Make-Over Date

We all have a certain style of attire which is either rebellious/freak, conservative/safe, casual, trendy, senior citizen looking or HS/grunge. As shocking as it may seem - your partner/mate probably would dress you entirely different if only for a day/date especially if you have been dating/courting/married for a while.


Surprise your mate at the end of the month with 'MAKE-OVER DATE' day!

  • Money (don't spend money you don't have)
  • be open minded
  • schedule outside of emotional times of the month (ie. cycle)
  • ability to feel sexy even in ugly garments.

What do you tell your mate: I would like to borrow you on _____day (ie. Saturday) for 4 hrs to go shopping? If they ask for what - say pick up a few things. Include breakfast in the process so no hunger pains.

What happens:
You tell your mate - we are going to buy an entire outfit for each other and wear it out to a date/destination of our choosing. If the outfits are drastically different it may result in two dates #1 dinner and #2 on a different day picnic. You pay for the outfit and your mate pays for the destination. Entire outfit is defined as - all garments excluding shoes/socks. You can incorporate shoes if you want them in heels or dress shoes but they would have to join you while shopping to try it on.
You should fill out a sheet with all sizes/measurements necessary to pick up clothing for you - shirt size, inseam, waist, etc.
Your mate should do the same and fill out all sizes/measurements including bra, undies, blouse, etc.
You should set a budget so it doesn't turn into an argument either for spending too much or too little. E.g. she spends $400 and you spend $53 at the Gap.

You both go on your own journey to buy an entire outfit for the other person that you would like to see them in. Don't buy a librarian a stripper outfit as you probably can't walk into a 5 star restaurant with 4" stelletho but, you can get her a mini skirt, blouse, push-up bra and matching boy shorts undies and ask her to meet you at Cheesecake Factory.

After attire is picked up - you try it on just to verify all sizes work and no ability to return/change any garments. Schedule the date and viola.

End result: It is a cute way to make-over your mate (and yourself) while including your mate in your style. You never know the fashion sense of your mate.

Helpful hints - if money is an object avoid Nordstorm or Bloomingdales and shop at Target, Gap, etc.. Don't buy something they already own or something they like to wear - buy items you would like to see them in but they never wear. At the beginning and end of the date - tell your partner how hot they look and you appreciate them for not only going along with it but being your mate. It doesn't hurt to buy a flower/card with the note, "To My Hot Azz in her _____ underwear" - you should know the underwear if you bought it for them. Avoid getting advice from friends/family instead go on your gut of how your envision your mate looking great.
