As I had to travel over to Harrow to pick up the new van I decided to make the journey worthwhile and the time well spent, for me this meant that I travelled semi dressed, or what you might call stealth mode. I had sheer hosiery under my ladies jeans, a new pair of ballet style pumps with a small but undeniable heel. I also had eye makeup, lip gloss, my "pearl" rope and a well padded bra with boobs! I had a quite large man's burgundy cord shirt and a ladies denim jacket, as the jacket has no usable pockets I carried what needed to be carried in a white cotton shoulder bag. Although I was not aware of attracting any great attention, my choice in footwear did get a few glances.

After collecting the van I added foundation, powder, etc to my make up and put on the rest of my jewelry and wig. This all felt a little weird as I was wearing flats and jeans, but was no longer in stealth mode. Well I stopped off a large Tesco in Wembley to pick up a few supplies, when I had gathered my purchases and was looking around for the shortest checkout queue a very helpful young male assistant directed me "The basket checkouts are at the other end, Madame" I was so thrilled at being called Madame at that point I could have hugged him. I am sure that had he known he would be pleased that I restrained myself.
This tells me that to pass or at least be accepted I don't need to glam up, a few serious clues are sufficient. I had been feeling a little unsure of myself, did I look like a woman, or bloke wearing makeup, that "Madame" was so reassuring, I found a whole new spring in my step afterwards. I am now wondering how little makeup I can get away with wearing, is less more? it should certainly be more comfortable, and maybe less obvious
