A disagreement of fashion

Hello All!

So most of you know that I moved down to Melbourne at Christmas to live with my partner. Well, we've had a bit of a clash - supposedly he doesn't like me wearing my jodhpurs down to the shops. Now, I understand that with my formerly white pair, which are now grey with old mud splotches, and about 4 sizes too big, so they look like unhealthy elephant skin. But my other ones are practically stretch jeans with knee patches and are in fairly good nick! He's a horsey person, he should understand this stuff LOL.

I have pointed out time and time again that they are comfortable, warm, hard-wearing and easy to unbutton when I go to the loo. And that American Apparel have jodhpur style pants in weird colours and call them fashion. But to no avail. Jodhpurs are in his book a fashion no-no.

Give me some weapons for my argument, HF people! Otherwise I might just have to grab the frying pan

EHOD

Lol I work retail management and have to stay current with my fashions as a job requirement. Jodhpurs are most definetly in style. Wear them with some cute boots, a fashionable blazer, and a cute ruffled top. It's totally in style. I wear my tall boots with leggings sometimes, as well, and always get compliments. The Equestrian look is huge right now. It's just an added perk when you are a rider and already have these items in your wardrobe. :)

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

You must look hot in your jods - he's secretly protecting his investment under the guise of being fashion forward

Thanks, I'll take that as professional endorsement, Bagheera!

As long as you don't tell him what he can wear, when and where, then he can't dictate to you either.

OTOH, just be glad he cares. MDH doesn't say anything.

He is wrong.. soooo wrong!

Everyone LOVES the breeches/jodipur look. Plus how can you resist the ease of going from shop to barn and barn to shop with just one outfit?

It's ingenius!

It cuts laundry in HALF!

Fall Fashion - Equestrian Trends - Romantic Looks - Cosmopolitan

If a look finds it's way into Cosmo, it's definetly fashionable. Lol :)

And it means that "buying clothes" involves going to the tack store!

Although, his complaining did mean that I could go off and splash out on some new non-horsey outfits without feeling in the least bit guilty (I was doing it for him after all ).

At least he's got me brushing my teeth again - I gave up on that one for a while. I'm a bit absent-minded, things like eating and sleeping and basic hygiene end up being forgotten about while I try and solve the world's problems, write novels and invent cool spaceships. So he has to remind me.

But next time he wears a scruffy hat out I'll tell him

I am now married to a tolerant man who lets me do as I please.

However when I was dating, if someone told me what not to do, you bet your mortgage payment I would do it more.

I don't appreciate being told what to do without very good reason. If I were you, I'd wear them to work functions, holidays, weddings etc.
