Step Away From The Credit Card And Nobody Gets Hurt...

I have issues and I can't seem to stop.

It's not impulsive. I need all these things.

I need help because I'm spiraling out of control.

Not really, because what I really need are those really cute dark Diesel skinny jeans I bought with my new thigh-high chocolate brown suede Michael Kors boots and a white Vince t-shirt. I'll pair that with my new crocodile skin shoulder bag and the sexy, beige, short leather jacket from Vince that I bought to go with everything.


Listen, Fall is a buying season and I am just doing my part to help out our economy. So what I happen to find myself with the weekend off and I spent the entire two days shopping like it was a test and I was the class over achiever. Shame on My Guy for leaving me alone with the mall. Fall is a transition season, and most people find themselves in need of some fashion essentials to get them through to the winter. Six pairs of shoes this weekend. And YES, I needed them all.

My problem is that I have to have it all. It's not about needing them, it's about WANTING them. Yes, I'm getting that, and that, and that, and yes, of course, that. Oh yeah, and throw that in too! Why not. Since I lost some weight, it all looks good. Such a curse, I know, but I can't choose. It's a good thing Frick was busy all weekend or she would have been right there next to me and on my dime. My partner in crime and yes, the apple does not fall far from the tree. But how can I say no when it all looks soo cuuuuute on her???

I am very decisive too. Not one to waver, I either want it or not. And when I want it I don't turn back. I have to have it, and I'll figure out the logistics of the purchase later.

You know, I work all week and it's a good thing too, because I could not be let loose on a daily basis. Not me. Wrong girl. I am a sucker for beautiful things. Come to think of it, I work in a boutique that sells beautiful things. All. Day. Long. And I do pretty well at that boutique. On a daily basis.

Well, maybe not everyday.

Most days.

A lot of days.

I got issues.

Yes, but your "issues" make you you, so don't worry about it. :-)

I married one of the few women in the world who hates shopping, for which I am eternally grateful!

If there was EVER a doubt you're female, this post is LIVING PROOF.

Shoes will always be my downfall. Always.

So you shop.*shrug* So you shop and then have to move to a much bigger house in the Burbs with five walk in closets to hold all you have shopped for *shrug* it is a buyers market Candace. And you are stimulating the economy. I will go shopping too to do my part---I need a new cup of coffee.

I worked at a record store once, and I rarely left a shift without buying a disc or two - but this sounds more serious.

Well, like you said, you're just boosting that economy. One pair of shoes at a time.

Cora isn't much of a clothes hound.

Her shoe "issue" is with Sketchers.

Her 13 year old daughter would rather sit in the car and draw a picture rather than go to the mall shopping for clothes. (Except Hot Topic.)

I'm a lucky guy.

Do you owe more than you can pay off in a month? 3 months? 6 months? ... a year?

If you are heading to the right of that list worry, if not don't :-) I know people who had issues, hiding the clothes they bought, buying the same thing from more than one store, 100,000s of debt that is a real problem.

Real answer though - study your motives - if you are buying something surely to make yourself happier then think long and hard about it - if you can walk away at those moments then your are alright

Funny word veri is genes - which is probably where all these problems come from

I want those issues, but I want mine to come with someone else to pay the credit card bill. Is that an option? Please say yes.
