Okay – so I’ve certainly never kept it a secret that I love, love, love shopping. Not much in this world makes me happier than the prospect of an afternoon spent at one of my favourite malls…and I say that without a drop of irony.
But what might be a bit of a surprise?? While I rarely admit it, I do sometimes feel guilty that the pursuit of my next sartorial conquest makes up such a big part of my life. I’ve never been motivated by the endorphin rush of a workout, and I’ll have a drink maybe a couple of times a year…but that so-called “shopper’s buzz” is a very real thing for this girl!!
By any definition, I probably have a bit of a problem…an “addiction,” if you will. I don’t really need another pair of shoes (aren’t these new Sorel booties casual-outfit-catnip, by the way?) or skinny jeans (yes, my love has officially been re-kindled!) but it’s just sooo satisfying to add yet another wardrobe wonder – or three! – to my walk-in closet!! Plus – my one and only credit card?? It gets paid off every month.
So I’m asking you, dear readers – is it bad that I crave shopping the way some people crave cigarettes?? Are you just as obsessed with seeking out your next outfit acquisition as I am?? I await on those proverbial pins and needles for your response!! 😉
