As is the norm these days, Alice wore perfume and a bra under her male clothing.
She complains that the office can be warm and she has to keep her suit jacket on as the shape shows through her shirt a little but I told her she can always take the jacket off….
However the frown was due to one of the ladies on the office spotting that Alice was wearing perfume. Alice tried unsuccessfully to tell her it was aftershave. The lady was not having it. Alice was and is quite distraught about this development. On the one hand I love the idea of her being caught with something female on but she wasn’t happy it was in the office. Therefore we’re potentially having one of those backward steps that happen sometimes as Aice is threatening to stop wearing anything female outside the home.
Alarm bells did ring but I decided to play it cool. I told Alice to get changed back into a nice skirt and I’ll make a cup of tea and we can have a chat about it. I thought it important to keep things on track and separate her temporary distress from her new reality as a girl. I reminded her to pop in her breast inserts too – gently.
Finally I calmed her down and asked her “what’s the problem with wearing perfume?” I told her to just tough it out and admit it. Say we share and it saves money or something. Anyway even if everyone gets to know it’s no crime and they’ll eventually get bored with it.
Let’s see what happens but I’m not letting things go backwards. My concern is also about the bra which she didn’t mention. Today she stayed at home and put on a bra and casual dress as normal when she got up so I think all is ok at home. I really need to accelerate her going out at night feminised to get past this and move on.
My other concern is how many more puns on book titles with Alice in the title I can think up!!!
