About Hope

Hope Alexander is an unlikely fashion guru, pseudo philosopher, and lady who likes men who wear lingerie. Some say that Hope Alexander once round housed Chuck Norris. (After he claimed that public health care would have invariably resulted in the Virgin Mary aborting Jesus.) Others say she eats LOL cats on toast for breakfast and that she once scaled Notre Dame holding a freedom fry in one hand and a baguette in the other. It later turned out that the whole stunt had been filmed not a mile from a major road, which caused a major backlash against her popular bounty hunting tv series in which she bailed out ice heads, then tracked them down whilst wearing feathers and beads in her hair. Today, a shadow of her former self, she writes on the Internet.

Real Spider Silk Cloth

spider silk clothSome of you may recall this little tale I wrote concerning a fellow who created invisible lingerie by weaving the silk of spiders into cloth. Well, little did I know as I was writing it that somewhere in the world, (Madagascar, as it happens,) there were some guys actually painstakingly weaving silk cloth from the silk of a million wild spiders. As usual, life is far stranger and far more interesting than anything dreamed up in fiction.

Can A Dress Turn A Man Into A Woman?

victor victoriaBefore you scoff at the idea of a Y chromosome fixing garment which somehow knits the DNA of a man into a more feminine form, hear me out. Many men say that when they wear lingerie and women’s things they become softer and more feminine. A great deal of men report that when dressed en femme they find themselves expressing so called ‘feminine’ personality traits such as increased sensitivity and emotion. In some cases, their personality changes so much that they assign a female name to their new feminine identity.

Lovely Ladies Lace Gloves

free_people_glovesLace gloves, how pretty, how lovely, how feminine, how proper, how delightfully Victorian retro vintage.  They’re like lingerie for your hands!

Lace gloves are the perfect fashion accessory when one wants to say ‘My, look at how quirky and fashionable I am,’ without sacrificing manual dexterity in one’s digits. Wearing lace gloves one is still quite able to partake of dances at a ball, or typing missives upon the keyboard of one’s computational device.

Fine Lace Parasols | A Lady Like Life Saving Accessory

juliet hand made parasolOnce upon a time, fine ladies would always take a parasol with them when walking in the sun, because pale skin was valued highly. This is still the case in countries where a significant class divide exists between lowly peasant laborers and the educated upper classes whose skin need not be sullied by the rigors of hard work.

Crossover Hosiery For Men | Patterned Tights

plaid patterned tightsThis one goes out as a reader request I received via email. As the astute reader noted, patterned tights feel great and can pass as socks on occasion. Thus we have the makings of the perfect cross over hosiery for men, hosiery that feels feminine but which is ambiguous enough to throw clothing gender purists off the scent long enough for one to make good their escape through the briar patch.

Classic Camisoles | The Solution To Beige

lace camisoleAs part of my longstanding campaign for men who wear lingerie and against beige lingerie, this article will deal with the role and function of the camisole. Camisoles are items of lingerie which cover the shoulders and the torso. They are traditionally sleeveless. They feel lovely against the skin, due to the fact that they are most commonly made of nylon or silk and they look incredibly feminine as well.

Why Women Find Cross Dressing Men Scary

franknfurter3This is going to be something of a confessional for me, and whilst I don’t pretend to speak for all women, statistically the odds are likely that there are some women out there (and one or two guys,) who feel the same way. Of course, you’ll already know if you’ve browsed my catalog of articles here that I strongly support men who want to wear women’s clothing. However, I also completely understand when women feel intimidated by this act.

Precious Men’s Panties

lace pantiesA man’s panties are precious. Women may sometimes fail to understand the importance of panties to a man who loves to wear lingerie, because to us women, panties are really a practical item of every day existence. Sure, they can be used for appealing effect, and it is certainly true that not all panties are created equal, but nevertheless, panties are, for most women, just panties.

Lovely Ladies Jackets For Men

green_jacketA very subtle way to cross dress is to indulge in women’s outerwear which is ambiguous to begin with. Jeans are one type of clothing which can be interchanged between men and women quite easily, jackets are another.

A nice ladies jacket won’t just keep you warm, or make you look stylish, but it will also increase your feelings of femininity as you feel how it is cut.

Wonderful Women’s Wolbar Panties

vega pantiesMy thanks must go out to a kind reader for tipping me off to these quite exquisite panties with an ego to match. Panties from Poland, Wolbar may not initially have made much of a name for itself outside of its own shores, but that is all changing and quickly. It’s no wonder that Wolbar’s profile is rising, the quality and sheer inventiveness of their line blows many major lingerie designers out of the water.

Poisonous Lead In Your Lipstick? Probably.

lipstickBack in the day, many high born Egyptian women and men went mad and died. Why? Because they succumbed to the mercury and lead in their make up. It was fairly sad, but then again, their civilization existed around 3500 BCE and largely involved pushing big rocks around. We can forgive them for not being knowledgeable about the effects of the ingredients in their make up on their health.

If you’re a man who wears lipstick on occasion, this article is probably relevant to your interests.
