DP doesn't like my current style.
Apparently my haircut looks like "something a child should have," (I have a short fringe - much like a Bettie Page fringe) and my make-up would, "Scare the men away," (he is referring to heavy lashes, bright pink or red lipstick... you know 40s/50s pin-up/rockabilly style). This was in response to me saying he just hated it cos I looked hotter now and all the men would want me... being a bit silly really, but I didn't expect that. It p*ssed me off, yes.
He doesn't mind some of the clothes, it's more the accessories and such... he thinks it's stupid to dress like you're in the past "BECAUSE IT'S NOT THE FOURTIES ANYMORE!" apparently. As I asked him, is it better to dress like I'm from the 40s, or the 80s, because right now, most shops tend to stock 80s-inspired hideousness.
I have told him though, that as I'm not dressing to impress him, but rather because it's a style I like, I will continue to dress as I please.
If he ever commented on my weight other than to say I looked like I'd lost some (or if I give him permission to say I'm a bit heavy, by starting a conversation about it myself) then I'd be shirty and probably go have a sulk/cry.

I don't know... Personally, I'd like DH to let me know if he wasn't into my new look... I think I'd change it to a certain degree. There would be a lot of compromising! That's for sure. He'd have to tell me kindly though. If he were to say "you're ugly or that dress makes you look fat" I'd smack him with a studded baseball bat.

It's funny because DH will always tell me I'm beautiful and is genuinely attracted to me. However I tell DH if I don't like something about his appearance, like clothes, and I have even commented on his weight.

If I asked for an opinion then yes I would be totally ok with his response, be it good or bad. If he coughed up something negative on his own, I think I would be upset and depending what it was, either take it on board or give him a mouth full!!!! lol

I don't really care about his opinion though - it's not like he's an expert on style or fashion, so he doesn't know what actually suits and what doesn't. He's also just totally not into my personal style, and that's his choice. I'd probably wear more than just black and white if I was a guy... but he does what he wants so I will too (he seriously wears black, white and grey... with the very occasional navy shirt around the house... lol).
