New clothes

I spent $18 on 5 shirts and 2 skirts today. Pretty cheap, huh?

I love buying clothes. I love the feel of fabrics, the colors, the fit. If I weren't a journalism major, I'd be a full-time shopper.

Now, I am not the "conventional" buyer. I go to Gabriel Brothers (a cut-rate department store), Wal*Mart, Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul, and the Salvation Army. I almost never go to the mall. Why?

The atmosphere, the lack of selection, but most importantly, the prices.

Go to Gabes, and some nice lady in line will compliment you on your purchases. Go to the mall and get pushed around a store by seventh-grade teenyboppers that are scoping out some "mega-hottie". No contest.

If truth be told, I like going to stores that have almost every brand known to mankind. From American Eagle to Victoria's Secret to L.E.I.

Talk about affordable. $18!! Who can beat that? Well, besides yard sales--I like them too.

When you love shopping, you have to buy cheap or just be broke. I want to keep going to school so I can't be broke. Believe me, I have been, and it just isn't fun when your car insurance bill comes and all you have are Levis and Sketchers as currency.

what?! Shopping excursion and I wasn't invited?! I am outraged. (actually, I don't have too much cash, but an ATM machine could fix that... ;)

We definetly have to make a shopping date sometime, ladies. I dig bargain shopping--Gabes is my place. Malls are nice, but entirely too expensive, and I end up leaving with an empty wallet, approximately 1.357 items for every $20 I spent, and a major case of window-shopping regret syndrome. (yes, I did just make that up :^)

Shopping... ahh, what bliss. Let me know if anyone does go out, and if I can come. I'm a great partner when shopping, too :) I'm a huntress, mwhahaha!
