Dude.

Tom and Logan were playing football in the backyard when I got home from Mass Sunday night. Tom walked in as I was putting my purse away and said,

"
I've been thinking about the suit you're wearing to your interview tomorrow.

Why don't you go with your tailored white blouse and silver jewelry instead?
"

Oh. My. Goodness. Exactly when did my husband completely morph into Tim Gunn's bff? It's really starting to freak me out. If you haven't read about my straight guy's queer eye, check out these posts.

He's actually been spot-on with his fashion advice. This, from the man who still has his 1980's Izods and Members Only jacket. Not that I let him wear that jacket. Or those shirts. But still.

The really cool thing is that Tom looked in my closet and realized that when I say I have nothing to wear, it is the sad, sorry truth. This is due in large part to the fact that I bagged up every item that I hate, never wear or is too big or too small. They are now at Goodwill. And my closet? She is bare.

I'm going shopping next week with Tom's blessing and some cold, hard cash. So that worked out pretty well for me.

You know what else worked out for me? Using my trusty glue gun to hem my pants for my interview. I told Sister Big that if our mother was dead she would turn over in her grave if she saw me doing such a thing. I guess I was wrong though, because I confessed and my mom just laughed and asked why I didn't use seamstress tape instead. I didn't know there was such a thing.

And the interview Monday? Was phenomenal. Thank you for you prayers and thoughts. I will know more next week. This week? It's gonna be a long one. (And the question marks in this post? They are abundant.)

I like the ideas on hemming - glue gun or tape - that's the way I'd do it :) (works for me too)

Kudos on the hubby for the "go" on your shopping.

And will say a prayer on your job interview result. Glad to hear it went well (I'm late in reading about it.)

I have got to do some major purging in my closet. Its been on my to do list for awhile now.

What a lucky gal you are. You get to have the straight guy with the queer eye! :0) Best of both worlds right? :0)

I need to go through my closet too. I worry that once I get rid of the stuff it will be empty. :0( And trust me....shopping with my two year old is worse than having a closet full of clothes I don't wear. :0)

The hem on my pants came undone the other day and I tripped over it and fell flat on my face in the parking lot at work, so I tried to fix them with Super Glue. It didn't work, and now I have to get rid of the pants, because I have a big super glue line running across the bottom. If only I would have had a glue gun....

Beck said...

I did the same thing - got rid of everything I hate and now, I am naked. i have to shop.

Sandy C. said...

Wow!!! That's wonderful he's giving you such great advice. If I ask my hubby anything fashion related, he just stares at me blankly. This is the same guy who wore a black shirt with brown shoes after all! :)

Glue gun for a hem? Great idea!

Congrats on the interview! I used to work in a theatrical costume shop, and we used the old glue gun for hems All. The. Time. ;-)

Sister Honey Bunch said...

Rachie! Oh that sucks! How embarrassing. Get to a craft store and buy the gun

sister, My big gorilla husband dresses me too. Actually all of us if we are going out as a family. How do we not know what to wear? For me it's a mixture of not wanting to be noticed, or if I might be noticed..do I look like a lard ass. Anyway..I'm thankful Big T cares.

In a moment of desperation, sweat beading on brow, and faced with insurmountable obstacles she. reached. for. her. glue gun. Fantastic! Good luck some more.

Hey Sis,

No glue gun for me (burned myself once), can't sew, can't mend. Basically, I'm domestically challenged. That's why I blog. I can't do much else!

Tom rocks HARD! He once got me out of the ditch at like 10:00pm and for him thats like two hours past his bed time.
But seriously, he's the only GUY I know that can change his own brake pads, fix broken water pipes, build you a custom made bookcase, cook an awesome steak and sides, and tell you what to wear. And he gives the best advise!
