Lets go shopping!

To honestly tell you the truth, the last time i went shopping...like REALLY shopping...was...

Pause*

when i say Really shopping i mean buying clothes uncontrollably for 5 hours straight till i end up with a huge migraine, i actually have to carry painkillers with me on shopping sprees because it gets really painful around the 4th hour and i am actually not joking!


Play*

...... like last year summer...very disturbing considering that i am a diagnosed shopaholic ...unfortunately, being an unemployed so to speak TAILOR has curbed my habits....so instead of going out to buy clothes i make em or revamp vintage outfits and thus the sweettt rush of attaining new fresh numbers has been ignored..... and damnit i miss it.

SO MUCH.


I have never been a shoe person...ever....its like i am really attracted to very expensive shoes and truth be told if i cant get those due to the sheer brokesness of MY bank.... i am not arsed to get any other shoes :(....it has to be a certain shape, color, design(( i like weird shoes)...and i am just never satisfied with just any other shoes....so when i do get shoes...i buy vintage, i have this DVF shoes i love, got it at a vintage store in philadelphia(Retrospect on south street), it was sooo hot! WAS instead of IS because it is now dead...unfortunately the strap came off -typical vintage lol.... and this ankle boots from buffalo exchange in Houston last year..black soft leather..absolutely gorgeous...its all in the shape babes!....i also dig urban outfitters and miss sixty shoes...err and Zara sometimes..and TARGET!..ok maybe not so much for shoes but i love target...its like Disney land to me..only God knows why??....so much stuff!...i love stuff!

So i pick stuff here and there when i have something of importance to attend, but i haven't really shopped like i NNNEEEEED TO...wait hold UP!... i don't understand is how a person could have a job with a steady paycheck of over 3000 dollars every two weeks...okay even about 1500 and still have a tacky ass wardrobe its so annoying...i just think people really don't choose the right stores to buy clothes from...its like....if you can afford BEBE why shop at LVLX?....or at least shop at forever 21! - I am digressing here...but i and my sister, Joan visited forever 21 today, frankly i gave up on that store a long time ago but going in today i was pleasantly SURPRISED, i mean it has so much potential, i saw things i liked, wanted to buy and bought sef and so on and so forth, but the problem with forever 21 is in their presentation! granted H&M has more clout than Forever 21 but 21 actually has more clothes! but the poor way the mannequins were dressed plus the haphazard arrangement of the clothes turns people off...at least it does me...its like war going into that store plus you are a 100% positive that someone is wearing your ish at that party tonight! same thing with H&M but i still love H&M, regardless :)...i wish they could hire me to dress those damn mannequins!..i would do it for free sef.......

Back to my bitchin' - Arden B exists, Express, limited (is there still one), banana republic, Benetton, Fcuk, shit Jcrew!...if i see one more working girl with a jacked up closet i am going to scream!!!....shame on you!...Money is meant to be spent on clothes...you first please!....then the rent and the carnote...i keed lol.....


"some can shop but have no money, some have money but cannot shop, some have money and can also shop...damn those lucky bastards"


Anyway when i am feeling BROKE i like to poor extra pepper on my open sores by window shopping online, PLANNING so to speak for the future, basically spending my money before it hits my bank account - i cant wait...be it this week, next week - two years from now...WHO KNOWS??!!...the life of the unemployed is HARD!...i have never ever not worked since i came to this country, my choice..simply because i LIKE being in control of my person, i am sorry when you don't work, you are someones bitch...all you do is just WAIT...and try to be considerate...when its the fruit of your own labour you can afford to be stupid about things but i am entirely too responsible to take advantage of my parents generosity ya know...it ain't easy and i feel that my love for expensive footwear should not be their burden....it can be HALF of their burden lol but not all...haha..


Note - Ladies please dont spend all your cash on Gucci purses and sandals and forget about your clothes- nice purses, shoes and some crappy dress -- err nah - let every part of your body enjoy - your purse should not look better than your person...just a friendly word of advice.



I love girlshop and intermix, my top two online stores.....there is an intermix in Georgetown and a girl shop in Chelsea?...i cant remember, somewhere in new york....i have gotten a couple of stuff from both stores but only so little because their ish is PRICEY!...my heart starts beating EXTRA fast if i spend over 500 dollars on anything, my ass aint balling like that yet please....not just yet...

soooooo lemme show you what i imaginary bought...




I have been looking for totes for school - carrying my laptop bag, school bag and handbag makes me look like a bag lady...so i think these bags from urban outfitters work, the gray one is on mad sale - PLUS it will go great with your black skinny jeans..so yay!- embrace the rock alternative look!


These are miu miu totes - i love butter cream and coffee leather...sigh ** - so soft - these purses go for about 1,445 dollars, they are stashed away in my imaginary dreams...


These are urban outfitter shoesies, i love the gentlemanly styled shoe goes great with skinny jeans as well or tights...


I dont really go for white jackets like that...very dramatic...but i love this burberry coat..its detailed in a very undramatic way...love it.

I love simple black dresses and this one on the left is mad simple...granted to rock this very covered look you have to have BANGING long legs...but does that matter to me - HELL NO!!...if its fine its mine...i love it - middle dress is by RM - its cocktail and i love it - interesting pockets though - the last dress - i love the color - love the fabric- WISH i could work with fabric like that i would Destroy it lol...but i dont really fancy the length- it would be shortened instanta! - oh and the ruffles are divine!

These shoes are quite opposite but i love em both - i cant remember quite where i saw them but on the left i believe is urban outfitters - i like that shape of shoe -its usually very comfortable and very 80s and i also like that extra strip of silver around the edge - on the right is more elegant - are those heels blue if they are i love it - i like the woven look of the shoe - its me on a laid back i am rich bitch day..

i am searching desperately for an outfit for my new yrs celebration in NYC - that red dress is it please - its modest yet sexy - love it - i dont really love the middle dress on the mannequin but i know it would look good when draped on a real body - its very loose and its jewel toned and i am so in love with jewel colors this season - the gray dress is easy to wear, chic without much effort!

i ran across several casual jackets/coats on sale in urban outfitters - i like prints, muted colors and easy wear. The plaid belted coat was like 44 dollars?...hmm...well i know it wasnt more than 60 bucks...its stylish, a nice length and the neckline is awesome....

Yay so checkout!!!

Meanwhile i caught Forbes 20 billionaire heiresses today on E! ....*BLANK STARE*......some peoples lives eh??!!...HAI!.....i spent an HR wondering HOW, HOOW to reach that level....its almost impossible...unless i happen to trap a billionaire or something and HOW POSSIBLE IS THAT?!!!....i mean damn, this world is too unequal!...and with that i bid you all ADIEU!!!!
