Do You Lie to Your Man About Your Beauty/Fashion Spending?
Posted Jan 05 2010 3:00am
Britain’s Daily Mail reports that Marie Claire magazine surveyed 1500 working women aged 20 - 40 on their shopping habits, with 40% admitting they had secretly bought clothes or beauty products which they then kept hidden from their boyfriends or husbands. Marie Claire editor-in-chief Trish Halpin says: ‘While once it was the occasional pair of new heels, now women feel compelled to regularly hide new purchases.’ Apparently 80% of the new clothes, shoes and purses bought, meanwhile, were kept secret.
Now, British women are often surprisingly very different from American women in everything from dress to attitudes to manners (both good and bad). But still…do you think this survey would hold true on this side of the pond, as well? Do any of you hide your own purchases from your man?
