Which One Are You?: Shopping Habits Edition

I don't know if it's allowed in in English language to use the question mark right beside the colon, but I just did in that heading! Lol! So, I got the most dynamic and most beautiful sisters anyone could ever ask for. They are amazing and have been with me forever and now, it's time to put them on blast! (Sorry girls, you know what it is. I still love you all muchly *evil snickers*) I am going use them as my pivots for discussing SHOPPING HABITS today. YAYYYY!!!! I choose to start with the most abnormal one because I think she hasn't even realized HOW anomalous she is. LMAO!

If you shop A LOT but still never find anything to wear, OR if you find yourself returning stuff (or thinking about returning them) OR you're always hating what you've bought afterwards. Or if you have unworn clothes that your friends end up wearing for you after a year because they see you've got short term amnesia? Then you are not alone! Join the inDECISIVE DEZs. lol


(I can't possibly spell Anu's name in plural form or I'll be seen as vulgar iniit). So! These are the ones that just HATE shopping but LOVE to look nice! They can shop for anything but clothes. They hate to join queues to pay and don't even take them to Oxford street on Boxing day (speaking from experience). A woman that hates to stress it for her looks, I just can't quite fathom this. Anyway, if this is you, welcome!


Now, if you're a QQ, you're either straight up smart OR straight up stupid! I'll tell you why. You use shopping as your relief therapy for many things, especially being broke! lol This is nice if you know what you want so you just go for it without regrets. Butif you go shopping real quick after getting a few bucks and then become an inDECISIVE DEZ? Sorry for you! QQs also love the world's largest online market- EBAY! They target certain clothes and watch them religiously until 3 minutes to the end of bidding time then you see them acting like they're on crack! QQs' theme basically like Rich Boy is 'Get clothes, new clothes. It's what you been waiting on!' Gotta luv the QQs!

*Yawn* I know Mautin's gonna kill me for this but I don't know why people in this category tend to notice fads after they've
died down! MMs probably don't even know what's going on outside their immediate interests hence they just wear mundane stuff... Pretty much Sears-type people. Shopping with MMs takes a lot of convincing and reminding them that clothes look good on them and that sequins are actually not awkward but very pretty!

Hmmm... the title says it all! My cousin is someone I can always trust to NEVER find knock-offs in her wardrobe! The ease at which she buys labels and hands them over to you when you're with her can make you deceptive with yourself! lol So HMHs are the ones that just go straight to Selfridges because they know they can't be let down by Louis Vuitton and Versace. *Cough cough then sigh*

(Yes, I have to blow my horn because some of you don't know about me yet, lol). EEs are very efficient shoppers. If they go shopping and don't come back with amazing buys then something is wrong with the fashion/commercial system and never them! lol When my friends go shopping and say there was 'nothing in the stores' they also add 'but we don't know about you' because EEs always find diamond in the dirt! And most times, the diamond is at the price of dirt too! (I think that trait is courtesy of DAV!D =) ) I have walked out of Winners before with a huge bag containing 2 tops, 2 handbags, a blazer, 2 belts, a pair of shoes and receipt saying $85! Best believe, EEs are wikid shoppers!

I had to make a category for this one. He's such a killer when it comes to shopping!

I think this one's definitely an honorable mention considering he's a guy and where we came from. I've known him for about 7 years now. He has grown so much and frankly the day it dawned on me that we had our very own male Fashion Vanguard was one faithful summer I was visiting family in London. Shafiyi came from Geneva to say hi and of course went shopping. My mouth dropped when I went through his shopping bags! Gracious! Impeccable taste! And it was just EFFORTLESS. He's also a guy that can give women sincere Fashion advice without judging with too much testosterone! So you're a Sophistocrat Shafiyi when you can ALWAYS handle the heat of fashion and stay on top of your game regardless of what's popping around you!

Okay people, I'm done here. I'll still look out for more interesting personalities and share them with you all. Watch out because it might be you on here! Deuces!

Oh EE in the house and I must admit we can't really be seperated from QQs LOL!!! Cos I'm on that ebay tip as well...

and boy do I miss thrift stores...hiss England is lacking or maybe it's just this my razz area but I bet u the minute I touch down in Yanks, my hood to be precise, it's off to the thrift shops..there's a thrill in finding stuff and immediately knowing how u'd pair it or what alteration u'd make to have the best fit.

One last thing, I need to see that nappiness more u know u r my think I have like an inch of new nappy growth...woohooo!!! expect the new look

i love your blog!!!!! how can you say that MM's are boring? no we are not, we are so ahead of the times that it looks like we are actually behind. you know trends re-circle!

Adunni said...

Speaking of shopping habits David. I went to the vintage store and bought something in LITERALLY 2mins. Literally. See why I don't like shopping? Anyway, I didn't even wear it for what I planned. I need me some David in my life :-p

How do you know what NOT to buy?! Ugh!

DAVID said...

@ SL: You bet!

@ anon: Trends recycle, true. But that would bring us to one of the most annoying questions ever... Does the egg come before the chicken? (I have my own answer to that but I'll let you think about that yourself). Keep rocking, MMs!

@ adunni: How do you know what NOT to buy?
For me, I wouldn't buy stuff that's just trendy or bogus. Go for things that can live in your wardrobe for ages and stand the test of time. I raised you like that didn't I? lol

Yep, everyone needs DAV!D whether they realize it or not!

Ha Ha
I loved reading this...
I think an Indecisive dez-it takes so long for me to shop and i notice i end of buying the same thing i looked at and discarded 2 hours ago... and oh yes, i can buy something from the and absolutely hate it when i get home. I love dressing up n all but it takes so long to shop so sometimes i just never mind...
