I feel the need to add that this is not about recklessness, overspending, conspicuous consumption, etc. This is just a fun post about shopping prefs.
Some of the other bees and I had mentioned on a thread how our clothes, shoes and bags are fairly simple, and/or we hated shopping. Hi, BKrocks13 🙂
As for me, my clothes are extremely simple-yoga pants, palazzo pants, long skirts/dresses, in mostly solid dark colours. I am just not that into clothes. I HATE clothes shopping. I got bigger after having our 19mo old daughter, and it is a complete nightmare. Even when I was smaller, my wardrobe was not that different. I see clothes as so temporary, I hate spending money on them.
I have to shop for shoes like a man, and get one good pair that fits, and can be worn most anywhere, and wear them until I cannot anymore, 99.9% of the time in black cos I just do not wear brown, or any variation therof in anything but gemstones. One pair of slip-on sandals in the summer(I love kitten heels!), too.
Bras are very hard to find for me, so I get one light, and one dark, and wear them until I cannot anymore. Also, most makers seem to think if you have a bigger chest, you either want to bind them up, or want zero lift in a bra.
I like handbags, but any bag but my DH hates any bag larger than about 6 or 7 inches, as his ex carried pack-horse type bags. So I get a decent bag like Coach at TK Maxx, and carry it until it tears up, too.
I don’t care to shop for household things/decor, as my DH is a bit older than I am, and had most everything already. He is quite minimalist, and the house is his domain, kitchen, too, by his choice. I have a ‘me’ room, and my daughter has her room, the rest is his, although they are common areas. I also admit I hate the kitchen, lol; It is not a room you want to be in charge of when you are on a slimming regime. My DH is natrually thin, and loves to cook/bake. Also, food shopping is torture to be gotten over with fast for me, haha.
The back garden is DH’s by choice, too. I do take care of the flowers out front, though.
The one thing I do like to shop for, for myself, is jewellery. Not just the real stuff(that is occasionally), but costume/fun things, too. I love bangles and fun RHRs, necklaces, and make some of my own jewellery, too. I love the jewellery areas of craft shops.
I love to shop for stuff for our little girl, too. I’d get her a little something everyday if I could, lol. So many cute clothes and toys!
I’d buy stuff for my DH, but he hates gifts, and prefers to choose his own things.
How do you feel about shopping?
