Asking men for style advice

Do you ever ask your guy for outfit advice? Before I lived with Matt, I loved consulting my roommates for their style opinions. You know what I mean: Which necklace looks best with this shirt? Should I wear heels or boots? Do you think I should add a belt to this dress? Yes, it sounds crazy, but there’s nothing better than asking for—and getting!—fashion advice that I can trust.

Fast forward to now. If I ask Matt, I can tell that he wants to be helpful, but he’s not as excited about the fashion decisions as I am. And when I push him to choose between a black dress or a navy dress (a HUGE distinction), he’ll respond: “You look nice in both.”

Sweet? Of course. But where’s the definitive fashion feedback that I crave so much? I think this is just one of those differences between guys and girls. And it makes me totally appreciate FaceTime for the moments when you absolutely need to phone a friend. :)
