There's something about shopping that gives me such a good feeling. Whenever I'm sad, depressed, or lonely off to the stores I go. Online shopping is my newest vice too. Don't get me wrong I'm not running up crazy debt or anything, but using my monopoly money (credit cards) has become to common.
I remember high school like it was yesterday. The week before new jordans came out everyone talked about it and started begging their parents for the money to come to school fresh that Monday (mind you fresh was considered the new J's, a white shirt, and matching belt, O how things have changed, if this hasn't changed for you, please hit me up and we can discuss some new options for you). It's so funny how this concept of fresh has transformed as I've grown up, but at the end of the day I think its in search of the same feeling. I shop to find things that make me look good, and therefore make me feel good, even when I'm not feeling so hot.
The compliments you got for your new J's or the new designer bag you bought just do something to brighten my day....call it self-absorbed or materialistic but it's been doing the job. At the end of the day, I know its not the best way to channel my energy, but its gonna have to do the job for now.
On another note, these recession sales have been off the hook.
I got a problem with spending before I get it
we all self conscious I'm just the first to admit it
Just call me "single black female addicted to retail".....that's what she said
