Chaps invited Christine, Aly and me to their showroom and asked us to bring along the men in our life, for a little styling session. It's not often that the men are the fashion focal point, so needless to say, we were on board! Aly brought her friend Nick, Christine brought stand-in boyfriend Landon ("A" was working and unable to attend) and I, of course, brought Bobby.
We took a look at their inspiration boards, had a handsome model demonstrate the fit of everything and then it was time to choose pieces to make and outfit. I was excited to dress Bobby but being that he has a very strong sense of how he likes to dress, he promptly (and politely, because he doesn't know how to be anything but) ditched me and picked out the clothes himself. Smart boy - I would've done the same thing, though I probably wouldn't have been as nice about it (I'm feisty). I relegated myself to the cheese tray and let him do his thing. We were leaving for Florida directly after the event and I had to prepare for my vehicular hibernation. I have priorities.
He has since worn two outfits of his choosing from the Chaps collection, and I must say, he did a nice job. I'll wait to post pictures until he posts on his own blog. I can't wait to see what the other guys (or their respective gals) chose. Which leads to me to the question: do you dress the man in your life, or does he dress himself? I think we all know my answer - though I'm sure a lot of people would be surprised to find out that it's all Bobby!
