The Day I Lost My Will to Shop!

Yep, I think it may have happened, it has come…the day I lost my will to shop!

Okay, so maybe I didn’t really lose it. It was taken from me!

By the most unlikely source. I found my shopping krypton!

She looked harmless…

In fact she lulled me into thinking it would be fun!

Evil woman…she nearly sucked ALL joy from me!

Sneaky she was. In fact we had been shopping together in the past.

I really didn’t think that when I got a text from my DEAR (and at this moment I am using the term loosely) friend Sarah saying “HELP! going away for a girls weekend in Melbourne. Need something to wear. Can you come shopping with me” that would be the beginning of the end. After all, recently she needed something to wear to a friend’s birthday that was a little fancy and we just went shopping in my wardrobe. AND that had been kind of fun!

I went to work early so I wouldn’t feel guilty about taking a bit longer at lunch. I had let the shop know we were coming and given them so idea of what to pull for Sarah to try on. I couldn’t have imagined that by the time I got home I was going to look like this.

I Need a Drink!

I Need a Drink!

Which is a slight improvement over how I looked at the end of the experience. Stunned.

Which is actually better than I looked about an hour into it!



Sarah, I love you. You are a fantastic friend but I am CERTAIN the Fashion Mister paid you to wear me down.

I think I need another drink, so I can cry in my booze over the day I lost my will to shop!
