Hi! My name is…and I am a Shopaholic!!!

Aviary Photo_130712803099340412The Webster dictionary defines a shopaholic as one who is extremely or excessively fond of shopping.  And I must confess, that’s me!

images (25)I love love love clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry…etc; etc;  There is not one thing about shopping that I do not love, except maybe the long lines.  That is why I usually shop online and also because I will find unique clothing that thousands of women will not be wearing.  I don’t have a twin.  Therefore I do not need to walk around having another woman wearing the same outfit I have on.

When I go to the mall, my goal is to window shop, especially now that I work from home.  But once I get into that mall, all logic goes out the window.  Something tells me that I must have that blouse because I don’t have that particular style and if I do have that style, I don’t have that color.  “And girl that color will look good on you!”.  And of course if I really love the clothing, I must get it in every color.

images (26)Why is it everytime we have an event to attend or just going out on a date or with friends, we can never find anything in our closets to wear?  I am so guilty of that.  I swear I try on so many outfits from my closet and more than 50% of the time I am going to the mall or if I have time, I am going online to order a fabulous new outfit.  Do we just do that as an excuse to shop? And forget it… vacation time.  If I am going on vacation, that calls for a few new pieces… because the new pieces already hanging in my closet just will not make the cut for that island getaway.  And please tell me I am not weird because I cannot wear the same swimsuit twice.  I don’t know what it is about swimsuits, but if I wear it on a vacation, I will never wear it again.

For example:  if I am going on a four day vacation and I know I will go to the beach all four days, I will buy four swimsuits.  I will wear one each day and after that, I will never wear those swimsuits again.  Does that make me weird?  Is that a classic shopaholic move?

images (23)I will say that although I am a shopaholic, I am not one of those people that will spend my last dollar to buy that perfect outfit or that fabulous pair of shoes.  I ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF MY BILLS ARE TAKEN CARE OF AND THAT I HAVE A LOVELY NEST EGG SET ASIDE… there isn’t anything cute about being in a fabulous outfit and being broke!  You need to make sure you have funds in that designer purse…

Just a little FYI, not an excuse to justify my shopping addiction, but I must say that at least twice a year I donate my clothes and accessories to the Lupus Foundation and to people less fortunate then myself.

As always, thanks for reading.  Have a beautiful night and I will talk to you soon 💋
