I wrote before about being a stylist in training for my partner.
And I had my successes and mainly failures. But I learnt lots.
Especially about shoes. I now know good quality from bad. I know what does and doesn’t work fashion wise. And still stumble and fall.
But unwittingly I stumbled on a taboo subject.
Men don’t talk about this. They do talk about shopping with their partner.
And complain. But my response to that was too different.
“I help my partner choose shoes and dresses”.
For some reason, the three men I’m talking to step back slowly, carefully as if I’ve turned radioactive.
