OP here. I didn't create an account because I didn't think this would get posted. Thanks for making my day! I just wanted to clarify some things, especially about the olive oil and vinegar gift set. The father is Italian and appreciates a good bottle of vinegar and oil, I'm not talking about the regular kinds you can get at the supermarket, but olive oil that is cold pressed and infused with rosemary herbs, the vinegar is infused with dark espresso and they both gushed about it. Now, about the soap, it is not "fancy" or thoughtful, it was a square bar of soap (think Dial) in a Ziplock bag, the soap had no wrappings. Had I not notice the foul odor coming from the armpit area of the dress, I would have agreed that the dress probably just absorbed some of the smell from her house, but in this case, I highly doubt it. Also, the dress tag was put in through a thread loop, not through the fabrics, and the tag was already yellowed with stains. The Coach leather bag itself had a strong leather smell, but what I smelled was something resembling sweaty feet, the purse had dried white stains on it and parts of the leather was scratched up. Needless to say, you won't see me wearing any of those things on New Years Eve. Happy Holidays everyone!

Anything covered in sequins I automatically regard as completely unusable in any way, those things feel creepy.
#5 Why do they deserve it? One you don't know them. I know I would enjoy getting and oil and vinegar set, especially if it's a good quality one. But either way OP at least thought about what to get and gave them something bought for them, when it seems like the return gift was just scrounged up at last minute.
That is disgusting she would give you used clothes and a nasty smelling purse. Burn said items when you get home. And tell her you already have a nicer outfit picked up for the party. BTW, your dad has poor taste in girlfriends.
Today, I gave my boyfriend's daughter a luxury bar of soap, a Coach purse, and a brand new dress to wear to our New Years Eve party. She acted like it was cruel and unusual punishment, mainly because she thinks her dad and I don't belong together. Which may explain the oil and vinegar she got us.
New leather Coach bags can have a smell, and sometimes it's not pleasant. It's from the leather and goes away quickly. Its common with lots of leather goods. The dress could just smell like her because, I don't know, it was at her house? As for the soap, maybe it was a nice bar of goat's milk or bee's wax soap? She may have really tried to find gifts OP would have liked...
