Gifts

Have you ever gotten a gift that you never would have picked out yourself? It can be a good or a bad thing. In many cases, when I get clothes it's a good thing. I never would have purchased this top for myself, but I really like it and it's fun to wear. It's always fun and interesting for me to see what others pick out for me. It helps me get out of my comfort zone and try new things. Of course, sometimes it a sequined holiday sweater that goes straight to the donation pile!

Any good or bad clothing gifts you've gotten?

  1. I agree, my boyfriend likes to buy me clothes for birthday/Christmas and it's usually things I wouldn't have bought myself but really like anyway!

  2. It is beautiful! It's nice to have that happen. I find it with books too. My boy often buys ones I would never pick and it makes me look at different things which is always great. You look fabulous.

  3. Before I even read your post, I was admiring the stunning blouse - all that lace. Once again you are wearing B+W like you said you are on a kick lately. That Necklace is Beautiful.


    Since I am a shopaholic & mostly shop on my own, most people don't buy me clothes - jewelry & accessories like purses, yes. The clothes & jewelry I have gotten has been all nice though.


    You enjoy your weekend with Husband & baby Claire. =)

  4. I'm actually pretty lucky and have never been gifted a piece of clothing that I hated! Probably because people don't buy me clothes! ;)

  5. Most people aren't brave enough to buy me clothes.. and if they do, it's normally something I've told them to get! Love that top though, so fun!

  6. Not many people buy my clothes, but it's always interesting when they do! I either love it or hate it.

  7. My mom stopped so long ago! Sometimes my sister in law gets me clothes though. She always finds fun things! My husband only buys me clothes when he knows exactly what to get.

  8. Thanks Ada! I get so much wear out of that necklace, it was a great investment! Typically I just end up getting stuff for the house as gifts, so I kind of like it when I get clothes and accessories because they are actually for me! Hope you had a great weekend, too!

  9. That's another good one! I love getting books (even recommendations) from other people. It really helps expose you to different genres!
