Buy of the week

I was walking through a department store headed straight to bath department when an indescribably gorgeous hot pink shoe caught my eye. Do I 1) ignore them and get to my original destination, 2) touch them, hold them, check out the price, or 3) ask the attendant for my size and give them a try? I chose three, they were just too cute to pass by. These BCBGirls wedges come in Black, Oil Blue, and Bright Pink. The department store did not have my size nor did they carry them in blue, but I'm sure Zappos would be able to assist me. I don't think I can live without them! Oh what color to choose...

Happy V-day to me!

I came home from work tonight to find a bouquet of assorted flowers on my door step. Isn't that so sweet! There's no card attached and I just moved here so not quite certain these are meant for me, but they've found a good home over here, thanks!

Where my shopaholics at?

January retail numbers were released today on Wall Street at way way below than expected returns. Experts say these dire results prove that we are currently indeed in a recession. Redbook Research, which tracks and reports analysis on retail sales was one source to deliever the depressing data today. So I'm wondering where are all my fellow shopaholics? Sure times are tough, but there's nothing like a cute new pair of heels or a hot new dress to get you out of that funk and forget about your problems (at least temporarily).

Doesn't she looks happy, not a care in the world and I'm with her! Although most of my shopping is done on credit, which could be bad and a big reason why we're in this mess in the first place.

Gone are the days when credit card solicitations and approvals are like blinking. Some of those who have them are breaking out a sharp shiny object where unless you're Johnny Depp does not look good with any outfit. So I urge my fellow shopaholics to get back out there, our economy needs you!
