Lemmings: The Clutch Edition

This is a bag I wanted to buy while in Sydney. However, I couldn’t justify the price (it’s a “runway” collection) and with it having the hairy-side (is there a term for this?) of leather on it, it would be almost impossible for me to maintain.

This is the easier (and cheaper) version of the bag that I would have bought, had Mr E didn’t have my wallet with him at the time I went to the shop.

Recently, Mr E have mentioned that my taste in things have changed. Not too surprising, as when we first met, I was a 20 year old girl. Now, I’m a 30-something year old mum! Of course, my taste have changed. However, in our 10+ years together, Mr E never said anything I like as “ugly”. That is until I showed him the bag I wanted.

I was insulted.

I mean, sure it’s too small to use as a nappy bag. And the original one I like is slightly kitsch, with the heart patterns and all, but I like heart patterns! But to call it “ugly”? Pffft!!! Needless to say, I’ve crossed it off my list.

I remember once my mum in-law told me that she bought an asymmetrical dress and wore it one day. When dad in-law saw it, he told her that it is the ugliest thing she’s ever bought in the 30+ years of them being together and that she should threw it in the bin. At the time I told her that Mr E hasn’t said anything so strongly like that to me. Well, now he has!

My dear friends, tell me, have you brought anything home to show your partner and he/she absolutely hate it? What did you do? Did you keep or return it?
