I think I have found the one bad thing about shopping: being a guilty shopper. If you consider yourself a style addict or a shopaholic, this problem just about doubles. I experienced that heart-wrenching feeling far too many times, when I find the perfect piece of clothing, only to look at the price tag and have to sit down because my legs turn to Jell-O. And sometimes the feeling gets worse. If I love the item to the point where, even after a painful glance at the price, I still want it, then I am in trouble.
Conventionally, after that point, I start to talk myself into buying it, thinking of all of the pros about the piece. And so I begin to reason: the piece of clothing is of fabulous quality; fits me just right; I will wear it so much that the cost-per-wear will be extremely low; it will be “in” all the time; it already goes with accessories and other articles of other clothing I have; and I do not have anything like it. Oh my gosh, this is an once-in-a-lifetime chance.
Then I have to stop myself. Wait a minute. I just made a list of good qualities this piece of clothing has that make me want to buy it, so how about I check this list out and make sure all of this blabbering actually makes sense.
