from my clothing line (herro hachi)'s look book
I realized there are several types of shoppers and I have been each and every one of these shoppers at different stages in my life.
The Buy Now, Think Later Shopper: You see it on the manikin, it's beautiful, you can totally see yourself wearing it, you buy it without a second thought, go home to try it on and realize it either looks horrible on you or doesn't fit you.
The Fad Diet Shopper: You realize you have a shopping problem so you stop shopping cold turkey. One week later, a beautiful pair of shoes breaks you and you end up leaving the mall with 10 bags.
The Peer Pressure Shopper: You bought something expensive so to justify your purchase and make yourself feel better, you convince your friend that they need to buy something too.
The Compliment Eating Shopper: Your friend says "OMG! That is so cute on you, it totally makes your butt look hot" and you head straight to the cashier without a second thought.
The Practical Shopper: You like it, you'll sleep on it, you'll think about it the next day, think about whether or not you really need it, think about the value for money, think about other more important things you could buy for the same price, sleep on it again and end up not buying it.
The Leave It To Fate Shopper: If it's at the branch closer to home, in my size, and it's on sale… then it's totally meant to be.
In last weekends case, I was the "Leave It To Fate" shopper deciding that if it was available in the branch closer to home, it was meant to be mine. I went to that branch the next day and it wasn't there. (boo.)
What Kind of Shopper Are You?
