TRANNY BEDTIME STORIES

Today at work my boss asked me to run a few errands down the street.  I pretty much always wear my stripper boots at work, but normally I change out of them if I need to leave the store and walk more than two blocks.  WELL, today I didn't.  I felt confident about walking ten blocks in eight inch boots - just yesterday afterall I had worn them all day for class so I felt like walking down Broadway would be okay.  Nooope.

It was pretty fucking terrifying.  Uneven sidewalks, large cracks, dimpled concrete.. all potentially deadly obstacles!!  These boots are perfectly comfortable on even surfaces - I usually wear them at work for six hours - but the second they hit sidewalks they're a completely different animal.  I didn't trip or fall, but my legs were exhausted when I made it back and --- !!!! --- the heel on one of the boots was starting to tear off from the shoe's upper.  My heart sank when I noticed.  These are my babies!

Also, let me clarify my other stripper boots (see last photo) are only 1.25" shorter than the ones I wore today but are perfectly fine to walk around outside in.  The giant platform on the eight inchers makes them much less friendly.  People always equate platforms with comfort, but big platforms are generally very unstable.

***PS While walking to a bodega inbetween classes a six year old girl complimented my shoes.  Made my day.

  1. They're both by Pleaser. They're sold at sex shops and online.

  2. nooo, so sad that they're breaking. those are absolutely stunning, though i can see how walking on sidewalks could be quite the task.

  3. I think a lot of it is also anxiety - my legs were super tense on the sidewalk, but at work and around campus I'm much more relaxed.

  4. Aww that sucks. But they are amazing. Maybe you can invest soon enough to another one? How much did you pay?

  6. Hello William, I love these boots. I've had a few too long ago.
    Since I have not yet made public my inclinatione to transvestism to my roommates, I had to make it over.
    Presumably will buy 'a pair soon, I now live alone.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
