when bumming around on the beach so I didn't get my shoulders and back sunburned.

Any really long tee-shirt is, in reality, a dress. Consequently, it is no great step for a man to wear a basic tee-shirt dress - and it is a garment which is extremely simple, loose, comfortable and cheap. After all - it is just a tee-shirt - but a few inches longer.

MOH gave me just such a garment in yellow and I may just dig it out for the hot weather we are having! :twisted:
