It caught my attention, gave me a little chuckle, and got me thinking.
A group of women participated allowing their significant other to give them a makeover. Here is one example from the article.
Admittedly, her outfit in the before shot is hideous, and she could use a makeover. But the after outfit totally makes me laugh too. I will say that I think she looks better with the effort of the makeover, but that is definitely NOT something I'd be comfortable in on a daily basis. From what the article says, she wasn't too happy either.
I could totally relate to this article though because while I know my husband likes how I look, I also know he has dreams of me in tiny dresses with sky high heels. At least once during this deployment he's sent me links to clothes from VS asking what I thought. I had to explain to him that unless I get a night job dancing on a pole, I do not need sequins as part of my daily fashion routine. It's as if he hasn't noticed that I don't exactly look like a VS model either. While they may be able to pull that off, I could never! And really, I don't see those models playing in sandboxes and chasing after two little boys.
My fashion routine consists quite a bit of jeans and t-shirts with flip flops. I'm trying to breakout of that rut. I'm trying to put a little more femininity into my wardrobe, but even when I wear sun dresses, I somehow manage to dress them down. I am really, really going to try to put in some effort this spring. After all, I haven't seen my husband in a while, and I do want to impress him. It's still a few more weeks until homecoming, but once he's home I'm hoping to post some photos of the new-found effort I plan to put into fashion.
What's your fashion routine? What would your husband choose for you?
