The blazer I am sporting today was picked out by my husband for me. It was a mere $10 after discounts and coupons at Kohl's which I am discovering occasionally has some pretty great stuff. While we don't do much shopping at Kohl's, about once a month we do get a $10 coupon in the mail with no minimum purchase. This has inspired a game where we try to buy one thing for about that price so we essentially get something for free. I usually get a pair of tights from their Vera Wang line (which are great and also made in the U.S.A) or maybe a kitchen utensil for the home. This time my husband somehow found this jacket in the clearance rack from Chaps which was marked down to $25 (from $129), then an extra 15% off, then our $10 coupon. What a bargain and a find on behalf of my husband!
Now what's going on in the bottom is all me, and probably not so much to the aesthetic tastes of my husband, but that's why this outfit is a great compromise. I paired the jacket with these zip up corduroy pants and some leopard smoking slippers. My husband said I looked like a woman going to her country estate wearing shoes made out of a leopard she killed on safari. I always love hearing his commentary on my wardrobe at 6:00 in the morning as I am getting dressed!
So what, if anything, does your significant other pick out for you? Does he have a good eye for things in the clothing, shoe and accessories department or are those selections better left up to you?
