I'm going to be honest, if there's one thing I'm very good at, it's spending lavish amounts of money that I don't have on clothes. Every time the weekend rolls round, and I'm finding myself bored with little to nothing to do, I get that shopping itch.
Now, some people view shopping as a casual thing, something to help them relax; I take it a bit more seriously. Shopping is my hobby. Out come the fashion magazines, and I scroll through them, highlighting things that have caught my eye, and leaving little comments such as "Try a jumpsuit" (disaster, honestly, who suits those?) or "quilted shoes=awesome-go to primark for a pair!" And with my annotations done, I compose a little shopping list, plus one of "styles to try" and off I go.
Honestly, the happiness I get from shopping is ridiculous. All my money is spent on is going out, clothes and a little on food (rent too, but that gets withdrawn automatically so I don't count it). I look at what I'm spending money on and think "I wish I could do this for my whole life" but girls, we all need to grow up eventually.
If I'm honest, my dream career would be a personal clothes shopper, picking out what suits someone, letting them try on the things I've chosen and feeling pleased when they buy them. *sigh*, unfortunately there isn't a huge demand for personal clothes shoppers, so until the world becomes more populated with rich, fashionably inept people, my dream career is on hiatus, and I have to cut down on the shopping (my wardrobe's getting cranky).
So here is a question; what am I going to do when I grow up? I certainly don't know.
