Are You Going to Wear That?

Men sometimes think the clothes women wear are just silly...  I learned this firsthand when my boyfriend, now husband (he's lucky he got to stick around after this) told me my shirt looked like curtains.

Curtains?! Was the man crazy? It was an adorable, ruffled sleeveless top that I spent way too much money on for that kind of reaction. Needless to say, those ruffles were forever banished to the back of my closet. Once your shirt is compared to living room drapes, there's no going back.

The only good thing about the convo was that I got to write a story about it for From shoes to shades, read on for fashion essentials girls love, that guys could live without.

Gladiator Sandals
Your gladiators are your go-to summer shoe when you don't feel like wearing heels. Unfortunately, he has to spend all summer desperately trying to block the mental picture of Russell Crowe in a loin cloth.

Muu Muu Dresses
You think they're hippie chic. But if he wanted to visit grandma, he'd go to Boca Raton. (You're just a housecoat and a pair of slippers away from getting dumped.)

Empire Waist Shirts
Your Saturday-night going-out ensemble is a loose, flowy top paired with skinny jeans. He doesn't understand why you're OK with strangers asking when you're due.

Women have a love/hate relationship with Spanx. Men just hate them. Word to the wise, don't attempt putting those suckers on when your man is in the vicinity. Wait until you're married to show him your bag 'o tricks.

Harem Pants
Even you know these are pretty ridiculous-looking. So imagine how mortified your man is that he has to take MC Hammer out for fro-yo.

Ankle Boots
Fashion-forward ladies love this season's little booties. But when you and the girls go out, he can't help but refer to your crew as the Keebler Elves.

What does your guy wish you'd donate to the Salvation Army?
