Mars versus Venus

Shirt // Suits // Wedges // Pumps // Lobster

We've all experienced that moment.  The moment when you point out an adorable top or fun pair of shoes only to illicit an unfavorably strong reaction by your significant other.  I've come to find a few trends are universally not understood nor appreciated by my male counterpart.  Such trends include neon in any hue, shoes with futuristic details and swimsuits that leave tan lines of epic proportions.  I can say this with the utmost confidence as the boyfriend has had an extremely discouraging reaction to them all.  But since he's forever been unsuccessful in his quest to persuade me to part with said clothing in question I don't foresee my not purchasing and wearing it far into the future.

This designer I stumbled upon before the start of swimsuit season and have since seen it explode in popularity.  The use of color-blocking, interesting patterns and of course unique edges made me do a double-take at first which is no easy feat in the world of swimwear.  I still remember showing it to the boyfriend like a kid on Christmas morning.  With excitement I pulled up the website, clicked on the suit I loved and turned to him with a hopeful and earnest face.  He glanced briefly, gave me that look (you know that look) and proceeded to point out the most egregious tan lines it would produce.  But I was too far gone, six presents deep with wrapping paper piling up around me and an errant bow stuck in my hair gleefully clapping my hands in delight over the the color-blocking, the flamingos, the zigzags!
What does he know anyway?  He is a man.  The only swimsuit decision he has to make are whether or not his board shorts should tie or velcro.

While there may be certain pieces of women's wardrobe men will never understand, if you find someone that tolerates it I'd say hold on and don't let him go.  Besides, one day this swimsuit will be mine and then I'll really show him.

P.S. You don't even want to know the response I got for the neon lobster iphone case...
