Super lame title - what's more lame? I laughed at myself when I typed it. Yeah. I am that idiotic!
While on the H&M shop the BFF and we noticed the big spring trend - Orange! Everything was orange, peach, coral or some combination of those. It was everywhere.
The BFF looks great in peachy/orange tones. I remarked that while I generally don't ask my man for fashion advice he didn't like me to wear orange. He doesn't give a flying squirrel most the time about what I wear but since his only complaint ever was about the colour orange I don't own anything orange. The BFF gave me a look that said, "What????" It's not unusual for people to think that hubby never gets an opinion as I am loud - but don't fear - he tells me his opinion on a regular basis, and once 15 years ago he frowned upon orange. He also once pointed out back fat...not that I remind him of that on a regular basis or anything.
There was a really cute orange sweater though. I announced with bravado - I am going to try this sweater on. It is cute, and will make me look great. I could sense the greatness this orange sweater was going to bring me. Who cares if hubs hates me in orange - what could he possibly know??
I pulled on the sweater and went to the mirror. The BFF gave me a "Ugh" look. Darn it! The colour looked awful on me. My complexion looked gray and sallow. It was U-G-L-Y. Bugger. The BFF kindly told me that the sweater while great in shape looked hideous in that colour - at least on me. All this time I thought hubs had an issue with the colour orange - turns out he noticed I looked like death when I wore it. Apparently he does know something about fashion.
