Day 17: Your addiction
I’ve written before about my accessory problem, but it doesn’t stop there. I love to shop.
More specifically, I love to shop for things on clearance. I am addicted to the thrill of finding something beautiful and useful at a great price.
If you look closely at the box behind them, you’ll see they were $89 originally. I got them for $22. The photo doesn’t do them justice. They are a gorgeous rosy gold and they are so comfortable. I’ve been on the hunt for a cute and comfy espadrille since last summer. Score!
I’m one of those people. I shop for Christmas presents year-round and keep them in totes in the basement. When my mom needs a black cardigan or my sister is on the hunt for a pair of skinny jeans, they call me. I love searching for specific things and then finding them at a ridiculously low price. The feeling of satisfaction is indescribable.
If I could figure out how to be a personal shopper, I would do it in a heartbeat. There is something so joyful about buying something that someone really needs and saving them money. I can’t explain it more eloquently than that. It is such a thrill to do it for my family. I get to shop, which makes me happy. My family and friends get to save money, which makes them happy. Everyone wins!
Someday. Add it to the “what I want to be when I grow up” list, behind shoe maker (why are there no adorable shoes for people with messed up feet?!), plus-size clothes designer (because cuteness should not be reserved for skinny girls!), and photographer.
