DH got me: a poncho with one arm!

It's honestly the most bizarre looking thing.

A poncho with one long arm sticking out!

And it's a black and white chevron pattern - with a big band of wierd waviness through the middle. Just.....odd.

He was so pleased bless him!

"I just thought it was so cool! One arm! You don't ever see that!"
"It'll be brilliant for breastfeeding when we visit my family next week"

Oh god he's put so much thought into it! He's so sweet. I looked at his little face and I hadn't the heart....I told him it was amazing and the coolest thing I had ever seen.

And it's super heavy wool and feels frighteningly expensive. Oh god, I think he spent a bomb on a one armed black and white poncho!

I'm going to have to wear it for the rest of my life, aren't I? blush

WE can't really pass proper judgement without a photo

I googled the brand. It's this one except black and white. Makes me look MUCH WIDER.

Wish I hadn't googled cos it's costs loads. He said it was in sale (shocker) but still it must have cost a fair bit. Oh god. The guilt.

I like it.

I think you are going to have to tell him you don't like and see if you can return it
Otherwise you will be doomed for a lifetime of one armed weirdness
You also need to set some ground rules. He must never buy you clothes ever again

I really like it smile

AndShesGone Sun 25-Dec-16 08:03:26

I also like it. On the 7 stone woman. On me I'd look like I was a homeless woman wearing a carpet.

I love it, possibly enough to buy one fgrin.

It sounds funnier than it is.

MoodyOne Sun 25-Dec-16 08:08:48

I have three tops like it ... would love it in a poncho 😳

sarahnova69 Sun 25-Dec-16 08:13:48

I think it looks lovely. Might get one. Where's it from? fgrin

In all seriousness if it's just not your taste or doesn't suit you you can tell him, but it's not an intrinsically insane or hideous garment.

I think it could look amazing. Style it out.

Sparkletastic Sun 25-Dec-16 08:21:01

I like it too

Idrinkandiknowstuff Sun 25-Dec-16 08:22:00

Actually that's quite nice.

Idrinkandiknowstuff Sun 25-Dec-16 08:23:40

Get to the style and beauty topic, they'll help you make it look amazing.

At least it's not a dashcam, yes a fucking dashcam angry because they are all the rage he tells me!

Howyoualldoworkme Sun 25-Dec-16 08:26:06

Look at it this way, he thinks you're very fashion conscious and elegant enough to carry it off smile

Sleepysleepysleep Sun 25-Dec-16 08:26:56

Really? You guys like it??

It is the most amazing lambswool, super soft. You could sleep in it. Almost too warm to wear indoors tbh. confused

But it makes me look like my school art teacher!

Heyheyheygoodbye Sun 25-Dec-16 08:27:55

I like it!

ROAR at it being good for breastfeeding. Oh, bless him fgrin

Costacoffeeplease Sun 25-Dec-16 08:28:25

I like it too, maybe not so much in black and white, but he did put a lot of thought into it, I'd style it out

Jinglebells99 Sun 25-Dec-16 08:29:59

Aw your post is funny, but actually I like the poncho. I wish it went up to a size 16 as I might be tempted. Definitely looks nice on the model.

ICJump Sun 25-Dec-16 08:31:03

Yeah I like. I'd see it and want it. I'd try it but I'm 17 stone and I'd look like a circus tent in it.
