The other week I made what I considered a seriously good buy – possibly even my best purchase of the year.
It was a black and ivory oriental-inspired silk bomber jacket from H&M reduced in a one day sale from almost $70 to less than 15 bucks. There was just one left on the rack and I snatched it faster to my chest than the last Monte Carlo in a family pack of cream biscuits.
Obviously I wore it that very same night, filled with that shiny-new-purchase-that-essentially-SAVED-me-money glee.
It was soon clear my partner did not share my sentiments. "Uh, WHAT is that?" he said, gesturing to my jacket approximately three seconds after I had taken off my coat.
It's a reaction that's not only obviously completely and utterly wrong (it's #fashun, get with it dude) but one most women have experienced.
Fortunately Podcast Director Monique Bowley's recommendation on this week's episode of Mamamia Out Loud is the perfect response - #ClothesMyHusbandHates.
The tongue-in-chic hashtag has been used hundreds of time on Instagram by women to show off the clothes of items they love, but their partner doesn't.
I'm sure my husband - and #scooter lurking in the background! - are sick of seeing me wear this #pompom #coat since I got it last month, but I don't care! How could you not be in the best mood wearing this?! Love it. #JoanneHynesXdunnes masterpiece! #joannehynes #designer #irishdesigner #collaboration #dunnesstores #fashion #canttakeitoff #love #clothesmyhusbandhates #saturday #weekend #dublin
