Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 264
Since it was considered quite expensive, no one would actually buy them. Even if the cadre had some money, the wives of the families would refuse this particular color. A grown woman wearing clothing that sported this color was not taken that positively and a man would have to spend money on such an item, so who would even consider buying something like that?
Only fools would buy such an item!
Lin Lan glanced at said fool who was eating. The same fool gave her a gentle look, “Try it on and see.”
Han Qingsong naturally couldn’t think about other people’s opinions or concerns. He only thought that the scarves were currently in season, so he bought one for his wife and daughter.
Although one of the two was slightly more expensive, he knew that his wife would definitely look good in it.
The salesperson also said that women liked this type the most.
Of course, he didn’t know why Qiu Dongmei tried so hard to recommend this product to him. It was because there were quite a few of the scarves in the Supply and Marketing Cooperative that couldn’t be sold off, so it had to come with a discounted offer.
It used to cost 3 Yuan per piece, but it only cost Han Qingsong 2.5 Yuan afterwards.
After Han Qingsong bought it, Qiu Dongmei and the others were still gossiping, “I didn’t expect the new Director to enjoy this colour or anything alike.”
“Who knows if his wife can actually pull off such a colour, haha.”
Although Lin Lan had bought things with the household registration at the beginning, no one except the old Director paid much attention to her.
In their opinion, if a woman from the countryside went to work wearing such a tender looking scarf but still ending up getting tanned by the sun, then there was practically no use to it.
In fact, Lin Lan’s skin was fair. Although the original owner did not take care of it and it was slightly rough before, Lin Lan habitually paid attention to her skin after transmigrating. Now, her skin had become fair and soft again.
To be at the level of the Village Flower(1), not only must one be beautiful, but naturally, they must also seem soft and tender. After all, it was God who granted their beauty and good figure.
(T/N: Refers to the prettiest woman in the village, usually unanimously agreed by the entire village.)
Though, women would always not be satisfied with themselves. Although Lin Lan’s skin was fair and delicate compared to the other women, it was in a terrible condition now when she remembered the supple, healthy skin of hers in her previous life.
Lin Lan was not confident at all. But since she was already living in the countryside, she decided not to dwell too long on those useless thoughts.
Faced with such a colour at the moment, she was really powerless.
However, if her husband was the one who gave it to her, she still had to act as if she was elated, so as not to break his heart and hurt his enthusiasm. It wouldn’t do her good if he decided not to give her any other presents henceforth.
She gathered the scarf around her neck and smiled at Han Qingsong, “It looks… good.”
Han Qingsong’s eyes were full of surprise and he nodded without hesitation, “Yes, it does look really nice!”
Lin Lan, “I think it’s better for Maisui to wear it; the little girl looks good in any color.”
Han Qingsong, “Doesn’t she have the red one?”
Children were usually dressed in red and green when it came to festive and celebratory colors.
Lin Lan said again, “Is there any other color? Something that’s not so eye-catching, maybe— can we change it?”
Han Qingsong remembered that the salesperson kindly told him that he could not exchange it, so he shook his head, “The Supply and Marketing Cooperative will not allow any sort of returns.”
