It’s no surprise that I love shopping. It’s one of the main features on this blog, and one of the main reasons I started this thing. I wanted to share what I find shopping, how to get great deals on quality clothes, and how I style everything that I find. I have always loved clothes and style, and that’s why I run this blog. It’s an outlet for me to share my passion for style and a way to share my style in the hopes that others will be able to relate and become inspired. It’s also an excuse for me to shop for “work” or “the blog” and honestly that’s the dream.
Some people find that shopping is shallow, or that people (read: girls) that love to shop are shallow and only care about appearances. That’s not entirely true. I love shopping and care about appearances, but I know that it’s not everything. I am a college educated, well-read adult woman who cares about the state of our country as much as the state of my closet. There’s more to life than shopping, but it is a part of my life and I care deeply about it.
Do you remember that scene from Confessions of a Shopaholic where she talks about how she feels when she sees a store? Yeah I feel that, too. The movie puts it in a much more romantic and poetic way, but I feel like that when I go into a store. The world gets a little better and shinier and I can forget my worries and get lost in patterns and fabrics and shoes. I can’t help it, it’s a part of who I am. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to carry around all the pretty shiny bags that the other ladies seemed to have.
Shopping has easily become one of my favorite past times. Whether I’m online shopping at home or out on the streets going from shop to shop, it’s something I love to do and a big part of my life I enjoy very much. I mean I work in retail as my day job, so yeah, I love shopping. There’s nothing better than buying something new and perfect for you and your closet that you can’t wait to get home so you can try it on again.
I know that I am not alone, because otherwise it wouldn’t be a multi billion dollar commodity. See, I can use big, smart words as well as know that there will be a huge sale at Bloomingdale’s this weekend. There isn’t a sale, but I was just making a point. The point is I know things and I love shopping. To be fair there is math involved in shopping, since you have to be able to do sale percentages in your head. But enough of that, shopping can be an amazing experience for those who love it. It sure is for me.
What about you? Do you love or hate it?
