Simple pleasures

Cheap Monday dress and FCUK Acorn necklace c/o Zalando.co.uk (who also sell fab Jeffrey Campbell shoes, drooool) , Rayban culbmasters c/o Smart Buy Glasses and Turtle necklace c/o Delilah Dust

My friends have often told me that I have a problem.
I asked 'is it my addiction to Nutella?', they said no.
I asked 'is it my unabashed love for feline faces on t shirts?', they said no.
I asked 'is it my short attention span?', I'm not sure what they replied, I got distracted by an ice cream van. So after various guesses, the truth came out, apparently I have a shopping problem. Many attempts have been made to curb this apparent issue, many supposed 'interventions', but apart from a successful 1 month shoe ban (which became redundant when I bought 3 pairs of shoes the day it ended) those have failed. I have shrugged off these mentions of my shopping problem, because that's really very subjective. I don't see shopping as a problem at all, call it denial if you wish. Now I've also received a lot of comments asking how I afford all my clothes.
Well dear readers, the truth is...I don't. Now I know that my youthful appearance says otherwise, but I am actually a 45 year old hoarder who is deeply in debt. My debt stems not only from the previously mentioned Nutella issue, but also this shopping addiction. 
I hope you can all take something from my 45 years of experience in hoarding (3,000 nutella jars, 47 cats and 3 Banarama singles later) and realise that a shopping problem is not a problem unless you consider it one.
Embrace the clothes.
(within reason)
However, to placate my friends, I have decided to wear an outfit that consists entirely of things I didn't buy. Take that, shopaholics anonymous.

  4. Haha what a way to look at it, and I agree - it's only a problem if you consider it one! That looks extremely relaxing and comfortable too!

  9. My mother always says the same thing, and my boyfriend too. And my sister to name some. I means I really get a bit surprised when after a shopping day I come home and find out that I have tons of shirt I never wear: when I tryied that flamingo printed tee shirt I was sure I had no t shirt at home! -.-
