Shocking...ermmm..Shopping tales

Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choos,Marc Jacobs...what do all these things have in common....apart from being bigggg brand names...(and I mean huge)...they are conspicuous by thier absence in my wadrobe ;)...Big deal u say...'like I have them in my wadrobe'??....I knw I kwn...'m being a snob here...but oh well....

Cut to 1987: A blue and white frock...frilleless ( thank god) , very comfy and one happy kid playing in her building ka garden (ermmm...with 2 exasperated parents looking on )...I thnk I had good dressing sense back then...coz tht was the only dress I didnt keep picking at...(in the 80's frills were the height of fashion I swear :p..and one which I reallly really disiked :D )

Cut to 1996: When a li'll girl with pig tails finds florescent yellow pants 'where its at'
Cut to 1998: Now not so little...girls fashion sense is improving steadily...but she has a lot...and I mean a lotttt of black tshirts in her wadrobe :D

Cut to 2007/08/09 : Our dear protagonist has improved her fashion sense tremendously...with words like GAP,AE,A&F and New York and COmpany thrown in for good meaure :)

How the sudden change u ask...well money my friend is the answer ( oh tht and being in a place which has a huge mall and actually nothing much else for entertainment= to one happy girl+one maxed out card...which I am trying to repay btw :D)

yess fashion...bigg this a girl maketh ...( see how I cleverly slid old english saying in :D )....I have been a shopping crazy nut all my much so that my mom almost fainted in surprise ( this before running at me with a broomstick :P ) when she saw all my 'Umericalenthu pannina shopping' (Shopping done in the US)...many are the times I have had to give advice to 'aethetically chalenged' friends

Case in point:

Incident 1:

Me: Hey 'Honey Bee' ... ( Scresms loudly as N gets onto the bus)
N: Now why on earth would u call me tht D...and r the good old days of saying 'hello' and all gone forever :D ??
Me: No da...u have a shirt which is with stripes...yellow and black how on earth..wha??? :O
N: * sighs in exasparation * ...and kinda desists wearing the shirt to school ever again (also because the whole bus heard me scream...including many of he classmates/friends...sooo :D )
however the seetie tht N is she still wears the shirt for me ( btw miss u tons N :) :) :) )

Incident 2:
Me: You need  a better dressing sense...why on earth did you think those pants went with that shirt...??
G: * Sighs* and * literally begs * plz dont go off on u fashion rant again...i'll take u next time we go shopping...and he was as good as his word :)

Now which brings me to the point...I want to become a 'Personal Shopper'...wha?? u ask...I wanna shop for rich ladies at bi
g brand name stores ...and hget paid for it...imagine....pure true bliss :) :)

Cut to 2009: Girl standing outside A&F drooling t the merchandise and walking away :D  ( yes recession hurts everyone ) :D

I would think the only thing worse than not being able to buy something you want is to pick and choose stuff you like and then watch others buy them! So personal shopper would be my worst career choice!

@ Prashanti: I wonder if you are talking 'bout 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'...or is this a different book. Also 'm reading this book...'Joy luck club' by Amy Tan I thnk...nice one...perhaps u've read it :) ?

@bala:manalova,jimmy hcoova :P ??

@Liberal: I read ur post 'bout ur mom helping u choose well I actually guess it would be the worst choice for u...although I swear by god its like heaven for me :) :)
