Does your significant other always agree with your fashion choices? Scroll down below to see Olivia's favorite 'controversial' clothes, as well as some of her boyfriend's witty criticisms, for yourself, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

I have something similar and my bf managed to ruin it for me 5 minutes after I put it on myself 1st time. It apparently looks like a tea towel. Now I can’t unsee it.

"My inspiration came from my boyfriend's sarcastic comments about my outfits, but my willingness to wear them anyway, and him still loving me anyway," Olivia told Bored Panda. "I wanted to, and still aim to, empower women to dress for themselves rather for others around them.

Because couples don't always have to agree on everything, it's how you deal with your differences that is key to a long-lasting relationship. Jackson and her boyfriend clearly have a matching sense of humor and don't take themselves too seriously – this really helps!

"Humour definitely plays a big part!" she said. "He probably doesn't appreciate them because he doesn't keep up with women's fashion trends and that I'm partial to a bright colour or something with pom poms on. Luckily, he's now used to me wearing them anyway and not listening so there's not too much negotiation - just an eye roll or sarcastic comment from him usually!"

Our Saturday morning..
 ‘My car doesn’t need fixing Liv’
 ‘I know it doesn’t?’ 
‘Why are you dressed like a mechanic then?’
*glare*
’I’ll bring you coffee’

‘What surgery are you having?’ he asked as I put this on

Why?

Olivia doesn't think that women should care what their partners think about their choice of clothing, but she understands those that do. "If you're not particularly confident about yourself (and we've all been there), your partner's opinion can really affect how you feel about your fashion choices," she continued. "I think your partner should love you for you, not for what you're wearing! 

“My boyfriend actually loves that I’ve found a community of other women whose partners hate their fashion choices too. Despite his sarcastic comments and eye rolls, he still comes out with me wearing a ‘hospital gown’ or ‘mechanics outfit’ and is totally supportive of me wearing what I want and dressing for myself.”

This is the ultimate message of Olivia's page: have the confidence in your own choices, even if cheeky loved ones either don't get it, or just enjoy taking the piss from time to time.

“I started writing my blog in May 2018, shortly after starting my Instagram page. On the whole, the feedback to both has been overwhelmingly supportive. I regularly get messages from women thanking me for inspiring them to be a bit more brave which their fashion choices, which I absolutely love and it reassures me that I'm doing the right thing by sharing. I've met a lovely community of women who are now dressing for themselves which is great!"

I’m not 100% sure what he hates more - it’s reflectiveness, or the fact my mum has the same one and we’ll happily wear them together.

Jack’s working away this week, and when I sent him a photo of this dress he at first said ‘summery’ - when I sent a different angle which showed my trainers he said he hated it.

My boyfriend when I produced this scrunchie from the Wear the Dress day goody bag: ‘Is that a swatch of the fabric? Does it grow into a real dress?’ ‘Nooo, It’s a scrunchie!’ ‘Do you have to dye that too?’

Berni, I'm a 68 yr old married male and if I was young enough, I'd certainly have no problem with her wardrobe. Yes, some are a bit quirky, but that's her. I think the quirkier the better. She's adorable.
