Not So Shopaholic

Shopping was kinda a bust yesterday.


I'm not gonna lie - I think I just shop better alone than I did in a group. Both of the girls I was shopping with had pretty decent luck with their purchases but I was just not feeling it for whatever reason.

I exchanged the gold earrings from this post in for another pair.
They're SO hard to take a picture of because they're sparkly, but they're pretty and art-deco-y and gorgeous.

I also picked up this little gold/tan headband - I don't have any that color so I thought it was kinda cute... I wanted the black one but my friends said I needed another color.

The only other thing I bought was a pair of super-skinny jeans at Forever 21 - they're perfect for wearing tucked into boots because they are skin-tight!
You don't get a pic of these because they are skin-tight like whoa!! The best part of these jeans?? They're $9.50. You can buy them here if you are interested. And if you are interested, you can actually size down... I would normally be a size 6 or 4, and I got a size 27 which is roughly a size 4.

Basically, yesterday was a blah shopping day. Now I want to go back down and hit up the sales myself... is that bad? I think I'd come home with several more bags if I went to myself.

Do you all shop better alone or with a partner??

And also - I feel like I should have a blog sale. Or maybe just give away some of my goodies that I no longer wear. I should get on that asap. I have too many clothes!

I definitely shop better alone! Love those earrings - they are gorgeous!

Michelle said...

Seems like you scored some good deals! The earrings are beautiful!

I tend to do better shopping alone...well, I'm more impulsive, I suppose. I do like shopping with a friend, though.

Lis (from Lis Loves) and I seem to shop well together (okay, okay, so it's only been once, no twice, but Ulta doesn't count)...she & I are banned from The Gap, though. Well, I'm banning us...we can do some damage there.

I don't shop well in general. I shop online, generally. Plus, I am an ideal candidate for "What Not To Wear." I'm a bigger woman (size 16-18) and have no clue how to dress my shape and curves and so on. I don't even know what my "good features" are. It's not that I'm down on myself- I'm just clueless and, honestly, it isn't all that important to me. But if I had a planned out closet with outfits I could just choose from... that would be so nice!

Anyway. Off topic there. I shop online. :)

Love the earrings and the headband! I'm definitely an alone shopper. When there's other people around, I get to distracted to really shop for myself. But when it's just me...let's just say my bank account prefers me to shop in groups!

I'm definitely better at shopping alone. I tend to take forever to browse, try on and then decide what I want. I think it would torture most people to shop with me. I only occasionally subject my mom and sister to it - they're the only ones who can handle it. Oh, my dad too. He's a great shopper. I don't think he enjoys it, but he's endlessly patient and helpful. It's very sweet.

A blog sale or something would be fab since I am your size :) lol

I shop better alone. I feel restricted if I'm in a group for some reason.

PinkSass said...

I also shop better alone. When I'm in a group I feel like we are all going to like the same thing and usually the first person to find it gets it and then I get sad.

I guess I just want all the good clothes for me. :)

Mrs. Smith said...

I love shopping alone. I'll shop with my mom or sister... occasionally the husband. But no one else. I always feel guilty looking at things for myself when I'm with other people so I just end up buying nothing and feeling like I wasted time.

On another note, those earrings are cute!

SouthernBelleJM said...

I do better shopping alone too! However, when I do go with my girls, I find they will talk me into trying something on that I normally never would. So, sometimes, I end up finding something I love that I never would have thought I'd like before. Those earrings look cute!!!

brittany said...

I do shop better alone too. I feel like I can accomplish more and I won't feel rushed or things like that. Those earrings are so pretty btw! And $9.50 for jeans?! What a fabulous deal.

I cannot shop with friends. I mean, I can go and look at stuff, but I shop much better on my own. Sometimes I take FOREVER trying stuff on and analyzing outfits, so I hate making others wait.

I love the headband...oh and also, are those jeans comfortable because I think I would hate them on me lol.

etta said...

Feel free to send jewelry my way!

I haven't really enjoyed shopping for a while now. I haven't had the money to do fun shopping since freshman year of college. Ugh, I'm old and poor.

I like going shopping if it's me and one other person. We always have fun and do more giggling than shopping.

Blog Sale!

Kassie said...

I would love you to do a blog sale, but then I think that's because we're about the same size! And I love your clothes. :)

I'm not a very good shopper--my family says I shop like a boy. I don't particularly enjoy shopping, but I love clothes, so I kind of go in with my list, buy it, then leave as quick as I can. So I guess I shop better alone, since with friends they want to take awhile and look at everything!! lol. :)

Marc said...

I prefer to shop with a girl when I go shopping for clothes so I can get a good opinion and its a lot more fun, if a bit tiresome.

Ever since I started reading your blog I've started shopping more. I hate you for that but you are entertaining. Thankfully, I haven't eaten more because of all your delicious looking food.

Excuse me while I go buy this Jack Bauer bag I've been eyeing.

I shop better alone too! I love that headband!!! Adorable!

gCe said...

I am looking for jeans to wear with boots I will have to check forever 21

I ALWAYS shop better alone. Sometimes I beg friends to come to the mall with me just so I can keep myself from splurging to much. My friends all admire my self-control, but little do they know how much I buy when they're not around. :) I like shopping alone though because I feel like I can think purchases through and make sure I'm getting a good deal. (i.e. call my mom and say, "Mom? Can you Google this shirt for me and see if they have it cheaper somewhere else?")

Aly said...

I love those jeans! Sometimes I like shopping with other people because then I don't spend as much! But if I'm shopping alone, I don't have anyone to tell me to stop, so forget it! I spend too much!

sHp said...

Most of the time I prefer shopping alone. Maybe I'm a loner like that, or maybe not. Either way, I like to look, without pressure, and when I see something that I like, I get it, and leave. I've really taken to internet shopping of late - mostly because we don't live near any of my favorite shops :( So don't feel bad - shopping alone is fun...and sometimes very liberating :)
PS - LOVE the headband - I'm headband CA-RAZY right now!

I shop WAY better alone. I used to shop well with my best friend, but since she had kids, she doesn't enjoy it. Our solution is to grocery shop together :)

Andhari said...

I'm definitely a solitary shopper, especially if I wanna shop for clothes or shoes. Unless I already planned something specific to buy.

ps. love the jeans!:)

Kristin said...

That headband is to die for. Love your taste lady!
