Men Dressing Women and Fashion

Have you seen this article over at yahoo.com?  Women let men dress them...

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?

That was so funny. I would love to be able to wear the sky high heels because they have so many pretty one's out there, but I'd probably break my neck. Like you it's casual clothes. I can understand how guys deployed get a little lonely and try to imagine their wives in these type of clothes. I can't wait to see how your new found effort goes...maybe it will inspire me. I have a feeling you will be able to pull this off, no problem.

HA! This made me laugh out loud!
My husband and I have this conversation often.
I am a practical girl...heels, sequins, and short/tight things are not practical for my life (nor flattering on my body) I understand that he likes the way those things look and I do try, but I also know what does not work on my body.
