The fabulous Marisa from Wear Your Vitamins tagged me in Confessions of a Shopaholic, which is a fun little cyber game of tag.
So here we go…
Do you consider yourself a shopaholic?
Oh hells to tha yes! While I lack the dough to be a bona-fide shopaholic, I love digging for a bargain on sales racks, TJ Maxx, Target and mostly my favorite department store ever, Von Maur.
Success shopping the sales rack!
How would you classify your style?
Fuchsia. Sequins. Skulls. Leopard. Gaudy. Flamboyant. Rocker. Edgy. Jeans. Heels. Flashy, not trashy (although others would probably BEG to differ).
Girls night out attire. Express jeans, $19.99. Target top, $17.99.
Juicy Couture collared striped shirt, $34.99. Skull and crossbones patch purchased at Michael’s, $2.99.
Who’s afraid of a sequin pant? Not me! Express pant, $24.99.
Leopard print beneath clear sequins? Um, yes please! Target dress, $34.99.
What store can you not leave without buying something from?
Target. Hands down. Whether it’s shampoo, a greeting card, a Mossimo black tank (a staple in my wardrobe) or a banana. I rarely leave without a bag (which is really doing me a favor because I need plastic bags in order to scoop Ted’s litter pan. Two birds, one stone people!).
Where do you find your best deals?
Sales, sales, sales! Macy’s, Target, Von Maur, TJ Maxx, Dillards semi-annual shoe sale.
What designer are you willing to splurge on?
It’s a three-way between Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. McQ is all about the skulls baby (I feel like the designs were sometimes created with yours truly in mind – as if). I also crave the luxury and glamour of Chanel – and received a pair of booties from my fairy god mother earlier this year (read about it, click here). And Louis…oh Louis….I ran a marathon (yes a full fucking 26.2 miles) in a bet to obtain a Louis Vuitton purse (that saga will be posted another day).
Caution: May cause an extreme strut.
Do you have a go-to shopping outfit?
Jeans. Always. In the winter, my kick-ass Coach motorcycle boots (waaaaay expensive but have worn approximately 268 days per year for the last five years. Worth it!). Summer time calls for Tory Burch flops (I scored at a deep discount shoe store).
My alternative shit kickers.
Tory Burch flip flops, $29.99.
What is your guilty pleasure?!
I’m a beauty product whore. I love trying new things – different colored lipsticks (love MAC pigments), eye shadows (Urban Decay is my fave brand), lip gloss (just found my new love that doubles as a lip stain as well as a gloss – LIP TAR), foundations (Too Faced BB Cream is my new fave and I adore Make Up For Ever HD foundation), nail polish (OPI, China Glaze are my faves)….this list could go on for days.
LIP TAR. 100% vegan, cruelty free and one application lasts all day. Sold in sets or separately at Sephora.
What is the one piece of clothing you can’t live without?
Of course leopard jeans never hurt.
Who is your style icon?
Gwen Stefani – love her L.A.M.B. line.
L.A.M.B. leather wrist watch purchased years ago at TJ Maxx for $89.99.
So there are my confessions. Guilty as charged!
