Rachel and Mike met at a pretentious art-rock university in the Midwest when they were both 21. They moved to New York after graduating (Rachel two years later, due to a post-college year abroad), went to grad school upstate, and are now living a cross-country relationship (New York-Seattle) that's nine years old. In this discussion Rachel reveals how she saved Mike from a life of fashion tragedy.
Mike: So! Let's talk about CLOTHES. I wrote a piece where I gave strategies for getting boys to dress nicer. And really it was just what you did with me, yes?
