Style 101 from the B.F.

Monday, April 14, 2008
I love when my boyfriend tries to critique my fashion sense. Really. It’s quite humorous.

Like today for example, I passed him in the hallway and he looks at me and says, "That’s an interesting shirt."
Me: Thanks, I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it.
Him: Smirking, Good or uh.... bad?
Me: Good. Why do you say it like that?
Him: It’s kind of um, hippy-flower-girl-ish. Don't you think?

Editor’s note: It’s a bright blue silk, three quarter-length sleeve shirt with a button front. In retrospect, I totally should’ve bought a skinny belt to go with it to make it look better. Not really hippish.

This all coming from the kid who still wears t-shirts over a long sleeved thermal shirt. Really? How are you about to call me out when you are still living in American Eagle’s glory days?

And, I'm not one of those girls who tries to change his dress. He actually does dress pretty well with a little help from me buying him Express shirts and jeans for any holiday I can legitimately buy him presents for.

Although, now that I think about it, dressing your B.F./G.F. makes for a whole other post about being a "kept man." Do you know of any?

Whoa whoa whoa - lets not start talking trash on the t-shirt over thermal look. I have to side with the B.F. on this one.
