Hey, Dash here!
So this is something that I realised just recently. I turn to fashion and shopping for comfort. Yeah… Okay, okay before you lable me as crazy hear me out for a second.
I remember once after breaking up with a boyfriend of mine, I wasn’t heart broken but I was pretty upset, so what did I do? Did I humiliate him with some dreadful pranks? Nope. (though that did cross my mind, but let’s face it I don’t have the skill to pull off something like that.) Did I start chatting up all his friends? No, wrong again.
I went shopping.
I didn’t even have to think, one second we were breaking up and the next I was standing it the queue at the check out in Bershka with two new tops, a jumper and a pair of cute jeans in hand.
Do any of you guys do this?
There’s something about buying and wearing something, let’s say a new pair of heels that makes me feel powerful and energised. Is this just me?
Like, I will literally shop or more likely window shop to cheer myself up. ( Because why would I need to talk about my feeling when I can buy this gorgeous skirt that can say my feelings for me?).
I honestly don’t think it’s a bad thing. I mean when you really think about shopping it’s really like this big social event, I suppose.
Usually I’ll get to talk to lots of new people that I don’t know, I’ll get to have a little catwalk style party in the dressing rooms trying on outfits and at the end of the day I get to go home with some lovely new clothes.
What could honestly be better?
A boyfriend? Nah. I’ll take a new purse or pair if shoes any day, please.
This can’t just be me though can it?, who else turns to shopping for a bit of tlc? Let me know in the comments. What are you’re favourites shops and what item in your wardrobe makes you feel like a million euro?
