Do your spouse and children comment on what you wear?

The other day, after shopping with my sisters, I bought a t-shirt and trousers which I thought fit me. I normally don’t do very much shopping for myself so it was a bit of an impulse buy. My sisters and I agree that we are bad influence for each other. Each time we go shopping together we are bound to compliment each other “Hey! You look really nice in that!” etc which is a definite inducement to buy!

The next day, after wearing my new outfit, here are the comments I received from my family.

Mr MG: What are you wearing!? How come not wearing my favourite pants?

My Girl: Mummy, you look like an elephant.

MG: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So ladies, does your family comment and influence what you wear? Men, do you comment on what your wife wears?

Psssst. I don’t think I really looked like an elephant in it, a small hippo maybe. She just came back from the zoo with her daddy thats why! Hahaha.

    I don’t usually comment on what my wife wears, except when she asks me for advice (yes, she does!) on which outfit would look nicer with which bag, or whether her shoes match her skirt, that kind of stuff.

    Once in a while, when she doesn’t ask for your advice and you think she looks nice, say so loh. It’ll make her day.

    My girl is my most honest critic. She takes one look and says, “MUM!!” and I put the dang thing back into its rack.

    Hahaha. Well, its still nice to have your daughter as your personal fashion consultant don’t you think?

    Congrats on the new blog. Good luck in your quest to earn $$$$. I’m also working on it. Keh keh keh.

    Back to your question, so far my kids only comment when they see something nice. You knowlah, around the house we don’t play dress up very often. So when they see a change from the drappy clothes, it’s like WAH!

    Good luck to you too! We support each other ok?

    Hubby’s okay in this area. Even helps me out with selecting my clothes for me. He ah…. more hiao than i am. His clothes fill so many wardrobes that i sked to buy liao. No more space to put them. Time to move house, lol.

    Good wut like dat. He hiao. So when you hiao dat time, buy clothes, he can’t complaint mah.

    Both husband and son do a lot of commenting. Just the other day before a party I wore a blouse and jeans that I thought looked good. First thing hubby said when he saw me was “Look like you are pregnant, tummy so big”, I got upset, went upstairs, changed into his oversized plaid shirt and pulled on a pair of track pants (look like hip hop artist now but at least tummy not showing)

    Aiyooo. I can’t imagine you looking like hip hop artiste.

  9. Shoppingmum says:

    I wish hubby could pay attention to what I wear! But he rarely cares. However, my MIL is very conservative, keeps saying why the clothes are made of lesser clothing these days, LOL!

    She may be right you know. Made of lesser clothing but costs more!

    MG, elephant, hippo, whatever! I pay, I like….enuf lah. The thing with me, is most of my shopping is done with my daughter’s and husband’s company. Husband’s comments get thrown out of the window 100% because he has no fashion sense. Daughter’s comments accepted 100% cause mother and daughter alike lor. I even told my daughter that if I sudah mati, she is to choose my dress and not let my husband choose it otherwise if ppl see my dead body in the dress my husband choose, they will sure pengsan or also mati from shock! Hahaha.

    Muahahaha. Wise move, asking your dotter to dress you up.

  12. dragonmummy says:

    My girl will always gives her comments as: Mommy, so fat! *double duh*

  15. working mom says:

    my husband usually doesn’t comment on my clothing but once he was saying, “honey, why are you wearing that?” and before i could answer my daughter said “let la mummy wear what she wants” my lil hero, or rather heroin, guess she’ll back me even if i’m wearing a sack πŸ™‚

    Daughters are a mother’s best friends!
