Hi

Post by hillaryskirt »

It’s nice to be here. This feels like a real find with a good vibe. I live in the UK and am proud of my Scottish DNA and have worn a kilt for Hogmanay and yeah.
Dig the skirt wearing too; my favourite is a classic longer A-line.
I have great respect for ‘the boyz’ - & you guys who have the balls to be real and true. Courage - I can smell it it’s great.
That’s about it for now - Hillary

It's funny how things change. I remember a time when I slipped on 'ladies' stuff' [as a young man] and in my worst moments felt like a'creep in the night ' but now my girlfriends just smile indulgently when I tell them of my latest skirt 'slipping on' adventure.
I am not being glib - there are real challenges out there - but I merely note the changing culture.

Hi hillary, yeah, we've all been through the uncomfortable feeling that there's something wrong with our minds. Normal. But remember that we are overcoming a lifetime's worth of brain-washing, conditioning, call it what you will. It's been going on since we were old enough to walk. But you are now on a road that will be mostly light-hearted and joyful but, like any road, it has it's bumps and twists and turns. Be prepared for them but don't let them stop you moving forward. At times, stop and sit on the verge and contemplate how far you've gone and prepare yourself for the next stage of the journey - it'll be a ride like no other that you've had!!!!
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Sounds like you have some great girl friends.

I wish I knew a few women that were open minded like that. For years I have wanted to go on a clothing shoping trip with a woman or two or three.
And be a part of that collective shopping experience. I absolutely love skirt shopping and would love doing it in a group.

I went to my local thrift shop Saturday, bought 2 more skirts and one skort.

Tried to try on four others, but decided they were not my size, or very practical. Best thing of all when I got to the checkout. It was a 50% off every thing sale day. So the three skirts only cost me $7.00 total.

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

Thanks yes I have some great girlfriends however when I say girlfriends I mean basically women I know! One of them is my counsellor!
Anyway women can be sooo understanding of men wearing skirts.
Re your thrift shop visits I can relate to that: it's a favourite pastime..

Welcome Hillary. Out of curiosity, is "Hillary" one of those names like "Lesley" or "Kimberly" that are used without regard to a person's sex (more often in the old world than the new world, perhaps), or are you paying homage to a certain former candidate for United States president, or what? My name never used to be one of those, but ever since Daryl Hannah became famous I've noted some other female Daryls out there on occasion.

Oh hi Daryl.
The short answer is yes Hillary is one of those names that spans genders. Kimberly is an interesting idea too. Daryl Hannah? Cripes! That must be rare to use as a female name.

Hello Hillary from S.W. Cornwall ...I have been wearing skirts and Traditional Scottish Kilts for years....Even The Cornish ,The Welsh
and the Irish have their own Kilts....Joe Public does not care what the Man in a Skirt wears out on the street.... so just find your favourite
style and go for it....An easy fit which several members enjoy wearing is the traditional summer skirt with an elasticated waist band.

Usually about 5 pounds , £5..., in a charity shop......full and comfortable for driving and walking .............weeladdie

Thank you Wee Laddie and a traditional summer skirt sounds perfect for the warm months ahead and I like my skirts to be comfortable. I also like A-line as a more tailored style and below the knee (I'm rather conservative).
Have a nice evening.
Hillary
