The boy's engagement shoot outfit was chosen in a frantic rush in downtown San Francisco in which we hustled from one Zara to another right before closing. I couldn't blog about it at the time because I was keeping our engagement session a secret. Looking back, it was a pretty hilarious two hours of keeping him in the dressing room and me throwing any item of clothing that was an xs/s over the door. I felt like I was on America's Next Personal Shopper Superstar; the excitement of actually being able to pick out his clothes must have been fueling all that energy because he never. ever. lets me pick out his clothes. [By the way Zara, your tie rack is super annoying with the clamps that hold the ties in place. Makes it much more difficult to grab things and shove them at my fiance.]
Thankfully I have more than 2 hours at Zara to pick out an outfit for the wedding. After a disappointing few months of realizing that nothing fits him, we are getting a suit tailored. [Anyone else who is running into this issue with buying a suit--PM if you want to commiserate with me!] The suit [I think, like 70% sure] is going to be blue and slim fit. Now I just need a shirt and tie.
I'm thinking a red tie will be nice with the blue, but I don't want him looking like a politician, so I'm on the hunt for a skinny red tie. Plus, the skinny just looks better on a small frame. Sadly, none of the above are skinny, so I'm on the look out.
Are you picking out clothes for your partner? Does your partner dress you? Tie or bow-tie?
