Since I would prefer to refrain from using personal pictures of my friends and I, I decided to stick this picture of LC and Audrina in just to have some form of visual aid for this post :P Anyhow...I wanted to blog about the importance of having a GOOD SHOPPING BUDDY. I used to be one of those girls who could only really shop when they were alone but ever since meeting DZ, I feel like I need her to be there when I'm shopping. Not only do we catch up on gossip together, we take time to really discuss what we like and dislike. We both have our own unique styles but we're also both open to what the other person likes. Shes there to let me know if something is cute or if its fug and she's also very good at reminding me of the things I dont need! Usually when I find out anything about anything, DZ is the first person I run to with the news and really...who else can I have the following gchat conversation with (copy and pasted with only minor edits...)?!
me: so anyhoo
when i come out of my shopping probation
i've decided to try to avoid shoes and bags and go for clothes
DZ: omg...me too!
i realized it this weekend as i was dying in my bed
DZ: me too!
when i was doing my laundry
me: i realized i have nothing to go with my shoes and bags
DZ: i realized that i really need to invest in my clothes
me: well i do have dresses
but i want more clothes in general
and i realized
when i buy clothes i always think...no its too expensive
but buy shoes and bags in a heartbeat
so what i'm going to try to do is aim that money towards clothes

DZ: yeah, i realized that i always say "oh, i won't have anywhere to wear that to"
but when that times comes, i always end up with nothing to wear
so when do u get off of probation?
can i use this conversation in my blog?
While we do sort of sound like ditzy, spoiled brats...this is such a DZ and JJ conversation (and I assure you we aren't airheaded brats)! In closing I would just like to say that the two markers, in my opinion, of a good shopping buddy are:
1. Credible taste in style: Be real...you dont want someone with bad taste giving you pointers now do you??
2. Independent thinker with strong opinions: You want someone to tell you the truth. Dont trust the ones that tell you everything is cute cus thats basically impossible and I personally like to avoid the ones who dont have opinions of their own and just buy whatever you buy :P
