Frequently Asked Questions: Don't you just love to shop?

I do, I love to shop. If I'm shopping for you, that is. Shopping for myself is another matter. I hate it. Hate. It.

My stepbrother's wedding is coming up quickly and I had nothing to wear (that fits, that is). It's an evening wedding, somewhat formal, so I needed something sleek and pretty.

When Hubby reluctantly agreed to go to the mall with me today to pick out a dress, I promised him that it wouldn't take long. Besides, I told him, I'd rather have a root canal than go clothes shopping. He was quick to remind me that I've never had a root canal, but that's beside the point.

I hate shopping so much that when I find something I like, I buy it in every color that works with my wardrobe. And consider my job done. That's how much I hate shopping. The shopping gene is nowhere in my chromosomal makeup and somehow I'm still female. Go figure.

Anyway, we ended up at Nordstrom's, because we have a new one in our area and I'd never shopped there before. What a pleasant surprise! The customer service that they are known for was just as wonderful as I'd heard, and helped make an onerous task more pleasant.

In no time at all I had three dresses picked out (all black, of course!) and let Hubby pick his favorite. Here's what he picked.

No, that's not me, silly, that's a model. I wish I could wear a size 0 like the one in the pic, but the size that I bought is just a tad larger.

Now I can mark that task off my to-do list. Whew! Huge weight is lifted off my shoulders.

And tomorrow I can get back to the fun shopping. Shopping for you!

  1. I love it I have one like it only just three tiers in red, very slimming! Enjoy both the dress and your night out!

  2. Hi Pam,
    I'm not a shopper for myself either. But (I'm laughing) I'd rather shop then get a root canal (I've had one) :)
    That dress is just stunning! I just LOVE it.
    Hope you had a nice weekend (besides the shopping!)

  3. What a gorgeous dress !Love it ! :-)

  4. I love shopping - but not for clothes. Even before I was plus size, clothes didn't fit right! But I love shopping for my home and for others.

    I hope you feel wonderful in your new dress and have a blast at the wedding.

  5. Hi! I just found your blog from Rondell at Tomatoe Creek Prims, and I just love it! I saw your post about comments, and as someone new to blogging I totally relate; so I wanted to NOT be shy and say hi:)

    I personally love to shop, for anything and everything...which is a problem sometimes:) Your dress is lovely and I hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding.

    I would also love to visit your store. I'm a NC girl too...what area is Indian Trail in? I have no sense of direction, but if it is near the Hickory area, I'd love to come by!

    Have a wonderful day!
    <3 Lauren

  6. Cute dress! I would much rather shop for things for the house than things for my wardrobe.

    And I would rather shop than get a root canal! LOL!
