Things I have learnt....

Women shop differently to men. My husband says I generalise a lot - which is true. But I think this statement is fairly accurate. It seems to be easier for men to shop than women - despite the fact that as the fairer sex, our choices and styles are far more varied and colourful.
Here's an example. I bought a dress for a wedding the other week (Sabatini in store now). I agonised over it - did it make my stomach stick out? Did my ample backside look...ampler? The whole process took me an hour - for one dress. Last weekend Al ( husband) and I went shopping for him. 2 pairs of jeans and 4 shirts later and he was done - in an hour! But other than the time, the other obvious thing - no questions about how things looked or needing to look in the mirror at every angle. Just grabbed the right size, threw it on just to check the size then purchase.
So imagine shopping like that? No wishing we were taller/shorter, slimmer/curvier, bustier/bustless.....but then, where would the fun be in that?!

  1. Hahaha! I love it. Great post!
    We women are beautiful, complex and intruguing individuals - we can take a seemingly ordinary shopping experience and make it an exhilarating (and sometimes painful) adventure...
    maybe our shopping is a metaphor for the way we live our lives?? - an exhilarating and sometimes painful adventure!
    Hmmm... shopping is deep! ... Boys just don't get it!
