This weekend has been a whirlwind of activity between my grand opening celebration, makeover and transformation appointments, and tgirlnation! My grand opening celebration welcomed three trans-girls who debuted for the very first time as ladies and another girl who wore makeup for the first time! The day’s activities started early at noon and finished after 1 a.m.!
Set-up and Two Fabulous Surprises!
My first guest, Kim, arrived at noon and graciously helped me set up and finalize details for the 7 p.m. party. Kim debuted later that evening looking absolutely stunning and shocking guests that this was her first time out! At 3 p.m., Darcy stopped by to toast to my new studio with a fabulous bottle of Roederer sparkling wine from Anderson Valley. She planned to stay in drab but I convinced her to just try on a few things. Before you know it, she was adorned with a slim shaper corset, panty reshaper, tights, shoes, bra, breastforms, and a wig sipping bubbly wine out of champagne flutes! Shortly after Darcy left, I received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from Sandy to wish me the best on my open house. 🙂
From 4-5 p.m., three girls arrived to transform from drab into fab and two had no clothes of their own. I helped Belinda and Gina dress from head to toe including accessories and then we set out to do the skin care and makeup for all three. Michelle chose a neutral look from the Mary Kay catalog, which fit her personality well. Belinda tried out the new Smoke & Shimmer Eye Wand in Amethyst Smoke. We created an Enchanted Forest look similar to Dawn’s look from the Fantasy and FairyTales limited edition line. Gina went for a light smokey eye look using the Violet Storm creme eye shadow and granite and crystalline mineral eye shadows. We added on the Mary Kay @ Play pink lip crayon and Berry Me lip jelly gloss for a fun, flirty lip look. I snapped photos for the girls to use on their MeetUp profiles.
Party On with Girls and Prizes!
By the time I finished helping the last girl with her makeup, the party was in full swing downstairs. I opened a bottle of Cava, poured myself a glass of bubbly, and started meeting the rest of the guests. After we chatted for a good while, I gave out lots of prizes including free makeup and skincare and discounted products and services. Every girl won a prize in addition to enjoying 10% all of my products and services and 20% off my skin care through this past Sunday. 🙂
After girls added their favorite makeup and skincare items to their beauty collections, the girls split into two groups with some heading to Ziegfeld’s/Secrets in DC and other to Freddie’s Beach Bar in Crystal City. Ziegfeld’s/Secrets offers drag shows and male dancers in a nightclub setting while Freddie’s features nightly karaoke in a relaxed bar decorated with flamingoes and Barbies. Both venues are accepting of trans-ladies. I was far too exhausted to attend an after-party–the first after-party I have missed with one of my events. There’s always next time though! 🙂

I started a daunting task this weekend to tackle a serious yet delightful problem. I’m reorganizing my makeover studio so I can better access and display my girly clothes, wigs, jewelry, makeup, skincare, corsets, body shapers, bras and panties, and shoes! Wow! So much girly stuff to fit into one transformation studio!
Wigs: I’m up to eight wigs now including seven designer wigs including from Rene de Paris and Revlon along with one costume wig! They are now on wig stands though I need more surfaces to display their beauty.
Shoes: I have gorgeous shoes from size 8 to size 15 from brands including Steve Madden, Nine West, Pleaser, Rockport, Enzo Agiolini, Chinese Laundry, and more! I want to show them off so all the girls can admire them when they walk in!
Jewelry: I have added a beautiful, antique, Chinese-influenced jewelry box that I purchased from San Francisco. Now girls can have the fun of searching through drawers for jewelry just like genetic girls do. 🙂 I’ve added more clip-on earrings and gold bangle bracelets to my gorgeous collection featuring many one-of-a-kind pieces from arts and craft shows along with more accessible pieces.
Clothes: I have clothing from size 6 to size 1X and not enough closet space to display it all! I’m looking to add a chest of drawers to organize some of the items and free up valuable closet space. I have the little black dress, mini skirts, pencil skirts, jeans, camisoles, a cardigan, school girl skirt, an evening gown, a black dress with white polka dots and a pink sash, and more. The wardrobe also features a variety of wraps and scarves–perfect for creating that flirty look!
Bras and Panties: I have colorful, girly bras with band sizes from 34 to 44 and a variety of cup sizes. For that rare girl that doesn’t have her own panties, I have sizes 7 through 12. I added a 3-drawer end-table under the jewelry box that will hold the lingerie and make it easier to find your size!
Corsets and Body Shapers: I have demo corsets that fit chest sizes from size 32 to 44 and panty reshapers in every size along with new inventory available for purchase. I’m still brainstorming the best way to organize and display these hourglass-enhancing body shapers.
Makeup and Skin Care: I have a full line-up of Mary Kay skincare and makeup to use for our makeover sessions with all items available for purchase. These products are already well-organized. 🙂
I’m sure I have more than this in my girly fantasyland to organize but these seems like quite enough for now! Email me if you’d like to schedule a total transformation or a makeup lesson!
Here’s to being fabulous and enjoying the girly paradise of my makeover studio!!!
