The first time I set high heeled foot into a mall was one of the greatest moments of my life. These days I don’t get that thrill when I go shopping but I still have an amazing time. I get asked often where a t-girl should go when they are ready to go out or when they visit the Twin Cities. It really is up to you with what you’re comfortable doing and what you want to do.
If you’re feel comfortable going out, then the cities have a lot to offer. Personally I love going shopping at the many malls as well as downtown Minneapolis, but I also love visiting the art museums we have in Minneapolis. Shopping in the Woodbury area, as well as the part of Minneapolis known as 50th and France has some wonderful restaurants, cute coffee shops and really amazing shops.
If you’re looking for a new hair do, I recommend Sunny’s Hair and Wigs in the Uptown part of Minneapolis. Accessories I shop for at Fringe in Edina. Being a tall girl I can usually find something cute at Long Tall Sally in Bloomington but I also get almost all of my dresses at Dress Barn. Plus-size retailers, such as Torrid and Lane Bryant are also good stores to find clothes that fit a t-girl as some of us tend to have broader shoulders.
Shoes aren’t as easy, but I can almost always find a pair of cute heels at Payless, found in most malls. If you wear a size 12 or higher, your options are pretty limited unless you shop online. That being said, Minneapolis has a number of exotic clothing stores that sell a lot of clothes and shoes for…ah, night clubs and you can usually find heels in a larger size but then tend to be more along the five inch stilleto and thigh high boot variety. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 🙂
