The saying is true that most women like to shop. It does not matter if you are shopping for clothing, groceries/household-items/supplies, special occasions/events, it could be for the children and family, and/or pets, we will find a reason to run out to the store and lets not even talk about the holidays, but you get my point, we do shop a lot.
However, women are better prepared shoppers, because we have a list, we have a plan, and we know what deals to look for, and that’s simply because we are always in the habit of shopping in abundance, regardless, there’s something that’s always needed.
And, if you are married, as with most husbands, they see our shopping as splurging and blowing money, creating bills and wasting money, and not as saving money.
And, if you’re like me, you have some key word(s) or catch phrases for justification that normally goes like this, “It was on Sale, honey,” “It was damaged, so I got it on Sale, honey,” or “They had a BOGO Sale, so I didn’t spend anywhere nearly as much on a normal shopping haul/run, honey.” LOL….. You got to do whatever it takes, to keep the pressure and eyes off of you.
Therefore, since I am a frequent and compulsive shopper, I have a large selection of clothing in my closet with tags and in the boxes, still.
Many of my clothing items aren’t worn, which is a good thing, because this always keeps my attire fresh and new looking when it’s time to step out. And, for my clothes that are worn and need cleaning, they are sent to the dry cleaners, to keep the shelf life of the clothes looking newer longer. I truly don’t buy expensive clothing items, most are all purchased $25 and under, but I do shop, regularly, and I’m buying more than one item at a time, so it adds up with each purchase, but still a bargain.
Now, when it comes to my purses and a few others must have items, then I’m spending the higher dollar amount on those, but of course.
Therefore, when it came time to put together my looks for the photo shoot, I was able to come up with my own creations from my signature looks.
I must have my accessories and shades. I don’t feel like myself if I don’t have my shades on. They are truly an extension of me and once they come on, my true personality comes out, even more, if you can believe that.
I assume my shades bring out my alter ego, well I am a Gemini, too…LOL. And, don’t let that hair just get freshly done, you can forget about it.
Nevertheless, when I pick out my outfits, I normally start from the top and work my way down, and then I apply the matching and coordinating accessories, shoes, purse, and so forth, to make the whole assemble suit me. I typically, dress by my mood or how I’m feeling, so I don’t often like to pick out my looks too far in advance, because I might go through a whole metamorphosis and change it all out. Overall, my style is always classy and sexy, and sophisticated and edgy. The looks for the photo shoot were items that I had all in my closet, aside from ordering my T-shirts. My mother assumed that I purchased a few pairs of my shoes because they still had tags on them. I said, “Momma, No.” I’ve been had those items or shoes for years and never wore them. Some items just stack up, until it’s the right and perfect time, to pull them out.
