Dressed to Undress

I had the great fortune of going back to school shopping for my husband, a science educator. I could not believe how much I loved it. On my own at J Crew, I wasn't the slightest bit interested in the women's section, as I collected outfit upon outfit until I made him look as close to these guys as possible. J Crew male models get it right. Rugged yet somehow polished, either in their studious gazes, or perfect haircuts. Visions of men we want to spend our afternoons with, wonder about, but not necessarily be married to. After all, wouldn't that just change our entire viewing and shopping experience? This made me think about what my husband would dress me in, and why. Somehow, I don't think he'd get it quite as right.
