I’ve been feeling like crap for the past few days, across the board.. I don’t know why I just feel like I’m in a little bit of a rut.. So I figured I’d buy myself a few things…
Nastygal is having a 20% off everything sale, so I snagged these babies (I know they’re massively ridiculous, but I don’t care! Haha)
I also grabbed another Esther Williams Bathing suit for our trip to The Dominican in Aug! I never thought I’d LOVE a bathing suit, but this one, is a-maz-ing!
So, do you bee’s indulge in retail therapy? I wanna see what purchases cheered you up lately! =) ..Or it can be something you just bought and love! I wanna see! haha Oh I love shopping!

I’ve been feeling a little unlike myself the past week or so. I bought a dress of gap.com that was on clearance, and then my hubby had a $10 reward I used. It was $16.99 (with shipping) for a dress that was originally $59. (I love a bargain. I rarely pay full price for clothes)
I’m itching to buy a couple of other things before my trip to Portugal at the end of the month, where I’ll meet my Hubby’s extended family….Think I’ll be doing that soon. =)

I sure do! I’m dying for some new sunglasses, that might be my next therapy session!
ETA: I especially love shopping at Nordstrom Rack because the deal is almost as good as the item you get. I just got a pair of black Tory Burch wedges for $70 :-O

I hardly find things I want to buy, so retail therapy is rough for me lol

Nope. It would COMPLETELY backfire for me, for two reasons:
1. Having money in my accounts actually feels better than spending it, to me. It is a warm, secure feeling. Even though we aren’t short on money, I don’t like to spend it when there’s no need to, because the bigger our “buffer,” the better (and also “richer”) I always feel. As soon as the money is spent, it’s gone, I feel poorer. This might just be a personality thing(?)
2. I am very pleased when I make a good purchase, like a gift that’s well-received or the exact right elliptical machine or pair of jeans I need. However, I HATE the feeling that I’ve spent money poorly. If I got the overly-expensive elliptical machine with the functions I don’t use, or the overly cheap jeans that are a tiny bit too short in the leg… I find that stressful and I get all annoyed with myself. Buying anything on a mood-improvement focused whim makes the chances that I spend money poorly VERY likely. So now I feel poorer and less secure (see #1), but also like an idiot and mindless consumer, with more clutter to deal with, as well.
Yeah, as you can see, this would NOT make me feel any better at all. I have my vices, don’t get me wrong, but this isn’t one of them.

@Stephville: Actually, I hate shopping. I literally despise it. If I used retaill therapy, I would need real therapy to recover, lol.

@littlemisst08: I keep hearing about Nordstrom Rack! All these bloggers I follow get the cutest things from there.. I’ve gotta check it out next time I’ in the US..
We’re JUST getting Nordstrom’s here, The first one in my area (Toronto) is supposed to open in late 2014 I think..
My FI is already like “When Nordstrom opens I’m for sure going to get a credit card from them!” LMAO, I’m so glad shopping is a mutual interest of ours lol

Yah… I can go for months without buying a single piece of clothing but then I go on a spree. And buy like 15 new outfits.

Nope! I actually DESPISE shopping. When I am forced to do so, it’s almost always online. Just about everything for the wedding has been purchased online. I haven’t been to a mall in at least 10 years.
It’s not that I don’t like new stuff, I just hate shopping for it!

@MrsPanda99: I hate shopping too… But thats why online shopping was invented haha, I do probably 98% of all my non-food/household shopping online.. Its so great lol

That’s me too. I like to buy things only at ridiculously good deals or things I actually need. I can’t just let go and splurge and something I don’t reallly want. Whenever I used to do that, I’d end up returning it cause I didn’t like the items that much and just wanted my money back.

@Stephville: Love me some Nordstrom Rack. They have “worn and refurbished” items, and I can never tell what was originally wrong with them. That’s how I got my wedges so cheap, and a few months ago I got a Tory purse for $50.
