Oh Lord. We all have that friend, the one who just doesn’t have very good taste. Her favorite skirt that is just way too short or she doesn’t seem to get that a curly she-mullet isn’t quite the follicular rage it once was. Maybe her perfume –Eau de Headshop– breaks you out in hives. But how do you say anything?
Francesca and Plumcake want to know “how do you (or DO you) broach delicate sartorial subjects with a friend?”
I can tell you personally I was once gently pulled aside and told that whatever perfume I was wearing made me “smell like barn.” It was my new decant of Chanel’s Cuir de Russie and although I loved the scent for its complexity, I had to admit that she probablyhad a point.
