My husband and I could not be more opposite. We agree on religion and our kids and that is about it. Even after seven years of marriage, I still manage to be surprised at the things that we disagree on or just see differently. This morning, I was trying to explain to him about how early I had picked up on some trending colors this year and while I was looking for validation, he took it in a totally opposite direction. Somehow he ended up trying to analyze how and why colors can be on trend or cool now and not next year. How do things become “in style” anyway? Because the question isn’t really answerable, his logical brain just got frustrated and made me even more frustrated as he “invalidated” my hobby entirely. Anyway, as surprised as I was by his reaction, I just had to try and see things from his perspective and not take it personally. It might have taken me all morning to see it that way.
This dress is yet another example of my vision and his not aligning. I thrifted this dress a few years ago to refashion and wear to his holiday work party. That did not go over well. You can see the original here. Although not perfect, I loved how it turned out after. He basically hated it. Not surprising. I’ve found that although it means green light to me, vintage is not a positive word for most men. I ended up wearing something else to the party, but every once and a while I pull this one out just for me.
Do you and your man agree on fashion? How do you deal with it when he hates what you love???
